Everything you want is on the other side of fear.
Today I sit before you crying tears of joy, having earned top rank already in a company that I've only been with for two months. I've maxed my compensation plan, and I've grown a team of leaders that has surpassed anything I could have ever imagined. I'm toasting with champagne and planning a vacation with my boyfriend just because.
And to believe I was literally shaking when I had to tell people I was leaving Beachbody.
I cried as I sent messages out to those closest to me in fear of what they'd say. It took me about an hour to write what I considered to be a perfectly crafted letter, and then it took me about another 30 minutes to actually hit send. I thought I was going to puke. That, or faint.
I received a few messages back... some appreciative and well-wishing, some being polite though it was clear they had no plans of staying in touch, some upset, and some just flat out didn't respond.
I could have let those emotions and those fears of rejection overwhelm me and change my mind. And at first, for a few minutes, I contemplated my decision. But then I realized a few important things.
I have done nothing wrong by choosing to think of me first. And to stick around in a company that no longer fit my lifestyle or my goals, to stick around in a company that was breaking my soul and my bank account, to stick around in a company because other people thought I should, to stick around in a company that was slowly making it harder for their independent distributors to make a buck... well, that's the exact opposite of what I preach on a daily basis.
All this because of wine.
Because I chose to follow my heart, my passion, my future, my goals, financial freedom, a growing opportunity, and a simple product that will never go out of style (and if anything keeps getting bigger!). I am finally HOME.
I am finally ALIVE.
I am truly THANKFUL.
I'm getting ready to live my best life yet, expand my business internationally in the next 2 months, train my team to duplicate this success, and drink a few glasses of free high end wine to celebrate. My door is open, because the best kinds of wine are those shared with friends.
