Trusting Myself

Hello All,

On this journey there has been highs but mostly lows thus far. The highs, I have learned more things about myself than any other period of my life. I have also experienced tremendous growth during this period. On the other hand,  the lows include not feeling comfortable financially, feeling very alone in my struggle, and not receiving the response I wanted on our platforms.

It is during these times that I have to dig deep to remember why I am doing this. I wanted to help contribute my gifts to society in a meaningful way. I utilized my intuition, personality test, skills, interest, and hobbies to determine my direction and career path.  Making my own career was one of the most planned and evaluated choices of my life.

The problem is I want certainty and guaranteed success. And when my ideals don't match my hopes I begin to doubt myself. But, how could I expect not to fail when doing something new, I had to work extremely hard for anything else in my life. So I have made it thus far in life and my life has been pretty exceptional.

I just need a little reality check, instead of trusting in early results, I need to trust myself and be patient.

The Call

Hello All,

One of my favorite movies is The Field of Dreams, where a gentleman hears a calling, that tells him to build a baseball field where the ghost of the great legends of baseball play. I feel like my calling is to inspire people to take charge of their lives and create the life of their desire. The funny thing is I am trying everything I can to reach my audience and I know it hasn't even been 6 month yet but I am itching to make a difference. Similar to the movie, I'm not quite sure what I am building, however it is in my heart to do this and I will keep on moving forward until my vision and mission is accomplished. Anyone else out there feel the call?

Offense

Hello all,

I decided to look back at my life and how I have made decisions in my life. I realized that many of the decision I have made have been defensive or made out of fear. For example my former career, although I moved up swiftly through the ranks was chosen initially because I knew I could do it and I needed money fast. Often, my short term decisions were made out of fear and defensively, ultimately turning into decisions I was unhappy about long term.

Normally at this time I am solely focused on an external goal like career advancement, a raise, or diet etc, however this year my main focus is on an internal goal. I want to go on the offense this year and make decisions out of love. Love is the only reason I had the courage to chase my dreams. Love is the reason why I have the courage to put myself out their even if I may be ridiculed. And Love will be the reason why I will look back at my life and be satisfied. So I guess my goal is to Love the hell out of this year.

Refresh, Reflect, and Refocus

Hello All,

I know it has been a while but I had to unplug so that keep my sanity. I am posting so much content on social media that as an introvert (INFJ) I am drained after a few months and need to hibernate to gather energy.

What also happens is I get a chance to reflect on my successes and failures. This being my first startup means it is all a big fat failure. Not in the traditional sense like we are led to believe from our education system, I mean it is one big learning experience. Unplugging allows me to re-evaluate everything that I am doing, check in to see if I am in alignment with my goals and company objectives.

After refreshing and reflecting, I am finally able to refocus on the task at hand with renewed energy and most importantly, I am able to refocus.
