Do you love what you do?

Do you wake up every morning saying YES!? Do you love your career? Are you making massive amounts of money? Are you able to go on amazing vacations every year? Is your time your own? Are you making a difference in the world? Are you able to give freely to causes that are important to you?

If you would have asked me these questions 5 years ago my answer would have been NO!

I woke up every morning with a lot of fears and uncertainties. I knew I wanted so much more but I wasn’t sure what that would all look like.

I didn’t feel I was enough.

At the time my profession was being an In-Home childcare provider. I enjoyed the children very much and I didn’t enjoy the long hours. I especially didn’t enjoy dedicating my whole house to children. I had been in the field of Child Development for over 20 years and I thought at the time it was all I knew and all I would ever be able to do.

One morning I woke up and realized in order to live a different life when it comes to my career I needed to be different.

I needed to look at life differently.

Every night before I went to bed I started to focus on the feelings of gratitude. I stared to put my attention on everything in my life that felt good.

I was grateful we had a roof over our heads.

I was grateful I had a profession that enabled me to be there for my children.

I was grateful I was able to make a difference in children’s lives.

I was grateful I had a profession and wasn’t newly divorced without a job.

The list goes on and on…..

I continued to focus on what I was grateful for. The next thing I did was when I woke up I started acting as if I was waking up to a career I loved, even though I had no idea what that looked like.
I was gradually raising my vibration. Instead of focusing on what I didn’t want I started focusing on what I did want. Little by little I was raising my vibration.

Throughout the day I would stop and say out load I love my career. I love making a difference in the world. I love what I do. I love that my time is my own. I love being able to schedule lunch dates in the middle of my day. I love being financially free.

Remember I have the same career. I am caring for children in my home. Deep down inside I had a longing to motivate and inspire. Whenever I would go to conferences and workshops I would watch the presenters and I would see my self on stage. I would become alive when I would think of myself being able to help motivate and inspire others.

Again I didn’t know what this was all supposed to look like.

One day I had an opportunity to go out to an El Camino high school in Oceanside and lead a group of girls in a break out session. In this session I motivated and inspired the group to live healthier lives and make better decisions when it came to what they were eating.

I was able to reach the girls. I had them laughing and also crying during my presentation. After the breakout session the girls returned to the gym where they were motivated and inspired by the Keynote speaker.

I sat in the audience in tears. I thought how I wanted to motivate and inspire the girls. I wanted to be the Keynote speaker and motivate and inspire them.

After the retreat at the high school I found myself doing workshops in my bathroom. I was acting as if I was motivating and inspiring the girls. I was acting as if they were coming up to me and hugging me after my presentation telling me how inspired they were by what I was saying.

What was I doing, I was acting as if I was motivating and inspiring teenage girls in my bathroom. I was acting as if I was the Key note speaker and the girls loved every bit of what I was saying.

So what happened next well that really is a long story so I am going to fast forward to right now.

One year ago I made the decision to turn around and teach people what I do. I am an Act as if Change Your Life Master. I have been acting as if my whole life. One year ago I made the decision to be a motivational speaker. I made the decision to be a best selling author traveling the world making a difference where ever I go. During my journey I also made the decision to become an Act as if Change Your Life Coach.

I am making a difference in peoples lives teaching them my amazing technique. My technique is turning their lives around. I am also certifying people to be Act as if Change Your Life Coaches. My life sure does look different than it did five years ago.

What would have happened if I kept thinking I wasn’t good enough, not smart enough, just plain not enough.

I tell you this I wouldn’t be doing what I am right now. I wouldn’t be motivating and inspiring people to be living the life of their dreams.

Oh ya and remember how 5 years ago I was in my bathroom Acting as if I was the key note speaker for a group of teenage girls. Well let me tell you, this May 19th I am indeed the keynote speaker for El Camino High School. And not only will I be presenting my life changing workshop to them, they have invited two other high schools and three middle schools. And to top it off there will be a camera crew there filming me for an incredible movie called You-Turn.

My message to you is it doesn’t matter what you are currently doing for your career. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have a college degree. When you turn around and focus on what you want and turn away from what you don’t want, Magic happens.

What do you want? What turns you on? If you knew for sure you wouldn’t fail what would you be doing? Would you be doing what you are doing right now?

It’s time for you to tap into your imagination and created the life of your dreams.

If I can do it, so can you!!!!!

Remember this is your life to live as you choose…

I will be presenting one of my life changing events April 15th at the Center for Spiritual Living down town San Diego. Come join me and see my amazing life changing workshop. You will be really glad you did.
