The fear that holds you back is often times an irrelevant fear that is completely made up in your head. You can do more than you think you can. It all boils down to how bad you really want it, staying consistent, and blocking out all the nonsense that states otherwise.
We are our own worst enemy.
I know I have probably had 100 ideas, started each of them 27 and a half times just to be right back where I started because I have self-doubt like a mother (but really, I am a mother and this is my lame attempt at being a gangster).
We can do much more than we allow ourselves to do. So why do we self-sabotage things? What is the deal? We encourage people so that they have the ability to take that next step all the time as mothers and spouses and friends. Why is wanting to do something more for ourselves so much harder? Is it the fear of people thinking that you may not know what you are actually doing, even though you know your friend has an amazing talent and could go far?
Stop it now. You have to start realizing that you are just as good as something as your friend is of their talent. You are capable of doing the things you want to and succeeding. You really are. You have the ability. You just need a little boost of courage – and I don’t mean liquid courage. I know my blog has sounded like a broken record with the starting over, and taking the first step is the hardest, and blah, blah, blah. I think that now I really believe myself! I just need to now figure out what it is that I am trying to do (That is key right – ha!).
They Say You Will Know.
I am hoping that is really true. I keep writing down ideas as they pop into my head. I know there are a couple things that I want to do and I will get them done as they are pretty normal things. There are a couple things that will take a little more dedication and discipline that I just need to have a “come to Jesus” meeting with myself about. Even in these little things that I want to do, they aren’t what I want to do for like a living or purpose, they are more to get me jumpstarted in that direction like they are on my journey to find out what I really want to be doing. I feel as if taking the long road is usually my style. It may take longer but is a more comfortable route for me. I like comfort, but still feel like I won’t be 100% comfortable.
I Will Get There – Want To Join Me?
No, this isn’t the part where I sell you something. I am serious – do you want to join me on this journey?
