Needless to say I will be doing one again, but this time a million times better.
I have thought about this long and hard. Success to me isn’t the actions I’ve taken, it’s actually my perspective on the outcomes of my actions. Just starting, just having a go and creating something that’s never been done before, no matter how terrified I was – that to me is a success.
The actual retreat itself was insane. It was one of the hardest, craziest things I’ve ever done and in the end it cost me money, health and I swear, a little of my soul. It took me over a month to return to normal, but looking back there is no greater achievement than following through on something that most people thought was impossible to pull off by myself in 6 months’ time. I learnt so much, SO MUCH. It was like going to an intense business course for life. Now THAT is success. I am beyond grateful for what I learnt.
Needless to say I will be doing one again, but this time a million times better. The most imperative thing I learnt is that, you are never ready, well you don’t THINK you are, so if you’re battling in your mind about taking the plunge and you “don’t think you’re ready”- then it’s the perfect time to do it.
