Surprise! You’re WAY More Capable Than You Think | Bloom Where You Are Planted

Things are looking new around here! Over the next 3 months, I’ll be featured in no less than 7 bundles and summits with other talented and ambitious women. It’s a Life Editor’s dream!

Since I can expect a bunch of new subscribers soon (hiya, friends!), I’ve decided to spruce up my newsletter headers and other images.

I’m not a graphic designer, yet I challenge myself to get out of my comfort zone and do the “admin” work of my business because I follow a simple motto:

Bloom where you are planted.

Another coach said that to me more than a decade ago, and I fell in love with the idea of using the tools and resources I’ve got right where I’m at today.

I don’t need to pay thousands of dollars to a freelancer when there are plenty of user-friendly photo editing apps available to me. Blooming where I’m planted means I can allocate that money to other priorities.

It’s all about choosing where to spend my time, money, and energy. And more often than not, I surprise myself by how scrappy and capable I can be.

Easy Ways to Bloom Where You’re Planted

In Your Business

  • Use as many free or inexpensive tools as you can until you have steady income.
  • Learn from YouTube videos, podcasts, social media, and free blogs until you can hire the help you need.
  • Share skills and swap knowledge with other entrepreneurs. Teamwork for the win!

In Your Relationships

  • Keep a gratitude list of what you love about your partner or lack of a partner.
  • Plan free or inexpensive date nights at home and get creative.
  • Make a home budget with your partner and kids so everyone’s on the same page. Then work towards what you want instead of spending above your means.

In Your Health

  • Use free exercise videos at home or simply walk around your neighborhood.
  • Get a friend or family member to be an accountability partner. You could even make meals together for a fun weekend activity.
  • Search for recipes online or check out cookbooks from the library.

Now it’s your turn! Take one action this week to move yourself forward without spending money or stretching yourself too thin.

You won’t be a “baby bud” forever, and you’ll reach your full potential faster when you allow yourself to use what you’ve got, right where you’re at now.
