A college friend called me tonight to share her happiness. She had attended a workshop I created called “Balancing Boulders: Strategies for Managing the Stressors in Your Life.” At the time of the class, not quite eighteen months ago, her business was challenging. She reminded me tonight as she held two signed real estate offers — one in excess of $1.6 million.
A few months ago she applied advice from the class to manage her boulders, those entities ( people, circumstances, finances, relationships–any thing that blocks energy to move forward, to live her dreams). Operating from her personal power zone, now she can just think about the profile the profile of the clients she wants, they appear. Her reputation at work is getting a makeover. Offers for partnering are frequent. Life is on high.
What is different?
My friend changed her point of view. She decided to remove her boulders and step into her business life with a positive attitude. She expected success. She let her energy flow in the direction of her dreams. She could the ride the waves of the real estate market with an attitude of fun and adventure.
Her happiness was contagious. I had tears of joy in my eyes and in my voice. I kept saying her name and shaking my head from side to side. Her happiness was the medicine I needed. I did not need to tell her of my recent good fortune of standing in the middle of a miracle–being affirmed that living on purpose is a gift from God. I needed to feel the best kind of happiness, the kind when you know that with a little support, someone else had tapped into her invisible power and felt the rush–the audacious rush of empowerment.
Happiness is a healing balm. It just feels so good.
