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!
