When I was a Child and Youth Worker in 2004 I really wanted to go back to school to become a teacher.
This was the response that I heard from people:
“There aren’t any jobs.”
“You’ll be stuck on the supply list forever.”
“It’s too competitive.”
“You won’t have money to support yourself.”
“You can’t work part time and go to school.”
“It’s too expensive to go back to school.”
“You will regret it”.
Despite the “advice” from people around me I decided to do it!
I applied and got in to the program. I finished school and got an interview right away. I got hired on at the school board and got a year long term position. The next year I was hired on full time. Just like that.
Fast forward 12 years. I decided I wanted to leave teaching and become a full time coach.
This was the response I heard from people,
“Are you crazy?”
“You’re giving up job security?”
“What about your pension and benefits?”
“What about your daughters- You’re a single mom- what if you can’t support them?”
“It’s selfish to take a risk like that! You’re not thinking about your girls!”
“Do it part time! You’re not thinking straight!”
“You will regret it!”
O.K….there were some supporters! But the majority were not!
This is what I want to share with you.
Whether it’s your health you want to take on, a relationship that’s not working, a job that is unsatisfying, a new haircut or home renovation… Do the thing people say, “You will regret”.
If your gut is screaming, “Listen to me!” Pay attention!
That feeling we label as “anxiety”, is our intuition telling us we are meant for more.
Food, booze, pills, sex, gambling- will not take away that anxious feeling for long!
When you think of the possibility of that “Thing” and if it lights up your heart- DO IT!
People innately don’t have the courage to take bold action towards living their best life. Our primitive brains are wired to stay comfortable and “safe”. It makes sense that people respond that way even when they see others taking risks.
People stay stuck in their own fear and project their fears on to you- BE STRONG!
Trust your gut. If you want something- GO GET IT!
I’m NOT saying quit your job tomorrow.
I’m not saying kick that relationship to the curb.
I am saying if you aren’t satisfied in an area of your life don’t be afraid to take action towards a life you want to live.
Do the thing others say you will regret.
Listen to your gut. Listen to your heart. If you are willing to do the work, there is nothing you can’t do.
