Your efforts to create a viable business, get a promotion, improve a relationship, or anything else you want to achieve begins with you. That statement seems extremely obvious but very few people truly understand what it really means.
Consider this; there is no external solution to an internal problem.
A great many people reach outside of themselves to find a contentment source. “If only my circumstance would change . . .” “When I reach vice-president of global advancement . . .” “Just you wait and see the new me after I get 2000 people in my downline organization.” “My next relationship is going to be . . .” “If only my kids weren’t so . . .”
Attempting to validate yourself, your internal value, with any external resource leaves you at the mercy of events that rightfully have their own agendas. Your kids are not supposed to be the solution for your feelings of loneliness or rejection from your parents; you are supposed to be their teacher - their resource for learning to care for themselves and others. Let them grow.
If you do not get the promotion, the job, the contract, the recruit, the sale, the relationship, or the award, it is because everything and everyone else has a legitimate agenda. Did you catch that? They have a legitimate agenda that may seem opposed to your short-term need for an external solution to an internal problem. However, their agenda, hear me out, is in complete agreement with your agenda when it is from a place of internal resource.
To illustrate: suppose a grass fire spread to your house and it was burned to the ground (if you live in a place this is highly unlikely, imagine). In this scenario, no life was lost; just property. This is an undesirable situation, to say the least. For those that have experienced this, you bring encouragement to those that may fear it. You have endured. The restoration of your “stuff” is not the point. The continuation of your life is not even the point. The fact that you continue to engage other life from within your new growth is the point. This is going to sound a little far out and may require some contemplation, but a grass fire’s agenda is new growth. The physiological purpose for fire is to accelerate the breakdown of the old so new growth may emerge with nutrients and opportunity from the old.
If your resource for validation is in your house, stuff, job, business, or even your perceived accomplishments, a metaphorical fire is a loss. If your agenda is internal growth and becoming a viable resource for your relationships, family, business, or company, then the “fire” (challenge) is in complete agreement with your agenda toward being a resource.
It all begins with you. Your relationships, business, community, organization, and family are better served by you as a resource that is full and capable. Most people have no clue how to realistically become a resource. They usually think it is about “doing more” and perceive they are already “doing more”. It is not about “doing more” and thereby becoming an empty resource. An empty resource is a pretty good target for a renewing fire.
I am talking about becoming a vibrant source of life from within. If you are currently thinking, “that is not really possible”, I will compassionately tell you that is an absolute lie. Just because masses of people are telling the same story does not make it true - sailors historically told stories of mermaids and sea monsters. Point made. Millions of people have learned to be a viable resource from within. I am one of those people. As a result of my own transformation, I am now teaching people how to be that resource within their business, family, company, and community of which they are capable. I can teach you too.
