Am I On The Right Track?

I ask myself, probably once a month: Am I on the right track?

Am I keeping first things first.  Is my compass still pointing due north?  Am I still on the right path? And even though the answer is “yes”, that little bit of nagging self doubt is holding me stationery.


Currently, I have felt that I am standing on a ledge ready to jump off and fly.  I have an excitement around the work I am doing. I feel that my success is just beyond my reach.  But, I still have a bit of doubt. Have I checked and triple checked my equipment? Do I have all the information I need? Do I know what to do after I take off?  What will I do if I fall?

I am on the precipice and need to jump to get to the next level.  But, honestly, I am still carrying a bit of fear.  I know I have to jump and as soon as I do, I won’t have time to think about the consequences.  I will be too busy.

So to quote Nike “Just do it.”

A Fresh Start

Every year I look forward to a fresh start in January.  Then by the end of the first quarter nothing seems different.  Until now. Over the last two years I have decided that I should find my passion and follow it.  It was hard to identify at first.  I knew what made me happy, family, dancing (especially salsa), music ( all types ) and traveling. But passion felt bigger than this.

Picture2My coach told me that passion comes from inside us; from our world view. It creates in us a want to make a difference.  I considered this along with understanding what my strengths and natural talents were. (we all have them)

My passion is so focused and it drives me everyday. I get up with an excitement to see what the day holds.  I am learning things and challenging myself in ways I was so afraid of.  But in the process I know that even if I fail that I will learn more about myself and it will only fuel my passion.

This year will be fresh, because I am.

Be the Queen you know you can Bee…

Are you confident enough to ‘bee’ you?

Have you ever noticed how you walk into a room of strangers?  Do you try to make yourself as small and unnoticeable as possible? Do you dress in black or a blah color so you don’t stand out?

Always Wear Your Invisible Crown

What about when you are going to a party with friends? Do you dress differently? Do you walk in the place like you own it?

I really let my physical self show how confident I was. Which wasn’t very confident at all.  I did everything I could to blend in.  Then one day, I was at a leadership training class.  I heard someone say, “Fake it until you Make it.”  That really resonated with me.  I realized at that moment, if I wanted people to see me in a different way, I would have to fake it until it was me.

I wanted people to see me as confident, outgoing, happy and full of life.  Not that person I had been: fearful, sad and anonymous. So, I went about convincing myself first. Just like an actress, I dressed the part. I wore the things that made me feel good and look good. Then I got out my smile.  I used it all day, everyday. I used every resource I could to increase my confidence, such as reaching out to a support person when in doubt, reading every book I could to improve those things that needed attention and made sure I wasn’t telling myself negative statements.

I have even had people say to me, you look different.  It is not the hair, makeup, clothes. It is the confidence!

Over the last two years, my confidence has grown.  I am no longer faking it…this is who I am.
