A few weeks ago I was challenged to really think about my “why” my goals and what I truly want out of life.
Strangely enough, all of this self reflection has really got me thinking about everyone else. I made my choice, I picked my hard. I decided that I wasn’t going to let the 9-5 bring me down and control every aspect of my life. But what about all of you?
Now don’t get me wrong– if you love your job and are happy to work 9-5 doing what you do, that’s awesome. Seriously. But if you’re laying in bed or sitting on the couch right now filled with dread and anxiety because you have to go to work tomorrow and you hate your job, then I want to know what the heck you are doing to try and make things different.
There are too many people in this world who settle for the “norm”. There are too many people who are funding other people’s retirement while they themselves are still living pay cheque to pay cheque.
The thing is, I feel for you. But I also am going to be the first one to ask, so what are you going to do about it? If you have been sitting on an idea, waiting for the perfect moment, or brushing off an amazing opportunity to have your own business, now is the time to take action.
Reach out to a friend and bounce your idea off of them, realize there is never going to be a perfect moment, and answer the damn door when opportunity is knocking.
Life is way too short not to follow your bliss. Think about what makes you happy, what you want to achieve, and what you are passionate about. I really want to challenge you to stop sitting on the sidelines of your own life. Decide right now that if you don’t want to work another Monday again in your life, you’ll find a way not to. I can guarantee that if you are consistent, driven, and intentional with your goals you will achieve them.
Now get on out there and follow your bliss!
