The hardest part of my job isn't picking people up when they get discouraged, answering silly questions on a daily basis, or pushing people along even when they're not seeing results.
My job gives me the luxury of being involved in hundreds of lives via social media. A large percentage of those lives are 20 something year old women with goals, dreams and ambitions. The hardest part of my job is hearing about all our generation aspires to do, and watching them do nothing about it..
The fear of accomplishing your dreams .. something I didn't know could even exist until about a year ago.
But it's a real thing!
It's being afraid to put yourself out there, to really go after it.
It's the fear of failure, of never accomplishing your goal.
It's about the fear of how much time and effort it will take, the work you will have to put in.
What's stopping you?
Think about if you're using those things as excuses, or if they're really holding you back from going after it...
If you responded to that, "No Kodie, one or more of the things on that list are actually holding me back from going after my goals.." then my gosh why continue to live out something that's holding you back?
If it's work, put in the time and effort after hours to build up what you actually want to do.
If it's time, ask yourself if there are pockets of time within your day that you could be utilizing more productively.
If it's money, figure out where you could be saving. Get a credit card and put a thousand dollars on it toward your goals.. you can pay it off later -- While building your credit!
If it's kids, well you really can't get rid of them ;). There's nothing to feel guilty about asking another parent to drive your child to soccer practice or working toward your goals while they're sleeping..
A fellow coach had the opportunity to interview her Grandfather as he was on his death bed. He was an extremely successful man, financially. He owned several car dealerships, provided well for his family and was very well liked.
She asked her Grandfather, What do you regret most in your 91 years of life?
If you have a passion you can think of off the top of your head, figure out how to make an income from it.
If you can't think of a passion, start dabbling in different hobbies and go from there!
You see.. life isn't meant to be lived just going to a 9-5 job you really don't care for just so you can pay the bills.
We should be out exploring, doing what we love, laughing every day, making the lives of others better because we've found our passion and we are spreading joy and happiness from pursuing it every day!
At the end of the day I go to my vision board and I look. Before bed every night I stare at my 12 week goals. Concluding every single day I'm crossing off a number that says "Yes, I did everything in my power today, January 17th, 2017 to make my dreams a reality. I took this day to move one day closer to my goals."
