This is my very first blog! It’s been a number of months since I started the process of working from home for myself and creating my online business. What a self journey I have been on so far. The truth is, I have had all the tools I needed to be up and running for ages but, although I love this new journey, until very recently I had been worrying too much about how I could make this a success.
I have now realised that always thinking about ‘how’ I could manage things in my life has held me back. The fear I had about how I could make it work overtook my faith in myself.
This is how I used to think – I’d wonder, “Have I bitten off more than I can chew?” I mean, I am bringing up 2 bairns on my own, I work part time so don’t have a full time income coming in to the household. The girls are growing all the time so always need new clothes. How can I pay for these clothes and everything else they need? I’ve agreed to go on a week’s holiday abroad this year with my friends and all the bairns and flights have to be paid soon. How can I find the money to pay for the flights? My car needs MOT’d. How much is that going to cost? My cooker is not working properly. How can I afford a new cooker right now? And to add to all of this, I have started my own online business but as yet can’t afford to pay for advertising. How can I make this business a success? “AAAAAHHHHH! FFS!” Do you follow me?
What I am trying to do now is stop thinking “How” I will be able afford all of this. I’m wasting my time and energy on “How” and it’s not sending out the right vibes and signals to the universe. Isn’t it true that if we want something so much and take the right steps when we see an opportunity, then anything is achievable? I have to believe that I can make it happen and only focus on the end result. Forget about the in between stuff and how I will get there. The getting there will all fall in to place if I believe in myself.
“How” is not the first question I should be asking myself. If I concentrated more on “Why” I want to change my lifestyle and enjoy having my own business, I will then keep my focus on the journey ahead.
The next thing I should be asking myself is “What” do I want? A vey high income working for myself, a better lifestyle and so on.
Then “Who” can make this happen? Yes it’s obviously me that can make this happen but I feel that with the help of the mentors I found when I started this new journey, I am not alone so I can get guidance from others to help me.

Then finally the “How” you create a better income and better lifestyle will all come together.
This is a more constructive thinking cycle. I plan to stick to this way of thinking more often and focus my thoughts and energy on the end results.
