Be true to yourself: Is what I am doing or want, aligned, balanced, and Bold?

Social media anxiety is a phenomenon that affects all of us to one degree or another; especially individuals, small businesses, and solopreneurs. We wonder whether we have to compete with the thousands of videos, reels, and blogs we see daily in our feeds. Have you ever thought that these individuals or groups can only do that because maybe they have a team behind them? After a while of trying to compete with them we get burned out and what follows is often an identity crisis. We play to be on the screen someone who seems to have it all sorted, with plenty of time on their hands, when in reality in the back of our minds we are feeling guilty for not attending to many other things. For a while, It all works well until their real person clashes with the not-so-real identity we have created on the screens. Then, anxiety, stress, and inner conflicts are to be resolved which costs time, health, and money. And the realization that we have been missing our lives.

I very much believe that where we are putting our time, we are putting our love. With that in mind, next time you are tempted to spend endless time on your social media, think if you like to place all your love in competition or distribute it in ways that bring you back peace, joy, love, and money of course.

Awareness and clarity in how we like to run our lives and business are important, otherwise, we can spend days creating content that, although inspiring, does not pay the bills nor offer us inner peace or balance.

Sit down for a minute and question how you like to run your life and business. What do you want? Who do you want to serve? Are your clients or the people you like to reach on social media or is it just a portal for you to show up? What are the boundaries you are going to establish for yourself so you don’t spend hours, energy, and money on something that does not serve you?

You know what happens when you try to catch many fishes, you catch none.

Reflect on one strategy at a time, one point of focus where you are going to place all your energy to create more Joy, peace, or business for yourself. Life is happening and you are not getting this time back. Place your attention on asking: Who do I want to reach? What can I do and who can help me? Pick up the phone, and ask for help. Find people who can help and simply share with self-respect and love the reason you are contacting them or what you do best. Don’t assume or think of their answers before you make that call and let them decide. You already have a no and nothing to lose. Put the one that is telling you that is too embarrassing {youe ego} on the naughty step for a while. Elevate your presence by being You and nothing but you and spend your time cultivating the person and professionalism in you until the inside matches the outside. This is alignment and when we are aligned with who we are, things become effortless. You might not know how to be brilliant on social media and yet you are brilliant at being you, only if you give yourself a chance. I bet a lot of people don’t know what you do, what you want, or what you like. People love sharing their time with people, Individuals who they can connect with, someone who they see themselves in.

Here is a little question that provides maximum results and I encourage you to run everything you do through: Is what I am doing or want, aligned, balanced, or Bold?

Be bold and audacious and not only in the color you wear but in the decisions you make. Be bold in how you talk to your friends, family, and clients. Be bold when you ask for what you want. Playing small will keep you….small. If this is what you want then stay the same. Whatever you do, whether in life or business, make sure it is aligned with who you are, otherwise, your heart will find a way to tell you. Anxiety, not sleeping well, busy heads, and nerves in your stomach are only signs that what you are doing is not in alignment with who you are. Our lives are run by our identities and they are run by what we believe. Whatever you do, check that it is in alignment with your beliefs and values. Is what I am doing balanced? If it isn’t it won’t last. You might have a great time for a bit and yet it won’t last, we all know that extreme diets, exercise routines, and dependable relationships are not sustainable. So can I sustain this? and for how long? Make it balanced and it will last.

Be true to yourself:

Awareness, check on yourself often and ask: is this serving me?

Clarity, what do you want as a professional and in your personal life?

Alignment, Is it aligned with me and my family; my environment, and my beliefs?

 Balance, Is it balanced, can I sustain it? Set boundaries

Bold, What would happen if I ask for what I want? Take a risk and go for it

Action, what is the place I am going to place my focus and love?

Elevate your presence; become the embodiment of who you are by matching the inside with the outside and bring your greatness out to play
