My first ever job was in a bank, but I always had a dream of working in the police. When I was 18 I managed to secure a job in the force. I believed that it would give me a sense of meaning, purpose and safety. In fact, it did the opposite. Shortly after joining I realised that actually it was suffocating me. I was bound down by rules, expectations and hierarchy. I was always tired, my life felt out of control and chaotic. I got myself in debt and worked very long hours. My diet was crap and I was constantly exposed to negativity. It was like there was no way out and that what I once thought was a dream career turned out to be like living in a prison. I barely recognized myself.
I then left and went to work for a private corporate firm in the hope that this would be my answer to success and a happy lifestyle. I was sure that this was the right thing to do. Boy was I wrong. It was exactly the same as the police! I was washed out, barely had a life, bored, confused and left feeling worthless.
My work had no real meaning to me. I was now at a crossroads in my life and unsure where I wanted life to take me. All I knew was that I didn’t want to be in the position I was in for the rest of my life. I didn’t want to work the 9-5 grind living just above broke and feeling nackered by the end of the day. I regularly chopped and changed my jobs because I just couldn’t find anything that I loved doing. It honestly felt like there was no other option and that I just had to accept this was how life was. Some get lucky and some don’t. I wasn’t so lucky. At least that’s what I thought.To top it off I also came out as bisexual! It’s not so much of an abnormality now but 15 years ago it was an additional strain on life!
One day I was on my way to work and got a message from a friend about a fitness class that she wanted me to go to. My initial thoughts were ‘no chance’. I didn’t want to knacker myself out more! Never the less I made the decision to go with a slight push from my friend! From that day on my life changed forever. It was like a train hitting me straight in between my eyes. I saw these fitness professionals/coaches and the way they lived life compared to mine and instantly it all made sense. I could change my external situations all I liked, but really what I needed was to change who I was inside.
I decided to find opportunities in health and fitness so I could surround myself with likeminded people and finally made the decision to become a Personal Trainer. Through obtaining my qualification I then completed a course in nutrition and started helping people with that.
At first it was chaotic because I had my fingers in so many pies and just wanted to be successful. I had a full-time corporate job, was self-employed and worked a network marketing business. I didn’t have much direction, but I was trying. Some could say I was wondering through my days in the hope that success would come. I made the best decision of my life and got myself a coach and from there on it all fell into place. I started to grow my knowledge, doing personal development. I implemented a solid morning routine and ensured that I regularly expanded my mind. I had to change my habits and who I was so that I could live the life I wanted on the outside. I don’t know how I didn’t see this before!
I decided to quit my corporate job to focus on helping people do exactly what I did. It was a scary decision to make but it helped me level up. I now wake up bursting with energy, I am excited to get out of bed and my vison/direction is clear. I have time to grow my business while keeping fit and healthy to ensure that I can operate at my best every day and feel as though I am limitless!
I see so many entrepreneurs living their life the way I used to! It must be so tiring for them! I have made it my mission to help exhausted & chaotic entrepreneurs transform their lifestyle so they can become limitless. Just like I did.
If you resonate with my story in any way; I’d love to help. I’m currently offering complimentary discovery sessions where we can work together to ensure you’re move from chaotic to limitless too. What have you got to lose?
