Being Tested

YouTube video from ballisticarts

I seem to get tested after undertaking major workshops and the like. A few weeks ago, I attended a somewhat intensive weekend workshop based on business, in particular on earning income and increasing money flow.

My test occurred on my way home from that particular workshop. I met a former classmate and friend of mine whom I hadn’t seen in awhile. The opportunity to present my new business presented itself in that moment. How easy and convenient, right?

How was I being in that moment? What did I do/say? Well, instead of asking questions (which is generally recommended and in particular with this healing business), I only asked one that was very generic rather than find out where she was at and base my questioning around that!

Oh did I feel like a fool afterwards though she might not have noticed, but I sure did! Silly me! (A 30-second elevator pitch comes in handy in moments like this!)

Around the same time, a bus passed by with a huge ad on its side: “Good Money™ can help you get to a better place.” This is VanCity’s new campaign mainly in red and gold (colours chosen most likely to denote richness).

Two thoughts immediately came to mind upon viewing that: an increase in pay through a new work/career opportunity and a new home. Both have been on my mind or rather in the back of my mind lately.

Continuing down this path of thinking, what opportunities can open up and present themselves to me with more money? Hmmm...

How do you get tested? And how do you handle it?

  1. p.s. I attempted to take a photo of the ad on the bus, but it was too late. I just found this video and it's SO perfect for my blog posting! :)
