The new hot topic that is radiating through social media is:
You’ve seen the memes/quotes circulating through social media right?
You’ve followed all of these accounts because you liked that some of the content was a reminder to yourself to stay accountable and work hard. Now, without realizing it, every third image on your feed reads something like:
“If you really want to do something, you’ll find a way. If you don’t you’ll find an excuse.”
“Making a big life change is pretty scary. But, know what’s even scarier? Regret.”
“Build your own dreams, or someone else will hire you to build theirs.”
Oh and I know you’ve been there. You go to lay down for bed and can’t really get into a deep sleep so you decide to scroll and next thing you know you’re on pages of mansions, cars, quotes much like those above, and downloading podcasts of successful entrepreneurs; letting your brain explode with dreams you never even knew you had. You feel like you’ve been holding your breath for the last hour and now it’s 3a.m. and you’re mentally and emotionally exhausted from the thought journey you just put yourself through.
And, honestly, I think the hardest part is getting yourself so worked up, unlocking you potential for those fleeting moments and feeling like you could conquer the world, just to wake up the next morning to your regular routine that, for some, makes them miserable.
Doesn’t that just make your heart hurt!?
Someone, somewhere, realized their magic. They discovered their driving force. But, they woke up this morning, shoved it in their heart’s lock box and went about their day quietly.
No. This month (heck, this year and for the REST of your life) we won’t stand for that.
We won’t wait.
And hey, before I go any further, this isn’t just for those called to be the “entrepreneur”. I believe that word is way more romanticized than the lifestyle really is. Don’t feel like this means that you have to quit everything and move across the country with 50 bucks in your pocket and hustle your way to the top. No, no. This applies to everyone. This applies to that person as well as the person who is trying to get that promotion but feels they have to wait for the right moment. This is for the person who knows they have an amazing idea that the group could really benefit from but is letting fear tell them it won’t be good enough. This is for the person who sees a need in their community that should be addressed but doesn’t want to be judged or even dismissed.
There is NEVER a right time. Your voice is ALWAYS valuable. You CANNOT please everyone.
Stop holding out for the moment you’ll be ready. You will never be ready to unleash your potential and become the person you’re meant to be. It just….happens. But, the only way it can happen is if you MOVE.
Helping yourself is an attracting force that pulls in opportunities you didn’t think you would have.
You want to get noticed by your boss? Go above and beyond. Arrive earlier. Leave later. Contribute to conversation and let your voice be heard with confidence. People will take notice, including your boss.
You want to be an actress? Take the role you thought was lame because at the very least, it’s experience. Take the role and ROCK it. Someone who knows someone who knows someone will hear about it.
Want to emerge into a specific industry? Network! Talk to people, meet people, and take people out for coffee, on you. Make people feel good and CONNECT.
Your actions, however small, will open doors. I promise that if you reach out, the universe will reach back. It just starts with you.
So this month, learn to take that first step. Find an avenue you want go down and start walking. Who cares if your first step seems wasteful? Nobody opens the right door out of 1 million their first try. I mean you’re quite literally standing in a white room with a million white doors trying to decide which is right.
It is a waste. Just OPEN one.
You are filled with some much magic you guys. So much potential lies within us. We were ALL put here for a reason. To meet a need. To lend a helping hand. To love. To contribute. Find where you’re meant to be in your life and go balls to the wall.
I believe in you and your potential greatness.
Just remember, potential energy is the BLUEPRINT of life. The only way to turn that potential energy into kinetic energy is to turn that plan into an ACTION. (A little physics class for ya!)
Go be magical.
