Believe me, I don’t mean to curse at you. I’ve actually preferred to say “Just do it” but this statement is taken. I’ve been yelling this statement at myself for the past month and it’s been working for me. (In my mind, not randomly out loud. I’m not a crazy lady, trust me!haha!) Soooo…I thought I’d share. 😉
I know it’s tiring, I know you need your rest, I know you’d rather be laying out on a beach somewhere, I know I know I know. That time will come sooner or later. The bottom line is, get your work done! Get it done and do it well. Don’t just give me the bear minimum, give it all you got!
The thing that used to hold me back: intimidation. No one else inflicted that on me but me. I felt like I didn’t know enough, I didn’t have enough experience, I was too “green.” I shouldn’t be intimidated, I should hold my head up with pride about what I’ve accomplished. And though I may not be the most knowledgeable book in the bookcase, I’ve learned a thing or two about business and my industry.
So how did I get past my intimidation? To be honest, it’s a fighting battle every single day. But to help me get through it I remind myself many things.
1. Don’t worry about what everyone else is doing. What’s important is what you are doing.
2. Continue to better your business and personal life instead of wishing for others’ successes.
3. Look at blogs and magazines for inspiration, not for reasons to doubt yourself.
4. There is always something new to learn, it’s never over.
5. Do the damn thang!
