Feelings dictate your behavior.
Well I had fallen out of love with my JOB.
It was time to seek an alternative.
Not having any more confidence to walk away I was STUCK.
It was only when it became personal that I decided enough was enough.
The institution simply couldn't see that the person I was working for had sucked my energy, drained my creativity and was stopping me from doing the role I was employed to do, I was caged. Rock bottom, well not yet. One more blow - I have heard somewhere before that things happen to those that can handle it......
"Because you are a woman, I think it is best you do the administration work and I will take over from here, the business is doing well now and you seem to have too much on your plate at home!"
Awesome, talk about kicking someone when they are down. My husband had just been diagnosed with Cancer and he knew it. My job was all I had, but I really didn't want to be there any way.
Best decision I ever made. Scared, anxious and extremely proud I walked out knowing I would make it on my own. Failure was not an option.
I had been in a similar situation before, I have experience, I am well known in the industry, there is always someone worse off. Who am I kidding, this was about to be the scariest time of my life.
Sometimes decisions are made in hast, often these are the best decisions I have ever made. Never one to look back, always the optimist, I left that JOB and created my own business, 3 in fact. My husband is a Cancer survivor and now we help others get comfortable being uncomfortable with our Leadership Retreats.
If I could start again I would write down every day what I achieved that day, as I am certain I have forgotten to celebrate the successes on the way.
I would honour myself, love myself, trust myself and respect myself more than I have ever done before.
I would remind myself that I am GREAT and BELIEVE that my SUCCESS is not anything to be afraid of rather something to be PROUD of.
Feeling significant means your behaviour will be grateful, caring and kind.
Be the change that changes your life and others, if your are afraid of something do it, the more you do it the better you will become.
