The Honesty Blog – Whatever Works…

April 10, 2013

… but what do we do when NOTHING works??


Our external world is a reflection of our inner knowing. When everything we are doing – all actions – result in zero results there are two things going on:

  • We are expecting results
  • We are not ready

Expectation leads to disappointment. Forcing our businesses (whatever they may be) into fruition before we ourselves are ready will only result in meltdown. Go slowly. I have learned that dropping the expectation (I have mentioned this in very early blog posts) is the KEY to being present.

As I emerged from the shadows of difficulty very recently, I asked myself one question in my calmer moments:

What activity makes me happy?

The response came quick and clear:


My left-brain immediately jumped in with: ‘But that isn’t making any money’ but I ignored it – I am LUCKY having experienced EVERYTHING that I have the last few years (failed businesses, loss of direction, near-poverty, sickness, burn-out) because I KNOW that it simply wasn’t working. I tried everything – and I mean – everything –

So I can step into this conclusion with confidence:

When nothing works – do nothing.

I believe in organic – growth that happens naturally. The writing process is nothing but organic, it emerges from the undergrowth like a long lost Summer. Why would I want to do it any other way? Why did I do it any other way?

God love me. And I’m sure She does.

So I know it can be hard, but I share this with you now in the hope that my blueprint – may just resonate with your blueprint:

Whatever works – even when it’s nothing.
