Made for Me

Last night, like many like-minded women in our country, I went to the movies.  Not just a typical night rom-com movie though – but, rather, I went to see the new movie by Rachel Hollis titled, , Made for More.  This film is all about Rachel and her husband’s company “Rise” and their dream to help others become the best versions of themselves. The film was done in a documentary style featuring Rachel and her Rise team putting on conferences throughout the country. I knew it was going to be good because I had just finished her New York Times Bestseller, Girl, Wash Your Face.  Her uncanny ability to be vulnerable, open, and honest about her journey to where she is today – following her dream, demonstrates that every woman can create the type of life they envision for themselves.  The core message is that we all have what it takes to make our dreams happen if we are willing to put in the time, effort, and ultimately learn to be our best selves each and every day.
As I am starting my own coaching business, this movie really resonated with me – I am choosing to step into uncertain times as Dave Hollis spoke about in the movie.  I don’t know exactly how this chapter in my life will look, but I know I will find success, but I will also struggle at points as I learn.  We each have goals and passions that make us feel alive and create a sense of excitement for what is to come.  This business is definitely my “more” and why I am up at 4:45 in the morning today. I am making the time to make my dream happen because I am the only one that can do that, after all, it is MY dream.
Besides giving its viewers a good kick in the pants, the movie also gives some practical advice for making positive changes in your life and how to set out to make a goal reality.  Rachel talked about how each of us can work to be really effective and how we each need to select one goal to work on at a time.  Just one.  I think this is so liberating – one goal, that is so realistic and relieving!  Find 1 hour 5 days a week to spend building and cultivating this dream and see what happens. It is this type of “stuff” that really makes goals attainable and possible.  I know how to break down my goals into bite-size chunks and make that happen.  I am made for whatever I want and I choose more.
