I’m reaching out to you feeling…very complete.
I feel complete because this is the last episode of the first season of Forging Fortune. Because it is the culmination of a lifetime of work and wandering around, wringing my hands trying to figure out how I can help. I’ve started so many things. But this one, if only for a year, I saw it through. And it’s made a difference. Hundreds of downloads and hundreds of letters prove this podcast is making a difference.
So, for the month of December, I’m going to honor my natural cycle and take the time to rest and introspect. But I am going into this period of rest feeling complete.
On January 11 of this year, the very beginning of this year, I was buried under the weight of years and years - decades - of overwork, exhaustion, and self-denial. I didn’t know who I was anymore, and I wasn’t able to keep doing what I was doing. It was a dark time. So, to be not even a full year beyond that point, looking into a future that can’t be anything but bright, fulfilling, and powerfully impactful, I am so very grateful, invigorated, and childishly excited.
As you look into your future, and our future, and make plans and demands, just remember that possible is a limiting belief. When you share your big ideas, your big vision, people will be intimidated. They’ll be intimidated because they don’t want things to change. Or they’ll be intimidated because they’ve already given up the fight and your commitment says something about them that they don’t want to hear.
So they’ll tell you it’s impossible.
But it isn’t true. And your job is not to figure out whether or not realizing your vision is possible. Your job is to stay the course, to stay committed, and figure out howit’s possible.
“Possible” is a limiting belief.
