I know the sinking feeling of not being where my soul, spirit, psyche, or Higher Self desires to be. I have sat in front of a personal computer as a cubicle dweller, desk jockey, manager, director, and vice president, and in each of these positions, I have felt deeply unfulfilled. Why is this? I’ll tell you why. It’s because you are living per someone else’s expectations, contributing to someone else’s vision, building someone else’s empire without any indication that any of these pursuits align with your own destiny, your own purpose.
This is a painful place to be, when your very essence is languishing like a fish out of water, beached on the shores of someone else’s dream.
You may be asking, “Well, what do I do now?”
Let me tell you what I did, based on years of leadership responsibilities and my own personal experience. I am a firm believer in plans and systems. Indeed, I am a bit of a systems nerd. I will show you how addressing the toxic red flags fits into the bigger picture. To detox your circle and activate your destiny, you must move from inspiration to manifestation.
DETOX YOUR CIRCLE
After doing over 15 years hard time in a cubicle or office, you and your laptop have found Nirvana at the Starbucks around the corner. Mercifully, the career is over, the kids are gone. But now there is nothing left to distract you from the elephant in the room.
You stare at your significant other with the most disconcerting doubts about whether the relationship has run its natural course. You own up to your part in friendships that have become more like placeholders. Years of meaningless, if tenuous connection, have left you hollow.
DETOX YOUR CIRCLE establishes the premise for removing 13 toxic elements — people, self-sabotaging behaviors, baggage, and meaningless rituals, to name a few — and demonstrates how decluttering can trigger a very powerful clarity and resonance. Magically, you’ll summon the right people, activities, and passions that illuminate an enlightened path to purpose and meaning.
The book will appeal to thoughtful readers who seek practical tools for simplifying a life that has become far too complicated. If you like prescriptive nonfiction in the style of Daniel H. Pink (When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing), Seth Godin (Linchpin), and Michael Hyatt (Your Best Year Ever), you have arrived. When we detox our Rolodex, our true nature and essence attract more of who we are. What ensues is a resonance that sets the tone and cosmic parameters for fulfilling destiny.
