My favourite mug is big, came from a book store, and has some of the most perfectly inspirational words on it that embody all of the things that really make an impact on how you show up in life and business. Other than that, it’s completely normal. Yet, it speaks to me like no other mug I’ve ever met.
Inspired reading can come from a variety of different sources. This time, it came from my favourite mug. Yes, you read that right. The writing on my favourite mug was made to inspire and so it shall. I hope it inspires you as well.
When life gives you lemons…
All this means is to stay solution-focused.
What it also implies is that there are opportunities for those who stay true to their intuition: showing up as only you can; taking what the world gives you and turning it onto its head; giving it a spin that comes unapologetically from your authentic brilliance. Never let the world tell you who you are or how you should think. Take pride in your difference and own it as only you can.
Practice makes progress.
But it doesn’t have to feel like work.
Habit-forming is a tricky task but that doesn’t mean you have to feel miserable about it. In fact, that will deter the habit from actually forming! Start small and reward yourself often. It doesn’t have to be hard and really shouldn’t feel like work. For content creation, shout it from the rooftops: Write something today, even if it sucks - because at first, it probably will… and that’s okay! Have fun with it and keep things light.
Laughter is the best medicine.
Plus it’s contagious so let’s strive to infect the world!
As an entrepreneur, prioritizing happiness and living fully are rooted in the interconnectivity of life and business. Showing up as yourself and finding joy in the little things makes flowing between your many roles so much easier. It makes for boundaries kept and good times stretched - indefinitely. If you haven’t had a good laugh lately, consider why and how you can change it. Find a reason to laugh today, even if you’re just making faces in the mirror.
Seize The Moment
You never know what tomorrow has to hold.
The value of each moment cannot be overstated. In living your truth, bringing good into the world, and enjoying the little miracles of life, you can generate the passion and resources necessary to really thrive now and in the future. Showing up is so much simpler when you can appreciate the value of each moment and harness it to your advantage.
Find Your Own Way
You have an Ace up your sleeve.
Hint: it’s being your authentic self.
Fly your freak flag! No, really. It may seem like no one out there will ‘get it’ but the beauty of today’s world is that we are so globally connected that it is just about guaranteed that not just one person, but many, will totally hop on board with your way of thinking. Bravely showing up as your authentic self gives others permission to dust off their own, similar flags, and fly them with pride. Lead the way and show ‘em how it’s done.
Believe You Can
Perseverance is power.
Despite all else, roll those shoulders back, raise your chin, and keep going.
Your confidence shines through in all that you do. Having a growth mindset aimed at achievable goals makes a world of difference in the successes you achieve in life and business. Believing you can makes overcoming the obstacles that will inevitably get in your way feel more like scaling anthills rather than mountains. You’ve got this.
Make It Happen
It’s all in the choices you make.
No one else is going to do it for you.
Make a plan, be committed to its execution, and the results will come. What this looks like is up to you - you’re the boss; of your business, your life, and your being. Taking ownership of what you have control over makes navigating the rest a piece of cake.
