One day I realized that I was not living the life I wanted and decided to change it. Have you been living the life you want to live? Are you happy? Does what you do for a living fulfill you in the ways you want it to? If not, let’s take a journey together.
Do you know that you deserve to live the life you want?
Do you know that you can literally make this happen? Really, you can. I can help you to create the life you want to be fulfilled and happy, no matter your circumstances.
In 2005, I felt my life was going nowhere fast. I was very discouraged, felt hopeless, and had very little money. I knew I had to make a move. If I were being honest with myself, I knew what that move was, but I did not want to make it.
Today, I am living my life on my terms and in a very happy place. I have been able to take my life from what seemed to be a dark hopeless situation to a place that is so bright I have to wear shades (like the 1986 Timbuk3 song).
You see, a few short years ago were some of the darkest in my life to date.
- I was a single parent.
- I had been fired from four jobs in two years.
- I had very little money to take care of my daughter and myself.
- I was failing at life.
I decided to embark upon the journey of enrolling in a doctoral program to further my education and career. This meant I had to leave my hometown and family, and begin a new life with my then 5-year-old daughter.
The first day I started my doctoral program was the day everything around me started to fall apart, literally. That day was August 29, 2005. The day Hurricane Katrina shook my hometown, New Orleans, LA to its’ core.
Little did I know, this would be the theme of my life for the duration of my doctoral program. There I was, in a new city, just beginning my doctoral career, when my life turned into its’ own hurricane.
As much as I tried to keep everything under control, my life simply became unmanageable.
I became discouraged, depressed, and even more hopeless.
It got to the point where I could not even form a sentence out of my mouth without crying. It was bad. I was in a bad place. And I did not know what to do.
But there was something inside of me that made me keep going. I could not quit.
I felt like I was in the middle of an Olympic-size pool filled with mud. When I turned around to look behind me I saw that I had came too far to turn back, but I still had a very difficult journey to make it to the other side.
Despite all the obstacles in front of me, I kept going. I was bruised, battered, confused, helpless and hopeless, but I didn’t give up. I was determined to see this through.
And thanks to what I discovered along this journey, success was in near sight.
I was able to complete my doctoral program in four years, secured my first tenure-track academic appointment as an Assistant Professor, and was awarded tenure and promotion to Associate Professor within six years.
This was all thanks to my new transformation. Success became a part of my blueprint.
Since then I have had more confidence, which makes me more successful.
I share my story with you to emphasize two points:
1. Failure is a part of the process. You can ALWAYS recover from it.
2. The transformation that I have been through in a few short years is not because I am a lucky person. You do not need lady luck on your side to create the life you want. I went from literally losing everything I had to creating the life I want.
What does this new life look like? It looks like a number of things that are important to me. Those include…
… having job security to be able to support my family…
… believing in myself when no one else did…
… giving myself permission to just be who I was created to be without asking if it was ok…
… having confidence in myself that can be felt as soon as I enter any room…
… time to spend with my daughter…
… and traveling.
What would your new life look like if you could create it? What is important to you at this very moment? Are you ready to create the life you want?
