LEARNING TO BELIEVE IN MYSELF. BIZ VLOG 138-140.

Day 138 (00:06) – This week is all about working on my first product for my online photography business! I know I’m going to spend a ton of time in front of my computer but it’s all coming from an inspired place because I know that I can produce the best work when I feel happy! So even though I worked long hours today, I gave myself time to play with Cilantro, have long conversations with the hubby and go for a walk.

I’m structuring my course into several modules and today I finished the first module! I think I’ve written almost twenty pages in less than two days! There’s definitely going to be a lot of editing in the future but I’m so proud of the progress I’ve made today… and I firmly believe a huge part of it is because it’s all coming from a relaxed, happy and inspired place!

Day 139 (01:12) – The writing continued today, non-stop! I’m so proud of what I’m working on! I can’t wait to get this out to the people that will need it. I’m starting to get really excited about the possibilities… I know one day I’ll look back at this and say “wow all of this started from THAT. Something so simple, not fully figured out, but I started and look how much we’ve learned and how much progress we’ve made.”

Day 140 (01:50) – I listened to a podcast by James Wedmore this morning and he talked about how goals are really only about three things; 1. You either reach the goal and you’re happy. 2. You learn something from not meeting the goal and you’re happy. 3. Either way, you learn a lot about yourself and the person you’re BECOMING in the process. This fascinated me and it’s something I’ve been thinking about a lot.

I’ve been really hard on myself throughout this process of starting a business but lately I’ve tried to focus on what happens when I believe in myself… I allow myself to thrive, create and think outside the box without judging everything I do. And I’m much happier, productive and proud of what I’m accomplishing! I used to say I didn’t like “the process” but now that I’m focusing on “who I’m becoming in the process” I seem to be appreciating the whole experience so much more.

Thank you for joining me on this journey, you are appreciated more than you know,

Xoxo,
