The Future Is Yours To Create
“Should I? Shouldn’t I? Should I? Shouldn’t I?” There I was sitting at my laptop writing my resignation letter and nervous the whole time. Maybe this isn’t a good idea, I’m sure my job will get better, perhaps I should think this over. FORGET IT! I had been thinking about leaving for 2 years, probably longer, complaining with colleagues about our job and wanting to leave. I just couldn’t do that anymore, complain about something for that long and not do something about it. No one forced me to be there, I chose to be there and yet I was complaining like I had no choice. When I really looked at the whole situation about leaving my job, I knew I was afraid and complaining was just a way not to take responsibility for my own life. I decided that I needed to be courageous and trust myself to know that I am capable of having it all and my access to this was to take a risk. So I did. I handed in my resignation letter and that was it. That day set the tone for the rest of my future because I was able to see myself as someone who was courageous, confident, bold and took their life in their own hands. It was the best decision I made because I get to do what I love and I get to learn and grow each and everyday.
Keep in mind that before I left my job I was clear about what I wanted to do. What was stopping me was the risk involved and a fear of failing only to have people say “I told you so.” Yet at a certain point I took control and I created a plan for what I wanted to do, and what I wanted my future to look like. I put my trust in it and went for it!
My question to you is…”when are you finally going to decide how your future is going to go?”
