What will stop & support you?


  1. Odille Remmert on June 2, 2019 at 6:00 pm

    What could stop me:
    Feeling overwhelmed, and not sure what to do next.
    And feeling stuck with unable to come up with the language.
    Also, split-focus – with the avatar suddenly starting to look like a millennial instead of 40s/50s…

    What will support me:
    Continuing to reach out for help and ask for clarification.
    Continuing to go through the information here, and in the groups.
    Reading the responses to other members’ questions.
    Walking away when I first start to feel it’s not fun, and only coming back to it when I’m feeling excited again.
    Staying calm, stepping back, and breaking it down to bite-sized chunks, and going one step at a time.

    It looks like you have a clear plan when / if you hit any of those obstacles 😉 Great work!

    I get stuck in my imposter syndrome
    I struggle to ask for help

    I have more people in my life helping than I realised in so many different ways. I have been a ‘lone wolf’ in the past but no more!

      What a lovely realisation! Feeling supported and offering support to your network is a great culture to create around you in order to thrive 😉

    What stops me is myself. Not trusting that I can do this as long as I keep ploughing forwards. In the past I gave up on a lot of things because of my mindset and all the traumatic sh*t I went through, but in reality, I know I can help others. I have so much to offer. TRUST. TRUST. TRUST. I must want to TRUST MYSELF!

    I do get overwhelmed and that´s my emotions coming into play. It´s also when I know that I really need to look for the help, support or knowledge which is missing for me. Also, it´s about stepping back and taking time and to say, it´s alright to go at the speed I´m going.

    Perfectionism. I want to remember to let go when it´s done not perfect. I usually say to myself, what is perfect anyway, and I think it´s different for everyone.

    My avatar is holding me back and it frustrates me as I want it sorted. I was working on it again today and realised I was changing it to a version of me way back when I was in my 20´s!
    Finding the right language to use feels difficult – I´ve been trying to work out my avatar for a few years (on and off) lol.

    Stopping me is silver bauble syndrome. Every time I see someone new on FB I think, hmm, I wonder….

    As for support. I have ChangeMaker Central to be grateful too, especially as I get moments where I think, can I really afford this every month! But, I really committed 150% to this in the last week or so, when I realised I am just not doing enough. Thanks to both Helena and Kelly for their unwavering support. I hope to see this through to the end. I am just aware I would like to go faster because I´m not actually earning any money with this side of things yet!

    No more silver bauble syndrome – am getting better and better at saying no to random people popping up in my in box offering the same stuff just packaged differently.

    Reminding myself that I really do want to do this and succeed finally after all the setbacks in life I have had.

      Charmaine, we love this for you. That you are taking the ‘bull by the horns’ and not letting what’s stopped you in the past stop you any more. That moment when you commit to yourself just that little bit more; when you recognise that you really don’t need any more ‘same’ advise, when you realise you are in the right place, and you stay there for long enough to actually get traction and your thinking and experience starts to come together, that’s when you start to make the money, because you are standing still for long enough, with the right messaging for people to actually gravitate towards you.

      You’ve got this, and we’ve got you. (Helena & Kelly)
