Good morning dear followers!

I hope you are doing well today:) I’ve been doing good, as I slept really well and watched a movie in the early morning.

As much as I love to inspire others in doing well, I also love to get inspired by others. And therefore I have some favorite persons to turn to, to watch, to read about and to listen to. One of them, I recently discovered, is Rachel Hollis.

She’s an author of 8 books, some novels, a cookbook and recently two confident-boosting books. Next to that she’s active on Youtube, Instagram, Pinterest, a well-known TV personality and she has her Podcast ‘RISE podcast.’ Maybe you heard about her already but i didn’t until I discovered her book review of ‘Girl, stop apologizing.’

She is such an inspiring power woman, focussing clearly on confidence, believing in yourself and achieving your dreams. Her observations of women being in-confident (and apologizing for their behavior) are a true eye-opener. She truly confronts us (women) with the way we make excuses for ourselves and she tells her motivations and changes to make things work. She’s young but achieved a lot in her live already, by changing her mindset. By stopping herself from apologizing and from making excuses. By starting now, not tomorrow or Monday. And I love that confrontation. Because the behavior we mostly show, is not helping us. And having a bit of don’t-give-a-fuck attitude will bring you a long way, without becoming rude or unaccepted. She clearly shows that (with a big smile!).

“Maybe you have been given your mountain to show other people that it can be moved.” – Rachel Hollis

If you like to be inspired and motivated i would recommend you to read one of her two latest books (also e-books), listen to her Podcast ‘RISE’, watch her Youtube channel or to look through Pinterest (where you find plenty of motivational quotes- I could fill this hole blog with them).
