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!
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 Dream Business Launcher Course for Online Entrepreneurs. But it was a process alright! The business building process is simple, if you know the steps to take. And that’s why I am now devoted to helping you build a business you love, so you can leave the job you don’t – faster, easier and better.
