weekly welcome :: free printable!

hey, there – welcome back to scoutie girl!

need a little kick in the pants this week? i got creative this weekend and put together this printable for you, inspired by my post on embracing abundance. if you’re not in a printing mood, you can download the iphone wallpaper!

i believe that all of life’s great achievements begin with kicking down a door. it may be a personal boundary or one erected by society. your door may take the form of a seemingly insurmountable problem or set of less-than-ideal circumstances. or your door may be a personal situation that is holding you back. i’m not a big believer in “fate” or a “great plan” – the obstacles in front of me won’t come down until i bust through them on my own.

kick the damn door down.

it may be a cop-show, fast & dirty kick. or maybe it’s a kung fu roundhouse style kick. or maybe it’s a fly through the air in slow motion matrix sort of kick. but it’s time to put your foot to work!

download the slightly more work-appropriate “kick the darn door down” pdf.

have you been embracing abundance lately, focusing on what you have and what you can do to get what you need instead of what you don’t have?

i would love for you to share this printable with your own readers! please link back to this post: http://www.scoutiegirl.com/2010/04/weekly-welcome-free-printable.html instead of to the individual downloads. thanks!

  1. I feel like this post was written specifically for me! I had a rough week last week at work and I’ve been trying to figure out my next step…which you perfectly stated for me. i need to “kick the damn door down”!! thanks for confirming that for me :)

  2. Yay! I like this image of kicking the door down. I usually try to find keys for my locked doors but sometimes this (research/planning/waiting) is really just my way of “Not Doing” which is a blocked door in itself. No more waiting! Kicking it down!

    1. hey amber! i think your key analogy in contrast to my “kick” is brilliant. in fact, that might be another whole post in and of itself. of course, research & planning is important. but you can’t use that as an excuse not to act. i think that’s what i love about the web so much – the opportunity for research (which i love) is huge but in the end, you’re encourage to “launch early and launch often.” case in point, this print idea! i could have spent a week working on this and trying different textures, colors, fonts but there is always another day for that. i digress…

      thanks for your comment!

  3. What an inspiring post! There are times when I feel I need to take a step back and be grateful for what I have gotten so far. This is a lovely reminder!

  4. Thanks for sharing that Tara; it’s so great! I will keep it on my desktop so that when I start to feel overwhelmed and think “why did I think this was going to be such a good idea am I an idiot” I will look at those instructions and do what they say!

    Thanks again!

  5. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!! What an inspiration you are to me! I love reading your posts and am feeling so encouraged to make this work! I come from a family of very successful entrepreneurs and even though I would love to contribute my family’s finances, I have lacked the belief in my work to do so! Everytime I read your words, I feel an extra boost to make it work! To stop thinking of it as an expensive hobby and truly believe in myself! Cheers, Angela

  6. Oh poo!

    Let me know if you come up with one than says “dern”.

    But anywho,
    If my kids can’t use the word, neither can I. And we all have
    gotten soaped for such words. (yes, even mom).

    Thanks for the kick in the pants (er, um butt)!
