I went to Perth for a conference a few months ago -Latin America Downunder 2017, where some 120ish people discussed current trends and news regarding most of the jurisdictions there, you can read more about it here– and on my way back had some time to kill at the airport. I found myself looking for an inspiring book; I buy a lot of great books at airports! Saw this one from an author I had never heard of, in particular, I noticed it, but I kept going. I looked over every shelf of books and picked up a few, read the back cover, and put them back. As I pondered each one, nothing seemed to be what I was looking for; I was about to give up, and my eyes stopped for a minute on a display of the same book I saw in the beginning. This time it was sparkling and clearly in focus. Yes, this is the book I want to get now.
The lesson here is that often you find answers easily but then doubt yourself, and decide “I must keep looking for something even better” just to spend time browsing and browsing life, not finding that “something better”, finally coming back to where you started, when you finally allow yourself to have that eureka moment. And go – YES! This is it! Life is funny that way.
Let’s trust our intuition more. If we really listen, it will take us where we need to go.
Anyway, aside from the lesson I took from this, the book in question is Life & love – creating the dream, by Lisa Messenger. Outstanding. And if you are a female entrepreneur like me, even more so.
And that is it from me, today. If you enjoyed this piece, consider following me here or, even better, on Twitter, where I’m most active. Until next time!
