Today I am reaching from Norway to Atlanta, Georgia, USA.
Hello Otis and Evelyn!
Evelyn and Otis Jackson are a couple of rebels on a mission to shake you up, wake you up and help you finally make the switch from simply existing to living a life you love.
So Otis and Evelyn where does your story begin…
0:53 Their story TOGETHER begins when they _________ in college/university in West Haven, Connecticut.
1:07 Evelyn back then was PRETTY CLOSED OFF, not much ________________ she says. Because she had a pretty rough upbringing.
1:19 She grew up in a house full of DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, her days were spent full of fear and she was scared all the time listening to constant _______________ between her parents.
1:57 Evelyn grew up FEELING UNWORTHY, she grew up feeling _____________ and alone so she developed a very thick skin.
2:09 To PROTECT HERSELF because she was _________ so much by those that she loved. So she had zero interest in love, relationship and marriage.
2:29 So when she met Otis her _________ WAS COMPLETELY UP. This charming, handsome guy changed it all for her.
2:51 Did Otis NEED A HELMET to protect himself from bumping into such a wall? No because he is a born __________ taker, which has allowed him to be carefree his whole life.
3:13 He GIVES THE CREDIT to his mom. She gave him the __________ light to just be himself 100%. He grew up in a very support household, exactly the opposite of Evelyn’s experience.
3:49 Otis lives MOMENT TO MOMENT TO MOMENT, so he doesn’t worry about what happened yesterday.
3:57 The MOMENT HE FIRST SAW Evelyn he saw a pretty young lady and said to himself, “I am interested in her.” He was just being himself. He had no sense of breaking any walls down.
4:29 Evelyn has come to understand that SHE IS AN EMPATH so she could __________ his energy which was so pure and allowing. Which slowly brought down her walls and she fell in love with this dude!
5:31 Otis was a financial analyst yet when things get routine he’s done with it. School for him was ________ so he WENT THAT ROUTE of numbers. Yet he is also a people person.
6:27 He then BEGAN TEACHING he calls it a _______________ he doesn’t go to work, he goes to play. It isn’t work when you love what you do.
6:37 DO WHAT YOU LOVE is part of their ______________ . So that empowered Otis to “Jump” from a career that was stable and well providing to being a teacher. Teachers in the U.S. don’t get paid very much.
7:03 Evelyn had a SIMILAR EXPERIENCE to Otis. She found herself “empty” with ________________ of being a regional vice president, traveling, corporate car, Amex card and making six figures.
7:33 She started QUESTIONING EVERYTHING, even Otis asking her, “Why are you doing this”? It took a few years for Otis’s words to sink in and she began to ask herself, “Why am I really doing this, and who am I really doing this for”?
8:13 She felt a NEED TO SUCCEED to get her mom out of the abusive situation that she was in with Evelyn’s dad. “I needed to make _________ so I could get my mom out of the abusive situation.
9:43 The URGE TO MAKE A CHANGE was upon her. It took years for her to really __________ and decide, “I don’t know what’s on the other side, and I can’t see around the corner but it’s time now to make a change.
10:31 Her old rule was “You need to be able to see what’s on the other side, because everything needs to be planned out or else…” She was IN HER HEAD and she wasn’t in her heart. Which was telling her what to do.
10:43 Finally she had to be placed in a position where either she would get _________ _______ or she would need to take a pay cut. It was GOD’S WAY of kinda KICKING HER IN THE BUTT so she would leave.
11:01 She was scared yet she TRUSTED IN GOD and jumped because of that trust. She finally came to that place of _________ and then she realised that Otis always had that level trust and walked his path.
11:23 Evelyn can recognise now that she ALWAYS WORRIED and Otis does not, so they are like the Yin and the ________ in that way.
11:51 Evelyn’s inspiration then was to turn on her phone record and document. She documented the first 30 Days which can be found at their blog. Because she wanted people to see WHAT HAPPENS after you jump.
12:15 What happens after you say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH I can no longer simply _________ I have to live my life.
14:19 ENCOURAGEMENT, because Otis wanted to make sure that they were not just husband and wife, they are also best ___________ .
14:57 Now Evelyn doesn’t have to SEE AROUND THE CORNER anymore, she just takes the __________ because once she takes the corner whatever is going to be will be right there, don’t worry about it.
15:11 You can get _______________ up a little bit because it is not easy but life has a way of GIVING YOU THE NEXT STEP.
20:01 It’s important when IMPLEMENTING SYSTEMS that you find one that fits your _______________ , fits your lifestyle, fits what you are about and fits what you are evolving to be. Make sure that the system fits you and what you are truly about.
22:35 LOOK BEYOND the immediate need to seek financial gain right away because there is a level of _________ that you need to put in. Because nothing comes as easy as we would like. Learn, implement and give a system its due time to work for you.
22:59 You can’t see around the corner so you have to TURN THE CORNER. Enjoy the ____________ turn the corner and then see what is out there, adjusting and then making ready for the next corner.
25:17 THERE IS A SWITCH that happens, you may or may not recognise it. Yet there has to be a switch, and when that little switch happens you start to see life differently because…
25:35 That’s the moment when you start to allow for ___________ to come into your life. It’s the moment when you are awake long enough to see the little hints that the universe gives you, the BREAD CRUMBS of the path that you are traveling.
25:59 You are not always GOING TO GET WHAT YOU ASK if you are not ____________ . You’ll get what you need when you absolutely need it.
30:13 As much as possible OPERATING AS A COUPLE you want to get your partner on board, because you need to _________ as a couple. Be sure that you are growing together as a unit.
33:33 Evelyn’s resentment toward her father came to a point of having to be LET GO because it was blocking her from experiencing her NEXT LEVEL OF GROWTH. Here Evelyn get emotional sharing how her conversation with her father played out…
35:37 DIG DEEP IN YOURSELF and explore your ________ because we all have a level of “I wish that wouldn’t have happened to me”. Playing V.P.R. Explore that and make it your mission to resolve that.
36:07 Your GREATEST BLESSING ________ on the other side of forgiveness.
