Do you want to escape 9 to 5, but you don’t know how to make it happen?
In early 2013 I decided that I’m not going to waste my life as a walking dead banker. I’d had enough.
I knew from day one that I don’t fit the banking environment. But it took me some time until I was ready to cut the crap. I needed to figure out first how to get a business running while working in my 9 to 5 job.
Here’s what I’ve learnt!
In 13th century Scotland there was a freedom fighter named William Wallace.
In a time when most people in Scotland were willing to settle, Wallace wanted more for himself and for his people. Getting there was something that probably seemed impossible, to win freedom from a ruthless king probably seemed insurmountable.
Read in this inspiring post from Kimanzi Constable, how he turned his life around and stopped to settle for something that was below his real potential.
Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about how I can find my voice. Or better, how I can refine and clarify my voice. Because obviously I already have a voice. If you think about it, especially if you are a blogger or express yourself otherwise publicly, you also already have a voice.
Your voice is what you have to say to the world. So make it worth hearing!
It is something that what’s to get out of you. You have the feeling that you wouldn’t have really lived without letting the world know.
Your voice is in fact, your contribution to mankind.
The question is: What is your voice singing? And is it heard?
I always found that being inspired is the best state to be in. Being inspired leads to inspired action and has some kind of magic to it. It seems to go directly to the point. It always seems to be right.
You are able to see things much more clearly. You are getting the right ideas, the right input. And you do good.
The state of being inspired means to be in connection with your spirit, your higher self. It “whispers” you your way.
But how can you not feel the connection to your spirit?
Finally I’m writing about The Law of Attraction. In fact, I’ve written about it in many posts here, but I’ve never named it as such. But the key understandings that you are responsible for your state of mind and for what you create in your life are also at the core of the Law of Attraction.
The Law of Attraction states: You attract in your life what you think about most of the time. What you focus your attention on grows, and your energy and actions flow towards it. Or in other words: Like attracts Like.
For me the Law of Attraction was intuitively clear pretty early in my life, without labeling it as the Law of Attraction (or even “The Secret”). Some time in my teens I decided to “focus on what I want”. That was essential for me.
Do you know your personal strengths? A very easy question, but if I would be the interviewer in an job-interview, what would you answer? Can you name your biggest personal strengths instantly?
Knowing your personal strengths and weaknesses can help you a lot in choosing the right career or making good decisions. Because if you are able to focus what you do around your personal strengths you have the chance to create something remarkable while making it look like it’s almost effortless for you.
As a kid my dad encouraged me to strive for the best. In his mind I was gifted and would surly go on to do great things. He pushed me to believe that anything was within my reach. I began to think of success as a choice and not something that was destined upon you.
If I wanted to be a success in life, if I wanted that million dollar mansion on the beach, I could have it. All I would have to do is to believe it is possible, and with enough ambition and hard work I would do it. It was a great way of thinking and it encouraged me to dream big. The only problem is, I took it too far…
