As a Confidence and Business Coach to entrepreneurs and coaches who wants to remove emotional and mindset blocks so they can open the pathway to more income and success, so many of the people I work with are sabotaging themselves.
But they are not the only one sabotaging themselves, so many of you are saying I want to start a business or I want to be charging more for my coaching or the work I do, but I can’t get myself to do so or I want to be serving more people or share my message but you keep getting in your own way…..
Stop doing that. You already have life punching you in the face, you don’t need YOU to be delivering the punches. So here are a few things to do to get out of your own way:
1. You know what you want to do, but you procrastinate and you just can’t get yourself to execute on the plans or ideas you have.
I remember I struggle with that for sometime. I wanted to do that video but I kept putting it aside telling myself that ‘tomorrow’ I will get it done. But tomorrow never came.
HOW TO FIX THIS:
Just Do It. Nike knows exactly what they are talking about when they said ‘Just Do It”. Why? Because if you listen to your feelings you will never do the things you want to do. So stop thinking about it or waiting for ‘someday’, just do it.
You want to start that business but afraid that it will not work out: take the first step. That first step could be getting a domain name or write a business plan then you keep taking the next best step.
2. You often say to yourself ‘I don’t feel like’. You keep giving into your feelings.
WHAT TO DO:
Here’s the thing guys, at the end of your feelings is nothing good. “I don’t feel like it so I am not doing it”. Who ever feels like doing what they should be doing? Most days I don’t feel like getting up out of bed at a certain time, but I know that in order for me to succeed I have to pull myself out of whatever funk I am in. So here is my advice, do the opposite of what your negative feelings are telling you to do.
Don’t feel like doing that video? Do it.
Here is another thing you can do: GET EXCITED!!!! Yes you here me. Many times when I don’t feel like doing something I get excited. I make some noise. Jump around. Laugh like I am crazy. Or I shout YES! YES! YES!
Doing anyone of these always get me out of a funk. After I do anyone of these I just go and do the thing I never felt like doing.
3. What will happen if you don’t do it?
If you take that action, who will you be letting down? Let me give you an example: I was afraid of publishing my first book An Empowered Life, and for many months I kept the book idea to myself and when it was published I was afraid to market it. But when I finally had the courage to let people know about my book, I had pastors telling me that my book changed many of their members lives. I had people who I never knew telling me about the breakthrough they received from reading my book. People were inspired, empowered and had their lives changed just by reading my book.
What if I never published my book? They would not have received the breakthrough they needed.
Whose miracle are you holding in your hand?
Look, I know how you think your business is all about you, but here is the fun fact: IT IS NOT ABOUT YOU. It has never been about you. Your entire life is not about you.
You were born to be a miracle to someone that needs a miracle.
WHAT TO DO:
So here is what I want you to. Make two list. List all of the things you want to do on one list. On the other list, write down everyone who you will be letting down if you don’t do the thing(s) you want to do. If you don’t start that business, write that book, start that podcast, raise your prices,create that course/product, who will you be letting down?
For me it was my mom, brothers, niece, my grandparents who recently died, my future kids who will not know what it is like to have a dad who showed them what it means to fiercely go after his dreams, and YOU GUYS who are reading this post write now.
