2019 was a huge year for me. I finally stopped ‘talking’ about what I wanted to do and actually DID it. For me, that meant quitting my secure job with benefits and diving into self-employment. The catalyst for the change was finishing my Master’s degree in Leadership and recognizing my greatest fears and some not so great personality characteristics, literally had me going nowhere. This insight, along with a combination of vulnerability and soul-searching led me to call myself out on my own hypocrisy.
What it means for me in 2020 is that I am stronger, more open to fear and willing to tackle things that I never would have done in the past. What does that mean for you? Ask yourself:
- What’s holding you back from achieving your dreams?
- What are you telling yourself that limits your ability to move forward?
- What assumptions do you have?
- One year from now, where do you want to be? What are you willing to change to get it?
As the end of the calendar year approaches, many people reflect on their past and dream about their future. There is no doubt that change is hard. The flip side is that it is SOOOOO worth it. My challenge to you is carve out and shape in your mind what it is that you truly want to change and then break it down into manageable pieces so that every week, you are one step closer to achieving your dream. What would it feel like to actually achieve your dream? I can tell you it feels WAYYY better than I could ever have imagined……
Let’s stop the cycle of dreaming of change and doing nothing about it. Let’s connect and see what dreams are #possible. What is going to cost you? I would argue that the cost of doing nothing is much higher than the cost of change.
