I think we can all say that we would love to make six-figures in one year. Even better, what about six-figures in one year as an entrepreneur? Well, Melyssa went ahead and killed both dreams. She made six-figures in one month. Are you kidding me?? Rewind. What am I doing with my life when there is THAT much opportunity to make money while doing something I love?
Minimizing doesn't mean go through every single item you own and start throwing things away like a crazy person. It's a journey and it does take time. But the point is to clean away the areas in your life where you feel weighed down or unhappy. Minimizing has made me feel lighter in many ways. It can be in your relationships, your clothes, your food, or your time.
I had done everything by the book but was completely torn inside.
Have you ever felt that you have so much to offer the world; to inspire, motivate, and live your life free and in purpose, yet you are stifled? Trust me.
I have been there.
For over a year and a half, I suffered in silence from Anxiety Disorder and Depression.
After living "comfortably" in a box of societal norms, I realized how crazy I was becoming. Post college, I began falling into this deep dark hole of career-depression (a term I made up right now in this post). For many of us, we realize how unfulfilled we are 3-5 years into our professional years. Some sooner. Some later. But we figure it out. (If you are that person who's found passion in your work right out of college - lucky you. It's grim out here for the most of us).
I recently came across a case study done by King’s College in London on how “Overthinking Worriers are Probably Creative Geniuses“. As comical and true this might be, over thinking opportunities make it hard for us to just say “no”. We think any opportunity that allows us to create should have us screaming yes! But in many cases this isn’t true. What we don’t realize is that taking on too much will lack the quality of products we produce for the world.
I made a fairly hefty monetary investment. Not in a new home or a new car. In a design course at a career school. Doesn't sound extraordinary, does it? We all went through school and paid our way for an education. But see - I'm 26 with two degrees (undergraduate and graduate), over three years of work experience... and I'm an accountant/financial consultant. Sooo here I am trying to start over in a field that has no correlation to a financial statement.
