Manufacture Your Day by PUSHING YOURSELF TO GET BETTER

 In Manufacture Your Day

Have you ever been frustrated with yourself that you are too fearful to spread your wings? 

I have been there and honestly, it was an emotional roller coaster. 

Just recently someone said to me, “Karin, how come that you are never worried?” 

I smiled because I find it quite interesting that I come across that way. Of course I worry. I think everyone worries. It is human nature to worry. 

What’s different with me is that I refuse to give into my “worrying mind” for very long. I know how to shift focus and get myself into a different emotional state. 

Over the years I have definitely gotten a little better when it comes to spreading my wings. I have learned to embrace uncertainty and I always do my best to push myself out of my comfort zone. For me it is all about getting better, pushing a little bit further and being mindful about having fun along the way. 

When I start to feel too comfortable (money wise, work wise, in my marriage, with my clients), I make sure to step it up a notch. 

In my mind being too comfortable breeds mediocrity. 

I always do my best to set goals that really scare me. Right now I am in the process of planning my first executive offsite in Austria in October of this year. I plan on making this a life changing, rejuvenating and transformational experience for all the attendees. 

This is a pretty big undertaking for me but nothing I have done in my life hasn’t been scary at some point or another. 

Here are just some of the highlights: 

  • Moving from a small village with 850 people to a city with a population of 250,000
  • Changing jobs for career advancement
  • Breaking up with my cheating long-time (9 years) boyfriend in my early thirties
  • Moving from Austria to Canada in my mid thirties (seeking adventure)
  • Starting a new admin job in a new country at age 35 (not the best career move) 
  • Starting a business at age 39 (back in business)
  • Falling in love again at age 42 (what’s life without love?)
  • Going international with my business at age 47 (it’s never too late)
  • Getting married at age 49 (the best things happen later in life)

Looking back, everything fits together and makes a lot of sense. I think that taking all these risks has strengthened my character and has served me to be who I am today. 

I encourage you to spread your wings. Who knows where they will take you. 

My experience has shown that a few “oops” are alway s better than too many “what ifs”. 

Are you with me on that?
