Magnify the good, not the bad

Human being’s we are wonderful and complex creatures. For all our brains, power and ability we can often be too smart for our own good. We over think things, magnify the small and insignificant and give into fear more than we care to admit. 

I have been trying to be mindful in my daily life of not getting too absorbed in my own shit and trying not to magnify the bad instead of amplifying the good. When we are being mindful and trying to change a habit it seems to become a big deal in life, am I right

Helloooo

Startup life often means working from home, which I mainly and for the most part love. I have an office, I don’t have any problems with motivating myself to do my work and if anything the struggle I have is to have better boundaries and stop working so much… and when deadlines are building, and the work is pilling up working from home can be great because you get up, do a work out and then you are straight into your workday. 

Be your own kind of beautiful

In life, love and work you won’t be everyone’s cup of tea. At some stage in our lives we all realise this, and the sooner we do, the better our lives are. I was lucky to recognise this in my mid 20’s, and as a result, my relationships, friendships and overall self-esteem have been all the better for it. It is a beautiful thing when you just don’t give an F what anyone else thinks about you…

Courage. Persistence. Resilience.

Courage, persistence and resilience have become daily words that bobble around in my head since I started my own business… 

Courage because it takes a particular kind of madness, courage or recklessness (whatever you want to call it) to step out of a stable full-time job and follow your passions. To pursue a dream that no one can see but you. To sink your savings into a dream and take on debt. And spending your time working harder than you ever have in your life for less money than you’ve ever earned in those early days to get a business up and running.

Morning…!

As I grow, not older but hopefully wiser I have started to understand the importance of having a good morning routine, I know that sounds like a bit of silly thing to say, but it has become even more critical since I’ve been running my own business. 

It begins with you

One of the most important things I am learning in running my own business is just how important self-care is. Putting yourself as your number one priority is not just good for your own health but also crucial for you to succeed in the fast-moving world that is running your own company. 

Learn to Rest not quit

What no one tells you about entrepreneurship and running your own business is how much you just don’t have an off switch. Clocking on from 9 – 5 is a thing of the past and all you have now is an awake or asleep switch. Which means the majority of the time you are awake, you are in work mode.
