Truth time – The Real me needs some work.
I am confident that I am not 100% happy with my body – heck who is?!
If we were all confident in our bodies gym’s wouldn’t exist!
I am confident that I am working hard on that – As hard as I
can want to.
We all have areas where we don’t put in the effort we know we should.
I am confident that I often fail at that hard work – and occasionally binge on Ice cream to feel better!
Although – I will say Ice Cream hasn’t even been in my mind in a few months!
I am confident that I have a new determined focus to succeed – because if I don’t take care of me, who will?
With a new year- many think of things they want to change.
Personally, those changes have been happening for over a month now! Research and classes for my business, re-joined the gym and I actually go, planner organization has begun, podcasts full of inspirational speakers, and building a community around me to help me succeed.
Even doing any of that has been a huge step for me. I questioned a lot of the steps I make and got stuck in something my friend calls – Analysis Paralysis. I spent so much time analyzing that I didn’t spend a lot of time doing. Every step of every process was over analyzed, and underdone. Going for a simple run became needing my water, shoes, outfit, music, and running plan perfectly paired. If one thing got off, I froze.
I cannot say what the exact cure for my analysis paralysis was, but some of it came from a big dose of reality a coach gave me. “Melendy – the only person keeping you from being successful is you…” I knew the truth, but I hadn’t heard the voice. I knew it was me – I knew I needed a mindset shift, but – I hadn’t heard it. The only thing keeping me from running – was me. What was keeping me from growing my business?Me! The only one standing in the way of my happiness – you guessed it – ME!
I spent a very long time trying to be perfect.
In whose eyes? I don’t know. I felt like I couldn’t go out of the house without the perfect outfit, couldn’t ‘go live’ without makeup, silence, a perception of everything is okay. therefore – I froze. Guess what – Everything isn’t always okay. I know, Shocker! I am learning to live in the chaos of life, and be willing to step out of my “perfect” comfort zone.
Shifting my mindset to a “Do it” model, and subsequently pushing myself into the work that is going to drive me forward has been a huge boost for me. Scheduling my time, being intentional about my actions, believing I am worthy of the time, and believing others are worthy of my time as well has created an amazing arc in my attitude, and the enjoyment of the day to day!
