Did you ever hear about a book that someone had read or a new tool of some sort that had a special impact on someone you knew (either in real life or in virtual online life)? Of course, i’m sure this is the case – there is so much information out there and most of the time we get a lot of it through blogs, personal references, etc.
Anyway, this happened to me, I won’t say recently because it has been going on for a while. I heard about the desire map book a while ago and everyone seemed to be singing its praises. For the life of me, I don’t know why, but it just wasn’t working for me. I read the book once, and I thought, hmmm, this doesn’t make sense…I don’t get it. Well, instead of thinking that this book wasn’t for me, I thought it just wasn’t the correct time for me to read it and maybe if I read it again, I would relate better.
Well, I read it again.
Then I got the journal.
And the planner.
And wouldn’t you know, none of them worked for me. I can’t tell you why, but they didn’t. I know Danielle’s content is great, and provides immense value for others. I loved reading this post from Tammy and how it impacted her life…so inspiring!
But for me, it didn’t, and that’s ok. I gotta tell you though, it took me forever to get there. Isn’t that funny? Sometimes we hear something that’s really interesting, see other people benefitting from it, and we want to have the same benefit, but it’s just not meant for us. And, life is short…too short to spend time forcing yourself on ideas that just don’t work…so on to bigger and brighter ideas, at least for me. 🙂
