A year ago I took a leap.
I was looking for something but I didn’t know what it was. I felt a calling to do something more, to create more, to be more than I was. I felt I had been holding myself back.
At the time I was seeing ads for Marie Forleo’s B-School everywhere I looked. It was on Facebook and Twitter. All my favorite authors and who’s-who in the spiritual and self development world were offering bonuses to sign up. I think it was the last day to register and I took the dive. I signed up. At the time, it was the most I had spent on myself ever, outside of college. I immediately felt guilty. Who was I to spend that kind of money on myself? I didn’t even know what I was going to do with the information but I felt it was an investment in myself.
All through the eight week course I struggled to figure out my plan. What was I going to do with the new knowledge? How was I going to use what I was learning and incorporate it into my own life? I didn’t have my own business and really wasn’t looking to start one anytime soon.
So I did what lots of students do. I dropped out.
I told myself I would catch up on the work another time, over the summer. Well that never happened. But what did happen was I started to look around at other opportunities to grow. I started opening myself up to other possibilities and to embrace some new ventures. That was when I discovered Mentor Masterclass and started down the path to become a life coach.
Over the past six months I have developed my own programs and begun to lead workshops and trainings. I am being sought after as a thought leader and a guide. I never dreamed I would be doing what I am today.
And that was the problem. I never dreamed.
I stayed small. I played it safe. But by playing it safe and staying small I was denying myself the opportunity to grow and expand. It is only in reaching for the stars can we discover what’s on the horizon.
Fast forward to today and I am more excited for B-School than ever! With a renewed commitment I am ready to start dreaming big, to start putting into place the life of my dreams.
