September is turning to October. I hope you are doing what you love, and loving what you are doing.
I just want to share this very important reminder with you.
Want to try on something new?
Then go for it girl!
Yes, sis. It can be that easy. However, I have noticed one problematic behavior ingrained in us by society that is so stubborn, it's so hard to break. Let's not ignore this.
Here's a question:
Do you find yourself seeking approval to try new things?
Apparently, a lot of women I have met and coached have completely accepted this behavior that leads them to seek the approval of others first before they take on to something.
Instead of assertively deciding for themselves how they would artistically express themselves, they look to the "pseudo-authorities", either explicitly or implicitly asking for permission to carry on.
So here's my say: this method of decision-making is unproductive. It delays your creative process. Babe, that pat-on-the-back feeling should not be the measure of your self-confidence. Your value is not found in their praises or well-dones.
You. Get. To. Decide. What. Adds. To. Your. Value.
Stop seeking people's approval Don't get me wrong, sis. I am not suggesting that you just go along with your heart without bringing your brain with you. What I'm talking about is owning the beauty of how you process things.
Gathering ideas from others is important in building your own creativity, but at the end of the day, it's still you who gets to decide. Choose who can contribute to your idea pool. Invest in them. Get it, love?
