The Nicole Holland Show

Dec 31, 2018

Happy New Year's Eve 2018! I can't believe this day is finally here! Honestly, it feels like this past year has flown by in the blink of an eye and all of a sudden it's a new year! Have you been feeling like that too? I know so many others who are experiencing the same kind of thing right now… 2018 came in like a bear and it’s finally hibernating. I don’t know, maybe it’s my age... or something in the cosmos -- who knows? But 2018 was certainly a year of personal and professional expansion for me, filled with a lot of miles traversed both physically and figuratively, a lot of laughter, and a lot of tears. Big love to you and a virtual hug to you too for your 2018 journey. I promise it was worth it! So now, we’re less than 24-hours from a new year and new projects and I’m so fired up about this new show, my new website, and my new personal branding where I’m putting more of myself front and center! Whoa, it’s flippin’ scary but I’m here and I’m doing it. No turning back! So my intention today is to share about what you can expect from the new show and how to get the most from it, but before I do that I just want to hang out in this raw and real place with you for a little bit and talk about moving forward even when things aren’t “ready”. I cannot begin to tell you all of the hiccups, hurdles, and headaches that have happened in the months and weeks leading up to today, and frankly there’s no sense in it anyways because for one thing that would be a big downer -- not what you tuned in for, and secondly it’s none of your business. Suffice it to say there’ve been a lot! In fact I am recording this right now at 4:17 in the morning on December 31st sitting on my sofa, just me and my mic on my laptop -- no music, no fancy intro or outro or any of the things I’m supposed to have, because I’ve been waiting to see if my website would even be up or not in time for launch. At time of recording, it’s still not so I’m hacking things together because as far as I’m concerned, the show must go on. I’ve found in my own life and with countless people I’ve known and worked with over the years, when you think you’re ready to play a bigger game, all of the possible “problems” hit you between the eyes like a 10-pound sack of potatoes, pushing you to just give up. I think about these fun -- not so fun -- little games as God’s way of checking in on me and asking if I’m REALLY ready to grow, or if I’d just rather stay comfortable where I’m at. In my experience, this is where most people stop to either put things on hold or question themselves about if they should even be doing it. A lot of towels get thrown in here. But that’s never been my style, as you’ll hear more about on tomorrow’s interview with me in the hotseat and my friend Jordan Harbinger guest hosting. While I tend to hold myself to high standards -- sometimes impossibly high actually, which I suspect you might be able to relate to too high-achiever -- I also recognize that fear of letting people down, of embarrassing myself, or “looking bad” or unprofessional cannot dissuade me from going after my vision. Do I like putting out content that represents me like an amateur? No, no I do not. But... I’m willing to do it and I’m willing move through the fear because at the end of the day there’s a much bigger picture, and every thwarted effort and every short-term disaster is simply a blip along the way to getting there. We can always go back and improve upon anything that weighs on us once we get through the struggle, but if we quit when we might be Three Feet From Gold… well… it’s just not something I’m willing to do because dreams don’t get realized in the comfort zone.   In order to truly expand into greater abundance, success, and consciousness we must be willing to get uncomfortable regularly and push past our upper limit. No excuses. If you’re interested in exploring more about transcending your upper limit,
