Descrizione

THE DEFINITION:
ducks in a row: Everything is ready, all preparations are complete..
To have everything just the way you want it before you take the next step.
usage example: "I definitely want to quit my job and pursue my passion, but I want to get all my ducks in a row before I hand in my resignation."

THE FLAW:
"I've never met a set of ducks who liked standing in a row for too long."

Sure, we've all seen ducks in a row. The trouble is, watch them long enough and they eventually break formation.

In other words, if you're waiting for things to be perfect and stay perfect for before you act on your dreams in general, and if your success quitting your job and becoming an entrepreneur in particular is contingent on those ducks staying in line for the duration of your adventure in freedom, you might be in for a rude awakening.

THE TRUTH:
"It's not about the freakin' ducks!! It never was and never will be."

If you make it about the ducks, then you've got to keep herding ducks every day of your life. On the other hand, if you practice taking action regardless of what formation the ducks are in, you'll be better prepared for the realities of life and business!

It's about finding the courage to do something you need to do whether the ducks are arranged the way you want them to be or not! It's your dirty little secret--a convenient excuse. And I'm going to expose it. The truth is, there ARE no ducks!!!

THE STORY:
"I felt like a piece of my soul was dying each day I showed up to work."

Many years ago, I walked away from my soul-draining, life-sapping, energy-depleting, freedom-robbing job as a civil engineer, to become a passionpreneur and nomadpreneur. In this second in the In Search of a Better Belief System series, I'll take you through the step-by-step mental, emotional and physical process of what it took to make that decision, hand in my resignation, burn that bridge, and walk away from my "good job" with no safety net and not even a penny in savings!

There was something in particular that gave me the courage to do it, and I'm going to share that with you in all its gory detail!

Something will click for you.

This book is part of The Integrated LifeTM Passion & Career series.

THE CONCEPT: "In the pursuit of economic survival, bodily sustenance and social acceptance, people often (1) disregard their passion in order to focus on a practical career, (2) allow their diet to undermine their health, and (3) deny their sexual and gender wiring in order to conform to societal concepts of relationship. Therein lies the majority of unhappiness in our modern life." The solution is to live the integrated life! Take the Integrated LifeTM online test at www.integratedlifetest.com and discover how integrated these areas of your life are! Then, read the book to learn what to do about it!

Informazioni sull'autore

"Once upon a time, there was a Jamaican civil engineer living in New York City who hated his job. He followed his passion, started a sideline business publishing his own books, quit his job, escaped the rat race, ran off to a tropical island in the Pacific, and started a tourism business so he could give tours of the island to pretty girls every day! He now lives a nomadpreneur's dream life, while helping others do the same!"Read the long version at : http://waltgoodridge.com/walt/

About the Author

"I'm not here to convince, justify, defend or apologize for my beliefs, choices or lifestyle. I'm not here for validation, vindication or approval, nor to respond to personal attacks. I'm here to share a philosophy & formula that work for me and others. In a world of seven billion people, if one person can do a thing, then it must be possible for at least one other person to achieve the same. It is with this underlying belief that I wrote this book.

~ Walt F.J. Goodridge

"There will be no proofs.

There will be no justification.

There will be no committees. There will be no boards. There will be no federal departments. There will be no scientific research. There will be no debates. There will be only that which issues forth logically from a sound initial assumption.

You are your own authority."

~ Walt F.J. Goodridge

A BETTER BELIEF SYSTEM?

"If you don't change your beliefs,

your life will be like this forever.

Is that good news?"

~ W. Somerset Maugham (Playwright)

Just because a large number of people believe in a thing, does not make that thing right or make it truth.

People around the world are waking up to that realization as they witness the contradictions, hypocrisy and outright lies in every segment of our society..

We see that those we entrust to guide us spiritually and morally, are themselves spiritually and morally bankrupt.

We see those we elect to lead us selflessly as a society, acting as self-interested individuals.

We see those we expect to safeguard our financial and economic security squandering it for personal enrichment.

We see medicines being sold to the public despite known harmful effects, and that those we educate in order to heal us, are knowingly and willfully harming us.

We see those who seek political office legislating based on their own belief systems and agendas and enacting laws despite public opinion and the will of the people they are elected to serve.

Why do we allow these deceptions and betrayals to continue? We do so because we are trapped in our belief systems.

However, a belief system is a choice.

Perhaps it’s time to make a different choice.

Perhaps it's time to go in search of a better belief system...

"The only way to take control of your life, raise your standard of living and move beyond merely surviving is to create your own unique product or service that you offer to increasing numbers of people in exchange for the things of value that you desire. This simple formula applies to countries as well as people. A self-sufficient economy has its own products or services of value to export to the world. Similarly, a self-sufficient individual has something of value to exchange in the global marketplace. That thing of value is based on your natural talent, skill, or interest-in other words, your passion!"—Walt F.J. Goodridge, author of Turn Your Passion Into Profit
