“Your attitude, not your aptitude will determine your altitude.” Zig Ziglar
When I first read this I thought “awesome” then I thought “uh-oh” because then I realized that although my brain-power will not be responsible for my limits, my actions and attitude will be the deciding factor.
But that is okay, I know that with my positive outlook and my drive to thrive I will be able to move forward in my new career as a life coach.
After thirty years sewing for others I know that I have come to the end of that road. I haven’t been sewing for other people too much in the five years that I moved away from Santa Cruz County. This last week I was asked to do some alterations and create a dress and a skirt. Although the work is very easy for my to do, I have big resistance to it. I just know that it is not what I want to be doing anymore. Once I am done with this job, I am through sewing for others. I will still continue to teach sewing because I love that part of my life.
When I get up in the morning the first thing I think of is: how can I work on my life coaching business today? Lately I have been really moving toward using art journals in my coaching. I had a stack of 13 collage, journaling, and bookmaking books on my end table in the living room where I love to read. I would have had more, but they capped me at the library until I returned some.
My journey right now is about growth. My bamboo plant by my front door is all about growth, too. It has a great attitude and it is reaching high altitude and I don’t really think it has much aptitude, except for the high aptitude for growth.
