Being a single Mum I was so sick and tired at being owned by the ‘BOSS’ I wanted to own my life, set my own rules, work my own hours, be there for the kids, earn enough money so I could stop saying “no” to the small things that I so longed for the kids to have.
To give you an idea, I had just moved into a small 3 bedroom first floor apartment with my 2 children, working full time, and my budget book was my best friend!
Everything was run by that book; my rent was a $300 every 2 week. I had to budget for food, bills, birthdays, school trips, uniforms and much more. Things were very tight.
I took a BIG breath 15 months ago and jumped away from security, or the comfort zone as I like to call it, in order to achieve better things. Since then I have reinvented myself, my goals and visions, my lifestyle, my business, my teams, even my LOVE life!
As the saying goes “if it’s meant to be its up to me”
The journey I have been on in those little 15 months hasn’t been easy, but my WHY was much bigger than the bumps in the road. I was willing to run, fall dust off my knees and go again, for as long as it would take to achieve the life I wanted.
What I have learnt is you do not have to re-invent the wheel.
Copy what successful people do.
Always know that successful people would have gone through some tough times to get to where they want to be and you are no exception.
Be willing to learn.
Have tough skin.
Make sure your WHY is bigger than your excuses.
The only way to fail is to give up or to not even get started in the first place.
If you want a new life take a leaf from Nike…JUST DO IT!
