The picture above is a view of one of my favorite places on earth: Maderas Beach, Nicaragua. This view, that I can confirm is spectacular, the walk up is not!
As is the case with most of our goals in life!
****Especially if you are an entrepreneur****
People either scare you silly or tear you down or set you strait but our thoughts alone, well at least mine, are scary enough!
But what is even more frightening is the thought that I could go back to a time when I followed ANYONE elses idea of my life.
If you're a freedom seeking, life to the fullest living, head over heels about freedom entrepreneur you know the rat race is not for you!
It's almost like an arrow that strikes from behind right through my heart pulling me towards freedom, LIGHT LIFE!
You can't even look away or let anything stop you .
It's kind of like climbing that hill to get THIS VIEW.
Its been about 5 years but I still remember how steep that hill was!
You and I are climbing, building something everyday step by arduous step. Until the sound of howler monkey's wake us up from this entrepreneurial journey! letting us know we made it!
But many entrepreneurs I see are still running the rat race!
On flat land following the cheese, or posting whatever they can to get 1 like and then complain about it!
It's NOT about the LIKES if you are in it UNTIL YOU SUCCEED!
IT'S NOT ABOUT THE SHARES WHEN YOU JUST STARTED!
Heck when you have been at it!
It's about your message.
It's about your work on this planet!
The people who make it KNOW THIS!
Don't give in to your petty, lower, status quo loving, inner sabotage!
BE THE ENTREPRENEUR WHO IS GOING TO DO WHATEVER IT TAKES!
If you hit a wall climb it.
If you find a road block remove it!
If your page is silent REVIVE IT!
YOU are the life blood not your followers!
You make it juicy or sour!
Full or empty!
Most of all remember that at the end of this steep journey is a beach waiting for you.
Don't give up before you make it there!
For a while now I've been fearless promoting my brand. So much so that it has caused a bit of an identity crisis.
Really I sit back and think:
"why did I start this journey"
"when did it become about attention or money or whatever flavor of the month"
And on and on!
I was a life coach and then a business coach and finally a social media strategist.
I CAN do all these things.
In fact the biggest problem I have is that I believe I can do anything.
We all CAN!
But that doesn't mean I will or even that I want to.
And that brings me to today's mind hack.
We can all fill in the blank.
Be who we want.
I have built my brand on that.
But what if that blank is not what you are happy with after all?
What if you have tried it all and hit your wall?
Well, that is why it's BLANK.
You fill it in!
Again and again and again!
I CAN be whoever I want!
I CAN fill in the blank with whatever I WANT!
And so can you.
I have and will continue to reinvent myself.
Its the nature of my life.
I am here to give you the inspiration to do the same.
Fill in the blank with whatever MAKES YOU HAPPY, inspired, passionate.
But make it happen!
At every stage of what you plan in your life there will be a moment you will ask yourself, to quit!
It might happen all of a sudden or built on the momentum of disappointments over time.
I would say 90% of the times I have quit I just was not paying attention to the signs, the little messages your mind and body use to share if they want to cooperate or not!
For example, my most common tell is watching TV!
Whilst having a perfectly long list of intentions and goals, I often find myself binge watching another netflix show that takes me away from the long list at hand.
Not only does it make me feel out of flow but it also breaks esteem by stopping me from keeping my word to myself.
Everyone has a tell!
Everyone has a way they self sabotage and end up quitting and thereby regretting they ever started!
Yours may be similar which is why I am here to share my strategy to ensure you don’t get into a quitting slump!!
First we must establish that EVERY TIME you lose focus on your goals you are effectively quitting whether its for the day or the time being YOU ARE in fact QUITTING!
Lets not be side tracked in niceties and politeness, because your bad habits are killing your dream!
If I had nothing better to offer you then in this post it would be to recognize the ways you avoid doing the work you were put on this earth to do!
Second, now that you own it be ready to change it or to do what has helped me and schedule your bs hours.
Monday I have 6 hours scheduled of BS! Do nothing regarding my business and most of all focus on myself and my joy!
It's not easy but along with scheduling those BS Hours I encourage you to schedule equal or greater time on your Goals/ dreams.
For those of you too free spirited to schedule, may I remind you, a free spirit is often accompanied by a disoriented life. If you are happy there by all means enjoy it.
But if you know you have a purpose and a message to transmit then get your ish together and at least schedule ONE habit or goal you will work on to get something done.
All I want to get through to you today is how important it is to make time for your dream and if you are like my clients it can sometimes be difficult to pin you down you have too many passions too many projects too many priorities!
But these are NOT ALWAYS your true purpose.
So wake up and get down to the business of what you are meant to do to leave your legacy!
as per building your legacy I am hosting my May free coaching sessions this week and nex week only! If you would like a free coaching session message me here:
Lets GET THIS DONE!
If you don’t stand for something you won’t stand for anything!
