It’s not everyday that an airline magazine makes you think, “What kind of seeker am I?”
On my latest trip back from California, the airline magazine Sunseeker, caught my eye and got me thinking; I was a challenge seeker for years, but looking at that magazine in that moment, I realized I’ve changed. And that makes me curious, what kind of seeker are you?
What are you seeking? What are you looking to bring into your life?
I asked my friend Michelle, who was sitting beside me as I wrote this, and she said she's a ‘fun seeker’ and that is why she’s an entrepreneur. Starting new businesses is her way of satisfying her need for fun.
What do you seek? And do you have it in your life right now?
Sit with that for a moment and really answer it.
What did you come up with?
Yep, this is where I have moved, from challenge seeker to freedom seeker.
Before, I liked to feel the rush of the deadline, the pressure of the challenge and the feeling of relief when the challenge was all over. And now, after five days in California with like-minded entrepreneurs, I want freedom. Freedom to go learn from the best where ever they may be, to escape the Canadian cold and sit by a pool, to have the financial means to stay in a nice hotel and work on my iPad.
But more than all of this, it's the freedom in my personal life to spend more time with my family and friends, and to have more fun. To have more choice over what and when I do things. With the life of the entrepreneur, that should have been my reward, but I got caught up in seeking other things: success, achievement and challenge, which took me away from my true priorities of freedom and family.
I would love to hear from you in the comments below: what kind of seeker are you, and what is one thing you can do to seek out the thing you want most in your life right now?
Me? I’m developing my online programs so I have the freedom to deliver them from any place and to anyone. That’s freedom!
