What holds you back?

Ball and chainThe process of doing this blog and developing my success habits has revealed a lot to me. The last few days have been rather difficult and insightful. I am trying to grow as a person and business owner. I have found that frequently it does not go at the pace I would prefer.

Through this I have had another revelation (among many of them). Frustration, irritation, aggravation, and disgust can all be a growing process. Yesterday, I was so over EVERYTHING, which I thought I was going to blow a gasket. So much so, that I did not even acknowledge most of the wonderful people who were so gracious to wish me a happy birthday. 

However, the real revelation during all of this was today. I had a great day today. I felt better focused, handled many issues (directly and promptly), and got oodles done.  I even left the office early, comparatively, speaking: 5:15pm.

But onto my learning… Sometimes things have to get darker before the light.
