There I was in the middle of giving my boss a high five when I realized that stress was going to kill me.
I was acting like I had it all together, but I didn’t.
Truth was, I hadn’t slept much, my head hurt, and I felt so lost and tired.
Back then I believed that non-stop stress was normal and that I had to hustle and work hard to be successful.
I also believed that “I had to do it right.”
It’s like I was constantly trying to prove that I was good enough. And when I realized that I couldn’t take the pressure and stress anymore, I thought that was MY weakness.
I’d followed what I thought to be the route to happiness: Get a good education, a good job, make good money, find a partner, be happy.
But this route led to more sleepless nights than to happiness.
SOMETHING WITHIN ME WANTED TO BE SEEN AND HEARD AGAIN.
I wanted a sense of freedom.
I wanted to feel like me -- the real me that was fun, creative, adventurous, and optimistic. The me who didn’t wear a fake smile or try to be someone for anyone.
Then I heard Wayne Dyer say, “There are no rules in this life” and something in me came alive again.
I knew, on a very deep level, the truth of what he said.
I DIDN’T HAVE TO CONTINUE ON THIS PATH. I COULD CREATE MY OWN RULES.
This was terrifying and thrilling at the same time. I knew I had to quit. If I was on a train called “hustle” I was jumping off.
That was the beginning of finding my way back to myself and following my calling to become a coach and help others find their way too.
