Sometimes life is about risking everything for a dream no one can see but you.
This perfectly sums up my start to the new year! I have taken a huge step (some may say a risky step) in my career – I resigned from my part time job so that I can have all my focus on KickStart!
This part time job had absolutely nothing to do with my university degree and Exercise Physiology. Well, the most degree-related task that I was assigned there was working on the branch’s Workplace Health & Safety. Which I actually really enjoyed. But it was definitely time for me to move on and invest myself fully into my business.
And to look after my mental health.
I haven’t been happy since I’ve been working there. I would in a terrible mood on the nights before I had to go in there for work. It was taking a toll on me and, of course, my husband noticed all of these things, so it was taking a toll on him too.
I know that my husband has my back 110%! He is my rock and my inspiration! I don’t think people realise how hard Adrian works! He’s part owner of Spring into Fitness, the East Fremantle Colts Head Coach and, somehow, has time in between to help me with things for KickStart.
And you know the reason why he works so hard ..? He’s passionate about what he does! He chased after his dream and is living it! And he continues to chase after his dreams. They change and evolve! So we need to change and evolve with them.
I think it is incredibly important to chase after your dreams and live your passion! This is key to happiness in all aspects of life!
What’s the old saying ..? Love what you do and you won’t work a day in your life!
It’s true! There will still be hard times throughout your journey but loving what you do will make it so much easier to persevere through those tough times. And your passion will make you work harder and give you that drive to want to achieve more.
You will have self-doubt. I had a serious case of self-doubt the other day. It was the day after my last day at my part time job. I felt completely overwhelmed by my ideas for the business. I was thinking: “I can’t do this; it’s too much, that’ll be way too much work!”.
Boy oh boy, did Adrian bring down a major truth bomb! He essentially said KISS – keep it simple stupid! I was trying to complicate my idea too much! I just needed to bring it back, start off smaller then we can work on expanding it out. My brain sometimes runs so quickly through different ideas, I can’t keep up. Adrian was able to give me the clarity I needed to calm down and re-evaluate my thinking.
It is so important to believe in yourself and believe in your dreams (even better if you have someone – partner, friend, mum, dad – to believe in you as well). If you do believe, it will make it so much easier to get to where you want to go, and you will be motivated to do what needs to be done to make your dreams into a reality.
