I can think of so many people who've cited fear as their catalyst for the amazing things that were coming. And when I look back at my own journey, I've seen this same pattern.
Every time I was afraid to do something, feeling resistance to doing something and I did it ANYWAY....
I GREW and it spurred an incredible chain of events that to this day keep leading me forward.
When I moved 1000 miles from Chicago to Colorado, alone and had to totally start over with new friends, a new job, a new place.
When I left an abusive relationship a few years later and lived alone in an apartment - finally free - with nothing but my dog, an air mattress, and a Christmas Tree.
When I quit the sport I'd been doing for 15 years... that I'd HATED... and had to find myself again.
When I tried out for a play and got on stage in college... even though I was SO shy that I blushed every time a boy spoke to me. (I didn't get the part. The point was that I got on stage and didn't throw up.)
When I was afraid to quit my corporate job, but I did anyway.
When I was afraid of starting my business, but I did it anyway.
When I found out that I was pregnant - me! who was supposed to be childless - and I had a healthy, adorable baby boy. :)
When I STOPPED BEING A LONE WOLF and instead hired my first Marketing help, and a Virtual Assistant, and a COACH, and a nanny anyway. (You CANNOT have a fully successful business without working yourself to death, if you do not get support!)
When I signed on with my first business coach and made my first big investment... and came out being fully booked.
When I invested in a high level Mastermind with a business strategist, and women who would push me... And made half the investment back within 5 weeks.
When I felt the fear of starting a podcast, and I pulled the trigger on it ANYWAY.
When I dreamed of being on stage... and started going to Toastmasters.
When I dreamed of creating my own Mastermind... and I sold a spot within days of announcing it, WITHOUT an official sales page up.
