Yes. Design a good road map; follow it, and you will arrive where you intended to.

| Past Present & Future |
As a human being I am so familiar with the story I tell myself only vs. the story I tell others! Neither are inspiring nor positive. The one I tell myself is VERY critical. It is easy to beat myself up for what occurs to me as insufficient. It is very easy to generate the present moment & future as a continuation of the Past insufficiencies! But that involves changing what already exists. Consider the metaphor of an artist creating on a blank canvas. Creating from Nothing! Creation begins with the courage to risk! for me considering the metaphor of life being a game-- I am challenging myself to get complete quickly with the past hand, let it go! and move on to the next! Its not what your dealt its how I play them.

| What to say when you talk to yourself |
Michael's blog post reminds me of a book I read years ago. It was titled "What to Say When You Talk To Yourself". Great book. It explored this topic in depth and was a rather eye-opening read. Michael's right of course, there's what we tell ourselves and what we let other's tell us. It all gets in there and affects our behavior and self image.

"It's not difficult to do the right the thing once you know what it is. What's difficult is knowing what it is." That's my story in a nutshell.

| I Can't Drive 55 |
I saved a snail, now karma came back and is saving my butt! It was on the railing of a plastic bin filled with plant trimmings and muck by the dumpster dropped off by a neighbor in my apartment building. I tried to lift it off and all this watery slime seeped out. Then I found out you slide it off. As I carried this lost soul to the gardens across the street, it extended it's surprisingly long body (about 5 inches was peeping outside it's shell), it turned it's head and looked straight at me. I put it on a long leaf of a plant and it slowly glided itself down the leaf like a conveyor belt. As far as the degree of success goes, that ice hotel is too friggin' cold! However, I plan to tour & have a drink before I melt!

| Change |
Well put, but there is actually a business process that I have used to help guide people in their careers (strategic planning), and the resulting actions that you talk about (tactics). They you monitor the 10-20 year horizon with benchmarks. I am getting more requests for entertainment industry companies to assist them. Everyone has it within themselves to stratigize, it is just not very people know the steps to do it, and then implement it.

| Truth |
I have to look at the truth after reading your blog..I thin I like the "dream success", the fantasy of succeeding maybe better than the real thing. Always breaking the barrier of fear. Never the less I will chose break fears and resistance and change my story. Always good to read your blog Michael.

| A song that never ends............. |
Ya know Michael...recovering from the flu, and looking ahead, I believe that all things work together for good. Sometimes you can feel the mountain top experience tingling in your insides and it makes you so happy..!! But when you're pulling the wagon a long distance...it's kindof ...s..l..o..w.., I still have faith and faith is like dynamite. We gave money, and song to big people and now we are preparing to ......!? Perhaps the story is about to...change........:-) Have a GREAT day! Rachel

This somehow seems to make a lot of sense.

| Comfort zone |
I’m ruminating over this, over and over. First I asked myself, “what is MY secret story that I tell myself?” It is something like, “I don’t need to win a Grammy or be on the cover of some magazine. All I need is to make $$$ so I can support my family, take vacations, buy this or that.” And I have produced those results. I am in a kind of self-limiting comfort zone. Now I’m asking myself, should I change my story? What are the risks of sticking with my same story or expanding it? Am I satisfied creatively? Let me chew on that for awhile.

| It's a mystery |
This blog is such a mind tickler. I look at the pace of my career...am I satisfied with it? Too slow? Too fast? Too mediocre? Should I be further along by now? I must examine my own story and meditate on this. I have to focus on my own satisfaction because all too often I hear that voice asking, “what will people think?” I have to steer clear of that voice, that concern. I don’t know the answer yet.
