I began a new journey about a month ago, and I couldn’t be more excited. I’m a project manager and trainer of a brand new service excellence training program and also the head facilitator to a bunch of excellent and brilliant people on “customer service.” This role is not only exciting; however, it also gives me the flexibility to focus on my business. It’s a perfect world of variety, flexibility, and growth. In this role, I have the honor to work with a team that is highly educated, skilled, talented and supportive. I never thought that my life today was possible even a year ago. Let’s just say I’ve done a lot of internal work and yes, it was HARD.
I am experiencing new possibilities, and because of it, I began to think about the time we have today. Even though I am relatively “young” to people who are obviously older in years than me, I can be FAR more productive than I am right now. You see the thing is, we never truly know how long we have in this mind, body, and spirit. Many of us are under the assumption that we have until the end of time, and we will live a normal lifespan of approximatively eighty years old. The reality is, we just don’t know. Now that I am working with people who are far more motivated with their careers than teams I’ve previously worked with, it made me reflect on my life and the choices I made up until now. I don’t want to wait until I’m a certain age to be making a sufficient income to thrive and work even harder than I am now. It doesn’t make sense to me. It made sense when I first started working in corporate and then I started waking up to consciousness. Moving up that corporate ladder was a reality I no longer wanted to participate in.
My experience is that there are plenty of people wasting time and I truly mean it when I say that. I see them waiting for something better to come along or waiting for their partners to buy them a house or waiting to take a leap of faith into a new opportunity that might change their current circumstances. Please keep in mind these are people who have the means and conditions to change with little to no limitations. One thing they do not realize is that they are not taking responsibility for their lives because they are afraid. Settling becomes their new way of life because shooting for the moon is too hard. Shooting for the moon seems impossible and why rock the boat when you can have what’s already in front of you? Fear is an ugly place to be in, and every one of us experiences it. We are meant to create. Fear is something that may have served us when we were younger and couldn’t defend ourselves, but, now as adults we have the skills and consciousness to make better decisions and use our intuition. Try different things in your life that make you uncomfortable. Never showed up to a party by yourself? Try it. Never volunteered at a non-profit because you didn’t have the “time”? Do it. Feeling a bit too comfortable with your situation and convincing yourself you are “happy”… Reach out to me for that one 😉
All we have is today because we do not know what tomorrow will bring. Find your purpose and do at least one thing each day to get yourself there. Dream, vision, raise your vibrational frequency by taking care of yourself and surround yourself with people who have a higher standard. Play a bigger game because you can. Playing this type of game is not reserved for people who you think are better than you. You are the only person in this world with your point of view, talent, strength, experience, skill and story. Your past does NOT define you and all the people you once knew, and the choices you made do not dictate who you are TODAY. That is the beauty of our wonderful world and universe because yesterday is gone and we will never get it back. That’s not to say all is forgotten.
I want to leave you with this, stop wasting time doing the same things you’ve also always done because it’s comfortable and you think you have everything you’ve always wanted. Almost all of us were told the story, “this is how you should live your life.” It doesn’t have to be that way, and it can be any which way you want. The thing you have to prepare yourself for is not caring what other people think because taking on something different will freak people out.
Get out there and go after what and who you want to be around. Help the people you want to help. Let go of people who bring you down, don’t support you, and gossip behind your back because they do not matter. I honestly thought my life at some point was the way life was supposed to be and let me tell you, it wasn’t good. The people I surrounded myself made me think that they were the only ones who could be my friends in this world and not only until I spread my wings and met some pretty amazing people in my life did things change. If you’re with someone, and you don’t want the same things (i.e. white picket fence and two kids in approximately two years) or don’t have the same values, please tell them that and move on. They deserve to find someone who lights their fire and who will commit to them the way they’ve already dreamed. So do you. If you think by being with them is not hurting them because you aren’t ending the relationship, you’re wrong. You are already hurting them because you still need to let go of that relationship and your soul wants something different. If you want to start the process of changing in the now in your work, life, and relationships, please send me an email, and we will talk.
