Are you guilty of any of the following?
- ‘Analysis Paralysis’ – where you over analysis a decision that leads to you making no decision at all!
- But I can’t because..
These are all excuses keeping you stuck and holding you back because of the story you are running in your head bout yourself.
The thing is, to achieve anything in life; you have to act fast, once you have made a decision. If it felt energetically right at the time you made it, then just go for it!
Don’t then give your power away by asking a 100 hundred other people whether you should do this or that, because the more opinions you get, the more doubtful and confused you will be of your initial decision.
If it feels right – then just do it! If in doubt then, sleep on it. If still in doubt then ask someone who will be able to give you impartial advice and who has experience in what you are going through, because they have been there too.
The thing is friends and family mean well, but in business, they are not the ones to be giving you business advice unless they are running a business too.
Regardless of where the advice is coming from, ultimately it is has to be your decision and you following it through.
And for that, all you need is Courage – to make the decision, stick by it and then follow it through.
Now the mother of all excuses (and I should know, because I still suffer from it) is the “I’m not ready” excuse
Top Coaching Tip ->> START BEFORE YOU ARE READY!!
The truth is you are never going to be ready! So when the opportunities start coming in, you have to be ready to take them up even before you feel you are, before someone else steps in and grabs them from you.
However, not every opportunity will be right for you, so when it presents its self, you have to ask yourself if you are holding back because its not really right for you and your business OR are you holding back because you are doubting yourself.
Get yourself out there and make it happen, no matter how scared you are, because your success is at the end of your comfort zone!
I promise you that once you do, you will find that the expectation of what you were so scared of doing, is far greater than the actual ‘doing of it”.
So Darling, here’s this weeks Femme Entrepreneur Challenge:
1) Commit yourself to one action step that is out of your comfort zone, but nevertheless doable and that will propel you forward in your business.
e.g. Reaching out to a client or a business prospect that you have been putting off
2) Commit to going to a place or event that you feel is you are not ready for yet , or maybe reaching out to someone who you consider is ‘out of your league’.
You know, its not the fear of others judging you that is your biggest obstacle, its how you judge yourself that is stopping you getting ahead.
So please do yourself a favour and get out of your own way, because “what other people think about you is none of your business!” ☺
I am excited to hear what courageous action step you took and how you felt once you did it..!! 🙂
