“I’ve never been a morning person and it became all too apparent when I’d hear the sound of the alarm on my cell phone. Slowly, I’d crawl out of bed already hating the day. Being a routine person didn’t help matters. I knew my every move from one day to the next; shower, fuss with my hair, get dressed, pack lunch, then head out the door to face miles of traffic hoping no one had an accident on my route. If so, the three mile bridge I had to cross to get to the other side of town would become a parking lot. Once at work, I’d spend a miserable 8 hour shift that drained my energy, creativity, and life force. And everyday I'd think, "there has to be a better way…"
This is Who I Am!
I'm someone who had a hard time believing in herself. For so long I played it safe! Always taking a back seat.
Always living small.
After years of not living up to my full potential, I found myself merely existing.
Each day was like the one before - miserable.
After dealing with a health issue that resulted from stress and losing someone I loved dearly, I started seeing life differently. I realized that life wasn't about getting up everyday going to a job I hated.
Nor was it about living in fear or always being afraid of "what if."
We spend so much of our lives worrying about things that never happen. Sometimes we can't see what our lives are like, until we see it through the life of someone else.
Losing someone I loved taught me that life is about what I decide to make of it. It's not what life gives me, but what I decide to take from life.
No longer was I going to waste any more years of my life playing small. Nor was I going to just pay bills and die.
I finally made the decision to believe in myself enough to go after the life I desired and deserved!
I know the risks. I could lose everything. But, I believe in myself and the beauty of my dreams so much that I'm willing to do whatever it takes to live life on my own terms.
It's time for me to embrace my full potential.
I'll Never Forget the Moment I Decided to Take Control of My Life!
I awoke to the Steve Harvey morning show. Each morning Steve takes 15 minutes to bless his listeners with words of encouragement. That particular morning found me numb from the experience I'd had at work the day before. I knew I needed to get up and get ready for work, but I couldn't move.
Instead, I lay there listening to Steve. His motivational talk that morning was about taking a leap of faith. He used the metaphor of jumping off of a cliff knowing you were wearing a parachute and that it would open before you touched the ground.
However, on the way down you'd bump up against the side of the cliff. You'd get a little bruised and cut, but you'd be okay. He stated that one would never know how great they could be or how their life would turn out if they never jumped. I found myself crying and even more numb, but also empowered.
It was that day that I decided to jump! I got up from my bed, headed to my computer, logged into my work email and sent my letter of resignation via email to my manager. I never went back and I've never looked back!
Not everyone's story will be the same. You might be more methodical than me and plan your work escape. But you know, sometimes if we never make a move towards living the life we know we're meant to live, we never will.
I want to tell you today that you are great! Within you is the ability to do great things. I believe in you and it is my sincere desire to help you learn how to become an amazing internet marketer.
I want you to have a life and business you love! I want you to have more abundance in your life. I want you to have more time to spend with the people you love and gain financial freedom.
God has granted us the privilege of an amazing life, but it's up to us to trust in him and believe in all of his promises for our lives. It'll take a lot of hard work and effort, but trust me, it's all worth it!
I hope you'll join me on this journey to self-discovery and to living the life of your dreams. Join me and start embracing your full potential!
