Four months ago I was fired and it was one of the best things to happen to me.
Don’t get me wrong, I did not want to be fired, but the moment it happened a smile stretched across my face. Getting fired was an amazing opportunity to pursue the job of my plans and dreams.
One year ago I turned 40 and as I celebrated my decade birthday I reflected on my work and my life. Years ago I decided to start my own business by the time I turned 40. There I was, having reached this milestone birthday and all I had was a plan- the same plan I’d had for long time.
I’d taken small steps to my new life, including quitting my full-time job and getting a part-time job. I asked a local entrepreneur to be my mentor. I joined a mastermind group. All these steps amounted to, well, not much. I didn’t actually get my business started.
Turning 40 changed everything for me. Or perhaps it just changed everything in me. I was in a new decade of life and I was done playing by the rules. I made the choice to trust myself and believe anything is possible.
What would you do if you believed in yourself 100%? What would you accomplish if you trusted yourself completely?
These were the questions I asked myself in the months following my 40th birthday- right up until the day I got fired.
Getting fired wasn’t a pleasant experience, but it was a blessing. There were no more excuses, no barriers to turning my dreams into dos.
I launched my career & business coaching business four months ago. I work hard every day as an entrepreneur and I am grateful for every single day.
I wake up every morning excited to get to work. I’m learning new aspects of marketing, sales, and business management. I’m stretched every day.
I get to serve my clients every day, helping these courageous women stand up, stand out, and discover new opportunities in their work and their life. I love my work!
Now I’ll ask you. What would you do differently if you believed in yourself 100%? Where have you been given the opportunity to do something totally amazing in your life? Are you ready to stop dreaming and start doing?
