Hey Y’all Hey! Kijan ou Ye! How are you doing?
Stop Stopping Yourself
Have you ever let FEAR get the best of you?
False Evidence Appearing Real
Over the past few months I have been wanting to start up a new YouTube channel but I kept making excuses after excuses. I started overthinking it and kept talking myself out of it. I would use the excuse of not having time because I’m a mom. Then I would tell myself you only have time to work on your blog, you can’t add another project on top of that. I was coming up with some of the most ridiculous excuses ever.
Then one day, while my son was playing with his aunt, I decided to pull out my tripod and got to recording my first video for the new channel. After recording it, I was so proud of myself for taking that step to START.
Although I was scared of starting over in the YouTube world, I had to tell myself if this is something you want to do then you have to START. Starting is the first step! You need to learn to work at what you want and master it. Don’t give up until you reach your goals. STOP Stopping Yourself!
You need to remind yourself that you are powerful, one of a kind, amazing human being, blessed and made with purpose.
As a creative, I find that I’m the problem. My self doubt and lack of confidence in myself and my work allows me to stop myself from moving forward. It’s a constant battle to not compare my work with someone else’s. But there has to be something to compare with. If I never hit publish then what am I comparing. It does not matter that your work will be compared to someone else’s. The only thing that matters is to not use that as an excuse. It is perfectly normal to be scared but do not be the one to get in your own way.
I’m here to tell myself and you if you are struggling as well, STOP stopping yourself and go for it. Learn to get out of your own way. You never know where it may take you. Hop on the journey and enjoy the ride, even the hurdles that will come.
Find your way! Make your mistakes but don’t ever give up!
