After two years of hard work, perseverance, and even a few setbacks, we have achieved the biggest goal we’ve ever set for ourselves. DevvelopU is officially LAUNCHED and available for download through iOS and Android!
Over the past few weeks, some people had asked us how we were feeling about the upcoming launch. “Stressed” was the only thing that could easily come to mind, but that really doesn’t answer the question. In fact, it’s really a poor choice of words, and doesn’t tell our story at all. I decided to take a piece of my own advice that I’ve written about in the past. I took a moment to reflect on how far we’ve come over the past two years, and as I thought about all of the good and bad leading up to launch day, it made me really appreciate our journey. So, instead of saying we’re feeling “stressed”, I think we can safely say we feel:
Excited. How awesome is it that we set a HUGE goal for ourselves, completely out of both of our comfort zones, and actually achieved it?!
Anxious. In fact, I’ve never felt more anxious about anything in my life. To know that we’re about to sling shot this product out into the public for the first time is so scary! The thoughts of “what if people don’t like it?” and “what if no one even uses it?!” have crossed my mind way too many times. Why is it that when we’re trying to achieve a goal, it’s SO EASY to be negative? For me, the negativity goes away when I remind myself about what I believe this product can do for those who give it a chance.
Optimistic. We truly believe that ANYONE has the ability to become the best version of themselves. And I believe with my whole heart that we’ve created something that can make a difference in the lives of others.
Proud. So incredibly proud that we set out to do something, and DID IT!!
And, last but not least… thankful. This experience has helped us both to grow in ways we never imagined, and appreciate each other in ways we never have before. We encouraged each other to think differently, learned about true partnership, and even challenged each other when we needed it the most.
Working alongside people you trust to achieve a goal is the most rewarding experience of all — that’s what DevvelopU is all about. And that’s why you should download DevvelopU, today!
