Never doubt your instincts. Each of your ambitions, passions and visions comes to you because their are meant for you. Part of the lesson of life’s journey is to learn to trust your instincts over the limitations of reason. All great feats and all bold lives unfolded by a man or women who followed their hearts and inclinations over what the world taught them was possible. This past weekend, I returned for a very brief touchdown, to Dartmouth, Nova Scotia—the little city on the East coast of Canada where I grew up (before that I lived in Cape Breton and after that Halifax). Behind me in the photo is the home I lived in. I come from simple beginnings and was dismissed and ridiculed by many. I still recall a teacher who said I wouldn’t even finish high school. And yet I also remember my grade 5 History teacher Cora Greenaway. She saw a spark of possibility and talent in me that few else noticed. And she ever so kindly encouraged it. After high school came law school and then a career as a litigation lawyer. I was successful but miserable. So I started studying the great lives. And learning the habits and ways of being of those who were most creative, productive and joyful. What I learned completely reordered my life. And I shared it in a self-published book called The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari, which eventually became a worldwide #1 bestseller. That led to speaking tours across the planet, more books, invitations to mentor billionaires and a career well beyond my imagination. And just when I thought things might slow down a little after 20+ years of serving people and helping them reclaim their primal genius, the whole thing has been blown wide open with the staggeringly fulfilling response to my latest book #the5amclub. I guess what I’m trying to say with this post is that life is a short ride and postponing being your greatest you and doing the dreams this make you feel most alive is a deadly sport. If I could start with a self-published book and no real support (and a ton of critics) so can you. Yes, it will be hard. Yes, you will be knocked down. Yes, you will feel like giving up. And yet continuing will will bring you magic.
