3 years ago after much soul searching I decided to live my life differently. I worked with a coach during that transition. At first, I was reluctant to even dream about what I really wanted in my life.
I knew I wanted to have more time with the kids, and practice medicine on my own terms. I was having a hard time expressing it. I was used to wearing business as a badge of honor, and making that shift was difficult.
I had thoughts like:
What will she (my coach) think of me?
What will others think about my decision?
Who am I to dare to dream?
Why do I have to be different
I’m a failure for not wanting to do things like everybody else
I’ll disappoint my patients
I’ll disappoint my colleagues
I don’t have enough money to risk changing jobs
The bills have to get paid
These thoughts got me feeling:
LIKE A FRAUD
GUILTY for no apparent reason
Like an Impostor
Here is what my coach said to me that transformed my life.
GIVE YOURSELF PERMISSION TO GO ALL OUT FOR WHAT YOU WANT
WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK OF YOU IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS
I then gave myself permission to explore new possibilities which led to self experimentation.
I started self educating by reading books, listening to podcasts, listening to audiobooks, watching, and youtube videos.
Then I had my AHA moment. The key to living life on my own terms is financial freedom. That lead to me learning more about personal finance, learning from a financial coach, and working with a certified financial planner.
As a result, I came up with a financial blueprint to paying off my student loans, other debt, and a wealth building plan which I follow till this day. I paid off my student loans, redesigned my life, and career on my own terms without the guilt, and mind drama.
Is there something you need to do for yourself that you’re afraid or hesitant to do?!
I’m here to offer you the same advice.
GIVE YOURSELF PERMISSION TO BE YOUR AUTHENTIC SELF. START WITH WHY.
It has worked for me, my clients, and friends. You might be the next lucky person who is ready for this message.
