Today I want to share an important message with you guys! I have been getting many admiring comments throughout the years which I think are very flattering, but also bother me in some way, so I would like to get it out of my system. I hear it all the time… people are so impressed with me apparently! I am travelling the world all on my own, I am chasing my dreams wherever they take me, I am slowly but surely building up my career, I am taking many risks and diving into the deep on a weekly basis… and actually, I am doing pretty well for myself! Sure, all of these things are amazing and I couldn’t be happier about my life right now, but then again… literally ANYONE could chase their dreams with the right amount of dedication and determination!
You thought all of my progress comes from being flawless and fearless? I doubt myself daily, wondering if I will be good enough and whether people will like my work. Honestly, most of the time I don’t even know what I’m doing! To prove it, I put together a fun bloopers video which shows the result of my first experiments with vlogging… far from #Flawless I tell you!
Train your Mind
Personally I am quite strict for myself when I am insecure, but perhaps my mind-training will give you guys some new ways to think about your own hauntings. Whenever I am feeling down and there is nothing left of my confidence, I give myself two options: OR I’m going to sit in a corner and cry about it, OR I get over myself and do this f*cking sh*t! Because let’s face it: will you ever make progress if you act insecure? OF COURSE NOT.
So… lift your pretty ass and turn on your Warrior Mode: try to switch off your emotions and think rationally. What do I need to do to reach my goals? Which steps do I need to take? Sometimes all you need is to keep going and find your dedication & determination again… dreams don’t come true overnight and that’s okay, it’s a process!
Obviously everyone messes up every now and then. The point is to learn from your bloopers in order to grow higher than ever! Instead of being disappointed or embarrassed, try to find out why things went wrong and how you can improve yourself for the next time. Like this you will be able to look positively to all of your experiences: the Good AND the Bad. What was that saying again? Sometimes you Win, sometimes you Learn. With a positive approach to your experiences you will gain more confidence over time, tested and approved!
