What Happened 4 Years Later…..
Right when a person decides to make a “run” for it and live their true chosen purpose, usually almost 100% of the times, that person will find herself in the darkest place in life, at the lowest point and alone. In this place she may considering quitting….most do. But should she hold on just for a little while longer and learn the lessons, she will win at playing *Gianormously!
Short True Story
One of my favorite *mentors always talks about releasing the champion within. She says we have to think *Gianormous (she made that up)! This means if you were thinking about making $50,000 this year, add a “0” and make it $500,000!
What I know is this….I’ve always lived to play *Gianormously!
Truth be told, I didn’t have to suffer heartaches, loss, relocation nor lack if I didn’t want something better and higher for myself.
Where I was felt good, but it wasn’t who I was. I had a jet-set lifestyle, parties, clothes, beautiful homes, overseas travel and great fun, but in my heart I was sad and angry most of the time. I wasn’t being honest nor honorable. Yeah, I’m flawed.
Now, there is nothing wrong with that type of life style (minus the flawed stuff), I just wasn’t living up to my standards. I wasn’t even being considered but I was willing to compromise my standards and beliefs in exchange for lack of consideration, false tales fortune and occasional feel-goods, as well as constant misery.
One day, I got tired of being miserable.
Just so we’re clear, this was not an overnight decision to change.
I had decided a while back and as a matter of fact, I decided four years ago today to live my life from who I truly say I am. I knew who I wanted to become, but I had no idea it would take me through valleys and hills to get to it.
Real talk? Had I known the challenges I would face, I would have played it safe to spare myself the harder parts of it.
Reflecting back four years ago, it took a lot of courage to step from under the opinions of others, my family, friends and a 20 year traditional life style I’d lived just to put everything I owned in my truck and leave my comfort zone to live my purpose and follow my passions. I only took my business items, highschool stuff, and my children and I left everything behind and I mean everything.
What happened 4 years Later?
Here I am today, having moved 4 times, operating my own businesses, dancing (choreography), writing, speaking before thousands, meeting good people, accomplished my original #1 goal and having a chance to change the world while having fun doing it! Life has is challenges, but I’m learning to embrace them because out of them always comes the next best person, place and/or thing!
I would say I am human and I am flawed.
I am happy and living *Gianormously!
PS: I still have the same jet-set lifestyle but better with my standards of excellency being met. Those standards don’t impose on the feelings of others nor does it put me in situations where the “truth” will tell on me, if I didn’t tell on me first. No secrets, no drama, just peace and happiness because I am operating from the truth of who I am. *Gianormous is from Lisa Nichols, Author of No Matter What and Founder of Motivating the Teen Spirit.
