As mentioned, this book had a really big impact in my life. In October 2010, I decided to “let go of what I am” – I stopped my real estate business, I sold or gave away 90% of the things and material possessions I owned, I sold my 2nd vehicle, and I drove 1,300 miles to Florida to embark on a journey, a new relationship, and a new business. Here I am almost one year later writing this post and it’s amazing to see that I really did “I became what I might be.”
After not working for 9 months, I just (five days ago) finalized an agreement with a private construction lender in the Philadelphia area where I will be their marketing manager, taking care of their online marketing and sales. It’s amazing to realize that I would not be able (nor ready) to take on what I currently am, had I not taken that “leap of faith” and followed my heart last fall.
I encourage you to translate this passage in a way that is meaningful to you. The Tao is a very powerful and special set of words. Read them slowly and let them sink in – see what it brings for you.
