I was never discovered as a supermodel on a city subway…

I just posted the curriculum for the abundance group meetings on my web site. It’s a little surreal to me still that this is really what I’m doing and what I’m excited about doing. I know that I have always wanted to be in some way a teacher, a catalyst for people to change the way they think, but for some reason I thought it would all just fall in my lap, like how supermodels are discovered in city subways. I thought maybe, I’d be doing something unrelated and perhaps, by luck, I would be asked to speak about such and such. But here I am, getting exactly what I want, because I chose to do it myself. And I think, this really is not such a big deal, this is not the “Oprah ah ha” moment that I’m making it into, all I did was decide I wanted to do something and pursued it. On the other hand, this is huge, I got off the subway and decided to drive my own car. When did I make the shift from the victim of circumstance to the creator of it? I mean, I could pay lipservice to creating my reality before but I was just sitting in the passenger seat of my car expecting it to move on it’s own.

    Strange, isn’t it, that some of the very best gifts in our lives were the results of very deliberate choices? When you think of how, as a culture, we live off of dreams–visions of things we want to happen, visions often devoid of the path that led to those things. Dreaming isn’t deliberate. Doing is deliberate. Well done!
