How many ebooks, cheat sheets, templates… have you downloaded, maybe looked at them, and let them sit on the computer or your desk?
How many times have you believed that someone else will hand you a magic wand that will solve all your problems only to realize it’s not what you need?
How much time have you spent watching other people’s webinars, trainings, and challenges, only to figure that you already know this or so much more?
I’ve been there.
I’ve done the same.
I always thought others must know something I don’t. If only I’d learn their strategy, if only I’d use their system, if only I’d have their skills…
And I kept looking to others instead of trusting I know what’s best for me.
I believed others have it all figured out and I have still so much to learn.
Nothing wrong with learning, we all need to learn every day. But it’s different if you are purposefully learning something to help you with your vision and goals. The problem is when you are collecting “knowledge” that you don’t know if you’ll ever use it or need it, “just in case” to not miss something.
I also compared my website, my videos, my posts, my results… with those who had great engagement, big following and made 6 or 7 figures. I got frustrated when I didn’t see results and felt overwhelmed when I was forcing and pushing instead allowing it to flow.
It took me a long time to start believing in myself.
To realize that I am on my own journey.
And accepting that I know enough.
That I have what it takes.
That I can do it MY WAY.
Not only that, but that MY WAY is the best way for me.
Not what others are doing,
how others are living,
what others are experiencing…
but what I do,
what I create
and how I live.
YOU ARE YOUR OWN AUTHORITY.
YOU with your own vibe, words, emotions, past, and future, struggles and wins, breakthroughs and dreams, with your own flow, in your own time, at your own pace…
Be proud of it. Own it! And keep on shining.
