10 tips on how to move from “feeling” inspired to taking inspired action!
On Friday I post this on Instagram –
“One life. Just one. Why aren’t we all running like we are on fire towards our wildest dreams?” 🔥 The message from @thechampagnediet is to live life vibrantly, fully, taking care of your body & investing in your happiness. Her podcast “Style Your Mind“, her multiple books and over all business message gave me the courage to start FIT & Flirty – thank you Cara for your inspiration xo. 💕 In fitness, in business and in life, what allows you to reach your goals is YOUR MIND SET!
Then, I started thinking… What if I never took “inspired action” from the sparks of inspiration I got from Cara? Well for starters, you wouldn’t be reading this…
I was drawn to the The Champagne Diet (for obviously reasons). I love Cara’s style and her podcast “Style your Mind” and books have so much valuable content. What resonates with me and has the biggest impact is her authenticity and openness about her success; it did not come over night! Cara had another career and worked her side hustle for a long time; blogging and self publishing books on amazon for over 9 years! Her brand did not miraculously explode. The way she honestly shares the struggles, hard work and persistency she experienced was, and still is, greatly reassuring to me.
My first inspired action in March of 2018, was googling “how to start your own e-commerce business” and based on what I learned I put together an initial budget and timeline to launch. Trust me when I say I had NO plans to be in ANY of the photos, there was no consideration of a second collection within the first year and if you told me I’d build an ambassador team (of f*cking fabulous women around the world) I would have said you’re bat shit crazy! The thing is, when you’re doing what you love and take inspired action every single day, momentum takes over and before you know it your ideas to “sell champagne and fitness inspired t-shirts” has evolved into a something that has a much bigger purpose.
