Behind this door lies all the secrets to social media success... curious? Ready to bust the lock open?
The secret is showing up. Posting consistently, providing unique content of value to your audience.
And you thought it was rocket science?
Nah, it's really not. Because you see, when you post consistently, your buiness remains active in people's minds and their newsfeeds. And when you post great content you give value to your audience and they remember that. They share, tag, comment and like it because it resonates with them. In turn, your brand does.
Of course, things like hashtags, strategy and engagement are all key components to success but THE biggest one of all is showing up.
It’s not you...it’s me!
No seriously...it’s been over a month since I deleted all other social media and I’ve had a few conversations (face to face-imagine that!) with people about it. Most don’t understand it. I’ve also been more aware of who I’m following on here, and how much time I’m spending doing so. And after 15 years of being actively involved online, I admit I’m loving the freedom of not. It has been worth every bit of lost income (I’m no longer a social media manager and that’s okay!), every misunderstood person who may have taken the decision personally (why I do not know), and every pang in my heart as I realized how many “followers” I had versus actual friends. These are the same reasons I don’t let my teens have social media so this mama is taking her own advice and all of us are better for it. I’ve long since followed the #konmarimethod with my possessions-even before I’d heard of @mariekondo. But applying that philosophy to my entire life has been a blessing. So please don’t take it personal...and I won’t be mad if you unfollow me back. Promise.
The biggest thing I see holding us back from achieving new levels of success and happiness is ourselves and the stories we tell ourselves in order to stop us from making mistakes, failing or even being judged.
"I am not worthy of success" "Good things don't happen to me" "People will judge me"
"Everything always feels like hard work"
“I don't deserve to feel happy/success/wealthy because...." During this Workshop, we will be looking at the impact these stories are really having on your overall life and business. I will work with you to delve deep into the BS excuses we tell ourselves and uncover the real reason you feel this way and what you can do to break these barriers down.
During this LIVE Workshop, we will be looking:
•The importance of creating the right Mindset
•How to build Self Awareness
•What are Limiting Beliefs
•The stories we tell ourselves that limit our success
•How the present themselves in our lives
•The impact they have on our confidence, success, life.
•How to make your Goals BIGGER than your fears
The workshop will be very interactive with the opportunity to receive personalised coaching with me in a safe environment. Using my experience I will help you to see where the blocks are coming from, how they are presenting themselves and the impact they is having on your life. I will challenge you to be honest and open so you can create the breakthroughs you need. We will work on increasing your energy by helping you to gain clarity, focus and direction so you have a clear strategic plan on what works for you and HOW to use it effectively.

Są takie dni, kiedy już chcesz się poddać. Kiedy mimo tego, że wiesz że Ci nie wolno to i tak myślisz negatywnie. Kiedy wszystko zdaje się działać przeciwko Tobie. Wydaje Ci się, że już gorzej być nie może, że to koniec, wybrałaś nie tą drogę. Zawsze kiedy mam w życiu taki moment, wtedy gdzieś w sercu (a może żołądku?) na dnie czuję radość i ekscytację. Moja intuicja mówi mi, że wszystko będzie dobrze, że pojawi się szansa, której się nie spodziewałam. I wiesz co? Dokładnie tak się dzieje🙏 trzeba tylko wierzyć i mimo wszystko myśleć pozytywnie! „Na końcu i tak będzie dobrze. Jeśli nie jest dobrze, to jeszcze nie koniec!” Święte Słowa!!!😍#liveyourlife#lifechallenge#bebetter#selfdevelopment#mentalpower#empowerwomen#empower#project33life#amsterdam#cityofbikes

TRANSFORMING TUESDAY ☄️
Okay, so this is me in my progress. Striving towards my dream, trying to build up something and trying to figure out what I want and how I get there ☘️
At the moment I’m reprogramming my brain. I applied for a startup program but was offered a job at the same time. I’ve been thinking about this the whole weekend and I’ve been so ‘out of zen’. I’ve felt that taking a job would mean that I didn’t follow my heart. But it’s not like that 🌟
1) The consultant from the startup program liked my project but found that the program and workshops did not match my needs as a Psychologist. He said that I should continue working on it and not give up 🌿
2) The job (which last until February) can be a step towards my dream. I’ll learn more about ACT, I’ll get closer to getting my license and I’ll get a salary so I can travel again and continue working on my project. Also, the colleagues seem SO so nice - I value that! 🌏
3) No one says I cannot do both. Of course not full time. But I can try to manage time to work on my book, my blog and my online platform. I’ll have a tight schedule and spend some weekends on intense work. But it is possible 🌿
So, I’m not giving up! I just had to do a check in with my values and ask myself the big WHY so I know why I’m doing this and so I can wake up in the morning and look myself in the eyes! That’s what’s important to me 💙
Transformations are crazy. And value work. Not everything we do matches our values 100 %. Sometimes we go through something to get a little closer to what we want. Acceptance. And commitment. Still I will be aware of my heart in the process and know that I do have a choice ⭐️
Don’t worry dream. I’m not gonna give you up! I’m just gonna do some important things to better my opportunities to take care of you 😘
If anyone is new to my weird, magical, messy and genuinely shown travel-yoga-psychology-world, I’ll just do a quick introduction to what the hell MAGIC MONDAY and FREEDOM FRIDAY (as well as the other weird theme days) are all about 🦄
The purpose of this IG is to help YOU do more of what you love and find fulfilling, to help you find out what a good life looks like for YOU, and to make the world a better place. Oh yes. Easy 🤪 It’s also a reminder to myself to live my life on my own terms based on my values, hopes and mindset 🌎
My writings are based on psychology, yoga philosophy, my own experiences, evidence based practices and whatever I find inspiring 🌿
I love making every day special - in a simple and manageable way. So here we go 🙈
MAGIC MONDAY is about mindfulness, creativity, flow and the magic surrounding us 🌿
TRANSFORMING TUESDAY is about habits, rituals, passion & purpose, life changes, challenges and exploring your why, your values, your soul and your dreams 🌱
WELLBEING WEDNESDAY is about mental, physical, social, occupational and spiritual health (i.e. holistic health), balance, self care, introspection and lifestyle ☘️
THOUGHTFUL THURSDAY is about our relationship to our common world, the earth, each other and our society, environment, sustainability and contribution 💦
FREEDOM FRIDAY is about acts of freedom, letting go of norms and expectation and doing more of what YOU want. Less race, more play. Less stuff, more simplicity. Less black, more colors 🦄
SOCIAL SATURDAY is about the importance of social relationships, friends and family, love, communication and how we deal with e.g. toxic relationships 👣
STIMULATING SUNDAY is about inspiration, getting new ideas, learning new things, using your senses and being stimulated 🙈
It’s all related to (my view of) important aspects of A GOOD LIFE 🤷♀️
We all have different routines. Some are good for us. Some are bad ❤️
Sometimes we don’t realize that we have a routine. And sometimes we are so dependent on our routines that we feel guilty or disappointed if we forget them or are not able to perform them❤️
Sometimes age, job, new relationships, or changes in health make us establish new routines. And sometimes we get inspired by other people’s healthy routines and start implementing them in our own lives❤️
On the picture my mom is on her way to the beach. It’s early morning and she’s soon going to dive into the ocean for her daily morning swim... Before that she did the Five Tibetan Rites. That’s my mom’s morning routine and I love it! So does she! She’s so disciplined about it; it gives her energy and pleasure; and she is more relaxed afterwards because of the satisfaction it gives her...
It’s very inspiring! She didn’t use to have routines like that. I wonder what has changed!❤️
Anyways, another day I’ll tell you about MY ROUTINES which I’ve establish throughout the past five months, and the new habits I’d love to implement... 🧚🏻♀️
Change will happen 🦄
Sometimes we feel stuck. Sometimes we’re scared to move, to change, and to open up for new ways of being. Sometimes we feel a bit too comfy and it seems easier to let life be as it is than to make a change. Sometimes choices have to made to be able to feel alive again...
Embrace the change 🙈 Embrace the mess 💜 Embrace the growth ☘️ Embrace the freedom 🧚🏻♀️ Embrace the creativity 🍭 It’s okay! 💙
