Growing up as a daughter of entrepreneurs in the health and wellness industry was the best thing in the world for me. I learned at an early age how to sit quietly and patiently for hours on end.. While listening and taking notes from multimillionaire entrepreneurs on topics such as personal growth, goal-setting, thinking and acting outside the box, overcoming obstacles, building relationships, time management, team building, leadership, building belief systems, importance of positive affluence, risk taking and work ethic. I learned that anything I set my mind to, I could achieve. I learned to be independent, confident, kind and understanding. I learned how to stand up for the things I believe in, how to speak my mind and never let anyone's negativity stop me from pursuing my purpose. I learned that it's possible to find a career that allows time freedom and financial freedom, that challenges you to be a better version of yourself each day and that contributes to the well being of the world. I had the opportunity to hear from some of the top holistic medical professionals in the US on the importance of preventative medicine and treating disease with vitamins and minerals (literally vitamins and minerals.. You know, what our cells are made of and is necessary for life function). I also got to be surrounded by positive, motivated, goal achieving, successful pupils. Did you learn and experience those things in public or private school when you were 3-18 years old? Yeah, I didn't either.
I also got to travel all around the country, see and experience things that other kids my age could only dream of....my parents never missed a softball game, volleyball game, choir or dance performance. They made every competition, all parent-teacher conferences and during the summer they were home with me or I was traveling with them. I am eternally grateful for being gifted the best parents in the world. For those of you with kids.. Do your kids get to have those life experiences? If not... You should re-think how much good you are actually doing for your children by staying in your comfort zone and making excuses for why you can't leave it. Now I know not everyone can have the rad childhood I had.. But what are your kids missing out on because of the excuses you make to not do something? Do you want your kids to live a long healthy life? Then you have to show them how by example. Do you want them to take every opportunity that will improve their quality of life, even if they have to temporarily sacrifice for it?...be brave and show them how. They may not understand now, but when they grow up I promise they will, and they will respect you for it.
