I have always wanted to start a blog, in fact I have previously started a couple. But I have never got past the first post because unfortunately I have allowed my inner negative Nelly to talk me out of it. Negative Nelly likes make me to feel incapable. She loves to whisper in my ear, ” you can’t write a blog, you have nothing to say”. Plus she takes great pleasure in telling me that no one would be interested in anything I have to say. As well as informing me that there are loads of blogs out there, so there’s no point starting one because everybody is doing it. Just to rub salt in the wound she laughs that all those other blogs are also way better than anything I could ever create.
But what Nelly doesn’t know is that this time I am fighting back. I am not going to allow her to belittle me and consume my mind. Since I first started my blog, approximately six months ago, I have been working on myself. You see the only way I can shut Nelly up is if I challenge her, this means mastering my mindset. To do this I have been reading lots of inspirational books and listening to people such as Wayne Dyer, Tony Robbins and Gabby Bernstein. I have joined Facebook groups and met other woman that inspire me and encourage me to grow.
By allowing Nelly to set up camp inside my head means that I will never know of all the amazing adventures that are out there waiting for me. By giving Nelly room to grow I only make myself miserable and why would I want to do that?
I know this blog post is only short and a little random. But I just wanted to make a start, even if it sits here, seen by my eyes only, at least I have taken the first steps on my adventure.
Thank you for stopping by
“Whatever you want to do, no matter how big it is, simply start by taking one little right action.
If you want to write, write the first draft of a blog post. If you want to start a podcast, record an episode using whatever equipment you have available. If you want to make inspirational YouTube videos, set up your channel. If you want to design jewelry, make one simple piece.
Even if you want to do a hundred things….. start with one little right action.
You don’t build anything big overnight. And if you believe you need to do everything right now, I guarantee that will stop you from doing anything at all.
So just take one little right action”
