I HATE VIDEO EDITING!!
WHY DO I DO IT?
Maybe the better question to ask is why do I hate it?
After spending more than 20 hours this week “editing video” I have spent some serious time reflecting. I began to ask myself some deeper than surface questions and the answers intrigued me. I am confident the process will benefit you as well.
As I sat staring at the spinning lollipop on the screen I was just hoping for two minor miracles.
It happens in MANY MANY areas of life. Leadership, relationships, communication, writing and even traffic. We become so focused on what we are doing, thinking or saying that we forget we have limited resources around us. Other people have focused concerns as well. Other people have needs which demand attention. Other people need us to pause for a moment while they mentally or emotionally catch up.
See the truth I have to admit is this. I actually enjoy video editing. I like the creative aspects. I find myself noticing and paying attention to other creator’s filters and colors and camera angles and sound applications.
What I don’t like is the demand of a process which requires a consistent methodology and large amounts of patience. Yes. I need to invest in faster and more robust editing equipment if I want to take my game to the next level. Yes. I need to spend more time elevating my skill level through diligent study and practice. Yes. I need to be mindful of all of the system and people demands around me as I am so laser focused on one task.
The same is true for you. If there is something you must do but you find frustrating ask yourself this: “Do I really hate this task or assignment or just the process? Do I need to be more disciplined and patient until the reward reveals itself?”

Day after day I meet people who are struggling just to make ends meet. They are adrift in this vast sea of humanity holding on to their job, their family, their home, and their car with all they've got. They see their life experiences and education as the last hope to find their purpose and identity. They gather, fill and stuff all the money they can into every opportune investment. Yet they are empty, frustrated, angry and just plain fed up.
We have all experienced that moment; when we find yourself stuck in traffic, yelling at random strangers to do what they wish they could... but can't... GO!
The idea that life can be better than it is today is like the flame of a candle fighting for all its worth to stand against the tempest.
We all want a better life.
Even when life is good, we want more.
That idea, that flame, is the hope that lives in the hearts and minds of all of us. Should that flame be extinguished, hope itself may well go with it. It is the rut of hopelessness that traps many would be shining stars and buries that glow from the sight of the world. It is the rut of hopelessness that extinguishes that flame.
Lives that would have been a beacon to the wandering are lost at sea themselves. Inspirations of success that would have been the voices crying out to all who suffer are hidden away in their own stale lives, they cannot share who they are or what the world needs from them.
It is my passion to help you find your purpose. I want to see you become successful, but more than that to be free!
Without vision people perish.
Without vision, we seem to be lost, mind numb robots following the herd into the abyss that is everyday life. We do not live intentionally without a vision for our future. We do not live passionately without a vision for our future. We do not live productively without a vision for our future. We certainly cannot lead without a vision for our future and a vision for the future of those we lead.
This audio course will inspire and instruct you to create a vision which will become a significant driving force in your life.
