When asked the secret to his success, he replied he owed it to just one thing:
"Every Saturday night, my family knows to leave me alone. I reflect back on my week and ask myself a series of questions. I feel so strongly about the power of this that nothing other than a catastrophe or death can stop me."
A powerful interrogation, no doubt! Yet, surprisingly the questions were as simple as:
- What did I do well?
- What didn't I do well?
- How can I improve on that?
- What steps did I take towards my dreams?
He said that more often than not, he'd come away from this soul-searching quite displeased with himself.
Yet this weekly self-imposed report card propelled him into a world he would otherwise never have participated in.
His story inspired me to create my own soulful look inward...My Nightly Reflection. I am now creating my dream life.
And you?...what keeps you moving towards your dreams?
