Experimental rock god, Frank Zappa once said, “If you end up with a boring miserable life because you listened to your mom, your dad, your teacher, your priest, or some guy on television telling you how to do your sh!t, then you deserve it.”
And true…to a point.
What if someone WOULD go against the grain if only they KNEW they could?
Maybe they just don’t realise they CAN – yet!
Have they ever been taught to question these things?
To embrace independent thought?
I know myself, if someone hadn’t opened the door for me, I would still be stuck in the same rut I was 5 years ago…
Thing was, my then partner, now fiancé, future husband got me to read The Four Hour Workweek by Tim Ferris.
Tim teaches people how to free up their time so that they can undertake learnings, travel and projects they are REALLY passionate about.
His message is that you really CAN have it all. All he does is open the door – the rest is up to you and your imagination.
And that’s one of the things I love most about what I do – now, I open the door for people, too!
I point them in the right direction on the right path.
To happiness, joy and fulfillment.
All because someone opened the door for me.
And for that I am forever grateful.
So here’s to opening as many doors for as many people as possible.
Once the door is open, it’s up to them whether they go through it or not.
And then, as Frank said – if they end up with a boring and miserable life…
Then they deserve it!
