Maybe it is just that easy
I am a huge advocate for recognizing where my own strengths are and enlisting help for where I lack knowledge or experience. However, I found recently that I was taking the easy way out more often than not. Instead of taking time to sit down and figure it out for myself I was referring out to other people. I have a lot of people who can help me but I found myself waiting around for help instead of taking action myself. This only led to me feeling less useful than I would like to be and a delay because not everyone is able to help instantly due to their other commitments.
Last weekend I decided to take matters into my own hands. I had the time to dedicate to learning and expanding my knowledge and I wanted to know how to do it for myself rather than pay out to someone else. I spent about 10-12 hours this past week and weekend and I have come out on the other end realizing that I am more capable than I give myself credit for!
So what did I accomplish this week?
- created an entire new website which launched yesterday!
- properly condensed my newsletter lists and sent out a survey
- added more features to my Facebook page
- created a MINDBODY page which means you can register for all of my classes online now! Click here to check it out.
I am feeling extremely proud because it was my own time and effort well spent to accomplish a lot from my priority list this week. As someone trying to run a successful business and still in the starting stages it means that you get to wear lots of hats - administrator being a huge one. As I continue to expand my knowledge in a physical sense to give my clients the best possible workout, I also am continuing to expand my knowledge administratively. These are things I never knew before but am excited to get to know more about.
I came across someone’s Instagram story the other day talking about how our fears and reservations can hold us back. They ended their image with a statement - “maybe it is just that easy”. I learned that it really can be! Dedicate time and energy to learn something new and who knows what might happen?! You might just produce a website!
What has been holding you back because of fear of failure or lack of knowledge? I challenge everyone this week to forget about being stuck in a box and remember that your only limit is you. When we can get past what we know and move into the unknown of learning something new, amazing things happen.
Yours in self-discovery,
