I recently read a quote that has stuck with me over the last few weeks....
"Don't be afraid to give up the good, and go for the great."
When something is good, it's easy to get comfortable. When things become comfortable, it's easy to stay the same. When things stay the same, nothing changes. If nothing changes, nothing grows.
I've never been a person who finds comfort, in things staying the same. If something is too easy, I get bored.
I get enjoyment out of trying new things, just to see if I can do it. And when I master it, I move onto the next.
Being stuck, is the most uncomfortable feeling I think anyone can ever live with. I know because I've been there at least 100 times... stuck. Second guessing decisions, beating myself up about whatever, and not feeling good enough. Were all part of my daily routine. Sometimes the crazy in my head is SO LOUD, the only way to shut it up is to stop listening. And thats how things stay the same... stuck.
It wasn't until I started listening to those dreams, desires, and thoughts, that they started making sense. It wasn't until I said fuck it, why not me. That things started to become exciting with a side of scary AF!!
I've know my whole life I am supposed to be doing something big, something that serves other people. Because thats what serves me. I enjoy being with people who add value to my life, no matter what it is. But those people aren't going to beat down your door, you have to find them.
When I opened my own business, I attracted them.
I opened my own business a year ago and I was told by every business owner I talked too, and a business advisor I was working with. I would not be able to pay my bills for a year, and that I would be in the red for at least three. Was I prepared for that? No, not really. I don't WTF I'm doing.
But for me failing wasn't an option I gave myself. I have worked 12 -16 hours a day, 7 days a week for a year. And Not once have I come up short. And if I walked away today, I am not in debt.
I am not a genius, I am not business savvy. I didn't even graduate high school!!! (surprise)
I just figured out what people want, and gave it to them. In return, I get what I want.
Everyones wants, needs, dreams are different. But that shit's not just handed too you, it's up too you to figure out how to get it... And only the ones who want it bad enough, will do the work. But there is such a thing as wanting the outcome, but not wanting to do the work. ( been there) If thats the case, I suggest finding another outcome, you're willing to work for.
My business is about to change AGAIN... more on that later...
But my BIGGEST gain out of this entire experience, I think is the most important. I feel like I found myself. That person who's been tapping me on the shoulder for the past 20 years, of kids, marriage, and jobs.
I have found a happiness, I didn't know existed. But don't think it didn't come without a price tag.
I am so happy to be back on this blog, sharing all the craziness and chaos!!
