A quiet entrepreneur interviewed by Malcolm Gladwell at Sparkling Hill Resort & Spa 20 April 2030
Who would have thought that such a sophisticated author would be interviewing a quiet entrepreneur from Beautiful British Columbia. Malcolm wanted to interview a person who has not only helped others but is also successful in life. Someone who has achieved liberty and autonomy. Sparkling Hill Resort & Spa is her favorite place to be when not making a difference in the world i.e., giving money or time to her favorite causes. Helping others has really made a difference in her life and that ripple effect has helped many others over time. This reminds her every day of what is truly important in life. She told Malcolm of a great story that came from a course she took many, many years ago where the instructor used a very powerful exercise. The first person lit one candle and used that one candle to light two other candles. These two burning candles lit four new candles and it went from there until the entire room was an ocean of beautifully burning candles. One person can make a difference and affected many people’s lives without even realizing it. The ripple effects that one person can make can be far reaching and magnificent.
One of the greatest laws in the Universe, discussed in MKE chapter 4 section 21, “The more we give the more we shall get; we must become a channel where by the Universal can express activity. The Universe is constantly seeking to express itself, to be of service, and it seeks the channel whereby it can find the greatest activity, where it can do the most good, where it can be of greatest service to mankind.” This is something she lives by, to give to others and to be of service. To be of service to others, tells the Universe she understands the Universal law i.e., the more you give, the more the Universe rewards you. Not in the way you think for example money, cars, houses, and material things but instead she is provided with a feeling of abundance in happiness, life experiences, friendships and sense of being present in the moment. At the end of the day wonderfully positive life experiences and making her life what she wants it to be.
Malcolm took time to speak with someone who quietly goes through the world and lives this Law to the fullest. It wasn’t always that way. In the past, she took other wonderful courses, read books, listened to recordings and anything that felt wonderful. These things have helped her, for sure, feel good in the moment but these positive feelings didn’t always last for very long. For others, taking these courses, worked really well quiet entrepreneur wanted something more. So over time the Universe revealed a different path that would provide what she was looking for. Every minute, hour, day and year took her to where she needed to be. So now she has a different mindset, and in so many ways she is in a different place. With this generosity of spirit, the belief that happiness, life experiences, friendships and sense of being present in the moment is true abundance subsequently financial abundance also magically appeared. She has helped so many others in so many incalculable ways. Perhaps these thoughts will inspire Malcolm with his next book. Either way it was a wonderful time and a wonderful interview. Everyone watching or being part of the interview learned something. Others realized that there is another wonderful path, Malcolm realized this was something he was unaware of and the quiet entrepreneur remembered how grateful she was to learn about this route less travelled that brought others and her so much happiness and abundance.
