How to forgive yourself and get rid of shame and guilt

This Week I learned…

Written By: Braiden Belnap

Summary This week I was able to interview Frank Bellavia on my podcast. I wanted to share a few things that I learned/We talked about during that interview that I know will help you in life. The lessons I wanted to share are, Entrepreneurship is a hard road, Staying committed will bring you success, Work Hard.

I am so thankful that Frank Came on my podcast. I love talking to other entrepreneurs and learning from them. Frank is such a hard worker and doesn’t give up. I learned about his story and wanted to share some highlights with you. The first thing I wanted to share about his story is that he really started from the bottom. He learned about his passion for cigars and from there he truly created a career for himself. He started as a normal customer at a cigar shop then through him being determined to succeed in that industry he made connections with people and now has his own cigar business. Now this isn’t to say he didn’t have any troubles getting there, but he knew going into entrepreneurship that the road wasn’t going to be easy but it would 100% be worth it. What you can take away from this is if you are an entrepreneur or you’re thinking about starting a business you can do it and I believe in you. You need a plan and have a little grace for yourself if things don’t work out right away.

The second topic I wanted to touch on is that staying committed will bring you success. I have been studying Life Coaching since I was 14 years old. It is truly my passion and I have been able to see people succeed in life from the tools I have taught. However I really only started taking coaching seriously a year and a half ago. I started a youtube, podcast, website, wrote a book, have a membership, and have done multiple workshops for people. I was able to achieve all this because I was Committed. I’m not making Millions yet, but there will be a day when I do. If you really want to succeed in your passion you have to 1o0% commit to the process of getting there.

The third topic I wanted to talk about was working hard. Working hard goes hand in hand with the other two topics however, without hard work you won’t make it as an entrepreneur. Working hard applies to staying committed. In order to honestly be committed to something you need to be working hard. Working hard means doing all the things that you need to do to be successful. So I challenged you to create a plan of action on what you want to achieve, Set timely goals and work hard to achieve it!
