JOIN THE VENUS WARRIORS CONVERSATION:

Liz Lima:

It's Monday. And I wanted to share with you guys something that kind of irks me a little bit when I hear people complaining about what's going on in their lives. So real quick, if you don't know by now, this is a movement that I have termed venous warriors because I feel that this is something where I feel like when I want to get something done, I just have this passion and fire inside of me and I just want to get shit done. And I kind of feel like that's warrior mode, right? So that's why I termed the Venus warriors. So what I do is I mentor women to for empowerment to pursue their passions and their purpose mostly through entrepreneurship. Um, I have some courses and some programs going on, but literally it's all about self work and how everything you want really is already inside of you and we kind of just have to pull it out a little bit just in case that you need a little kick in the in the ass.

Liz Lima: 

So that's when, that's what the venous warrior movement is. And my mission is really to empower all of you to finally get up, go out and do what it is that you want to do and finally achieve it. That is my goal. So what I want to talk about today is it doesn't matter what others are doing, it matters what you are doing. And this was actually a blog post I wrote last week because it was short and sweet so you can totally read it. I think it's like 10 sentences total, like two minute rate. But it really hit me because a lot of times when we're trying to finally go after a goal, let's say we've pinpointed a goal that we want and we say, that's it, I've decided I'm going to do it right. And so you're fired up and you're going to go after this goal and you're writing everything out and you've got this mind map and going and you have all this stuff getting ready.

Liz Lima:

And then you start fading and looking and looking and what's that person doing? And Oh wait, what are they doing? And oh wait, maybe I should do that. And Oh wait, what? What about that? And then you kind of lose focus and now you're all over the place. And the passion that was there in the beginning starting to fade away because you know you don't even know what you're doing. Right. And nothing gets done. So my question to you is, it doesn't really matter what people are doing around you. Like do you think that successful people would stop what they're doing only to focus on what 10 other people are doing? No, they definitely put their head down and worked for what they wanted and they built their path. But the keyword here is that they were doing something right. They didn't get into this analysis, analysis paralysis.

Liz Lima:

They, they didn't just say, okay, what's this person doing and what that person doing and should I just do that or what, where, where should I go from here? And No, you know, the thing that happens is you get distracted and then it's almost like you're all over the place and this is the issue, especially if it's any type of goal, anything that you want to achieve, even if it's like weight loss, even if it's writing a book, it doesn't matter what it is. Pick one thing, tell me your goal and I guarantee that you probably some way, one way or another started to watch others or even research like see what everyone else is doing. Things like that. Because then it actually is delaying your progress. Rozalia says it took me a long time to stop comparing and the focus has been incredible. See?

Liz Lima:

Exactly. And I'm with you. Yes. She also says, I'm still guilty from it. Time to time. Listen, woman, I am too. I'm telling you, like I literally have to slap myself in the face to stop it because I am the same way, right? Because we, when we have this, this goal and we're fired up, you're passionate about what you're doing. I'm passionate, but what I'm doing and we just want it to succeed, right? And we want it to just be this amazing thing. And it's good to have, you know, set times to understand maybe a process of how to do something right. But what happens is, is when you start ping pong back and forth and back and forth, and you're literally getting emails after emails have so many competitors and you're on all these email lists, or you're, you have so many, you know, weight loss books, or you have so many blogs like tagged in your bookmarks because of how to write or whatever it is that you don't get anything done yourself.

Liz Lima:

You don't do anything. All you're doing is researching and this, this is what really brings you down. It really does. And so that's why I love the keyword and the quote is doing because you need to be doing something to go after what it is that you want. Right. And um, I just, I just love that because I see it a lot. I see a lot of people, you know, when you start, when you start hanging out with people who are extremely knowledgeable in one area of focus, right? Let eat, and let's say it is weight loss, right? Or even, let's say it could be anything, just pick any topic, social media marketing, right? They get so focused that sometimes they will, they'll start veering in paths because they see some shiny new thing, but they stop what they're doing because they start very often to that.

Liz Lima:

And that's, and that is just taking away from all of this amazing results that are waiting for you just at the end. So that's what I wanted to share tonight was that quote because it, it really, it really makes a difference that there is a way to find out how to get things done. But there's also the enjoyment of actually trying it and figuring out for yourself, right? That's the journey. That's the journey that everyone tells you that you should be enjoying. That's what it's about. So make sure that when you start getting into that hole of researching and not doing it yourself, real it out. Come on, get, get back out, get out of that hole and start like get back on track and go forward with what you want to do. So something that's great with this is when you have a schedule, if you schedule out what you, what you want to do, how your days look, right?

Liz Lima:

Maybe Sunday's the day that you prep. So whatever it is, right? If it's for your business, if it's for your goals, whatever it is, Sunday you will map out your whole week and say, okay, this is how I want it to be and things will come up. Trust me, I'm a mom of two, my husband's my third child and things come up. Trust me. And it kind of seems like life is crazy, but you just have to go with the flow sometimes, right? And things will happen, things will come, things will go. But if you're truly passionate and you really understand that that's what you love, then you'll always have, you'll always have that will and the desire to bring it back in. So I'm really excited because this is what I talked about tonight in my masterclass. Uh, the five day masterclass started tonight and it went amazing I think.

Liz Lima:

​But until I have someone tell me different, I'm going to say it was my thing. So, um, and I wanted to call it here because I just really liked talking to you guys and I really love to share what I have and be able to give you, you know, maybe some insights on all the crap that I did that didn't work and how many times it took me to get through to what I wanted. And that's my tips and tricks. So thank you so much for joining. I hope that you will start doing and maybe stop. Thank you. Rozalia she says she's loved the love getting motivated me good. Because listen, if this was something where we were hanging out and drinking wine like Cassandra, she knows it gets, it gets, it gets real dirty and, and there's a lot of tough love but a lot of hugs too.

Liz Lima:

So virtual hug, that's what I'm giving you guys. How's that? So thanks so much for coming out. I really enjoy it. If you're watching this on the replay, please put Hashtag replay. I'll have to make up a new tagline because I always hear hashtag replay and it gets cut. It's getting old. So give me some ideas ladies, what I should say. But if you feel that this helped you in any way and if it can give somebody else a kick in the ass and what and what they want to get in their life, please share it. Tell them that they should be part of this movement because we really need to spread all of this warrior tribe. Love around and thank you so much. Aren't they adorable? It's my right. It's my animal coming out. Thank you so much guys. Oh my God, I could talk to you guys all night, but then we'll be, I don't want to waste your time and time is very, very valuable, so thank you ladies. Have an amazing night. Give me some comments. Tell me what it is that you're looking for in your life. What struggles are you dealing with so I can cover them? Thanks so much.
