How I Decided To Quit My Job
Published on March 19, 2012
People ask me all the time how I decided to quit my job.
Sure there’s a bit more to it than this….but in those last final moments before I actually drove to work and quit my job (almost two years ago) I sat with my journal first.
I wrote down what the most incredible, freaking fantastic best scenario that could ever happen to me by quitting my job and dedicating myself to Dirty Footprints Studio 100% could be.
Then I wrote down what I feared. I wrote about how I could actually fail. Fall flat on my face.
Then I wrote what I would do next if that happened. How I would pick myself up again, brush myself off, and go apply for a job at the bakery at the end of my street for awhile until I could try it all over again.
To be honest with you–that’s how I make all my decisions. I visualize the dream and how perfect things could be—I visualize how I could totally fail and bomb—and then I visualize how I will pick up and try again.
I believe that’s all there is to it.
Success is 100% possible.
So is failure.
But self reliance, determination, and passion trumps them both.
That’s the real key.
