Daily Thoughts - Don't Wait For Others
After I talked with Michael a couple weeks ago about what it is I want to do and what my true passion is, I told him I know I can do more to help others and I want to do more. I'm tired of sitting around and just waiting for people to reach out to me. Sometimes I might go a month before someone reaches out, but I know there are people who need and want help that might not feel like they deserve the help or that asking for help means they've failed. So, I've decided I'm no longer just sitting around waiting for others to reach out to me, but I'm going to start putting myself out there more. Eventually this will be a service I'm hoping to be able to offer to others, not just our FT clients, because there are so many people who need and want help; and I want to be able to be that person who can make a difference. But, in the meantime, Michael is helping me set goals and even giving me the opportunity to offer seminars to our FT clients. In August I'll be doing a carb cycling seminar for our clients. Carb cycling is something I've been doing for about two years now and so I get a lot of questions on it from our clients, so this is a good way for me to put myself out there for others instead of me just waiting for them to contact me. And I'm really excited about it and already have five people signed up!
So, if you have a passion and you're sitting back waiting for someone to reach out to you or something specific to happen, you're not going to get much done. When I saw this quote above, it really hit home with me, because sometimes I do underestimate the difference I'm making to others. I know I'm inspiring, motivating, and making a difference to others; I just need to step up, reach out, and do more.
