Have you ever set a goal, reach that goal and then realised you weren’t dreaming big enough?
That was me when I wrote my first book. It was something I always wanted to do, but I didn’t know I’d actually do it. I massively underestimated myself, I didn’t know then what I was capable of.
I had goals and dreams that were laced with self-doubt and self-imposed barriers, wrapped up with a mindset that whispered “can’t” when I thought about them.
But I was curious to see what would happened if I tried, if I gave it a go, if I took action, made a change and moved forward on a path I was unfamiliar with. I knew it made no sense to convince others of what I needed to do, I just had to believe in myself.
And with time, over time, step by step, book by book, I’ve become a woman who still carries fear but is wrapped with confidence and self-belief. I have become a woman who dreams big, outlines the steps she needs to take and embarks on the journey without hesitation. I have become a woman who pushes herself beyond her expectations, recognising that there is greatness within and it has a purpose. I have become a woman who values her words, written and verbal, because she knows she has wisdom to share.
But more importantly, I have become a woman who knows her power, who recognises her purpose and who is committed to believing in her capabilities.
All it took was a little bit of trust in the woman I was destined to become because she was always leading the way.
