Welcome back to my blog! I know it’s been a while, but I suppose I’ve been doing things that have been worth writing about, through self-discovery, growth and personal awareness! I know I keep saying this, but this year thus far has been a tremendous eye opener and I could have never ever have imagined the things that have actually happened. But isn’t that the beauty of life?
On my journey, opportunities have come in abundance which have led to learning, discovering and widening my knowledge basis of the world in which we live and true to form, if I find something that has excited or helped me, I have vowed to pass that onto you. On reflection and as an opportunist, I have taken most opportunities that have come across my path, whether they served my purpose or not. If I’m going to be completely honest with you; I was almost scared NOT to take up the opportunity, in case I missed out on something…. These days I am more in-tune, in-touch and more confident about what I want out of life and have a direct focus to be pickier about the opportunities pursued.
Then this opportunity crossed my path and something told me to “Go for it!” So, I did…. and I will never, ever look back!
Alignment Is The New Hustle Course… kick started my spiritual journey and redirected my path so I was back on track and in ‘alignment’ with my true purpose in life.
Before enrolling onto the course, I was sceptical, I’m going to be honest. I thought that I might get something out of it, but that it would be unlikely. Although deep down, I felt a little excitement of the unknown, as I’d never taken part in an online course before. The only training, education or learning had always been to further ‘my career’ or work purposes, never just because it was solely a subject that interested me. So here I was!
Setting up and logging on was so easy, you get your own login and an intro to the course designer Jennifer Willemsen who is a trained in the field of Psychology as a Psychologist and has started her own company. Jennifer takes you through the reasons why she designed the course and the overall aim for you. You don’t need to be a computer whiz, just the basics of internet use and off you go! Of course, Jennifer is on hand if you hit any technical difficulties as well as an option to join the secret Facebook group
You download and print the course booklet, so you can refer back to activities you have gone over and follow your own journey, which I found really helpful and insightful. Just one tip, You get out what you put in!, which I know goes for most things, so don’t be tentative; throw yourself into it!
As you go along, the course automatically saves your progress and smoothly moves from one topic to the next. You can go at your own pace, log in when you feel, but as everything, consistency key.
The Course | Alignment Is The New Hustle
Ok, so you start and hold on…you’re in for an enlightening ride!
Another key thing is to be absolutely honest with yourself! If you do, you will be able to answer those questions that have been haunting you. And do you know who will answer those questions? You! Yourself! You have all the answers! In my blog How Well Do You Know Yourself? I wrote about being honest with yourself as a key to positivity and self-belief and it is true with any self-improvement/development course also.
The structure of the course consists of 10 modules with that includes an interlude, a bit of background as to the why behind the topic, resources to watch or read and activities or exercises to cement the learning. These modules flow from one to the next and involve you looking at your current life, future desires and building up to practical ways that you change any self-limiting beliefs and behaviours that no longer serve you now. It helps you objectively look at your life and helps you understand what you really want or desire.
Let’s be honest, most of us just glide through life, from experience to experience, believing that we are powerless in the events that unfold in our lives or believe we’re victims of our own circumstances… sound familiar? Often, we don’t dare to dream as far as our imagination can take us, which, by the way, is limitless! Yes, limitless. The only limits you have are those in which you place upon yourself. So, when we wake in the morning, instead of dreading the day ahead and wishing for a lotto win to take you away from the dreaded life, that you created, why not dream of a life you want? And why don’t we?! Dreams or day dreaming, make believe and pretending, are all things that we are told are childish, for kids, for dreamers and that once we get to adulthood, with responsibilities, bills, work careers, playing and dreaming is left behind. This makes me so sad, because in dreaming, exploring the limitless possibilities in our mind and having a dream so big it scares you, is what makes life worth living. Dream big! Yes and why not, who does it hurt?
What dreams do you have?
This course will help you focus on what you REALLY want out of life. Because, let’s be honest, what is the point in living a life that makes you miserable, when you ultimately have the chance every day to change it.
Before this course I had aspirations and dreams and to a certain extent, the guts to go for it. Alongside; reoccurring doubt, self-limiting thoughts and conflicting ideas of who I am and what I should do.
During this course, a job opened up at my place of work; a possibility of promotion. I work for a small CIC, so this would be my only opportunity to progress here. I love my job and what we do on a day to day basis; help people that would otherwise wouldn’t be heard or their opinions/views valued or considered, make significant changes in their life. I see where this fits in with the wider world, alongside great colleagues and a fantastic work-life balance. When the job first came up, I had already dismissed the idea of going for it. Mainly due to…well what do you think? You guessed it! Other people’s ideas, assumptions, fears etc… I told my hubby that I wasn’t going to go for it and he said “Why not?! You’ll regret it if you don’t!” He was absolutely right! I am a strong believer of no regrets and I couldn’t add this to my first regret in life…
The practical exercises such as visualisation, affirmations, manifestation, guided meditations in the Alignment Is The New Hustle course guided me to challenge my self-limiting beliefs and implemented a new way of thinking. I hit this hardcore and it became a part of my daily routine! In which I still do today.
Anyways, fast forward to the day of the interview for my promotion. A bunch of weird things happened on the morning of the interview which meant, my slot was bought forward. I must admit, I’m pretty good at interviews (as long as I prepare). But this was with colleagues, members of the board; no BS would get past these guys! I felt pretty good, positive. Arriving early meant there was time to relax and get into the right mindset and…I nailed it! I came out of the interview knowing that I had one my absolute best I possibly could and if I didn’t get the job, then that path just wasn’t for me….I am now the Business and Development Manager of my company!
Since the course I have continued to put into practice what’s been taught to me and then some! Alignment is the New Hustle introduced new ideas to me and new concepts that I have since researched further into and also put me onto leaders in the field of the subjects… I also have started to understand the power I have to make my life what I want and an unmovable focus to get me there. All because I took a chance on something that my former self would have passed up on…
This course aims to ‘help you believe, feel, and experience your greatness by creating the life you want, no matter your set point’ and this is exactly what it has done for me! It’s an ongoing process, after you complete the course this is why I’ve dubbed it, ‘The course that just keeps giving!’
For me it hasn’t stopped there! I have decided to follow another passion of mine that, because of self limiting beliefs; I dismissed years ago. I’ll let you know what I’m up to when I can offer the my services. For now, this one will be kept under wraps! It’s an exciting and challenging time for my little family and if I’m going to be honest with you, I’m not sure I’d be on this path if I didn’t take this course.
(Me! Off out out to celebrate my promotion! I shared as a story on my IG)
So what are you waiting for…? If you are not happy in your life, want a different future and be a better version of you, then this course will help you get there. This isn’t a get rich quick, guaranteed money maker, MLM, change your life over night or any of the other stuff that’s shoved in your face on a daily basis. Like I said you get out what you put in and if you put in enough and let yourself get into it, you will achieve more than a financial gain, you will learn a new way of life, giving you a new insight and lease of life that you can continue to develop with your new found practices.
