Your Hatred is Wisdom

In: Confidence, Productivity, Success,

What is it?

The thing you sighed with relief about this morning? The thing you didn’t have to do on a Saturday? The thing you exhaled about? (And maybe even shimmied around the room naked over. With this You Tube video playing. And at least two neighbors cursing you to hell.)

That’s the thing. 

Pay very close attention to this thing.

Whatever you found yourself delighted to be able to skip today? Is likely the same thing you find yourself not delighted to have to do most days.

Your hatred is wisdom.

Don’t feel bad about it; feel smarter for it.

And then, choose.

There is a profound difference of power between the person who whines, “I have to do X, Y or Z” and the person who states, “I choose not to X, Y or Z.”

One of them is a victim; the other is a victor. It’s a beautiful fucking thing to own your own opinions about the way you choose to act.

You’re entirely in control of the way you run your business, set your policies, spend your time, and choose to delegate the minutes of your day. And you don’t owe anyone a single vomit-dump of awkward apologies for it.

Your hatred is wisdom.

And if you haven’t been paying attention?

It’s knocking you upside the head, trying to tell you something. 

Enter your email address and I'll rummage around in my bag of tricks for JUST the thing.

The Competition Doesn’t Have Sh*t On You

There’s never been a person who went to school for accounting and said: BUT WAIT, I CAN’T BECOME AN ACCOUNTANT BECAUSE OTHER PEOPLE ARE ALREADY DOINGGGGG THATTTTTTTTTTT. There are plenty of people out there doing exactly what you want to do—times eleventy thousand. “But there are already so many writers / designers / candlestick makers” […]
