Having to chose between changing career paths or building an online brand, I was at a crossroad. Was I willing to give up the very thing I loved? Working with others and helping them live a healthier life?
Living in Virginia with my family mainly being a “stay at home mom, part time business owner” I knew I needed more in my life and career. And this doesn’t mean a sugar daddy on the side, although as long as he was rich I doubt my husband would care. (Just kidding!)
But the problem is that I didn’t know if had had it in me to follow through because this is my biggest flaw. I start but rarely finish. Why? Afraid mostly, afraid of failing. I am so damn competitive I didn’t want to fail. What’s funny is that I always tell my kids failure is great, it’s how you learn. You must fail in order to grow! But I guess the rule didn’t apply to me. (Just kidding)
I tried program development, no luck, I looked into brick and mortar, huge gamble. I attempted the online business by myself and failed.
It wasn’t until after my mom’s passing that I realized it was now or never. I had to make a change. She said I missed my calling, I should have been in TV. hahah (she was biased)
Life is too short to take it for granted. Life is too short for excuses and no follow through! If you have a fire in your belly, you must go after it. Soon after her passing I signed up for the IDEA Conference with the hopes I would hear a lecture that would ignite the fire again. And sure enough, there was and I hired a coach. And here I am a few months into the program, following through.
Can you relate to any of this? Do you have a dream but seem to have a roadblock that stops you? (Mine was follow-through) Once you acknowledge the roadblock you can attack it and get it pushed aside. Write your daily goals down, what needs to be accomplished. So many of you have goals of weight loss. What is it that is stopping you?
Here are a few assignments/questions I give my clients on their 7 Day Challenge :
What are my 3 goals today : (doesn’t have to be fitness related)
What will I do for myself today?
What are my roadblocks and how will I stay on track?
Look back at my goals, did I achieve them? If so, thats great! If not, why? What is in my way and what can I do to achieve them?
Try it out for a week and watch yourself reach your goals!!
Have a great week,
