In addition to just launching nesha…my first foray into starting a small business…I’ve also signed up to start another business with a well respected and successful business woman in the health and wellness space. It’s an opportunity that fell into both of our laps with little time for real contemplation. We had to act and act fast…and that’s what we did.
I can honestly say, the prospect of not starting this second business was far more stressful than the thought of doing it. The thought of really putting myself out there to try my hand at something I believe in but don’t have a lot of hands on experience running…felt right. I loved the idea of learning and running a business that I know will make people’s lives better…of starting something that aligns so well with what we are doing with nesha.
Shortly after the opportunity presented itself, I realized that the primary purpose of nesha was to push me out of my comfort zone. To get me to finally step out and take a risk…a small risk, but a risk nonetheless. To move me past dreaming and talking into doing. It worked so well that when this most recent opportunity came along, I didn’t have to think twice. I knew what I needed…and wanted…to do.
This morning we had our first meeting to talk about the vision with two individuals that will be a crucial part of our success going forward. And it felt great! The more we talked, the more I realized that this is exactly where I’m supposed to be. I have no reservations about being successful. I have no reservations about the potential we have to impact people’s lives. I have no reservations about investing my money into a dream that we haven’t fully thought out yet. I have no reservations about any of it.
I’ve moved past being a person that felt she had to have all the answers to a person that has faith in what she can’t see. I’ve moved past being afraid of failing to exist in a place where failure isn’t a bad word…nor is it something I see myself doing. I’ve landed in this space where I’m defining who I am and what I want to be in the moment as opportunities present themselves. I’m existing in the moment…supported by a past of lessons learned…with an eye toward a future that I know contains everything I need.
Within this space there’s lots to do…lots more to learn…lots of personal and professional growth..but none of it is stressful. None of it is scary. I can see how successful it’s going to be…and all I have to do is get there. All I have to do is continue walking my path. All I have to do is believe.
