Can’t watch a video right now? No worries – here is the transcript for ya! 🙂
I go on a morning walk with my dog most mornings. Today it was this foggy, overcast day. It was beautiful because the leaves are just starting to come out, and it finally is starting to feel a little bit like spring around here. It has been freezing lately. I don’t know what’s going on, but it is May in Virginia, and it should be warm! I am definitely looking forward to warmer weather.
While on my walk, I was thinking about the power of intention. Before I left my corporate job, if someone had told me, “You need to look into the power of intention,” I would have looked at them and kind of thought they were… I don’t know. Not that I’m saying I’m judgemental, but I don’t know if I would have actually believed it. And my guess is many of you may also be in that boat. And I don’t blame you. It definitely is a little bit on the woo-woo train.
I was looking back through my B-school notes. And before I left my job… By the way, in April, I had absolutely no idea that I was going to leave my job in July. We were doing some dreamlining. And we were talking about what we wanted to get out of our business and my vision. So, what I wrote… Of course, now I’m going to have a hard time finding it. I should have done this before I started the video.
It was crazy what I wrote because… Darn it. Where the heck is it? Hold on.
Okay. I’m going to learn how to edit and actually put these videos together. So, let’s see how we do. Alright. I found it. This was a profit clarity module of B-school thing, and it basically is all about clarity equals power.
So, I wrote down my business and personal goals, or what I wanted out of B-school. And I said I want to create both residual income streams and make time for one-on-one clients. I love to work one-on-one and would like to continue to do that as part of my business model. I would like to gain confidence, speaking in front of groups, and feeling grounded.
I would like to eventually feel confident leaving my job and being able to do this full time. By the end of 2016 — and mind you, this was written in March of 2015, I would like to be able to have enough to leave my corporate job. By the end of 2015, I would like to have paid off my car and my IIN loan.
I would like to have my independence, not feel caught up in the rat race, and live the life that gives me and others joy. I want to live by my Papa’s last words to me: “Pursue the things you enjoy.”
Now, what’s crazy about me writing this down is I completely forgot about this. It was in my mind. I definitely wanted these things to happen. But when I look back, I had some really amazing things happen over the next few months. I was able to leave my job in July. I had so many clients. And I wasn’t planning on that. And then, also, I was able to pay off my loan because of all my clients. And I paid off my car because of my clients. And I was able to leave my job. [Read more…]
