You are exactly where you need to be.

I know sometimes, maybe most of the time, it can feel like this isn’t true. But, I promise you, it *is* true.

Even if you’re currently working at a job you hate.
Even if you’re trying to figure out how to get out of a bad relationship.
Even if you’re barely rubbing two nickels together.
Even if you’re working on healing from the inside out.

Of course, I’m not talking about true tragedy or situations of that nature.

I’m talking about the life circumstances with which we all have to deal – many of which are the result of our own choices, some that are not.

In any case, wherever you are RIGHT NOW is where you need to be, but it DOES NOT need to be where you stay!

Trust me, I’ve asked myself countless times why I’m in a certain *place* with my work, my career, heck even why I decided to “take the job” with Beautycounter.

But you guys, IT HAS ALL LED ME TO MORE OPPORTUNITIES than I could have imagined.

Opportunities to meet new people, to be challenged in new ways, to learn new skills and new information, and to learn how to better lead women in their own quests for self-improvement.

I don’t take ANY of my own journey for granted, as it has all led me to where I am with the perspective and experience that I have.

You are exactly where you need to be, but you don’t need to stay there. Make a plan, move ahead, move towards growth and whatever it is within your soul that is seeking to come out. We are all waiting for you.

    Diane, you are xactly where you need to be saying exactly what you’re saying to me!

    I needed to hear this more than you can imagine and literally at the exact second it popped up on my screen. Thank you.

    Ps- I miss your Build a Badass Business podcast days, your periscopes and thank you for introducing me to Bryan Tracy! And I always thought to myself you took “that job” ‘cause your a hustler baby and I want you to know! It ain’t about where you been but where you’re about to go! But you already know that. ✌🏼

    • Thanks, Yalda- I’m thinking of how to bring back a mindset-oriented podcast, I just don’t know what form it’ll take. When the time is right, it’ll happen! I appreciate your encouragement!

    I also needed my awareness rekindled.

    I needed this! As I’ve been a stay at home mom for awhile now looking for part time work (with not much luck) but I know it will happen when the time is right! I’m where I need to be with my kiddos. Thank you!

    This just hit me right between the eyes today…I am in a place I never thought I would be, and trying to go forward and figure out who I am now and what I want my life to look like. And yes, being sad about a lot of wasted time and bad choices and hurtful words that were spoken over me. But still….there is hope for the future. And I get to decide what that future looks like…for me. And no one else is going to decide that or take that away from me!

    I got some seriously dissapointing news when I came into work this morning. I’d already prayed about it and gotten renewed strength from that and then reading your and your affirmation “you’re exactly where you need to be” really resonated with me. Thank you.

  9. K says:

    I’ve been dealing with a lot of little things lately that keep building up, and this post came at the perfect time. Thank you! <3

    This hit me right in the feels. After a week of intense professional and personal stress last week, plus the overall “impending doom” feeling of having put on weight (eating out/travel/wine) after taking on a high-stress job (that I love, don’t get me wrong – I just haven’t hit a stride with it!), I tried to sit down and meditate at the end of the week and when I did a scan of what my body was saying, it “said” clearly – I FEEL SICKLY. HELP ME. Cue guilt, self-apologies, and the start of some good-old IIN-style greens/water/sleep/self-care. I didn’t realize how far I’d drifted from what I’d learned! My body is clearly detoxing, I feel beaten down (but hopeful), and this is NOT what I had planned to start my 40’s….but this reminded me that I am where I need to be and that there is something I’m supposed to be learning from both the journey to this low – and the journey back out. Thank you. <3

    So true… and life happens FOR you… not TO you… everything in life has a lesson and we are all going through it. You do have a choice in how your life proceeds. You may not see the lesson in the moment, but just like you said… thinking back… all those choices you made got you to where you are and exactly where you need to be.

  12. Anne says:

    Really needed to read that today, thanks 🙂
