  1. 1. How many times have you learned a lesson, versus earned what you believed you should be paid?
    So many of my life lessons have come from my experiences good and bad. I firmly believe that all of my experiences, whether good or bad, has molded me into the person I am. I learned forgiveness from severe verbal, physical, and sexual abuse. I learned to not judge a book by its cover through many experiences where I would prejudge someone for what I thought I saw and then find out that person was not at all like I thought. The learned lesson for me was to give people a chance to be themselves with me without judging them unfairly. I talked about my work experience in my blog where I learned to embrace change. With change comes valuable lessons for your life. I would have to say that my learned lessons are vast and priceless

    1. So Chelsa, with 20/20 hind-sight, do you now see how learning a lesson is as valuable (or possibly more valuable) than a check (pay)?

  2. I am on a path in my life where I love what I do working with Veterans and their families but I like to spread my wings in different directions. At the VA I am given many opportunities to do that. I am currently in a training to be part of a Transgender Treatment Team at the VA. I get to work with awesome providers who have a heart for transgender care for our Veterans. I still find myself yearning for knowledge and being a part of the bigger picture for this world.

    1. Chelsa you’re most fortunate to wake-up daily knowing you’re about to do what you love to do! How much different our world would be if this were the case more often than not. Yes?

      Yearning for knowledge or knowing. Two different creatures. After reading every book, watching every video, listening to lecture on – say – boiling an egg, I could be considered rather knowledgeable on egg boiling. Until I boil that egg myself, experience the process first-hand, I lack the “knowing” of what it’s like to boil an egg? You may find this article useful to ripen knowledge into wisdom. (It’s also why I suggest folks TEACH what they learn as soon as they learn it 😉

  3. How easy or difficult was it to find three people to interview? If it was easy, how did you do it? If it was difficult, what roadblocks came up? How did you solve those roadblocks?
    OK, this one finally put a pretty good roadblock on me! I read over the chapter a couple days ago and let it sink in or I slept on it as you say. I found myself digging my heels into the dirt, saying Whoa! I don’t know about this! Asking three people… I didn’t really realize why I was doing this until after I listened to your little blog talk tape that I just listen to. What I got out of that was that fear, feAR, FEAR! Has been controlling me and not letting me live the full and happy life that I deserve by doing the things I love. All of the old “what if’s” popped up, a million and one of them and they all had to do with self-worth. As to the question of how to solve those roadblocks, just meeting them head on realizing, yes, I am worth every bit as much as anybody else is and I can do it in my own unique way just as well as anyone else out there can. Plus learning as much as I can out of this class to help me keep improving my self-worth will bash down all of those roadblocks I know! 🙂

    1. Hmmm! Seems that sneaky analyzer is working overtime to keep your explorer at bay? True? Have you noticed Cheryl once you allow your explorer to say with glee, “what if there’s no what if’s?” that ol analyze runs screaming into the wind! 🙂

  4. What path listed in Exercise 11 are you on? Path A: “I love what I do and want to take it to the next level.” and get paid what I am worth for doing what I love most. Lately, I have been experiencing it this way.. “Hey, if this is what I love to do, then why am I struggling to pay my rent! WTF!” This Ch. 3 exploration is just what I need right now.

  5. What ways do you measure worth?

    I measure my worth by my ability to feed myself and not be a bitch to some bullshit cause, organization or ideology that acts like they are helping people but are really part of the problem.

    Do such measurements help or hurt your ability to do what you love doing?

    I am unsure

    I started doing what I love to do when I was 12 despite what ever anyone else told me.

    In a nut shell lets say I learned that most of the adults were BS. I grew up in
    one of the richest per capita school systems. You know the type everybody went to
    church and then went to get hookers on the weekends.
    The Church held casino night where they gave away 6 pks of beers as prizes.

    I was yup 12 the biggest challenge for me was to get 10 cases home with out a car.

    I couldn’t drink all that beer so I would sell it to the kids who couldn’t make it to church.

    Ahh What a wonderful explorer I am no judgement and pure profit!

    My Dad schooled me about these ideologies and the people whom tend
    to be captured in this reality. Because these people were his best customers.

    I knew that the main stream mentality for me was totally for lack of a better work F***ED

    At the time the only way I was able to realize this is by looking at the peoples lives and going I am not going to think or look like that when I am 50. I am not going to eat what they eat, drink what they are drinking ,work where they work etc. It took years to shed myself of this. Sure I check out the vibration time and again.
