Forging a New Path

new-pathI’ve just made a big change in my life. I’ve left an amazing company called Infusionsoft, that’s on a worthwhile mission, where I worked with a talented leadership team that I had the pleasure of solving big problems for small business with, where I got to mentor smart ambitious people and teams, in a high-powered and high-paying job that I loved.

But it’s time for something new.

I’m now pursuing the unknown. Literally, the unknown. Armed with ideas, passionate views, a beginner’s mind and an entrepreneurial nature, the future is bright.

For the first time in a very long time, I am going to be patient with myself. I’m going listen to myself. Really pay attention to my inner being and observe the world to discover the big, scary, exhilarating, extraordinary possibilities that I can create. I know in the core of my being it’s the right thing to do, and that my leap of faith is exactly where I should be.

For the first time, I don’t have a story with a neat bow on it. And it feels liberating. You see, I’ve spent the better part of my life working my ass off pursuing success. And to most people, from the outside it looks like I’m doing all the right things. But my definition of success has changed. A new kind of success. A road less traveled. One that is more meaningful to me. Success that makes more of the kind of difference in the world that I am passionate about through bold ideas and change-inspiring action.

I believe more than ever before that my life’s purpose matters, and that any further delayed action is just an excuse. An excuse for comfort and security, for looking good, for being safe. Now I’m doing the work to acknowledge and do something about it. This time I’m willing to dedicate more of myself to the pursuit. I know that I can make the world different because I lived in it.

I’m forging a new path. I’m committed to being honest and open about it.

This is where you can follow me along my new path as I dig in and explore this new terrain. Come and connect with me on Twitter at @kathysacks.

    Yea! Good for you Kathy. I so feel the sigh of relief in your writing. Your journey and the recording of it won’t only allow you to find the meaning and purpose you seek, but it will also allow other movers and shakers to slow down and find the meaning and purpose in their own moving and shaking.

    I’m here so let me know how a brother can assist.

    Here’s to the living the questions and letting the answers come as they do.

    In the words of the great poet Jay-Z,
    “No compass comes with this life, just eyes.
    So to map it out you must look inside;
    sure books can guide you, but your heart defines you.” ~Song = Beach Chair

    So exciting! It was great working with you at Infusionsoft. Thank you for encouraging me to do the Landmark Forum. I think it set me on a new path that felt a little like a full circle. Infusionsoft is an amazing company but it feels good to be a free agent again and focused on what I am most passionate about: storytelling. Looking forward to reading more of your story and the awesome things you’re doing!
