For over eight years I have been sharing my life journey and the things (call them “ahas”) I’ve learned along the way. With so much negative “chat” these days, I am grateful to experience success in both my personal and professional life. What’s even more gratifying is the feedback I get from others
Over the past summer, God used three people to tell me that I needed to start charging for my time. For example, Michelle, the PAL facilitator recommended this to me a year ago. I was flattered but I dismissed it. I thought she was simply trying to encourage me.
If you read my story, you know before Avon, I worked in corporate America where it feels like everything requires a degree. Without a piece of paper showing my investment of tens of thousands of dollars (plus years in college), I felt I didn’t have the credentials for the position and the pay that would come with it. It did not matter that I could do the work. The message was clear – don’t even try for it.
This is why I am an entrepreneur. It doesn’t require a degree.
However, I have had so many people tell me I that I give them what they need to evaluate and rethink their lives. I knew I could do more. I wanted to do more. The only thing holding me back was the limiting belief that a degree was necessary to do this. I needed to overcome that belief.
I began asking God what He said. This led me on a journey to find a Life Coach Certification program. He pointed me to Transformation Academy. This was back in August and throughout the whole GLS (Global Leadership Summit) – the message was so loud and clear that the following Monday I enrolled!
I set a goal to complete two out of the four certifications by October 31st. As crazy as October was – I achieved my goal! The two certifications completed are REBT (Rational Emotive Behavioral Techniques) and CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Techniques).
There are two more certifications needed to be a Certified Master Mindset Coach. Despite the end-of-year holiday rush, I plan to accomplish this by the end of 2021. I’m confident of completing my goal because I now know how to set boundaries with my time.
Back in October, I talked about outcomes and what is the best that could happen. As you can see – I took the first step and enrolled. When you look for the best that can happen, it makes the first step so much easier!
