Hey everyone, happy to see you here again and I hope you are having a wonderful day ❤
This goes under the category of building a business because I believe that in order to build a successful business you must stop holding yourself back.
Tomorrow is my birthday and even though life is very complicated with all that is going on, I’ve decided to stop holding myself back from achieving my dreams and goals just because of fear of failure, shyness and any anxiety I might feel. I want to live my life with my dreams in mind and not my hardships.
That is why I’ve launched my Patreon page, not just because I need help to found my dreams (and I do, lol) but also because it puts me further outside my comfort zone, like a fish outside the water, without the dying thing. I want to challenge myself and do better – Much better, without the fear that the world will implode on me 😉
I need to stop holding myself back on the things I want to achieve in my life just because we can’t afford it, or because of my paralyzing fears. I want to expect more from myself and do better even when life throws a wrecking ball on me. I want to help the people around me more and to push them to be what they want to be in life.
So here are the 4 steps I’ve already implemented:
- I cut my hair short (very short for what I’m used to), now why is this in these steps? Well… Cutting my hair this short is way outside my comfort zone, and I did that for me and only for myself, just for my own happiness (how awesome is that?). It’s an amazing feeling and what a relief, I can’t even explain how happy this made me, hehe.
- I organized and cleaned the closet room where I also have my writing space and desk. I cleared out junk that was with us for far too long and I also got rid of that ugly couch that been sitting there, gathering clothes and junk. For me, this was such a proud moment. This simple household item, truly hold me back (WOW).
- I went to my Old Good Habits, lol. I will explain… When I did most of the writing in my life, when life was much less hectic and stressful, I used to put tons of sticky notes on my wall about brainstorming ideas for my book and for my blog, had a monthly sticky note planner, lol, and lots more. I remember how motivated, inspired and creative I was, and I know by doing this will keep my dreams and goals at reach. So now that my space is all cleaned, organized and welcoming, I’ve put 8 white large papers on the wall, wrote the categories and my wall is now full of inspiring pictures, lots of sticky notes categorized by colors and my goals so I will continue to push myself even when it becomes harder to push.
- Going back to pen and paper. The digital world had completely taken over my life. I read a lot of digital books, I write my words on a computer or even on my phone, and I even draw on my tablet. Using pen and paper again is changing back the way I create and that feels amazing and wonderful. I journal much more through writing down my dreams and the Morning Pages, writing down everything that clutters my mind and stresses me out. I doodle again and just sketch down ideas fills me with creativity and inspiration 😀 Now I will still continue to do the massive writing on a computer of course, but taking notes, brainstorming ideas and writing down ways to improve my writing and life, I am happy to do it on my yellow legal-pad and with my favorite pen (and even a few highlighters) 😉
The most important thing that I wish for you to take from this post is no what happens in your life please don’t hold back on your dreams and goals ❤
That is all for this post, trying to keep it sweet and short 😉 What do you do to push yourself towards your goals and dreams?
