“When doors open, it is still your responsibility to walk through them. So get stepping!!!” – Andrew P.
If you have ever had the opportunity to work with me, I start out by telling you that I have two rules.
RULE #1 – You are your own worst enemy.
RULE #2 – Who cares about the competition.
Rule #1 is the one I am about to focus on and rip apart. Are you ready?
So many times in life things leave us petrified by fear. Like the petrified forest in Muir Woods, nothing has changed in hundreds of years… Our own thoughts and perceptions in life is what holds up captive.
I meet so many smart, intelligent, creative minds… that are sometimes trapped by nothing else other than just themselves. So how does someone get out of it?
FOUR THINGS TO STEP OVER SO YOU CAN START STEPPING FORWARD!
1 – Get over yourself! Stop thinking that the world begins and ends with you… not everyone is watching you and you are not the best thing since sliced bread.
2 – You will make mistakes! The sooner you realize you are going to mess up, the easier it will be to accept it. You are not perfect. Just when you are able to take the step and have someone JUMP with you (www.jumpconsulting.net) then it will be easier along the way becasue I will look back and tell you “Don’t make that mistake. I did and it sucked!”
3 – You can’t always make everyone happy.Don’t let your fear of not for filling others plans for your life prevent you from moving forward. The more you know about yourself and who you are, the easier this will be. Not everyone is going to agree with your decisions, but in order to move forward with confidence, you need to be confident in yourself.
4- Stand up to the voices in your life that are not you. All too often, while trying to impress others, we give up self in order to for fill their projected outlook on our lives. THEY DON’T MATTER (to an extent). You must have a strong sense of self, direction, and passion to push forward. No family member, spouse, or friend can hold you back…unless you let them.
These are the same things that prevent us from setting goals. From turning dreams into reality. You attitude should be filled with I CAN. Not… “I can only if…” You must get rid of the stinking thinking, acknowledge that you are not perfect, you can’t always make everyone happy, and make a conscious promise to yourself to take a STAND in your life!!!!
You CAN do it. Why? Becasue no one else can do it for you.
If you would like that extra accountability, sounding board, and encouragement… consider shooting me an email. I love being a cheer leader and big doses of motivation to push you forward for YOUR OWN goals…
