November 19 and 20, 2016: Whatever you think, think the opposite (ladybug challenge)

Hello November,

here I am again, with a considerable amount of work, unanswered mails, a book plan pending and a group of people who thought my last presentation sucked.

How do I turn this around?

“Whatever you think, think the opposite”!

This is the advice of the day.

So I have some work I love and I am on top of it, everybody loves and admires my presentation, and what is more, I have an artistic portfolio that has substance and a book that is practically finished.

Glory and wealth awaits in the next corner, and YES, the World will be saved from itself!

November 17, 2016-how to feel good no matter what- ladybug day 2

Dear November,

I had a piece of unpleasant information today, related to my performance with an artistic group. I got a negative evaluation from some clients although my new boss seems to see some potential in me.

How do I transform this into a good feeling?

Well, to begin with, because I have had time with bad feelings, so I am kind of bored. Why not change?

It is so banal to feel bad because someone gives you a bad report. How about feeling good, even elated?

Oh, you didn’t appreciate my style, you don’t want me?

Thank you for letting me concentrate on other things. I might learn something out of it. I asked around to see how I could give a better performance. On the other hand, style is sooo personal…

Maybe someone else does appreciate my style.

I could appreciate my style, to begin with.

I think I am pretty cool.

When I doubt.

When I stumble

When I fall.

And when I get back on my feet and dance!

P.S. I contacted some editors today and my former school teacher who thought I rock!

November 16, 2016: Ladybug challenge day 1

Hello November,

yes, I know, I announced a challenge but let some time pass… between the moment of decision and the moment of the execution there is a gap but it is always time for a good idea!

So here I am with lots of tasks, trying to be on top of my game and how should I respond to the challenges that arise keeping my purpose on sight?

It feels as if I have been busy, but not always with my no 1 purpose.

So it is time to define it.

  1. Writing a book on art this year
  2. Writing literature
  3. Finding a well-paid regular job
  4. Being found by the love of my life

Now, how do I keep my level of energy up and my optimism to the highest? Mind power? Super resilience? Top self-confidence?

I want to have fun on this also!

How about doing one unexpected thing a day!

November 9, 2016: Mind Power

Hello November,

here you are again and I need your energy. I realize my self-confidence needs boosting for the kind of things I want to accomplish.

I know I am good at my work, and I am talented. But when I need to perform and put myself out there I am not my best ally.

So, can you become my coach?

How do I develop a ‘moral d’acier, good enough to take me where I need to go and even further?

Yes, I am listening!

October 27, 2016: Quantum leap again! 30 day Lady-Bug challenge

Hello October,

I have observed a lady-bug this weekend and I might need both your help and hers: I need a major breakthrough and I feel that I have been stagnating for a while. The part-time job I have taken over is taking more than part of my time and writing a new book has been delayed.

And what is more, I faced challenges from my new boss and clients.

How can I turn the situation around?

By focusing on what is really important to me?

Writing, publishing!

I have had a kind of inhibition as a writer because I didn’t try to publish a lot of my work from fear of criticism.

Now, it is time to act.

So I start by checking out potential publishing houses.

Yes, I know I can also self-publish.

But I could at least sent my work before.

And also, 3 hours a day writing challenge.

October 19, 2016: Monday Motivation

Hello, October,

how do I face challenges and stay on top of things? Looking and feeling relaxed, good-humoured and smiling? Do you have any tips?

What if someone is into my face, for example, criticising my work? Or someone else is judging my lifestyle as not being enough of something or too much of something else?

Do I know what the … am I doing? I always doubt a little bit. Is this good enough?

Actually, sometimes it can get better.

But this is not a reason for not loving what there is. Right here, right now.

And having some doubts is also willing to grow.

But I know I am a Champion. And it is by accepting small imbalances that we keep up going…

 

 

October 11, 2016: “We are the Champions”, day

Hello October,

yesterday I felt kind of inadequate on a task I needed to accomplish, so today I want to boost my self-esteem with a “We are the Champions” day!

What does that mean?

I will remember cases where I did it, and celebrate my accomplishments.

It could be tying my shoes, when I was five year’s old, writing my first poem, baking the first cake…

I am what I am and I know what I know.

People are happy to have me around, and I am lucky to be surrounded by encouraging, loving, interesting people…

Even that person who got on my nerves could trigger something interesting.

The idea is to interpret criticism, not as a disapproval of us and our actions.

But to think, I am a great Champion of life, and may be this element will make me better.

Or, I will communicate better and let them know why what I have to offer is valuable, and adapt it to the demand I have.

In any case, We are the Champions!

And we Can Make It!

October 8, 2016: Goals and fun time

Hello October,

you have arrived and I didn’t even have time for a warm welcome; juggling between things to do and getting my self esteem on shape in order to be up to the challenges I face.

So how do I keep calm and relaxed in the middle of the upheaval?

How do I stay focused and at the same time find a new pair of shoes and a vernis à ongles?

How do I know when I am available?

Should I date the person who waited on me at the coffee shop and show me working on my book?

All these questions and more to come in this busy month!
