Why Aren't You Pursuing Your Passions?
Posted on 11 October 2016
I have a friend. This friend is an amazing athlete. She's a state champ swimmer, she's always learning about new exercises and is always in AMAZING shape.
She wants to be a personal trainer, but there is always a reason why she can't.
- "I'll do it soon, when I have a little more money."
- "I'll do it when I have time to take my certification."
- "When I am a little more comfortable in my new job, I'll get going."
What is it that you love to do? Wouldn't it be great to do what you love and make some money doing it?
When I got sober, all I wanted to do was stop getting high. It took me a few years to understand that with my new found lifestyle, I had the freedom to do whatever I wanted.
I never thought I could have a successful tee shirt company. When I first started, I honestly expected people to laugh at me. I didn't even tell my friends about New Lyfe. Years later, here I am. I sold more shirts this week than all previous weeks. All I had to do was find the courage to try.
Sobriety should be more than just not drinking. Sobriety should be about having the freedom to live life on your terms. One day you are going to die. When that day comes, what is it that you would have wish you did more?
This doesn't have to be starting a business. This doesn't even have to involve money at all. Do you want to paint? Do you love running through the woods? Do you love to cook?
I am proof that with a little courage, hard work, and determination, you can find the time to work towards what you're passionate about? I would like to help you.
Don't worry, I'm not trying to sell you anything (well, other than some shirts). I'm just looking to have a conversation so I can learn more about the people who follow New Lyfe. I want to learn about your goals, your passions and what it is that is holding you back.
