Receiving emails from people globally is something I’m humbled by. Not only are the messages candid and sometimes confronting but so often they hold profound and brilliantly simple messages that I believe could help everyone who reads them.
Today’s email of the week is from a girl named Sally and her concept of helping yourself so that you can help others is a message I strongly believe in.
Thanks Sally for sharing!
“Thankyou for your amazing book. We are around the same age, both from Sydney and I used to have a list. The exhilaration of doing things on my ‘must do’ list was indescribable but unlike your list mine stopped because of the death of a loved one. I haven’t ticked anything off my list since my dad passed in 2010, however after our manager spoke of meeting you at our awards dinner earlier this week, I got my hands on your book and read it in two days. I now have a new perspective on how I should be looking at my list and am going to sit down with pen and paper and work out what will be my next big tick. I know you probably do not read these messages Seb, but just wanted to get my thoughts down and to put a big thankyou out in the universe for the person helping get my priorities straight and for a very long time my biggest priority was finding and being the best version if myself so I can give to others – it’s time to find that Sally again Xx”
Sally, I read all the messages!!
For all those reading who think they could do with spending a little time focusing on their values and passions, please don’t wait- follow in the footsteps of Sally and treat yourself this weekend. you never know, it could help you and those around you!
