Once upon a time, there was a very successful businessman named Jason. He had amassed an incredible fortune. He had all the worldly treasures that anyone would ever want. He had the picture-perfect family. He dressed impeccably, he traveled to far off lands, he shook hands with amazing individuals, but all the while he was miserable. He loathed his demanding schedule and somewhere along the way he had lost his passion for life. He admired others who had mastered their inner fire; who fanned the flames of possibilities in their lives. At this point in his career he had become a robot, a servant to the necessity of living rather than the joys of life. He was restless in these days of his life.
As he was walking down the street one day, a younger man approached him and handed him a business card. “Sir, I couldn’t help but notice you weren’t smiling, and I always think we have lots to smile about. Don’t you?”
Jason couldn’t help but snicker. As he looked down at the card it said GROW Coaching and as he flipped over the back of the card he saw the man’s contact information Patrick Smith, Transpersonal Life Coach. His tag line read, “What is your dream for this lifetime?”
Jason stuffed Patrick’s card into his pocket and continued walking down the street to his meeting. As he sat in his business meeting he was distracted by his most recent encounter. Who was this man who had randomly bumped into him on the street, but more importantly why was he thinking about him? He leaned into the curiosity he felt and chuckled.
Jason went on about his life and about two months later as he was walking down the street he again randomly bumped into Patrick. Patrick met him with an incredible smile. “Good to see you again Jason. I wondered when I would run into you again!”
