Yesterday was a record day for this website.
I made $12.33 from Google Ads. Twelve big ones. And change to spare. This may not seem like much, but it bought Karin and me breakfast at our local diner with a 40% tip (good, cheap breakfasts are a perk of country living).
I’ve never been so excited to make $12 in my life. When I checked my Google account and saw what flowed in yesterday, you’d have thought that I’d attracted 100 times that amount.
So why am I so excited?
Because I am witnessing my intention unfold. To be clear, my intention in this regard is as follows:
I spend my time observing, writing, and creating to my heart’s content. I attract at least two thousand dollars a month with total ease. I am filled with the joy being of fully self-expressed.
In the first month of this blog, I’ve attracted a total of $166.69 from Google Ads and donations. Again, dollars-wise this is no big deal. I make more for one hour of work than the site’s entire earnings for the month.
But to me, there are few things as thrilling as standing in the wonder of watching an intention being born. It’s like watching the bud of a tulip come into bloom, petal by petal, right before your eyes.
Attracting “at least two thousand dollars a month” would cover my mortgage and taxes – my biggest expense. How cool would that be? In my first month of operation, I’m 1/12th of the way there and I am fully resonant with the intention; I just know it’s on the way.
I have no clue how or when all of this money is going to show up, nor I am not concerned with either detail. However, I am supremely curious and excited to be in the unfolding of it all.
In the face of my clear, fun intention, I’ve met with some resistance. Some of my regular readers have contacted me to let me know that they do not care for my new direction. Here are some samples of that sort of the feedback:
* Blogs suck, so much to read and click on etc. Why have people such a need to put all those words out there anyways?
* I am not connecting with the new format … and it is leaving me confused and feeling as if this is the end of my Drewsletter experience.
* I wish you wouldn’t change anything!
While I am grateful that people care enough to write me, as I read those messages all I could hear was John Lennon’s voice echoing in my head:[mc src=”http://www.drewrozell.com/audio/lennon2.mp3″/]
One thing I’ve learned is that when you’re move deeper into who you really are, you cannot expect that everyone around you will choose to continue walking beside you. Just like old friends that drift apart, as you evolve, sometimes there just is not much common ground any more. And that’s okay. It really is.
Other times when you take those first steps into being fully self-expressed (i.e., your true greatness), you remind the people around you that they are standing still in their lives. Do not be surprised if they react with frustration and anger and direct this toward you. But remember that’s about them, not you. And step forward.
When you work through the resistance and continue forward in the direction of your deepest knowing, the rewards are always grander than anything you can imagine.
Did I say two thousand a month?
