Hype medias

I’ve just recorded my 100TH podcast episode 😃 Wow... can’t believe I’ve made it to 100 😲 And one of the thoughts that came up for me (and after a PM I got asking something about this) Is that understanding that you look BACK to see how far you’ve came... Be PRESENT so you know where you’re at And look FORWARD so you know what direction you’re going down and whether that’s right Your past CANT change your future Your PRESENT changes your future And you look ahead so you see if it’s the future you WANT PS 100th episode drops on SUNDAY!! 😃

Hard to agree with... but that doesn’t change the fact it’s true 😊

You never know what’s going on inside someone’s head ... you have to accept that not everyone thinks the same way as you

You show how committed and willing you are by the ACTIONS you take Words help Thoughts help Feelings help But they’re all there to help you TAKE ACTION on your business Despite the naysayers Despite the possible failure Or what could happen if you succeed Despite the HORROR STORIES that you tell yourself... YOU ACT!! THAT is strength THAT is commitment Acting in the FACE OF adversity is what committed people do Tag someone that’s committed to their business!

... one step closer to what you want! Just make sure it’s in the right direction 😃

Are you sabotaging your efforts? It’s crazy to think that sometimes we don’t realise it until it’s too late that you’re stopping yourself ON PURPOSE Do you do it? No judgement from me; but just remember that when you decide to go ALL IN on your business That you might be sabotaging your efforts and you may be your OWN worst enemy!

Your ACTIONS tell you more than you realise!

You have to THINK of yourself as a leader to ACT like one Not pretend ... now fake it until you make it But the leaders of the world THOUGHT they were before they became one

Some of my darkest days have given me the light I’ve needed to move forwards Change. Grow. Adapt. Move on Focus on solutions and they’ll show themselves to you

Your seriousness shows! How would you ACT if you were thinking, feeling and saying certain things. You’ve got this backwards ... ACT AS IF... and you’ll feel that way

I am no longer chained by my past I am no longer chained by my thoughts I am no longer held back I am limitless and so are you!

BEING is believing Because you ACT as if you are already that person Think... how else are you going to BE who you want to be? Other than thinking, feeling and acting like them? It’ll feel odd at first Awkward You’ll question it ... until you don’t And you eventually become that person THEN your business takes off! 😃😃

There’s always a DECISION that makes all the DIFFERENCE between “going all in” or not One moment is all it takes... do you go for it or not?? Once you decide... get over the mental hurdle... you need to COMMIT to make it happen! 😊

Fearing the unknown STOPS you from finding out... which then CONFIRMS your fear and making it MORE likely that you wont act This cycle will keep going until you BREAK IT... and you break it through TAKING ACTION!

Do you ever feel like there’s something missing? You’re going through the motions with your job and your business and you feel like there MUST be more then this? 👉There must be more right? Y’see, you can feel like there’s no meaning to your work IF you just wander through your day, sleep, wake up, then going at it again When you feel like there’s something missing you lose motivation ... meaning “What’s the point” starts to play around in your mind and you stop wanting to get out of bed in the morning - ... that’s not true is it? Not completely Because you’re working You’re running your business on the side So you have a reason to get out of bed even IF you don’t feel it in the moment But you’re SETTLING for less Why? Because things are going “ok” You have the safety of the job You have the ability to run your business too But ... You feel just... Empty Like you’re given a “role” to play in your life 👉Your life isn’t yours You at the point where you’re observing yourself going about your day And you’re numb... - But you’re NOT “normal” are you? You don’t REALLY want to stay in your job Despite the safety Despite the income You want more The job isn’t “you” But the only way to REALLY go for it is to GO FOR IT Crazy things happen when you take charge and PROACTIVELY chase the vision you have for your business So let this be your moment to GO And DO If you’re destined for more Then you have to TAKE it It can’t be given 😊

Tag a risk taker! You may have to take risks to get what to get what you want 👍

Worried you’re not quite living up to your potential? Until you realise that being safe ISNT the same as being fulfilled ... you won’t commit to living how you want You started your business ... your side hustle... to give you a taste of what entrepreneurship is But don’t discount the fact that the job could be the “golden handcuffs” that stop you from really feeling the freedom I get it ... the regular pay-check is definitely a plus of a job... until you realise that a business CAN give you that to AND you can feel amazing about how you spend your time 😃

Saturday reminder that you may have to LEAP first Then figure it out Become the person that can handle it Jump and build the plane Leap and figure it out Yesterday I had a business branding photoshoot Did I want to at the time? Likely no 🙈 But the person I want to be is the kind of person that has photo shoots and speaks around the world and hosts amazing events online and offline that change the lives of entrepreneurs! So... naturally ... I went through it Fixed my crown ‘n’ all that 😃 Because ... leaping first might be what it takes for YOU to actually achieve it If you spend too long inside your own head FEAR can win And you don’t want that Leap and figure it out 😊👍

FIRST OF THE MONTH! 😃 Sometimes the 1st is a time to assess and IMPROVE on the previous month Remember that there isn’t long until 2020 FEAR doesn’t want you to change FEAR doesn’t want you to win But do you?

Are you settings the bar too low due to fear of failure? Creating an EASIER life just in case you fail... isn’t what it’s all about Why set a challenge ... that isn’t challenging? It’s hard no matter what... so you might as well chase something WORTH chasing . . . . #entrepreneurlifestyle #entrepreneurmindset #femaleentrepreneurs #justdoit #bossbabe #businessowners #startuplife #beingboss #digitalbusiness #youngentrepreneurs #businesssuccess #entrepreneurgoals #youngentrepreneur #productivitytips #entrepreneurlife #productivity #onlinebusiness #businessownerlife #businesslife #businesstravel #businesstravellife #quote #quotestoliveby #quotes #quotestoinspire

Every time I up-level myself & my business My worry kicks off My fear My stories Can I do it? Can I make it happen? Y’see, the START is always hard The start of ANY new level is tough The more I grow I actually understand the process and see that I CAN actually get through it and push through But... The first time I did this was the HARDEST Venturing into the unknown IS HARD That’s business That’s entrepreneurship If you’re in this place Reading this The hardship IS the journey of someone that’s growing and stretching themselves . . . . #entrepreneurlifestyle #entrepreneurmindset #femaleentrepreneurs #justdoit #bossbabe #businessowners #startuplife #beingboss #digitalbusiness #youngentrepreneurs #businesssuccess #entrepreneurgoals #youngentrepreneur #productivitytips #entrepreneurlife #productivity #onlinebusiness #businessownerlife #businesslife #businesstravel #businesstravellife #quote #quotestoliveby #quotes #quotestoinspire

YES!

What’s left after your excuses? After you’ve told yourself you’re not good enough or that it’ll never work If you get past that Realise your excuses aren’t really true What then? Well... you have to ACT You can’t do nothing and expect to achieve the success you want 😃 . . . . #entrepreneurlifestyle #entrepreneurmindset #femaleentrepreneurs #justdoit #bossbabe #businessowners #startuplife #beingboss #digitalbusiness #youngentrepreneurs #businesssuccess #entrepreneurgoals #youngentrepreneur #productivitytips #entrepreneurlife #productivity #onlinebusiness #businessownerlife #businesslife #businesstravel #businesstravellife #quote #quotestoliveby #quotes #quotestoinspire

The problem with high expectations is you might just MEET THEM and then what? They say the key to happiness is low expectations But the thing is .... That also breeds contentment, boredom and a lack of meaning/fulfilment A part of being happy is making PROGRESS too! So what would you rather have? . . . . #entrepreneurlifestyle #entrepreneurmindset #femaleentrepreneurs #justdoit #bossbabe #businessowners #startuplife #beingboss #digitalbusiness #youngentrepreneurs #businesssuccess #entrepreneurgoals #youngentrepreneur #productivitytips #entrepreneurlife #productivity #onlinebusiness #businessownerlife #businesslife #businesstravel #businesstravellife #quote #quotestoliveby #quotes #quotestoinspire

Getting a lot done For “getting a lot done’s” sake Isn’t a badge of honour But I’ve seen it time and time again “I work 18hours a day!” “Oh yeah?..: well I work 19” 🙈🤷‍♂️🤣 And in a world where @garyvee (that people relate to “hustle”) has started talking more about WORK vs hustle and actually openly talks about it being what you do when you’re awake VS hours “supposedly” working. And @timferriss states that his book “the four hour work week” ISNT about working 4 hours a week on a beach loving life while the money rolls in... but it’s about effectiveness and efficiency of the time you DO spend... and how to maximise that. And my podcast “Business on the beach” ISNT actually about how to do that... it’s about how to have a business you want AND the life you want... how to have it ALL - Now don’t get me wrong, working A LOT is actually needed An hour of the RIGHT actions Or THREE hours of the RIGHT actions 👉 3 will win, right? But using busy as a badge of honour is JUST as painful to me as people that also don’t like to work and use people like me or Tim as justification for working 20mins and thinking that’s enough .... When they have “ambitions” 🤷‍♂️🙈 Do what works Do what’s right Take care of what’s important Then grow from there — Gary talks about not having HIS work life balance or HIS work ethic And a start up entrepreneur going flat out for 16-18 hours a day is a fast track to burn out UNLESS they have adapted to stress well and can perform under pressure. You NEED to do what works for YOU And feel OK with that without comparing you to entrepreneurs that have been in the “game” for years And are likely at a SCALED UP version of effective... and efficient tasks that work for THEIR business too. Then there’s the whole TRUSTING that your way actually works too Which needs it’s own post I think 😃 . . . . #entrepreneurlifestyle #entrepreneurmindset #femaleentrepreneurs #justdoit #bossbabe #businessowners #startuplife #beingboss #digitalbusiness #youngentrepreneurs #businesssuccess #entrepreneurgoals #youngentrepreneur #productivitytips #entrepreneurlife #Productivit

You can be motivated Positive In the right frame of mind To take your business to the stars The thing to consider is that things also have a PROCESS or a “way of doing the damned thing” Results have steps and actions to get there If we could be positive and think things into exsistance We’d all have exactly what we wanted 🤣 but we’d get bored eventually 🙈😂 Sorry... off track 🙊 .... If you SAY you’re motivated But look at the PROCESS of growing your business and think “Na not for me” There’s a conflict there and I’d argue there’s something missing I’ve not said this for a while but ... Actions SPEAK louder than words 😃 . . . . #entrepreneurlifestyle #entrepreneurmindset #femaleentrepreneurs #justdoit #bossbabe #businessowners #startuplife #beingboss #digitalbusiness #youngentrepreneurs #businesssuccess #entrepreneurgoals #youngentrepreneur #productivitytips #entrepreneurlife #productivity #onlinebusiness #businessownerlife #businesslife #businesstravel #businesstravellife

It’s crazy when you realise that YOU can actually change your future It allows you to see the WAY to make it happen But it starts with the belief first otherwise you “just don’t see it” . . . . #entrepreneurlifestyle #entrepreneurmindset #femaleentrepreneurs #justdoit #bossbabe #businessowners #startuplife #beingboss #digitalbusiness #youngentrepreneurs #businesssuccess #entrepreneurgoals #youngentrepreneur #productivitytips #entrepreneurlife #productivity #onlinebusiness #businessownerlife #businesslife #businesstravel #businesstravellife
