How much can life really change in a short period of time? As I reflect on where I was at and where I now am, I STILL have to pinch myself!
Just 3 years ago, on January 17, 2017, I was:
>>Experiencing the PEAK of CHRONIC PAIN in my body. For the majority of my 9 year corporate career, I developed immense right arm pain that got worse & worse overtime until I could barely use a fork to eat at nighttime by the time I got home from work. It radiated from my C6 down to my hand and ached SO BAD at times.😢
>> Having turmoil with my boss who was intolerant & angry😡 at me for the right arm pain (it’s like the Universe was making the contrast of my work life/body pain so difficult I had no choice but to make a BIG CHANGE)
>> Just over 1 year into working part-time in my skincare business (www.bodycherish.ca) and energy healing practice - but I was burning out because I had to work 45 hours/week in corporate career - and with all my body pain it was hard to do it all).
>> 3 months single after ending a long term long distance relationship (he was a great person & treated me well BUT I BELIEVED in soulmates & true love & knew he wasn’t “the one”). Nevertheless, I felt lonely 💔 - no longer having him in my life, while dealing with chronic pain & a career I didn’t like.
>> Dealing with an alcohol use relapse. 2 months prior (November 2016) I used again after swearing off it. I was back in the cycle of it.. and it wasn’t until May 21, 2017 that I become FREE from that chapter & stuck my sobriety🙌🏻💕
How did it ALL CHANGE?
⚡️⚡️I INVESTED IN MYSELF & MY DREAMS.
I BELIEVED I DESERVED MORE!⚡️⚡️
I had already been investing $500-$2000 in self-development here & there over the years but this time I went big and invested $10,000.00 - that I didn’t have (used a line of credit to pay for) into a group coaching program in February 2017.
The same way I used a bank loan to pay for my last car, I used a bank loan to pay for my new education to change (IMPROVE MASSIVELY) my life & career.
I learned what I needed to know, grew my skill sets, grew my confidence, dreamed 10x bigger and this resulted in:
1️⃣ I quit my corporate job (last day was March 30, 2017)
2️⃣ I freed myself from chronic pain (it went away in just 2 weeks after 9 f*cking years)
3️⃣ I got sober & SO SO much happier & healthier
4️⃣ Within my 1st year of working full time for myself, I already grossed $100,000.00 in my coaching business & skincare business.
5️⃣ By January 2019, I hit my first $200,000.00💸
6️⃣ I met, fell in love & got engaged to “the One” - my Soulmate who I knew existed❤️
7️⃣ I travelled (mostly solo!) to 5 countries and 19 cities during my entrepreneurial journey because of the FREEDOM I gained
It makes me cringe to think…
>> What if I didn’t take the leap?
>> What if I didn’t invest in myself?
>> What if I shrunk down & stayed small - let fear triumph over my heartfelt dreams for more?
The answer is:
⚠️ I would still be in that energy draining career. I would still have chronic bodily pain.
⚠️ I would still be hoping for true love & wondering why I am not attracting it.
⚠️ I would still be yearning deeply to share my message with the world - doing my purpose.
⚠️ I would have never been able to travel to 5 countries, 19 cities & counting over the last few years.
⚠️ I don’t want to admit it, but I might even still be drinking.
I quit that job when I had TWO mortgages🏠🏠 to carry BY MYSELF. My tenants on my rental property just gave me their move out notice. I also had debts. I grew up poor - no rich parents to come help me. Just me responsible for me.
This was the same week 💥I STILL CHOSE TO QUIT THAT JOB💥 Sounds crazy, perhaps?
>>> Not to me!!
What would have been crazy is CHOOSING TO STAY WHERE I WAS (STUCK) & not going for more.
So I said YES to living my life & no longer withering away in defeat & “I can’t because..”
Beautiful, sweet soul- with a heart of gold & desire for more, what are you ready to say yes to?✨
