So I’m really, truly leaving my job. We’ve hired the New Me and he starts next week. A few months ago when this first got real I spent a LOT of time freaking out about money. Counting my pennies and realizing I didn’t have any. I couldn’t breathe. I cried a lot. My wonderful sister talked me through, multiple times.
Even with all that stress and fear, I knew I had to do it: let go and leap. That meant more than letting go of a full time job. It meant letting go of the money stress – yes, I need to pay attention to my bills and income, but it was not helping me to cry weekly about it. Especially when I actually was able to pay my bills! I didn’t have extra, but I was covering the basics, which is the most important. Go I got a grip. Without that fear consuming me, I was able to widen and sharpen my vision.
Breathing fully, seeing things sharply the way I would imagine you do when you’re skydiving and watching the ground get closer and closer before the parachute deploys, I was able to get clarity on what I’d need to accomplish my seriously big-time goals. I need people to listen to my message – I need easy, fun ways for folks to engage with me, as a person and coach. I need to learn some business marketing skills. It’s time for me to bust past my own social network and start affecting strangers lives. I started telling the world “I’m going to sit at home these next three months, build my business and make tons of money.” I’m not sure how that is going to happen, but that’s what I want to happen, so there you go.
Three weeks before fully going full time, I have been approached by several people wanting to partner with me. They all bring amazing skills and talents. They all see my bigness, and want to support that. They are also experts in the areas that I struggle. They are the perfect people to construct my landing pad with. They are exactly what I needed to show up to be successful, right now. It’s amazing. This is happening. My parachute deployed.
What do you need to let go of before you can fully leap into your dreams? For me it was money stress, disguised as my job. What’s yours? How are you dealing with it? If you checked the fear at the door and did what you WANT, what would that be? Let me know in the comments, we’re in this together!
