I turned in my letter of resignation today. It is time to take my own words to heart and stop holding on because of fear. I thought that because I was pursuing my dreams of being an entrepreneur and working my 9-5 was okay as long as I kept my determination and focus. But I was only kidding myself. How can I fully be true to my greatness if a piece of me was being consumed by someone else’s goals? How can I say stay focused if a large portion of my day was consumed with a job that has nothing to do with the path I desired to walk?
I was a hypocrite. Bottom line.
I find myself on many nights working into the wee hours of the morning typing, scripting, marketing, building my own dreams because from 7:30 in the morning until 4:30 in the afternoon my focus was on building the dreams of my employer. I was pushing for myself but I wasn’t giving 100%, so I cheated myself out of 40 hours a week. I was getting the short end of the stick. I believed I was worth it but did I really?
I am telling you this because, as I stated in an earlier blog, I write to inspire you and in inspiring you, I inspire myself. So here I stand, inspired. Determined. Relieved. Excited. Nervous. READY.
People refuse to jump for fear of failure. You won’t jump for yourself, but you put your trust and security in the power of someone else’s hands because THEY won’t fail you? We have to believe that we are meant to be amazing. So BE AMAZING.
When is the last time you trusted, and I mean really trusted yourself? When is the last time you gave yourself the push you know you needed and just went for it, from your soul?
We have a tendency to blame others for our failures. but when will you begin to take control of your own life and accept the destiny that you know you deserve?
Look around, is that all you want? For the rest of your life?
We have to begin doing the things that are for our betterment and happiness. Stop allowing consequences to change our path to prosperity. We have to learn to trust our instincts and stop second guessing ourselves. We have to start believing in what we set out to do. Know that with or without support, we WILL prosper. You will stand on higher ground and take a look in the mirror and smile saying to ourselves “I made it.”
Trust that you can. Believe that you will. And you shall prosper.
