Have you ever been really excited about what your’re about to start doing for yourself, I mean really on fire and ready to get it going? Well, one of the first things people (read me) do in this situation is to go online to get ideas from other people in their chosen industry or dream job. Leave it to the old information highway to be both a blessing and a curse to our self-esteem and confidence sometimes. So, half past your search while looking at someone else’s page, photos or bio and all their accomplishments, you suddenly feel like now isn’t such a bad time to climb back into bed, ball up in the infamous fetal position and rethink your goals.
There are a lot of hard working, successful people of all walks of life who should be proud of their successes. Often times the “results” you see in someone’s public life give no indication of the sacrifices, time and discipline that wen’t on in their private lives to take the center stage.
My Pull It Together suggestion for you reading this is simple …
Don’t allow these “instantly famous” folks to make you to abandon your dream because your effort didn’t take off right away. To those who are always winning, don’t forget to include in your message that you skated over some mess ups and real losses to arrive where you are. As a bonus, add fear to the success mix.
If you’re not the slightest bit uncomfortable in your next steps, your destination isn’t grand enough. <– Take Small Steps if you must, but Think BIGGER Lovey!
Lastly, be willing to ask for and extend help … not everyone is waiting in line to hate on your next steps. You’d be surprised how many people want to and need to see you become successful. Now, let’s get to it!
Until Next Time Lovey,
