Myfiancé (first time writing that woo!) has turned me on to some really motivating and inspiring podcasts about growing a business and also surviving everyday life, basically. What I was reminded of today is that to make something happen, especially in building a business, you need to know how to be a leader of 1. Yourself. You have to have a true passion to put your heart, soul, absolute determination and leadership into your work. This excited me because right now I feel full speed ahead. I’m more than 110% dedicated and passionate about where I’m going and have so many loaded ideas. It’s going to take a lot to finally get through them all- paper & penning a lot right now!
Research is key. I research constantly, gaining so much fantastic information every single day. It keeps me motivated and on a path, my path! It keeps me moving forward and keeps me from becoming bogged down or overwhelmed. It’s super exciting to be going through this process. It’s challenging and rewarding on so many levels and right up my alley.
The other thing I was reminded of today is that there is not one day that should go by where we’re not learning something. Learning something new, whether it be on topic with a passion or maybe just by discovery keeps us happy as humans and will also save us from the horrible burn outs that come with overexposure to the same old same old boring and cranky lives that a lot of people lead, but don’t have to!!!
I’m just beginning this journey of starting a business. I’ve dabbled in it before but have never really gone full speed ahead. It’s never felt like this before. I’ve never felt so determined and fulfilled. I think that’s the key word- fulfilled, and this is just the beginning!! I’m finally putting all of my excess & freely creative energy into my work. It’s my goals I’m working towards and each step forward is a huge huge success no matter how small the step may be.
One of the most important lessons I’ve learned over the past few months is to not fear failure. I’m going to fail along the way, everyone does. I think the fear of failure has held me back for a long time. Not anymore. We learn from our mistakes and failures. My failures will only make me stronger and better in the end. I think that barreling through the fear of failing has made me realize that when I do what I want and eliminate the fear, more often than not, I succeed. I’ve already had a few failures but again, have now learned how to make them become successes. In the end, it’s success.
