How to Be Awesome Part 7: If You Want to See Different Results, Do Things Differently

Thanks Melanie for the cute lettering!

GAH! I have been wanting to post this part FOREVER! This is PART 7 in my How to Be Awesome series, and I love it: If You Want to See Different Results Do Things Differently!

Easier said than done though, right?!

And if you’re not sure what the “How to Be Awesome” series, is, it’s basically me, telling myself what I need to hear to help me feel more awesome. THAT’S IT!

But in this video I talk about some things that have happened to me since I started doing the series, and why I started doing this whole thing in the first place!

Also, in this video I give lots more details on my “Search For Your Awesome” events that I did with Bing too, so if you’ve been wanting the whole story on that! HERE YOU GO! Basically I come to many life conclusions and the purpose of my existence, so I mean, it’s good stuff.

Get caught up on all the How to Be Awesome videos here.

By the time I record the video, edit the video, post the video, do all the YouTube stuff, link everything that needs linking and then write the damn blog post to promote the video…I feel a tad spent. So excuse me if the post is brief! I put everything in…you guessed it…the video. So I sincerely hope you get a chance to watch it, respond to it, or that if helps/motivates/inspires you in some way!

AND AS ALWAYS I’d love to hear if this inspires you to try something different? Maybe something you’ve been putting off? Or if it helped you realized a situation where you’ve THOUGHT you’ve been doing things differently but you weren’t? I think that was the boat I was in. I thought I was switching things up…but not REALLY. Know what I mean? You guys always have tons more insight!

In other news I have a new ALISON SHOW TEAM!!! in place, helping me get content posted for the future! Like all the parties I did with Bing and some other fun stuff! So things are LOOKING UP around here! Thank you all so much for your insightful and thoughtful comments on my last post (about blogging in general). I didn’t get a chance to respond to as many comments as I like to, but I wanted you to know I loved and read, and re-read them all. Thank you!

Here’s to trying to make it another day without a complete and total mental breakdown! WE CAN ALL DO IT!

    As usual, i LOVED this! And so, so, so, so happy for you (and so, so, so bummed that I was out of town for the flamingo fest). Way to put yourself out there even further, you have lots of people cheering you on!

    Thank you. Thank you for empowering women like me, women who want to make their passion a thriving career, and women who not only want to see themselves succeed but help others figure it out along the way as well. You are such a special mama, and I truly hope one day our paths will cross and I will have the pleasure of feeling that beautiful energy that you so freely radiate Into the universe!

    I was ready to give up on a little side gig that I have been pouring my heart into day after day. I don’t get paid for it but I’m passionate about what I’m putting out there. I haven’t seen the explosion in engagement or excitement from others that I had hoped for so I was really considering calling it quits. I just happen to remember your series and decided to catch up. Your pep talks are making me reconsider how I have felt about myself and how I have been holding back. I am now considering really putting myself out there thanks to you. Thanks for being so inspiring and so transparent about all the things you go through.

      oh man! thank you so much! I tell Eric I’m going to quit EVERY WEEK. I’m not kidding you. At least once a week I say, “that’s it, I’m quitting everything!” haha. BEST of luck to you!

    Another wonderful installment! But……….. Where’s the music?? That’s my favorite part of your videos, really takes it up a few notches in polish/uniqueness/and fun. Hope your Eric is still available for your vids!!!

    I LOVE this thought the best! I have been in such a not awesome mommy slump lately, so it hit home. So glad that BING found you and all your awesomeness!! Watching your videos brings me back to our Cougar days (and I love that party pic with Tara).

    Hi Allison, I accidently came across your videos via pinterest. I am so glad that I watched all the video`s. It surely inspired me to bring my art out into the world. Because I am 43 I sometimes think , what`s the point, but if your dad can do these things maybe I should kick my own butt and get the etsy shop going. Thanks for the positive vibes xxx
