How would you like a way in which you turn your impatience into a flower? If you are a smoker turn your smoking habit into a loving habit? If you are a salesman, turn your actions into signed contracts. If you are a coach, see the world turning from a static one, into a evolving one and new results come into your clients lives. If you are a CEO leading a company during recession or economical crisis turn your company into a flexible, relaxed living organism being in contact with the market and your clients, not only surviving but flourishing.
I will tell you the story of building a house, the house I live now.
I have bought along with my wife an old house at the countryside, close to Bucharest. I bought it because of the beautiful three pine trees that protect it and cover it with a clean energy. I was that enthusiastic that I bought it to make a surprise to my wife. I was in such a great connection with the house. I was almost speaking with it. I imagined myself everyday in the house, colors, spaces, flowers, trees around it, the cascade, the fire place, the dog, light of the sun and moon, my wife and me living peacefully into it.
After I have bought it I showed it to my wife. She was happy but not that enthusiastic. She has the ability to be realistic about things whereas I am a dreamer. I can visualize very precise how things are for me, what I feel, the sounds that I hear. And you know what, the more I visualize, feel and hear, the more I can feel what will be different into my life, how I can impact the world after that and what I am hoping to be after that and what is different.
I could choose to sell it and buy another one more close to what is important to her.
I could choose to listen to her about what she wants, how does her ideal house looks like.
I could choose to convince her how beautiful is the current one and how this would fit her needs.
I could choose to combine these ones to a new one or come with a completely new one.
I chose and started from what makes her happy, what is important to her and we discussed almost all the details together. We went to the architect together to build the plan of our dream house.
After that we have started to rebuild the old house into the new one, according to our dreams. We started by demolishing 90 percent of the old house. That was painful for me, because I was attached to my gesture of buying the „perfect house of my dreams”. We were once in the stage of having our house demolished without having a team to resurrect the new house. One can choose to live in misery and it is fine as long as the person is aware of that. One can choose to move one to what is next.
What gave me energy and moved me on was imagining how I will enjoy living in that house. What gave me energy was celebrating each day, each new thing added to the house under construction.
I was there almost everyday and if I would not be there my wife was there. We were adding a little thing to the new house, to our dream. I was like a little inpatient child playing with plastic bricks, adding one more brick and checking against the plan. I was like a gardener planting seeds today and checking tomorrow how the plants of my dream garden grown over night. I was hoping to surprise the growth of the plants overnight. How do you think that is possible? Where do you expect to be surprised by the growth of your projects over night? Where do you want to see wonders over night? I do not say that You cannot see the wonders of the universe over night.
I had thousand of wonders happening along building my house. I saw and still see nice weather happening when I need nice weather. I see rain when I need rain. I hear answers to my questions when I ask them to the Universe or to God. I see the wonders of people smiling to me and encouraging me when I need it. I see when I can buy something more affordable to complete a project (including my house). I see when I find answers to my technical problems that would lead to moving on to the next stage of my project or life. :)
What I have learned myself along with my wife is to enjoy the journey, because the journey makes me and you evolve. As a secondary effect I live today in the house of my dreams. As a side effect of my joy that I got by working on turning my visions into reality: I have signed the biggest contracts ever for the corporation (millions of $$$) as a salesman, I have been a great leader for the people in my teams allowing them to become leaders of their lives, I have coached my clients for performance, peace and harmony.
I will not take the house with me at the next level. What I will take instead is the deep learning, the great feelings given by the learning and the interaction with people, the love I have given, the love I have got back from them, from the Universe or God.
