Last Saturday I was working my day job and I told my boss that I have major #joblove. Why? Because I had a turmeric latter bought for me as a treat, and was gifted an incredible new jacket we just got in. This is on top of the already incredible perks I get with complimentary yoga and pilates classes.
Yesterday my day was made even more incredible by being gifted a brand new pair of running shoes as once again an incredible gift to say ‘thank you’ for all my work recently.
The funny thing is that this job didn’t just fall into my lap, it’s a job that a lot of people look to as their dream job, but I was able to make it mine.
I want to talk to you about why the thoughts that you are thinking to yourself are crucial to your own success.
If you are like any of my clients who first come to see me, you might have these stories swirling around in your head.
- I will never have a successful business.
- I can’t make money doing what I love.
- I am such a fraud, how can I call myself ____.
- I am never going to make it.
- Anything important has already been said.
Those above thoughts could be sporadic or they could feel like they are non stop. You might even wonder why it’s such a big deal? Why does it matter if you sometimes think like that when you truly do want your dreams?
Lately I’ve been in the middle of what I am going to call a shit-storm.
I feel like I should be further along. I feel like I keep falling short of the person I want to be.
Let me guess, you feel this way to? Honestly that doesn’t surprise me at all.
Why? Because you are here, and we live in the 21st century where you can see what everyone is doing with every minute of their time and how that is better than the option you are currently choosing. It’s a beautiful breathing ground for your ego.
Perhaps you have the feeling that you should be further along, that you should have your shit together, that you are taking the wrong path and should be doing what everyone else is.
“Your life is right now! It’s not later. It’s not in that time of retirement. It’s not when the lover gets here. It’s not when you’ve moved into the new house. It’s not when you get the better job. Your life is right now. It will always be right now. You might as well decide to start enjoying your life right now, because it’s not ever going to get better than right now – until it get;’s better right now!” Esther Hicks
Your life is right now and whatever that looks like for you is perfect for you, right now.
There is no where else you need to be in life right now.
Stop rushing, stop hurrying and enjoy this moment right now.
Take a deep breathe, sigh it out.
Pause, look up from your screen and be present in this moment.
This year I declared that it was going to be a year of growth for myself, safe to say I haven’t been disappointed.
What’s sitting high on my dreams and desires board? Moving out, job raises, building my business are some of the keys.
This next period of my life was going to be focused on sowing the seeds, seeds of intentions and desires that when they would become a reality I would reap the rewards.
This meant work, devotion to my craft, putting in the effort, showing up each and every day, knowing that all of my hard work would compound over time till it paid off.
