These are the ways I can celebrate, when the world feels like it is rearranging itself for me. Where I embrace the parts that are out of control and say it is working for me, not to me.

This was something my friend Shawn and I started to say to each other during our calls. We met in a mastermind group, and we both started new businesses around the same time.
There was a clarity in what we were doing at that moment. There was a sense of all of our experiences and ideas converging at that moment to produce something new, compelling, and inevitable.
It also means we had to be patient. What we were hoping to do, wasn’t going to happen tomorrow, or really anytime soon. Our vision was bigger than what we could do in a year.
But it’s only going to be a matter of time. Whatever it is we are trying to do, it starts with showing up everyday, while keeping our eyes far ahead to our north star.
It’s a tension we have to be able to hold until we get to where we want to be. It’s not convincing ourselves we’re right, it’s about putting a stake in the ground and believing what we are doing is what we’re meant to do.
