Today marks two years since my last day at my 9-5 job. It was a scary decision at the time, and the last two years have been more challenging, rewarding and exciting than I could ever have imagined. It will forever be one of the best decisions I ever make. It was the day I chose to bet on myself.
I shared my in-depth reflections on my biggest lesson in this week’s podcast episode (below).
If I could go back and tell myself anything, it would be to fall in love with the process and not focus on the destination or current goal I’m pursuing quite so much. For each of us, we always have three choices with how we handle the pursuit of our goal (whether that’s a $10k month, quitting our 9-5 job, launching a program, etc.):
Choice 1- Struggle through inevitable obstacles. Allow the rejection from a sale, the stress of finances, the fear of what others think, the self-doubt when you’re tired (I’ve heard all of these from entrepreneurs!) dictate your process and your journey on your way to success.
Choice 2- Ignore the negativity. Decide that obstacles are inevitable and, in fact, they are preparing you to be better suited for the success you’re pursuing thanks to these obstacles. Think of having a child! You accept pregnancy as preparing you to birth it, not denying that you want to go through all that comes with pregnancy.
*Bonus tip- THIS is how you bring your vision to life. This is the key.*
Choice 3- Don’t pursue it at all. You don’t have to put yourself through a process if the end goal isn’t worth it to you. This is YOUR life and you get to decide what’s actually worth it to you.
