Gift, Purpose, Dharma, everybody has something that makes them come alive. Something in which makes time stand still, something they can become fully immersed, something they wish they could share with the world; something they are in alignment with.
So, why don’t they do anything about it?
Maybe it’s too “out there”, maybe their family wouldn’t approve, or their spouse, or their parents, or their friend circle. So what is the solution to this way of living? Maybe it is to simply stay stuck and hope that one day things will change.
Hope is not a strategy.
What if, just maybe, you could take that thing you love to do more than anything else, monetize it, and lead a life of fulfillment, prosperity, happiness and joy?
What if you knew that it was actually very easy, and it came at the hands of simply changing the way you think?
Alignment Club is dedicated to helping you find alignment, step into your power and become the best version of yourself.
How did I get here?
Let me keep this short in saying that I have had a long-running obsession with fly fishing, and actually began working professionally in the fly fishing industry before I even graduated from high school. A few years ago I gave up on trying to fit the status quo and started working and living in alignment with what I felt called towards from one moment to the next.
That decision lead me to a level of life experience I did not even know possible.
Of course there have been some (plenty) mistakes made along the way, but it has ultimately allowed me to share what I love, get paid, see some incredible parts of the world, and get to meet clients that have become some of my closest friends. It has shown me that life is limitless if you are willing to make the leap.
As life has progressed, so did my personal growth, and I started to search deeply for a way to empower people to see beyond their current circumstances and understand that it is more than worth it to pursue your dreams.
I began to ask the question, how can I change people’s lives? How can I make a lasting impact during my time on earth?
Late one night, I was reading a book that suggested I print of Marianne Williamson’s poem titled Our Deepest Fear, and to read it each morning and evening.
I was getting ready to move houses, my life was in boxes and I was clueless as to which one held my printer. I Googled this poem on my phone and was very taken aback by the first line which read:
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measureMarianne Williamson
Did I dig through the mess of boxes to find my printer? No, though I went to bed with this opening line.
The next morning I met my clients, two older gentlemen from Oregon, at the lake. I am not a cattle prod, but I have been known to ask the question “so… do you like to read books?” from time to time.
In just a few moments I discovered that not only did both of my guests read, they had worked alongside some of my favourite authors and speakers in the world of personal development and spiritual growth.
As we entered their cabin for lunch, one of my clients by the name of Jim sat down and said “So, why don’t you share what you know with the world? There are people out there right now who would benefit from hearing your perspectives on life and work.”
He continued by saying “my teacher gave me this, and I have an extra copy. I would like for you to read this every day, I was in a state of shock as I read the following words that had been ringing in my ears since the night before:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure“
My heart accelerated as I realized I was reading “Our Deepest Fear” by Marianne Williamson, the exact poem I had procrastinated in reading the night before.
I could barely speak, and shortly after leaving their cabin I made a promise to myself. I made a promise that I would take this as a nudge, to find a way to empower people to discover their gifts, get over what people think, and to align with what they truly want.
This was the beginning of Alignment Club, a place for “ordinary” people to lift the veil and realize that “ordinary” is nothing more than a story that we create in our minds.
My vision is that Alignment Club will be a place people can turn when they need a little boost, a place where they will not be judged, and ultimately a platform to help people transform their lives beyond their wildest dreams.
Thank you for stopping by.
