I have to admit. I was sort of creeped out. SO much water. I felt it taking the subway to Brookyn to eat at St Anselm’s, just knowing water was pressing in from all sides. This was a thousand times more. Looking out the window was easy. Clouds and more clouds. But looking at the screen that very clearly showed the plane over nothing but water for as far as the eye could see, well, it creeped me out.
I know. I’ve been preaching out drinking water, about the positive effects of water in the body, but here’s the thing. I like it in my product and I like it in my tummy, not floating under me. And I noticed that the only two flotation devices were situated at the far ends of the plane Here I was sitting plumb in the middle. In case of an emergency, both slippery little rafts would be full long before I got to the door.
Here’s the thing about fear. You control it, not the other way around. So here I am, writing notes for Leadership Camp, working on my blog, eyes off the screen, ignoring the turbulence. I find it’s the same all through life. Taking a risk, starting a business. You control life, not the other way around. Feel free to join me. It’s a thrill a minute around here, 35,000 feet in the air.
