I made myself a writing plan and my goodness I am sticking to it!
I have umm-ed and aahed over the last 12 months about writing and singing and if I can do it and this, that and the other. I came to the conclusion that yes of course I can, why not? Who is there to stop me? Why have I let the thoughts and comments of people who, quite frankly, have nothing to do with life, decide for me? I have even let the opinion of a person whom I have never even met to have a weigh in on my life decision. Well no more. I am grabbing my life by its horns and riding the waves…
I am writing every day, I am putting myself forward for auditions, I have entered a writing competition and I’m singing on the days I should be singing. I have set myself goals and I am sticking to them. This focused mind of mine hasn’t just been a bolt out of the blue though. It has been a gradual process that began last July. I stumbled across Holly Matthews on Facebook in her ‘Ambitious Mum’s Club’. The positivity that flowed out of her was overpowering, but in a good way! Sort of in the way you smell freshly baked bread..mmm yummy!
I participated in her group posts, where we would share our weekly wins and social media accounts, some days we could promote businesses or blogs etc and then I ventured further in to Holly’s World! Holly is a mindset coach, who specialises in the Law of Attraction and basically helps you to boss the s**t out of your life. I took a few of her online, coaching courses, such as Goal Getting and one based on positivity and they were great for giving me a nudge in the right direction. I needed more though, I needed a great big shove, one that said ‘right! get off your arse and do it because that book deal, recording contract, part in a play etc is certainly not going to come knocking on your door’!
So I did, I got off my arse and I jumped in to the ‘Bossing It! Academy’. This academy is changing my life, it’s giving me the tools I need to shape my life in to how I want it. The way I think about my life and the things I am heading towards is totally different to how it was 12 months ago. I’m not shying behind a lost dream from years ago, I’m standing up and telling everyone “I am a singer”! “I am a writer”! I am these things.
Holly Matthews and Caroline Hardwick are two incredible women who are helping thousands of people unleash their inner power. It’s already there inside of us, we just don’t know how to let it out or we’ve forgotten how to let it out. They work with you through six weeks of mindset and life coaching, they help you utilise the Law of Attraction and keep you motivated.
I am just about to start week three of the Academy and I am loving it. My first week had me on an incredible high, I was feeling so calm and peaceful, my focus was off the charts. I managed to get myself in the right frame of mind to realise what I am heading towards. I also came to the conclusion of, yes, I can have the life I want. What is there to stop me? I can achieve my dreams and goals. I will get my book published, I will own a second home, I will be able to take my family on holiday without having to discuss whether or not we can afford it and I will be able to help others in ways I’ve only, previously, dreamt of.
I have had a couple of wobbles, nobody is perfect, but I have just got back up, dusted myself down and got back on with it. The academy gives you a work book to fill out every day to keep you on track and focus your mind, which also includes inspirational quotes and messages. Caroline and Holly also have webinars, audio’s and videos ready for you to watch and listen to. They are also on hand to answer any questions you have and also to keep you going because they know you can do this!
My big thing last week regarding the academy was Caroline giving me something so simple, yet so powerful. I am a writer, I am a writer. I write, therefore I am 😀 I’m excited to see what the next few weeks will bring for me and then excited for how amazing my life will be from here on out because I know what I’m doing now, where I am going and nothing can stop me ∞
Don’t ever let anyone make you think you’re not good enough.
Follow your dreams right now! Don’t wait until tomorrow,
next week, next year. Stop planning, start doing 🙂
