Good morning and happy Monday! Welcome to another episode of the This is What it Takes Podcast. Today we’re talking about Letting go of what’s not working.
Let’s just start with the fact that it does not matter where you come from or what you’ve been through in your life if you want to have something bigger and better. The only way it does actually matter is if you reconcile with the facts: this happened to me, it’s okay, and I’m learning from it so I can use it to help others.
Getting through the hardest things
I don’t say that lightly - I know some of you have gone through so many hard things in your life. I know what it means to be passed around from person to person in foster care. I know what it means to be molested as a child, to be beaten and left behind by family members who were supposed to protect and love me, to be turned out and rejected by adults when I needed a place to sleep as a child, letting me go off...
Gosh, the older I get, the more I realize that we all go through some hard stuff, don't we? I mean, all of us do. I used to think that it was just me and that I had to hide so much of who I was to be accepted by other people.
The couple that I interviewed for this week's episode have gone through so much stuff on their own and then came together in a way that makes sense to me. They figured it out, THEN they met and they really have pulled it all together in their business and their relationship. I know they're still figuring it out, haha, but they're on this path to helping people that is beautiful to me. They run a couple of really cool businesses (links below) and are travelling the country as I type this and running their business from their computers. So cool.
We talk about:
Welcome back to the What it Takes Podcast and happy Monday. It’s the beginning of the week and I am thrilled to be back here with you on this beautiful day. I’ve always negated the idea of a plan B. I don’t like the idea of a cop out or an easier way lurking behind some corner, pretending to be a life raft, but really is a way of saying “it’s okay if my dream doesn’t work out, I’ll always have this other thing.” Having a back up plan just gives you a reason to say that if it doesn’t work out, it’s because you never really wanted it anyway. And I really should have prefaced that with the fact that our dreams change often, and something you wanted 15 years ago doesn’t have to be something you really want now or you can’t change your dream at the drop of a hat, if that’s what you want to do. But pick something and see it through.
Pick one thing and see it through
