As a business and money coach, my clients often tell me how they find themselves investing in things that don’t turn out the way they wanted. Either because they don’t end up doing or completing a course they paid for, they invest in something that wasn’t a good fit for them or they agree to take part in projects that don’t end up meeting their expectations. This can lead to feelings of frustration and lack of confidence in our role as entrepreneurs.
Recognizing the reasons you procrastinate and how to stop doing it can be a life changing process. So today I want to talk about why you might find yourself slacking off, often at the worst possible time. And as an entrepreneur your success depends upon your ability to get things done and when you have a great idea and yet you aren’t taking action it is time to take a new approach!
Have you had the experience of creating a product that didn’t work out when you tried to sell it? Like no matter how hard you tried, people weren’t buying? What happens when the product is you and you aren’t “selling”? Scrapping YOU is not an option and you know you have to figure it out one way or another. Today we’ll look at the challenges that come up and what to do about them when creating the brand called “YOU”.
Are you one of those who really want to begin a meditation practice but struggle with being consistent with it? Perhaps you’ve read the articles about how important it is. How so many successful business tycoons swear by it and credit it for their success in life. How it can change your life for the better.
One of the easiest ways for business owners to get stuck in place and sabotage their own success is by believing they don’t have the resources they need to do the things they want to do. Just like all seven these mindsets, this way of thinking comes from a place of lack and scarcity. Believing that you are not good enough to do, have, and be what you most want and this way of thinking must be stopped before you can fully experience what it means to be living in abundance.
Our conversation meandered into the topic of fear, doubt and uncertainty — more mine than hers. I found myself sharing how difficult it can be to run a start-up business and how slow progress seems to be when you are trying to create something new in the world.
If you’ve ever wondered what it takes to create massive wealth while increasing your sense of fulfillment then today is your lucky day. You see, I’ve devoted much of my life to solving this complex equation and for many years the answer remained elusive.
This sort of question governs me so much it has become part of my daily meditation practice. Not because I want lots of stuff but because this question keeps me on track to creating the life I want to be living. It helps to ensure my actions are in alignment with what’s most important.
It’s hard to believe only a few years ago I’d never worked with a coach nor did I ‘get’ what they did for their clients…
From my vantage point, it wasn’t necessary because I’d always been good at figuring things out on my own. Plus it seemed expensive and when you are starting a new business money is tight.
If you believe that anything is possible, you create an internal narrative that supports that idea. Belief invites you to ‘be on the lookout’ so you can gather evidence to support your theory. Once confirmed you begin to weave the belief into the pattern, fabric and garment of your life.
