Follow your heart’s rythm

A lot of people dread Mondays like it’s some sort of monster. Even though I can’t really blame you because some of you unfortunately have to face your horrible bosses, jealous colleagues and basically just a whole lot of office politics or perhaps some of you are just mainly doing something you are not really passionate about but because you need to put bread on the table you are somehow left with no choice but to accept your reality.

I need you to think about this, can you imagine how different your life would be if you were actually working in a field or environment that you love? Well I’d like to think that your life would be 10 times better than it is now and you would most probably be the happiest person alive.

Now Speaking of happiness, do you know that most people are rude, unkind, jealous, greedy because they are bitter inside. People are bitter because they are not living the life they are supposed to be living and they envy those who are. The problem comes when an opportunity for “change” presents it’self but then you decide to ignore it because you are looking at your current situation and not focusing on the brighter side of things.

Another thing is that most people are just not risk takers I mean I’d like to think that all of us have that enigmatic moment where the little voice inside of us tells us “it is now time to let go of what’s hindering us to chase our dreams, it is time to take a risk and follow our hearts rhythm and ultimately reach our destiny”. It is during this time, this moment where we have to listen and take action if it means leaving your current job and following your hearts rhythm then why not do it. Why do we have so much fear?.

I urge you darling to step up and step out and follow your hearts rhythm because you will never fulfill your earthly purpose from your comfort zone. Explore your skills and talents until you finally feel that you have arrived at your destination and your heart is fulfilled.

Much love & blessings

HOW TO OVERCOME FEAR

​One of our biggest enemies we always encounter on the journey to success is FEAR. This is something we cannot run away from, but we can overcome it.I have come to realise that the thing with fear is that it begins in your mind, just like anything else. When we feed it, we actually channel our minds to be fearful of things that might not even occur because we are sort of dillusional when we are overpowered by this stigma.

FACE THAT GOLIATH

Fear makes us to be doubtful, and as inevitable as it is? we need to fight it by gaining courage to pursue our goals with the fear. As a awesome woman with goals, you will always encouter fear wether you like it or not. But what are we so afraid of? Some might say, fear of the unknown, fear of success, the fear of being good enough and the fear of exposing your talents. Well ofcourse there are factors that encourage us to be fearful and those are things such as; self-doubt, seeking validation, lack of commitment, low self-esteem and unreadiness.

I have outlined a few basics steps which I believe will help you overcome fear.


HOW TO OVERCOME FEAR


#1BELIEVE IN YOURSELF
S
elf-belief is tge catalyst of success and freedom. Like they always say, if yiu don’t believe in yourself who will?. You need to convince yourself before you can convince anyone. Be free from self-doubt. Be liberal in your thinking.


#2 TAKE YOUR DREAMS SERIOUSLY

Whatever you do, never put yourself in a position where people doubt what you are doing simply because you downtalk yourself and you only talk about your dreams and goals jokingly.Now if you want to overcome fear, you must yake yourself seriously and that way you won’t be intimidated by anyone.


#3 BE CONFIDENT

I cannot stress enough on the importance of being confident. Confidence includes being positive and speaking about your dreams and goals with a bright smile. Be confident in your own skin, be proud of how far you have come. Nothing will tear down a woman with confidence, Not even fear.

#4 KNOW WHAT YOU ARE ALL ABOUT
Knowing what you are all about will definately lead you to being proud of your brand and wgat you stand for. When you know what you stand for, you will not be afraid of rejection because yiu know that the universe will ultimately place you at your perfect position, right where you belong.


#5BE SURE OF YOUR STORY

When you are sure of your story, there won’t be any need for you to be afraid of pursuing your goals. Be sure that woman who is sure that she will be successful. Be sure that you are sure that you are sure. Yes….be that sure.

Many thanks, Stay awesome.

5 AWESOME WAYS TO ‘JUST BEGIN’

I know that there are times in your life where you feel like you have reached the climax in your thinking and planning and all you want to do is to start travelling on that journey which really excites you and scares you at the same time. That’s propbably the right time to follow your heart and JUST BEGIN, because you have thought about it a couple of times and have imagined yourself already as that person you want to become and all of those things you have jotted down in your journal are calling for you and saying that ‘we are ready to be tested’.

Although I do not fully believe in testing the waters but rather going all in with full force, with all that you have and all that you are,but sometimes it can be good to take things slowly so that you do not go over-awe and end up overwhelmed and torn apart  by something that was meant to bring you joy.

The good thing about having that goal or dream is that it just excites you and makes you feel like you can take on the whole world by yourself. It is advisable to start acting and strike while the iron is still hot so that you may accomplish most of the things that you have been planning for some time.

I have compiled a list of 5 ways you can follow in order to Just begin travelling on that journey of yours.


5 AWESOME TIPS TO ‘JUST BEGIN

#1JUST DO IT

Well you have been planning, you have been thinking and it is now time for you to act. Remember when you wrote down your goals  in your journal ?well start by doing the first thing on the list and when you have accomplished it you will automatically be ready to follow through the whole list.

#2 DO NOT CHANGE YOUR PLANS

One mistake that most of us do is chanhing our plans and neglecting our initial goals. This might happen because of fear or even laziness. Do not be that person who is idle, stay focussed on what you have planned to do. Finish what you have started.

#3 TAKE FAILURE AS A LEARNING CURVE

You are going to get dissapointed because not everything will happen or turn out the way you had imagined. When that happens, do not dispair, rather take it as a learning curve and try do approach it from a different angle.


#4 BE CONSISTENT & COMMITTED

These two points correlate with each other because you need to understand that  consistancy is essential and nothing can be achieved without it. The same things goes with commitment because if you are not commited to your goals then you wont be able to achieve them. Know that most people fail, not because of lack of desire but because of lack of commitment.

#5 HAVE COURAGE

There is no way you can do anything without the first step being courage. Be courageous  and  follow through all those things you wrote down in your journal. If it means approaching people and big companies and setting up meetings with the big guys, then do it. It takes a great deal of courage to go against the odds and be who you want to be without the fear of failure and judgement.

GOAL SETTING 101

|HOW TO SET GOALS|

​A Goal is an observable and measurable end result having one or more objectives to be achieved within a more or less fixed timeframe.
Most women have things that they desire to have or to do but they just don’t have the correct procedure to guide them in following through that specific thing. This procedure can be summerised as Goal setting which ultimately leads us to reaching “that thing”. But in order for us to reach there, we first need to understand the term Goal/Goals and  then do some introspection and retrospection in order to find out what we really want because goals are just basically things that we want to achieve. We obviously want to achieve some pretty awesome things and our desires might be bigger than we thought but that does not mean they are unattainable.

Now, this ‘Goal setting 101’ is meant for that independant woman who is driven and wants to mesh up her life and isn’t afraid to go after her goals. This might come up as some sort of a cliché but the  motive behind having a goal and pursuing it is usually because  we ultimately want to be successful.
‘ Successful people maintain a positive focus in life regardless of their current circumstances and they are always trying to figure out what their next step is, instead of focusing on whatever it is that’s happening around them’. Every individual has their own definition of success and depending on your own definition, also bear in mind that you cannot be successful if you don’t really know what you want.

Before we even think of anything else can we just set some goals and have priorities in life. Let us now go through these awesome tips which will help us know what we want and how to organise all of that in a nut shell.

GOAL SETTING  101

#1 KNOW WHAT YOU WANT

There is nothing as disturbing as a person who doesn’t know what they want and have no direction in life. You must be sure that you really want to achieve “that thing” and it is your hearts desire.

#2 HAVE A JOURNAL

One of the most powerful tool that is accessible to all of us, is the pen. It is of utmost importance to jott down what’s in our thoughts so that we can go back there for reference and remind ourselves of the things we want to achieve.

#3 DO YOUR RESEARCH

You cannot achieve something that you don’t even know anything about. Do not rob yourself of information and knowledge because you think you know it all. Bits and bits of research daily, will ultimately lead you to being well informed about things therefore browse though the web, read books, ask around because there are people who know morethan you do.

#4  SET DEADLINES

This might be a little bit tricky because some goals cannot be achieved in a short term but also remember that you cannot just be idle and do things without a proper plan because you might just be setting yourself up for failure.

#5 TAKE ACTION

Nothing will ever happen in your life  without you getting up and doing it physically. You need to go out there and make things happen and get what you want. It is your journey and yours alone, no one will walk it for you.

#6 BE PATIENT

This too might sound like a cliché but nothing happens over night that’s just   the plain truth that cannot be twisted. It might take you 10 years to achieve your goal and that’s why it is crucial to take things one step at a time and you will eventually get there. Be persistant and calm because slow progress is better than no progress at all.

#7 BE CREATIVE & THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX

There is no one way to do things. Explore other things while you are on the journey because things actually unfold when you go an extra-mile. You will be amazed at  the ideas that will come to you as you explore but remember to make sure that those ideas correlate with one another and they do not divert from your actual goal.

#8  NEVER GIVE UP

It is going to be hard, that’s not even a joke. It is going to get hard that you will want to give up but don’t do it it’s just a trap, it’s your mind playing games with you. It is just a test of life. Always encourage yourself and get some motivation from other people.
