Photographing your moments in San Francisco, California

It is fascinating how fear can sneak up on us just when we’re on the brink of leveling up. It’s like how an uninvited guest, can suddenly manifest itself when you least expect it. I experienced this moment recently while standing in front of the mirror, doing my hair, and reflecting on my current goals, as I typically do in the mornings.

Recognizing the Nagging Feeling

The first inkling of this nagging feeling crept into my consciousness about three weeks ago. Back then, it was so subtle that I brushed it aside, not paying it much attention. I assumed I could easily ignore it, as it felt insignificant at the time. However, during this particular morning, the sensation became almost overpowering, impossible to ignore.

This nagging feeling prompted me to ask myself a crucial question, “Why are you playing small?” It’s funny how we can convince ourselves that we’re pursuing ambitious goals, only to discover, upon introspection, that we’ve been operating within our comfort zone.

The Importance of Self-Reflection

In a recent episode on my podcast, I emphasized the importance of self-reflection. It’s a practice that should not be underestimated because it allows us to realign our energy with our true goals and purpose. When our energy is in sync with our aspirations, we stop playing small, and even if we momentarily succumb to fear, our faith in our purpose keeps us moving forward.

The Journey to Playing Big

Playing small is an insidious trap that many of us fall into without realizing it. We may think we’re reaching for the stars, but when we pause to evaluate our actions, we often discover that we’ve been limiting ourselves. So, what can we do to overcome this self-imposed limitation and step into our full potential?

  1. Self-Awareness: The first step in breaking free from playing small is self-awareness. We must be honest with ourselves and acknowledge our fears, doubts, and limiting beliefs. By recognizing them, we can confront them.
  2. Set Clear Goals: It’s essential to have clearly defined goals. When we have a clear vision of where we want to go, life becomes easier.
  3. Daily Affirmations: Incorporate daily affirmations into your routine to boost your confidence and self-belief. Positive self-talk can help counteract the negative thoughts that often hold us back.
  4. Surround Yourself with Supportive People: Building a strong support system is crucial. Surround yourself with people who believe in your dreams and encourage your growth. Share your aspirations with them and let their positive energy fuel your journey.
  5. Consistent Action: Consistency is key. No matter how big or small your steps, taking consistent action is what ultimately propels you forward.

Now before I wrap up this blog post I just want to take the time to express my gratitude to all of you for supporting my brand and for sharing The Scherise Saskia Podcast episodes with your friends. The manifestation of my dreams has become a reality, and much of it is attributable to this incredible community.

In the 3 years, my podcast experienced substantial growth in terms of downloads. What used to be a monthly achievement in 2021 has become a daily reality in 2024. This progress serves as a testament to the power of faith, self-reflection, and continuous effort.

So to conclude, embracing the journey to your next level can be a daunting task, often marked by moments of self-doubt and playing small. However, through self-awareness, clear goals, daily affirmations, a supportive network, and unwavering consistency, you can overcome these challenges. The path to playing big may not be free of hurdles, but with faith in your purpose, you can continue moving forward, inching closer to your goals with each passing day.
