Hi guys!! So, I was talking to a friend of mine recently. I was telling her how often it is that I don’t try things that I am interested in or chase dreams because, I feel like I just don’t know enough. I am not funny enough or smart enough.
The truth is we are all magic. Infinitely we have more powerful than we think and we can do, be and say whomever we choose. All we really need to do is change our thinking.
First things first: MOTIVATION!!
If we are truly going to make all of our dreams come true. We are going to have to start believing it! If day in and day out you’re constantly thinking “I can’t”. That is all that you will know. All that you will be is “I can’t.”
I know first hand that believing in yourself can be hard work. Luckily there are so many tools to help you to change your thinking. Here are a few of my favorites.
Write a manifesto!!
Manifesto- A public declaration of intentions, opinions, objectives, or motives, as one issued by a government, sovereign or organization.
Write a personal one and really rev yourself up! Make it so good that not chasing your dreams is scary. What are your intentions for you life? Who will you be? If you need help here is a link that should help out. http://www.groundedandsurrounded.com/write-your-manifesto/
Affirmations are life!!
Your mind is a muscle. So work it out! Tell it everyday how powerful it is. Tell it how powerful you are. Tell it how amazing your day will be. How amazing your future will be!!
If you are having a hard time coming up with some here are some that I like. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0lkCrPjmwks
Become the student!!
I don’t know how is one of the lamest excuses in my opinion. Solely because there is so much information freely given that not knowing is at this point an invalid excuse! I am not saying that learning is always easy. I am not saying that the information is right in front of you. I am saying that the information is there for the taking! So go and get it!
Go to the library!
Most cities have great libraries. There are over 100,000 libraries in the U.S. so finding one probably won’t be too difficult. The walls are teeming with information. Did I mention that the library is free? I am sure that you can learn pretty much anything that you need to. I cannot even list all the things that I have learned from library books.
There’s so many things to learn on the internet. From YouTube, to Webinars to free courses. If you can find a connection you can find what you need! One site that I have been getting emails from is https://www.coursera.org/. The have plenty of online courses from many different colleges. Some are even free!!
ASK FOR HELP!! If you are interested in photography and know a photographer, ask to shadow them! Interested in fashion? Ask someone that you know to teach you to sew.
OH!! And don’t forget to love yourself!! You’re magical!!
