Over the last few months I have been going to a coach; the talented Anna Vogel, behind Mindful Mojo. We spent the sessions exploring a part of my life I have been struggling with for some while, and it has been both challenging and emotionell, but I feel so much stronger.
Yesterday however, I had my last session and we spent it talking about something completely different: my work life.
I have been struggling with my motivation over the last few months, growing impatient and even questioning myself in regards of what I want to do. Having this feeling that there is some kind of recipe to success in this business, but I don´t want to follow it. I want to do my own thing. And when Anna asked me what is holding me back I realised:
What often holds us back, is fear
Fear of failing. Fear of not being good enough. Fear of not being liked. And during the session I realised I have been holding back from what I have wanted to do for a while now. Because I am afraid people will judge me.
I came to the realisation that fear is nothing more than an obstacle that stands in the way of progress. In overcoming our fears, we can move forward. Stronger and wiser within ourselves.
Because doing what “works” might work at that exact moment, but in the long run it will not uphold. But by doing what you love on the other hand and run a business with your heart, that will always stick.
And it will make you so much happier! Time to follow the heart, once again ❤
Lots of love from Henriette Sophia
