It is Entrepreneurial Spirit Saturdays.
One of my favorite days during the Summer Blitz.
I never thought I had entrepreneurial spirit whatsoever.
And the idea of ‘success’ did not interest me and it was nothing I thought I could have.
I didn’t think someone like me could be successful.
Not pretty enough.
Not thin enough.
Not smart enough.
Not good at finishing things.
Not a rule follower.
An out-of-the-box thinker.
But the truth is I am a born leader with smarts and balls and a vision.
And I, just like all of us, CAN be successful even if we do not fit into any kind of traditional mold of what ‘success’ should look like.
So here is the deal.
You CAN be successful no matter what.
You do not have to be young, thin, pretty, have an amazing IQ, have a perfect plan, have a perfect relationship with everyone in your life, be nice and happy all the time.
Our society loves extremes and perfection (and then knocking it down).
You have to be one or the other.
It’s such a bunch of horseshit.
You just have to be you.
You know how you can be successful?
By honoring all the parts of yourself.
By moving forward with your dreams, knowing you will probably fail, trip, fall, make a gigantic fool of yourself at some point (my biggest fear).
You will piss someone off, if not a whole bunch of people (which means you are probably heading in the right direction). And not because you are being a douche (maybe you will be but this won’t really piss people off too much). What will piss people off is that you are moving forward and that means you will have boundaries and things you will need to do and that means you may not be able to please everyone.
How can you be such a selfish douche???
You are not.
You are dreaming big and getting shit done.
You know how you can be successful no matter what?
Be at peace with not being at peace.
You signed up for this crazy assed ride so you might as well enjoy the ride.
You may spend days on end crying.
Busting through self (or other) imposed limitations brings some shit UP.
Ask for help with healing this (NOT FIXING IT/YOU FOR FUCKS SAKE. YOU DO NOT NEED FIXING. HEALING IS DIFFERENT. OKAY?). There are healers out there that seriously help. This is one of mine.
So just because you have been crying, a bit unproductive and feeling like a big hot mess and good gravy is that a ZIT??
YOU CAN STILL HAVE SUCCESS & BE SUCCESSFUL.
You can still help others.
You can still be a rock star.
You are a rock star.
Claim that shit and know, know in your heart of hearts that the road, the journey (the one you probably signed up for before you even were conceived) is messy, filled with uncertainty, twisty and turny and bumpy and at the end of the day whole gang of wild crazy fun.
Ready to have some fun???
I am and I hope you will join me for the ride and are ready to get messy and dirty.
And be successful no matter what.
