Lately I’ve been feeling a bit “meh”. I don’t know whether it’s because I am in dire need of a holiday or the fact that it still feels like winter!!! whatever it is.. it’s rubbing off on me and I am feeling a bit demotivated.
You get to a stage and you think, what am I actually doing with my life?? So I realised it’s time to create the life I actually want. I read the most amazing article by Dawn O’Porter titled “Tell self doubt to do one” (link will be added below) and I was completely blown away. I could not have read this article at a more pivotal time in my life. Dawn you have inspired me to be more proactive, more confident in myself and to just go for it. What’s the worst that can happen?
Time for women to take over! P.S. Below is me and Dawn, for anyone wondering lol.
- Rule number 1- don’t worry be happy (sorry for the cheese)
If you haven’t got everything figured out yet don’t worry, good things take time. Focus on the things you like doing or the things you want and roll with that. I usually create a vision board at the start of the year, just to visualise what I would like to achieve each year. We don’t have to have it all figured out yet, this will come in time.
- Rule Number 2- Be confident
Look at me being a little preacher, this is definitely something I am still working on but it’s all a work in progress. It’s nice being in your shell but once you prove to yourself what you can do, no one can stop you.
- Rule number 3- Create a goal and smash it
It’s so easy to have a plan and get lost along the way. The best advice I can give is to write down your main goals and stick them on your bedroom wall. That way every morning you will be reminded of what you want. Not only will this keep you motivated but you will start to realise that over time, your every move will contribute towards your goals.
- Rule number 4- Do not give up! I repeat do not give up
Life is hard, like really hard. There will be obstacles that will either stop us from our goals or send us in a new direction. But this does not mean that we should give up. Everything is a learning curve and if you work hard you will get what you want.
- Rule number 5- Don’t get lost in the sauceeee
Gratitude is key- MAJOR KEY ALERT!
Remembering how far you have come and being thankful for everything in your life will make your journey so much more enjoyable. Success is such a great feeling but if you do not recognize how far you have come and be appreciative, then it was not worth it to begin with. Now go out there and smash it!
