Ha! Boy does that feel weird to say!
What did I do to celebrate? I chopped off a good six inches of my hair. New year equals a new ‘do.
This birthday marks four years since leaving college (and the quarter life crisis that followed). Three and a half years since I started this blog and discovered entrepreneurship. Two years since I started coaching. One year since a major re-branding (and in many ways the official “launch” of my coaching business). And finally, eight months since my last day at a regular job!
It is with immense gratitude that I write this post today. Without you all I would not be where I am. I may be the one preaching a message of hope for millennials, but you are the ones who take it into your daily lives and share it with others. You are the reason I do all of this.
And so without further ado the annual birthday roundup of lessons learned in the last year.
- Leaps of faith get easier with practice.
- Sometimes we need to stop reading the manual and just drive the fucking car. Stop thinking you need more education for your next endeavor and just start doing it.
- Being open and flexible will yield tremendous amounts of opportunity.
- The key to abundance is trust. Keep the faith even when shit hits the fan.
- There is an infinite amount of possibility in life. It’s up to you to tune into it.
- The only real goal I have in life is to just keep going.
- When you commit to your mission people may drop off, but chances are they weren’t meant to be there at this time anyway. Make room for the new ones coming your way.
- Launching the shit out of something has more to do with how you can be of service rather than how much money you can make.
- When things fall apart it’s because there’s something way better on the way.
- Sometimes it’s easier to forgive everyone at once rather than focusing on the one person who fucked you up.
- There is no such thing as certainty.
- If you don’t go after what you want you’re doing not just yourself a disservice, you are also being a disservice to everyone around you.
- Forget the idea of manifesting the man (or woman), the car, or the money. Instead focus on dwelling in your own greatness. Feel good and everything else will fall into place.
- Your body knows when it’s time to drop something for good.
- When you are ready for something, the people you need show up.
- Boundaries are good.
- It’s okay to let people help you.
- You always know way more than you think you do. Give yourself some credit!
- If you can’t find what you’re looking for, create it.
- The time you think something should happen may not be the right time at all. Be open to better options.
- At some point you’re going to have to learn how to say no.
- Go for what you want, have an open heart about it, and watch how people flock to help you.
- Good is good enough. Leave perfectionism at the door.
- Moments of stillness are golden. Make time for them.
- There is plenty of room for others to join the lifestyle business party. Don’t hide your gifts just because you think someone out there beat you to it.
- It’s okay to own how good you are at something.
It is my hope to continue with this mission of providing a positive place where millennials can seek refuge in a new world of work.
That’s why I’m psyched to introduce my latest project – the Millennial Mastermind Business Roundtable.
I’ve experienced this myself multiple times as well, which is why I decided to create a monthly event where millennial entrepreneurs of all kinds can network, brainstorm, mastermind, and get affordable business coaching from me.
It’s the only online mastermind group created for millennials by millennials.
The event is online so anyone anywhere can join in.
The next event is April 15th at 7 p.m. and is limited to 5 people. Click here for more information.
