I remember TOO WELL the soul-crushing feeling of having to pay my BILLS with CREDIT CARDS, the same credit cards I had been working my ASS OFF to pay down.
And I remember the actual anger I had over the fact I had to do that despite no wrongdoing on my part, anger over the fact that I wasn’t getting the paychecks I EARNED for hours I actually WORKED.
And every day, I let those feelings fuel me. Every day, when I am tempted to make a silly financial decision, I think to how it felt to have no savings; to be wholly unprepared for fiasco’s such as the one I found myself in. Every day, when I am asking myself if entrepreneurship is for me, I remind myself that it’s what propels me towards financial freedom, so YES, it’s worth every frustration, every late night, every rejection.
It’s not easy, but worthwhile things never are. And financial freedom is DEFINITELY worth the hard work I put in, and if I ever question that, all I need to do is think back to how someone else’s mistake affected MY financial landscape.
I really love coaching because in a world full of things I can’t control and don’t enjoy, Coaching allows me to control several facets of my life, fuel my feel good tank by helping others feel good, and I ENJOY helping people, I ENJOY keeping myself accountable, I ENJOY my groups, teambuilding, biz powwows, and team calls!
Oh, and making some extra cash to pay off debt and do more good in the world with? YEAH, I enjoy that! Just being honest!
When you find something you enjoy doing, it doesn’t feel like work. And feeling like you are in control of some things? THAT is a pretty awesome feeling.
Ever given some consideration to seeing if this opportunity is for you? Because there is no obligation — no contracts, nothing like that. Like it? Run with it. Don’t feel it’s for you? No hard feelings and you will never have to wonder.
I don’t give this guy enough credit (or thanks!). I try to always be grateful and thankful, because I AM, but he really does a lot of behind the scenes work to take the pressure off of me. He cooks dinner most nights, helps around the house, takes the dog out usually 2 out of 3 times a day, he works his tush off at work, he is always the first to scrape my car off after a snowstorm, brings home coffees for me sometimes so it is one thing less that I have to do in the morning, listens to my visions, my goals, my fears, my frustrations… he is my soundboard, but he helps me focus on the big picture!
I am thankful for this dude for all of the above (and thats really just a small sampling of what this guy does!), but one of the things I am MOST grateful for is this guy knows how to make me laugh, even when I am really upset or mad (yes, sometimes that happens…), he just always knows how to break that up with laughter and humor, and if you know me, you know how big I am on that, so I am always grateful when he seamlessly breaks a mood with humor!
They say you should marry someone who makes you laugh, and I could NOT agree more. Love you babe!
Grab your Shakeo, whatever you need to make this Monday awesome… go do it! Go move those mountains!
