This may seem silly, but I thought I could control Nemo with my mind. Yes I seriously did. I wish I was lying to you.
How did I come to this conclusion? Well last June my family was throwing a beach party for my good friend and mentor, Roman Price. All the weather reports said it would thunderstorm. My parents tried to convince me to move the party, but I wouldn’t. I trusted that it would all work out and Roman would have an awesome surprise party. And he did! It was a beautiful night on the beach surrounded by good friends with no thunderstorms, until as soon as I got home. As I entered my house after the party, the lightening started and then I believed I could control the weather with my mind.
Today I realized I cannot no matter how hard I try. My ASSET launch party has been forced to be rescheduled once again, and to say the least I was a bit upset. Okay, I was hysterical crying and having a panic attack… but just a bit upset. I had put in a ton of effort into this event as did many others. Multiple health food experts had prepared food for tomorrow. I spent four hours, yesterday, cooking. I had a bunch of volunteers lined up to work the event. So much effort had been put into this weekend, and it was so hard to let go.
As I panicked, I got wrapped in what I wanted. I wasn’t using any of my ASSET tools-I was choosing to perceive this as an awful situation that was out of my control. So much out of my control, that I begged my business partner, Josh, to make the final decision on whether we would have the party tomorrow. I could not let go of it, and I needed him to do it for me. Then when Josh concluded what would be best, I still couldn’t come to terms with his decision. I chose to see this as an awful place to be put in, and it felt even more awful that I wouldn’t show up to the situation and had to have someone do it for me.
After panicking for a good while and calming myself down, I realized I could not change the weather, but I could change my reaction to the weather. I could choose to see the lesson within this situation, instead of choosing to not grow on my journey. I chose to show up to Nemo. Yes it was uncomfortable, but by showing up to a situation out of my control, I told myself I could handle it. Lesson within this situation: show up to what causes you anxiety because you can handle it!
How am I handling it? Going beyond the constrictions of the current weather conditions and hosting a webinar talk tomorrow at 3:15pm EST for everyone to enjoy for FREE. Come join my talk on ‘How To Be An ASSET To Yourself’ at https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/6267871935547796736
