Anything We Want

September 4, 2010

Here it is, early September, yet I’m still stuck in a New Year’s frame of mind. Why? Because back in January I documented what I wanted to do with this year… you know, the resolution. And as I sit here today, I realize that I’ve actually reached my goal. Many people who know me probably don’t know that my #1 priority this year was to transition into web design and development full time. It has always fascinated me, and I’ve made several past failed attempts at making the transition. Until now. While eating breakfast this morning I realized that I’ve actually done it. And while I’m still in my rookie season, I see no reason to believe that I can’t make it to the hall of fame someday. Eighteen months ago I was an insurance agent, and now I’ve got a firm understanding of some fundamental coding languages, and my knowledge grows more and more everyday. The two professions seemed worlds apart for me even just six months ago.

For those of you who know me as an insurance professional, I want you to know that my work in our industry has only just begun. I am far from finished. Over the last several months it’s become clear to me that what I have to offer the industry is taking shape in other ways. I will post more information on my own professional transition soon enough.

But let me come back from my tangent.

We are so fortunate to live in a world where we can become and achieve anything we want. This is a world where anything is possible. With the freedom of information and the increasing speed of communication, we’re able to gain knowledge and make contact with people and organizations that was never previously possible. We can educate ourselves without paying costly tuitions. That is the true fanfare of social media, and this technology revolution that we are living through!

If you are looking to make a change in your life, either personally or professionally, I can tell you from experience that now is the time to do it. Even if you only have one hour a day to commit to it, don’t miss that hour. Real change and progress takes daily commitment. And while I’m still fresh into my journey, I hope that you’ll join me on your own journeys to becoming anything you want.
