Staying Small Helps No One
Do you have a dream in your heart? Something that you want to accomplish? A passion that burns within your soul and is bursting to come out into the light? Do you expend so much energy keeping it all inside and staying small because you are afraid of what others might think or maybe you have already labeled that dream impossible? I want you to take a moment to think about your life….REALLY think! Why are you here on this earth? What is your purpose? Were you made to stay small? How can you share your gifts and talents with the world if you are staying small?
Let me step into the light and share a little bit about my life. Right now, I’m a Radiologist by day and a super hero Life Coach by night (and weekends). I love both of my jobs and I’m pretty happy. However, that was not always the case. For years my dream of being a Life Coach was just a little nagging thought in the back of my head. I hardly allowed myself to even think of it and never shared my ideas. I focused upon doing all the right things…working hard, being a mother, paying the bills, saving money for my kids’ college and my retirement. However, the year I turned fifty was a wakeup call for me. I thought, “Sonia, you are officially in the second half of your life. When you are on your deathbed at 100, what do you want to have accomplished? You need to start working on your dreams. It’s now or never!” I decided to step out of the radiology dark room and into the light. I decided it was time to reach for my goals and not be concerned about what others thought. Some people were excited for me and others thought I was crazy. The majority of people did not care either way.
Dr. Wayne Dyer always said, “Don’t die with your music still in you.”
Where ever you are in your life right now, just start. You can start small; you can start big, but just start! First, identify your dream or goal. Next, think of one thing that you can do right now that will bring your closer to achieving your dreams. My first step is starting this blog; getting my ideas out there and making a difference. I look forward to changing, growing and learning in the coming years. The time is now! Go for it!
