As Creative Entrepreneurs, we sometimes come up against a wall….

How do we deal with that and have “Faith & Persistence” to carry on?

If you are like me, you have ancestors who had the “Faith & Persistence” in WenzelFamilymoving from their homeland, coming to North America with little belongings and build new lives here.

When I look through some of the old photos we have of our ancestors, how they endeared the hardships can be totally inspiring. Living in a sod house during -40C temperatures or in what they called the “Dirty Thirties” where nothing would grow because of the drought. Man, if that doesn’t inspire you – nothing will!

Sometimes, its overwhelming when you thought you had everything going smoothly and WHAM, something derails you.  It happens to many and you can not be disappointed in yourself.

BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!

When those times show up, its the perfect time to journal (or start journaling if you don’t already journal) and see what shows up in that journaling. Its also a good time to spend more time on Creative Dates with yourself and learning more about what is deep inside, that has you thinking you are unable to continue.

DOUBT 

Maybe someone has planted some doubt, or you have been beating yourself up yourself. STOP IT!

We each have a story to tell in this world, and we NEED your story to be out there!

You have survived experiences or been creating for many years, that is worthwhile to others starting out. 

BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!

Start building up the “Faith & Persistence” you need to push through, its worth it!

So many come up to that wall and step back, never to be seen or heard of again. That is so sad, as I said before, we need everyone to tell their story – that’s why we are here.

Some steps to start you on the path to the other side:

  • Write down your dreams/goals for yourself for the next 5 years.
  • Write what excites you about each of those. 
  • How would it FEEL to have those dreams/goals accomplished.
  • Which is the dream/goal you would like to accomplish this year.
  • Start a worksheet with the steps (make them do-able) to start today.
  • See the end and work back to present, each step needs to be do-able.

If you would like more tips, techniques, systems and weekly encouragement, I can be of service – more details HERE.

Have the FAITH & PERSISTENCE to pursue YOUR DREAMS – YOU are worth it!

Do YOU ever just sit down and think about who YOU really are? Do YOU Believe in YoURSELF?

This is an Excerpt from the Big Dreams Journaling program.

Believing in Yourself

To be successful at anything, it requires believing in yourself.

When YOU believe in yourself, you will be unafraid to push yourself to get to the next level. Unafraid of failure. And, if there is failure, think of it as just a setback – a detour in the path.  It may mean taking a little longer to achieve your dream/goal.  Its all part of learning about yourself and pushing through.

If you are unwilling to take a detour because you are afraid – you will always stay where you are.

Believing in yourself is all about listening to all your fears and obstacles you put in front of you. Once, you truly know all those, we can work on changing our mind.

YOU are here for a reason.  

BelieveInYourselfOnly YOU knows for sure what it is that makes you feel truly happy!

One of the ways to believe in yourself, is being grateful for what you already have.  

If doing a daily Gratitude Journal is not already in your daily practise, this might be a good time to start one.  You’ll find yourself believing more and more thatYOU ARE capable of achieving your goals, when you SEE what you’ve already accomplished.

Another practise you could implement, is writing a fan letter to yourself. One a month or once a quarter, write all about what you’ve accomplished – even mail it to yourself if you want to.

Avoid being drawn into negative conversations or drama, as doubt will start to sneak back in again and you will have to begin work on changing your mindset again.

Believe that anything is possible!

You are on the right path towards achieving your goals.

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams…Eleanor Roosevelt

 When you set goals and take action on them, you are “Believing in Yourself” – believing that YES, you can achieve your dreams/goals.

Have confidence in your abilities and start tackling that “do-able” steps list and when you complete one of those tasks –CELEBRATE!

There may be days, when you don’t feel much like working towards your goals. Don’t let your lack of motivation undermine the Belief in YOURSELF.  When you are able to motivate yourself to keep going, even when you don’t feel like it, you create a momentum that in turn fuels even more belief in yourself and that motivates you to push on.  Its a circle – the more belief, the more momentum.

Take care of yourself.  Treat yourself with respect and love.  

When the going gets tough, you can write out some Positive Affirmations to say to YOURSELF when they are need.

Here is one for you:

When I believe in myself, I attract others who believe in me also.

This week, I challenge you to BELIEVE IN YOURSELF and try one do-able step towards YOUR DREAM/GOAL!!!
