Two Years ago I taught a course at Mindvalley University in Barcelona, Spain. It was an incredible experience. But there was one problem. I had my own coaching business but I was teaching someone else’s program. And I was good at it. I was great at it. AND I was traveling around the world teaching it WHILE doing my own coaching. Win. Win. Right?
No. Not right.
I was teaching someone else’s program. Not my own.
I felt it. And kept feeling it. That pull that comes from your heart when you’re ready for more, when your soul is whispering. Will you listen?
I’ve heard this before…. over and over I’ve heard it. Sometimes I listened. Sometimes I didn’t. I only regretted the times I didn’t listen.
And so I leapt.
The next time I was asked to teach that program….I said no. Even though it was good money. Even though it was an amazing opportunity. Even though it was a very enticing destination.
Because here’s the thing, I didn’t want to be known for teaching THAT program. I wanted to be known for teaching my own.
So I had to leap. It really wasn’t an option. The cocoon was breaking apart. It couldn’t hold me back any longer.
The transformation isn’t easy. It’s definitely a metamorphosis. And there’s lots to learn. But I’m happy to report that just 2 years later all my dreams are now my new normal.
The programs I wanted to run. The courses I wanted to design. The masterminds. The luxury retreats. The team. The platform. The list. The book. The speaking gigs. All of it.
And then I got the call…. I was asked to speak at Mindvalley University again. But this time doing my own thing. Teaching my own workshop.
And let me tell you…. It. Was. Spectacular! It was everything I dreamed of and more.
I stood at the front of the room at the end of my talk, with people applauding and a standing ovation. They came up to meet me and give me a hug and asked me to sign my book. It was a dream. It was surreal. And it was everything I had pictured and more.
And… it felt so normal. It was easy. Almost effortless. It felt right. I felt like I belonged up there. The praise and accolades felt normal. The book signing felt normal. The standing O felt normal.
This quickly became my new normal.
And it can for you too. When you get sick and tired of doing for others and you’re ready, really ready to step up and do for yourself. It can be your new normal when you’re finally ready to leap. It might not mean to quit your job and start your own thing but you know what the leap is. It might be a leap into your health and fitness, a leap into your relationship or a leap into investing in yourself and your self care. But there’s a leap. How do I know? Because it’s life. And we’re made for this.
Are you ready to leap? Are you ready for your new normal?
I’d love to hear what it is.
Take the first step and post your leap here. This tribe knows how to support the caterpillars.
Soon to be butterflies,
