Or you do know what it looks like but it feels like 100,000,000 miles away??
When I was younger I can remember my brother’s comment. We were talking about how many video games are so appealing to guys because they are all about fighting and completing these solo missions.
He made a big joke of it. He said something like “if women created a game it would be called ‘Cooperation City’. And nobody gets to the next level until we all get to the next level.”
Apparently my brother actually does have a bit of insight into the differences between men and women.
Which brings up a really good point. I know in my work and even in my friendships, time and time again, it is only through helping others get to their next level that I have been able to get to my next level. I simply can’t get further on my own. I need you. And I am okay with that.
The part that doesn’t always sit as well with me is the fact that I may have had or currently have relationships in my life that prevent me from going to the next level.
I often think about how I simply wouldn’t be able to live the life I do now, to be the person I am now, if I was still with my ex, Sexy Surfer guy. Bless him for his love, everything he taught me, and everything that was possible for me through our relationship. Bless him for setting me free to move to my next level. **tears come to my eyes…**
But let’s face it, tears or no tears, if I am not getting there until we all get there then if someone in my life doesn’t have the same commitment to personal growth that I have…well…they are holding me back…
And I am getting to a point that I may have compassion for the person and the situation but not so much with the patience…
Is there anyone in your life that you need to cut loose or severely limit your contact with so you can get to the next level? How can we navigate this process with grace, honouring the people in our lives who helped us get to where we are and knowing that it is time for that to change?
In the meantime…if you are thinking you would like to get to “the next level” with your money or your work stay tuned for announcements about some upcoming offerings from me. By far and away the most exciting, it’s all about you, next level stuff I have offered yet!
It’s all about you! It’s all about us!
Let’s all go to the next level!!!
