It started off as a dream. As a child, I often imagined what I would do for a living. There were two professions that particularly intrigued me; becoming a teacher and a writer. I got my first full-time job as a salesperson at Future Shop selling TV’s, VCR’s (remember those?) and Camcorders. I moved my way up the ladder becoming promoted as Sales Manager after less than 2 years. I became hooked. Inspiring and positively impacting my team became my passion.
My leadership journey took me through many routes, some very challenging but most very rewarding. My idea to start a blog back in June 2015, was ignited by two desires; to leave a legacy, and to increase my value in the world. What if what I shared could help inspire even more people? I hoped that my blog would be that vehicle. A vehicle allowing me to educate, entertain or inspire others about my two passions; Leadership and Personal Development.
I didn’t have any idea where to start and I knew my time was already very limited, balancing a career and a family. I decided to start anyways knowing that I would learn and adapt along the way.
Today is my 100th Blog Post and Here is What I Learned Throughout my Journey:
- When you have a goal, don’t worry about knowing all the steps before you start. Figure out step 1 and build your other steps along the way.
- Take small steps every day towards your goal. Small steps add up quickly.
- During those times where you are tired and want to quit, think about your reason for starting in the first place.
- Celebrate small wins.
I think back again to my dream as a child, wanting to be a teacher and a writer. In some way, I ended up achieving both and for that I am grateful. If you have been on that journey with me from the beginning, or just recently started, I appreciate having you as a reader. I hope I can continue being of value.
