“Be careful what you wish for” was the family motto.
I had successfully achieved the American dream checklist including a nice paycheck, a powerful title, a beautiful family, two houses, and even a stay-at-home husband! I knew what I wanted and stayed glued to a Blackberry everywhere I went to maintain it—I was winning the game of life and I knew it.
So why wasn’t I happy if I had done everything I was supposed to do?
I remember going for a massage and breaking down in tears. I remember noticing a mole on my thigh and ignoring but going for a facial instead of meeting with my dermatologist. I was burnt out. I was desperate for time to myself. I was short-tempered and annoyed at home and at work. Was this the compromise it took to live the American dream?
I said no to family and friends with the excuse that I had to work. I had work piling up, family expectations to meet, and personal expectations to check off my list.
Have you ever asked yourself if you could be happy knowing this was it? Is the checklist in your mind yours or someone else’s? Are you basing YOUR American dream off what society has designed for you?
Suddenly it clicked.
There was more to life than this! I had let society and other people set the basis for my success instead of asking myself what I really wanted and why.
Finally, I took responsibility for my own journey and created my self-tested “Life by Design” strategy and blueprint that has allowed me to live a successful, fulfilling life on my own terms. Since this realization, things have been better than I could have ever imagined!
