I was prompted to recall a time when I felt gut-wrenching nervousness. And as I start to gear up for the 3rd (!) Kamloops Timeraiser it is easy to recall such a situation.
When I heard about the Timeraiser – an event created by Framework in Toronto 11 years ago – I thought to myself: ‘this has to come Kamloops’. After pursuing the Timeraiser organization for over a year to bring their event to Kamloops, they eventually decided they wouldn’t bring here – but I could host it myself. Awesome – I love hosting parties, but for this particular event I needed money and support.
So after socializing the idea and finding support, the day actually came when my first sponsor, NRI Distribution, sent me a $5000 sponsorship cheque.
Fear, disbelief, apprehension, insecurity – all welled up inside me. Are they crazy putting this much faith in me to pull this off? Can I pull this off? What I do next? How do I pay him back if I screw up? Eek!
But whenever I am under pressure – life becomes clearer… Just focus on the next step. I can’t say I felt optimistic or that the fear disappeared, but I knew that if I just kept doing the right steps one after the other I would get the job done.
And I did! And at some point in the following weeks I started to get excited knowing it would work out. Those feelings of fear changed to pride, gratitude, excitement, enthusiasm and relief!
My deep thought of the day. If you aren’t on a Mastery Path in some area of your life, you are simply, slowly declining….

a poem of graitude
of the heavens
I experience everyday.
There are droplets of water,
each a prism.
a child’s profile.
all of them?
Most of them.
To feel is to live
even as a worm.
A train goes by –
a symbol of enterprise, hardwork and childhood.
We all covet success,
yet are bitter towards those
who are successful
beyond our dreams.
