Lessons I learned in 2015
Wow, it’s been a super amazing year full of lessons.
Sometimes the lessons were quite difficult to swallow (or admit to). Sometimes they were downright joyous but all in all I accomplished a ton.
I do not like struggling. I don’t think anyone does!
I had struggled long enough so I made the decision to square up my desires for my life to my actions. It started
early in the year when I decided to really put myself out there.
#1 Lesson learned
Don’t stop before you have reached your goal
Since I wanted to be a successful blogger and life coach I did some research. I came up with a couple of tactics. One was to attend a school that pretty much guaranteed your success if you followed their guidelines. The second was to start contacting other people that were already successful in my chosen field. I applied for a scholarship to the school, but I didn’t get it. I told myself, “I surely couldn’t afford to pay for it myself as I was barely making ends meet”, so I abandoned the idea.
In the meantime I focused on my contact list. I chose several people to contact. Only one responded and it wasn’t what I had hoped for or asked for. I changed tactics. I know, I know, I should have continued to write to them but I didn’t.
