Taking Chances

Taking Chances blog meme

Life is all about taking chances. Stepping out of your comfort zone is where you will grow and LIVE. If you stay in your everyday, that’s just what it will be. There will be no excitement, no fulfillment, just routine, mundane everyday life.

I write this as I sit on an airplane heading to California to an event called Mega Success. Back in April I took a chance. I had an event of my own scheduled on April 18. It was the first one I was doing at my office, but I was unsure. Unsure of what to talk about, unsure of how to price it, unsure if anyone would show up.

2 weeks prior to the event, my aunt tagged me in an ad on Facebook for a Mega Speaker event on April 18. It was a free event in NYC. I went home that night and told my partner that I wanted to cancel my event and go. He tried to talk me out of it. Told me I already scheduled mine. What would I really learn. I said if I go and learn one thing I am already ahead of the game. So I went with my gut, and I postponed my event until the following week.

I headed into the city that morning, having no clue what was in store. It was one of the best days for my career! The value of this free event was priceless. I learned more in that one day about becoming a motivational speaker, and a best selling author than I had in all the time I have been heading on this path.

Of course the free event came with a price tag. One that I would’ve never ever paid if the offer was made to me in a different way. But I felt connected to the speakers, I felt connected to the message and I needed guidance on my path. So I took a chance. I called my partner and asked him if he believed in me. Explained that I was totally being sold, but if I got more than what I got in my free day I would be so ahead of the game.

I left that event and I had a fire under me. I was ready. I was ready to fulfill all of my dreams. I decided I wanted to write a journal. A book that the reader could use as a space to manifest their every desire, the way that I started, but with guidance. Guidance in verbiage, and thought. Guidance through spiritual laws and encouragement. I wanted to be a best seller. I wanted my message to reach the world and change it for the better.

In less than 2 months time, I finished my book. I went to the first event to my coach’s house, an event that I purchased at the free event, and there I met an angel named Nate. He told me that if I wanted to self publish, it was pretty easy to do so through Amazon. So I left there with a call to action. I did the research, I bought the package and on October 27, 2017, my book 31 Days of Gratitude – Create the Life you Desire was released onto Amazon and on November 3, 2017 I made it to the Best Seller list!

All because I took a chance. All because I quieted the outside noise and the opinions of others, even the one person who has my back completely and chose to follow my gut, and go for it! Here I am! Excited to share my message with the world and in love with all the happiness and joy this book will bring to the readers. Stay tuned to see what I am doing in California!
