This past weekend, my team hosted an amazing get together, where we enjoyed each other's company, ate a little bit, drank a little bit more, and really dove deep into our thoughts about our businesses.
I didn't know what to expect going into it, but at some point in the evening, we were asked to write down a fear we had in our businesses so we could throw them in the fire and release them! I hadn't ever voiced any fears I had, but I immediately knew what I wanted to write.
Without hesitation, I wrote that I was afraid of being too successful. I know it sounds crazy, but I have always had this fear of being too much for others or worse, not enough. And I think because of that, I tend to play small. So when I have something so amazing in my lap, I don't give it 100% or allow myself to reach full potential in whatever it is.
It sounds so crazy to say it out loud, or in this case, to write it out, but I feel so much lighter having it out of my subconscious and out in the open.
The reality is this summer has been hard. Like, nothing I ever would have thought I'd experience in my life hard. And while I tried my hardest to not let it affect my business, it has. I put a lot of things on the back burner because I didn't have the energy to focus on anything but figuring out my new reality and trying to maintain a sense of normalcy.
And let me just tell you, that makes it kind of difficult when you are building a business. I mean, duh.
And while I hoped and wished things would continue going well, they have drastically slowed down.
Because here's the truth: I can hope and wish all I want, but NOTHING is going to change unless I work for it! And NOTHING is going to change unless I embrace exactly where I am in life and KNOW, without a doubt, that I am made for greatness. It doesn't matter what has happened to me or how life has changed, I am the only one in control of my actions and what happens next in my business.
So I'm done sitting back, hoping and wishing for great things to happen. I am putting this out there so I have all of you as accountability partners! It's time to get to WORK! I was born for great things and to be wildly successful! So you better believe that is EXACTLY what's going to happen!
No more feeling sorry for myself, no more hoping for things to happen, just me picking myself up, dusting myself off, and moving forward...with HUGE goals in mind!
I don't know about you, but I am ready to WORK for it. I am ready to prove myself wrong! That I am ENOUGH and that I will never be too much for the right person, business, thing, etc.
Screw waiting for New Year's to set these goals! I am ready NOW!
Who is with me?
I hope y'all have a beautiful week! Embrace your journey, embrace where you are, but don't get stuck there! Don't get stuck just hoping and wishing your life away...WORK for exactly what you want!
With love and wellness,
