Lessons In The Form of Experiences (L.I.F.E.) Pt.6: Unreasonable Doubt

Posted on Updated on

That's Unreasonable!
That’s Unreasonable!

HELLO A2H readers! I am back to share more stories about this entrepreneurial journey. These last few months have had me feeling totally overwhelmed and exhausted.  All I remember about summer is that I was working with several clients on projects, job searches etc. and trying to plan an event.  Next thing. I know, it was September, my kids were back to school and my full-time job was driving me crazy!

Then came November/December and I am feeling very disconnected from my journey. Being completely honest, I am doubting my ability to pull this off.   Since school has kicked into gear, my MOM duties have been  taking all of my time and energy.   I have doubted my ability to be the type of fully engaged mother I want to be while also being an entrepreneur. Oh, and let’s not forget that I work a full-time 9-5 gig that requires a lot of thought, energy and engagement as well. What the hell was I thinking trying to start a business, kick off a movement and raise 2 children? Lately I just don’t know if it is possible to do what I am attempting to do.

This is new for me, I have not been here before.  In fact, these feelings go against everything I know about myself, my goals and my vision. After all, this company and movement is called Aspire2Higher…and my job is to encourage people to aspire for more…no matter what!  This movement was started based on my belief that once you have discovered your purpose and create a vision, you are destined for personal and professional success!  This blog post is a testament to the fact that you will have bad days and rough seas. I am a testament that with your vision in place and through your visionwork, YOU are a captain and will stay the course!

I am realizing day after day that this is a very difficult road, but, I am determined and resilient. Yes, I doubt my ability to be a successful entrepreneur, author, educator and mother of two, but I still have a burning desire to be all of those things. My passion and desire to meet my goals outweighs the doubt every time.  I have decided to remind myself that this season was just UNREASONABLE DOUBT.

    Stephanie what an inspiration!! You are doing an awesome job juggling motherhood, work, being an entrepreneur and all of the other aforementioned items you listed. I’ve felt the same way for two consecutive years. Working a demanding 9 to 5, which on many occasions required extended hours as well as weekends. In addition, to pursuing my Master’s degree at St. Joe’s University, being a mom-mom to my beautiful granddaughter, a wife and other responsibilities such as church, and volunteering just to name a few. I wish you all the best in your endeavors may you reach all the goals you are trying to obtain. I love your drive, perseverance, and commitment you have. These same attributes have motivated me in my darkest hours. Just when I wanted to give up I couldn’t, it wasn’t an option. I knew I had to finish what I started, no matter how difficult it was, at my core I’m a determined person and that drive allowed my goal to come to fruition. Keep up the good work – Greater is coming – be blessed!!
