I started 2016 with working on myself. Some books really helped me out, like Instant Motivation by Chantal Burns and Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert. These books really helped me to be back on track and open my eyes on obvious things.
First of all, I had to understand what brings me down.
-Being addicted of the outside sources (even belief that inspiration comes from outside)
– Waiting for best moment/right time.
-Asking too much advice (Do you think I ‘m on the right track?)
-Comfort zone became like a closet for me (cozy, warm, but SMALL)
– My way of thinking (I’ll be happy if…, I’ll start something if…, I’ll be be peaceful if…) So, I have deleted if’s and this is what happened. I’m happy, I’m starting fresh idea, I am absolutely peaceful with myself). My way of thinking and attitude created problems, to be able to solve them I need to change it.
-In terms of projects I always ask too many questions (again IF (what if this is not gonna work, what if it doesn’t looks interesting enough). Since now, now questions, just create. All those questions made almost the good idea wash out and go to someone else). So, just go with it and see what happens!
-Not willing to see obvious things (yes, 100% GUILTY!)
-Negativity (moaning how bad things are). Well, those moans can happen for a short period of time. Then the magic slap should happen. It did happen. I’m happy that there was a very special person who just listened, understood and cheered me up).
I feel like this method really helped to not only understand problems, fears etc. but also overcome them.
