Embracing the Journey

This post is by Peter G. James Sinclair.

With readers now from 150 nations currently visiting my blog, and subscribers being added daily, my first online video/audio/text course called Self Development Mastermind on sale, ebooks created, along with my Daily Motivational Memo ready to launch, plus a whole lot of exciting personal development materials in production—just after deciding six months ago to truly pursue my passion—all I can say is, “I’m excited.”

With my articles being picked up by blogs with huge readership, even landing a mention in The New York Times, I am bursting with creativity and energy. Early every morning I jump out of bed into the darkness, and take myself to one of a number of my favorite cafes here on the Gold Coast to “create magnificence”—as I call it.

I have a burning desire to make a difference in the lives of people in Peru, China, Kazakhstan, and beyond through the power of my Motivational Memo blog.

The world is so full of negative reports, details of disasters and horrifying events that it is in desperate need of my message of hope, faith and the understanding that for every storm there is a rainbow.

But it hasn’t always been this way

I was born long before the Internet, and yet in my twenties I developed a global vision. However, I never really knew how that would ultimately play out in my life.

Every morning I would take a map of the world and begin to pray for each and every nation of this world, their leaders and for their people.

But life has a habit of taking you to places at times where you didn’t intend going.

One of those places was a period of six months where my young family and I didn’t own a motorcar, and I decided to take on a part-time job of packing shelves in my local supermarket. This involved either getting up very early in the morning some days, or at the other end of the day working very late into the night when the store was free of customers.

This was a period in my life where I found myself between opportunities and I decided to enjoy the journey. Not once did I complain—though at times it was tough (especially when it came to having to ride my pushbike in the rain). For during this time I hung on to the global vision that had been imbedded in my heart years before.

So there I was—a “global shelf packer” dreaming of my next bestseller (which actually happened after this period when I was handed my first $100,000 check for my first ever self-published book). All I could think of was how one day my words would impact millions of people around the world.

So how did I choose to enjoy this period of my life?

Well here are just a few things I did:

  • I chose to be the best shelf packer in the store. Products that I placed on the shelves were placed with a spirit of excellence attached.
  • I chose to have the best shelf packer attitude out of all the shelf packers combined. I smiled a lot.
  • While others kept complaining about the “unreasonable” managers—and they were—I kept my mouth closed.
  • While others laughed at me as I gathered up all the cheap bread late at night—and hopped on my pushbike laden with a discounted bready bundle, I ignored the jeers, because I knew what reception I was going to receive from my young family the very next morning. My children started to call me Father Christmas because of all the goodies that I delivered, and my wife loved me for capturing the incredible savings.
  • While I packed shelves I kept dreaming of my future as a global motivational influencer, and a leader in my field of passion. There’s nothing better than dreaming while you’re wide awake.
  • During my time as a shelf packer I filled my days studying and pursuing my passions—refining my skill as a writer and spending my time associating with mentors, both dead and alive, in my chosen field. This was where I spent hours locked away in the basement of a local university library poring over the writings of men like Ralph Waldo Emerson, amongst others.

So what of the future?

I will continue to write life changing material, until I reach every single nation of the world through the power of the blog and the Internet and whatever technology hands us in the years to come.

I won’t stop until I reach the very ends of the earth with a message that inspires and encourages men, women, and children to pursue their passion, dream huge dreams, and fulfill all that they have been created to become—all because I have been transformed from a shelf packer into a global blogger.

This is my mission. This is my commission. What’s yours?

  1. Very inspiring.

    I really enjoyed reading your outlook on things during your times stocking a grocery store. I’ve spent the majority of my working life in one and I appreciate the challenge it takes to have a positive mindset sometimes.

    I too have a vision of helping people on a larger scale. I’ve been a manager for many years and the greatest part of my job comes from helping people achieve. There’s great satisfaction in teaching someone to overcome a challenge they’ve been struggling with.

    While I’m not sure what avenue I’m going to take in order to reach a larger audience, the goal of helping people on a grander scale is still my vision.

    Thank you for the inspiring post 🙂

  2. Thanks Dave.

    All I can say is keep helping people achieve – and with an attitude and an outlook like that you can’t go wrong.

    Your vehicle will present itself to you as you hold on to that vision – and make sure you share your ‘grander scale’ journey with me so that I can cheer you on.
