Do you ever have this hard to explain feeling deep inside you that you are destined for some greatness?
I’m not necessarily talking about fame and wealth. It could be saving lives and making a profound difference in your community. Typically something you get little public credit. Efforts you make that alter destiny are challenging to measure.
I’m proudly aware that over the years, I’ve saved people from committing suicide. People have said my actions have profoundly changed the outcomes of a project or the direction of someone’s life.
I and others like me do it because we’re at the right place at the right time, and our actions were simply the right thing to do. Our altruistic response to the human condition is a no brainer.
These acts of sacrifice and kindness are the stuff that creates good Karma, which in turn brings good things into one’s life. I want to be on the right side of mother Karma, don’t you?
People have made my life a bit better a straightforward one act at a time, so why would I not ‘pay it forward.’
I’ve often said that kindness takes less energy than being a fucking ass hole! Trust me; I’ve tried both.
For decades I worked for one of Canada’s largest national charities and compensated for my good deeds. Our efforts changed the lives of thousands of young people across the country. Thankfully we had this bug bucked of government funding available to us. You can buy a lot of outreach and development with $15 million a year.
Branching out to be GREAT on your own and putting your start-up expenses on your credit card is a whole other ball game!
I am great in other ways. Through my freedom and grounded sense of connection, significance, belonging, contribution and personal growth — living loving and learning a proud life on my terms.
It all comes down to my definition of success for greatness.
“I know I am successful by how much I enjoy my creativity, how much I am in the presence of people who appreciate me, and I understand them.
I am successful when I share my positive energy with the community — as I define community.”
One could argue that I’m not as great as I could be as an entrepreneur — for failing to monetize my good deeds adequately — so what!
Face it, you need money to pay for stuff, and you need the capability to grow your practice to make a long-term difference on a scalable level.
I am living life un-yielding to any one organization, on my terms, as an autonomous, self-funding practitioner.
If I fail to monetize my ideas, will I be summoned to spend my waking hours in a traditional subservient job? — that’s NOT great!
Hitting 60, I’d had enough. Its time to play a different game! — GREAT for it!
Plus, the world of traditional work has radically changed and not for the better!
I get tremendous satisfaction working with people and are not fussed if they are cash strapped. Newcomers to Canada, LGBTQ young people and those in developing countries typically have little money for high-end coaching services.
The people who need my services the most are often the ones living on the edge.
It’s not as if I don’t know what to do to launch my GREAT idea. I’ve taken scores of ‘how-to’ courses,’ I model the practices of ‘the big players.’ I am keenly aware of the ‘right formula to implement, and I have decades of experience — Not that’s GREAT!
Can you relate to what I’m saying?
Do you face similar challenges as you launch your epic project?
