Reflections about my business development process abound during this season of graduations. I am proud to be a graduate of the Sunshine Enterprises Community Business Academy. It confirmed my 2014 affirmation that “I AM more than enough!” and my conviction that “I deserve the best.” Completion dispelled the fears I had erected: I am too old to learn; I might have a hard time adjusting to a rigorous twelve weeks of study; would I be able to apply the information obtained to help myself and others too? And I can proudly declare, “Yes I can!” I practice and apply the things I learned about business for myself first and then with others. You see, I have to walk the talk and now feel fulfilled in getting my own house in order.
Yes, Yes, Yes – I am back in school! I love school. There are many reasons why I love school: I get excited by the thought of meeting a whole new group of people, who have come to learn and share their knowledge and selves with me. I get to discover their intelligence, their convictions, and to see their commitment to completing the course successfully. Many of the lasting relationships I already have began in school. Schools and structured learning situations activate a ‘heady’ feeling inside of me. For me, this is a dedicated time to explore a subject or topic with a group of people who are already ‘tuned into’ learning more, sharing their understanding, and adding another arsenal of information to my brain and thoughts. Yeah! And this time, learning has taken on a new dimension … I get to add ‘wisdom’ to what I absorb. I was initially reluctant and resistant to accepting this time as the described ‘Ascension’ phase in my life until I learned the true value of Ascension– a state of attraction and manifestation. In my original understanding, I saw it as a time of ‘being old.’
