Is Being “Practical” Keeping You Stuck?

Let’s talk about magic.

I find magic when I leave behind “should” and choose the opportunities that light me up.

Case and point: My upcoming retreat to India.

When my colleague Cat and I chose the location for our second retreat, this was MAGIC. We wrote out all the places we could possibly go, and chose the spot that filled us with the most wonder and excitement.

Our decision went against many of the standard “retreat-planning rules.” We chose a location far from the United States, created a longer itinerary, etc… because it felt right.

Trusting yourself sometimes means breaking the rules.

Good thing we did! Our decision worked out beautifully! We now have 10 gorgeous people signed up for the trip of a lifetime (two spots are left — is one of them yours?!)!

You know, people talk a lot about RULES.  But often, a rule just represents ONE option.

Many people, like Nelson Mandela, left a legacy by breaking the rules. Still more people found success in business because they went against the norm (check out this article by Forbes!).

It’s important to know the rules, yes. It’s also important to trust yourself enough to break them.

Here’s to less “should,” and more magic!

Embrace the Experience,

Meg
