The key to success

“They key to success is to start before you are ready.”⁣⁣

I used to think that one day there will be this ONE perfect day where I will have everything set up and then I will be ready to go.⁣⁣ On this specific day I would have made enough experience in the "real world", I would have saved up a lot of money and most likely this would have taken me years before I could pursue my dream by then.⁣⁣

And while I think you should have a backup plan, or at least some money on the side that you can live off for a while once you quit your job, this one specific day won't just magically appear out of the blue. You will never be completely ready, to be honest.⁣⁣

Actually, if you continue to wait for years and years because people tell you so BECAUSE they don't know any better unless they know what they are talking about, you will miss out on so many great opportunities.

And chances are that you won't go after your dreams after all because you simply accepted the fact that you will never become your own boss and you will convince yourself that your current situation is just fine.⁣⁣

But why would you want to put your dreams on hold years after years?

Why would you want to continue living a life that others want you to live?

Why would you want to put your happiness as the last point on your list of priorities?

I mean I get it. Maybe there are circumstances where you have to put it on hold, where you can't pursue your least not just yet.⁣⁣

BUT if there is nothing that serious that is holding you back, then why not at least TRY to go after your dreams?⁣⁣

I mean if all fails, you can always go back to what you used to do.

You have nothing to lose.

But at least you had the courage to try. You will always be one step ahead of the ones that never tried these things.⁣⁣If you never try, you never know. And if you never know, years..or decades from start to wonder what could have happened if you actually listend to YOURSELF and YOURSELF only and have pursued your dreams, living the life you always wanted to live. -xo, Chantal ⁣⁣

Why your close ones don't believe in your dreams.

The truth about your loved ones.

Let's talk about the people who you THOUGHT they would believe in your dreams just as much as you do.

⁣⁣Let's imagine these two scenes right here:⁣⁣

Scene 1:⁣

You are pretty convinced by your business idea and you are already hustling hard for it. You are excited, you wanna share it with the world and just tell everyone around you how proud you are of your business /business idea.⁣⁣

Scene 2:⁣

You talk to your loved ones..can be your parents, close friends, your s/o...whoever is dear to you, and you drop the "I want to quit my job and become my own boss" bomb.

⁣⁣Ideally this is what happens:⁣

They are just as excited as you are, they are proud of you and encourage you to go after your dreams and will support you no matter what.

9 out of 10, this is not going to be their reaction.

⁣⁣But let's face it:⁣⁣

Instead they are shocked; wondering why the hell you would want to do that and maybe "you should try it some other time", telling you that your business idea is complete BS. And that you will have a lot more financial stability when you stay in your corporate job, or whatever that is that you do.⁣⁣

This can be pretty hurtful. And if you are a sensitive type of person (like me, btw. Where are my sensitive girls at?! ), you will start to convince yourself that yes "they are right. It is a dumb idea. Maybe I should just wait. Maybe I should stay in the corporate world."

HOWEVER, the reality is that they are NOT right and that you really shouldn’t give a f*ck about it.⁣⁣

They don't know any better, because they don't have the drive that you do. They don't have the courage that you have. They feel secure in THEIR corporate job, with their 9-5, five or sometimes even six days a week. They are perfectly fine in their own bubble. They probably don't even have the guts that you have.⁣⁣

So all I can say is:⁣

Don't listen to them.

Don't even argue with them. Just do your thing and once they see that you succeed they will change their mind.⁣⁣

Believe. ⁣⁣

What I have learned is that when you want to turn dreams into reality you have to believe.

Believe in YOURSELF. Believe in your DREAMS. Your GOALS.⁣⁣ YOU honestly just have to BELIEVE.

You have to ask yourself⁣⁣

"What can I do to get closer to my dream?" ⁣⁣

Once you figured that out you have to put in the work. And while doubt will creep in every now and then, all you really have to do is to believe and to remind yourself why you started this journey in the first place.

Believe, millenials, generation y,, genereation z

When you look at it, It's that simple.

BUT, the reality is that no one is going to do that for you.

YOU have to make things work.

YOU have to keep believing.

YOU have to keep going.

⁣⁣BELIEVE⁣⁣that whatever you do while working towards your dream will pay off. That however crazy your business idea is, you will succeed. That you will succeed either way.⁣when no one else will because trust me, there are people that won't believe in you and your dreams.⁣⁣⁣

But most importantly, you have to BELIEVE IN YOURSELF. ⁣I can't say this enough.

⁣You wanna know why? Because I am really good at not believing in myself. I KNOW what that feels like. But ever since my mind started to shift, believing is what keeps me motivated. ⁣⁣And if I can do it, you can do, too.⁣⁣

What do you do that keeps you motivated to keep going? Let me know. -, xo, Chantal⁣
