3 Questions you need to stop obsessing over
Having your own business brings up all sorts of stuff…
…including a ton of excuses well disguised as ‘very real’ questions or thoughts that you simply cannot get your head around and prove to be a wonderful waste of your time, energy and confidence.
Look, we all do it, so don’t beat yourself up about it, it happens, be kind to that overworking brain and vision of yours.
And, I’m here to tell you that you can let go of these 3 main ones right now:
1) What do I do next, this, or that?
You can get stuck a long time in indecision. I totally get it. The thing is, the longer you wait, the longer you wait and the longer it takes to see any results (yeah, I know, you’re kind of hoping to see results before having to do the actual work/make the decisions, right? Yeah, I hear ya).
The answer to what to do next?
Take the path of least resistance.
Then do the other thing.
There you go.
2) Believing your business is ‘different’.
Look, we all want to think that our business is unique. And yes, yours probably does have some elements that make it different to what’s out there. But when it really comes down to it, it has to be said, nothing is that unique. Most things have been done before.
So don’t get hung up on your business being so different and therefore having a particular set of challenges, because though that may be a wonderful excuse for holding back, I’m not buying it (and no one else is, literally, they’re not buying your programs because you’re not getting out there)
3) You’re feeling overwhelmed.
Ah, our old friend overwhelm.
Yes, the struggle feels real. You’ve opened up a Pandora’s box and the more you find out, the more you realize you don’t know and the more you need to learn.
I get it. Really, I do. I’ve been there, and so has every other business owner.
Thing is, that’s what happens in any area of life when you decide to expand and grow. You cannot grow without big emotions and feelings coming along with that.
So, what now? Let the overwhelm be, accept it’s there and it’s part of the course, now put all the information overload away and take the next 3 steps that YOU need to take. Not what everyone else is doing. What YOU need to do.
I hope that this has brought you some element of relief and breathing space. My wish for you is that you take that next step, and then the next. You’ve got this, just don’t over think it.
