Update and all

I know. I haven’t blogged in a quiet some time. But I have been working on something- that I mentioned some weeks ago. I am pleased to share http://www.freefromperfect.com — It’s still under construction. But feel free to follow me over at @freefromperfect on Twitter. I’m there a few times a day. I’m finally feeling fulfilled, working on building on my own brand. It’s an awesome feeling. I recommend you do the same. If you have any questions, please feel free to send me an email at krista@freefromperfect.com. I will definitely update this blog with all the new things coming down the pipeline. Thank you all for being apart of my journey of finding myself and rejecting the ‘perfection’ curse. Remember progress not perfection. 

Until next time,

Krista 

It’s about that time! Happy Anniversary!

It’s about that time one year since I started my blog. Even though I had different intentions as to how my blog would work and my expectations to monetize my blog, didn’t quiet go as planned for a number of reasons. That aren’t really important, well maybe they are important. For one I didn’t know why I was starting a blog. A year ago I really wanted to leave my 9-5 and venture on something far more exciting and things that would help me get on with my life, which I still want to happen. But I didn’t have an plan of action in place. Hence you see why things didn’t quiet go the way I planned.  I still want to make money online, but I have taken a step back and have really tapped into resources that are guiding me down the right path. Thankfully. Even though I’m still at my 9-5, I have accepted that I need to be consistent with my plan in order for things to fall inline the way  I would like them to, but more importantly I should but these desires in the hands of God and trust that He will direct me down the right path.

I have definitely learned more about myself. Because when I started this blog, I wasn’t necessarily in the best of places emotionally. There were a few changes going on in my life that affected me and thankfully, this blog was my new hobby. It helped redirect some of my energy from all the other things that were going on in my life. Thank you to the Universe of blogs.  I feel like there is so much to say about what I have learnt from having this blog and I plan to share more of what I learned.

I think I’ll make more of these reflective blogs a little series!

Stay tuned to find out more.

Cheers and Love,
Krista

I hope you had a Happy Day!

I have been sitting in front my computer watching a few of these videos. You see my day, started of fine. Rested and motivated to conquer my day and then I found out my printer that I rarely use doesn’t work and now I have to replace it. Oh fun. It’s the little things that get in our way. But why allow them to get in our way, as they really hold very little validity in the overall picture and more importantly your vision. So I decided to get myself of red wine and just take it easy for the rest of the day.  So the next time you feel like you’re allowing something insignificant to get into the flow of your happiness for the day.

Don’t get me wrong, having to replace my printer isn’t the issue- it’s the fact that I had to sit on the phone with HP for over an hour when I could really be doing what I really want/need to do.

  1. Reach out to someone and tell them how you really feel. This allows you to feel better and then you gain clarity.
  2. Don’t waste your time feeling sad. Just be happy!

    Your happiness is the most important and it’s International Day of Happiness!

    Cheers to your happiness and check out this.

    Wait and if you would like to indulge in more happiness, check out this.

Progress! Not Perfection.

My time lately have been wrapped up with a few things. 

 Here’s a synopsis:

  1. I have officially divorced my fears.
  2. I am working FULL TIME on my Internet Business – I haven’t quiet figured out what my niche is. I enrolled in the Internet Business Mastery, so far I’m truly enjoying it. I’ll do a review on the academy once I’ve completed the modules and had my niche consultation.
  3. I am slowing coming out of my shell and connecting with people.
  4. I’m reading Rich Dad Poor Dad by Richard Kiyosaki (I’ll also do my own review on it). Implementing my Slight Edge strategy here. By taking small steps day by day I’m working progress, not perfection. My review of the Slight Edge, click here.
  5. So there you have it, Krista has opened up. It’s about a year since I have had this blog and I am grateful for the platform to put myself out there more.

    Oh! don’t forget to check out Happiness or Misery here.

    Till next time,

Book Review: The Slight Edge

It feels like forever since I did a book review. The book review on the Slight Edge has been long overdue. So,let me just get to it. This book review will be quiet precise as I plan to later delve into the discussion of this book further. I want to start a dialogue and I want you to be apart of it, by commenting with your personal takes on this book.

The Slight Edge written by Jeff Olsen is an incredible book. Really and truly, its to the point and it highlights the desires  and dreams that we all want. The book is divided into two parts, how the slight edge works and living the slight edge. How the slight edge works, is that it you first need to find the first ingredient.  The first ingredient is that missing piece of the puzzle in order to get started and figuring out what that ingredient is gives you the power to take action. Well, in actually you need to know what to do with this missing piece of the puzzle in order to take action. So do the thing and then you will have the power, also highlighted by Ralph Waldo Emerson Essay on Compensation. Then you need to be a master. Mastery is key to adapting it all in your life. Mastery small steps and being consistent over periods of time will provide you the results that you need. Why is it so hard? Well, Olson eloquently points out that it’s not that these task are hard, they are easy to do and they are easy not to do. 95% of people give up far to soon because instant gratification, laziness and being discouraged. While 5% excel and that’s why they are the slight edge.

Living the Slight Edge exemplifies mastery and to do so, you need to invest in yourself. Investing in yourself is critical to your personal development. Investing in your own personal improvement gives life and light to your happiness, your accomplishments and your continuous learning. Your happiness is key and central to everything around you. Without having your happiness in check, success and accomplishments will come your way and you’ll be left empty.

Now, think about how you would like for the slight edge to work and how you plan on living the slight edge.

The right path to your happiness

We all want happiness. I don’t know anyone on the face of this Earth that doesn’t want to be happy with themselves. Right now in my life I’m trying to figure out what my path to happiness is- I do think this a constant state, but I’m sure at some point we get the grasp of it all. I’m taking the baby steps, because I’m praying and doing my part as I know that God’s plan for my happiness is far greater than any career or relationship(s). Don’t get me wrong relationships are important and so are careers. But what’s the point of having these things if we simply cannot work on our own happiness.  I’m not entirely sure the point I’m making here, but I’m sure there is a point in the mix of all of this.

So what’s your right path? Have you figured it out? Do you like where it’s taking you? I’d love to know what you think!

Keep pushing towards the path that you are in control of and not the one tarnished by others.
By the way, if you have not check out my e-book- Happiness or Misery , please do! I’d like to know what you think!

“The right path is the one you make yourself that leads to your version of happiness” – Pat Flyn

I got this quote from Pat Flyn, I have been following his blog for some time now, but mostly listening to his podcast on iTunes.
