Waking up in the night, sweating, heart racing, I felt a tightness in my chest, uncertainty, feeling like so many things are shattered into pieces and mixed up.

Getting up to get it out of my head and onto paper, I thought about how we might patch things back together and chive on.

– But this pang in my heart/gut told me this wasn’t the way.

Then I thought,

“What if I used this as a golden opportunity for reset?”

Work:

What if I used this as a reset; explained more clearly our goals, penciled out how my team can 2x or 3x their income and at the same time becoming the clear best in the world at what we do. I imagined their pride and mine, looking back to this day, the day we put a stake in the ground unwilling to let slide this one time in life to shine, to build something that matters and unwilling to miss out on the pride of having done it.

Me personally:

I looked into the future as far as I could… I Imagined the end of my life handing in my life resume and wondered if I could meet my maker’s eye with the confidence knowing that I used the talents I was given to become who I was meant to be.

– I doubted it.

It occurred to me that my truest goal would be handing in that life resume with pride – those items on my resume that gave me the greatest pride, those should be my goals.

-In a flash my new path was in clear focus,  in a simple and powerful way that I’d never felt before.

Family:

Sometimes it’s been hard for me to say what I really mean to people I love. 

I thought about how to use this TRUEFREEDOM platform to share my most inner thoughts and experiences with my wife and kids.

– I could do that!

Suddenly I was excited!

Noticing the sun rising, I smiled.

What started as a nightmare, had woken me the opportunity to change everything.

-Starting Immediately.

That song Young Turks, by Rod Stewart popped into my mind, “…we get one shot at like let’s take it while we’re still not afraid.”

Before stepping away, I scheduled a meeting with my team, sent messages to my family and wrote this post.

What about you?

How can you take this golden opportunity to hit reset and make a change that’s been bugging you, or bugging you to become who you’ve always wanted to be?

What’s one thing you can do right now?

TRUEFREEDOM: Always within arm’s reach.
