Taking it back to basics here and thinking about what I really want to use this little space of ours, for. It has dawned on me recently that I sometimes struggle to say exactly what it is I do. It’s partially due to that oh-so British trait, self-deprecation to the max and partially because I do so many things that it’s kind of understandable when I take a pause. But as I would tell any one of you, know your hustle and most importantly – be able to sell it. Face to face encounters are the single best way to build your community, don’t waste those opportunities because, like me, you’re slightly unsure of how best to package up you and your biz. So, Break The Loop is a lifestyle blog. Sure, I guess you could say that the term ‘lifestyle’ is a niche all of its own but in my mind, to be truly successful, that’s simply not specific enough. What do I want people to visit this site for, above all else? Looking back at our mission statement, written in 2015 (wow, time flies!), it’s there – staring me smack bang in the face…
Play the game but from a different angle and with a whole new set of rules. Do what you do but do it differently.
I want this blog to not only be my own journey and process but to also guide and encourage others to create a new normal. One that gets them jumping up out of bed in a morning – ok maybe jumping is a stretch but you get the gist.
I know that there is another way, multiple ways, in fact, to be wildly successful (whatever your definition of success) and contrary to traditionally held beliefs, many of them do not stem from that standard go-to-school-go-to-university-get-a-job trajectory. I want to encourage people to truly question what they want out of life (not what they think they want, or what they think others want for them!), what they’re good at and what they enjoy doing and finally, how they might go about achieving it. Most of all I want to encourage people to believe in their own unlimited ability to change the course of their future. Throughout the years I have spent way too much time feeling stuck and lost and hopeless, so I totally understand how hard it can be to see light at the end of the tunnel. It is, however, incredibly empowering and freeing when you truly realise that everything is temporary. Your situation now, will not be your situation next week, next month or next year. If you want things to change badly enough and you fight for that change, even in some small way, whatever way you can – the Universe will listen and respond.
Life is short and it shouldn’t be wasted waiting for that perfect opportunity to come knocking at your door. I want each and every one of us to be able to look back in a years time and think, ‘S*** look how far I’ve come!’.
So, whilst it will often look pretty much the same around here, there will be an added focus and a honing in on certain aspects of the content that I already produce. My lofty goal is to make this a one-stop-shop for all of your lifestyle needs, I want this space to inspire, inform and motivate. Anything biz related that you can’t find on here, will probably be over on Get To KNOW (I have just posted The Top 5 Business Apps You NEED In Your Life – Let me know what you think?). If there’s any content that you would love to see or feel like you need, please just drop me a line, either in the comments below or via email and I’ll do my best to get it done.
Wishing you all the best week, it’s only Monday but I hope you’re already getting s*** done, seeing results and feeling better than ever.
This gives me some hope that things will someday improve. Feeling very stuck and lost right now.
I’m really glad of that, love. Sorry to hear things are shitty right now, I’ve been there and it’s the worst! (You’re still smashing the swimming, though!!) If I can help in any way, let me know? xx
