OK – I know there’s a lot of talk about manifesting what we want, putting positive thoughts out there and what we want will come to fruition…well, those things may HELP but they are not the things that are going to get you what your goals or dreams are…
Why am I telling you this? Simple, I wanted to share what I have learned, and what I KNOW to be true. You don’t ever get anything in this life unless you work hard for it. Now that doesn’t mean that good things can’t come to you along the way, but that energy that you create as you’re working for your dreams…that’s where I believe that the magic is made. There are lots of ways to pursue your dreams…and yes there are people that seem to, from the outside looking in, have amazing things happen to them…but here’s what I can tell you about that:
In a nutshell, we owe it to ourselves to be the best we can possibly be…NO MATTER WHAT! We are 100% in control of whether we put in the effort to achieve our dreams, and we can decide whether or not we let our life run us or if we run our lives.
I made a decision about 1 1/2 years ago to completely change my life. I had been working in the same industry for 20 years, and while I was making a really good living, it wasn’t fulfilling my need for contribution, my need for positivity and it most definitely was not giving me the freedom to travel and spend time with those I love like I wanted it to. It was a tough decision for me to make because I had to give up a significant piece of our monthly incomings, but once I made it I felt peace and calm…and I just knew it was the right thing to do.
I’m definitely not saying that everything on the other side of that decision is rosy because of course I had to learn something I didn’t already know, I basically reinvented myself…and at first it felt like I wasn’t contributing to the business or our family. I am happy to report that after almost a year of working in our coaching business, I am now feeling secure in what I am doing, I love interacting with our clients at events, nurturing relationships, creating friendships, and most importantly…traveling and finding joy in my life again.
We are in this life to grow ourselves into the best versions of ourselves that we can be…and the only way to do that is to follow our heart and dreams – especially if it means getting outside of our comfort zones….
I hope that when you are faced with a decision to follow your dreams that you jump at the chance…I know I would do it over again in a heart beat!
Happy Wednesday to you…
