Recently, I embarked upon a new adventure. I wrote an article for a magazine, whether or not the article will be used is yet to be seen. In the process of writing this article, it forced me to write down the experiences of my lifetime that lead me to where I am today. Have you ever taken the time to do that? It is a remarkable discovery of who you are, and what you have overcome in your life. Sometimes we are a little too hard on ourselves, and we can become paralyzed by fear. Fear of failure or worst of all fear of success!
I want to challenge you, to take a day, just one day, and write down all the experiences from as far back as you can remember up until today. Yes, turn the television, radio or whatever distractions you may have and jot down every road of your journey. What you may find can be humbling and eye-opening. You may find that you had hidden strength that you didn't think that you had, or you came through a tough patch with only minor nicks and bruises! What I discovered in my journey was, the trials and tribulations that I have gone through and come out on the other side of were really not about me! Most of them were about a road map laid out to help the person behind me find their way through!
If you have never walked through the fire yourself, how can you help navigate some one else through it? What an amazing journey we are on in this thing called life!
What's your story? Don't let your journey through life be the best kept secret!
