the ocean and the singing
i have been following a course on ‘Life’s Golden Ticket” | a story about second chances
Brendon Burchard – #1 New York Times Bestselling Author wrote this book and gives an astounding reality about life. he talks about the 4 gates, the first being awareness! in order to make changes in your life and live fully, you must be aware or all aspects of our lives. work, relationships and our habits.
some of the questions he asks in the course are the following:
if i were going to improve my thoughts on an ongoing basis, i would have to start…
what matters to me right now…
what habits would improve my life right now…
i just finished the second gate, acceptance! since i had mastered the art of loving unconditionally, i knew this gate would be the hardest only because some of the questions here are as follows:
if i’m honest i could say that i’m not fully expressing my true thoughts, feelings and ambitions in the following situations or relationships…
AND BAM! as i sat here listening to some old favourite songs of mine, it occurred, the reality of my awareness and life’s ambition. it is funny how a word can suddenly make you realize what your real dream is all about. a friend once told me years ago i should share and show the world what i can do and it seemed so impossible at the time. for years i knew i had this talent but never really fully embraced it. i guess reality if i knew in order to make it big would take much needed money and time that i didn’t have, so i settled for the normal life of working hard and saving for a rainy day as they say.
so here it is, i am about to share my life’s true dream and reality.
i have a voice, some say the voice of an angel i’ve heard said. i can sing pretty much any song that comes to mind, i can adapt my voice to any music and have always been a natural. admitting that seems a bit conceited but i have never really admitted that to myself. well today i am.
the dream is this, to sing in front of audiences, for them to enjoy or even bring back memories of times when life was simple, free and happy. the rush i get when i turn up the music and sing along is absolutely thrilling to say the least and if for some reason i can’t hit a note, i keep at it until i can. i believe i could sing not for the money but to raise awareness in people. that no matter what dream you have you can achieve it!
i have noticed too not only am i at peace when i sing but it is as if i don’t care who’s listening on the street. the echo through the window must surely hit a few blocks and i really don’t care. i am only in my zone in two places: the ocean and the singing.
so i ask you, have you ever really thought about the real ambition you have always wanted and are you fulfilling it? if not what are we waiting for?
