However this finds you right now -
Or getting cozy with some warm cocoa…
I’m motivated to drop into your inbox this weekend with another Mistake I see creatives make >>> that I really want you to AVOID in 2024!
If you missed last week’s content - the first of this series– check it out here.
I cover Shiny Object Syndrome - how to determine if you fall susceptible to it and what to do instead so that you’re less distracted + get more mileage out of the limited time and energy you have to give to your career.
This week, I’m highlighting Another Mistake I saw a TON of creatives make this year:
Subscribing to Other’s Limiting Beliefs
I can’t count the amount of times I worked with a client this year who had had a family member, colleague or even COACH tell them their goal or long term vision was not possible OR that they should lower their expectations.
Now, as a coach, I am both a motivator and practical strategist, but it is NOT my job to limit you, it’s my job to help you explore your highest potential and actually achieve it.
You are receiving the results you’re currently receiving because of the the thoughts you are having and the situation that you’re in.
Your situation includes your environment, including the people and perspectives you surround yourself with…
The actions you taking…
The thoughts you’re having.
And of course there are many other reasons you may be where you’re at right now – including living in an inequitable world… I get it… some of these big things we cannot completely control or change singlehandedly… So what I’m talking about today is what’s within your control…
The first step to moving towards your dream life and career, is making sure you’ve set up a thriving environment for yourself! ☀️
🌟 An Environment where you have folks to turn to who actually believe in you… who hear your dreams and goals and encourage you forward… who are there for you when you’ve had a bad day... and who remind you that you are enough, you will be okay.
So when you think about the long-term vision + goals or habits you're looking to develop in 2024, I want you to ask yourself:
Do I believe this is possible?
Am I receiving messaging that this isn't possible?
What are naysayers saying?
How does it help them if I limit myself?
How can I add more hopeful content and/or people into my life?
And if you're not sure where to start, please know that I care about your dreams. And if you want to work together in 2024, I'd be honored to be your coach - to help you stay encouraged and in practical action.
The world always benefits when creatives believe in themselves, shine brightly, have more resources and the healthy environment to thrive.
So, today I want to remind you that:
You are worthy.
You are worthy of the goals you’ve set out for yourself.
And if you don’t 100% believe they’re possible, take a look at your environment and make one change today to help you believe in yourself more and stay motivated so that you continue to take action expressing yourself as an artist today and every day.
Please drop a note in the comments and let me know what you think - I’m curious to learn how this sits with you.
If you'd like a resource to help identify a limiting belief and learn how to change this belief (or beliefs), I'd love to point you to Days 2 + 3 of my Dream Big, Plan Smart training which you can access for free for a limited time here.
