[ThursdayClub] GROW Better!
It’s kind of a cold gloomy day here in Connecticut – I’m not going to lie, I feel like I’ve been working on this renovation house for EVER. My wanderlust genes are begging me “Cindy…let’s GO!”…Patience grasshopper, we are almost done is what I have to tell that untamed beast of my soul!
This leads me to today’s lesson and it’s all about personal growth. Hell, this whole group, project, and mission of the Thursday Club is around personal growth and development – but this week we are going deep and narrow and working on ONE thing that may be holding you back.
First, let me set the record straight – 100% of the time it’s YOU who is holding you back. What I’m going to narrow down on is WHAT or WHO are you ALLOWING to hold you back.
Let me share a little insight into the little things that really turn into big things…of course, I have a personal story because my life has been one hell of a lesson.
I need to show up more on Video. I’m a writer and speaker – those are my comfort zones. Seeing myself on video has always been meh for me. I know, classic woman in her late 50’s who is homing in on every wrinkle. Just being honest. I’ve fought it tooth and nail. The reality is, the world loves video. Instagram reels, Tik Toks, Facebook lives, and YouTube is where I need to be AND still do my writing.
Coach said – get over it and just do it. They don’t have to be perfect. Let it go.
So I did.
I started small.
I started doing weekly roundups in our private Facebook Group – The Thursday Club Insiders
Next up – Instagram Reels & Tik Tok – I’m still figuring it all out. But tiny steps are building. Each time I’m getting better and better. I’m learning and I’m GROWING.
Coach says it takes 100 times of doing something before you really “get it” – before it’s comfortable and easy and you don’t think about it.
Tiny daily actions, lead to habits leads to transformation leads to GROWTH.
This year – 2021 – I told myself I was going to be on all those video channels consistently by the end of the year. I’m getting there slowly, but it took going outside my comfort zone and allowing myself to fail and learn.
The REAL back story isn’t the lack of doing videos – it was the lack of belief in ME that was the toxic piece of all this. My FEAR of judgment (isn’t it always?).
So today I want you to think about WHAT OR WHO is holding you back from what you want. Maybe it’s a “friend” who continues to shoot you down, not show up for you and you are beginning to realize they aren’t really your confident and shouldn’t be in your circle of 5. That doesn’t mean you can’t associate with that person, it means you need serious boundaries.
No one puts you in a Corner! Time to channel Patrick!
Maybe it’s a what – like me. Maybe you need to get your thoughts in order and go stand up to that boss or co-worker and show them your worth – ask for the promotion or raise. If you don’t get it -be willing to walk. Empower yourself. Maybe that’s your WHAT?
Maybe it’s just giving up your daily cocktail. Maybe it’s not hitting the snooze alarm. Maybe it’s filing for divorce. Maybe it’s pulling the trigger and booking that bucket list dream vacation to Italy.
Whatever it is – take action this week. You are worth it.
Have an awesomesauce weekend!
Are you coming to Belize with me? I’m only bringing 10 people – we still have some spots available. It is going to be the kick-off of a LIFE CHANGING year called the Courage Summit. You are worth it. Learn more about it HERE.
