Within a year ago, I was talking to a friend named Wain, and we had been talking about what we had been working on at that point in our life. I believe he had been working on a couple of videos and I could have been putting a book together.
Thus, when I stated that I’d shortly be publishing the book, he was not pleased to just give me positive feedback and then to proceed; he wanted to find out what was going on for me.
A Big Difference
I was amazed by this as I was used to people giving me positive feedback once I talked about something like this. However, Wain, on the other hand, isn’t someone who has the inclination to say things that a good deal of other folks say.
I thought about what he said and it became apparent that I did not have an empowering perspective of myself.
An Important Question
To put it differently, I had been so focused on what I wanted to achieve it caused me to be unaware of why I wanted to attain it.
Within this context, the quality of the work that I made was just a part of it; another part was seeing myself as somebody who made quality work.
A Big Effect
How I saw myself could have an effect on how I introduced my job, what I did with it and even the energy which was behind it. Consequently, if this portion of the equation wasn’t right, I’d only have the ability to get up to now.
Part of me could be on board, but another part of me would not be going in exactly the exact same direction. What I came to see was that each part of me was not going in the same direction; I was sabotaging myself.
Shinning the Light
After being asked this question by Wain, I might have ended up becoming defensive. The trouble is that if this had happened, it would have stopped me from having the ability to reflect on what he asked me.
As a consequence of this, my thoughts would have been shut and it would not have been possible for me to grow. I knew he was coming from the right place and I was open minded, so fortunately this did not happen.
This is just one of the strongest questions which Wain has asked me over the years; his head is like a guided missile. The difference is that he’s not interested in Animal Pros or destroying buildings; he’s interested in destroying false beliefs and outlooks.
