The Story of Ron & Marie
It’s an all too familiar story these days… You’re living a life that was seemingly perfect with a six-figure job and a beautiful family. Then 2008 hits, your company downsizes and you’re suddenly laid off. You spend your life savings trying to start a business that fails in the downturn economy. Your marriage comes crashing down under the stress and instead of being partners during the crisis you turn to blaming each other. Is it possible to rebuild your relationship, find happiness and achieve financial success once again?
What is a Breakthrough?
A breakthrough is a moment in time when the impossible becomes possible. When something happens that shapes you, that moves you. Maybe you meet someone that inspires you. Maybe it’s a tool or a strategy that you learn. Maybe you finally get so fed up you won’t settle for the life that you have any more. It’s when something inside of you clicks and everything changes. You take massive action and you transform your life.
I am not a huge fan of shortcuts to explain complicated topics since it often results in individuals or families missing key distinctions, exceptions to the rules, and potential risks. Nevertheless, our brains like to learn by this methodology so as an intro to this topic, I will describe a process that most of us have already used in our lives on this journey. I call this the 5 P’s on the Journey from Success to Significance.
Through our thoughts, feelings, surrounding events, our relationships, present circumstances, or inner spirit, we discover an aspiration of something we need or want to do in the future. This usually becomes the motivating force that moves us forward on our journey.
Through strategic and tactical planning, we begin laying out the vision and mission of the journey. Then we begin a more in-depth discovery process of the various options, tools, and resources required for us to complete our journey.
Every journey begins with a single step forward. Action is required for us to fulfill our journey. By utilizing our unique abilities, our networks, our finances, and leveraging other resources, the time frame of this journey may be shortened or lengthened. Of course, we need to monitor the outcomes being created since our activities or market conditions may be moving us closer or further away from our dreams on a daily basis.
As we focus our energies on success, we typically measure the results by things such as money, net worth, market share, position, return on investment, or effective use of our time (in regard to time, think of Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela, Gandhi). We all want to achieve some form of success since it enables us to experience our dreams and fulfill our Bucket List.
At some point on our journey, it is important to realize that we are human beings and not human doings. Also, money, fame, power, and things are short term elixirs on the journey. If life was really about these things, and we work so hard to achieve them, then we should be able to bring them with us after we die. This is an impossible feat. Therefore, a better approach is to be a good steward of the blessing in our lives. By discovering our true purpose in life, we will find fulfillment and leave a sustainable and positive legacy for ourselves and our family.
On this journey from success to significance, George Kinder suggests we ask three important questions:
a) If money and time were no obstacle, what would you want to do, have, and experience in your life? (Create your Bucket List of what you would like to accomplish here on Earth on a holistic basis)
b) If you went to your Doctor and discovered that you had a rare disease which allowed you only three years to live, however the disease would allow you to remain healthy until the very end, what would you do with your time remaining? How would you spend it with your loved ones and friends? What legacy would you want to leave for your family or business?
c) If your Doctor said you only had 48 hours to live, what regrets would you have about your life?
On a daily basis, I recommend that we all reflect on the following:
i) Be consciously aware of yourself and your surroundings;
ii) Remember what you are grateful for;
iii) Review what happened in your day. Did you do the most important things first;
iv) Ask for forgiveness for things that you did wrong. Make a decision to reconcile with someone you have hurt;
v) Prepare yourself for tomorrow by becoming aware of the next day.
I wish for all our members: happiness, success, significance, prosperity, love, joy, many blessings, and great health on your journey in life.
