In the 80’s I was teenager, and I followed my Bliss by Break dancing
and Pop Locking.  This is a form of dance that evolved out of Hip Hop
culture.  I remember how much I loved breaking and popping.  I did it
every day of my life.  I practiced breaking and popping before school,
during school, and after school.  This is what I thought about all day
long.  I believed that I would grow up and do this professionally.  

I remember one time when I was in 8th grade – walking through the
hallways.  A kid came up to me and challenged me to dance against
him.  (In Popping and Breaking, there were impromptu dance
competitions that just happened).  I was so nervous, because I had
never competed like this before, and I wasn’t sure I was ready.  I knew I
was good, but I still felt afraid.  The kid kept challenging me, so I put my
books down and started dancing.  It seemed like the whole school was
there.  I could hear the crowd cheering and making sounds as I made
my moves.  It was exhilarating.  I loved the feeling of manipulating and
controlling my body.  I enjoyed this so much that it didn’t really matter to
me if anyone else was watching.  I had a pure love and joy for the
expression of myself through movement.  I didn’t really know it then, but
I was following my bliss.

In my 20’s it was basketball.  Like breaking and popping, I spent all my
free time practicing my dribbling, shooting, and ball handling skills.  
There was nothing more fun to me then to practice my moves and
perfect them, and then to test them out in games.  I loved the feeling of
driving past someone and scoring.  

I remember being on an intramural basketball team and we were
playing in a championship game.  There was a few minutes left and we
needed a score to keep the lead.  One of my teammates past me the
ball and I drove to the hoop and jumped in the air.  A defender from the
other team slammed into me and knocked me to the ground and as I
was falling I managed to throw the ball up towards the hoop and it went
in.   The whistle blew and the ref called a foul on the other team.  I went
to the free throw line, hit the shot, and we won the game.   I received a
little trophy that I’ve treasured for years.  Hey, it wasn’t the NCAA
tournament, but I was following my bliss and doing what I loved.

Now I’m in my 30’s and for the past 7 years I’ve been a Life Coach and
a Spiritual Counselor.  I assist people in moving through mental and
emotional blocks and towards getting what they really want.  Like
popping & breaking, and basketball – I spend my time improving
myself by reading books, listening to tapes, attending workshops and
sharing my knowledge with others to assist them in achieving their
dreams.  This brings me great joy.

I had a client who I was having lunch with.  He was a part time actor.  I
asked him “What do you really, really want?”  He said, “I want to be a full
time actor.”  I said, “Great, what’s stopping you from doing it?”  And for
the next few hours he gave me a list of mental and emotional blocks
that was preventing him from living his dream.  I assisted him in
processing through these blocks – one by one – until he was clear.  At
the end of that hour, I will never forget the look in his eyes.  He said, “I
know what I’m going to do now.”  I said, “What?”  He said, “I’m going to
quit my job and become a full time actor.”  I said, “Do you have a
plan?”  He said “no” I said, “let’s make one, so you a clear direction.”  
We made up an action plan.  Sure enough, in the next 3 months he was
able to quit his job, and move into acting full time.  He is now a
successful – full time – working actor in Hollywood.  He’s been in
movies, TV shows, and commercials.  And I have to say that when I see
him on TV, I get chills and a tremendous feeling of joy because I know
that I had something to do with his success.  His success is my
success.  And this is how I’ve been following my bliss today in my
current life.
