I cannot tell y’all how long it took me to finally make a blog. I have been talking about doing this for a little over a year now. Yeah I said it. It’s embarrassing. The main things that constantly held me back were doubt, insecurity, and fear that I wouldn’t be needed because there are so many people that already do what I want to do.
Here are some things I had to remind myself:
1. Being my own person is my super power. There isn’t another me, no one can do what I do exactly like me because I’m me and that’s my super power. No matter how many bloggers/entrepreneurs post about the SAME stuff.. we are all different and unique in our own way! That’s such a beautiful thing. We ALL bring something fun, awesome and unique to the table!! No one should feel inferior because you feel like you won’t be needed or valued. I’ll be the first to say, I WANT to hear what you have to say, and there are other people that will too!
2. No failures.. just lessons. I’ve done my best to create this outlook for myself so I don’t get stuck in the negative. I don’t want to look at failures. I want to know what I learned, and how I can be better next time. Life is trial and error. If we never try, and LEARN from it how will we know how to be better?
3. The best accomplishments I’ve made in my life so far, did not come from chilling in my comfort zone. It came from stepping out, showing up, and working hard. I had to remind myself not to get comfortable, to keep pushing for more. No matter what the outcome was, my work ethic, and my passion drove me, and God carried me.
4. Stop putting so much thought into what other people will think. No matter where you go, how many followers you have, likes, shares, money.. no matter what it is, there will always be people that don’t like you or people that won’t support you just because it’s you. They may not even have a valid reason.. but it’s inevitable that its going to happen. Shake it off. You’re not the only one that struggles with it. everyone has haters. Be you, and don’t be afraid to be you. You are a beautiful thing.. You’re God’s creation. He made you unique in your very own way! Own it!!!!
As long as it took me to do this, I wish I would’ve told myself these things In the beginning, but that’s okay because I’m here now doing exactly what I want to do and I couldn’t be happier with it. I hope this inspires you to go do something big that you’ve been wanting to do for a long time and maybe some of those things I talked about have been holding you back. It’s okay!! It happens to everyone we are all human! Just remember there is NO ONE LIKE YOU!!! You’re YOU!! You are Fearfully and wonderfully made!! THAT is your superpower!!
