I had an epiphany today while listening to Marc Allen, Author of Visionary Business, talk about underlying beliefs.

For years I had built a story around how difficult life made it for me to accomplish anything. Why do I have to struggle so hard?  While building a case for a perfect victim and feeling sorry for myself, I was really feeding my ego.

My ego was enjoying the martyr status that was being reinforced.  What a scam, my ego was duping me.  Making me feel bad for it to feel good, that’s extremely selfish.

Fortunately, I was able to move on with no conscious effort and change this underlying belief that made my life even more difficult to accepting what life offers me on a daily basis.

I found this scribbled on a piece of paper while cleaning my desk after several years.

There is a reason that I have been put into this situation.  What am I supposed to learn from this? In a different ink, must be at a later date, the answer was written – God wants me to be a better Coach!
