“In order to get from what was to what will be, you must go through what is.” Anonymous
Just when you think you can’t, say to yourself “I can!” In many ways, this journey of launching my coaching business has been many little successes along with my fair share of stumbling blocks. There were times I was so frustrated that I wanted to put this dream in the “I’ll do it tomorrow” pile. The “what is” can be so very painful, often feeling like it lasted a very long time. And then I was reminded either by a friend, a colleague, my coach, or a situation that I had something wonderful to offer the world. Something would happen, like getting a coaching client, finally breaking through my writer’s block, or figuring out a technical issue that gave me a sign of hope. Yes, Tamarra you were meant to do this!
“Good luck is another name for tenacity of purpose.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
What one may think is luck, I know for sure if built on large and small steps along the way. It’s about keeping yourself focused on what you have deemed important and keeping the goal in full view. Many happy returns are coming your way, ones in which you would never anticipate. When looking back over this journey, I have more appreciation for the process.. for it was the process that created a better me.
