Live your life the way you want because no matter what you do, people will never run out of things to say against you. Their opinion is just that – their opinion! Don´t let other peoples agenda, judgement and insecurities run YOUR life!
Don´t waste your time trying to change their opinion or view on you. Just be the best version of yourself. FOCUS on what makes you happy and go do that!
When you follow your heart and when you trust your self; the experiences you have, the people you meet and the opportunities that come your way, all change your life in a good way.
How much time do you spend daily worrying about what other people think of you? How can you direct that FOCUS to something positive? What would you be able to do if you spend that time practising self-love and acceptance?
Perfectionism used to dictate areas of my life. As a young girl, I quickly learned that it was hard to impress the grown-ups.
I felt alone with my creativity. Without support and a mentor, all I had was my own perfectionist mind. All the way up into my twenties my inner perfectionist was a shadow that followed me everywhere.
Sometimes my perfectionist self would stop me from doing things I really wanted to do, because I was not thin, good, pretty, talented, or intelligent enough!
I was blaming the perfectionist in me for not being able to live the way I wanted. Instead of taking my power home, instead of trusting myself, I would just point my fingers at my obsession with being perfect.
“Oh, I can´t sell my art, it´s not perfect yet.”
“No, I can´t raise my prices, my work is not good enough.”
“I can´t put myself out there for the world to see” – because I still need to adjust some details and make my website, photos, Instagram… perfect.”
We humans seek perfection to win approval from others. We need to see that our self-worth as adults should be based on our own self-acceptance, not on the approval of others, and certainly not because we’re “perfect.”
We will never be 100% perfect, we will never be 100% confident in what we do – but who cares, right….we only have this one life to live…and we only get older (sad but true..) so why hold yourself back…why not push to create the life you dream of…and live with no regrets!
Don’t give your mind a chance to start second-guessing what you’re doing. Keep moving with the activity you’re working with. You’re the boss. You’re in charge. You make the decisions, and you can change your mind anytime you want, for any reason.
YOU are allowed to mess up! It does not make you less valuable.
YOU are allowed to make mistakes! You will still be super awesome – nothing or no one can change that!
You don’t have to follow the rules – you are the rule-maker!
In what areas of your life are perfectionism holding you back from getting things done and doing what you want? What first step can you take to TODAY to let go and set yourself FREE of perfectionism?
We all have dreams, passions and goals we would love to achieve. We believe that by reaching our goals, we will become happy, successful, confident, etc.
The hard truth is that pursuing a dream goal can be hard, overwhelming and frustrating. Why? Because it demands from us that we change things in our lives, that we make new habits, that we leave our comfort zone and do things that scare us.
We might even become paralysed with fear of failing, fair of being judged or fear of not having what it takes. So we stop ourselves and put our dreams on a shelf for us to admire all day, but we take no action.
Here´s the thing; No one has ever gained success from chasing their dream every once in awhile. No one has ever reached their goal just by thinking about it.
If you are serious about your dream, passion or goal, you must chase it like a playful dog chasing a ball – every day!
The good news is that you don´t have to feel overwhelmed and frustrated. The biggest pitfalls are believing you got to change it all at once, and that you have to get there fast.
Breathe deeply, slow down, shake your body, lift your head high. YOU CAN DO THIS. The secret to reaching your goal is to take baby steps – but take one step EVERY day!
Pursuing your goals in small daily steps are a beautiful way to take care of YOU – it is pure self-respect – it’s a way to show your soul LOVE and grow your confidence <3
Todays question is:
How often do you chase your dream goal? Every once in a while? Every day? What would happen if you started chasing your dream goal very day?
Today I´m starting up a 12-day mini coaching challenge with my Mastermind group! It´s just a fun + simple summer challenge to spark your way of thinking.
I´m gonna share the challenge here on my blog as well, so you can join the movement and take this chance to optimize your creative life.
Every day for the next 12 days I´ll post a life-changing or business-changing question. Something for you to reflect about, and hopefully use to make happy mini-changes in your daily life.
The idea is that my questions will help you take a daily break, pause and make sure you live your life the best way possible. This is not a course, just tiny sprinkles of inspirational questions.
Asking yourself the right questions is critical in moving forward in life and creating your dream business.
Creative thinking can help you figure out where your heart lies and what you really ought to be doing. To live in peace with your true values.
Remember that denial will take you NOWHERE! No one can grow with their head buried in the sand. You must look up and face your life and your issues head on. That´s when you learn, grow and make huge progress!
Are you ready?
How to participate:
1. Take some time to reflect about the daily question. Be HONEST with yourself. If you find it hard to answer, remember that the answer does not have to be perfect. The most important thing is that you face the question and give it your most honest answer. You can always go back and change your answer later if you think of something else.
2. I strongly recommend that you write your answer down in a notebook to really FEEL it and SEE it.
