Challenge, situation or circumstance I have been asked: How do you do it?
This is a simple enough question, except that I have struggled to give the answer because I just do. It is such an automatic process because it is something that I have always done.
I have very little room for bullshit such as excuses, whining and complaining. I get an idea and if it excites me enough I work towards to make it happen. Like running a 14-Day Coloring Challenge that in the middle of creating it prompted me to redo the entire website for my coloring page collection.
But sometimes one must dig deeper for the bigger vision. So here is my process:
- I get clear on what I wanted
- I create a vision of the result I want to achieve
- I do the work required to make it happen
This isn’t always as easy as it seems because obstacles and hurdles come up and try to get in the way. Fear, frustration, and self-doubt will trip you up and others, including your ego, will tell you that you can’t do it.
I was told I am a failure but if failure means going to school, graduating with two degrees and raising my children well, then I have succeeded! I win!
To gain the confidence, you must do the work and once you do the work all those negative voices will be silenced!
Going after your goal is scary and you will hear that you are not smart enough, that you are not good enough but who the heck are those naysayers? What do they know? They only know what they believe about themselves – because they didn’t go to college, you can’t go to college. Because they were told to work a job for their rest of their lives, they can’t have a business of their own and neither can you!
Well to hell with that!
Go and get clear on your dreams and turn them into focused oriented goals!
