Episode 303: Activate Your Inner CEO

Most of the time, we try to imagine ourselves being the person that we look up to. We admire these people and put them on a pedestal as if they are unreachable. But what makes them different? Remember they are not superheroes with superpowers, yet it is astounding what they are able to achieve in life.

It’s simple – they believe in themselves first.

It is exhilarating to think about that moment when we finally achieve our dreams. Yet we are terrified to step out of our comfort zone to attain them. We tend to stay inside our bubble because we feed our minds with negative thoughts. We always have that fear that we are not good enough, or that we may fail along the way.

But this is the perfect time for you to stop dreaming and make these things happen. Not tomorrow, not the next day – but NOW. In this episode, Nikki Rogers shares her journey on how she started as an entrepreneur and how a tragic life event – her mother’s death – served as the catalyst to actualize her dreams.

Although stepping out of your comfort zone is not easy, it is your first step in discovering your inner strength. You will never know unless you try. Don’t wait for a crisis or personal challenge to start doing what you aspire to do, just take the first step toward your goals.
