1 year anniversary

I’M NEARING MY 1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF SOBRIETY.
.
Over a year ago, I decided to transform my life.
.
Since then I:
Graduated with a Master’s from Brown University.
Moved across the country.
Started my coaching business.
Make my money with my business.
Show up for myself and my clients everyday.
Became a healthier, happier person.
Most importantly, I allowed myself to be the powerful leader that I am.
.
Here’s what sobriety has taught me about life and business.
.
YOU have to be willing to ask for help.
YOU have to decide that enough is enough and that you will have control over your actions and your decisions.
AND, that it’s literally impossible to please people — don’t try.
.
It’s bizarre as hell because I never fully realized that I had a problem with prescription drugs and alcohol.
SO many people around me dealt with the same thing, so I thought it was normal.
.
I thought it was normal to depend on those things.
.
See, I’ve always been a happy person.
Happiness was not the issue.
.
I know you know what I mean because you’re also a high-achiever.
You’re also a pretty happy person.
But somewhere along the line, you started depending on things to maintain your high vibes.
.
THE ONLY time I allowed my personality to truly shine was when I was drinking.
I THOUGHT that it was alcohol that gave me permission to be me.
I THOUGHT I needed permission to be me.
.
I learned that I could be me without drugs and alcohol.
That my clients needed me to be me.
That I needed me to be me.
.
Sobriety has taught me that you will NEVER be ready to transform your life.
.
>>We are creatures of habit.<<
.
I ask you today:
What negative habits do you need to get rid of?
What is holding you back?
Why are so afraid to take action on your life?
Who are you afraid to disappoint?
Where is this fear coming from?
When will you decide to be your own rescue?
Why are you still people pleasing?
.
>>So I ask you, when will you breakthrough your limiting beliefs and patterns, and start living your life fully??<<
