We all hit walls in our lives and it affects everything we do; our relationships, family and even our businesses. I want to let you know that you are on the right path toward your dream business. It doesn’t matter if you feel like you are marching up a different path or hitting your head against a wall, you need to trust it.
If you have read my about me page you will know I have done a lot in my lifetime. I have had loads of jobs, created several businesses, had a family, moved houses and more.
Yesterday reality struck!
It stuck hard.
First I want to tell you a little more about my story. I am sure some of you might relate to the challenges I have faced and sometimes we just need a voice to tell our story. So we know that we are not alone and are indeed on the right path.
Years ago I worked for an organic veggie farmer and his wife who was a Chinese medicine woman, they were an amazing couple, living off the grid and they just really inspired me. I learned everything I could from them about growing veggies (I am a country girl and I already knew a lot but just didn’t understand the climate where I lived) I also learned about my body and what eating clean food really meant for me.
Anyways while I had a million questions for them about learning, the thing that I was always struggling with was, why was I not rich and famous yet, why was I not successful. Yes, I asked them too! I felt like I could talk to these people.
I would complain about my efforts not getting me anywhere, I would try really hard and I felt like no one was seeing what I was achieving. Well, I didn’t see what I was achieving. At the time I was running my own farm gate and writing my successful blog. But I wanted the big time and it wasn’t happening.
Each step we take in our life is one step closer to where we are meant to be.
Back then I would never have thought that I would be a business coach. Yes, I was coaching them to grow and expand their businesses for FREE!! And you know what they are booked out and increased distribution of their veggie supply. Thanks to yours truly.
After all my complaining as to why I wasn’t getting ahead and feeling successful, I was learning something else. I was practicing my skill of helping others to improve their business this was five years ago.
That is only one point in my life where I look back and go – WOW.
I was totally missing the point
I was pushing towards this idea of success that wasn’t aligned with what I was gifted and passionate about. I just wanted it flat out (I had no idea what success looked like for me). Now I just do my job and I love it. I know that this is what I was meant to do.
Reality did strike hard.
Over the years life has been falling into place around me, my dream house (which we will own as of today in the rainforest) my dream job and I am also working on developing the dream me (I love diving into spiritual work to gain a deeper learning of myself).
As much as I can plan, create launching campaigns or tweak websites – if your heart is not in what you do, it is not what you are meant to do. It is ok to try things to see if they fit. I have tried loads of things, in each scenario I tried was a little message. I didn’t always see it, and that is ok.
I can look back now and go ‘oh wow’, the art classes and catering company I ran were all setting me up to run events – which are coming soon FYI. The catering company also taught me to be a better cook, I can cook a mean meal in less than 30minutes that is nutritious and nourishing. My blog taught me about social media, online marketing and how to put together a website. Going to design school taught me the principals of good design and what is pleasing to the eye. Working as veggie farmers assistant picking veggies helped feed me and my family.
Everything I have done has been a small stepping stone of knowledge and learning to where I am today. I am on the brink of success everything is happening organically around me and it feels fucking amazing. This is the first time in my life I know exactly where I am meant to be.
So, no matter where you are in your life or business know that you are on the right path. The one that will take you to where you are meant to go. Trust it. Allow it to guide you, live in each experience and explore it too.
You are meant for great things!
I would love to hear about your latest learning experience that has just confirmed you are on the path toward your dream life & business?
