Maybe This Is The Wrong Thing To Write Today

by Paul Castain on June 24, 2013

I felt a need to say something today but I was truly at a loss.

I din’t know what to write for once.

If it were any other day, I would have just shut my mouth but it isn’t . . .

Today I turned 48 and I knew I had something to say and was pissed that I didn’t know how to say it.

I tried walking away from it but the urgency to say it was too great but . . .

Still the words wouldn’t come to me.

Then it came to me in it’s simplest form . . .

Perhaps a “thank you” is in order!

I want to thank you for reading my blog and thank the many people who allowed me to transition my dream of doing what I love into a full time business.

I am now 2 1/2 years into Castain Training Systems and my business has exploded beyond anything I could have imagined.

I now wake up each morning knowing that for once “someday” is actually TODAY and . . .

I have you to thank for that.

So, I guess the burning feeling I had to say something today wasn’t as eloquent as I had hoped but . . .

Please understand, it needed to be said!

Thank you all for helping me fulfill my dream!

    Happy Birthday Paul! I can speak on behalf of your massive legion of followers and flip it around and say “thank you”! You inspire us each day with your passion and willingness to help others, and that is appreciated more than you know. You are a breath of fresh air in the very crowded sales and leadership space, and are truly one of a kind. Keep rockin’, keep smiling and as Gary V once said, keep “Crushing It” Have an awesome day my friend!

  • Franciszek Pozarzycki

    Paul, let me paraphrase for you one of the famous quotes of A.Einstein’s – “When You sit with a nice girl for two hours, it seems like two minutes; when you sit on a hot stove for two minutes, it seems like two hours. And that is relativity”

    Beyond those remarkable dates I appreciate your personal imput in what you try to express on blog, itunes and through groups while facilitate our discussions, it is well spend time.

    Perhaps, that is what makes people stick together and why they like to coming back. It is great to hear your program is also success on financial terms. Thank You for your support and Happy Birthday!
