Dreams do come true…
This year so many of my dreams have come true.
4 years ago my husband and I had conversation about who would financially support the family. I LOVE working and yet, at the time, I didn’t believe that I could make more than $30 an hour. (By the way I have two undergraduate degrees and a masters degree.)
In my first full calendar year of being a life coach I made $4,262. (I think my husband was sceptical that year…)
This year I received an award that represents a financial goal I have been working towards. I made over $100,000 in 12 months.
This year I left my position as a coach instructor at the BEST coaching school in the world to focus on my thriving life coaching business, to serve client I love, to do work that inspires me, make enough money to support my family, working from home and working the hours I choose.
Last month I was invited to coach one of Amy Porterfield’s communities on the topic of business mindset. (WTF someone pinch me).
Today I received an email inviting me to be a guest on Brooke Castillo’s podcast. (Holy shit!)
Later this month my husband, two kids and my dog are going to move into a home that my husband designed and built. It has a custom built office for with my own air conditioning unit. (When we first designed the office, it was supposed to be for my husband mwahahahah).
If you are looking at my Instagram feed thinking oh yeah, it’s easy for her. I want to tell you something. When I flew to the US to do a 6 day in person Coach Certification with Brooke Castillo, I had never been coached before. It was my first foray into self help. It was the first time I had ever been away from my kids overnight (they were 4 and 6 at the time). I had never run a successful business. I had spent 20 plus years avoiding public speaking because I thought I sucked at it. Creating these results in my life was because I was willing to feel discomfort. (To enjoy a visual representation of discomfort, see the photo of me above. It’s me on a roller coaster called the Mouse trap. I truly did envisage the car driving off the rails, 5 stories high, killing me and my eldest son in the process.)
What got me here? The willingness to believe it was possible and the willingness to show up even when it felt hard, and to remember I was doing it all, because I wanted to.
And now that I’m here, I really can see that it’s not those external things that truly matter. They are just the icing on the cake. No really, the way I approach life and work is changing. In the process of creating all this, I learned to trust myself, believe in myself and learn that I am enough, no matter what. If I can’t sit back and enjoy the journey (even the parts that feel like a roller coaster), then what is the point?
No matter what your dream is, I believe in you! You can do it and you may as well have fun along the way! 💕
If you want help, reach out to me. If I’m not the coach for you, I’ll find someone who is a perfect fit!
