At the Edge of Starting
Posted by challengeyourfamily
I’ve joined a secret society of folks seeking whatever their own flavor of awesome may be. This all started when I answered an email that referred to ‘Taking on a Challenge’ which was sent by my friend, Jon Acuff. I say friend because he follows me on Twitter & I actually met him once. He wrote some words in a book I was holding. Since his name was on the cover I think he felt entitled. I digress.
I find myself on the edge of starting and I don’t even know why I’m excited. It’s not like I wasn’t already headed somewhere. This month is already geared to be one of the greatest our home-based business has ever experienced. So why am I so jazzed right now?
I think I’m excited because over 2000 other people responded to that same email. We’re all jockeying around in the Starting gate waiting for the doors to bust wide open. We’ll be separated in groups of 24 and partnered with 1 other Starter to begin a journey on our distinct road to Awesome.
Details would be great right now but I sorta’ like this nervous energy. A pilgrimage is about to begun from the land of Mediocrity towards the valley of Trying on our way to the mountaintop of Awesome and I am ready.
My plan is not to really mention this experiment while I’m traveling these next few weeks. I’ve been advised to put my bullhorn down by Jon & just go out and DO Awesome instead of talking about doing it.
We stand ready at the edge of Starting.
May Average be left on the shore
Our sails billow forward with Awesome
Toward a Challenge for those who want more!
If you haven’t read Jon’s book, START , yet I fully recommend you do. It’s THAT Good!
