Inspiration

Who out there struggles with self-doubt? Now add the burden of attempting to run your own business to a
psyche already riddled with that self-doubt and you could very easily have a recipe for disaster.

While there is no easy solution for that, one of the awesome things I learned during the
Bride Attraction Bootcamp that I attended via phone in December was the need to
surround myself with positive reinforcement.

So, at the risk of seeming egotistical, I created my "I" poster to keep above my desk to

1. Remind me of the awesomeness in my life, and
2. Give myself a boost at how awesome I really am/can be.

Now when I am feeling lackluster and uninspired I look directly above my computer monitor and take a few moments to read this:


Another amazing quote that Natalie Bradley of Bride Attraction recommended that we keep in mind is this:

Our Deepest Fear

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant,
gorgeous, handsome, talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.

Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.
It is not just in some; it is in everyone.

And, as we let our own light shine, we consciously give
other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.
by Marianne Williamson


Yep, this is going above my desk as well.

Sometimes we all need reminders like this to help us get through those times when all we want to do is wallow in self-pity and mourn about how much we suck. Instead take that time and remember why you DON'T suck. Kinda like counting your blessings. Plaster it on your wall, or your desktop of your computer, wherever you need to to give yourself a little wake up call every once in a while.

Hope you all have a great day!
