Also, the Challenge Loop #PowerbowlADay Challenge is coming to a close on Sunday!
Does that mean I’m going to stop having my powerbowl every day? Absolutely not! I crave this big bowl of power every single day and I love being able to share them via instagram to you all!
*Spaghetti squash, roasted brussels, peas, black beans, avocado, asparagus,
& then I topped it with some salsa mixed with a bout 2-3 TB of Nutritional Yeast!
Power Thought of the day; Have you ever created a fear?
Lately I’ve been doing this thing where I am creating fears that haven’t even happened yet. Sometimes I find myself being afraid of situations that I am clearly making up in my own mind. Yesterday I had one of those moments where I felt that I wasn’t doing enough for moving forward with my business ideas, when in reality, I am moving forward every single day – I just didn’t take the time to reflect on how much I have done to get to the point I’m at now.
Whether it’s your business, a relationship, a goal, or a task – we often are afraid of moving forward only because of our own fears we create! Last night I laid in bed with a busy brain (which usually happens anyway to Entrepreneurs like myself), but I couldn’t help but catch myself being negative about my progress with my business ideas. Then I quickly stopped myself & thought about how much I really have accomplished and how big ideas like the ones I have, don’t just happen over night.
My boy Dozie from BN SHAPE posted this & it definitely hit home with me.
I find myself speaking to myself like an outsider & I say, “Kasey, hold up. You are enough. What you’re doing is enough. Look how far you’ve come.” I think sometimes when we are working on something for ourselves, we only see the negatives because it’s happening to us and we live it everyday. When in reality, people looking at us from the outside are (hopefully) seeing our accomplishments and the things we are bringing to their attention to help them and inspire. Is it ironic that I woke up to this amazing quote by one of my inspirations, Nicole Wilkins?
Um, she obviously was reading my mind. What she says is SO true! I am the one creating these fears which haven’t happened yet. And to be honest, in the past, whenever I initially “fear” something – once I actually push forward and continue on…that fear goes away! Why? Because I am moving forward confidently in the directions of my dreams & to be honest, I have some pretty cool things happening and I can’t wait to share them with you!
Just like good ol’ Babe Ruth would say…
“Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game”
And guess what, if we do happen to think we struck out, he would say…
“Every strike brings me closer to the next home run.”
And if we truly believe that with every strike, we are learning, growing, & getting another chance, Babe would say…
“It’s hard to beat a person who never gives up.”
Thanks to my girl candyfit for these positive daily affirmations!
It’s amazing how if we change our way we react to thoughts – it can truly turn things around!
It’s ironic (or is it?) that once my thoughts turned positive, some pretty cool things happened! I got a shipment of something I will be sharing SO soon on the blog along with some pretty awesome inspirational messages from some followers. These examples are my daily reminders that I was placed where I am at this point in time for a reason. Some things aren’t just coincidence, they are meant to be.
I hope these quotes will help you like they helped motivate me today.
Do you have a favorite affirmation that you repeat to yourself to help change that way you react to a situation? I’d love to hear it!
