76: Do You Want To Work in a New Way? Lessons I'm Learning From Coronavirus

Long before the Coronavirus happened, I was feeling a lot of pressure to "keep up" with what everyone was doing on social media. It seemed like every Influencer or Entrepreneur I followed was coming out with a new book, a new digital course, a new collection, a new journal, a new podcast/blog post, or new "something" every. single. day. These people felt like super humans that can get it all done and make time for dinner with their families too. Like how do they do it all?! Now I get that on social media we only see one side of things, but I couldn't help and feel like everyone was working a million miles a minute and constantly promoting some form of product at ALL times. For a long time now, I just felt like as a society we were way to wrapped up in more, more, MORE. And as a solopreneur myself, I felt like I couldn't keep up and struggled with feeling inadequate. Then Coronavirus happened. And it happened FAST. And suddenly we have all been forced to SLOW DOWN. Now I hate what is happening with this virus. I hate how many people are sick or worst, have passed away. I hate how many people are struggling financially. It's devastating. But the silver lining in all of this is that we have all been forced to take a breath, slow down, and realign with what matters most. It's like this time is a "reset" for the world. And now we can ask ourselves, Is there a better way we can work and exist as humans from here on out? The hustle and grind isn't in our nature, that is why we eventually burn out. I have done it many times. Today in the podcast I have a raw and open conversation with you about my thoughts on work, how I want to work going forward and discuss why we even overwork to begin with. I also discuss how we can ditch the hustle and work from an aligned place with more peace and less anxiety. I don't have all the answers. I wish I did. But I want to discuss with you today how we can maybe work in a new and better way going forward. Today's show is more of an open ended conversation but my hope is that it will spark some inspiration for you and your work/life balance. Tune in below and reach out to me on instagram @whattheeffpodcast and let me know your thoughts. I would really love to know your opinion after hearing my thoughts on work in today's show.

75: 8 to Great, The Morning Routine You've Been Looking For

If you listen to my podcast regularly then you know how important my morning routine is to me. I'm a HUGE believer on the power of a positive mindset. So every morning I do what I call "prime my mind" to set me up to be more positive, happier and feeling like I can tackle any goal (cause I can, and so can you!). Priming my mind is the time I take to feel EMPOWERED! This time is sacred to me and I rarely miss it, because truly, taking the time to nurture my mind, and connect with myself and my goals has changed my life for the better. I am more optimistic and lighter from it, but more than that, I experience life with more ease and grace. Things unfold and manifest for me naturally, simply because I believe they will. Never underestimate the power of your thoughts! They really do shape your reality. Which is exactly why I check in with my thoughts every morning and make sure they match what I want my life to be. And if they don't, I change them. We truly are the creators of our reality. If you're interested in hearing me speak more to "Priming" then go back and listen to Episode 31 and Episode 32 of this podcast where I explain it more in detail. Now the timing of this episode coming out seems perfect. It wasn't originally planned to release today but I am so glad it is because with everything going on in the world, we need positivity now more than ever. A lot of listeners of my show want to get started with creating their own morning Priming routine, but feel stuck cause they don't know where to begin. A few weeks ago I made a worksheet called "8 to Great" to help you with just that! This worksheet, 8 to Great, will help you get started with the morning routine you've been looking for! No more wondering what to do when it comes to Priming, this worksheet will hold your hand as you begin the habit of doing it each morning. In today's episode I break down each of the 8 steps. It's called 8 to Great because there are 8 writing prompts that will lead you to a great day, everyday. We need this now more than ever. It's so easy to cave into the negativity and fear others are offering with the spread of this virus. We can fight this virus by thinking more positively, by working on our mindset and thinking thoughts of health and healing for all. We can use this time to think of creative possibilities that can come from us all having to slow down at home. My hope even before this virus outbreak was that 8 to Great would comfort and strengthen you to believe in your power that is already within you. And now more than ever, my hope is that 8 to Great will comfort you each and every morning through this trying time as a society. We need you. We need your positivity. We need your healing thoughts, we need your light. Use this to help you every morning do just that. I appreciate you and thank you for making the effort to be a light in this world, truly I mean that. Let's visualize healing, let's think positive thoughts, let's pray for everyone. WE CAN DO THIS! You do not have to slow down on your dreams just cause you are at home. It's the opposite in fact because we've all been given the gift of time! Let's use it and get creative! What good can come from this time of you being at home? What project can you finally start? I hope 8 to Great will help you along your journey. Tune in be

74: How I’m Working on Feeling Worthy (Plus a Life Update)

In today’s show I wrap up last month’s theme of self worth by talking about how I’m working on showing myself I’m worthy of good things - both small and big. Recently I started a new job/career path in Interior Design and it has helped me reconnect to my self worth by simply getting ready every morning. Sounds silly I know, but the simple act of taking the time to put myself together every morning has caused this big, positive, ripple effect in my life to show up for myself in other ways too. It's really amazing how some simple things, such as taking the time to get ready in the morning, make you feel so good and remind you that you're worthy of time and energy. My new self-worth practices go beyond just getting ready, and I share them with you all in today's show. They are simple, but powerful and important. Taking this new job has helped open me up to taking better care of myself again and in turn it is helping me feel less stressed, more centered and happier than ever. My hope is that something I've been learning or reconnecting with will help you to feel worthy of all good things! Cause we are worthy of the BEST!! I also share the two books I'm currently reading and HIGHLY recommend! They are both re-energizing me right now and reminding me of my own self worth. Today we’re going to chat, friend to friend, about how we can show ourselves more love, respect and feel more worthy of good things. This episode is here to help you know and show yourself you’re worthy! Take the time to get ready, buy yourself the flowers, go for that walk, drink the water, journal and take yourself on a date once a week. Show yourself you're worthy first and the rest will unfold. I’m learning it’s not all about building my business, I have to love myself and actually enjoy my life! I can’t tell you how much happier I have been these past few weeks since starting my new job and showing up for myself more. I hope something here helps you today reconnect to your worthiness.

73: Starting Before You're Ready with Lauren Taylor

Artist and Business Owner, Lauren Taylor of Lauren Taylor Creates and LTCreative Tours, is here with us on the podcast today discussing the importance of just getting started before you're ready. It's one of my favorite episodes to date! Lauren's own entrepreneur journey is so inspiring and she shares helpful and actionable steps for us all to take to get momentum going on our visions and dreams. The truth is we all feel fear at times when it comes to our dreams. We can doubt ourselves and wonder if we can even do it. We might think we're too late to the game to get started, or think we can't do it because someone else already is. But Lauren helps crush these fears and teaches us how to feel the fear but still get started anyway! Some of my favorite takeaways from Lauren are: Her advice to do a "brain dump" and how this helps free up space in our minds and gives us clarity on our next best step A reminder to not compare yourself to others, especially when they might be 10 years further along in their career than you. Just focus on you. Make deadlines for yourself so you'll actually get going and feel accountable. Tell people about your new venture to make it feel more real, and again, help you be more accountable! No one is special when it comes to starting a business, anyone can really do it. It comes down to your drive and moving through your fear and pursuing it. And much more! One of my favorite things Lauren reminds us of in today's episode is that time will pass whether you go for it or not. You will be 5 years older 5 years from now regardless if you tried or not. So why not just try? It's never too late to start something new. Lauren is a great example of someone who has always trusted her intuition and gone for it in her life. Her story is truly motivating and I can't wait for you to meet her today on the show and leave feeling inspired! She's a total sweetheart and you're going to love her! Tune in below to meet Lauren and get help getting started on your dreams! Also, be sure to check out her amazing tour of Ireland with her company LTCreative Tours happening this May 19-26th. We talk all about it in today's show and it's a great trip to take to feel inspired and get started on your next project. You can learn more about it here! I can't wait for you to meet Lauren!

72: 12 Things I Would Tell My 21 Year Old Self

If you could go back in time and visit yourself 10 years younger than you are today, what would you tell yourself? It's an interesting question isn't it?! Imagine it though, if you could give your younger self a cheat sheet of all the major life lessons that you've learned over the past 10 years, the good and bad, to help you out, what would you say? I actually was asked this question from a listener when I asked for show topic ideas on Instagram (you can follow me @whattheeffpodcast and @taylormorgandesign). And it really got me thinking, what would I tell my younger self? What have been my biggest takeaways and ah-ha moments over the last 10 years? Now I can't go back in time, but I can still share the lessons I would tell my younger self with you in hopes that something can help you on your journey. We can all learn from each other, and I think no matter our age or what stage of life we are in, we can learn something helpful from everyone. I hope that something I've had to learn the hard way can help you out on your journey, and hopefully save you some time! And if you have any big life lessons you want to share with me, please share! I always love learning from others too! Lastly, I have to point out another inspiration for today's podcast episode, my younger sister, Avery. She is graduating high school this year and I really thought of her as I was making this list. Aww what I would give to have an older sister to give me guidance at 18 haha! I can't tell my younger self these lessons, but I certainly can her. And hopefully she will listen! #teenagers I jump right into my list of 12 things in today's episode. Click below to tune in and hear each tip in detail. We can't go back in time, but we can learn from our past and make a better today now. Whatever it is that is on your heart to do, do it now. It's never too late, and 10 year older you in the future will thank current you for starting today! Do it for you! You deserve all the best!

71: Am I Enough? How to Feel Worthy of Good Things

Download your copy of "8 to Great" here! The Morning Priming routine you've been looking for! Recently I polled people on What The Eff's Instagram and asked them what they wanted to hear on the show and what they needed help with. It was overwhelming how many people responded with different variations of not feeling good enough, or worthy enough, or not "something" enough. Some people don't feel good enough for the job they want, or even the job they already have! They feel like a fake who is going to be called out for not fully knowing what they're doing. Others don't feel worthy of a romantic relationship that they long for. And some have all the good things happening in their life, but they don't feel deserving of it and or worry it won't last. The list goes on and on. But no matter the fear or worry someone has, the underlining theme here is we all struggle with not feeling "enough." We struggle with not fully understanding our own worth as a person. This is a problem, a root problem actually, because all of our experiences in life start with us and our belief system. In life, we can only experience what we believe to be true. Another name for this is the Law of Attraction. If we don't feel worthy enough for good things in life, then life will keep reflecting back situations that reinforce that belief system. It's the law. (If you want to learn more about Law of Attraction, then I recommend googling Abraham Hicks and Law of Attraction - Abraham explains it best). But the great news is, we can change it. We can change anything in our life by changing our thoughts and feelings. It takes work, but it's very doable. And when we start believing in better things for ourselves, and we start believing we're worthy human beings, then more good things start showing up for us, one after another! It's truly amazing (and so much fun)! Recently I've struggled a lot with my own self worth as I've been closing my fashion company down that I ran for 5 years. I had wrapped so much of my worth and identity in my company, without even realizing it until it was gone. When the company failed, I felt like I failed. I felt worthless at times for not figuring it out and making it happen. Now quick side note, I don't actually believe in failure. I know better to know everything is a learning experience and I grew so much from doing all of it. But being the type A personality that I am, I still struggled with feeling worthless. Needless to say, the past 7 months have been the hardest of my life for me emotionally. But they also have been a beautiful reminder of how important it is for me to know my worth. I've had to really lean into learning my worthiness and understanding it isn't tied to any job title, relationship or situation in life. My worth is just me. And that's enough. I don't have to do anything to earn my worth. It's been hard to accept that I'm enough for just being Taylor. But I've been able to develop a new more loving relationship with myself and I'm feeling more grounded and better than ever. I've learned that sometimes things don't work out in life, and that's okay. And that it isn't a reflection on my worthiness as a person. While the past 7 months have been hard for me, I'm happy to report I'm coming out on the other side. I see the big BRIGHT light at the end of the tunnel! And having gone through this struggle, I can share with you the 5 t

70: Learning to Rebuild

There have been many changes through out my life, and with those changes I've sometimes needed to completely rebuild things. Sometimes from the ground up. When you're in a rebuilding phase of life it doesn't always feel the greatest. But I want you to know you're not alone in needing to rebuild. We all have been there. Heck, I'm currently rebuilding my career and finances right now as we speak. There is no shame in rebuilding. Rebuilding is our chance to make our life the way we truly want, how exciting is that?! We can always start again and it's never too late to have the life you've always wanted. As I mentioned, I'm currently in a season of rebuilding as I am shifting my career from Fashion Designer to Influencer and focusing on paying off all my student loans. Going through all this, I've been self reflecting on the other times I've needed to rebuild things in my life. After reflecting on it, I noticed there are 4 common stages of rebuilding I always go through. And today I want to share those with you in hopes these stages will help you too. I think each stage is equally important and necessary to actually rebuild things and move towards a better tomorrow. In today's episode I break down each of the 4 stages of rebuilding, which are: Grief Acceptance Getting Organized Making a Plan I explain each stage in today's episode so be sure to click below to tune in now. No matter what you're going through in your life, you can always rebuild. We're humans, we will make mistakes or fall short at times, but it's okay. We can always improve. At least we're out there in the world trying. I'd rather be out there trying and failing than not trying at all. I share this quote from Teddy Roosevelt in the episode but I will leave it here with you too cause it's so good: "It's not the critique who counts. It's not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done it better. The credit belongs to the person who is actually in the arena. Who's face is marred with blood and sweat and dust. Who at the best in the end knows the triumph of high achievement and who at worst, if he fails, he fails daring greatly."

76: Do You Want To Work in a New Way? Lessons I'm Learning From Coronavirus

Long before the Coronavirus happened, I was feeling a lot of pressure to "keep up" with what everyone was doing on social media. It seemed like every Influencer or Entrepreneur I followed was coming out with a new book, a new digital course, a new collection, a new journal, a new podcast/blog post, or new "something" every. single. day. These people felt like super humans that can get it all done and make time for dinner with their families too. Like how do they do it all?! Now I get that on social media we only see one side of things, but I couldn't help and feel like everyone was working a million miles a minute and constantly promoting some form of product at ALL times. For a long time now, I just felt like as a society we were way to wrapped up in more, more, MORE. And as a solopreneur myself, I felt like I couldn't keep up and struggled with feeling inadequate. Then Coronavirus happened. And it happened FAST. And suddenly we have all been forced to SLOW DOWN. Now I hate what is happening with this virus. I hate how many people are sick or worst, have passed away. I hate how many people are struggling financially. It's devastating. But the silver lining in all of this is that we have all been forced to take a breath, slow down, and realign with what matters most. It's like this time is a "reset" for the world. And now we can ask ourselves, Is there a better way we can work and exist as humans from here on out? The hustle and grind isn't in our nature, that is why we eventually burn out. I have done it many times. Today in the podcast I have a raw and open conversation with you about my thoughts on work, how I want to work going forward and discuss why we even overwork to begin with. I also discuss how we can ditch the hustle and work from an aligned place with more peace and less anxiety. I don't have all the answers. I wish I did.

75: 8 to Great, The Morning Routine You've Been Looking For

If you listen to my podcast regularly then you know how important my morning routine is to me. I'm a HUGE believer on the power of a positive mindset. So every morning I do what I call "prime my mind" to set me up to be more positive, happier and feeling like I can tackle any goal (cause I can, and so can you!). Priming my mind is the time I take to feel EMPOWERED! This time is sacred to me and I rarely miss it, because truly, taking the time to nurture my mind, and connect with myself and my goals has changed my life for the better. I am more optimistic and lighter from it, but more than that, I experience life with more ease and grace. Things unfold and manifest for me naturally, simply because I believe they will. Never underestimate the power of your thoughts! They really do shape your reality. Which is exactly why I check in with my thoughts every morning and make sure they match what I want my life to be. And if they don't, I change them. We truly are the creators of our reality. If you're interested in hearing me speak more to "Priming" then go back and listen to Episode 31 and Episode 32 of this podcast where I explain it more in detail. Now the timing of this episode coming out seems perfect. It wasn't originally planned to release today but I am so glad it is because with everything going on in the world, we need positivity now more than ever. A lot of listeners of my show want to get started with creating their own morning Priming routine, but feel stuck cause they don't know where to begin. A few weeks ago I made a worksheet called "8 to Great" to help you with just that! This worksheet, 8 to Great, will help you get started with the morning routine you've been looking for! No more wondering what to do when it comes to Priming, this worksheet will hold your hand as you begin the habit of doing it each morning. In today's episode I break down each of the 8 steps. It's called 8 to Great because there are 8 writing prompts that will lead you to a great day, everyday. We need this now more than ever. It's so easy to cave into the negativity and fear others are offering with the spread of this virus. We can fight this virus by thinking more positively, by working on our mindset and thinking thoughts of health and healing for all. We can use this time to think of creative possibilities that can come from us all having to slow down at home. My hope even before this virus outbreak was that 8 to Great would comfort and strengthen you to believe in your power that is already within you. And now more than ever, my hope is that 8 to Great will comfort you each and every morning through this trying time as a society. We need you. We need your positivity. We need your healing thoughts, we need your light. Use this to help you every morning do just that. I appreciate you and thank you for making the effort to be a light in this world, truly I mean that. Let's visualize healing, let's think positive thoughts, let's pray for everyone. WE CAN DO THIS! You do not have to slow down on your dreams just cause you are at home. It's the opposite in fact because we've all been given the gift of time! Let's use it and get creative! What good can come from this time of you being at home? What project can you finally start? I hope 8 to Great will help you along your journey. Tune in be

74: How I’m Working on Feeling Worthy (Plus a Life Update)

In today’s show I wrap up last month’s theme of self worth by talking about how I’m working on showing myself I’m worthy of good things - both small and big. Recently I started a new job/career path in Interior Design and it has helped me reconnect to my self worth by simply getting ready every morning. Sounds silly I know, but the simple act of taking the time to put myself together every morning has caused this big, positive, ripple effect in my life to show up for myself in other ways too. It's really amazing how some simple things, such as taking the time to get ready in the morning, make you feel so good and remind you that you're worthy of time and energy. My new self-worth practices go beyond just getting ready, and I share them with you all in today's show. They are simple, but powerful and important. Taking this new job has helped open me up to taking better care of myself again and in turn it is helping me feel less stressed, more centered and happier than ever. My hope is that something I've been learning or reconnecting with will help you to feel worthy of all good things! Cause we are worthy of the BEST!! I also share the two books I'm currently reading and HIGHLY recommend! They are both re-energizing me right now and reminding me of my own self worth. Today we’re going to chat, friend to friend, about how we can show ourselves more love, respect and feel more worthy of good things. This episode is here to help you know and show yourself you’re worthy! Take the time to get ready, buy yourself the flowers, go for that walk, drink the water, journal and take yourself on a date once a week. Show yourself you're worthy first and the rest will unfold. I’m learning it’s not all about building my business, I have to love myself and actually enjoy my life! I can’t tell you how much happier I have been these past few weeks since starting my new job and showing up for myself more. I hope something here helps you today reconnect to your worthiness.

73: Starting Before You're Ready with Lauren Taylor

Artist and Business Owner, Lauren Taylor of Lauren Taylor Creates and LTCreative Tours, is here with us on the podcast today discussing the importance of just getting started before you're ready. It's one of my favorite episodes to date! Lauren's own entrepreneur journey is so inspiring and she shares helpful and actionable steps for us all to take to get momentum going on our visions and dreams. The truth is we all feel fear at times when it comes to our dreams. We can doubt ourselves and wonder if we can even do it. We might think we're too late to the game to get started, or think we can't do it because someone else already is. But Lauren helps crush these fears and teaches us how to feel the fear but still get started anyway! Some of my favorite takeaways from Lauren are: Her advice to do a "brain dump" and how this helps free up space in our minds and gives us clarity on our next best step A reminder to not compare yourself to others, especially when they might be 10 years further along in their career than you. Just focus on you. Make deadlines for yourself so you'll actually get going and feel accountable. Tell people about your new venture to make it feel more real, and again, help you be more accountable! No one is special when it comes to starting a business, anyone can really do it. It comes down to your drive and moving through your fear and pursuing it. And much more! One of my favorite things Lauren reminds us of in today's episode is that time will pass whether you go for it or not. You will be 5 years older 5 years from now regardless if you tried or not. So why not just try? It's never too late to start something new. Lauren is a great example of someone who has always trusted her intuition and gone for it in her life. Her story is truly motivating and I can't wait for you to meet her today on the show and leave feeling inspired! She's a total sweetheart and you're going to love her! Tune in below to meet Lauren and get help getting started on your dreams! Also, be sure to check out her amazing tour of Ireland with her company LTCreative Tours happening this May 19-26th. We talk all about it in today's show and it's a great trip to take to feel inspired and get started on your next project. You can learn more about it here! I can't wait for you to meet Lauren!

72: 12 Things I Would Tell My 21 Year Old Self

If you could go back in time and visit yourself 10 years younger than you are today, what would you tell yourself? It's an interesting question isn't it?! Imagine it though, if you could give your younger self a cheat sheet of all the major life lessons that you've learned over the past 10 years, the good and bad, to help you out, what would you say? I actually was asked this question from a listener when I asked for show topic ideas on Instagram (you can follow me @whattheeffpodcast and @taylormorgandesign). And it really got me thinking, what would I tell my younger self? What have been my biggest takeaways and ah-ha moments over the last 10 years? Now I can't go back in time, but I can still share the lessons I would tell my younger self with you in hopes that something can help you on your journey. We can all learn from each other, and I think no matter our age or what stage of life we are in, we can learn something helpful from everyone. I hope that something I've had to learn the hard way can help you out on your journey, and hopefully save you some time! And if you have any big life lessons you want to share with me, please share! I always love learning from others too! Lastly, I have to point out another inspiration for today's podcast episode, my younger sister, Avery. She is graduating high school this year and I really thought of her as I was making this list. Aww what I would give to have an older sister to give me guidance at 18 haha! I can't tell my younger self these lessons, but I certainly can her. And hopefully she will listen! #teenagers I jump right into my list of 12 things in today's episode. Click below to tune in and hear each tip in detail. We can't go back in time, but we can learn from our past and make a better today now. Whatever it is that is on your heart to do, do it now. It's never too late, and 10 year older you in the future will thank current you for starting today! Do it for you! You deserve all the best!

71: Am I Enough? How to Feel Worthy of Good Things

Download your copy of "8 to Great" here! The Morning Priming routine you've been looking for! Recently I polled people on What The Eff's Instagram and asked them what they wanted to hear on the show and what they needed help with. It was overwhelming how many people responded with different variations of not feeling good enough, or worthy enough, or not "something" enough. Some people don't feel good enough for the job they want, or even the job they already have! They feel like a fake who is going to be called out for not fully knowing what they're doing. Others don't feel worthy of a romantic relationship that they long for. And some have all the good things happening in their life, but they don't feel deserving of it and or worry it won't last. The list goes on and on. But no matter the fear or worry someone has, the underlining theme here is we all struggle with not feeling "enough." We struggle with not fully understanding our own worth as a person. This is a problem, a root problem actually, because all of our experiences in life start with us and our belief system. In life, we can only experience what we believe to be true. Another name for this is the Law of Attraction. If we don't feel worthy enough for good things in life, then life will keep reflecting back situations that reinforce that belief system. It's the law. (If you want to learn more about Law of Attraction, then I recommend googling Abraham Hicks and Law of Attraction - Abraham explains it best). But the great news is, we can change it. We can change anything in our life by changing our thoughts and feelings. It takes work, but it's very doable. And when we start believing in better things for ourselves, and we start believing we're worthy human beings, then more good things start showing up for us, one after another! It's truly amazing (and so much fun)! Recently I've struggled a lot with my own self worth as I've been closing my fashion company down that I ran for 5 years. I had wrapped so much of my worth and identity in my company, without even realizing it until it was gone. When the company failed, I felt like I failed. I felt worthless at times for not figuring it out and making it happen. Now quick side note, I don't actually believe in failure. I know better to know everything is a learning experience and I grew so much from doing all of it. But being the type A personality that I am, I still struggled with feeling worthless. Needless to say, the past 7 months have been the hardest of my life for me emotionally. But they also have been a beautiful reminder of how important it is for me to know my worth. I've had to really lean into learning my worthiness and understanding it isn't tied to any job title, relationship or situation in life. My worth is just me. And that's enough. I don't have to do anything to earn my worth. It's been hard to accept that I'm enough for just being Taylor. But I've been able to develop a new more loving relationship with myself and I'm feeling more grounded and better than ever. I've learned that sometimes things don't work out in life, and that's okay. And that it isn't a reflection on my worthiness as a person. While the past 7 months have been hard for me, I'm happy to report I'm coming out on the other side. I see the big BRIGHT light at the end of the tunnel! And having gone through this struggle, I can share with you the 5 t

70: Learning to Rebuild

There have been many changes through out my life, and with those changes I've sometimes needed to completely rebuild things. Sometimes from the ground up. When you're in a rebuilding phase of life it doesn't always feel the greatest. But I want you to know you're not alone in needing to rebuild. We all have been there. Heck, I'm currently rebuilding my career and finances right now as we speak. There is no shame in rebuilding. Rebuilding is our chance to make our life the way we truly want, how exciting is that?! We can always start again and it's never too late to have the life you've always wanted. As I mentioned, I'm currently in a season of rebuilding as I am shifting my career from Fashion Designer to Influencer and focusing on paying off all my student loans. Going through all this, I've been self reflecting on the other times I've needed to rebuild things in my life. After reflecting on it, I noticed there are 4 common stages of rebuilding I always go through. And today I want to share those with you in hopes these stages will help you too. I think each stage is equally important and necessary to actually rebuild things and move towards a better tomorrow. In today's episode I break down each of the 4 stages of rebuilding, which are: Grief Acceptance Getting Organized Making a Plan I explain each stage in today's episode so be sure to click below to tune in now. No matter what you're going through in your life, you can always rebuild. We're humans, we will make mistakes or fall short at times, but it's okay. We can always improve. At least we're out there in the world trying. I'd rather be out there trying and failing than not trying at all. I share this quote from Teddy Roosevelt in the episode but I will leave it here with you too cause it's so good: "It's not the critique who counts. It's not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done it better. The credit belongs to the person who is actually in the arena. Who's face is marred with blood and sweat and dust. Who at the best in the end knows the triumph of high achievement and who at worst, if he fails, he fails daring greatly."
