I can do this!
This was an exciting month for me. I hosted my very first yoga event! I spoke with my friend Chris, owner and wine maker at City & Country Wine in November about hosting a yoga event at his brand new and gorgeous venue here in Calgary and he liked the idea! So we planned to host a yin, yang, wine event in February and I was in charge of all the things. Marketing, sales, hosting, catering, teaching.. literally all the things! I was so excited but also shitting my pants 2 weeks before the event. I had never solo hosted an event before, never solo catered an event before, and I had never even taught a yoga class besides the one I taught in India to graduate from my yoga teacher training!!! What was I getting myself into?! What if I didn’t sell any tickets? What if I only sold a few tickets? What if the guests who attended didn’t like my food? What if the guests who attended didn’t like the yoga flow? What if the price I set isn’t fair and people left feeling like their money wasn’t well spent?!
So many “what ifs” and self doubt going through my mind, that this was the best affirmation that I could have set for myself. I told myself every damn day “I can do this!” and it helped me get into the mind set of a BOSS. So how did my event go? It was fucking awesome. Sold out. Food was delicious. Yoga class was great. My guests had so much fun and I could feel the good energy in the room from everyone was enjoying themselves.
If you’re ever doubting yourself, just tell yourself you can do it. Even if you might feel like it’s a lie, fuck it. Tell yourself that you can do it. The Universe listens when you believe in yourself.
