What does going after what you want feel like?
I remember the first time I was rejected from a store that at the time I based my entire success on being accepted by them. I cried. And I was annoyed (put mildly). I went to bed at about 2:00 in the afternoon and asked if I should keep going. It was a burn the muesli on the front lawn kind of day. Even though I heard a yes I should, I didn’t stop crying.
It feels painful.
I remember the time I was lying in bed at 2am and knew I had a whole lot of bills coming up and I just didn't have the money. It felt like a heavy weight on my chest. And I couldn't see anything beyond owing that money.
It feels scary.
I've never experienced a sensation quite like it....but as tired as I get, I've also never felt so alive and excited to live. I'm fulfilled in a way that nothing else can satisfy.
It feels fun.
When my day leads to new opportunities, adventures, friends, connections or events, it's the most exciting thing in the world to experience.
It feels exciting.
No matter how many times I feel defeated, deflated and just so tired, I could never imagine myself doing anything else. Even when I try to. Instead I find myself coming out the other side releasing one more limiting belief.
It feels like living.
Opportunities are scary and fun and amazing (and everything in between). You got whatever it is you're going after. Embrace the journey.
