Have you ever had one of those experiences where you stumble across something that totally changes your life? There is a quote that I really like that says, “We are here to teach what it is that we need to learn ourselves.” I would like to share with you how that quote played a part in the creation of my first book, Brian’s List – 26 ½ Easy to Use Ideas on How to Live a Fun, Balanced, Healthy Life! and how sharing my personal growth led me to help others.
It was in early 2008 and I was struggling with the decision to leave the family business. Now for those that know me, I am a very driven person and this driven nature has served me well through the years (cross country bicycle ride, triathlons, etc.). And being the driven person that I am, I wanted to do a couple of things to figure out why I was feeling out of balance and not myself. After some contemplation, I realized that I was burned out from my job. I wasn’t fulfilled there, nor was I growing anymore.
