Can you believe we are already half way through the 12 Days of Yule? Time has quickly flown, but the daily insight that many of you are sharing with me has been intense, enlightening, and challenging. As they say in the fitness industry – no pain, no gain! That is true with self-discovery as well.
My friend and fellow candle maker Dorothy Morrison has a candle in her Wicked Witch Mojo line called Gimme Gumption. It is one of my favorite candles out of her line! Why? It breaks away the fears that are plaguing us in our lives and provides us with the courage to proceed in the future. Recently, during my radio show, Dorothy appeared as a guest and told Jacki Smith and I that if you use Gimme Gumption with Tornado Ally and Poof, you can pretty much remove any form of addiction or self-defeating behaviors you may have in your life.
So, what is gumption? This is what Mr. Webster has to say:
initiative; aggressiveness; resourcefulness: With his gumption he’ll make a success of himself.
courage; spunk; guts: It takes gumption to quit a high-paying job.
common sense; shrewdness.
In essence, gumption is that natural resourcefulness that we all have within us. It is our inner magic! We can use gumption, whenever all else fails. All it takes is a little curiousness to figure out exactly where our gumption is. When we combine honor and integrity with gumption – we have a recipe for success!
Shuffle your deck thoroughly. Fan the cards out in front of you and ask the cards, “What is my gumption?” Draw your card from the deck.
The card I drew is the Ace of Coins
This did not surprise me at all. The one thing that I know how to do well is make money. I know business, marketing, and I know how to utilize these things to the best of my ability. Furthermore, whenever I am funky, blue, down, or going through a crisis the area that I turn to is work. It is my comfort zone.
What card did you pull?
