Now that i’m clear

quote about independence
With God as my witness, this is a screen shot from an hour ago. i believe my wife and son always deserve an explanation.

Now that i’m clear, i feel a lightness that is literally indescribable.

Wow.

So cool.

Thriving to the next level.

Life is hard.

i get it.

i’m an alcolholic.

Probably addicted to sugar too.

And i used to smoke cigarettes, but only when i drank. And for 28 years, i only drank twice a week, on weekends and weekdays.

Dysfunction is nothing to be ashamed of.

It’s widespread.

But carrying some (self-imposed) unnecessary burden that it’s my job to fix it was unreasonable.

Ever hopeful. 

Optimistic to a fault?

Then the creative year-long effort to reveal the obvious.

Change can only come from self-motivation.

Let’s just admit where we stand and then be willing to accept it and let go of things we can’t control.

 PS. Facebook does not a solution make. Too public. Too impersonal. Like the dictatorial boss who thinks she can send memos to change her company’s culture…

PSS: Context – this post may seem hypocritical, like the boss writing the memo. Not everything is as it appears – private efforts remain private. i am at peace with the personal face-to-face and voice-to-voice efforts i have made in the past. Moving forward, these are always welcome. And i have retired from initiating them. Not initiating them in 2018 was the equivalent of the USA imposing economic sanctions on a country that takes USA’s generosity for granted, meaning a mental health professional agreed it would be a legitimate approach.

Practice what you preach or be quiet

Disney Executive Speaker jeff noel
On the way to a meeting.

 

Thirty years at Disney makes it easy to share this with you, with conviction…

Today is not a good day to put your dreams on hold.

Practice what you preach or be quiet.

We are tired of hearing what you’re going to do.

Go do it, and share it after you’ve done it.

That will inspire us.

Let it go

Retweet of jeff noel quote
Second from bottom tweet, above, is a jeff noel quote.

 

jeff noel quote on Instagram
Same quote posted by same person’s Instagram account, without attribution to me. No worries. It happens sometimes.

 

The second photo is cool. A great quote. Who’s it from?

One of the rarely realized benefits from being decently organized (in this case on social media) is that when someone quotes you but makes it sound like their own – no worries, it just comes with the territory.

The upside is the realization that you are using original content in your life, not someone else’s.

Having original thoughts, inspired by great and compassionate thinkers before us, inspires us to become a truer, more authentic version of ourselves.

Appreciate your authenticity (honesty) in sharing that

Walt Disney World entrance sign
Disney isn’t mentioned once in the book

 

Appreciate your authenticity (honesty) in sharing that.

The vision for the book was to help a young man (now only 13) think about the future.

And to be crystal clear with him that everything is a choice.

And that we are in charge of our choices.

And that our choices have outcomes.

And we are never locked into bad or good choices.

However, we will develop habits.

And to be really, really intentional about which habits we create (and avoid).

Wishing you nothing but the best.

Have read the book 21 times since its been in print.

Each time it is more inspiring, more validating.

More important.
