“waffling between an unstoppable god complex and coldhearted self-sabotage”

After battling with a decidedly absurd, ridiculous, and unwelcome fever the past few days, I’ve decided enough is enough, and I’m going to be back to normal.

Which means today’s email is not from my feverish spirit, nor Alicia.

It’s from Yours Sorcerously.

And today I want to yammer about a question I posed to members of The Clandestine Round Table last week, which was:


Who here believes with a complete, utter, and borderline delusional amount of certainty that given time, consistency, and persistence you WILL accomplish your mission(s), and that the world you want to build will come to fruition?


If so, vunderbar.

If not, why not?


The majority of responses were to the tune of, 100% yes, with a few waffling between an unstoppable god complex and coldhearted self-sabotage.

Answers of which warmed my sorcerous heart to read.

I don’t swim in the “woo-woo” deep end, but I do believe that you must believe in your ability to accomplish and better your missions.

Because if you don’t (remember that nobody else is going to do it for you), what reason is there for what you want to happen, to happen?

Your belief in your mission is your responsibility.

As an example, here’s a glimpse inside one of my missions:

For over two years (and counting), I wanted to build a business that only requires me to write an email each day, and create an entertaining + useful newsletter each month, thus leaving me more than enough time to do whatever the hell I please.

Despite knowing the reality I wanted to create, it took time to figure out how to get there.

The unique value proposition for said newsletter evaded me for 18 months (which was the biggest sticking point).

But I never doubted or questioned the notion that I’d figure it out when the time came.

And here we are.

Admittedly, there’s still more growth to achieve before I can pass my email marketing clients along to a yet-to-be discovered protege, but, again, I have zero doubts that with time and repetition of effort, I’ll get there.

As for you…

If one of your missions involves building a low-stress, email-based business that enhances your life, the next edition of The Sorcerers Guild paper & ink newsletter is going to grab your hand and guide you through the process.
