3 Things

This past week I began the concrete moves toward a fairly risky and big change in my life. I’ll talk more about it later here, but if you follow me on the Twitters, than you probably know what I’m talking about. But after I finally did the first concrete thing toward my goal, amazing things began to happen to me. And I relearned 3 very important things.

  1. You never know when you meet someone how they may be an important connection or relationship later on down the road. As I have talked with people this week it has been amazing some of the really amazing leads and connections that are happening. Plus the ability to even make change happen for me is because of a connection that I hadn’t talked to in years who contacted me out of the blue.
  2. This is a small town, especially within the sub community that I work. BUT that being said, folks are the most generous people, always willing to chat and answer questions and for that I am so very grateful.
  3. Connections, relationships and people are what it is all truly about. The rest falls into place from there.

This was hammered home to me throughout this week. And then today I read this:

I’ve said it before & I’ll say it again: Act like the person you want to be, not the person you think you are. Action –> Reaction –> Proof

Whitney said it so well, and she is right. So as I realize that people around me are awesome, I’m doing my best to return that awesomeness as much as possible.
