Believing in your dream is the only way to make it happen

I want to share with you my story, a story that was born in 2017, when I made a clear point in my life: I wanted to start building the foundations to make my dream come true, a dream that I cultivated for a long time: developing a work project within the next 5 years, that would allow me to resign from my job, a job that was not giving me satisfaction, a role I did not belong to, in order to move forward in search of my own path.

That is why, in the last few years, I created alternative sources of income, that allowed me to increase the flow of money that entered into my account, with the goal to slowly make my dream a reality: I was pursuing the purpose to  change not only my job, but my whole life.
At the beginning I paradoxically added fatigue to my days, my working hours increased with not much satisfaction, but my vision of my dream, of my great goal, always gave me a booster when my physical energy began to lower.

Meanwhile, in 2019 my daughter Frida was born and together with the joy of her coming into the world, my desire increased to find more quality time to dedicate to her, and at the same time, the desire to do it in a more responsible and conscious way grew in me. I invested the fruit of my work and efforts to generate small revenues that strengthened the project, but at that time I still did not visualize what could be the life project that could make me flourish as an individual.

In 2020 I met Davide on my way, a Professional Coach, who briefly shared his experience with me. This was an encounter that I will never forget and that marked a turning point in my research of a purposeful life and profession. After a few days of searching, I found EpiCoaching Academy and Cristina Campofreddo, MCC, as the best allies to realize the project of becoming a Professional Coach.

I started the ACTP Coach Training course with EpiCoaching Academy with great enthusiasm and a great emotional charge, but the more I carried on with the training the more resistance, fear and doubt around my project were growing in me. I wasn’t allowing myself to make my dream come true, I didn’t believe in it enough, I did not trust the dream and did not trust myself.

Since I have been accustomed for 20 years to ‘an ordinary job’ from 9 to 5, the idea of ​​being able to work independently,to be able to  plan my schedule and work from home, sipping a good cup of  tea, brought me to experience  a sense of guilt just for having imagined this dream. My idea of a job it was all about “spending 8 hours in an office”.  After about a year in coach training to pursue my ‘Masterful Coaching Diploma’, my project was at a dead end, I didn’t take a step yet to make it evolve.
My Mentor and Trainer Cristina Campofreddo, MCC kept telling me that until I started to fully believe in it, nothing would happen…. and nothing really happened.

On Friday November 12th, 2021 a person who plays a very important role in my life told me: “You need to create some space in your life for your dream to unfold, you need to use the energy you have to chase that dream”.  This was an eye-opening message for me!

On Saturday November 13th, 2021 I contacted my boss at work to inform him of my decision to resign. I spent the following Sunday to integrate the change, to managing the fear and the sense of guilt for what I still considered as gambling.

On Monday November 15th, 2021 I started working from home on my project, on my own dream, and in just one day I managed to take a bigger step than I had done in the past entire year!

On Tuesday November 16th, 2021 I signed a contract with my first coaching client and on Wednesday November 17th, 2021 I gave birth to a collaboration coaching project with a colleague.

In only 6 days I transformed my life ‘simply’ because I have chosen to follow a more congruent path, a path that is aligned with my values and my purpose. I have understood that nothing happens by chance and that Cristina, my Mentor and Trainer, was right: until you fully believe it, nothing will happen.

I have chosen to share my story and my personal experience here with the purpose to invite all those who read this message to always believe in yourselves and in your dreams, to always listen to the voice of your soul, to convey the healthy and natural fear that you might experience about the great transformation that you conceive, into positive energy that supports you and the manifestation of your project.

Yes, I’m still afraid of taking action to make my dream come true, but sharing and talking about this helps me to feel stronger. I help myself by helping you, too. I know I still have a long way to go, but now I do have the confidence and the energy to make my dream come true.

I’ll be waiting for you there, where all our dreams have already come true!

Credere in qualcosa è l’unica strada per farla accadere

 

Oggi voglio raccontarvi una storia che nasce nel 2017, quando ho messo un punto chiaro nella mia vita: porre le basi per concretizzare un’idea che avevo da molto tempo, riuscire entro 5 anni a sviluppare un progetto lavorativo che mi permettesse di distaccarmi da un lavoro che occupava gran parte della mia giornata senza soddisfarmi, senza che riuscissi a sentirlo mio, per andare alla ricerca della mia strada.

Sono nati così piccoli progetti alternativi che mi hanno permesso di aumentare le mie entrate economiche e di aggiungere, mattone dopo mattone, concretezza al proposito di cambiare vita. Certo, aumentava la fatica e, paradossalmente, aumentavano le ore in cui facevo attività che non erano necessariamente inclini alla mia soddisfazione personale, ma la visione del sogno, dell’obiettivo, mi dava maggiore carica quando le energie iniziavano a scarseggiare.

Intanto, nel 2019 nasceva mia figlia Frida e con la sua venuta al mondo aumentava il desiderio di trovare tempo di qualità da dedicarle, ma contemporaneamente cresceva in me il desiderio di farlo responsabilmente.
In questi anni ho investito il frutto dei miei sacrifici generando piccole rendite che fortificavano il progetto, ma ancora non visualizzavo quale potesse essere il progetto di vita che riuscisse a realizzarmi come individuo.

Nel 2020 ho incontrato sulla mia strada Davide, un Coach Professionista, che mi ha raccontato brevemente la sua storia. Questo è stato un incontro che non dimenticherò mai e che ha segnato il punto di svolta nella mia ricerca.
Qualche giorno di indagine mi ha permesso di individuare EpiCoaching Academy e Cristina Campofreddo, MCC, quali migliori alleati per concretizzare il progetto di diventare Coach Professionista.

Ho iniziato il corso di formazione ‘Masterful Coaching Diploma’ con EpiCoaching Academy con grande entusiasmo e carica emotiva, ma più andavo avanti e si avvicinava il momento in cui avrei dovuto iniziare a sentirmi coach e più dentro di me nascevano resistenze, paure e perplessità verso il progetto. Non mi stavo permettendo di concretizzare il sogno, non ci credevo.

Sì, perché abituato ad un lavoro ‘standard’ ormai da 20 anni, l’idea di poter lavorare autonomamente, di progettare questo lavoro da casa, davanti ad una buona tisana, faceva emergere in me un senso di colpa anche solo per aver immaginato questo sogno. Il lavoro nella mia testa era configurato solo ed esclusivamente nella modalità “8 ore in ufficio”.

Dopo circa un anno ero ad un punto morto del progetto e non muovevo un passo per farlo evolvere. Cristina, la mia Mentore e Trainer, continuava a ripetermi che fino a quando non avessi iniziato a crederci pienamente, non sarebbe avvenuto nulla…. e nulla infatti avveniva.

Venerdì 12 Novembre 2021 una persona che riveste un ruolo molto importante nella mia vita mi ha detto: “Hai bisogno di fare spazio al sogno, utilizza le energie che hai per inseguire quel sogno”. Questo messaggio è stato per me salvifico.

Sabato 13 Novembre 2021 ho contattato il titolare dell’azienda per la quale lavoravo per comunicargli la mia decisione di interrompere il nostro rapporto professionale. Ho trascorso la Domenica ad interiorizzare il cambiamento, a contenere la paura ed il senso di colpa per quello che ancora vedevo come un azzardo.

Lunedì 15 Novembre 2021 ho iniziato a lavorare da casa al mio progetto, al mio sogno, evolvendo in un giorno più di quanto non avessi fatto nell’anno trascorso.

Martedì 16 Novembre 2021 ho sottoscritto come Coach il contratto con il mio primo cliente.

Mercoledì 17 Novembre 2021 sono nati ulteriori progetti di collaborazione con una collega di corso.

In sei giorni la mia vita si è trasformata e ha seguito il suo percorso più coerente, allineato ai miei valori e propositi, e ho compreso che nulla avviene per caso e che aveva ragione Cristina, la mia Mentore e Trainer: fino a quando non ci credi tu, non accadrà nulla.

Ho scelto di raccontare questa mia storia, di condividere la mia personale esperienza con lo scopo di invitare tutti voi a crederci sempre, ad ascoltare la voce della vostra anima, a convogliare la sana e naturale paura che sempre accompagna un grande desiderato cambiamento, in energia positiva che sostiene il voi e il vostro progetto.

Vi racconto tutto questo perché ho ancora paura e parlarne mi aiuta a sentirmi più forte. Aiuto me stesso aiutando anche voi.
La strada è ancora lunga, ma ho fiducia ed energia per realizzare il mio sogno.

Vi aspetto laggiù, dove tutti i nostri sogni sono già realizzati!
