#Truthmoment I hid in the shadows of my dreams for a long time. The last 10 years of my life has been complicated to say the least. That’s no excuse. Life will always give you an opportunity to stop. Literally - you can stop pursuing your dreams for so may reasons. Pushing past your discomfort, and growing in the trenches produces success.
I went from standing in the shadows of my dreams, to being consistent and trending in three months. Here’s what I did . . .
Back in October of 2017 I made a commitment share my story with more people but I needed a way to do that. I decided to go live on Periscope everyday (I hated going live, btw). Initially it was hard, but I kept at it. At first, I was nervous and had do a lot of prepping to get started. Half of the times I had no idea what I was going to talk about and would rush through it. As I continued it became like second nature to me. I created a consistent schedule and started following a theme. I started sharing my daily affirmation on Periscope every morning. I even began connecting with other live streamers and got a lot of interest in my businesses. I realized that I was building an audience and getting engagement on other platforms like Twitter and Instagram because of it.
Most recently, I did a scope train with The PeriGirls and I showcased my birds. Yes! My beautiful Parakeets Charlotte & JR. Guess what? It went viral! Periscope featured my broadcast and I’m trending! Excited is an understatement. It was so much fun!
Being a featured broadcaster gives me an opportunity to reach more people with my message. This happened because of my commitment and consistency. I believed in myself and my ability to change lives and share my message.
If you’re struggling with accomplishing your goals, here’s three practical ways to keep at it.
- Push past your discomfort.
- Put yourself out there, and be OK with not knowing if people will accept you.
- Stick to a habit, not listening to the negative self-talk that normally holds you back.
Stick to what you’ve started, and learn to trust yourself.
