Hope for the Future
“If you want to build a ship, don’t herd people together to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.” — Antoine de Saint-Exupery
There are lots of things to worry about. If you’re paying any attention at all to the news, you can see these things everywhere, on all levels, from inflation, oil prices, antibiotic resistant bacteria, the housing market is crumbling, earthquakes and tsunamis, the crazy out of control deficit and the weak dollar, the polar bears — um. . . I could go on, but A) we all know what’s going on and B) I am making the conscious decision to nurture the beautiful things in life and impact the present with positivity.
It’s a challenge. From every angle, we’re pushed to interact on a very fearful, scarcity driven level. It is my desire in life to act as a catalyst for courage and abundance, self persuasion to the point of shifting reality, switching frames for everyone that I come in contact with.
What does this mean? Well, it means I am opening myself up to new ventures. While at one point I was the ‘go to’ man for all your persuasion needs, I am expanding my horizons in order to become your ‘go to’ man for hope and abundance in a world that on the very surface seems sorrowfully short on both.
It’s about filling the void — not with things (though I happen to love things — and if you know me at all, you’ll know that I am a lover of books and technology) but with inner resources and proper mindsets.
The law of resonance works like this: say you’re an unbelievably happy, upbeat, positive person, and you are working with a very depressive, negative person. . . well, it’s like the rock and the hard place. Either their energy will come up to meet you or your energy will begin to be depleted. Most likely, the two levels meet somewhere in the middle. That’s how it works on an unconscious level, at least.
My goal is to bring this law of resonance to a very conscious level so that the events and people around you, while they may seem hopeless, are not. My suggestion is that the vibration of everything in your world can be raised up to meet you. Again, this doesn’t happen passively, but happens instead through deliberate, mindful optimism.
This isn’t to say there won’t be moments where you need a little support in life, some fortification, someone to build you up when you have challenges. And I am geared to be that for you. I’m relentless about enriching our lives through pure, unadulterated hope. My goal is to teach you to long for the endless immensity of the sea.
Until Next Time,
