Kia ora e hoa,
Firstly, I hope you have been well. Secondly, I need your help! Email me back any assumptions or questions you have about me. All you have to do is reply to this email. I’ll answer them in a future video next week. Thank you in advance!
This week is officially my week of unemployment career sabbatical.
As you know, I’ve been on a journey of producing content, this week I’ve been thinking about mental barriers that have stopped me from publishing.
I mean. It’s thrilling. It’s exhilarating. It’s the best feeling in the world. That’s when you hit publish. But for while it was a daydream.
And what usually stands in the way:
  • Overthinking
  • Internal critic
  • Realising our friend may not care
  • Having a fixed mindset
  • Comparing ourselves to other’s success
  • Thinking we are being dishonest
I dive deeper into this topic in my recent blog post.
Don’t forget to check out more content below. Feel free to share this or any content with anyone who you would think will benefit. Thanks for reading and talk soon.
Ngā mihi nui,
Shivan
