The line between these two ideas can be VERY blurry to the point where you think you’re happy but for real for real, you’re just really comfortable. This was something I had to ask myself a few years ago (and still ask today). From the outside looking in, I was #livingmybestlife. I had a lot of great opportunities and I was living in my favorite city in the world. Ya’ll, NYC will ALWAYS be my favorite city in the world.
If I can be completely honest with you, something felt like it was missing. Like my soul craved for something more. But at the time, I couldn’t put my finger on what. Looking back, it wasn’t that I didn’t know what I wanted to do…I just didn’t know ‘how‘ I’d do it. I think deep down inside, we all know what we truly want in life. But there’s something inside of us that stops us from going after that “thing.” Usually, it’s fearing the unknown and not knowing exactly ‘how’ to go after that “crazy idea” that won’t go away.
Wanna know what’s on the other side of fear?
SO SO much happiness and freedom. Yeah, there are things you’ll have to sacrifice on the journey. But the grass is definitely greener on the other side of fear. The journey can be challenging, for sure…working long hours in the beginning, distancing yourself from people who don’t support or encourage you, being super intentional with every decision and missing out on events and parties. On the flip side of that, it also means going to bed feeling fulfilled and knowing that you’re making a difference by sharing your unique talents with the world. These days I travel often, create my own schedule, and I get to help people all over the world start their online entrepreneurial journey.
Now guys, my life FAAAAAAR from perfect. Whew! There are things I still struggle with daily. And I’m constantly learning, growing, seeking knowledge, and trying to show up in life as the best version of myself. LISTEN…it’s a daily practice. I’m so grateful for the amazing people in my life (i.e family, friends, coaches, and mentors). Having a strong support system definitely helps when you’re thinking about making significant life changes.
Now, take a second to really think about what you’re willing to do to create your dream lifestyle and what action can you take today to start making changes in your life.
