The first step in combating this feeling? Recognize you have a problem.
The next step is allowing yourself to seek help from people who genuinely care and who have insightful experiences for them to share to you.
If you’re looking for that push to pursue what you have been wanting to do ever since, this is the sign. Are you lying to yourself and are pursuing something you don’t actually want? This is not the end zone. There’s more to life than making do of your situation.
Lose the manana principle. (Stop putting off what can be done now.)
I read Penny’s book and reflected on my career and life. I was touched by Chapter One, “Is It Too Late?” and Chapter Five, “Paint Your Future.” Fast forward to a year later, I attended Penny’s Vision Board Workshop.
One day, I experienced a wake up call, when I was transported by ambulance from my workplace to the emergency room for the first time in my life. Soon afterwards, I took a courageous choice. I decided to shift back to my kinesthetic passion and shift forward to a niche in learning & technology. I am now celebrating my 15-year career as a STOTT PILATES Full Certified Instructor, and relishing my work in corporate training with e-Learning.
I have considered Penny as my mentor since 2011 when we started working together in Talent Development programs for nation-building. She has mentored me by example, by friendship, and even through her book. Every now and then, I revisit some chapters and some of my reflections. I am happy to say that my vision board is coming true step by step. I now have a lot of reasons to celebrate blessings quite often.
Thanks so much, Penny, for everything that you do and all that you are. Take heart that I am one of the first 100,000 lives that you have touched. I hope I can be of service to you as well. God bless you always!
