Today I want to share with you three lessons I learned in my first two months of Entrepreneurship.
April 13, 2018 was my last day at corporate America; finally, the moment that I had dreamed and waited for; the moment to turn my ‘hobby’ coaching practice into a real business. I was ready to take the plunge into the world of entrepreneurship.
I had so many plans and beliefs on how it would be, of all the things I would get done, all the books to read, classes to take, skills to master; I knew it wouldn’t be easy, but nothing could had prepared me for the ‘LIFE SHOCK’ the last two months had been; completely CRAZY!!
Even though I successfully worked from home for the last 8 years and I was very responsible at keeping a schedule when nobody was looking and being very productive, now that I am my own boss, I’m a complete mess!! Yes, I have accomplished some things but mostly I feel like time is slipping through my fingers – I’m writing this blog at 11:34 PM instead of 1:00 PM which is was my plan when I started my day.
To make matters worse, my intention of getting up at 5:00 AM like many successful people do didn’t go very well with my life style. I have always been a night person and this last two months intensify that; I have been working until 2:00 AM, I give myself at least 6 hours to sleep which puts my wake-up alarm time at 8:00 AM the earliest, messing up with my daily exercise routine as well 😬. Messy, Messy!!
Even my 12-year-old daughter told me today: Mom, I don’t want you to start you own company anymore; you are always busy and short with me ;-(.
All kinds of emotions and ideas have crossed my mind, from the super excited first two weeks, to the what the f*&^ were you thinking, to the “I don’t want to this anymore”, to the realization that my kids are watching and I’m shaping their future with my behavior – I CAN’T FAIL!!
After all the chaos, how am I surviving my transition into entrepreneurship? I’m getting reconnected with the spiritual side of my journey.
A week ago, I found an online program ’21 days of prayer to change your life’.
Following this program reminded me of three key points:
1. I have been so focused on the DO, DO, DO that I forgot the ‘WHY’. I realized I was completely disconnected from my dream and my purpose. I realized I need to get reconnected with my dream and my WHY. I started to journal again.
2. The most beautiful feeling: IM NOT ALONE. I’m being held BY LOVE and I’m held IN LOVE. A LOVE that is greater than my own thinking.
3. There is a master plan bigger that my own understanding and I’m an important part of it. My job is to have faith and do my best.
It’s remarkable, how I feel after a couple of days reconnecting to my dream and my Higher Power; I feel like I’m ‘high’ all the time, like I’m in a magical movie. No, I’m not high on anything other than Love & Faith.
Have I learned and grown a lot? ABSOLUTELY!
Do I think all this madness is worth it? ABSOLUTELY!
Do I think I will succeed? ABSOLUTELY!
Have you been on a similar situation?
How did you survive?
I would love to read your comments.
I’m very passionate about spirituality, transformation and personal development, have spent many years mentoring from several mentors: Mary Morrissey, Christy Witman, Tony Robbins, John Assaraf, Lisa Sasevich, Nick Ortner, just to name a few. I was certified by Mary Morrissey on the 12-week transformational program called Dream Builder®; as I was going through the program as a client, I took note of the key places to integrate elements from the other systems. My main offer is the Dream Builder® Program with complementary meditations and processes.
