In June 2021 I attended Tony Robbins’ Unleash the Power Within conference and it completely shifted my perspective on what I thought I wanted. It was truly a life-changing experience for me that I think every human needs to experience for themselves at least once! If you’ve followed me for a while, you may have seen my old blog (fitnessbeautytravel) where I focused on my makeup and fitness business aspirations. I originally signed up for UPW because I had this dream in mind for my makeup business, and thought I needed a little push to get it going.
I went into UPW thinking I would gain clarity and break through the things that were holding me back professionally, and I came out with much more than I bargained for! My entire young adult life I have struggled with indecision when it comes to the path I’m meant to take. I loved health and fitness, I loved psychology and helping others, and I loved doing makeup and seeing the looks on happy faces afterward. I always felt like I had to choose ONE passion, and I struggled with that because I didn’t want to make the wrong choice. This resulted in several periods where I would have false starts career-wise. I would get all amped up about a new direction, then self-sabotage because I wasn’t sure it was the right thing for me.
What I’ve learned is that I don’t HAVE to choose just one of my passions to do for the rest of my life or even for this next chapter. All of these passions have a common thread. Though I love all of those things, they are just passions. I explained this to Joseph McClendon the 3rd, and he shared a perspective that Tony had shared with him. There is a difference between a passion and a purpose. A passion is something you love, a purpose is something that drives you. For me, the common thread among all of my passions is looking, feeling, and being my best – mentally, physically, and emotionally. What DRIVES me is sharing what I learn along the way to help others to do the same for themselves. Making a positive impact on others, in the world.
I had felt anxious about “giving up” my makeup focus because I worked incredibly hard to earn my certification and license to practice. Joseph said – “sometimes when we lose our dream, we find our destiny” – CHILLS! I know now that this is who I am and who I want to be. If you knew me in the past, you would have witnessed a few other periods of my life were I was super focused on all of this too. Inevitably something in life would happen and I would fall right back to comfortable patterns. What this means is that this version of me has always been there, in the back of my mind, waiting for me to push through the BS and fear of failure and make happen. I’ve come close a few times.
To ensure that this cycle doesn’t repeat, I’ve invested in Tony’s Mastery University program so I can keep moving forward with full immersion. I was so excited to see my swag box come in with a beautiful journal to document my growth! While I wait (rather impatiently) for Date with Destiny in December, I’ll be continuing to work on my Neuroencoding Method of Coaching certification with Joseph McClendon the 3rd.
I’m so excited to see what the next few years bring! No looking back now! Thank you so much for joining me for this crazy ride. I can’t wait to settle into this next chapter of my life where I will be able to share all that I’ve learned with you.
With love and light,
