It’s amazing when things go according to plan, isn’t it? The past few days had me feeling like I was on pins and needles constantly. Late yesterday (Oct. 30), I received a message that made up for all the stress and anxiety I have been feeling over the last while. What was that message? Avidon and I have been accepted as the authorized distributor for Romania. This is truly a life-changing moment for myself. When you have a plan, a vision, a feeling, you must pursue it to your fullest potential. I could have not gotten this far through the process without my mentor and friend, Avidon M. Respes.
I believe that there are few people left in this world that are willing to give someone a chance purely because they believe in them. Although we have not met in person yet, Avidon and myself have become good friends. It was through his mindset and motivation that I have been able to push myself further and go for the gold. Although this is only the first step in a long journey, I believe that there is no stopping me from here on out. I have dreamed for such an opportunity for many, many days. Now it's time to take control and make this happen.
So, what’s the next step? Now that our business plan has been approved, Avidon has taken it upon himself to find investors so that in one month from now when we arrive in Turkey, we will be able to finalize the contracts. Once his part is done, that’s when the real work starts for me. I have many plans already made in my head but as we all know, what works in theory might not be the best idea in real life. That’s fine, I am ready to face these challenges head on and adjust as needed.
In preparation to this I am also trying to prepare myself mentally as well as physically. In the past few weeks I have started to get up earlier, even though my full-time job finishes at 1am. That is the sacrifice I need to make. No one likes to get out of that comfy, warm bed when you don’t have to, but if you procrastinate, you will never accomplish anything in life.
Another change that I have been striving for is changing my diet. No more sugary drinks and no more fast food. I have noticed that right after eating a high fat, high sugar meal all you want to do is take a nap. I changed that by doing more cooking at home. In my younger days I was a chef and I am using that to my advantage now.
The last and most important change I have made is to get rid of negativity in my life. Whether that is negative people, negative thoughts or anything along those lines. That all must go. Nobody needs that in their life, it does not benefit you in any way, shape or form
