[Day 10] Celebrating Freedom! |The Suitcase Entrepreneur
This blog post is in response to Natalie’s 10 Day Freedom Plan Blog Challenge Day 10
Day 10 Challenge: I want you to think back to the journey you’ve been on in the last 10 days. I encourage you to read through all your posts to celebrate all that you’ve written, learned and experienced as part of this daily blog challenge.
So here is blog entry number 10. Challenge complete or just starting? As with life there are always questions to be answered and answers that just create more questions. Here are a couple from Natalie to help clarify and solidify the experience.
What you enjoyed most about your experience of taking part in the blog challenge?
Previously I would have been too caught up in things that would have stopped me from starting. All the normal insecurities that life throws at you: why start, who is going to read it, can I complete it, there is something else that needs to be done, you’re not very good at writing. Until these issues and others are recognised and dealt with (sometimes just acknowledging and putting to one side) the power just seems to grow.
Your favorite challenge day and why?
No real favourite day. They all just built on to each other adding clarity and confidence that ‘I can do it’. The is actually the best feeling and best clarity provider. The small steps move you closer to the next place instead of standing still.
The biggest takeaway you’ve had from it?
If I really choose to do something and allow it to occur (get out of my own way) things can be done and completed especially if it is new and have to distinct success points to draw on.
The next step you’re going to take to make your freedom plan a reality?
For me the next steps are defining and implementing a workable schedule that helps me be and feel more productive and maintain family life. This will allow me to find the next step and be an example for my family to do the same. I personally don’t want to jump to far ahead of myself instead allow the little gains and successes (like completing this challenge) to snowball and grow.
Easiest path is momentum – it needs to be maintained and it will grow.
