All in all, I wanted to share with you the power that stories have on us. How much they shape our mindsets, what we believe about ourselves and our capabilities.
I was focused on, and only on, producing for my business but after some very real-life wake-up calls, I knew I needed to spread my life out a bit into some different buckets.
Most times, the feeling of “lesser than” comes from a lack of fulfillment and the disappointment that follows.
When I started using power statements regularly in my daily life I found my resiliency bouncing back against the cement walls that had seemingly shot out of the ground just to barricade me off a heck of a lot faster.
True, not all lemons are disasters, most are just soul-crushing speed bumps that you can crush in return by realizing the clarity, the empowerment, and the lessons learned or skills built.
After reading the book, Playing Big by Tara Mohr, I recognized that by playing small I was standing in my own way for success; preventing myself from the life I wanted to lead.
Mere seconds, minutes, and sometimes hours affect our beliefs at their core for the rest of our lives.
To put it plainly, to grow your own business, you must first grow yourself. Your beliefs, thoughts, ideals, values, abilities, and CONFIDENCE.
To every action, there’s a reaction… We can actually survive and thrive through a whole lot more than we think we can. We are innately strong and resilient beings!
I truly believe the relationships I made, the emotional knowledge I’ve gained, and the empathy I felt in connecting to others that were suffering in some of the same ways I was, led me to finding my purpose.
