I got an email today with the subject line “Transform Your Life in Just One Year.” This got me to thinking, hmmm, really, seriously…one year, WHY?
I have helped clients make major transformations and I have made some myself. Like a major income increase, losing over 60 pounds, starting in a new business with no experience and making it successful, and moving from one city to another.
None of them took a year. Although some of them definitely seemed insurmountable when I started.
One of the biggest steps is getting started. Don’t use up time waiting to get started. You deserve the life you want now!
So what are you ready to transform in your life?
Sometimes an idea strikes me with so much passion and energy I know I have to do it.
I gotta get real. Not that I wasn’t before but I still had those pieces of me I didn’t share. You know the ones, the part of our story we are most vulnerable about and our big desires for the future that are a little scary.
Being real isn’t a requirement for success, but it is where the good stuff happens, it is what makes success even better. Being real enables us to touch hearts deeper, our own and others. It is what enables deep connection and deep fulfillment.
I’ve made a commitment to get real, to share more of the real me and to help more people in a bigger way than I ever have before.
I’ve made that commitment and I know I have to do it, but that does not make it easy; it’s hard to be real about what we want and do what it takes to get it. It’s even harder to reveal it to others.
I’ve coached people for over ten years, I’ve interviewed countless radio show and podcast guests who’ve shared their knowledge, I’ve read hundreds of books, had many great mentors and been fortunate to learn from some of the top leaders in self development. Yet, even with all of that knowledge and experience it’s sometimes hard for me to be real and raw.
When I started to write this blog post I experienced personally just how hard it is to jump into being real. It’s so much easier to put it off for another day, to wait until after the weekend, after the holiday, or until a new year or new month, etc. It’s so much easier to find something else that needs to be done rather than work on what is really important. But that is one of the very things that keeps us from getting what we want. I’m not willing to settle for less than I want and I have a hunch you don’t want to either.
What Did It Take?
I had made a decision and a commitment, so what did I do to keep going when it got hard?
I got started, even though I could not see all the steps.
I asked for help, something we often think we shouldn’t do, but it’s one of the biggest keys to success. With that help, I was able to see it differently and break down the steps to make it easier.
I began taking those steps. It still felt scary, but now I had momentum and a feeling of accomplishment which is what keeps me going.
In the coming weeks I will be sharing more of me, more of my story (including the story behind the pics above), more of what drives me to be so passionate about helping others and more about what works to create the life you really want to live.
It won’t always be pretty and it won’t always be perfect, but that is not what I’m here for. If you want pretty, polished and poised, this isn’t it. If you want real, raw, and ready, this is it.
It’s time to get real about living the life you want to live, to get real about what you want and real about what you’re willing to do to get it.
It’s time to get real results. Are YOU ready?
I’d love to have a REAL conversation with YOU, send me a message at edie@ ediegalley.com if you’re up for it.
