As part of my plan to kick this Chronic Fatigue to the curb I’ll be doing another Green Smoothie challenge, I’ll be using it as a cleanse of sorts. I really enjoyed some of the combinations I was able to come up with the last time I did the challenge. I’ll be posting some of the recipes as I go along, I’ll be doing the challenge for the month of April instead of a week.
I’m excited about this new challenge…there’s no time like the present to get things done. I’m ready to get it done!
Every once in a while it’s becomes so easy to be discouraged, whether it’s my weight loss or starting my business or something else. Every now and then I need a little push to remind me that I need to keep pushing and to stay the course.
I was able to have one of those days today. Being in the process of starting my own business has been trying and stressful. When I see others taking the same initiatives it’s a great reminder that i’m not alone. I’m glad to be in such great company, being in the presence of like minded individuals have reminded me that anything is possible.
Have a happy Saturday…
2014 scares me and it’s not even here yet!
It boggles my mind that 2013 is almost done, it seems like we were just ringing in the new year. The phrase “Time waits for no one” is definitely sounding more real to me this year.
It was a big year for me, I turned 30 and finally made the decision to start my own business. I’m not sure what 2014 will hold for my family and I but I’m looking forward to great things. But for now, I’m just really, really nervous and anxious about it all. I’ll revel in that for a bit as I try to finish off my 2013 goals.
There is no substitute for hard work…
At this point in my Entrepreneurial journey, this quote resonates with me more than ever before!
Today is a great day to start planning for the week ahead if you haven’t done so already. I like to take today to figure out my meal plans and spending plans for the week. That way I’m not as stressed as the week progresses.
I’ve made a commitment that I will do something everyday that will bring me closer to my goals, by planning things out I find that I’m more successful at what I accomplish. I’m not guessing my way through the week and being unproductive. It’s a great way to stay on track!
Here’s to a successful week of making things happen!
I woke up this morning with this thought in my mind. In my post yesterday I mentioned that I sometimes feel afraid of my own success, truth be told, I’m also afraid of failure. Anyone who has started their own business or even thought of doing it has definitely experienced this feeling.
My desire to succeed far exceeds my fear of failure, and that’s what keeps me going. I am more afraid of not trying than I am of failing. If I don’t try, I’ve already failed. So, I keep pushing, keep thriving and putting in the work everyday. I do this because I want to leave a legacy for my son, my nephews and my younger sisters. I want so much for them that I’m willing to sacrifice so much of myself without them even knowing.
I don’t expect to be successful at everything, but I will not let fear hinder me from trying.
I am in the midst of transforming my life, I’m starting my own business and it’s one of the most challenging things I’ve ever done. Over the last few years I’ve been evaluating my life and came to the conclusion that I really wanted to work for myself. I knew it wasn’t going to be easy, but I also knew that I was willing to do the work to get there.
I also knew that not everyone would be supportive, not everyone will want to see you succeed, not everyone will be in your corner.
I’ve lost lots of sleep, I’m constantly thinking about new things pertaining to my business, my hopes and dreams for my company keep me going. I’m constantly working to accomplish my goals so that I can build my brand. People say that I’m boring because I don’t splurge or go out all the time, I’d rather be home working on my business.
I don’t expect my business to profit overnight, or become this great success overnight. I know it will take time and lots of work. I also know that If I don’t put in the work now, come next year I’m going to wish I had started sooner.
I’m excited about this new chapter in my life…I’m also very, very scared. There are times when I think I’m scared of my own success, I know that’s a little weird. Especially since I’m going in this to be a successful business owner. I’ve giving it all I’ve got and I’m looking forward to reaping what I sow.
If you’re out there and you have a goal or dream you want to accomplish, I say do it! If you know you should have started last week, last month, last year or even years ago…start now. The time is passing by anyways, so why not make good use of it. Even the smallest step makes a difference.
Get up and get going…
