So it is with great humility that I take on being “the answer to people's prayers, and all I have to do is be.” This is what I take from a call I was asked to listen to as part of a program I am coaching.
On the one hand, It's kind of a radical departure from where I usually am, which is stuck in my head about myself, and disappointed in and disgusted with the person I find there.
On the other hand, it's not far from who I usually be, a commitment to contributing to people's lives and making the world a better place.
I woke up saying this really is the best time of day. I wrote what I just wrote and my whole body wants to go back to sleep. I apparently still bring a bit of resistance to just being.
And I'm already dreading the ten ideas list at the bottom of this post. I've actually coded up the framework for the posts for the month of March, which at present is about twelve paragraphs and as many list items. I've also added my name to the title.
The thing is that inside of contributing to people's lives, I still see my best and highest use as conducting my listening tour and discovering in what way people want their lives contributed to.
I started a politcal rant here, but didn't like where it was going; so I cut it out for further development, or not, later.
And now I've run out of time, I go to my list. Ten things to do instead of gambling:
- Make a plan.
- Find places in my life where I am out of integrity, and restore integrity.
- Design a program to help people answer their own prayers.
- Write another book.
- Help people have great relationships.
- Help people talk to their customers.
- Help people design their own futures, and believe in them.
- Invest wisely.
- Talk to people.
- Activate my campaign plan.
- Write blog posts.
