When I look back on the last few years of my life, I can hardly believe the transformation that’s taken place in my life and business. Not so long ago, I Heart My Life was merely a dream of mine, and now it’s grown into something more extraordinary that I’d ever envisioned.

The past few years have been a time of massive change and growth for me and my biz, but honestly, my entrepreneurial journey hasn’t been without its challenges…

I remember how intense it felt when I first stepped off that plane in London, four giant suitcases in tow and totally alone in a new country. I was soon in the midst of a quarter-life crisis, in debt, and unsure of exactly what was next (but Iknew that I was meant to do something big).

And once I realized my “something big” was coaching, it took every ounce of courage and motivation I could muster to take the bold step to start my coaching biz – and to face 54 no’s from potential clients right from the start – and to keep pressing on.

Honestly, there were nights when I doubted whether all the energy I was putting towards my dreams would be worth it. There were moments where I wondered if I had what it took to make it to the level I desired to reach in my biz. And there were people who doubted my decision to go after my dreams.

But in the face of those things, I refused to let those doubts and challenges change my course. I kept moving forward, even when things didn’t always go as planned.

And by trusting myself and pressing on, I developed a quality that I now believe is essential to have as an entrepreneur – resilience.

Resilience is a quality that allows a person to face life’s challenges, setbacks and failures and to pick yourself up and come back stronger and more determined than ever to make your dreams happen. It’s about facing changes and challenges along your journey yet remaining optimistic and trusting that your dreams and your goals are still 100% possible.

It’s about believing in what you desire and making your dreams non-negotiable, no matter what.

And you know what? You have this resilience within you too, lovely.

Right now, maybe you feel like you’re stuck and not making the progress you desire in your life and biz. Maybe you’re feeling beaten down by setbacks or things not going as planned. Maybe you’re frustrated with your website, lacking inspiration, wondering when the money will come in, or struggling with naysayers. Perhaps the journey seems a lot more rocky than you’d expected…

I hear you. And I can relate.

I Heart My Life is actually on the verge of some super exciting changes as we speak (!) – but things haven’t been smooth sailing 100% of the time. There’ve been unexpected challenges and some growing pains. But I trust that it’s all part of the journey and that ultimately, things will come together as they should.

So, lovely, I encourage you to keep at it. Take steps every day to make your dreams happen. Trust yourself and believe that what you desire is possible. Make your goals non-negotiable.

You have what it takes to make your dreams a reality. You’re extraordinary, you’re talented, and you’re resilient.
