Take the leap of faith for God's sake!!!
I’m sure you’re saying to yourself right now, “great, another unrelatable person telling me to believe in myself blah blah blah.”
But wait give us a chance! WE HAVE SOME GOOD STUFF HERE!
We’re not telling you to “drop everything and go”. I mean...where are you going anyway? Lol. Seriously though, I’m realizing that’s kind of strange to say, but the point is...there’s nowhere to go for many of us!
Many of us aren’t fortunate enough to just drop everything and go follow our dreams. We have major responsibilities. Right! (Unless if you decided to cut your stress in half by living a minimalist life as we do, but that’s a whole other story!)
This story is about working towards your goals steadily over time. So when that “leap of faith” day shows itself. You have somewhere to...GO.
Are you catching my drift at all? I feel a bit like I’m talking in code.
I A M N O T A R O B O T. Promise :)
What I am trying to say is…
FIRST BE. THEN DO. THEN HAVE.
Let us show you what we mean.
Take our life for example, this is something hard to say but, we used to be broke!
Like really broke!!!
Like at the end of each month less than $100 to our name broke!
If you are (or were ever broke) you probably did something like this once, twice or maybe even thrice in your life’s time.
You needed money badly, like right now… like right, RIGHT now. So you look for a job, if you don’t have one, or a higher paying job if you do.
If successful, then you are “good”... for a while.
Eventually the bank account drops again and the bills pile up. You need more so you look for a higher paying job, multiple jobs or a higher paying position... or you do other less “respectable things”.
Maybe you play the lottery, bet on sporting events or any other of the millions of avenues of “the lottery mentality”.
In this quest to no longer be poor it almost seems as if the "hole" you were in has somehow gotten deeper.
Even if you have a bit more money, you are pulling tons of hours, doing things that aren’t really "you" and definitely not feeling rich or wealthy.
In fact, you probably feel “poorer” than ever.
We used to talk about this all the time when we were “poor”.
Our convos would always highlight our lack of self worth. From our perspective, we were not good enough in many ways and certainly not worthy enough to have money.
We even convinced ourselves that money is the route of all evil.
NOW, it almost sounds silly to say that, but it WAS our reality and we really thought this way.
