The Journey Day 66 02.15.20

Day 66. Day 63 of #75HARD. Can’t repeat this one enough: IT’S DAY ONE ALL OVER AGAIN!

GRATITUDE.
“Gratitude for the present moment and the fullness of life now is the true prosperity.”
– Eckhart Tolle

NUGGETS. 
In daily terms, we call this checking in with each other, though most of us reduce this to a grocery list: How are you today? Do you need any milk? Eggs? Juice? Toilet paper? Though we can help each other survive with such outer kindnesses, we help each other thrive when the checking in with each other comes from a list of inner kindnesses: How are you today? Do you need any affirmation? Clarity? Support? Understanding?

Wanting to reform the world without discovering one’s true self is like trying to cover the world with leather to avoid the pain of walking on stones and thorns. It is much simpler to wear shoes. 
— The Hindu sage Ramana Maharshi

As light when confined turns to heat, the stuff of our lives when confined ignites brush fires out of our isolation.

Honesty is the net by which we fish the deep.

Listening to and reporting on the talk inside of my head:
Build the enterprise. Build the tribe. Build the enterprise. Build the tribe. Build the enterprise. Build the tribe. It’s ringing in my ears today. It’s tingling my brain. It’s putting fire in my feet and in my gut. It’s time. Time to get serious. Time to finally build my thing instead of someone else’s thing. The practice has been put in–the years and years of brick laying and mortar making. I know what this kingdom consists of, how it breathes, how it breeds, how it spreads. Time to get busy.

SELF-SUGGESTION: THIS IS WHERE I’M GOING. WHERE IS THE PROOF OF PROGRESS TOWARD THAT GOAL TODAY? This is where the rubber hits the road, team. This is the good stuff. These are the end goals. This is what it’s all about.

  2. I am a world-class athlete. 
  3. I drive a world-class $100M publishing business.
  4. I help drive the company I work for to $100M. 
  5. emptynestman.com is the marketing machine that drives the $100M publishing company. 
  6. I am the best man, father, and grandfather I can be.
  7. I am one bad-ass motherfucker.
