You need to take risks to grow


Hey guys,

New York was AMAZING. I’m editing a vlog in a new style that I haven’t had much of on my channel earlier, so I’m excited to share that. Speaking of “new style”…

Lately I’ve had a lot of new ideas and creations for new type of videos and channel ideas. But I’m scared. Usually I was never scared to try out new things. But then my creative side created a business side. I now have an audience that expect certain things from me. I have people on the business side who create money of my business. I have people around me who have opinions on what I do.

It’s not just that, though. I could have my new ideas and have them as an side hustle. But you got limited time. This fall school is my first priority, and I wish I had more than 24 hours than Beyoncé do, but I don’t. As Marie Forleo said in a video I watched of hers (along those 50 other ones): “Saying yes to one thing, is saying no to another one”.

There’s a reason why it took a long time before I launched Career Material. Because I had so much other stuff going on. And then I realized that to keep a certain focus, energy and have time for something, you need to say cut off other stuff that means something you.

But then I again… I can’t always do the same stuff. No one can. It’s important to take risks and try out new things to grow and learn. I know this. But it’s terrifying (more than I like to admit).

I got so much inspiration. And that’s why I hate feeling like I got to stick with something old. I feel like I say “I don’t know what I want”, but I do know what I want, but I use than excuse to create another problem that will disguise the real problem. You get me? Is it  a bigger failure to never try new stuff and to play it safe, or do something that may disappoint those around you and yourself?

I have a meeting next week that will determine and maybe have a lot of saying for what I will do next. We’ll see. I’ll update you guys. 🙂

Is there something you want to do right now that excites you, yet scares you? Or if you have been in this situation… What did you do? – Mondelia
