Lessons I learned from Columbus

The Start of a long Columbus Day Weekend

Columbus

As I write this, it is Friday – the start of a long Columbus Day Weekend. I find that very apropos. Think about it. Captain Columbus headed west thinking he would reach the Indies. When he reaches land, he believes he has reached his intended destination. Wow! Does this sound familiar! There is no question mark at the end of the previous sentence because it is so obviously rhetorical! Let’s put aside my sense of direction which I have already referenced in a previous blog. My geographically- challenged excursions aside, we ALL have had the experience of being lost. If not, you need to get out more!

But I digress….

Rainbow over Water

Let’s look at this. Metaphorically speaking, how many of us have started out in a particular direction, followed the path we have set out for ourselves to the letter – only to find out that we are terribly off course. What I am talking about here is  a something that my paisano Christoforo Colombo and I have in common. We are discovering new lands – places that we could not have visualized because we didn’t know what we didn’t know.

For me, I’m discovering new things about myself. The Master Key course that I am taking with Mark J challenges us to come up with our personal pivotal needs (PPN’s). I assumed (you know what they say about assuming) that my personal pivotal needs were the same as they have been for awhile – liberty and legacy – the PPN’s I arrived at via a previous course –go90grow! . I’ve discovered that I have liberty. I am a network marketer. I work when I want, if I want, with whom I want.

I still have a PPN of legacy, but I’ve  replaced the other one with recognition for creative expression.  Who knew? I have always considered myself creative, but I didn’t see that coming.  This major discovery is a direct result of the Master Key  class.

I am excited to see what else I discover on this journey to uncharted territory!

My aha moment as I write this is how quickly the words poured out. Mark J is correct. . I am amazed at how much I am accomplishing in so little time.  I am eager to master the technology piece. I am writing on Friday, but who knows how soon I can actually publish!!

The Best Way to Predict Your Future is to CREATE It,
