Lately I have been spending a lot of my time thinking about where I am vs where I want to be. I realize to get from point A to point B, I have to move. There is so much drive in me, yet most days I find myself lacking the motivation needed to grow.
I wake up with the best intentions and truly believe that today will be the day to do all the necessary things to help my business get to the next level. But then the thoughts don’t lead to the actions and before I know it I am crawling into bed feeling guilty because nothing was accomplished, my business is stagnant and I still want to grow, expand, network, market, but something keeps holding me back.
Fear, fear holds me back. I’m scared of failing. I’m scared of what people will think of me. I’m scared of judgement and scrutiny. I pick up the phone sure that I will make the call that will get me the new client and then before I can hit the numbers my brain takes over with all the what-ifs and then I freeze and tell myself I just need to reorganize my thoughts to make sure I know what I want to say before I call. I decide tomorrow would he better. Then tomorrow turns into next week, which turns into next month which turns into me writing this blog about growing because that is what I need to do.
I need to grow. Not just my business but my mind. I need to allow my mind to expand to the point that I am not scared to make the calls. I’m not scared to face new clients or share my products. I need to do the hard things when they come up so I can reap the harvest of the seeds I’ve sown.
What do you need to do to grow? What steps can you take to face your fears? I have been listening to podcasts, reading motivational books, talking to different people online and trying to do one activity a day that I am scared of.
This weeks challenge is find something, whether it’s a podcast, a coaching a book, maybe someone to follow on social media, that will help you start to overcome the fears that are holding you back from growing to the next level.
Choose one activity a day and do it. No matter how small an activity is, do it. Every day that you do an activity will give you the confidence to do more. Today I am writing this blog that I have put off for the last two months because I have let fear take my voice.
Growth will happen when you allow it too. You have planted the seeds now it’s time to water them and watch them grow. You can do this. I can do this. I would love to hear about the activities that you do. Tell me about it in the comments.
Face it…..Challenge it……Conquer it….
