Today is the day. It’s my LAST day of ordinary corporate life before jumping all-in, full-time into the business that I love. It’s been a long time coming (or so it would seem!). But now it is completely time. Totally time. And I couldn’t be happier about it.

But how did I know that this was the moment, that it was time to jump ALL in?

Because there comes a time where you see it happening. There comes a moment where you know that it is waiting for you, and all you need to do is own it.

The moment where it goes from “that would be cool” to “that absolutely HAS to happen”.

Simple as that.

OK, you might say, SURE it is simple, but when does that moment come?

I’ll tell you. It comes when you’re ready for it.

But here’s the thing: it won’t just show up one day out of the blue clear sky. It just won’t drop into your lap without your even lifting a finger.

You have to do three things: 1) Make room for it in your life, 2) Believe–and I mean BELIEVE–that it will happen, and 3) Take action accordingly. (Inspired action, if you can!)

What do I mean by that? Let me tell you how, one step at a time….

–Make Room For It In Your Life: Start fostering the environment for what you want. Create it, start to immerse yourself in the world of your dreams. Even if it’s just a little bit at a time. Start researching your idea, your topic. Look at the leaders in the industry. Think about how amazing it will be to have what you love to do be your world. Heck, start decorating your living space for the occasion! (I DID! Here’s some pictures to that end). Make what you love to do part of your everyday life, even if it’s just one step at a time.

–Believe–and I mean BELIEVE–that it WILL Happen: OK, this is the part that seems a little bit silly, maybe even delusional. But I can’t stress how important it is. Don’t be timid about what you want. Even if it takes some time to believe it boldly, take it, work up to it, get yourself there to the point where you know that your dream business is coming to you. How do you do this? Well….when what you want is of your HIGHEST good, it can’t help but find you. If you let it. So let it! Not sure what that thing is yet, that business idea that is of your highest good? Try this: just let those feelings in that support your highest state of happiness, peace, and love. (Yeah, I know, hippie talk–but stay with me, here!) Let those feelings come about. Really take them in.

Now ask yourself: what is it that you’d build a business around that includes those kind of feelings, those high-fives from above, those crazy-excited moments? And if you can’t think of anything just yet, that’s OK. Just keep feeling that way. And keep exploring. And taking action. Which brings me to…..

-Take ACTION Accordingly (And the Inspired Kind, if you can!) Do something based on those high-vibes you’re generating. Anything at all. Even if it seems irrelevant, just do it. Sign up for a webinar or a workshop that seems interesting to you. Put up a Social Media post about your idea and ask for feedback. Start shopping for themes for your new website, even if you haven’t decided what it’s gonna be about just yet! (Blu Chic and Elegant Themes are awesome, same for ThemeForest!). Make a phone call to your best friend and tell him or her what you are dreaming about. Reach out to a business owner you admire and ask their advice on something. But keep putting the high energy behind your action–this is the important part.

Does all of that make sense? I’m not saying to lie about where you are nor am I asking you to “fake it ’til you make it”. Just to believe in yourself and in what you dream of doing with your business-to-be….even if you’re not quite sure what that is yet! That you can ALWAYS do, even if your ideas aren’t quite solid yet.

And it’s funny how just making the shift to trusting and believing in yourself and in the Divine Timing of everything that makes taking the action THAT…much…easier. (And THAT much more fun, too!)

SO….in the next few weeks you’ll be hearing a LOT more from me, as well as brand NEW opportunities to work with me, which will be starting NEXT WEEK!

Can’t wait to have you as a part of this journey AND to be a part of yours!

So remember: SPACE–BELIEF–ACTION.

I can’t wait to see it all happen for you, too!

    Glad to hear that! It might not seem like it in some moments, but it really is doable. The patience for it all is key, though, and I think that is often overlooked by a lot of us (myself included–in fact, I forgot to address that in this post! Maybe the next one…).

    Solid advice and you hit the nail on the head. And I love how you not just start with “Believe that it will happen” but you start with “Make room for it in your life”, love that.
    Congratulations for jumping all-in!

      Thank you, Conny! We all hear about both belief and action, but it was important to me to add “create space” because that in itself is also taking big action. 🙂
