Two years ago, I was sitting at my desk at work and thought to myself…
Why am I still doing this to myself???
I understand your job may be different but for me, my job was filled with stress, anxiety and I lost all passion for it. The “glitz and glamor” of working as a designer in an ad agency was empty inside. I was frustrated, stuck, in debt and counting down until the weekend every day.
When I became an online fitness coach, I honestly had no idea at the time that it would be the catalyst to freedom for me. I was simply trying to be more accountable for my fitness goals and help others see that they too could reach theirs.
But that day in 2013…. right after an argument with my boss, I opened up my bank account and saw that I was consistently making more money with my hobby than what I was making being miserable at that desk.
I opened up Microsoft Word and typed my resignation letter – effective May 9, 2013.
I walked out of that door feeling excited, nervous, overjoyed and fearful all at once. It was a huge flying leap… one that I didn’t even tell my husband about until after I got to the car (ladies, I don’t recommend that lol!).
And here I am… two years later with ZERO regrets and now two additional businesses that are also thriving. Our life, marriage, finances and friendships are in totally different places than they once were. My husband has since been able to leave his full-time job as well and this afternoon as we took a break outside on the hammock all I could think was….
We did it.
We created the life we wanted for ourselves.
It wasn’t easy and trust me, not every day was sunshine and rainbows but when you want a change in your life bad enough, you push through the mud, no matter what.
That’s what I want to encourage you to go today… keep pushing!
Your goals may be completely different than ours but if there’s something you want to achieve in your life, you CAN do it.
You just have to be willing to take that first leap and never give up.
