Leap of Faith

Have you ever had the feeling that you were meant to do something, to take action, to make a change… Something specific to you!  It’s a feeling that just takes over, but it would be a huge shift.  A huge change in your life.  A leap of faith! 

I’ve had that – many times in my life actually!  Most recently, I have made a big decision.  One that has been causing me tremendous angst – but I took a leap of faith!  I resigned from my teaching position at the Canine Rehab Institute.  This decision was not made lightly, but it honored that little voice in my head. 

Are you waiting to take that leap of faith?  Leave your current job, open a clinic, start your clinic’s rehab service, start a new project, change your work structure to allow you to practice rehab… for example?  Good!

Now, right now, sit down and write out what you are thinking you want to do.  Then, write out or list what is stopping you!  (oh yeah… there will always be something stopping you or slowing you down!)  next, perhaps the most important step, write out what you would ‘need’ in order to take your leap of faith & a few action itmes that you could start with to take this leap.  At some point, when you tackle a few of these action times… your ‘leap’ becomes a no-brainer! 

There is a familiar saying out there:  If you always do what you’ve always done, you will always get what you’ve always gotten.



What is your big decision?

What are you struggling with?

Are you dragging your heels?

Do you just need a little motivation to steer you towards your next step?


As always – let me know your thoughts!

Drop me a line any time!
