Have you ever had that tugging on your heart? That idea or movement to do something or change something but you just don’t know how to get started? Or maybe you’re like me, you just don’t like taking risks. Well, what I really don’t like is taking a risk that requires complete trust, kind of like a little bird being kicked out of the nest and you hope that you grow wings on the way down! 😊
I’m okay with calculated risk, where I have the time to do some resource, seek counsel, weigh the pros and cons, and have a plan. For me this is still taking a risk, just not as scary! And it’s somewhere in between full on risk and calculated risk that this new journey had immerged for me.
Over the past two years I have felt the call to become a leadership coach, start a blog and podcast. But, it just felt like too much, there was so much I didn’t know about this space. My lack of self-confidence got in the way with questions like, would anyone want to read or hear what I had to say? Or where would I find the time to write and produce podcasts? Or would my experience of 30 years in leadership and a family background of entrepreneurs be enough to add value to women’s lives, and deliver on coaching with excellence? You know all those lies that the evil one wants you to believe. These have been my battles over the past two years.
While we all have been putting one foot in front of the other during this uncertain time of the worldwide pandemic, for me this has been a time of an exceptionally large silver lining. It has opened opportunities and allowed me to carve out time to reflect, respond, and step forward with courage and enthusiasm into something new. Something that I know I am called to do.
The time has come! Today I am launching my website that will contain blogs on life and leadership, podcasts, guest interviews, Amy’s book list and reviews, and my leadership coaching business! I am so excited and thrilled for this new adventure!! I am beyond thrilled for the amazing women I have already met and those I will meet on this journey to a life lived with excellence! I know that God has called me to this work, and he will equip me for every step in this new journey.
What has been tugging at your heart? What is stopping you for taking that first step to your dream? How can you minimize some risk and begin a new adventure? Don’t let fear or self-doubt stop you from bringing your brilliance to the world.
I invite you to join me in the journey of life, leadership and transformation!!
