You are the biggest thing standing in your way. Yep, it’s YOU. I promise you, there is absolutely no reason why you can’t achieve what you want to achieve. Not a single reason. Apart from what’s in your head, that is…
Our excuses for not doing things are often just what surfaces out of fear. Fear of failure, and fear of success. Big fat fear.
Our minds are like that Dr Pepper advert with the slogan “what’s the worst that could happen?” Cue lots of really terrible things happening but just out of reach of the person drinking the fizz. Bad sh*t happens anyway to all of us, so why not accept that and instead spend your energy focusing on building the life and business you want, rather than worrying about what might happen?
My clients have presented a multitude of fear-based reasons for not doing things over the years, including:
I’m too fat to do that
I’m too skinny to do that
I’m too old to do that
I’m too young to do that
I’m too poor to do that, it’s for rich people
I don’t have 10,000 followers so I can’t do that
I don’t understand the technology so I can’t do that
People who wear glasses can’t do that
Everyone will laugh at me if I do that
I don’t charge enough to do that
I’m not experienced enough to do that
I have too much experience and will be seen as a dinosaur if I do that
Everyone is much cooler than me so I can’t do that
I can’t do that because I am a woman (more on this in next week’s email!)
Can you see that pattern? All of these things are perceived issues and not actual real facts. They are all stories we tell ourselves to protect us from what MIGHT happen, Dr Pepper style.
But what if you sat with these feelings for a while and then realised that you’re not too fat/skinny/old/young/poor/small/tech-novice/short-sighted/scared/underpriced/inexperienced/experienced/uncool/female to do what it is that you want to do?
How would it feel to get out of your own way for once and do whatever it is that you want to do?
I tell you how that would feel…. TERRIFYING… but INCREDIBLE!!
So how about it? Give up the fact that you are the biggest thing standing in your way and just go for it instead.
