Find Your Inner Beyonce and Get Everything You Hoped and Dreamed of

Published

What do you think of when you hear Beyonce’s name? Is it her beauty, her interesting children’s names, her fortune, her talent, her serious work ethic, her confidence, her husband Jay-Z or Destiny’s Child?

I know there are a lot of negative things that newspapers and magazines all over the world write about her and there are even more opinions people have about her and her life, but I always trained myself to see the good in people, so I will stick with it.

When I hear Beyonce’s name, I get excited and alert. I start asking myself questions about the work I am doing, the progress I make, how I can create results for myself and more importantly, am I enjoying what I am doing?

Beyonce loves her work. She is so passionate about it and if you watched any of her interviews, you will know that this is all she ever wanted to be doing. She wanted to be an artist, to entertain, to make people feel good and to make a change for the better using her talents.

Even if for whatever reason you may not like Beyonce, I am sure we can all agree that she is a strong woman who created everything she wanted. She worked tirelessly to build her career in both singing and acting, she married the man she wanted, has children with him, she created financial wealth for herself, she is one of the most famous people on the planet, she gets involved in charitable projects and even performed at the World Humanitarian Day in 2012 – a United Nations event!  

“Your self-worth is determined by you. You don’t have to depend on someone telling you who you are.” – Beyonce

I am convinced we all have our own inner Beyonce. That part of us that drives us to achieve our goals, that strives for the best and kicks in when we’ve had enough of not playing full out, of not following our heart and of being fed up with living our lives the way other people would approve of it.

What stands between ourselves and our dreams and goals is the belief in ourselves that we can achieve them and the belief that we deserve to achieve them.

One of my biggest achievements was to move to London and create my dream life here. I was only 21, but I did everything to make that move happen and with each day I am living more of the life I imagined for myself.

There was nothing that could stop me from taking that step, no matter how scary and hard other people tried to convince me it will be. No matter how much my parents worried and no matter how much my friends thought I was giving up a pretty good life in my home country to move somewhere new and start from scratch.

I’ll be celebrating my 9th year in London in September. Go figure! This all happened because I believed I deserved more, and I believed I can make it happen no matter what. If I could make this dream come true, so can you! It’s time to take a page out of Beyonce’s book and start working towards your goals and dreams.

“The reality is: sometimes you lose. And you’re never too good to lose. You’re never too big to lose. You’re never too smart to lose. It happens.” – Beyonce

Whenever I get asked about the first steps to take when one gets serious about living the life they dream of, I advise people to start asking themselves questions. The first step is to figure out what is important to you, what values do you have that you will do anything to protect, what do you want to do with your time, what do you want to achieve the most, and what example do you want to give to those you interact with?

When you get clear and you have your answers, everything will start falling in place. You will feel more connected to your intuition, you will meet people who can help you and you will discover the next steps. All you need to do is take the first one.
