I used to work in McDonalds, and I’m not ashamed to say it.
Working there provided me with an income and the flexibility to gain my first business qualification. I was grateful for the job at the time as it served a great purpose.
It allowed me to keep moving forward towards my goals.
I’ve held many jobs since then and learnt so much. I’ve made countless mistakes, been made redundant and walked away from opportunities because they didn’t feel right for me.
The biggest challenge for me throughout all of it has been to maintain the confidence to not give up. Despite differences of opinion, I’ve been able to still make decisions which felt right to me.
It’s meant that I’ve struggled at times too though as well and had to learn to silence the voices questioning my choices too. I also had to say goodbye to people and places that did not support what felt right.
If you know what you want or even what you want next, you can find a way to make it happen, no matter what you have to do to make it happen. It certainly helps to try and gain clarity on what you genuinely want.
Have you ever noticed that when you’ve been on holiday, you often come back with a fresh perspective and a new motivation?
Don’t be afraid to take time out to get clear! You have to find a way to keep on track with your own life, and if that means questioning and making important decisions, then that’s ok.
If that means daily journaling, doing meditation or taking time out of your busy schedule to walk or go on a break, that’s what is right for you.
If you can visualise what you really want, you will know what you must do to move closer to achieve it. If you don’t know what you want, how can you visualise it and make the changes to gain it?
Try and find some space to reflect this week and visualise what you really want!
