I am in the process of revamping my career. One of the first steps in this development is to figure out where you want to go in your career and what do you need to change in order to get there. I realized that I was enslaved by the old me—my old thoughts that led to poor actions. I needed to break the mental chains and FREE myself from all the things that were holding me back. So, I did it. Of course, it took time. The saying “old habits die hard” is sometimes true. However, if you want it bad enough, you can let it go and move forward. So the old habit that was enslaving me was ‘self-doubt’ and oh boy, I had it bad. I was a great cheerleader for family and friends, even strangers but deep inside, I was lacking some confidence. It wasn’t about my intelligence or looks, it was about my talents. It was about one of the most important things that I have so much passion for. It was the dream that I had since I was a little girl. It was the visions that I always saw myself doing. It was about my career. Sometimes if you listen to the nay-sayers long enough, you’ll start to believe them. If you allow their negative words to sink into your brain, it’ll leave an imprint that is freakin’ hard to get rid of. I love proving people wrong when it’s about myself (and other things too:) I honestly feel like this was another challenge in my life that I needed to go through because overcoming it, would make the victory sooooo much sweeter! And I love a sugar high from time to time.
