Have you ever wanted to do something so badly, but you didn’t feel ready for it, didn’t have the confidence to do it, you were worried about what people would say, or you just came up with too many excuses why you couldn’t, instead of even just one reason why you could?
Ever feel like you couldn’tÂ do something because you weren’t smart enough, talented enough, skilled enough, pretty enough, skinny enough…ready enough?
Well, I’ve certainly been there and I still DO go there at times.
Many of these judgements may come from other people, but they also come from that voice inside our head that’s telling us everything needs to be “perfect” before we can show the world. It’s that voice of doubt trying to stop us from living up to our true potential and feeling the fulfillment we desire.
The truth is, we’re all amazing enough to do whatever the hell we want to do in any moment we want to do it in.
Yes, we might not be as good as we can be, but we are always as good as we need to be to get started. (TWEET IT!)
There’s never any reason to not take that first step forward and go after what you want, because the only way to get better is to start, right?
It’s not about getting to a place where you never have those fears or doubts. It’s about learning how to react to those voices…
You can either choose to follow them or go right through them.
And that’s why I finally created my first YouTube channel.
I’ve been wanting to create a YouTube channel for a while now and I had a long list of reasons why I shouldn’t, couldn’t and why it was never the right time. Finally,Â I made a decision to run right through those thoughts and take that first step forward.
Creating this video was one thing, putting it out there on blast for the world to see is another.
Because when you step out to show the world who you are and who you want to become, there will always be people trying to stop you (and many times that person is yourself.) Being brave comes with being vulnerable and opening yourself up to criticism…and that’s never easy.
I was incredibly nervous to share this video with you. In fact I almost didn’t because as I watched it after it was done, I found everything wrong with it that I could, instead of taking a moment to say, “Hey, a year ago you would have NEVER had the guts to do this and look at you now!”
I lived my whole life according to what others thought of me and I spent every day worrying about being judged…trying to be “perfect.” And there are still moments that those same worries creep up, such as now.
But in these moments, you can decide to question every move, stand still and be beaten down…or embrace the imperfection, look at it as an invitation to greater fulfillment and keep moving towards the person you want to be and life you want to live.
There’s more fulfillment in doing something imperfectly than waiting for perfection and not doing anything at all. (TWEET IT!)
And the best feeling is saying, “I did it anyways!”
I’m excited to see how this new journey evolves, but more than anything I’m excited to continue sharingÂ my passion for helping others also stop settling for “I’m not good enough” and start living because they are!
I’m so excited to finally be able to connect with you this way and share information that I hope will inspire you create the life you were almost meant to be living.
So without anymore babbling, please head on over to check out what I’ll be talking about and don’t forget to subscribe to the channel to make sure you don’t miss out on any of the new videos I post!
