I've been sitting around all day it feels like. I've been trying so hard to shake the lazy urge of avoiding my work and just to finish this blog post. In reality it feels like writing an essay because I've been telling myself I'm not that good at writing papers for a long time. But here we are now typing...I finally got up and got the courage to fight this feeling of self-doubt face to face and do what I wanted to do. It's been a while since I actually posted on my blog because of this fear of my pieces not being good enough. This is actually my first real blog post and I want to be as transparent as possible. The grass may look greener on the other side...but it's not. I have issues which is completely normal. We all do. With that being said entreprenurship is not easy. Don''t get me wrong it's a blessing but it's not for the weak. It's an amazing feeling to watch something you dream about everyday evolve. I've been so proud of my hard work but also been defeated by self-doubt. I just want to remind anyone that's been feeling the same way to hold onto your faith,stay focused and f*ck fear.
Reward yourself. Whatever you feel like you deserve give it to yourself by any means necessary. You're working hard Don't cheat yourself treat yourself.
Create a daily goal. You can plan for the next day or the next 10 days it's all up to you and how much time you're willing to give. I recommend planning your goals for the next 5-10 days so you're ahead of the game. You can also write down some short term and long term goals.
Meditate. The world never sleeps but that doesn't mean you shouldn't! I believe in taking a moment to yourself throughout the day. Take a breath because sometimes the world stresses you out so much you forget to breathe. Give yourself a few moments out the day to feel grounded again. I also like to ask myself how I'm feeling throughout the day sometimes you're so worried about everything else you forget about yourself.
Pray. Having faith has helped me so much! I asked my sister if she had any tips this was her suggestion. Even if you don't believe in anything or anyone start by believing in yourself. Believe in yourself. You are in control, this is your story. Everyday you have choices that determine your future.4
Self-care and hygiene. You feel 100x better when you have a ritual like for me doing my makeup. I love makeup! When I have my hair and makeup done I am a totally different girl. By focusing on myself and the more I discover what I like and don't like life becomes way more fun. I start my day by taking a shower, AM skin routine, and doing my hair and getting dress. This simple ritual makes me feel alive again. I start to get in the groove of things and start to feel like myself again, especially if I wake up unmotivated.
Sleep & Eat. Your body needs 6-8 hours of sleep to feel normal so make sure you're getting some rest. Your eating habits should be just as good as your sleep. Eat some fruit and drink water.
Self-discipline. You can dream but you can't neglect the execution. By staying focus on your goals and aspirations you will progress. Everything may not go as planned you may even slip a few times but never give up. No matter what. I know times get rough but remember there's nothing you can't do. You're only competition Is you.
I hope this list helped you. I really do, even if you're not an entrepreneur I recommend trying a few of these.I like to practice these whenever I feel I'm having "one of those days" where I'm not motivated. I lost that fire in me that always keeps me going and I'm holding on a thin thread. I know I don't want to give up but I hit some kind of block. It gets frustrating but that's when you make the choice of choosing the life you want. And Beyonce please don't copyright me I just needed a title real fast lol.
