How Does Achieving Success Look Like?
From an emotional point of view, success comes to everyone after the same certain steps. It’s just the packaging of these steps that’s different. Here’s how things looked like for me. And if you recognize yourself in any of those situations, that’s great: you’re on the right path!
Following The Rules
It’s funny, life is so different from one generation to the next, and yet many of the “rules” stay the same: go to school, graduate high school, go to college, graduate college, get a job, get a Graduate Degree, climb up the corporate ladder… Sounds familiar?
But back in the day, I had no problem following those rules. When you’re young and everyone tell you that’s what you need to do in order to be happy, that’s what you do. You don’t know any better.
And if you’ve had a difficult childhood like me, this magical step-ladder to “happily ever after” becomes even more tempting.
Yet, sooner or later, at a certain level, you realize the ladder is a scam. It does give you some certainty and certainty is important. But other things are also important.
And here’s the deal about this realization: very few have the courage to change directions. So, because life always works for you and not against you, destiny makes sure you fall. And it hurts.
The Bottom Is A Great Starting Point
When me and my mother moved to Phoenix, AZ to live our life in the Sun, I honestly excited. Any change can get your adrenalin pumping, and so for a moment there you think: OK, I was wrong, this really is what happiness is all about.
I found a new job that I liked and just as I started feeling safe and secure again, destiny intervened. My new boss – you know who you are, thank you for doing this! – wrote me up to the Sr. Director of Human Resources for a silly, silly thing and this situation changed me.
I know some people go through much more dramatic things. But to you that are now thinking to yourself “So your boss hurt your ego, big deal, I have much more serious problems”, here’s what I have to say: the more you fail to find what you were really meant to do on this Earth, the more destiny will push you off the ladder. So you having a lot of problems is just another sign that you need to get to your personal breakthrough NOW, before the next huge challenge comes along.
But for me having a job where I felt unappreciated, having to take care of my retired mother and having no friends or family to count on was enough. I went into my room, got in the bed and pulled the covers over my head – I did not want my mother to hear me cry. But after I was done crying, I decided I wanted to take the control over my life back.
Are you at that point? Good. You can only go up from here.
Decide And Re-Build
Getting kicked out of your comfort zone leads to two things. First, you immediately raise your standards. You can feel it in your heart that in order to solve whatever problem needs solving, you need more. More of what? More of everything! More knowledge and confidence. More curiosity and energy. More determination and commitment, and strength.
Second: you decide change must occur immediately if not sooner.
For me, this process lead to a successful business coaching career and the creation of the 12 Week Clarity, Strategy & Systems Intensive for Online Entrepreneurs. But it was a process alright! The re-building process is never easy. And that’s why I am now devoted to helping you re-build your life – faster, easier and better.
So where are you?
Here’s the deal about a happy life: in order to live it, you have to find a way to make a living by doing what you do. And, ideally, you’d be able to do it on your own terms.
That’s exactly why online entrepreneurship is such a hit right now. It may be a hit, but it’s not easy. And that’s exactly why you need an energetic strategist, a believer that won’t let you quit, someone who’s in the know about how online business works by your side.
I am that person. I am a purpose and passion builder. And I’ not going to lie to you – it will be a long, tough journey. But I can make it a bit shorter and a bit easier if you let me. And what’s the end of it all is so worth it getting there sooner.
