Don't Play Small

business confidence mindset motivation Nov 15, 2018

Last week I found myself making myself small to make someone else feel comfortable. Why did I do this??

Who am I? Well first off I’m just a regular shy introvert. I’m a mom of 3. A wife. A dreamer. A bit of a dork. I help women every day reach their goals in both health and in business. I built a 6 figure online business from home 🏡 from the ground up in less than 2 years, and doubled that salary the following year. No. I’m not going to dumb that down anymore. I worked harder than I ever did in my entire life for that success. I continue to work hard for that as I’ve got BIGGER goals too.

For some reason this morning I found myself thinking about all those people who made me feel ashamed of who I was, or what I was doing. Shame on me for allowing that to happen.

When I broke out of the 📦 box, and started doing things a little differently, all of a sudden people had an issue with me not conforming to the 9-5.

Those so called friends who got annoyed by my posts... or laughed at me when I told them my dreams of bringing Dennis home. The “friends” that no longer cared to ask what I was doing or cared enough to be interested in my life. The friends that stopped responding.

You really do find out who your true friends are when you start to grow as a woman, or have success in your life.

Have you ever been with someone that just can’t bring themselves to ask you how you are, or be happy for you?? 😳 Totally sucks.

Here’s what I learned. You need GROWTH friends. Friends who get it, and want more for their lives, and can support and cheer you on in your life too because they aren’t insecure.

I need NOT make myself smaller, because I have some big goals. My goals are not going to be achieved if I continue to make myself small, and they sure as hell are not going to be achieved if I try to please everyone, and allow myself to be held back for the opinions of someone else.

If you’re one of those people, who have had success but feel like you can’t share that for it makes someone else “feel bad”, I encourage you to stop, and find new friends.

I had someone message me the other day. She had lost over 30 pounds and found that her circle started to become distant. Her friends started make remarks.

Heck... I even had a friend asked me “where did your boobs go?”... Instead of congratulating me on something so amazing like a 40 pound weight loss, she instantly squashed me, and made me feel SO SMALL. We are no longer friends.

So friends, whether you’re a big dreamer, a CEO, a 6 or 7 figure earner from home, or you reached a massive goal, take it from me.

Don’t you dare make yourself smaller, and don’t you dare let others insecurities bring you down.

To some, yet again... This post will make people feel uncomfortable, and that’s okay, cause this post won’t be for everyone.

But ask yourself.

Have you spent your lifetime playing small or muting yourself for the fears of what others think of you. Have you been settling when you KNOW deep down you’re capable of more in your life?

I don’t know about you, but that kind of insecurity only led me to a life of hating myself, and hating my Monday’s too.

You deserve better than that.
