Go for it!
The start of a new year is a great way to leave the past behind and forge on into the future with fresh ideas, new goals, positive thoughts and a promise to yourself to finally follow your passions; be brave, courageous and real!
Sound familiar? If it does, good for you - you've made a conscious decision that you're going to go for it and do something about making your dreams come true. This might be through launching your business on a public platform, buying that pastel kit you've had your eye on or maybe it's enrolling into the course you've always wanted to do - whatever it is and however big or small you deserve a big pat on the back for taking charge of your creative life.
I have always had creative projects on the go ever since I can remember, whether it be writing poetry, creating recipes, making art for exhibitions, studying or trying business ideas out online or at the markets and with all of these ventures, there have been epic fails and fabulous successes. Before setting up your idea or challenging yourself in a study situation you have to give yourself permission to fail and make mistakes. With little bumps you will learn and grow and be able to implement positive changes to make your dreams less bumpy for the future.
So, what are you doing to embark on your new venture? Here are some little tips/thoughts to get you motivated and go for it!
- Write down your long term goals so they are in front of you
- From these work out each little step you need to take to achieve them
- Organise a time schedule/deadlines to stay on track
- Make a marketing and promotional plan
- Follow inspirational people on Instagram
- Surround yourself with supportive, kind and real people
- Experiment, always experiment
- Research what other successful people (whom you admire) are doing
- Be a doer, not a gonna
- Be patient with yourself - it takes years to build a brand, it takes years to learn a skill - essentially it takes time to be great
