Are you focused on YOU or others?
In my journey as a mom, business owner, wife, and woman I have learned many lessons on what it takes to truly feel confident and empowered. That means something different to each one of us, but I want to tell you a truth that helps me as I stumble, learn, get back up again, and grow!
For me, the key ingredient to feeling truly empowered (so I can help others do the same) is focusing on ME. It took me two years to figure out the exact reason my business makes me feel so empowered. There are endless benefits to being an entrepreneur, but it was hard for me to put a finger on the heart of why it was so fantastic for me. While on a company trip to Banff, Canada it finally hit me. As I was surrounded by dozens of fellow friends lifting me up and in a beautiful setting, I realized it was because being a business owner has been the key to making me the best version of myself. THAT is a priceless gift! Now that I feel I’m becoming the best version of myself I can truly be all in for my family and friends and get rid of the distractions.
Do you ever feel like you are always looking away from what’s important because you are distracted by all the noise around you? Much of my 20s was spent focusing on everyone else but myself. Not because I wanted to, but because I felt so distracted and suffered from the comparison bug. This person is doing ____ and I’m not yet. That person has ____ and I don’t. That was KILLER for my growth! I wasted lots of time doing this and it took me away from my journey of finding what really works best for ME.
So—I encourage you to truly set your focus on YOUR journey. For me, empowerment is all about finding joy in the day-to-day and shifting the focus to what makes you the best version of you. I hope you can do the same!
