Picture this: a regular day, going through the motions, but deep inside, a yearning for something more. That's where my journey began. It was a quiet whisper from my soul, urging me to explore my passions and make a difference in people's lives. I took that nudge as a sign to step out of my comfort zone and embark on a life-changing adventure. I just didn’t know what that adventure would entail. Now I would have never thought that I would have ended up blogging or being a coach. Especially being a coach. It wasn’t something that I thought about as a career choice and I can say that I didn’t really know anything about it. I did know that I wanted to do something that I enjoyed and I wanted to help people to be a better version of themselves.

I knew that to truly make an impact, I needed to equip myself with the right tools. The question was what were those tools? I bounced around from idea to idea trying to find my way. I can say when you are trying to find yourself after having several life-changing events happen in your life, things can get hard. Don’t be hard on yourself. Ride the wave and go with the process that life is taking you on. At some point, you will stumble upon what you were searching for. In my journey to find myself, I came upon coaching services that were there to guide “lost souls” to their destination. The type of questions that were asked of me really sent my brain on a ride of my life. Discovering the answers took me some time and deep diving into myself and how I saw my life and purpose. The more coaching I received for myself, the more I noticed that this was something that I wanted to do. It was something had resonated with me in a way that allowed me to take a closer look at how to break into the world of coaching.

That's when I decided to pursue coaching certifications. I didn’t know at first what kind of coach I wanted to be. It was something that I had to discover as I took the ride along the road to learning about what it truly was to be a coach. One thing I can say is that it is ok to change your mind. No matter how many times it happens, do it and do it again until you are happy. Never let anyone tell you differently. I dove headfirst into intensive training programs, devouring knowledge about personal development, mindset shifts, and the art of transformation. It was a thrilling experience, pushing me to grow and evolve in ways I never thought possible. The more I learned, the more I began to adjust my views and what kind of coach is really meant for me to be. And to be totally honest, I am still adjusting as I continue my ever-growing education and knowledge in the coaching field.

As I delved deeper into my studies, a remarkable realization hit me: my calling was not just about acquiring certifications; it was about tapping into the power within. I discovered that coaching was not just a career path; it was an extension of who I am—a natural-born encourager and motivator. It was a beautiful fusion of my passions and purpose, and it ignited a fire in my soul.

Taking that leap of faith and starting my coaching journey required immense courage. I had to overcome self-doubt, societal expectations, and the fear of the unknown. But with every step I took, I gained more confidence. I realized that I was meant to make a difference, and my unique voice and experiences were my superpowers. I embraced my calling with open arms, ready to empower and inspire others. Being able to embrace your calling and be the force that you were meant to be is something that takes a lot. Congratulate yourself because stepping into your light can be one the scariest things that you could do. The world around you will have plenty to say and opinions have a way to alter what is being said to yourself. Never let outside influences shift your dreams.

Now, as a certified coach, I have the privilege of walking alongside incredible individuals on their own transformative journeys. It's a joy to witness their growth, celebrate their victories, and help them navigate through challenges. Each success story is a testament to the power of having the courage to pursue your calling and the incredible transformations that can unfold when you follow your true path.

My friends, I hope my journey has inspired you to have the courage to embrace your calling, whatever it may be. Don't let fear or doubts hold you back. Embrace your passions, seek knowledge, and step into your power. Your calling is waiting for you, and the world needs your unique gifts. And as always, remember to stay true to yourself, believe in your abilities, and have the courage to make your dreams a reality.

Remember, you have the power to create the life you desire. Let's embark on this journey together! Book with me today and let me help you to live your life within your purpose.

And as always, stay hustling, my friends.
