Why I do what I do!
3 years ago I hit a wall. A point in my life that brought everything to a complete halt.
Depression hit me like a two-by-four to the back of the head and I began questioning everything in my life including my job, my faith, and my existence on this planet.
I could think of no good reason for my being here. I was bringing no value to the world or anyone around me. I was living my life with no sense of purpose or meaning and things sure as hell weren’t the way I imagined they would be.
Up to that point, life was going pretty easy for me. I went to school, got my degree, and a few months later, got the job that was going to set me up for success, as I thought back then.
I had done everything I was supposed to do according to what a “successful” person should do. Only there was one thing that I completely missed. The life I was creating for myself was not one that I wanted.
Somewhere over the years I was stripped of all imagination and joined a long line of people, who just like me, were going through the motions, just doing the things they thought they were supposed to be doing.
All creativity, all passion, all enthusiasm, every crazy dream I had growing up was gone. Now, sitting there, staring at the cubicle wall in front of me I became honest with myself… my life was empty and I was wasting it away.
My search for meaning began.
I started reading.
I read everything I could get my hands on that had anything to do with psychology, success, high performance, the power of the mind, or positive thinking.
I wanted to know what it felt like to really feel alive and what real living actually looked like.
When you don’t learn, grow, seek the things YOU believe and value, you’ll accept what other people tell you to value and believe.
Body, mind, soul, and business, there needs to be progress in ALL aspects of life.
There IS a better way to live!
