You CAN do anything you want, you just need to be committed to your dreams and start now. (tweet this!)
I can’t tell you how much I put off because of fear or lack of confidence when I first started my business. Now keep in mind, I was TOTALLY busy every day in my business, but I was busy being busy.
I was afraid to actually believe that I could make a difference and really impact someone’s business.
I spent so much time questioning whether I was good enough, ready enough, sure enough. It was a vicious circle I was in and one I had to break out of and quickly.
But the reality is, I didn’t break out of it quickly. It went on and on until I finally had to “tame” the inner mean girl inside my head. I had to talk her down and stop her from running the show.
The reality is, if I hadn’t done that, I was NEVER going to have the business I so desperately wanted: helping women create businesses that light them up inside and allow them the freedom to run it anywhere.
I’ve always known that whatever I set my mind to I could achieve. But this time something was different. I was actually putting myself on the line. Prior to this I was going after a job, moving to another country, going after the 6 figure salary, helping others with their dreams, and kicking butt and taking names in all instances.
But now I needed to pull back the curtain and actually step out onto the stage under the spotlight – and that was a whole new feeling for me.
And to be perfectly honest it scared the hell out of me.
I am what I like to call a closet introvert. I adore my friends, but I hate large groups. I even had a moment prior to one of my birthday dinners out with friends that I almost didn’t want to go. My husband was like, “honey, these are your friends.” But for me, I hate being the centre of attention.
Here’s the deal. I had to dig deep inside. I asked myself loads of different questions. “How much do I really want this? How much do I want to help my future clients? Why the hell have I talked ad nauseam about starting a business only to fail out of fear? Do I not want this bad enough? Is this a joke?”
And the answers were very clear to me. I absolutely wanted to do this without fail. I knew I wanted to support women, I wanted to create this successful business, I wanted this no matter what. But I realized I was missing the confidence and belief in me to make it happen. So I had to hunker down and figure out what to do next.
Here’s the deal….
When YOU decide something MUST happen, it happens. There is no more questioning. (tweet this!)
I had to realize that there was no going back to Corporate. That ship had sailed. I was committed to getting myself out there so that I could start attracting my ideal clients and helping them succeed and making my business a success.
And the way I did this was by putting myself out there, creating content that was useful and worthwhile, being supportive, nurturing my list and constantly growing it and tapping into what felt good.
And MOST importantly I had to decide that my dreams, my desires were worthwhile and meant to be shared and meant to happen.
I had to make a commitment to myself that my dreams and my desires would happen no matter what. It wasn’t like it could happen, or it might happen. It MUST happen. I would do anything to make it happen. I became a dog with a bone and committed to making my dreams a reality.
This MUST happen come hell or high water was my mantra.
And guess what? Once I made this commitment to myself I started bringing in multiple 5 figure months. I don’t tell you this to brag, but I tell you this to share with you that I would NEVER be where I am today if I hadn’t made this commitment.
When I made this decision I started attracting my ideal clients every month. Do I still have a ways to go? You betcha. But am I on the right path? ABSOLUTELY.
I’ve made some big investments in myself and my business recently. I’ve even started outsourcing more because I am THAT committed to taking my business to a whole new level in 2016.
So I ask you, are you committed to your dreams or hiding and playing it safe in your business? Are you allowing your inner mean girl to rule and keep you from your dreams and desires. Are you caught up in overwhelm because there is just too much to do, or you aren’t sure what to do next?
If this is the case you MUST stop the madness and make a decision.
Commit like you mean it. (tweet this!)
Or stop talking about it and accept that you will NEVER get what you want. And that you are ok with the status quo.
Remember, you have the control. You are in charge.
Believe that you’re halfway there and you will be.
