I’m writing this blog post on my flight back home from Bali, feeling fulfilled, grateful and excited. I’ve had quite some breakthroughs and amazing a-ha moments in the last two weeks, and I’d love to share my top 3 with you:
1) Start before you’re ready
This is inspired by the amazing Mel Wells, a health coach and author of "The Goddess Revolution", who helps women get over eating disorders by healing their relationship with food.
How often were you 100% „ready“ to finally do something in your life? So often, we wait until we’re „ready“, aka as the „perfect time“. I can almost guarantee you, the perfect time will never come. The perfect time for anything in your life is NOW. Today. In his very moment, you can take a decision and do things differently.
Your turn now!
I’ve been there myself, waited for the perfect moment to quit my job and finally live life on my terms. It took me over a year from sharing my dream of quitting until I actually did it. Over one freaking year!!
If there’s anything you’ve been wanting to change, do, buy, say, or experience for a while and you’ve been putting it of until „you’re ready“, do it now. Start before you’re ready. Life is so precious. So short. It’s not worth it to waste it suffering or hoping for better times. Take a decision today to change your life for the better.
After postponing FOR MONTHS, I finally launched!
This trip has showed me that I CAN start before I’m ready. I launched a free challenge without having any content together yet (so excited!! Sign up here!). I just knew that by the time the challenge will start, I’d have all it takes up and running.
I also finally announced my group program, which I launched last week (I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS!!! Click here to get more info!), and which I had been putting off FOR MONTHS, because I felt I wasn’t ready to do this! I’m telling you, it feels so good to just do things, without overthinking if it’s right or wrong, if it’s better today or tomorrow.. In the end, what matters is NOW.
2) Ask for support
For a long time, I always thought I could figure everything out by myself. I thought I would be able to setup all the systems for my business, to control every single detail of it, to attract just the right clients and projects, to wakeup super excited about my life and feeling 100% confident with who I was. I thought I knew everything it takes to live that life and have that business. Yes, sometimes, even most of the time, that’s how I feel. Sometimes I am super high on life and could hug the whole wide world.
It's ok to have ups and downs.
But then, there are days, where I feel down, low with my energy, sad, frustrated, because things don't work out the way I wish they would. Sometimes, the strategies I thought were perfect and right, just don’t seem to work!And that’s ok! It’s all a process of learning and healing, and understanding how to uplift yourself as quickly as possible.
So one day, I decided that I didn't want to continue my life struggling with stuff I thought I could do on my own. I asked for help. I hired a coach. A coach who could see things in me that I couldn't even see myself. A coach who motivates and encourages me to stay on track. A coach who has years, if not decades, of experience in what I’m trying to figure out on my own. Hiring a coach is the shortcut to that life you want to live.
My amazing Bali coaches
I went on this retreat to Bali, because the coaches that organized it already have something I want to have for myself in the future. Because they do things that I want to do for myself and in my business. Because they are so aligned with what they do and how they do it, and that’s what I want, too! I look up to them and I take their helping hand to get into my best shape to shine my light onto this world and to the women who need support. You’re not supposed to figure everything out by yourself! It is 100% OK to ask for help! It is even amazing when you ask for help. Others can see the potential in you that you can’t see, because it’s covered with judgment, fears, blocks, past experiences and all kinds of stories you keep making up in your head. A coach are neutral. She just helps you be your best self. Get to where you want to be. Get out of your own way. Working with a coach (and I've had more than one!) has been the best thing I’ve ever done in my entire life!
3) Invest in yourself
The first personal development seminar I ever attended was back in 2011. It was all about learning the laws of the universe and how to use them for your own good. E.g. the law of attraction: „What goes around, comes around“ - whatever energy you send out, will circle back to you. Since then, I spent countless weekends, days, hours attending live seminars, workshops, online courses, webinars, coaching calls etc. and I keep learning new things every single day. I even spend much more money on my personal growth than I spend on travels (And I do travel quite a lot!)! Never have I regretted a single cent that I invested in my own education, in my personal growth, in getting to know myself better, in designing my dream life, and in being my authentic self.
I spent over $5000 in four days. On myself.
This retreat in Bali was just another investment in myself. But this time, it was different. I spent way over 5000$ in the last two weeks, and here’s what I got out of it:
- crystal clear clarity on where my REAL blocks are + how to let go of them
- confidence and trust that I can do and achieve ANYTHING I want
- strategies and step by step guidance about how to share my message even better - by being my authentic true self.
- 8 new bff girlfriends. And I’m not talking about random girls you would meet on the street. All of these women have impacted my life in such a genuine, honest, pure, and loving way, and I know for sure that I will stay friends with them for the rest of my life. Why? Because we are on the same journey. We have big dreams. We are ambitious. We love beautiful things. We enjoy traveling. We love and support each other, and we uplift each other. And so much more… I found myself surrounded by powerhouses who gave me exactly what I needed!
- two weeks of time for myself, with complete strangers, away from anyone who knows or judges me, away from my common environment and that could potentially pull me back into my day to day routine.
Think I’m crazy?
Yes, I agree, lol!! Crazy in a good sense. Had I not invested such a big amount of money,
- I wouldn't have been so dedicated to really do this.
- I wouldn't have met new besties.
- I wouldn’t have had a fun pool party and an intimate dinner with two amazing coaches who inspired me to dream even bigger, who encouraged me to just be me, who showed me that I can SO do this.
- I wouldn't have met all these amazing women who allowed me to just be myself - total strangers, and we spent 2 entire weeks together! I still think this is incredible!
- I wouldn’t have left my cozy comfort zone at all.
None of this can be valued with an amount of money.
*You cannot buy happiness. But by investing in yourself and getting to know yourself better, you can get closer to it.
*You cannot buy motivation. But you can work on yourself to learn techniques and strategies that motivate you every single day.
*And how much is a friend worth who supports you in good and in bad times, who is there to listen to your stories, who comforts you when you have a bad day, who encourages you to keep going, and who allows you to just be you? Someone who sees your raw and pure you and just loves you for who you are? Priceless, that’s what it is…
Why investing in YOURSELF really matters
Spending time and money on things that matter to you are the best investments you can make. Who matters more than you? You might not have thought about this before. Maybe you think you love traveling and that’s where you spend your money. Or shopping, or eating out, or spas. Yes, this is all important as well, and I do all of this, too. But it’s only temporary. It’s not lasting. You might love that food from the restaurant. Or your new bag, or that memory of your trip to the beach. But how do you feel when you come back from your vacation? How do you feel about your new clothes a week later? Most probably, the excitement has already vanished.
The road to happiness lies within you
When you truly know who you are, what you like, what excited you, what you dream of for your future life, when you know where your blocks are and how you can overcome them to break free from all kinds of limitations, fears, and drama, that’s when you start glowing. That’s when you get that inside out sparkle. That’s when you can be and feel truly happy. Just with who you are RIGHT NOW!
In order to get there, there’s some work to be done. Invest in yourself. It’s the greatest gift you can make yourself.
