Bonjour mes amies! Dreaming is easy; we literally do it in our sleep. The tough part is bringing those dreams to reality.
The difficult part of executing said dreams is the drive to do so. As communal creatures, we were designed to seek approval from those around us. I’ve shared beaucoup blogs about how to deal with loved ones who don’t entirely support your vision (click here to read.)
Social media, music, and even society have created a norm around “moving in silence” (I also wrote a blog about that click here to read.) I don’t believe in doing so; I think that there is beauty in sharing your goals and dreams. Perhaps these goals and dreams shouldn’t be shared avec everyone, but I believe it takes a village to succeed.
I think that the biggest reason people choose to “move in silence” is because they don’t want to show/share a potential failure. No one likes to have their misfortunes broadcasted, but is a failure truly the ultimate sign that you have failed?
As avec beauty, success and failure are in the eye of the beholder. I see failure as the person who has never attempted to convert their dreams to reality.
If keeping up appearances (let’s be honest, if you’re on social media, doing so matters) prompts you to show up, accountability could be the best source of motivation for you.
If you’re anything like moi, when I give my word, I mean it.
One of the sole reasons I never spoke about starting a Youtube channel, eCourses, merchandise, etc., is because, what if I didn’t?
What if I let fears, time, the lack of resources or a plethora of other reasons stop me from starting? “Moving in silence” was my safety net.
There are power in words. When you verbally share whatever you want to accomplish, those around you will constantly inquire. Those check-ins can be encouraging or annoying.
I have contemplated starting an accountability network, but I never wanted to announce it because I truly didn’t want to be held accountable. The mes amies trip to Paris? Oui, yet another thing that I did not want to speak aloud because I knew that I would be held accountable (merci beaucoup to the mes amies who continue to inquire about Paris dates. they’ll be posted soon.)
I am challenging everyone who reads this post to speak about their goals to someone. Want to lose weight? Want to save money? Want to start a blog? Speak it, share it.
