5-Months Video Challenge Update

5-Months Video Challenge Update

It’s time for a video challenge update and I have recorded, edited, and uploaded 124 videos since February. There are still days where I am not sure what I will talk about, what I want to share, or even how much of my life I want to share.

But I started this challenge to not only get more comfortable with recording videos and to be more visible. I know that due to my upbringing and other experiences being seen has been one of my biggest challenges. There have been so many times where I felt or was told I didn’t matter, that what I had to say was stupid or that simply no one wanted to hear what was going on inside of my head.

It stunted me for a long time because I allowed it to hold me back. I didn’t write my first book because of it. I didn’t get all in into my life or business. I was always so worried about what people would think, concerned if they liked me or not that I just didn’t show up for myself.

There are still times I notice myself not going all in. I record a video with something on my heart or mind and end up deleting it and record something else – something safer, something that isn’t going to rock the boat too much.

This journey of blazing my own trail is faced with a lot of fear and doubt and yet…. and yet I keep showing up, slowly unraveling the programming that was infused into me. Interestingly enough though, as I am writing this there’s part of me that recognizes that I don’t comment on people’s posts not just because I don’t want to rock the boat but because it’s just not worth the time or energy. And the same applies to the videos I don’t create – it’s not worth the energy.

Personal growth is a fascinating journey and I love seeing the changes in being and thoughts through my video challenge update.

Also, if you ever want to hear about something specific, have questions I can answer, do let me know and I’ll record a video for you!

A challenge to myself – Daily Video for 1 Year

A challenge to myself – Daily Video for 1 Year

Sometimes I think we all go mad with crazy ideas, like a challenge to myself – daily video for 1 year. I mean I talk about pushing the boundaries of the comfort zone quite a bit. And I am the first to admit I don’t love doing “live” videos and have been staying away from doing video altogether. 

I’ve been slowly working on video content but even with all the inspiration, I’ve not done a great job. And since January was totally focused on working out my blog content for this blog here and The Rebels Den – I have a bit more time to pose a challenge to myself.

And we will be facing a few changes and transitions over the next coming year and the last few weeks, I felt called to do them and to not talk myself out of them, I am sharing with you that my self-imposed challenge is to do daily videos for 365 days. 

I will release the first video on February 15th, 2021. I plan to actually work ahead just a little because of editing and such but I think that if I can stay a week ahead then I can do this for certain. I suspect editing will take 30-ish minutes or so as I plan on keeping the videos short 5-10 minutes.

Topics will vary for sure and cover personal development, music, art, food and life. I will talk about my daily doings, some of the challenges, and anything else comes to mind.

So now I want to dare you to do something that you’ve been putting off, or wanting to do and challenge yourself to make it happen. I will be using this thread in The Rebels Den Community to check-in for accountability as well as here on the blog and share some insights!
