I’ve been in my home country of Slovenia for about a month and a half now. This is the most I’ve been here in one stretch in the last 6 or so years. It’s really great here and even though I didn’t think like that before, I do now – I love my country.
Even more than the country itself in all its cute tinyness, I love the people here. The first and foremost, my family. And then all my friends from the various social circles, an old lover, all the acquaintances, and some great and lovely people I met for the first time, even if only briefly.
When I’m thinking about all this, it makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. It makes me feel safe, and loved, and like I matter. And also a little bit nostalgic – because I feel it’s time to leave again. The Call to Adventure is drawing me, and yet again I will answer. Let me explain.
This picture was made at the top of a lovely hotel’s terrace, during a friend’s wedding. What a great day that was… At the entrance to the hotel, there was a small blackboard with a little sailboat drawn and a quote “A ship in harbour is safe but that is not what ships are built for.”
I feel a little bit like that ship. It’s really great being in a harbor, but it’s not what I was built for.
Mission, vision, ambition… The Path. Similar to the author D. Deida in “The Way of the Superior Man” I feel that the Path is the most important thing to follow for any man. I can clearly see that as fun and warm and amazing as socializing is, it also takes away from my focus, from my Path.
For the last few years, my Path has pretty much been creating, managing, and driving forward Hustler Marketing. And let me tell you, we’ve only just started = ) With such a team, mentors and financial stability at our back, there is little we can’t do.
Now, will Hustler Marketing or my involvement in it last forever? Probably not. Nothing is eternal, as Goenka would have said. And deep inside I feel that there are many more important ventures inside of me. Will they all be business? Will it be charity, politics? Who knows. However, right now, I am b00lz deep in Hustler Marketing and loving every second of it.
So dear friends. Do not think I wouldn’t like to spend more time with you. I would. I’d really like that very much. And I feel so honoured and grateful that you’d like that too. But I cannot be true to you if I am not true to myself first. And deep inside, I know this without a doubt. Adventure is calling and I have to answer.
New magical places to see, new amazing people to connect with. Bravely facing and even thriving while attacking all the future obstacles. And sharing with the people around me, collaborative effort for the success of many. And to encourage and guide those that are also on the Path…
So Slovenia and Slovenians, thank you very much. I’ll keep you in my heart, and I’ll come back to visit. But now I have to go.
P.S. Did you ever hear the Call? What happened when you did/didn’t answer? I know opening up is scary – but it’s also liberating, so share if you feel like it. It’s one of the reasons I am writing these posts = )
