50 Days in the Life of a Mid Life Business Mentee - Day 3

 The student is ready…


When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars

This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius.


Don’t worry I haven’t gone all hippy on you. These words came to me as I pondered the way my life seems to go sometimes.  I’ve been thinking about the lyrics and chewing on the idea that although the song is about an astrological age that is imminent it could also be talking about synchronicity and timing in our day to day lives.

Th Law of Attraction is the idea that what you focus on is what manifests in your life. If you focus on good things, you will attract good and if you focus on negativity then you will only attract negative things.

So when I look at those lyrics it feels like they are saying

When you are in the right place, at the right time with the right intention and doing the right thing then all your actions will be done in a peaceful and loving way. Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t mean life will be necessarily smooth sailing, but I think it means that when you’re in flow with life, with God, with the Universe (however you put it) then you take things more in your stride.  Problems become challenges and fear is replaced by love as a motivation.

And in that frame of mind, you attract the things and people that can help you achieve whatever it is you want to achieve.


I’ve found that to be so in my life, in the past couple of years.


 I think back to the days I was employed and a couple of jobs in particular that I didn’t enjoy. And I remember how, in desperation I would apply for other jobs and how it was always down to me and another, and how the other person would get the job. Probably because I was going for the wrong jobs in the wrong frame of mind,

stinking of desperation.


And I look at my life in recent times, since I started The New 5ifty and I marvel at how each time I get to a point where I need some help or assistance or to add someone or something to my ‘team’. The right person, the right teacher, the right coach comes along – just at the right time.

{The right clients too.}

I’ve been experimenting with Facebook; doing videos and posting adverts. In fact, I had hoped Facebook would be my main marketing tool for a seminar I just did in Lagos, but there was something I was doing wrong. I knew I needed some help with converting interest into clients. I tried one online course which was so cheap it was almost free but it seemed to be fraught with technical problems and looks like it’s died a death.


And then last week I found something else.

I’m really excited.

I’m excited because each time this has happened I’ve had amazing results. The journey has been challenging but each time I need it the right ‘teacher’ has come along to guide me on my way, show me what to do, ready to pick me up should I fall.

(Also the sun was shining.)

I share these thoughts with you because today I had an initial meeting with a view to starting with these new ‘teachers’ in the next week or so.

The more I let go and trust, the more I attract what I need in any given time.

Could this be my age of Aquarius?
