Why Perspective is Necessary for Entrepreneurs, and How to Find it

Why Perspective is Necessary for Entrepreneurs, and How to Find it

I woke up from my daily nap today....

<3 love you Spain....

...and I had this overwhelming feeling of failure.

You see just two days ago, I embarked on a new stage in my blog. 

One where I show up and get REALLY visible for 100 days.

It's part of my plan to boost up my income, and it is A LOT of work. I've set myself some really big challenges. It's had been going really well, for the past two days anyway, and today idk why but it just caught up with me. 

Then I had the realization that I'm only 3 days into a 100 day plan...and that oh yeah! It's OK not to be seeing any results yet.

So that hit me, and then I was able to fall back on my old sense of perspective. 

See I tend to get a little teensey bit dramatic...and that's because I'm such a detail oriented person that sometimes I miss the big picture.

See and being good with details is a gift! But it's easy for us detail-minded people to get lost in the fact that only two days have passed and my new blog plan isn't immediately making me any money. Lol...

Detraumatization: For the First Time Your Breakthrough from Emotional Pain

Detraumatization: For the First Time Your Breakthrough from Emotional Pain

This is not an easy post to write.

In fact, it's terrifying.

But it's time to share my story, to help others like me.

I suffered many traumas before I turned 18. Traumas that would leave permanent scars.

Some people get trust funds, and others get a deep sense of mistrust with the world. I was of the latter group.

My first trauma happened when I was six or seven years old. I was molested by my uncle.

I was trapped.

Physically and mentally trapped. And I could not move. Nor did I understand what was happening to me. 

Traumatic events like these teach the mind to feel trapped and afraid in other, normal situations.

Fast forward 15 years and I can't be in large crowds, I can barely leave the house, and I have debilitating anxiety.

This sexual abuse was not the only traumatic event that I survived, but it's effect was lasting.

I was stuck in an eternal limbo. Never being able to complete the chain of my fight or flight reactions. In some cases doctor's call this PTSD.
