Holy shit, what a ride!
The last couple days have been awesome and I learned a lot, but yesterday I felt like someone reached into my chest, doused it in petrol, threw a match at it, then catapulted it into outer space!
It was exactly what I needed. The summary of what I learned? I am the only one holding myself back from achieving what I am capable of. I feel freer, lighter, and a little unhinged at the same time hahaha.
This morning, despite feeling a little rough from a couple of celebratory vodka martinis before bed, I woke up possibly even more fired up than I’ve been all week! I immediately started looking at my goals with my fresher, less restricted mindset and picked out one to put into action immediately. It was a business idea that I thought I needed to hold off on until I was more business savvy, and had worked on my technical skills. Fuck that. Time to kick this idea pony in the guts!
Day 2 felt ultimately longer with soo much sales-related information that was well beyond where I’m at in my journey. I did take a lot more actionable value in terms of marketing, branding and getting going with developing my own brand, as where Day 1 was more of a mind opener for me. Day 1 showed me that anything is possible and set the tone for the conference, Day 2 started to show me how to turn infinite possibility into something that I could actually do with my life!
I had pretty low energy when I got back to my hotel room. Part of it was the regret of not starting earlier, part of it was pure exhaustion. I know there’s no point in regretting what I’ve been doing with my life up until this point, I know that it is all part of the journey and how I have had to learn what I needed to know, but it is what it is.
I did grab a couple courses and obviously have more scribbled notes and tasks to chip away at tonight so I better get cracking! There’s no room for more regret.
It’s official, it was 100% worth all the work to get here. I learnt A LOT today, from several speakers, and met a bunch of people.
It’s soo nice to meet people who just ‘get it’.
They get why I want more, they understand the hunger, why it doesn’t make sense to anyone else, and I don’t have to explain it. They just just know. THANK GOD.
I came away with a bunch of notes with to-do lists scribbled into the margins for after the conference! Although some are easier than others since I was writing in the dark, but hey, all the more reason to get started on actioning them while they’re fresh and I can figure out what I was writing…
At the end of the day, there was a performance by the one and only Flo Rida, but I just couldn’t sit around and listen to music, I’ve done enough of that already… I had a to-do list to tackle! I’ve managed to chip away at a few things, and after writing this entry, I am going to tackle a couple more before doing some yoga and meditation, and getting some decent rest before another epic day.
