In 1995, I was recruited by the Sara Lee Corporation as Brand Manager for one of their boring panty hose lines. This was not my idea of a good time.
I wanted something different, something more. At the time I couldn’t really explain what it was. The only thing I knew with certainty was that I wanted to dance.
My job paid really well, but I was miserable. After five months of complete unhappiness, I quit. I lived in “survival mode” for a while. You can read more about that in my book, Rich by Choice Poor by Habit.
Today I know how liberating it is to do what I love.
I earn a living as a tap dancer.
If you’re feeling trapped, fearful, or doubtful, write down what you really want. Jot down all the worst things that could happen. Make note of all your excuses. Get honest with yourself.
There is no easy formula for making life the way you want it to be. There are no good shortcuts.
Information and resources are everywhere. Your job is to tap into something that resonates with you, and gets you past whatever is holding you back.
Fear is a big one… at least it was for me.
You can’t let FEAR or anything else paralyze you. Start small and keep going. Usually the stress and anxiety, once you get moving, is not as bad as you anticipate. You can handle more.
This quotes, more than any other, helped me to change my life:
“Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
