Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you do, you will be successful.
But it still takes time and dedication to make it to where you want to be, what you want to achieve from… the big dream.
That place you want your business to reach… its only crazy UNTIL you do it! But if you don’t dare to take action, how will you get there? It is not going to just land on your lap.
So, it starts with trying, execute your plan, get the ball rolling…
I have been wanting to bring my yoga teachings online and create special workshops. But it was always at the back of my mind. Just a month ago, I finally put it in the fore front and made it a priority.
I started learning through a great training platform about online business, affiliate marketing and e-commerce. The step by step brought me through everything that was necessary. And it has been a wonderful learning experience with great support from the platform community, trainers, consultants and mentors.
With that, just 6 weeks ago, with a close girlfriend who always prompted me to start my yoga videos, a light finally lit up and I said to myself, why not? And with that, my journey started, it felt right and timely. And hence I launched my video channel 2 weeks ago and it has been well received and I know this will grow and reach out to the world. Sharing my passion and love of teaching and helping others.
The other wanting, was to host yoga workshops, it’s been in my mind for years as well, but it’s just never happened. There was always something else and I never got to it.
But this year, beginning of February, as I was planning my trip to Bali, a thought came to mind, after a couple of my yogis asked “if or when I would ever do a yoga retreat.” So, another light lit up and say “Laura, it’s time to do one, finally!” With that, I got all the info, designed and scheduled the retreat for mid-march 2020, worked out the cost and everything necessary. The interest was amazing and well received, unfortunately the timing was not right. It was the hit of the Covid 19. Hence, as many wanted to attend, they were reluctant to travel with this unknown virus spreading fast and travel was a huge question mark.
The whole idea was scraped, but then I thot to myself, if traveling was a no, why not make it a 2 Sunday workshop in our home ground. And this, I did. The response was better than I expected. I just finish the 1st 4 hours Sunday workshop and so looking forward to the next one. And may start planning for another.
These two new paths I have taken, just elevate me to another level up. The response and feedbacks has been so positive and encouraging that it motivates me to do better, do more with excitement and more passion of what I love doing. The journey of learning and training online just perfect to bring me to where I am. And it will not end here, there’s so much more I want to explore online and very excited to explore this new tech world as part of my business and passion.
Is there something that you always wanted to do or try, but just never happen? If it is a yes and you still have the WANTs to do, I would encourage you to go for it…
It’s never too late, but it’s not trying that will bother you more with regrets.
