It seems like right around the time that you’ve mastered your job, is right when you start to lose your motivation. Most women see this as a sign that things have gotten sedentary or that they’re ready for something different… but sometimes you just need to make a few changes to get back to a blissful-work state.
Let’s be honest. You know that you were created to do more than what you’re doing right now. You’ve wanted to evolve into the woman that you know you’re meant to be for quite some time. But, sitting on the sidelines watching, cheering, waiting… will never take you to the next level. Only you can make that happen.
We live in busy. No matter how hard we try, we constantly feel as if there’s not enough time in a day to get everything done (and practice a little self-care in the process). It can be very frustrating and cause stress and feelings of overwhelm.
I used to speak about the worst-case scenario… and say I was being a realist. Rationalizing to myself that I was preparing for what might be…
… just in case.
It’s easy to think that we’re guarding ourselves against disappointment by only speaking to what we think will happen… what we have convinced ourselves to be the worst possible outcome.
But that wasn’t the case at all.
Let me a little transparent with you…
When I first launched the tiffanynicoleforever blog, I was all over the place. I couldn’t decide which direction I wanted to take my message. It’s the curse of having knowledge and experience in many different areas. I literally had no idea where to start. I even questioned if what I had to share could really make a difference in the lives of my audience. I didn’t want to be just another blogger, writing articles and creating content just because. I wanted to change lives.
The not so funny thing about fear and doubt is that they come out of nowhere. One minute I was super confident… the next, I was second guessing everything. Reminding myself that although I had life experience and loved writing, I hadn’t published new content since 2011 – and I had only (finally) completed my undergrad degree in 2012, after returning to school post-2009-economic-crash.
