I met a really incredible man this month.
In his 60’s, wildly successful in business, happily married for decades, father of 4 successful children. He just looks like he won the life lottery.
My colleague asked him what makes his life so happy.
He said “Options.”
“When I realized I had options I kept going in life making the best choices I could but always looking for the options I had. They kept getting better and better the more aware I was of what I could do with what I had around me.”
And then it hit me.
I had been feeling so stuck.
And as if the universe heard me loud and clear…I was at a crossroads with work and facing decisions that were challenging. Suddenly it was clear.
And then I saw the options.
They were always there; I just couldn’t see them clearly. I had been so wrapped up in daily life and functions that I wasn’t seeing things as they were. Now that I’m more freely looking around the list of options is growing by the day.
And that list includes things I have always dreamed of doing!
So thanks, Dave.
Thanks for the clarity.
Thanks for being so damn happy.
And thanks for reminding me it was always about my options!
