Let’s talk about fear for a little bit.
We all have it from time to time. We all have been debilitated as a result of it, at one time or another. Some of us may struggle with it daily.
It’s part and parcel of what makes us human.
Never forget that — we have and experience fear because we are human!
I have written about fear before and have explained its purpose and meaning. If you missed this blog on how Jimmy Chin is my “fear guru”, it’s worth a read.
Today though, I will give you four steps towards…
Oh, I have self-belief in buckets, as I am sure that you do too!
However, consider those times when your resolve has been shaken. Perhaps your confidence has wavered a little as you are starting on a new venture, or you are setting off into the “unknown.”
Self-worth is described as one’s own value of being a human being. That’s pretty powerful when you think about it.
There was a time when I questioned my purpose. My direction had been set off-kilter, and I realised that my self-belief was very different to having a sense of self-worth.
These are the…
It’s about your own inner light. On some days, it might shine brightly, but because we are all human, it can be dimmed from time to time.
I’ve just come out of the most amazing week in my business! There have been so many breakthroughs, and for me, it is always about my own power and fighting to hold onto it on some days.
The confidence that wavers; that self-doubt talk that pops up; the worry that upsets my peace.
You see, it all boils down to this one important thing:
None of those things are labels that I choose…
I am going to head straight into those four reasons. Here goes!
I am fortunate enough to be in a business network group with awesome online entrepreneurs who are encouraged to explore and reinforce their “why”.
The reason that they are in business; the reason they get up in the morning; and the reason that pushes them forward despite all odds.
In the most profound way too. Let me tell you why, but first, some basic details about what this is.
Warning! No scientific evidence!
At least none that I could find.
This claim of mine, that it can change lives, is based only on stories that I have heard and my own experiences with this process.
So, I don’t blame you for shaking your head and scrolling to a blog post that will resonate better with you.
However, if you do stick around, I think that you will see the very basic principle around this process and you could find…
Taking strength from your purpose and your goals
“Hello,” the doctor said, referring to me playfully as the “lady with the interesting pelvis. I got up from the chair and greeted him back. “Hi Doc, how is the new year treating you?”
In 2019, I achieved one of my biggest goals. On two prosthetic hips, I walked the Camino de Santiago, and after a few fits and starts, I walked into Santiago de Compostela's ancient city. Maybe “walked” is not quite correct. I have a penguin-like gait, so maybe wobble is more accurate.
Today, the 17th February 2021, I…
I am also an introvert, but that also doesn’t give me any excuses to be anti-social and scared of people. My introversion is just the way I recharge my batteries, after all.
How often do we make excuses for something, and all the while we know the truth about our ourselves? I am going to be honest, and say that I have done it pretty often.
Now that I am aware of my feelings, my feelings of fear, I can tackle things with far more gusto and a whole lot more confidence. …
The Cruz de Ferro is in the spotlight these days, and not for the reasons you might think. The Authorities in the municipalities in which this unassuming cross stands, want to remodel and “upgrade” the area around it.
The pilgrims who know and love the Camino de Santiago have banded together, and there is a public outcry to leave this global icon and the surrounds, as is.
We wait with bated breathe on this issue.
The Cruz de Ferro or Iron Cross is humble in its stature. It is a simple wooden post around five meters in height, with an…
In fact, I told her to “f” off. It was high time.
Who is Fredericka you might be asking? She happens to be that little voice; that alter-ego who really has not served my greater purpose at all.
She has been that voice of self-doubt; that voice passing down her feelings of inadequacy and even worse that voice where I thought I was an intellectual fraud.
She is the voice of Impostor Syndrome.
Wikipedia describes Impostor Syndrome as follows:
It is not easy to watch everyone else crushing their goals, and you feel like an absolute failure. I have often wondered why I struggle into things, where I would much rather be feeling supercharged and courageous for my efforts.
When I really get into my own thought process, I often find that I am only harsh on myself. The truth is that I have enjoyed a great deal of success, and the reality is that I will continue doing so. …
