Oh man ... you know what gets me SUPER EXCITED?!?!
Salt and vinegar potato chips.
Those and ... goal setting!!! I swear, give me a planner to write some goals in with a bag of salt and vinegar chips to eat while scheming and I am one happy camper!
Pardon my language, but the F word just seemed appropriate for the title and it's also how I was feeling at the time. In fact ... the language in this post MIGHT be like ... PG-13. Hehe.
Yes, I'm just gonna throw a couple effing F bombs out there today so woo hoo!
Let's face it ... depression happens and yet, the show must go on! I feel like depression is a topic that isn't discussed too often among creative entrepreneurs and yet, it's a pretty prevalent thing to ignore. In fact, according to this article 30% of entrepreneurs are depressed!
Pardon the F word, but it's how I was feeling when I wrote the title. I mean ... I just get really worked up about people going after their dreams, dag nabbit! And guess what? As much as you might find the whole mindset thing to be a bit corny, developing the right mindset is an essential part of successfully chasing down (and getting) your dreams like a starry-eyed go getter!
Fear: "An unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that some one or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat." Unfortunately, this unpleasant emotion holds a lot of people back and keeps them from going after their dreams!
(Not cool fear, NOT cool. Yeah fear, I'm talking to YOU!)
A lot of people put their dreams on hold or choose not to pursue them at all because they fear something. Failure. Rejection. Being broke. Being laughed at. Being unsuccessful. You get the idea! In fact you've probably experienced fear in many ways already! Fear is NORMAL. Everyone should be experiencing it every now and then. The problem comes, however, when you let fear hold you back.
Ah, being alone. Some people love it, others hate it. Some people prefer it, others are terrified of it. Whether it's being alone for just a couple days or for weeks, months or years, I think it's super important to learn to be happy.
Totally ... alone.
Just you ... and yourself. No one else.
Have I made my point yet about what alone means? Hehe, good! I've always been an introvert at heart, so being alone has never been a problem for me. In fact, I require time alone in order to recharge and not go crazy! But I've also been single and "alone" for months and years at a time. Sure, I felt a little lonely every now and then but ultimately, I was still happy on my own
