give that dog a bone

There are lots of bones out there—the wish bone, the funny bone; but the most important bone is the backbone. This is the bone that gives you the stature to live out your dreams.

Charlie “Tremendous” Jones writes about the Three Decisions in Life in the bestselling motivational classic, Life Is Tremendous. They are: Who are you going to live your life with; what are you going to live your life in; and what are you going to live your life for?”

Determining what you are going to live your life for takes some real soul-searching. You can step in and out of relationships and jobs without even trying to work at them or giving them much thought. Finding what you are going to live your life for, that one true passion that consumes every waking moment and fills your subconscious when you sleep, is truly tremendous.

The closest comparison humans have to a dog’s bone is their dreams and aspirations. No matter how long it’s been buried or left lying around, when you come back to it, it’s all good. You instantly recognize it. It may be a childhood dream or your perfect job. Always have a bone worth burying and worrying about. A bone whose taste and smell you can’t get out of your nose. A bone that you always go back to and value as your most prized possession.

My father would go days without sleeping when he was on the scent of a hot project. Who can sleep when you’ve got your passion coursing through your veins, making your heart beat stronger, keeping your mind firing with flashes of brilliance? That’s when you know you’re motivated, when sleep moves down the list of priorities. The result of finding your bone is ceaseless activity.

And if you’re still unclear about what your individual passion is, the activity of helping others realize theirs will put you on your own path to discovery. As Zig Ziglar put it, “You will get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want.” So while you may not yet know exactly where your magical bone is buried, it doesn’t take much digging to sniff out many tremendous ways to help others.

and now for something completely different……you!!!!

Coming back home to live after 28 years away gave me an interesting perspective. I can remember pulling onto the Carlisle Pike in Carlisle, Pennsylvania on a cold winter night as I drove the final 10 miles of my journey. I panicked. I caught a glimpse of the awkward, insecure teen I was all those years ago and wondered if all the improvements and polish I had put on myself the last three decades would successfully pass through the time warp I was hallucinating to arrive safely in the next station of my life.

Throughout the years, I had numerous opportunities to make broad changes every few years in my life, personally, professionally, and even geographically. This meant I got to pack up my experience bag and start anew at each juncture. People didn’t know what or who I was in my previous “life” so they probably assumed I had always been the person they saw.

Truth be told, I was evolving at each and every turn. When I left corporate America to return home and run the family business, I had a fairly extensive bag of tricks that I was proud of. Yet before I could say, “Mom, I’m home!” the metamorphosis process started yet again.

This time it was highly accelerated. Not only was I meeting a vast number of new people, I was reading personal development material at an unprecedented rate. Most of this was a direct result of my new job as a publisher. I got to spend work time reading, writing, editing and publishing material about what we all strive to become.

 Many people refer to this process as “reinventing” yourself and for many years I thought that is what I was doing.  I was making alterations based on what worked and what didn’t. But in reality, I was getting much closer to the truest version of my own self. And that is the only place where one finds happiness, contentedness, and autonomy.

So don’t beat yourself up over not becoming what you wanted to be. Everything you need to excel in life is still waiting right inside of you. When you get to this point you’ll realize that the string of shattered dreams and painful heartaches scattered along the way were all there to make you the most powerful version of yourself.

you are your own worst enemy

Last week I had breakfast with a friend who shared his life’s journey with me. Like all of us he found himself at yet another crossroad and described his lane changes in a very interesting way.  He said, “You spend all those years helping people to become as successful as they could be, but in the end, I wanted their success more than they did.” The real-world translation of this is: “time to find a new job”.

Ariel Dorfman stated, “The greatest sin of all is satisfaction.” Enabling organizational or individual status quo is unacceptable. If today is as good as you’re ever going to be, why continue consuming the earth’s limited resources? Make room for somebody who wants to breathe deeply and drink unceasingly from the pool of life.

I think one of the most difficult questions in the universe isn’t “what am I going to live my life doing?”, but “how committed am I to continuously excel in my current occupation?” After all, that’s the reality that each of us faces every day the alarm clock sounds. A visionary isn’t somebody that has some kind of clairvoyant ability to see the future; it’s the person who acknowledges the tasks at hand and then does them to the best of their ability.

Any time I state a problem but not a solution, I am broadcasting to the universe that I don’t care enough to be successful. If I truly did, solutions, and not excuses, would be bubbling out of my head and flowing from my lips. As Thomas Jefferson so eloquently said, “Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.”
