How often do you tell yourself, “I’ll start tomorrow”? It’s so easy to put things off until the “right” time and place. The truth is, procrastination often doesn’t make things easier, and the present is a precious gift; it’s important to make the most of every moment. There’s no time like right now to get things going. Here are my 5 S’s:
Speak the truth. To get started you need to be honest with yourself about where you are. Through some self-reflection and soul searching, if you’re being truthful, the next steps in your journey will become clear.
Surrender to your process. Be willing to get a little messy. No one is going to have the same journey or the same challenges. Take inspiration from the outside world but don’t try and replicate someone else. Others might make it look easy on the outside, but you have no idea what might be happening under the surface.
Seek support. If we were all born knowing the answers, there wouldn’t be a journey at all. Find a mentor or teacher. Stay curious! Read inspiring books— any tool that affirms you for who you are and where you’re going will make the trip that much easier. After all, it never hurts to ask for help.
Show up. This is work that nobody can do for you. It takes persistence and courage to invest in yourself. Consistency is key. Just remember, this may not be easy but it will be worth the effort.
Share your gifts. Allow yourself to shine bright. Accept the praise from others and learn from criticisms. Putting yourself and your work out there might seem a little scary at first, but hiding them won’t make room for growth. This journey is a chance to flourish. Let it transform you!
