Faith, Heart, Hustle

 

 

Why do I have faith?

When you have almost died three times, but you're here still standing, there has to be a purpose.

I had to trust God when he told me, it wasn't my time to die, that I had lots of things to do.

So when I woke up from my bicycle accident at the age of 18 years, I had faith and trust that my dream to be a professional skater was going to happen.

This was not easy. I had to step up my training especially since the accident. I never whined that I was tired after skating 6 hours a day.

I knew in my heart that it was necessary to hustle and put in the training with running 5 miles every other day after starting work at Dunkin Donuts at 5:00am.

This was huge. I skated professionally with Dorothy Hamill and traveled from east coast to west coast. It was my dream job, traveling and skating. It was a great experience to stretch myself with not only physical challenges, but mental challenges as well.

When you are out there on the ice you have to be very precise with your turns and spins. One false move you could break your neck.

So I promise you that if you have a dream, faith and hustle will get you what you so desire. You can't expect instant gratification.

You must be 100% committed to staying curious.

I promise if you follow this curiosity with an open faithful heart, God willing, you will be on your path.

If you are willing to get your uniform dirty, do what's necessary with a little hustle. Magic will happen, miracles are manifested.

Who would ever have thought a woman over 40 years old would go back to school and receive a 4.0 GPA, even though she was diagnosed with a learning disability?

This same woman built a health & wellness business that has healed thousands of people over the past 20+ years.

This same woman bought her condominium at the peak of the market in 2004. 12 years later this same woman is now a renting this same condominium, building equity towards her retirement.

I am this woman who had faith in my dreams and that something extraordinary was going to happen, even though at times I couldn't even fully understand how and why?

I would love to hear your beautiful story of your sacred path.
