Until this year I thought that the only way to make a good living meant working 50 hours for a job that did not fulfill me personally. Here is what I found out, and how you can live an abundant life too while doing what feeds your soul!
As responsible adults we know that there needs to be an income source to pay our bills, care for ourself, and family. But how do we do this while doing what we love, what does abundance mean, and how can we achieve it.
1- It is not a Cliche, It is the Only Truth- Imagine and You can!
Since 2013 I have been dreaming about owning my yoga business. I started telling everyone about my "5-year-plan". One by one started to take my daily personal practice to the next level by getting my Yoga Teacher Training, added reiki, and prenatal trainings to support. Started to teach at CPY, and today I can finally say that I am doing my dream career.
I did not really have a business plan, or set schedule on how to achieve this goal. But I had one thing and that was my burning desire to be yoga instructor and to do something that helped people become their better selves. And I imagined that I can succeed.
2- Get Up and Take an Action Everyday
Even though I have scheduled yoga classes, I knew that my college loans, and other payments were not going to be met just by doing the minimum. So just like when I used to do when I was the national sales director, I kept waking up at 6:45 and got to work. I went out, shook hands, took many no's and some yes's. Even on days I was not feeling it or on the weekends I did something.
Everyday I work non-stop, but because I love what I do it feels like a hobby, and each action yield to the other and now I can say that I have sustainable business.
3- Don't Listen to the Naysayers
Naysayer can be yourself too, if you truly believe that you have your passion in hands, just go for it and listen to your gut, unlearn the bad advise you learned.
There will also be others that do not believe in you, and that is OK. It only takes one person to believe in you to receive abundance and you are that person.
4- Visualize What Abundance Looks Like
Even with someone like me, who has never ending positive outlook to life, there can be more doubts than necessary that you may waste your energy on.
Universe will work to bring you exactly what you see yourself worthy of. So stop visualizing piled bills, or the doors that have not opened yet, rather start visualizing the house of your dreams, lifestyle that you deserve, and the abundance will follow.
5- As the Master We All Admire Says
"Do or do not, there is no try" ~Master Yoda
Now that you know what will feed your soul, and serves you the best, go and do it. Know that the abundance will follow.
