Here we are at the final week. Not only am I nearing the end of the Bossing It! Academy but that also means that we are already over six weeks in to a new year.
What do I have to show for that six weeks?
Well I have lots to show. I am comfortable with who I am. I can easily introduce myself as a writer. I have discovered how fulfilling it is to take time for myself and how it rejuvenates me. This has all been a huge deal for me.
This weekend I went out to the pub (a rare occurrence for me) and I spoke with some people that I hand’t seen for years. These people were, of course, interested in what I have been up to. Now usually my response would have been,
“I’ve not been up to much really”
“I just have a cleaning job at the moment”.
Of course I have been up to things, it’s been seven years!
Four of those years have been spent with one of the most extraordinary human beings ever to walk this earth. My son became a teenager. I bought a house with said extraordinary human.
My point is that I have done things. Obviously I’m not going to relay the whole seven years.
Instead of selling myself short and making out that ‘I’ve not been up to much’, I told these people that I am now writing and singing, that I have a blog, I’m writing a book and I have a YouTube channel.
The world didn’t implode, nobody shouted “You’re not a writer, you’re a cleaner”!
That has been my fear. It is no longer my fear.
I can, from now on, introduce myself as a writer and a singer without fearing the feedback. This was and is a huge deal for me. I sat with my friends around me and openly said ‘this is what I do’. There was no judgement, just encouragement.
This is only going to get better, the more I put it out there the easier it gets.
If I hadn’t have been part of the Bossing It! Academy there is no way I would have discussed my writing and singing so openly. I would just carry on hiding and that is not what I am about. I don’t want to hide my talents. I love singing and writing, I want to showcase them.
They are me now, I am a writer and a singer and I have so much more to offer. This is only the beginning ∞
If you know you have so much more inside you but you don’t quite know how to be aware of it or you’re scared of unleashing it then the Bossing It! Academy is for you. Click the link below to start bossing the s**t out of your life 🙂
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 🙂
