So there I am… standing at the place of decision, fear, and ambiguity. On this side is certainty, comfort and familiarity. Sound familiar?
In 2012, I kept getting this message…
I finally chose to listen, and I was scared.
The decision I was faced with was leaving a company I was employed at for 11 years to pursue my own business, be my own boss, and fulfill my own dreams.
I walked to the edge, looked out in the fog and didn’t see the net. I pulled back, hesitant and wanted to just go back to what I knew. I had to push myself. In order to hold myself accountable to my goal I started telling people I was leaving. On the outside I declared it with such certainty, on the inside I was filled with such doubt.
I still wasn’t fully ready for the decision I was making but knew it was time. For about 6 weeks I had trouble breathing, convinced it was from a cold I just couldn’t kick I headed to the doctor. After a regimen of medicine and no results, I was clear it was my anxiety about this HUGE life decision .
On November 30th 2012, I walked to the edge, took a deep breath, and leapt! For several months my monkey mind reeked havoc on my decision. Convinced at times that the net wasn’t there, I wanted to pack it all in and go back to being someone’s employee, but I pushed through.
I just hit a huge milestone in my goals and dreams. After 8 months of leaving my job I have TRIPLED my weekly income. To give you a perspective, it took me 11 years, and I didn’t even double my income being an employee.
I share this personal story with you because my goal is helping people fulfill on their dreams. I look forward to helping you pursue what is important to you!
