For the last year I have been working on a very large project with the objective of creating a global movement and global tribe around business as unusual for all the right reasons. This blog is a part of that.
In May this year I had a meeting with Sir Richard about the project. Amazing opportunity. Inspirational man. A true embodiment of someone who is screwing business as usual.
What happened after this meeting on one level felt like nothing. Crescendo of meeting RB and then crash of what now?
But this project was bigger than me, bigger even than Richard Branson (if that is possible). We need to screw business as usual for all the right reasons. Business as we know it simply will not get humanity to a healthy viable future for all.
I also knew, when I sat in the stillness of my own truth, that to not give everything to this project would mean I would live my life in regret. Not just regret, but that bitter feeling of having sensed the greater purpose of my life and decided that I didn’t have the ………(insert word here..courage, fortitude, skill, connections, money, smarts….) to do what needed to be done.
This was that moment…this was the exact moment that asked of me to step up, step across a threshold.
My intuition said just go for it. Create the web site, start the video interviews, the blog, get investors…don’t wait for permission. I also asked myself…what would Richard Branson do if he were me?
Well of course, he would just go for it.
Yesterday I had confirmation that just going for it was the path. And to ramp it up even further. Ask for more specifically, be bolder, more daring. I had been tentative in my steps, a little uncertain, timid. I wanted that outside confirmation to affirm my inner conviction and intuition.
Moral of the story…trust yourself. Trust yourself and then trust yourself even more. Don’t wait for permission from some external source. If what you are doing is genuine, integrous, heartfelt, soulful, well considered, aligned and adds value exponentially, without doing harm, then go for it.
Where are you waiting for permission? Is that really what is stopping you?
