Forgive me, my original quotes are not the most professionally done. However, I am proud that I even taught myself how to do this. Which brings me to the point of this particular blog…
You may be laid off, or miserable, or neither, but still considering change…
I am here to put a battery in your back and cheer you on to GO FOR IT. If you desire change in any aspect of your life, what catalyst(s) do you have around you?
When your phone is dying, you are quick to go for the charger. The same logic applies to your life and passions. It has been 2 months since I made a major, scary change. My days are still scary at times, and I constantly talk myself out of fear and future-oriented thinking. You talk to yourself too, don’t judge me.
As my quote above says, “If you are serious about your life, do something consistently for 6 months. I guarantee you see results. If you give up, you don’t want it bad enough.”
So, here I am, only in month 2 of entrepreneurship (right?) , but I can attest to what I said because I am already seeing God-given and God-directed results in so many ways.
It’s easy for us to question or regret change. Did I move too soon? What if he really was going to change that time? Should I have waited another year before starting my business?
A cataclysmic event will spark change in your life, if you allow it. Let’s say, you want to change dynamic of your relationship with a friend. They use you as a therapist, and you are tired of it although you love them dearly. One day, they call and unload their problems on you without asking about you, and you are in a hospital bed. That can be the catalyst for you to establish healthier boundaries if you choose so, or, you can do as you’ve always done and complain to yourself as if anyone can hear you.
I pray your catalyst isn’t as extreme as mine, but I can only speak from my experience. In March, I lost my grandmother and that paralyzed me. I became a zombie at my job and in life in general because I had to keep going to make her proud. So, I got into therapy. In October, my grandfather died. Instead of aiming to be a better teacher, I aimed to be a better person.
- That started by changing my career path – I wasn’t fulfilled.
- I started to vent and share my love for sign language on Youtube, which built a small following,
- which led to me wanting to blog,
- which led to me creating this site from scratch,
- which led to more support,
- which led to people sharing their resources to help me grow and improve, which has led to where I am now…
I am on my own track, going at my own speed, towards my own destination.
I want the same or better for you.
There is always better, my friend.
Consistency is key, don’t focus on the time frame. Trust me, it feels as though its been much longer than 2 months for me. Time can make you feel URGENCY, which is another word for fear in my world. What can you do to be consistent?
