016 – You Are Meant for More – Recording from NYC

This episode of Own Your Journey was originally recorded on my Snapchat at 1 o’clock in the morning early Saturday morning (or late Friday night, depending on how you look at it).  First off, I want to sincerely apologize for the long-winded stories and videos that may have overtaken your feeds.  A few glitches happened through the wonders of Social Media (we all know how I feel about that…), and I am so sorry if you couldn’t escape the massive amounts of videos of me!

There are moments that I have these experiences of pure clarity, and God puts things on my heart that need to be said in that moment, or else I’ll forget them.  I either have to write them down, record them, or, in this case, Snap them.  This episode is the recording of the video that I took that night, which can be found on my Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/jamieshellyofficial.

Last weekend, my family and I were visiting New York City for an adventurous family trip to see a show and spend time with family.  But on the way into the city from the airport, our driver had a seizure in the middle of the Lincoln Tunnel.  As I arrived back in my hotel room later that night, I had one of those moments of clarity that I knew I had to get the message out right away.  I have a close relationship with my Snap-fam, and I felt like that was a good place to hold my thoughts until I had access to compile them all into a different format.

If you were to ask me to repeat what I said that night, I wouldn’t be able to tell you.  Many of those thoughts come from something (or someone) much greater than myself.  I can’t explain it, it’s just the way God uses me to speak to people who need to hear certain messages.  I hope you listen to this message and take this as a sign to make a change so that you can live the life you deserve.

Remember that you are here for a reason, and every single experience that you have on this earth is to prepare you for what is to come, so that you can live your best life.  But the only way that will happen is if you start paying attention to those little signs and following your heart.

006 – Confidence is a Muscle

This episode is all about your confidence, and how to start increasing your confidence starting right now!  We’ve all been somewhere and seen a person enter the room and completely own it.  This person exudes confidence – they’re funny, smart, captivating, mysterious, and sociable.  They own their presence, and everyone is attracted to this person.  Well what if I told you that person could be you??

In this episode, I teach you six ways that will help you start building your confidence right away.  Confidence is a muscle – the more you use it; the more you practice it; the stronger it gets!  But on the other hand, if you don’t use it, you lose it!  I want you to fully own your journey, and that means owning all of you!  So use my top six tips on how to start building your confidence as soon as you finish listening to this podcast.

#1. Stop speaking negatively about yourself to fit in.  Instead, change the conversation to a more positive, uplifting topic.  Compliment someone for something they do well; or talk about something that you’ve recently started working on to improve.

#2. Know who you are!  Know your strengths.  Ask yourself what you’re really good at, and write it down.

#3. What do you really like about yourself physically?  What do you really like about your personality?  Write all the things you like about yourself down on the same piece of paper as #2.

#4. Do something that gets you outside of your comfort zone and builds your confidence.  The more you prove to yourself that you can do new things, and do them well, your confidence increases!

#5. Show interest and engage in other peoples’ lives.  Ask questions!  Be curious.

#6.  Surround yourself with people who lift you up, and rid yourself of the people that drag you down.  If you can’t eliminate them from your life, create boundaries with them.  Tell them what you’re comfortable with discussing, and what you’re not comfortable with!
