Tomorrow everything changes.
This isn't my usual post where I say I'm waking up tomorrow and going to make changes. No, literally, tomorrow everything changes. It's exciting, but excitement never enters my life without some fear and anxiety. For the comfort of my own nerves, I'm going to assume that's the same for everyone.
Greggie has been amazingly supportive of the social media side of Lifeology and has support it and me every step of the way. It's finally blossoming and quotes are going out, work is coming in and I have more exciting plans in the wings.
So it's his time to fly.
Tomorrow he begins a long anticipated 5 month full time contract in a change management position. The work he's?phenomenal?at and his ?passionate vision for Lifeology.
So it truly, really all changes ... tomorrow.
I wake up and head off to my first marketing council meeting for a client, without my business partner in the car. I'm not going to say he won't be at my side, because we'll always be at each other's side. The dynamic of how we both function is going to change drastically and it's so interesting for me to watch how some of my oldest fears have crept to the surface.
It would be so easy to say that I know what I'm doing, I'm bold and brave and will be just fine, but I've never subscribed to the positivity movement of ... everything's fine! I don't do pretending not to be afraid or ignoring the fear and staring at myself in the mirror yelling to myself, "no fear!"
Instead, I tell myself the truth that the changes are huge and that as of tomorrow I'm going to be doing things I usually rely on my business partner for. I admit that I am always nervous I will get lost, hate going to new place on my own, am not used to going to business meetings about contracts and money on my own, usually don't do anything much with the quotes and finances at all. That's a lot ... a lot!
Now that I've told that truth ... the other voice in my head reminds me of the way I handle any change in my life. After I'm done freaking out, I head into the world (shaking in my boots at times) and I face the challenges head on. I've made plans to make sure I'm brave and have GPS, a car charger and a few people on speed dial.
I've planned meetings for next week to overcome my fear of me not being able to open or close a contract on my own. I've put the foundation in place for the things I want to get off the ground in the social media arena of Lifeology, just to remind myself that I've done so much that has made me successful already.
And with my bravery packed, my vision set and my courage souring, I turn my attention to the most amazing business partner a girl could ask for.
Greggie, I'm so excited and proud of you and your ability to make your dreams a reality. I know that this is the yet another step to you changing the world.
This is what all the hard work and?preparation is for ... very moments like this. Very scary yet totally exciting moments like this!!!
