The other week one of my lovely blogging friends, Nicole from A Spectacular Life published a blog post that really resonated with me. It was about being and living your authentic self when it comes to having your own business.
Finding your purpose and serving in the best way that feels right for you, even if it goes against the grain.
Sometimes I wonder if I'm being true to myself or if I'm letting other people's opinions crowd out who I truly am.
Over the past couple of weeks I have been struggling with this and my Negative Nancy voice has been turned up and telling me that I'm not good enough, maybe I should just find a 'proper' job, am I going to get any clients when I return to work in 4 weeks time and so on.
She has really been getting me down!
Needless to say, Nic's blog post came at a good time for me, as things do when the universe is sending you a message. I felt so understood and held when I watched her video blog.
Someone else understood me!
When you have your own business sometimes things don't go as planned. I am always questioning myself and wondering if I'm doing the right thing. Hello lack of self-confidence.
I sometimes get so absorbed in what other people are doing that I tend to start to follow their path or decide 'I'm doing it wrong', whatever that means.
For instance, I read all the time that I need to be specific in my services and what I offer otherwise I'm not going to be successful. But at the same time, I love so many things and I want to offer them to you.
When I first started offering angel card readings I thought that I shouldn't do it because I'm a coach and personal trainer, what does angel card readings have to do with that?! But something within me was telling me to offer them, so I listened and I'm so glad I did because they have been so helpful and supportive for so many women. The feedback has been beautiful.
I have also just joined doTERRA, so essential oils are now going to be apart of my business. I can't wait to show you the beautiful oils and the amazing ways you can bring them into your life. Watch this space!
I now realise that it is absolutely okay for me to be me. I can offer whatever it is that makes me excited because at the end of the day they all come back to my WHY.
WHY do I do what I do?
I do it because I want to help women all over the world live their happiest, healthiest and most radiant self.
So I ask you this, are you being your authentic self?
Know that being you is the best version of yourself. It is the self that is going to take you places and feel happy and abundant.
