Very happy to hear the topic this week. I have had a rough week so far, with a disruption of routine and daily MKE work due to being on the road for several days traveling. Now nearly caught up again, but still trying to find and re-establish some feeling of normality and equilibrium. Feeling very out of sorts due to not enough rest, not feeling well (virus?) and juggling travel, family visit after arrival, and work responsibilities.
Liking Og Mandino’s Scroll 4 more as the days go by. It resonates within me, and I agree with most all (except perhaps the “total divorce.”) I’ve successfully listened daily to “The Strangest Secret,” which is racking up the number of books read for this year. It’s still surprising to me at how much wisdom there is contained in that half hour. It’s impressive to me that Earl Nightingale built a company and started the personal development market with that recording, and it’s still relevant and popular after six decades.
I confirm that I accept the call! I acknowledge that I am on my own hero’s journey. Five years ago, I had a hard time relating to that… at all. I just couldn’t get my head around it. Guess I just had too much “cement.” But, now I’ve come to terms with it, and have embraced it. Still not totally comfortable with it, though, but I’m on the journey, and up for the adventure.
I didn’t come this far to stop or go back again… Reminds me of the Israelites in the desert after escaping slavery in Egypt. But they weren’t ready for the promised land, and were stuck wandering in the desert for 40 years, when they could have made it in a couple weeks. (God, please help me finish the process of removing all of “Egypt” from me in the next few weeks! I want to finally go into my promised land. I’ve already been wandering for 37 years. Elevate, enhance, enlarge, and expand my thinking and capabilities to serve and grow others to create impact, legacy, significance, and fulfillment. Restore to me the years that the locusts have eaten, and open the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing that there shall not be room to receive it. I’m ready!)
