For so long I was stuck inside my head, assuming I’d never be able to create success on my terms. So many toxic beliefs were holding me back.
But now I know that all I had to do was start somewhere… a teeny tiny step towards my huge goal. It was so exciting that I managed to take another step… and another. And I have no idea where this will lead me to… if I’ll reach that goal, or if I find another way. But I’m so impressed with all the things that happened in such a short amount of time… everything just because I was brave enough to take this initial step. It feels so empowering to finally create my own magic!
If this resonates with you and you wish to finally start pursuing your dreams, (whatever it is) but you don’t know how and are always postponing it, this post is for you.
If you’ve already started your journey but you struggle with impostor-syndrome, this post is also for you.
I’ll share with you a few tips that helped me to finally create the life I want and deserve, hoping that this inspires you to believe in your abilities and be brave enough to start. You’ll see… It’s not impossible. In fact, if I’m doing it, why shouldn’t you do it too?
Let’s all unravel our divine feminine magic and start to create! Cause that’s what goddesses do. And you are a fucking goddess, I know that! <3
Are you ready? I’ll bet you are! 😉
Okay, let’s get into those tips I promised:
Tips on how to finally start pursuing your dreams and create the life you want and deserve
1. Know your “Why”
Ask yourself why you want this. You probably already have strong reasons to create the life you want and deserve. Write them down! Always remember why you want this because it will push you throughout your entire journey. Motivation comes from determination! If you exactly know why you want to do this, nothing will stop you!
But if you don’t know your “why” yet, think about your soul fuels. What is it that makes you happy? What sort of activities you could spend all day with? Why? What makes these things so fun for you? If you’d want to dive into your soul fuels more deeply, I’d recommend reading this first:
Remember: Your “Why” is the key to everything! Find it, grab it and always keep it in your pocket. I promise It’ll unlock many doors for you! *-*
2. Start somewhere…
You know your “why” and you technically are ready to start. But wait… there might be the slight chance that there is still something that’s holding you back…
Let me tell you: There will always be something that’s holding you back. You will never feel ready and you’ll never have enough time. There is no such thing as the perfect moment to start.
You have to stop postponing it. Think about what your excuses are…
I’ll do it when I have more time.
I’m going to start tomorrow.
I’ll wait until I’m brave enough.
I’m not ready yet…
I’m not sure yet.
I’ll better wait until my kids are grown up.
I’ll wait until I’m retired.
Is this you? No worries… This was me too, not a long time ago.
How I started anyways?
3. Small steps
When I look back, I kind of always knew what I wanted. I was a dreamer, a seeker and when life hit me hard with all the responsibilities, expectations and limiting beliefs I got scared and lowered my standards drastically for a few years. I was stuck, unable to see my deepest desires, depressed, anxious and desperate. Until it got so bad that I suddenly understood what my inner voice was trying to tell me all along: Now it’s time for transformation!
I think, looking at myself from above and seeing this sad, hopeless creature, made me want to rebel against my bad beliefs so badly that my transformation initiated itself automatically.
However, I certainly don’t recommend to wait until you are stuck in a crisis, even though rising like a phoenix is a magnificent and fascinating process to pass through.

Without further ado, here is how you get it started without being a mess first:
Set a goal. Write it down.
If you already have one, make sure it is tangible, measurable and practicable. Also, set a realistic time frame. Let me show you two examples:
I want to become a blogger.
I want to become a full-time blogger and generate a sufficient income with it in two years while working part-time.
If your goal is linked to financial aspects, make sure to also define what a sufficient income means for you.
Now, break down your goal into smaller ones. 6 months, monthly, weekly, daily.
Then, think about the smallest step possible you could do right now. For instance:
Depending on what you want to do, there might be even smaller steps you can tackle. Use To-Do lists if it helps, and tik everything you accomplished.
Starting with a teeny tiny step takes so much pressure away from you. And even if you don’t have the perfect plan yet, start where you are and the power of the process will guide you where you are meant to be.
4. Kick the impostor’s ass
It might occur that you suddenly feel like you are not good enough. Especially when watching Youtube videos of people who seem to have it all figured out, don’t compare yourself to them.
Only compare yourself to where you were yesterday, a week ago, two months ago. This is crucial!
Looking at your progress is incredibly uplifting and motivating.
Be proud of what you accomplished so far. Cherish your journey. Celebrate your growth! You are unique and so is jour journey!
And even if there are hundreds of others who do the “same” thing as you want to do… always remember that there are people out there who exactly look for your content. Be authentic and do what you love.
Your vibe will attract your tribe. It’s as simple as that!
5. Positive Affirmations
Learn to love yourself! – Yeah… That’s not that easy after all. But what if there was someone who always told you how unique, brave, powerful and beautiful you are? What if this person loved you unconditionally? What if this person is you?!?!? Exactly… YOU! Change your limiting beliefs… Replace them with positive affirmations. Make them visible in a journal or on your walls. On my Etsy shop, you can buy affordable prints to help you master your mindset. 😉 Tell me in the comments… Which affirmation would you like as an art print for your home?
