Limiting Beliefs and Creating the Space to Think Bigger, Brighter, Higher!
Hello my friends! Whether you are online friends or inlife friends ( I think I just made up that word!) I hope to see more of you, online or inline!
I truly care about you and your hopes and dreams. This is a #keepinitreal post. That means I’m sharing some personal stuff with you. Look for other posts like this, using my hashtag… I have lots more coming up…
Which brings me to my thoughts today…
I am done with the old, tired, judgmental story I have been telling myself. I am tired of limiting beliefs. I guess I must admit that they must have been serving me in some way. I no longer desire that service. It’s time to get back on track and tell the story that actually is the one I know and like. Get back to basics, God, family, music with a big serving of love to tie them all together. Phew! Now that’s a story you gotta love! Let’s all create the space to think bigger, brighter and higher! You CAN achieve your goals! Tell yourself a new fresh story. Then, get to work and take action. Practice more, learn more songs, put yourself out there! I’m doing it, too!
Take a look at this awesome quote by Tiffany Bymaster, aka Coach Glitter…
I’ve been doing my journaling and listening to and reading posts and books by inspirational people a lot lately. Even more than normal! *(I will list my books and podcasts at the bottom) I am taking an online academy with the amazing Coach Glitter to learn more about video and social media and truly to challenge myself. Go check out her site! She has a waitlist happening now.
I have learned so much it’s unreal! She is someone I have followed for a long time and I have never taken an online academy before. Sure, I’ve jumped into online webinars here and there, but this is TOTALLY different. It’s been life-changing. Dramatic? Maybe! Truthful? Damn straight! This class is making me be accountable. This class and its participants are teaching me real life, entrepreneurial skills. Our challenge this weekend was to do a vision board! Gotta get specific and be specific! Here’s how it started…
Here’s how it finished! My creative hubby had a fabulous idea and we made it 3D! I did a brain dump, (another Coach Glitter idea) and really focused on my biggest dreams and goals. I’m so happy! I’m looking at it everyday and allowing it to inspire me to take the steps I need to take each and every day to achieve these goals.
Already I have a booked a couple of corporate gigs, put out some show feelers for Dangerous Curves, my vocal jazz trio, and I told my voice/piano teacher/mentor just what I want to accomplish by the end of this year and by Spring of next year (maybe a piano conference in my future?? more on that in a later post!)
Did you happen to see my last post? It was all about a planner that I love and I am recommending for the upcoming year. You can find it here on Kickstarter . I just want to highlight this again as this planner is not only lovely, it is, in my humble opinion, a beautifully effective way to brain dump, set your goals and make them happen! Here are a few of the pretty pages inside the planner. Be sure to check out the video on Kickstarter! You will LOVE Beth Anne AND be inspired by her!
Lastly, here is my heart, the reason we do everything and work so hard and boy do I learn from this Little Man everyday…and yes, we made him a vision board, too! Totes adorbs, don’tcha think!?!
*As promised, here is the list of books and podcasts I listen to for learning and uplifting;
So, here we are at the end of the first week of school and the beginning of September! Use this time as a fresh beginning. No more limiting beliefs! Get your songs learned, get your practice in, get to those auditions, get your vision board made, find the perfect planner!
