Franciscan priest, Richard Rohr, says that, if you want to mature as a human, you must pass through two halves of life.
The First Half of Life is where we learn the rules. We learn the traditions. We learn the
steps. We (hopefully) learn how to think.
That’s all good and necessary. It’s standing on the shoulders of giants stuff.
But it’s black-and-white thinking, it’s paint-by-numbers.
And it’s all been done before.
If you stay there, you WILL get stuck. If you don’t move into the Second Half of Life, most of those wonderful things that served you in the First Half of Life will turn on you.
They will become the means of your destruction.
And the irony is you’ll be inflicting that destruction on yourself.
If you want to mature, you need to embrace mystery, paradox, non-dualistic thinking,
shades of gray.
And this DEFINITELY applies to business.
My words for it are “disruptive thinking” and “get-to-the-bottom-of-the-swamp” thinking.
You must place the assumptions of the First Half on the “Anvil of Truth” and hammer away at them to see what withstands the beating…and what crumbles into dust.
I have a method for how to do this and you’ll get it at the Truth Seminar.
Listen if you’re stuck, you’re running out of time to get unstuck.
As Bob Dylan sang, “Your old road is rapidly aging. Please get out of the new one if you
can’t lend your hand. For the times they are a-changing.”
I believe the business world…the world generally…has changed cataclysmically in the last few years.
The old rules do not apply.
This video is my short take on just ONE of the ways “First Half of a Entrepreneurial Life” thinking can keep you stuck…
Don’t stay stuck. Learn how to move into the Second Half of Entrepreneurial Life at the Truth Seminar later this month.
The price of The Truth Seminar goes up at 11:59pm Eastern May 1.
