I was reading some blog posts the other day giving advice on social media. Boy, aren’t there are a stack of bad and confusing posts out there? If you’re new to the game, you could be left feeling overwhelmed and frightened!
Do this, do that, don’t do this…
My biggest piece of advice is “never look back”. Own it.
I have learnt so much over the past 18 months. I’ve learnt more than I probably have EVER learnt in my life. I’ve had 150,000 facebook fans of The Block tell me what they think of me. 50% good and 50% bad.
But you know what? I don’t care now. At the time I found it hard, but I gained a new strength. Actually it’s been good for me. I feel better about myself now than I ever did. I’m comfortable. You can say whatever you like to me and it’s not going to bother me.
My point today is: never ever worry about what you’ve done in your life – proud of it, or not. Life is all about growing and learning and making mistakes.
Guess what, I blogged and tweeted waaaaaaay before I went on a tv show. Everything I’ve ever done online is still there. I swore, drunk tweeted, and laughed, and made fun of stuff. That’s nothing I am worried about. I own it. It’s me.
So be yourself. Never look back. Keep tweeting and writing and laughing.
Live your life. Don’t worry about what people will think. Those that hide will lose and be lost.
Own everything! Work it baby…
The best example of this is from Josh and Jenna – they named their business Bicker Design Co. How ironic? I totally love it! But what an awesome example of running with what you’ve got. Never shy away from who you are!
Now, get on with your day and make the most of it… xoxo
