Do you remember the one that got away? Stop and write down whatever came to mind when you read those words…”The one that got away…” Really. Do it. Don’t just think it, ink it as my mentor always says.

Did you write down a name of a person, a house you always wanted, a job opportunity you were afraid to take, a dream of opening your own business, a ticket to travel the world, following your calling or passions? What is that one thing you feel like slipped away from you?

Now reflect on this. Why? Why did it slip away?

Was it a decision you made? Was it because of fear? Was it a lack of faith? Was it someone else’s opinion influencing you? Was it because you weren’t being true to yourself?  Why did this person, opportunity or dream slip away?

Now we can’t change the past but we can take hold of the present by learning and growing from our past and the good news is its not too late! We CAN change our direction!

How?

  1. Identify the one thing that got away…now there may be more than one but let’s start with one.
  2. Identify the why.
  3. What 3 actions can you take to bring that person, opportunity, dream back into your life?

Ok here is the challenge. Which of those 3 things can you do in the next 24 hours? Make the call, book the flight, hire a coach…I don’t know what it is for you, but I am here to encourage you and help you advance into action!

 

Comment below with your next action step! If there is one thing I have learned is accountability is power!

 

The best way to empower others is to empower yourself,
