Sunday Afternoon Musings on Breaking Boundaries’ Progress

Breaking Boundaries
“World Domination” (PC: korendezvous)

As I’m sitting in the living room at home, I got to reminiscing about where Breaking Boundaries  is now. Granted, it’s not where I plan it to be yet because I have big goals for this project. I do think we’re definitely making strides, though. Some of you might know that Breaking Boundaries is about a month and a half old. We’ve worked on a couple of collaborations and freelancing gigs so far.

Sometimes I get overwhelmed by the things I want to accomplish through it, but I also get really, really excited about it. I was also thinking about the plans I have for Breaking Boundaries. How do I scale it? How can I increase its value for others? Who can I collaborate with next? Questions that I sometimes don’t have the complete answers to. I just figure that I’ll come up with the answers as I move forward with the project.

Breaking Boundaries’ Next Events

The next events I’m looking forward to are some entrepreneur meet ups for the rest of January and a mini scale fashion show in New York in February. I’m also looking into getting a booth for the Philippines Independence Day Parade in June. I  just wanted to write a quick post to show you what’s possible when you step out and get things going. A lot of  people wait too long. I’ve gotten opportunities that might have otherwise not been offered to me had I not started this website.

“Don’t say ‘there’s still time’ or ‘maybe next time’ because there’s also the concept of ‘it’s too late.'” – Ash Sweeney

You don’t have to know everything. Just start.  Believe in your capabilities and have faith in yourself. You have the knowledge. The only thing left is what you do with what you know.

Go. The greatest adventure in life is figuring out how much you can accomplish with what you have.

  1. Hi Amiel

    You have some great goals and I’m sure you are going to reach them because you are so smart and you are working so hard.

    Thank you for the inspring message! All the best 🙂

  2. Super pumped about where you’re taking this blog! Cannot wait to hear, read, and experience more through your words!

  3. Hi Amiel, You have achieved great things by taking action and not bothered by the fear. By sharing your work you are truly inspiring many like myself.

  4. Very inspiring message!
    I think like this as well. Always on the next step and starting with envisioning where I want to be in a month and a year. I believe it all starts with a vision, then plan, and action.
    I can’t wait to see where this takes you and others who are affected by your efforts.
    Keep it up and keep us posted!

    1. Oh nice, a similar soul! 😀

      Same! I have big plans for BB and, hopefully, I impact more people through it. Thank you for visiting!

  5. Excellent message on getting started now, most people never get started just out of fear. Good to know that you are seeing many more opportunities just from your website.

    almost didn’t get started because of fear. Anyways, gook luck and much success with your business

    1. Hey Jessie 🙂 Thank you! And, I agree, fear is definitely a stopper for most. What people need to realize is that there’s always going to be fear. It’s the way we respond that determines whether we win or lose. Best of luck in your endeavors as well!

  6. Very cool events you are planning for Breaking Boundaries! There are always a lot of questions when you are developing a project and you know what? The answers will come to you in good time. Just take one event at a time, and jot down ideas when you have them. Step by step you will check off that list of ideas and get things done.

    Glad you got to sit back and have some time to reminisce.

    Best,
    Grace

    1. Hi Grace! Thanks for the suggestions. 😀 I’m working on my top goals for 2017 now. I’d like to be able to look back next year and see how far I’ve come and what I’ve accomplished. It’s always so exciting to see how the year turned out!

      Thanks for stopping by,
      Amiel

  7. Hi Amiel

    1. Hi David!

      Thank you so much. 😀 It’s the belief of people such as you that drives me. It makes me happy that you can resonate with my mission.

      Thanks for visiting,

  8. Hi Amiel,

    Sometimes I still get overwhelmed with trying to figure everything out before I start something, and trying to have all the answers, which used to hold me back from pursuing opportunities. I would try to solve problems with what I knew at that moment, and if I didn’t have the answers, I would pursue it no further. I failed to realise that I would learn as I go, and that the answers will come. I am slowly getting better at recognising that I don’t need to know the answers to every little question or what if. The most important thing is action. One of my favourite sayings is ‘don’t let what you can’t do get in the way of what you can do’, and as you say, ‘the only thing left is what you do with what you know.

    Great post,

    Cheers
    Adam.

    1. Hi Adam,

      It’s definitely a process. Being able to take action despite not knowing everything is a lot harder than it sounds. I think this is where faith comes in- faith that you’ll figure it out come what may. Keep going despite the overwhelm that you feel. Soon, you’ll develop more confidence in the things that you already know.

      Thank you for stopping by!

      Your friend,
      Amiel

  9. Hey Amiel, I really like what you said here, “The only thing left is what you do with what you know.” I was recently thinking about the quote, “Knowledge is power” and I got to thinking that knowledge isn’t really power until you do something with it. Until you actually put it to work all it’s doing is taking up space in your brain. And sure, it might be useful at some point, but if you’re not doing anything with it now, then will you really do something with it in the future, or do you run into the concept of “it’s too late!”?

    The same thing goes with what you’re talking about here. The concept of taking a risk and doing something whether you feel like you’re ready or not. If everybody waited until they were 100% ready, then nothing would ever really get done. It’s all about taking that step, like you said, and beginning to move forward and to start figuring things out on the way. I feel like this is something I was missing until recently when I kind of started on my own journey of taking those first few steps, not really knowing if I was going to make it or fall on my face, but I’m glad I started.

    Thanks for sharing. Good luck on your projects.

    1. Hi JT 🙂 See, it inspires me immensely when I see people pursuing their goals even when they’re afraid or doubtful, so thank you for being an inspiration. I think people really miss out on the best learning experiences of their life because they don’t even take the first step. I do wish people would just go for it; I’ve always thought trying and failing is a lot better than never having tried. I’d like to know I, at least, took a shot. If I were to regret anything in life, I don’t ever wanna regret not trying.

      Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment! Best of luck on your projects as well.

      Your friend,
      Amiel

  10. I like it when you just talk to your audience like this. You seem to have so much smart stuff to say. You have your goals in line and are going after them. You go, girl.

    1. Hi Brent! Thank you. 🙂 I definitely have A LOT more work to do, but I’m grateful for the accomplishments we’ve had so far. Looking forward to achieving so much more through BB!

      Thanks for stopping by!
