After my recent big announcement about being in a film documentary, I received a flood of e-mails from people who were excited to share their goals and dreams with me.
Interestingly enough, there was a common theme throughout all of these messages.
Deep down inside, each person has a dream of where they’d like to be.
Some of you have even taken steps towards your goals. But at some point, you’ve gotten stuck. It happens to all of us.
Here’s the deal…
It’s time for us to change our language from “goals” to “COMMITMENTS”.
Quick personal story…
In early 2012, I wanted to expand my speaking opportunities at events I was excited about, including inspirational conferences, fashion shows and benefit galas.
Prior to that year, I allowed myself to get “stuck” in thinking that a major requirement of being selected for speaking was to be a local or national celebrity.
Once I LET THAT GO and really COMMITTED myself to finding opportunities to speak, all I had to do was use the two most powerful words…
I started sharing with everyone that “I am now offering speaking services for large events, from motivational speaking to emceeing to live interviews.”
It was almost immediately that a client forwarded me a casting call for emceeing the IMAGINE Fashion Runway Show.
Around the same time, I was introduced to the founder of an inspiring women’s conference.
And then, I reconnected with the producer and host of the most popular, online show for benefit galas in Seattle.
That year, I was selected to emcee IMAGINE; I spoke at two women’s conferences and co-hosted red carpet interviews at all the major galas in Seattle.
I even created my own speaking opportunities in Washington and California– and began learning about virtual speaking opportunities.
By the end of the 2012, I realized I had provided speaking services at over 40 events… ALL because I made a decision and commitment to DOING it.
I share this with you because right now, you may be keeping yourself stuck in some area of your life or business.
I’d love for you e-mail me at Amy@AmyYamada.com and let me know what you need to let go of… and what COMMITMENTS you’d like to make this year.
If I can do it, you can do it, too!
P.S. You may feel super busy right now. But the #1 thing you can do within the next FEW minutes is to let someone know what you are committed to this year! Click reply and let me know what you really, really want to accomplish in 2015.
