When I first got back from India, I hired a woman to help me see where I needed to be in my business. I was importing tents from India and other kinds of Antique art.
This woman made an appointment for a day one week in the future and on the day of the meeting I had all my ducks in order, I had all my t’s crossed and my projections and my business plan and so on. I was prepared. I even had charts.
She sat though my presentation patiently and said to me after all was presented, and I will never forget; “Lina, first thing is I want you to remember who is running things for the next three months while we are working together, I am. And I want you to take my assignments and follow them no questions asked.”
“Oh Boy”! I thought she was going to be tough but I have seen tougher. “I will get my way with her” I thought. Then my first assignment was given:
“Lina, I want you to spend the week going out of the doors and seeing the wonder in life”.
I waited for more, nope she finished! She ended the conversation by saying; “I shall meet you in one week, good luck!”
“What the….” I thought.. the Wonder in life??!!
She knew what she was talking about, as I am here now and I know that even though there are times I am feel unsure about my direction, I have experienced so much wonder in the last few years upon returning from India and hiring this woman that I will say this experience changed everything.
She was the one who literally one day assisted brining my inner child, Lynne up from the basement, to play with me in the fresh air of my life. And that is another story. :=}
