From Frustration to Knowing Nothing
What can I tell you about me? I could tell you of my qualifications, my achievements, who I think I am and who I would like you to think I am. But it would serve no purpose in relation to this site.
I started this site out of frustration – frustration that other people didn’t know what I knew then. Knowledge which I believe can change lives.
I remember looking around me and seeing people with less ability than me, less knowledge than me, getting ahead whilst I was stuck in the same position and job. Throughout my life it was the same – a repetitive pattern.
What I was seeing was nothing unusual. There were others in the same position as me.
There was a time when I thought to myself, “What am I missing? Is there some kind of secret, that if I knew it, my life would be different? Am I doing something wrong? Is there something that I should be doing?” Endless questions.
The answer came when I was ready to receive it.
“When the student is ready the teacher will appear.”
The answer came in the form of an introduction to Zig Ziglar and Les Brown. I was willing to listen to someone younger than me, because, I had dropped my ego or at least part of it. I stopped fighting and starting allowing, a little bit.
So I listened to talks, online, from a number of speakers and before I had realised, months had past and my mindset started to change. That is when I started to see things differently. That’s when I begun to realise what I had been missing all the time.
I read books which challenged my beliefs and perception. Questions came up and answers came which gave rise to more questions.
I started to take on new beliefs. I went from thinking, “I know I can make it, but, I don’t know how”, to, “I’m there”. From a lack of faith, or at least very little, in my self and the way that the universal laws work, to faith that I can do anything, anything can happen and miracles exist.
That doesn’t mean that I have reached the level I want to be at. Deep embedded doubts still linger, but, with time and effort they will disappear.
I have learned to live from my imagination, because, that is where my future is. Lean towards faith, because, to do so enables me to move forward. This is a continuous process, a lifetime of learning.
As Socrates said, “One thing I do know; I know nothing”.
I have only touched the ethereal mist of knowledge, above the tip of the iceberg. I have much to learn and what I do, I will share with you, reading this.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Faith is the ability to see the invisible and believe in the incredible, and that is what enables believers to receive what the masses think is impossible.
