A conversation I have been having lately with my clients and friends is around creating the success and vision we want for our lives. My theory is that one key factor in success is how bad do you want it? I know that being a successful woman in business, with a family, can be challenging at times. It can be hard work. It can be all consuming. Does it have to be? I don't think so, but we can save that topic for another day.
AND - it is worth it, if you want it. And, if you know what you want.
Some of you may know by now that I believe that our definition of success changes over time. For me, I knew that I wanted to create the kind of freedom and time and flexibility to do work I love and have more time with my family. I didn't want to spend my days commuting and doing work that was fine, but not on my purposeful path.
This was not easy. There were times when it was exhausting, when I would cry, or feel so tired that I should just let it all go. But I knew what I wanted, it was so crystal clear for me, and I knew I would have it. The interesting thing is that I didn't always know what that would look like exactly (would I be a health coach, a cranio sacral therapist, a yoga teacher...), but I always knew I would create what I wanted. And what I wanted was the flexible lifestyle, doing work I love, AND having more time with my family.
So how bad do you want it?
I'm not saying you have to work every moment of every day - I actually don't believe that anymore - at all!! But you have to be crystal clear about what you want, and believe in every cell in your body that you will get there.
Do you know what you want? Do you believe?
Of course there are things that get in the way, that show up that need to be worked through. Those are the moments that count. Do you work THROUGH, or do you stop? Do you see these as opportunities to get more clarity and learn more about yourself, or even to shift perspectives and beliefs? Or do you keep running in a circle of can I, should I, maybe.
If you would like more clarity about what you want, reach out. That's what I am here for. If I can help you, we can set up a time to talk.
