On the 7th of July, I announced that I was going to make a live video every day for the next 90 days.
This sounds like an awfully long time, and it is! And that is exactly the point.
My soul calling is to help young people navigate a pathway in their lives in line with who they are while providing the tools for them to do just that, to fly. We live in a world, designed more like railway tracks. Major decisions that dictate the direction we will be travelling in for the rest of our lives are often affected by external factors like tradition, expectation, status, money. Its not uncommon to get to 40 and look back on your life to say, ''Is this it? Is this all there is?''. The more we connect to our inner purpose, the more we live our life on our own terms.
So there; yoga to connect to an inner purpose, and coaching to give the mental tools to achieve what the soul desires.
Yet; however loud and clear this message is inside of me, it is only effective when it reaches the right people. Its a noisy world, and everyone wants their message to spread. Whether that's their Instagram post, something they're selling, their video. A lot of stuff are demanding our attention.
And even though I love giving private yoga classes and running breakthrough coaching sessions, I found that the self marketing side of it didn't come to me naturally at all! Its because I just felt like another person demanding attention.
Over time, it became clear to me that it isn't about me demanding attention, its me taking responsibility for delivering value to as many people as possible.
So I journaled. How can I deliver value, and make it accessible to everyone? My core intention wasn't coming across clearly. I needed to produce more consistent, value-adding material. I needed to find my own voice in comfortably and confidently talking about what I am most passionate about. And most importantly, make my material less about me and more about you.
The 90 live days challange is a commitment. To myself and to everyone it reaches. And the best thing about it is that I am learning as I go, while helping others grow.
There are some days where I really don't want to do one. But I film a video anyway, because it isn't about me after all.
My motto? Stay real. Add value. Share joy.
Namaskar (The light inside me, bows down to the light inside you)
