Just START somewhere!
So this is really happening… It’s terrifying and overwhelming at the same to write and publish my first blog post. It took me a while to figure out what route to take, but now I know I’m ready to create my own future, the life I’ve dreamed of.
Therefore my FIRST and BEST advice is: JUST START SOMEWHERE.
I never considered myself sitting here in Dubai, where I’m currently for a short layover, enjoying my hotel view and having this strong feeling to share my thoughts and experience with the world. And most of all to be a real and inspirational example to all woman out there, who are longing for a FREE and ADVENTUROUS life.
If there is something you want that a makes your eyes glow and your heart beat faster – JUMP STRAIGHT INTO IT – without limiting yourself with disbelief. No matter if it’s quitting your job to build your own business, starting a blog, going on a sabbatical or another memorable adventure you dream of. Go for it.
I spent too much time thinking about it, making plans, not taking any action and ended up still feeling the frustration although my life seemed so perfect to the outside world. But TRUE FREEDOM starts from within. It requires the ability to discover and listen to your inner voice, then step out, follow and live your vision.
With my former mindset and beliefs I would say it was a „waste of time“. But it wasn’t. We all know life can only be understood backwards, so after experiencing different challenges and plans that didn’t work out, I arrived to the conclusion that it’s not about the „HAPPY ENDING“ or the final goal – IT’S ABOUT THE STORY, the path in which you’re going. I started to believe that everything happens for a reason and there are lessons life wants to teach us. I was able to appreciate the development I’ve made by going through the difficult times. I grew and I still am. With every next step I leave a bit of my comfort zone behind. You know what – it feels so damn good.
I know it lies in our human nature to resist CHANGE and it too easy to hide in our comfort zones – afraid of crossing the line. We love to have our habits. Of course, growth and change can be painful. But for me the most terrifying thing is to look back and have regrets, knowing I stayed somewhere I don’t belong…
So think about it. IS THIS THE LIFE YOU WANT TO LIVE?
If we want to live a live TRUE TO OURSELF we have to cross THIS line. Leave our comfort zone. This is what makes us grow – so don’t be afraid to grow. There are never guarantees that your plans will work out the way you want them to but every mistake, every challenge, every change allows you to step towards a better version of yourself. A step closer to the life you dreamed of. There is so much to experience.
Your life, your dreams and vision for the future are yours. It’s not about the opinion of others. Steve Jobs once said: „Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
So, never give up on your intuition!
What drove and still drives me is true freedom. I’m hungry for adventures and seeing this wonderful world we are living in. Being brave, taking risks, because nothing can substitute those experiences with all the journeys I take.
As life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we react to it – I started to see my mistakes as opportunities and embrace all challenges. We only have this one life – let it be your own bestselling story.
Take your time to understand your „WHY“. This is what drives you.
It doesn’t matter how slow you go, as long as you go.
Let fear become your faith and fire that keeps you moving forward.
Once you DECIDE to take this journey, it’s a continuous process of growing and learning. This path is not a straight line. It’s like a spiral, which for me is the adventurous part and I decided to trust this journey and take the chances life is offering to me.
I finally chose myself and made myself a priority. We all deserve that and we all can do that.
