In 2013, while instructing a college course on graphic design software, I had a lightening bolt, an ‘aha’. Standing up front of the class, exhausted from being up late updating curriculum that was multiple software versions out-of-date, I realized that what I truly wanted to be doing in that moment was to teach those young adults what I felt REALLY mattered: lessons about life, mindset, and spirituality. To encourage them to challenge themselves and grow beyond their current expectations; to help them see and discover their talents and abilities.
And then I jolted back to reality. And the proper ways to utilize Photoshop tools when editing a photo.
As a graphic designer, instructor, and copy writer I felt a long, long way from the counselor, philosopher, or therapist I thought I needed to be to instruct in those areas. It was as if my calling showed up and knocked me upside the head, but yet it felt there was no way to really have it.
But, the moment stuck with me. It has flavored everything I’ve done since then. I have mass quantities of mindset books, study, and coursework under my belt.
In fact, while Elevate5 was formed to simply deliver fabulous websites to business owners, early on it became very, very clear that some the encouragement and personal mindset work that ignited me was a much needed tool to aid our clients who are stretching their way to success… and I have been more than happy to assist.
In fact, you could say, that college classroom breakthrough in that sterile classroom was very much the first step on the path to writing and developing our Business Breakthrough Masterclass course.
The breakthrough realization that day in the graphics course, has aided me in weaving my passion and purpose into our business. At the time, we never thought someone would want a website paired with self-discovery… however, now, looking back it seems so, so obvious.
And like such a blessing to both us and our clients. And isn’t that JUST how that goes?
Have you ever had an odd lighting bolt moment that felt like a lapse in sanity… was it really a knock on your purpose? Your very own breakthrough waiting to unfold?
Lots of love,
