A LITTLE BACK STORY
Time stopped. It’s Friday afternoon; I am at my desk at work and my life flashes before my eyes. I get a massive rush of fear of me being stuck in this 9 to 5 all my life. Unfulfilled and losing sense of who I truly am. My memory recalls, all at once, the words of my coworkers telling me how they live for Fridays and dread Mondays. But there’s one particular flash that struck me most: someone telling they didn’t like Fridays because it means we’re getting closer to Monday. This toxic way of seeing life sent a shiver down my spine that alarmed me to take action and close this chapter in my life. The following week, I handed in resignation.
My journey to becoming my next level self began when I was a little girl and saw the lifestyle my parents chose; two lawyers, working around the clock, not having time to take care of their wellbeing and an unhealthy diet. I am grateful for the fact that this forged an independent and strong woman in me who is very health conscious and makes smart choices every day. Little did I know, this was the first seed planted in my mind that would have me chase a very different lifestyle.
MY GUARDIAN ANGEL
Stella means star in latin, and that’s the very first name of my grandma. The one that would see my future before I could and the one that would push me to dream. She knew way before me that I was a born communicator. She would say to me, “Catherine, with your communication skills and the way you express yourself, you are meant to be in the public eye… I see you on the radio, TV, stages – everywhere”. Very young, I thought the idea was crazy and unrealistic, but the more self-aware I became, the more her words made sense and got me excited for all the possibilities of how I could greater a bigger impact in this world. And I knew from that moment on deep inside me, my purpose was never meant to be stuck in the routine of an unfulfilling 9-5.
THE POINT OF NO RETURN
Many people ask me, “Cath, when did you know you had to quit?” My answer to them is: “you will know.” We must learn to listen to our intuition. I had my first intuitive guidance when I was about to finish my Master’s degree. I had felt deep down that I should not look for a job and become an entrepreneur. But I didn’t believe in myself. Though I looked up to and dreamt of living the life of people like Marie Forleo, I thought to myself, “I’m not good enough, it would be too good to be true, do I have what it takes? Am I not a born entrepreneur? I don’t come from a family of entrepreneurs.” Often, our body is one of the first indicators that something in our life is off. Working long hours during the day would drain me from all desire to workout and take care of myself. I felt my bubbly and happy personality was drifting away. I was unhappy, unfulfilled, and the stress that once fueled me was now taking over my life. I no longer practiced powerful and positive habits.
And so that day, the morning of September 28, 2018, when my life flashed before my eyes, I realized my fear of being stuck in a 9 to 5 all my life was greater than the fear of venturing on my own. I was always meant to create my own business, build a purposeful life on my terms and change the lives of people all over the world – and I knew in that moment that now is the only time I have to make it happen. So I decided and never looked back.
The biggest lesson here and what I want you to walk away with is: start before you’re ready. It might seem scary at first, but at the end of the day, it’s always worth it!
That silver living you’ve been searching for in your life;
That deeper sense of purpose you know you’re meant to live with & share with others;
That version of you who does the scary thing because they know they’re worth so much more than settling.
It’s all here right now.
It’s up to you to decide to claim it all, and I am here to support you on that.
