This weekend we had our #greatnessmastermind and I was mia most the weekend due to family and business stuff which when i can’t make it, it always leaves me with a sense of FOMO.
But I’ve actually been getting better at calming that feeling.
At one time in my life I would say yes to everything out of fear of missing that next big opportunity.
Life is a work in progress and nowadays when I don’t make an opportunity i don’t freak out like i use to.
@alysebrautigam who is apart of our mastermind asked a great question. She asked ‘what advice would I give my 10 year younger self now.’ That was an awesome question and I had a bit more time to think of it.
I would tell my younger self that, there are certain things out of our control in life. As a person who has always been relatively good at creating something out of nothing, I for a while thought I was invincible.
So what has the last 10 years and taught me? (Because in the last 10 years I went from a 6 figure job to collecting unemployment, to almost losing my house, to starting a brand new career as a course creator, to developing a few software programs, to hitting 7 figures in my business, to starting the adoption process, to finally completing the adoption process after 3.5 long and grueling years, to having an amazing little girl, to bringing our beautiful sons home, to balancing our new fulfilling life.) The one thing I’ve come to realize is that nothing is in our control. But... The key to being whatever we want in life is persistence and consistency. However, persistence is more important.
There are going to be barriers. Big ones. Almost near unbreakable ones that are going to stop you. The key is to be fluid at the moments of near defeat.
If something else requires your attention at some point in your life that is unforeseen such as an illness or let’s say you need to care for a family member, allow yourself to take on that role. At any point you can get back on the path. Even if you are taken off the path. And sometimes the path morphs and evolves with time. Just realize that you can’t control time but you can control your ability to not give up.
