Shame is the new success

As you scroll on your screen on Instagram you realize how many businesses are doing advertisement. There is nothing new in this statement, right? However, what is new is that 90% of this sponsored content is coming from new little shops that people are developing at home.

Are you supporting your friend’s businesses?

Reinvent is probably the most said and fashionable word during these tough times. Many people have lost their jobs or their contract have been suspended, so the only solution for them has been to finally get the courage to follow their dreams and do what they have always loved.

What has changed? Nothing! And probably this is the worst time to think about launching a new business, nevertheless, people understood 2 things: 1-life is too short to have boring jobs 2- When there is nothing else for you to lose, you have to give your dreams a go.

And don’t get me wrong, if I say that this is the worst time to try a new path is just because people don’t have much money to spend at the moment, but what I must admit is that I have never seen so many people truly enjoying their life, even whilst facing the worst case of uncertainty in their lives.

When everyone’s lives start going back to normal, probably not all these great ideas will keep on going, but, for sure, it has taught me something… embarrassment is such a big turning point.

Just think for a minute, what would you do if you weren’t afraid of embarrassment? We care too much about other’s comments and thoughts, and let them define us. You don’t wear that sexy bikini because you are “too old”, “too fat”, “too gay” or “too provoking”.

Stop letting yourself for later and embrace that “shame”. The only reason why it affects us so much is because there is a small thought on our mind that thinks of it. We are always waiting to be reassured of the lies that we tell to ourselves and as soon as we know about people’s comments and thoughts, we say to ourselves “I am too stupid, I knew it”.

Hey, please! Stop being your worst enemy.
