What is holding you back? Get started already!

What is holding you back? Get started and do it already!

Get started and do it already!

I was debating whether I should go live here or not, because it’s scary. I’m talking to my phone held out in front of me along the riverwalk and people are walking by.

I thought, you know what? This prevents people too front getting started; they just have fear and a bunch of negative self-talk going through their heads. I thought okay, if I’m going to tell people to start getting started with things and they might be afraid of it, why don’t I just go ahead and do this. There may be people walking by looking at me funny because I’m holding my phone out in front of me literally on the riverwalk that is open to the public where people are walking by.

Sometimes we just need to get started and that’s the hardest thing for some people. It’s hard for me to push LIVE, it’s hard to push the button to go live and start talking to you. Sometimes you just have to do it and find out what happens.

I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to talk about today, but sometimes you just have to DO it. Sometimes you just have to get started to get out of your comfort zone and you’ll figure it out along the way.

Right? I’m figuring it out while I’m here talking to you. I’m standing here live, putting myself out their and it’s scary I’m not going to say it’s easy.

But I started and I pushed start and I went for it.

Sometimes you just have to go for it. Go for it, do it, start it. Continue and don’t stop.

If you start and continue and you are consistent you’ll get better and better and will become more of a habit.

I’m close to rolling out Make Healthy Habits Stick program. I’m sure you are wondering, “what is it?” It’s an online program that you can take like a college course that you can take in your own home on your own time to help you get started with health habits.

It seems that people have a hard time getting started. So go out of your comfort zone and go do something today. Just do it, just do it and go.

Stop doubting yourself: Push past barriers

Put doubts aside. Stop questioning everything you are doing and keep moving forward.

Are you a doubter?

Do you doubt everything? do you doubt everybody? Do you doubt that I’m speaking to you about some inpriations goals and needs and information? Do you always doubt people? Do you doubt yourself?

I’m not talking about being pessimistic. I’ll tell you today, I was working on projects and I doubted that I could get them finished. It was hard to move forward because I was working on something that was tedious, and I didn’t want keep continuing I wanted to quit. I was doubting myself that I could actually finish.

I feel some people grow up that way, that parents don’t think that their child isn’t going to complete something so the parent will do it for them. They are doubting the fact that their child or themselves can actually complete something or do it or finish it.

So are you a doubter? Do you doubt other people? Do you think you can’t complete something?

Have you tried to do something in the past that you haven’t been able to complete so you jump to the next thing? You doubt you can finish it. You don’t believe in your mind, in your capabilities, that you can finish the project you were working on. It seems like a lot of the times we have a hard time moving forward with some challenges.

In the last three years, I’ve been challenged numerous times with my current job. I love that I’m able to continue to grow, but there are challenges with that. You doubt in your mind if you can keep going.

Today I was getting frustrated and questioned and doubted if I could finish the project. Am I doing the right thing?

Are you a doubter? Do you doubt your self with some things that you want to accomplish, but never get started because you are not quite sure if you want to continue? You are not quite sure it’s going to work for you. Or you get started and you realize it’s not for you.

I’ve worked with people with health and fitness where about the third day they give up. Because it’s not working and it’s making them feel terrible. I’ll tell you within the third day of a new eating plan there are a lot of changes going on with your system. The third day and fourth day are some of the hardest days.

I feel that with some projects that I work on, could be work and could be family related, it seems like it goes in threes. That third day is so hard. But once you get past it you can maintain something for a lot longer period of time if you are able to consistent with it. So don’t doubt that you can’t complete something. If some things change and it’s not quite the way you want it to be, you can tweak it along the way but don’t doubt the fact that in that short period of time it’s not working for you.

So don’t be a doubter any more. I’m going to tell myself to quit being a doubter as well and make sure that I can continue on with different projects I’m working on and trudge through it. Sometimes it’s that little tedious work and you want to quit and you don’t want to do it anymore, but once you get past it you are so proud of yourself and you’ve really made an accomplishment.

Put doubts aside. Stop being a doubter. Stop questioning everything that you are doing and keep moving forward.

What would you tell your 22-year-old self?

What would you tell your 22 year old self?

I'm here to share with you what I would tell my 22 year old self. View my video over on Facebook: Renee Hansen Coaching or click below to view video.

I'm Renee Hansen, I'm a wife, a mom of 3 kids with very busy full-throttle schedules, i work full-time outside the home and I hvae very little time to myself and I have figured out some ways to help organize my schedule.

What would you tell yourself that you know now, that you wish you knew then?

Fitness & Nutrition:
I would tell myself first to focus on your fitness. Keep it up, you love it, it helps your stress. But, when you turn 32 and 37 you are going to need to focus on your nutrition. People keep telling you about nutrition and you wish you wouldn't have known more about nutrition when you were having some stomach problems.

Get Your Schedule Organized:
Next, if you think you are busy now, HA! you will get even more busy with three kids in multiple activities, just wait. You will need to figure out ways to manage your time, because you are going to get more busy.

Face Your Fears:
Face your fears! Don't worry about what others think about you. I still worry about what people think of me. But STOP thinking about what others think about you. Face Your fears and face your dreams.

Practice your fears. Like right now! I'm on LIVE video! I have all these ideas in my head that I want to share with people and get out and share with people. So, face your fears so you can look back on your life and feel accomplished and successful. You will look back and think. Ahhh I did THAT!!!

Focus on Your Strengths:
Focus on your strengths. It seems that all job interviews you go to ask you about your strengths and weaknesses. And even in your performance reviews, people will ask you and tell you what you need to work on. Well, why can't we just focus on our strengths and focus on the things that we are really good at even better?  That's what I'm trying to do here. Is to continue to do things better and those things that I do well, I want to share those ideas with you, so you can get past YOUR barriers that you are stuck with.

I was recently stuck, especially with my schedule and my busy daily life. I was STRESSED out. I even lost my hair during the holidays becuase we were so busy with life, travel, work and holiday events. I needed to figure out a way to plan my day. If I would've told my 22 year old self that I would be this stressed out this many years later. I would've told myself to figure it out sooner!

In fact, I remember being 14, standing in my kitchen stressing and being overwhelmed about dance team practice, track practice, a math test, homework and other projects. I was so overwhelmed!

I'm curious if you will do this challenge too! What would YOU tell your 22 year old self. Post in the comments below or post on your social media. 

Follow Your Dreams:
Lastly - keep following your dreams and passions and you will look back on your happy and successful life.
