I awakened to this work in 2016 after changing everything in my life that wasn’t working and then finding a whole new set of challenges. Full of hope and ambition, I couldn’t understand what was holding me back from my success as an entrepreneur and finding inner peace and fulfillment in the different areas of my life. I found the problem came from somewhere unexpected.
And so began my spiritual path. I struggled with the courage to vision a future-me worthy of the things I wanted, I battled with courage and the motivation to follow through on my dreams. I desperately feared the visibility required to be effective as a boss, a leader and to live into my highest potential.
My full range of emotions scared me, like the sun above might burn me and the ocean below might swallow me up. In this middle ground I withdrew from fear but also closed myself off from great joy. I was hiding in plain sight in my oh-so-comfortable mediocrity.
All the while, everything looked normal.
