You’ve got it all, but it’s too easy—there’s no edge, nothing at stake, nothing to charge you with fire and romance.
Your paycheck is fat, life is cush, but you want to be lifted, struck, and rung like a bell. Here’s the deal: life is short and if you’re not reveling in it, you’re pissing it away. Here’s the rest of the deal: It’s totally your choice whether your life is a drag or lights you up. If you live in grayness; if tomorrow is looking pretty much like yesterday—stop it. Plant your flag and declare to the world that from this day forward, your life is going to be lived—not survived. Your options are unlimited: There are mountains to climb, seas to cross, kids to comfort, elders to tuck in, stories to tell, books to write, businesses to start, statues to sculpt, great thoughts to think, trees to hug, flowers to bloom, hearts to touch. What stops you? You know the answer intimately: Fear, resignation, petulance, wanting someone to do it for you, your golden handcuffs. Whatever your reasons, they serve one purpose: to keep you where you are, on the sidelines out of the action. If that’s where you want to be, on the sidelines out of life’s big game, you’ve plenty of company. It’s where most people are. My guess, however, is that you want to be part of the action, or better yet, driving the action. I work with high-powered people who want exciting, hand-crafted, and deeply-lived lives. People who want to burn brightly in the brief gift of time we’ve been given. Work with me to find your purpose, your mission, your path. We will break up that part of you that keeps you safe, comfortable, secure—and on the sidelines, living small and bored silly.
