Oh my goodness, holy sh*# you guys. I just had an “ah-ha” moment. Forgive the language but I’m so freaking excited right now!! I’m finally having the epiphany and it’s week 21! Woohoo!! Please please please, indulge me and let me explain.
So I am in the medical field, heart surgery to be precise, and I have been toying with the idea of Network Marketing on the side as a means to make a killer income (as great or better than currently) without having to be tied down to the hospital on call 24 days per month. I get out of surgery today early and head to the library to watch the three Go90Grow videos. I’m taking notes, I’m getting really into the videos, I’m realizing that I use (as a matter of fact, have perfected) Pareto’s Principle in my current career. Score! Then I realized that I used the “Framed Firelighter’s” with two of the nurses that I worked with today without having known it or even heard of it until just now. Score again!
Then I get to the third video about The Hero’s Journey. The same Hero’s Journey that Mark and Davene have been talking about for months, the same Hero’s Journey that I just watched the Joseph Campbell video on a few days ago. Mark says, “Something happens and there’s a call to action. You step out of the known and into the unknown.” Again, he’s said this how many times the last few months?!?! And it clicked!
Sidenote, this is going to get very personal very quickly. If you follow my blogs, you may have noticed that I’ve been struggling very much the past two months. A series of really unfortunate circumstances and events have blindsided me in the one area of my life that I thought to be impenetrable. To sum up, without too much detail, my family has been broken apart by circumstances that we are dealing with concerning our children. Starting next week, half of my family will be living with me at our home and the other half will be living in a nearby apartment with my husband (we are a blended family so my stepchildren and husband will be temporarily moving out).
At first, I resisted absolutely everything. Then I became compassionate and decided to wrap everyone in an envelope of love. I’m sincerely supportive of this decision now and I’m using what we’ve learned in the Master Keys daily (sometimes it seems like I’m using and redirecting my thoughts by the minute honestly). Next week is going to be rough watching three of my boys move out while three of us stay back but I feel whole which leads me to this epiphany…”something happens…call to action…step out of the known into the unknown.” Do you see it? WOW! Guys, I’m officially in the Hero’s Journey!!!
