Have you ever really, really wanted something that you never got?
Ever lost something you valued a lot?
Have you ever looked back at any of those disappointments and realized just how lucky you were that that thing did NOT work out?
I have! His name was Joel- a tall, handsome, blue-eyed doctor.
I was crazy in love with him, so I thought. We were both in our 20’s. The connection was so amazing that we just had to be soul mates, I told myself. But, it didn’t work out.
He lived in Ohio. Me in Oklahoma. He arranged a little weekend meet up in Little Rock, AK. I was so excited to see him! He picked me up at the airport and after a little sightseeing, we headed out to dinner at a beautiful little restaurant on the river. (He had made reservations!)
At age 18 Scott Harrison left home for a world of excitement. He started off in a band but soon discovered he could get paid to drink alcohol for free. The job? Nightclub promoter in NYC. Alcohol companies paid him thousands per month just to have his picture made with their label in his hand.
He made big money, traveled in private jets and dated dream girls. His girlfriend was plastered across billboards. He was livi’n the life, as they say. You’ve gotta hear his story went from spiritual and emotional bankruptcy to helping millions, (yes Millions) of people! (Tissues needed at minute 14:00).
Do you hold yourself back? Ever put something off for far too long, and after you’ve finally done it you think to yourself, “That wasn’t so bad. I should have done it sooner!”?
A couple of weeks ago I wrote about the two voices we hear inside ourselves. The first voice you have is the voice of God. The second one is the voice of logic. Today’s Insight is about the second voice, which can rob you of your Greatness, your Dreams, and even your Purpose!
Did you know Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman, Harrison Ford and even Meryl Streep despise seeing themselves on screen? That’s right! Even acclaimed actors still have a critical voice even after their award-winning talent has been validated by the masses. Mindboggling, isn’t it?
In today’s INSIGHT I share how I caught my critical voice in action and what I did about it.
