I’ve been on the planet for 67 years. When I look at my life today, I have much to be grateful for and a few things to be proud of, but I am not content with who I am. I can do nothing about the past and the failures that lie there but have a deep desire to become more in the years ahead.
I’ve lived with the idea of not being good enough, talented enough, and successful enough. If I wasn’t depressed, I certainly was melancholy. If not angry, frustrated. If not afraid, cautious. My faith became marred by disillusionment. I’ve lived ‘by default’ — either not knowing or believing I had any other option but to endure whatever came my way. The idea of ‘as within, so without’ was lost on me.
Though retired from my career as a photographer, I’m not done. Business interests have put me on a whole new path — learning what I was never taught, discovering that which I’ve never pondered, and exploring ground I’ve never tread. It’s an opportunity for the greatest personal, interpersonal, and financial accomplishments of my life. And not only for me but for the people I have the honor of associating with.
Years ago I found a book titled the Master Key System by Charles Haanel. I resonated with it but didn’t finish. It’s a great blessing to have found the Master Key Experience and be given the opportunity to integrate the truth of that amazing book with structure and mentorship. I know deep down it will be the foundation for my accomplishments going forward — actually, the power to accomplish anything at all. One of the requirements over the next 6 months will be to blog about it.
