Giving Yourself Permission to Suck

Giving Yourself Permission to Suck

About this Episode

Hi! Welcome to the Creative Force podcast. In this episode, I speak with returning guest Christi Bovee on Giving Yourself Permission to Suck. Christi shares how we can make friends with failure and be okay being a beginner.

Scriptures Mentioned

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; – 2 Corinthians 10:5 (KJV)

My Takeaways

French kiss failure. Look at failure as the goal.

It’s hugely important how you begin your day. Make time in the morning. 

Keep your blinders on. You are on your own journey.  

Who am I serving with what I am called to do? How can I most authentically engage with my audience?

You have to push past that initial feeling of being scared and know that it will eventually get easier.

Asking yourself: Is it true? Is it really true?

When things come up where you feel like you messed up ask yourself - what did I learn?

The world is waiting for you to show up and it’s time for you to find your voice.

Make friends with failure and just keep pushing forward because the world is waiting for you.
