For those of you who are getting to know me on my website or through social media, will hopefully know by now that I’m a firm believer in positive thinking.
This week has also shown me that I need a key word to focus on for the rest of the year. My key word is FAITH.
Faith that everything will work out as I truly believe it will, that amazing things will continue to happen and that everything will fall into place.
I’m going to be really honest with you. On Monday I had a bit of a wobble. There’s a job going at the BBC where I’m currently working full time and two years ago, even one year ago it would have been my dream job. And I was talking to a colleague and she said, “Oh Nicola you should so go for that.”
And I entertained it. I really did. But then in the afternoon I did a training course and I talked about what I was up to and my plans for the future. We were in a group of four and each of my colleagues who listened to what I have planned said the same thing. “Inspiring.”
I’m not telling you this to blow my own trumpet. I’m telling you this because since that moment, when I spoke to them, I drew a line in the sand. That line means that come the end of June, it’s just me and my dreams. And since that decision and having that clarity, amazing things have started to happen.
I’ve been hired by someone I really admire to be their publicist for their amazing book (it’s going to be great), I’ve had conversations with people about launches and how they can effectively communicate their brand to a much wider audience. And then the photography business has seen a real influx of new and exciting bookings both for weddings and commercial projects. All since Monday. All since I took that leap of FAITH. And we’re only on Thursday!
So yes positive attitude, sending out positive energy and maintaining a positive outlook in general, really does work.
And if you;re reading this and you’re stuck in a bit of a rut or you’ve had a bad week so far – I want you to know it won’t always be this way. It absolutely will get better.
Because when you smile – somehow the universe starts smiling back at you.
And everything begins with you… x
