Hello and welcome back to the Own Your Confidence Podcast. I'm Ellie, and I'm thrilled to dive into the final episode of our mini-series on the Own Your You Signature Framework. Over the past few weeks, we've explored rediscovering your true self, cultivating self-love and confidence, and creating personalized self-care routines. Now, we're delving into the exciting topic of creating your dream life. This is where all the internal work you've done culminates in designing the life of your dreams.
Self-Motivation and the Myth
In the early stages of my confidence journey and starting my business, I was constantly seeking motivation. I believed that successful people were always motivated, effortlessly accomplishing their goals. But here's the truth: self-motivation is a myth. There will be days when you don't feel like taking action. The key is to understand your "why" and practice discipline. By redefining consistency and being aware of judgment cycles, you can break free from the trap of self-sabotage and cultivate a mindset that supports your dream lifestyle.
Building Habit Loops for Success
Creating new habits is crucial when it comes to achieving your dream life. It's important to approach this process with kindness and self-compassion. Understanding your thought patterns and triggers allows you to create new habit loops that support your desired behavior. By identifying pivot points within judgment cycles, you can shift your mindset and take empowering actions. If you need guidance in this area, consider my mindset intensive to uncover and redesign your limiting beliefs.
Giving yourself permission to dream big is a fundamental step in creating your dream lifestyle. Visualize who you authentically are and what you want your life to look like. Trust in your capabilities and set goals that align with your vision. Creating a vision board is a powerful tool for manifestation. Whether you focus on the next six months or the long-term, allow yourself to dream and create a visual representation of your aspirations. For practical goal setting, our workbook Uplevel Your Life can help you break down your visions into actionable steps.
You are capable of more than you realize, and anything is possible when it comes to creating your dream lifestyle. Remember, it will require work and action, but with a foundation of self-love and authenticity, you can achieve the life you crave. Embrace the journey, hold onto the belief that you can make it happen, and take the necessary steps to bring your dreams to life. Sending you so much love!
