Okay ladies, I’m getting really real today. It’s not going to be the average bubbly message. Today’s message is going to hit you with the cold hard truth on why you’re struggling in creating confidence, waking up to your purpose, stressing out to the max, and not living the life that you want. Keep reading if you want to know why you’re not owning your life and why you should be.
You’re sitting there waiting for the right moment. You are watching all of these inspirational youtube videos or listening to the Tony Robbins podcast getting super inspired, and then, you’re not acting on that inspiration. You’re not the owner of your life right now and you need to be. You can spend your days idolizing all the celebrities, successful business owners, and boss babes but that will never be you if you don’t start owning your life.
When we lack confidence we feel sorry for ourselves. We say to ourselves, “I’m so not confident in myself and that’s why I’m not kicking butt at everything in my life!” We tell ourselves that we can’t do certain things. In a world where society is putting countless false beliefs in our minds on a daily basis, we need to break out our own beliefs. It’s time to take control. Here’s how.

Show up as the greatest you that you can be
You don’t have to fit a certain mold to live an amazingly abundant life. You don’t have to do what others are doing do be happy or successful or kick ass. The world needs YOU. Not you trying to be someone else. You see, YOU are super valuable. No matter what anyone tells you, the world need you to show up as yourself. Your truest self. Think you can do that? I mean, how cool is it to accept yourself for who you are and to have people fall in love with that you? Do everything with intentions of being uniquely you and you will begin to start owning your life, your decisions, and your happiness.
Okay, so we need to apologize when we are in the wrong if we say something completely rude, obviously. However, we don’t need to be apologizing for everything that we do. When I was in my early 20’s (a couple years ago.. I’ve learned a lot since then), I would apologize for everything. Even the little things. For example, if I told someone I couldn’t go to lunch with them, I would apologize incesently. In fact, I apologized so much for stupid stuff that didn’t even require an apologize that my boyfriend and family members would get super annoyed with me. “Why are you apologizing?,” they would ask.
I feel that I said sorry for every little thing because I needed some sort of acceptance or validation. I have since stopped apologizing for all the tiny things that don’t deserve an apology. I own it. I own my decisions. I recognize that I don’t need to be sorry for being myself.
Shoot for the stars
Guess what? Life is too short to settle for anything less than spectacular. Why do so many people live life incredibly unhappy? Yes, life can be very challenging at times, but, it is our choice how we respond to difficult situations. We need to constantly be discovering the greatest versions of ourselves, reaching for bigger and better things, creating happiness, and sharing that happiness with the world. Life is too short to simply “settle” for something because we don’t think we are good enough to shoot for the stars. Own your life by creating goals that are bigger than ourselves and then work everyday to reach those goals.
Ask for help
Owning your life does not mean you are alone in this world. It’s okay to ask for help. After all, team work makes the dream work, right? Maybe you need a friend to teach you how to become a better version of you. This doesn’t mean you have to be the person they want you to be. It helps to hear from someone else, their perspective of you. Asking for help can lend an amount of support that helps you build your life.
Part of owning your life is recognizing what is already in front of you and building on that. Be grateful for each and every moment in your life, for those moments create your fingerprint on this earth. Don’t forget to thank your lucky stars for the abundance that is life.
Now that you know why you are not owning your life and why you should be, I hope that you will go out and make change! You deserve the best of the best in life. Own it. Live it.
