Let’s get one thing out of the way before we get started in earnest here. Steve hates me right now.
Have you not been following me for a year? C’mon!
I’ve become very present to how I have been denying and hiding what I’ve actually accomplished this year. While I am not where I want to be…yet. I’m in far better shape than I have ever been.
So without further ado (and in the face of Steve trying to tackle me) here’s what I have accomplished so far in the last 365 days.
· I’ve lost close to 50 pounds.
· I am no longer on blood pressure medication and my blood pressure is normal.
· I am actively working on my second book, with a goal to get it published before the end of 2017.
· My personal confidence is at an all-time high. I mean, you should see some of the women I’ve been interacting with!
· I have developed, delivered, and am revising and delivering another in-person coaching workshop. I’m actually comfortable as a public speaker!
· I am actively building my coaching practice.
And last but certainly not least:
· I travel once a month to New York City. And I train with and among the best coaches on Planet Earth!
And this is what I can actually think of!
Again, my life isn’t where I want it to be yet. I have hopes, plans, and dreams that scare me. But I know this with 100% certainty: I am far better equipped to make my dreams my life today than I was yesterday. I have the support of an amazing support system.
Let’s look at the next five years of my life. Here are some of the things I’m declaring that I will accomplish before I turn 45:
· I’ll have a successful author career. A career with connections with readers. And my words and stories will leave an impact on the world.
· My coaching practice will be successful, rewarding, and impactful.
· I will have found love with that once in a lifetime woman.
· And I will have a family.
My mom always called me a late bloomer. In all honesty, I hated that. I always thought that was silly, absurd, and insulting. But the more I think of it, the more I think that she was right on point.
I am a late bloomer. And that’s okay.
Yes, I’m almost 40 years old and I haven’t “made” much of my life.
And as I wrote that sentence and have read the previous 411 words in this post, I realize how ridiculous that sentence is. I have made a lot of my life and I’m just getting started.
Never forget; as long as your heart still beats, there’s still a chance. As long as you can still draw breath, there’s still a chance. As long as you’re still above ground, there’s still a chance.
Take that step. Step outside your comfort zone. And live your life as if you’re alive.
