I was speaking with one of my clients this week, and he told me that he was removing people from social media because he wanted to post workout videos of himself, and didn’t want to come off as egotistical. Something he was working very hard at, he was hesitant to share because of judgment. I am here to tell you that no matter where you go, or what you do- someone will always be judging you. That is something you cannot change. However, what you CAN change is how you feel, and your thoughts about it. You are in control of your thoughts and emotions. Where are your negative thoughts stemming from? Why do you care what other people think? Honestly, I want to know! ( a link will be provided below to send these answers)
Why are you nervous about sharing things that are amazing!? You should be proud of yourself. I celebrate every single victory that I have! I don’t go a single day without celebrating something.
I was nervous at the beginning of my journey to becoming a life coach. I would post inspirational photos & videos of myself on my social media, and if they didn’t get many likes, I would delete them. I was afraid of looking silly. What I have learned is that if you reach only ONE person, and your content positively impacts them in some way, then you have a win! A reason to celebrate!
Maybe that single comment or photo is someones “reason why”. Sharing things that are positively impacting you can make such an incredible wave.
If you are worried about someone not liking it, or even saying something negative about it- I strongly urge you to ask yourself why they are in your life in the first place. Going further, whatever it is they say will help you grow. No matter what it is! You may be growing in the sense that you have the strength to ignore or remove them from your life, or maybe they have something helpful to say, that might be just a little scary to hear because you aren’t sure if you’re ready to make whatever that move is. There is no sense in holding yourself back. Be open to suggestions. If they are bad ones, just continue on with your day. No harm, no foul.
If you are investing your time in something, and you are proud of your work- you shouldn’t be hesitating to share your success! The thing that you are scared to reveal that will actually change someone’s life for the better.
It is okay to live a healthy lifestyle, and it is okay for you to want better for yourself. If you find that the people in your life are holding you back from wanting, or doing that, you need to think about closing the gap (there will be a video referencing this term below). You should never hold yourself back from doing something that is best for you because of judgment from other individuals around you.
If you are doing something you are proud of- DO NOT hesitate to share it. Live your life free of judgment, and focus on your wins rather than what other people think of it. If it makes you feel good, continue doing it. Have the courage to share it knowing that you may positively impact someone. Close the gap on people that make you feel inadequate, or aren’t positively contributing to your life.
