A year ago I was talking to this guy and we were vibing and talking about our dreams. I told him that I wanted my own publishing company; but I didn’t want just a publishing company. No, I wanted to publish books, poetry, music, and I wanted to produce films, and plays. He was so supportive and down. He told me that he believed in me and wanted to stick around to watch me achieve my dreams.
Almost exactly a year later I am living my dream. I have my own publishing company – B. Love Publications and I’m one step closer to conquering everything that I said I wanted to do.
What’s so crazy is… in the midst of this most perfect time in my life, there’s a bittersweet pull at my heart because he is no longer in my life to share this with me. When I published my first book with Ambiance Books I wanted desperately to call him and tell him, but I couldn’t.
When Kailani and Bishop was in the top 100 charts for over a month on Amazon I wanted to call him, but I couldn’t.
When I decided to step out on faith and start my own publishing company just as we talked about I wanted to call him, but I couldn’t.
And then I realized, his purpose in my life was to get me to this point – not to share it with me.
Had I not met him I wouldn’t have taken the necessary steps to get to this point. Had I not lost him and been so consumed by my feelings I wouldn’t have written Kailani and Bishop and sought to get it published. I wouldn’t be writing this post today.
So, I said all of this to share with you my 5 P’s of my personal success. Your Purpose is often found in your Pain, but with the right Perspective it can Push you into your Passion and destiny.
Don’t let anything hinder you or keep you from releasing the story and the greatness within you!!
I’m a dream chaser, and the fact that my dreams are becoming a reality makes me even more motivated to help others chase their dreams and fulfill them!
What burning desire is raging inside of you? What pain did you overcome that almost consumed you? Find the purpose in your pain. Keep the right perspective. Let that push you into your passion and destiny!!
Peace, love and blessings –
