In April 2015, when I made the conscious decision to become a business coach, I remember that Saturday morning that the wheels started turning. All of a sudden I was receiving countless information about how to become a coach; how to transfer the knowledge I already had; where to get training for coaching. It was like if I thought about it and a flood gate of information started to fall in my lap. I did not realise it at the time but what I was putting out into the Universe was being answered.
I did a ton of research; I started school again; I got on the phone with international coaches; I found an awesome accountability partner and eventually I hired my own coach to help me get in the right mindset for this big transformation that was about to take over my life. I signed up clients, I kept on learning and I built a lucrative business in a matter of months so I was able to leave my full time job and start my own business.
There have been ups and downs do not get me wrong, but the journey has been memorable and enlightening. I share all this to say to you that your words have power! Before I left my job, I was already introducing myself as a business coach. In 2015, I started to announce to the world that I would leave my job pretty soon and start my own business. Not much people believed me but then again I had nothing to prove to them! I said it over and over until it became part of my introduction to anyone new that I met.
In October 2016, as I cleared out some junk out of my now home office, a piece of paper fell out of a book I was reading last year. It said- By May 1st, 2016, I will be a full time coach! Seeing those words on paper brought tears to my eyes. Why? Because I wrote that in April 2015 and tucked it away but I had let the Universe know what I wanted and it answered. I officially left my job on May 9th 2016, just 8 days than my written date but by May 1st 2016 I was a full time business coach!
What you desire and what you think and speak will become your reality. Use your words wisely and be sure about what you ask the Universe to deliver. Mine was not a stroke of luck but a strong belief and conviction in myself that this is the life meant for me.
