Watching the recording of Bob Proctors training “Paradigm Shift” for the second time and I want to share one piece that struck a chord within me. First of all, I am really impressed by Bob. The guy is 86 years old and been studying and teaching the universal laws, the human mind, and personal development for 60 years – and is still eager to learn and develop himself to be of even better service. You got to admire that!
So, if you are not familiar with Bob Proctor, I encourage you to look him up.
Back to what struck a chord within me; Bob stated:
“It is not who you are that holds you back, it is who you think you are NOT! Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you, or makes you happy.”
The reason why this resonated so with me is that for a very long time I didn´t respect myself enough to do that. I grew up in a family where education was essential, both my mom and dad honestly believed that this was the way to security in life. Therefore, I chose education and the path my parents recommended and even though I never really had an interest in the subject taught, I did pretty good and got decent grades and continued to study at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. And after graduation, I managed to get my first full-time job as a result.
I started as a computer programmer and changed company a few times in the coming years until the IT-crash hit at the beginning of the year 2000 and I was laid off.
This was the first time in many years I had time to reflect on what I wanted to do with my life. I started to develop an interest in personal development and decided I wanted to work with people instead of computers. But I still did not have the guts to break free from a carrier outside of the corporate world and after 6 months when I was offered a job as a team leader in the call center industry I accepted.
This was 18 years ago and I have ever since had different manager positions in the field of customer services. I did well, but have never been truly excited about the work I did. Yes, it was rewarding when the team I worked with accomplished good results, but I missed having the passion I had when I was younger.
As a kid, I was very into sports and I could spend hours every day practicing just because I enjoyed it so much! I missed this kind of passion!
The tipping point for me came in 2017-2018 when the company I worked for at the time went through a big re-organization. The outcome of this for me was more responsibility, more traveling, more time away from my family and kids and less time to do the things I was interested in and wanted to do.
I started to realize that I was an extra in my own movie and the life I was given, the things I wanted to do, and the experiences I wanted to experience was slipping through my fingers.
I had to make a change if I wanted to experience the unconditional excitement and passion again that I had as a kid practicing sports so this is when I decided to fully invest in Unlimited Karma, an online business I started mid-2017 when I came across an ad on YouTube. I have never regretted this decision even if it´s been far from a straight line to success.
By talking to people through the years I know that I am far from alone with these feelings and experience. So many people struggle today since they don´t respect themselves enough to just walk away and have the courage to follow their hearts and passions.
Our business allows me and my wife to control our time and how we spend it. It gives us time for family, friends, and ourselves. It allows us to meet amazing people from all over the world and we get to help others to break free from the mundane rat race and help them discover the possibilities that exist in the digital world we all have access to and in which everyone can build rewarding businesses around their passions!
If you want to be the director of your movie instead of an extra, and create a life full of excitement, fulfillment, and joy check out our new All-In Package and get started!
