I have direction and purpose.
I am inspired.
I wake up each morning with a sense of creative urgency.
I retire to bed at night with feelings of satisfaction, or fatigue, but movement.
We all are on our own unique journeys and all have our own particular set of circumstances.
I signed up and began studying the modules in late March, so I am heading into my 4th month of being a part of this positive and supportive community.
I spent part of our coronavirus lockdown studying, as our other business was shut down. I have 2 young children who I needed to school at home. I have a home to run. So I made use of what time I had to study and learn and read and listen, and grow.
These days I have a business to-do list that never gets any shorter, but I am always learning and sharing what I learn, and I am incredibly motivated by the items on this list.
I enjoy the work, so I don’t find it hard to apply myself, but I also take full responsibility for my life and I consciously take time off. I strive to live a life with balance: being present with my family, while I learn about business, and apply what I learn in the digital business space.
I believe that what I am learning has great value. I believe that we will be doing business in the online space for many years to come. If AI replaces us, then we will have to pivot, but until then I believe having the skills at our fingertips to create and run an online business, is very important. In fact, it is vital to do business now.
I am interested in a range of subjects, and the range seems to expand every day. I always have a new video or book or article on my waiting list.
I have moments of fear, and times when I doubt that I will earn enough to support my family.
I have moments of elation when I hear of someone like me who created her businesses, just like me, and made a success of it. The logic assures me that I can too.
I am taking steps every day and because of this, my small business is building.
My worst and best moments come when I compare myself to others. Self-doubt accompanies comparison every time, but I am also on a path of refreshing my mindset, so I am increasingly able to swing myself back from despair, to hope.
I have come this far.
I am excited about the future of my business. I spend time visualising the future me, and I am looking forward to meeting her.
I am interested and open to seeing where it will lead. I won’t be surprised if I will look back in 5 years to see that I have created something of which I have not yet thought.
I found the digital skills course to be clear and well planned out. I continue to learn so much from the team and the community at SFM.
I strive to create quality and to send out material, or content, whether on my Instagram page or in this blog, that creates good somewhere, that inpires a moment of light somehow, that benefits people somehow and inspires them to grab hold of the proverbial reins and create their own fabulous lives.
Because I am, and you can.
