Why Should I Take Risks?

 

Today is my second-to-last day of my office job and I’m really really excited. Like I’m so pumped, but I just wanted to talk about the risk that I had to take to get to that point.

Quitting your job is not an easy thing, and I had a lot of people doubting me, and I had my own thoughts doubting me – that’s usually the the loudest, your own thoughts.

Your own worst enemy is in your own head. And I had all these thoughts about what if you don’t make it / your business isn’t big enough / you’re not going to be successful / who are you to deserve that kind of success or deserve that kind of life.

But I got to that point where I made that jump. I got to a point where I couldn’t add any more classes, I couldn’t put any more energy into my business. I was working every day for at least eight hours, plus the travel to get there, all things you have to do and then I wasn’t able to give all of me to my clients, to my classes, into the resources, all the back end stuff that I want to do, so I got to a point where I had to jump, right?

And so I did.

And I quit.

I was absolutely petrified,

I felt like throwing up, I was really nervous and had such a crappy feeling in my stomach. But I did it.
I felt so relieved – like the weight of the world was off my shoulders.
But afterwards I had people going “oh but if you’re going to Europe, how are you gonna pay for all that?” and I was like… I don’t know
And they’re like “oh but how many clients do have, is that going to cover your wage?” No, it’s not actually..
So all these different things came up and I just said you know what, I’m gonna make it work. I have to make it work.
I got to that point where it was – do I continue with my business as it is, OR do I build it to where I want to be?
It’s what I want to do, it’s what I love doing, so why shouldn’t I take that risk?
So if you’re at that point where something is at that breaking point, you’ve got to take that risk, right?
You’ve got to jump.
You’ve got to calculate all the different things that are happening and realize that there’s a point where you have to either keep going or you stay the same.
And you don’t change, you get the same results, the same days and the same life.
If you want to make a change, you’ve got to jump, right?
Just jump, two feet, in the deep end.
Close your eyes if you need to.
Scream the whole way in.

Just two feet, in the deep end.

Jump.
