When bad things happen we get frustrated, annoyed, disappointed. When multiple bad things happen in a day or week it’s easy to feel down, or worse, like the world is against you. But, have you ever looked back at how you got to where you are? What do you see? When I look back at the time I was homeless, carless and had no studio I realize that everything amazing I have now was from that “hard” time. So, let’s talk about how you can do hard things.
Ever have a deadline or goal for yourself and it feels like everything is getting in the way? I mean doesn’t the world know you have things to do! Or, maybe you’re like me and you do a lot in one day. And, it feels like if you hit one red light or if your computer takes too long to upload you are going to run out of time. How can you create space in your day, week, life to be surprised? Or, at the very least so that you don’t have to rush?
Raise your hand if you can’t take a compliment? Yeah I raised mine halfway. I’m getting much better but I feel like I used to excuse away any compliment about my looks, my success and anything in between. But, wouldn’t it be so cool if we could not only say thank you when someone tells us we rock but also shared our own amazingness? I think so! So this week, what’s one thing you can brag about to several people? Who will you tell first?
Who knows, you might just get to use that brag to do more of that cool thing and then you may find yourself doing more of what you rock at for a living.
My first date with my husband was because a friend of mine complained one too many times about a lost scarf. It drove me nuts to hear a repeated complaint. So, I offered her my scarf in exchange for a date with my now husband.
Complaints are not a bad thing. But, if you keep them around then they are. Because the time you spend complaining about the problem is actually procrastination. This week, notice when you make the same sort of complaint. What can you do to solve that problem and remove that complaint? What would getting rid of that complaint allow you to do more of?
Got a problem with saying “yes?” Well, then this week I want you to find power in saying “no.” The more often you say no the more control you have in what you get to do! I know you don’t want to miss out on things but some things are not for you and actually take away options for you to say “yes” to you! So, if you’re an over scheduler what would happen if you responded to every request with “ooh, let me look at my calendar and get back to you.” Or, “I think I have something but let me see if I can reschedule it.”
What would happen if you left space for the surprise?
Ever asked the universe for a sign and then wonder when you were going to see that said sign? Well, sometimes, or probably often, we get the sign or answer we weren’t looking for. And, it’s important that we accept that answer. That doesn’t mean don’t do the thing you wanted to do. It just means that the way you wanted it to go isn’t the best way. I think we don’t always know what’s best for us. Or, we need to go through another step before we can get what we wanted. So, instead of waiting for the sign you want. Accept the sign you get and take another next step. What new steps will you take today?
Have you told people what you’re up to and then feel like no one is listening? Or, worse, that they just don’t care? I so hear ya! But, in this week’s ‘Notes 2 Inspire’ I’ve got tips for you to get out there and keep sharing! You got this!
How do you react when your plans get rained out? This week’s notes 2 inspire came from that exact happening. Yep, the cooking class on my retreat got rained out in the middle of it…with the chicken out! Find out how it went down in my vlog below.
They saying that curiosity killed the cat but I think that’s to keep people from being curious. Actually, if you are more curious you can learn so much more about others and they, in turn, will want to learn more information about you and what you do! Practicing being curious, letting others impress you, will actually help you network and build relationships. More on this in this week’s vlog of inspo.
If you are wanting to uplevel your life, make a certain amount of income then you have to put those aspirations in how you run your business and schedule your life! Would someone who is making $100k, $500k or more be doing ALL the work? This week’s “notes 2 inspire” asks you what you should be doing and what you should be delegating.
