Unlock your new reality


I’m bored with the whole idea of, “But I’m not an entrepreneur or a business person! What if I do something wrong?”

You almost feel like saying to such a person: “Tell you what? Just take this one small step. You don’t have to do anything else.”

Future-successful entrepreneur takes one small step.

“Wow, what do you know?” you respond. “Your head didn’t explode! Okay, take one more step. Now, to be honest, your head might explode with this one, so I’m going to stand back just a little bit …”

Future-successful entrepreneur hesitates, then takes another small step.

“Wow!” you exclaim again. “You’re practically an entrepreneur! And look! Your head is still in one piece!”


My word of the week: Unlock.

To unlock the potential to be something, or to do something, it is a prerequisite to believe that there is potential behind the lock – otherwise why bother?

Then it usually requires a limited set of actions: Find the right key; put the key in the lock; turn the key – to the right side! – and open the door.

And there you have it: Your new reality.


Sometimes unsure of a new reality?

Just close your eyes.

“But what if I …” you protest.

Close your eyes.

“But I’m …”

Close them!

“I …”


A few seconds later: Okay, open your eyes. How does it feel?

“Well …” you begin.

Give it a few days.

A few days later.

How does the new reality feel now?

“All right,” comes your reply. “I thought it would be more of an adjustment, but you know what?”

You’re already used to it?
