You know, when you wake up, full of energy and ready to conquer the world and you have this incredible go getting attitude?

Yeah, that’s not how it goes for most people.

At least not all the time.

Feeling like you are ready to move mountains doesn’t always happen.

I always say, “I don’t wait for inspiration. I start working and it appears in the process.”

Well, sometimes, it appears. Sometimes it doesn’t.

We, for some reason, are so wrapped up with the idea that we have to create something so original, so unusual and so unique, that we often find ourselves stuck in the perfectionist trap.

We battle with the impostor syndrome, “Who am I to create anything beautiful/meaningful/significant?”

Well, if other people are capable of creating something magnificent, you can as well.

But we keep comparing our worsts with other people’s bests, liquidating our own power.

We don’t feel enough with the benchmark so high up.

All of this nonsense is really a crappy excuse that keeps us stuck.

Of course, if you don’t believe in yourself, you definitely need to work on your self-image and self-confidence. It is not going to sort itself out on its own. Click here to find out more

However, if we just show up regularly and continently by taking an imperfect action that we feel is important, we are much better off than never taking an imperfect action.

We love the idea of a dream. We don’t like the idea of working on our dream.

Because, it implies “work”, and it is not sexy.

It implies doing work that none cares about. Initially.

It implies motivating yourself to get out and kick butt when it feels like staying in bed under a cozy blanket.

It implies working with no results. Initially.

It is not just not glamorous. It could be devastating.

BUT. Thats the price required to pay for your dream and aspiration.

And I promise you, it does pay off.

The more you give in, the more you will be able to get.

You could be sitting there, getting ready, preparing a perfect action plan, reading another book, finishing another course, getting another certification badge….

Don’t get me wrong. All of these things are crucial for your personal development.

But there is nothing worse and more frustrating frankly than unapplied knowledge and skills.

If there is something in your life you are not happy about, YOU are the only person who can change it.

What are you doing about it?

Are you looking for excuses and justification why it hasn’t worked for you?

Nobody owes anything to you.

Anything that you have or don’t have in your life is your responsibility, whether you realise it or not.

Do something about it!

But please, don’t expect an overnight change.

There is not such thing as get rich quick.

Anybody who promises you that is lying.

But there is a promise for transformation if you have the right head on.

If you agree to show up to the best of your ability ( not the BEST according to others)

If you are willing to stick to the process.

If you can bounce off temporary setbacks.

If you agree to give up something of a lesser value to obtain something of a greater value.

If you constantly work on your mindset.

The only and the biggest challenge that is in the way to your dream is always YOU or the wrong assumption about what you believe is possible for you.
