What if you let yourself be OK with being the dumbest person in the room? What if you gave yourself permission to not know everything? What if you let yourself off the hook and allowed yourself not to be better, smarter, more attractive than other people? To not be perfect all the damn time?
How much pressure would that take off of you? How much more would you accomplish simply by being OK with not being the smartest, most successful person in the room? How much more would you learn?
So many of us hold ourselves back by not going after what we want, not going after our dreams or goals because we’re afraid that if we can’t be the best, if we can’t do something perfectly, then we shouldn’t do it at all. Or if we fail then we’ll look like an idiot or a loser or a complete failure. We miss out on learning opportunities because we don’t want to be a dumbass.
So what if you let yourself be the dumbass?
Dumbasses are worthy too…
What does it really mean to love yourself?
So I’m trying something new here…I went on a little Instagram Story adventure and decided to post it on YouTube so that I could upload it here for you guys. I love that Instagram stories are so spur of the moment and really connect you to people on a whole new level, but they do disappear after 24 hours so I thought in case you missed it – here’s my latest video all about self love and what it means to love yourself.
If you’re not following me on Instagram yet, please do! I’m planning to start doing Instagram stories pretty frequently to share things I’ve learned throughout the week. I’ll also post to YouTube so be sure to subscribe to my channel in case you miss my Instagram stories. And if you don’t feel like going to YouTube, I’ll also post them here. That’s the plan at least. 😉
So this video is about my recent revelation about self love and how I wasn’t really practicing it at all, even though I thought I kind of was. What does it really mean to love yourself? Find out what I think in the video!
Forget Saying NO! Why You Should Say YES More
Happy Friday my loves!
Normally, I write pretty extensive posts because I like to provide you with as much value as possible. But today I’m going to keep it short and sweet.
Everyone is obsessed with saying NO more right now. It’s sort of like a trending self-love buzz word. The concept behind it is simple: say no to the things that you don’t want to do. Some people, like Jess McCallum, over at Confident Life, have even started keeping an “Absolute NO List” which I actually quite like because it really helps you figure out the things you don’t want to do in advance – so before you’re even presented with a situation where you’d have to say no or yes, you already have your answer, no going back!
But as important as saying NO might be, I think it’s just as important to for us to start saying “YES” more. And I don’t mean being the “Yes, man” who says yes to everything because he’s afraid of having regrets and not living enough. I’m talking about saying YES more to YOU. Give yourself permission to do things that you might be iffy about. Give yourself permission to spend money on yourself without feeling guilty. Give yourself permission to be selfish. Say YES more to yourself because you deserve it.
