I began living a life I had always dreamt of after I woke up one day and thought “is this it?”
There was a calling, an inner voice, saying that I was meant to do great things, yet I was too scared to break the ice into a new reality.
My journey began a few years ago and I’ve never looked back. My mission has evolved and become one that I knew was my calling.
The journey to the top has been one of trial and error, yet one that has forced me to grow, become uncomfortable and accept change, even the unknown. At moments, it all seemed incredibly scary, yet I knew that by pushing through, asking questions and making what I crave for my future to be the driving force of all I do, it would be worth it. And it has been!
Of course, change can be intimidating, but wondering what if for the rest of my life was even scarier.
Success comes with its own series of unexpected events, and sometimes they are not easy. Okay, lets be honest, we’re all leaders here.. making a name for yourself isn’t easy. If it were, everyone would do it! There were times when throwing it all away seemed like the best idea, and it would have been easy, yet what I envision for my future was far more compelling to keep going.
What about you? As a leader, I know times can become more strenuous than you’d like to recall and not everyone understands why you do, sacrifice or choose the life you have. It probably seems inorganic to sacrifice your time, what can feel like your sanity, or even relationships in order to create a dream into existence. So many people just want to be comfortable living and being content. But that’s not you. It’s not me either. Which is what brought me here.
Like you, once I knew what I wanted, deserved and had the capability of creating, I never looked back. Through the tough times, late nights, early mornings and obscene obstacles, giving up was never really an option. The hard work is temporary in exchange for a lifetime of adventure, happiness, giving back and satisfaction of a legacy you’ve created.
I get it. Really, I do.
I also know the other side of this life. The side that feels lonely and unattached to anything remotely comfortable. That feeling that says “nobody understands who you are now”. The person you’ve had to transform into to become who you see yourself as for your future. Trust me when I say, you aren’t the only one who’s felt this way. Also, know that there is no reason you should go farther alone. I call this Lonely Achievers Syndrome ™.
Our lives are surrounded by relationships; romantic and platonic. There isn’t an aspect of life that doesn’t thrive within a relationship. Some may be more meaningful or feel ‘better’, but all relationships command respect FROM you FOR you.
Let’s put this into perspective for a moment.. if a relationship is more draining or emotionally charged in a not-so-fun way, it’s time to rethink its purpose and necessity within your life.
On the other hand, if an established connection is fulfilling and leaves you feeling elated, its likely that this connection has long-term potential. The relationships that we choose to surround ourselves with are the equivalent of the happiness we have for ourselves, within ourselves. All of which are essential to the success you’re creating.
All facets of our lives are intertwined into one giant ball of success, or otherwise. If you’re struggling to rekindle the connections that you once had to fill a void in your life, one that you may not have shared with anyone because of its intimate capacity, don’t fret! Relationships that are cultivated in honesty, respect and mutual vision can be the most fulfilling relationships of your life; romantic and platonic!
This is where I come in. I have made it my mission to share my knowledge and training of how to build success and personal happiness all at the same time.
If this resonates with you, it’s time for us to chat.
Much love, Jessi
