“I was a tree blowing and bending in the wind. I stopped fighting and planted my roots. Now, I’m standing taller than ever before.”
Four years ago I was uncomfortably stuck—making fear‐based decisions, stressed, anxious and unhappy. I was the President & CEO of a professional services firm and the company was growing and bringing in more revenue than before. I was awarded Washington SmartCEO Magazine’s “Smart 100” in 2010, 2011 and 2012. Everything should have been great, but personally, I was struggling—really struggling.
Despite my professional success, I could no longer hide my unhappiness. I had been locked in to believing I had no choices, but to stay where I was. I was miserable, but I couldn’t imagine walking away. I ignored my inner guidance and took a practical path. Everyone else was telling me that this is major success, but I kept thinking—
Is there is something more than this?
If everyone else has a normal life, what’s wrong with me?
I should be happy, but I’m not. I should be grateful, but I’m not. I should be thinner, taller, smarter, wittier, a better parallel parker… it never ended. I was completely out of balance and disconnected.
My limiting beliefs were drowning out the voice inside of me and I continued to make compromises that made me feel increasingly numb.
I realized that that all the experiences in my life—my achievements, lifestyle, relationships, health, and happiness were based on the beliefs I hold.
I recognized that I have a choice in everything, but some of my beliefs were blocking my choices.
I learned how to change my beliefs to create a successful life and business that I love.
I discovered that staying in the present moment creates my future.
And I took the leap of my life.
I was terrified of failing and didn’t know how I would be able to leave behind my old ways, but I knew I couldn’t keep doing what I was doing. The world made it seem like a crazy choice, the fear of failure made it seem like insanity, but I let myself do it anyway and that is where the magic happened.
I left that job to open my mind to listening to my heart and soul. I walked out on traditional security. Being open and willing was the key to my healing and success. I had to change my beliefs about work and my worth.
I said no to the fear and judgment from myself and others. I quit my ‘safe’ job and spent the past 3 years building the business and life of my dreams. I changed my thoughts & beliefs, released tons of baggage, and embraced my own discomfort.
I redefined success on my terms and connected to innate authenticity. I dug myself in the trenches and did the hard work so now, I can teach others how to get there in a quick, straightforward way—living your success, living your authenticity, and living in your true happiness.
Authenticity: the degree to which one is true to their individual personality, spirit, or character, despite external pressures.
My approach to “achieving” drastically changed and it was the complete counter opposite to the way I’ve always been successful in the past. I was a make‐it‐happen person that went for it all, but when I finally stopped pushing for more, my life unfolded in miraculous ways. Letting go of the constricted belief I had formed about success was enabled by letting go of the illusion I had of control and scarcity thinking. If you told me this would be my life three years ago, I would have said that you are nuts! It’s amazing what happened when I got out of my own way.
Now I am happy, content, successful, and living a life I love. The unfolding of this story is one of the biggest surprises of my life and now I’m here, heart‐to‐heart, to do the same for you. I learned what is my work to do, what my purpose is, and where I belong in this world. Now I am happy, free and successful.
I think you should join me!
