Lighting that firework
I read blog posts and articles and ordered some books on self- development, and I felt this incredible surge of determination rise up within me. I was ready to fight all of the bullshit thoughts and disempowering beliefs I’d been holding onto for so many years. This voice that came from deep within my soul said,
“I’m going to make this happen for myself. I’m going to do the work and I’m the only person responsible for my life. No one is coming to save me. I’m gonna save me.”
Suddenly I had this firework lit up my ass.
And I stepped the hell up. I did the work. It didn’t happen over night. I committed to years of reading, learning, workshops, courses, coaching and painful growth. There were highs and lows, ups and downs, but I owned it. I mastered my mindset and transformed my inner world. My outer world followed and become unrecognisable. A few years after leaving that job, I was invited to breakfast with a huge brand offering me more money than I’d ever earned in my life. And guess where the meeting just so happened to be?.. In the lobby of the hotel I used to work at. The Universe has a wonderful sense of humour.
And as I sat there eating my poached eggs, I realised I’d officially made it; I was on the other side of the desk. I left that meeting with tears in my eyes because I was so unbelievably proud of myself. I had proven that I was in fact the powerful creator of my own life, and by getting out of victim mode, owning responsibility, listening to the calling of my soul and taking inspired action – I could quite literally achieve anything I wanted. Anything.
I just had to believe I deserved it.
