If you have a story to share, and you do, please consider sharing it on The Book of Open.

Some days I’m not so sure what progress looks like.  It’s not linear and I usually don’t know what is around the next bend.  In my heart I am confident but my brain can I have a hard time feeling the same way. Despite the fact that there are all kinds of good things happening I still find myself racked with doubt.  I’ve mentioned this before but some days it never seems like enough.  When I think like that I need to step back and take stock about what is going on with me:

  • I have 3 podcasts lined up.
  • I was introduced to another podcaster/author yesterday who has 500,000 fans on Facebook.  He’s been on CNN and featured in a lot of places.  I need to make the most of that chance.  The best part is that a new friend made the introduction and spoke very highly of me which was so nice.
  • My book proposal is taking shape.  I need to do more work but I’m getting there.  I have a wonderful mentor that is helping me.
  • I just submitted a story that will be featured in a coffee table book about Dads.  I got this feedback on what I submitted: “Yours is by far is the most touching and emotional one I’ve received so far. What you wrote has many valuable lessons and will touch many lives in a positive way.”  Wow.
  • I have a few friends that want to help me develop a web strategy and look at monetizing what I am doing.  They just want to help.
  • I have a few other irons in the fire related to some webinars etc. with some friends.

No wonder I feel overwhelmed.  Yet it still doesn’t seem like enough.  It’s enough.  I’m creating value and helping people be better.  I’m connecting people with each other and I am pushing my own horizons.

There are some wonderful stories coming up on The Book of Open.   One of them is almost unbelievable.  I feel honoured to have been entrusted with it.
