I want to tell you a little story of what I did last weekend.
I was in Los Angeles at a spiritually-based personal growth workshop called Living from Truth. I guess you could call me a workshop junkie. I love the process of continuing to discover who I really am at a deeper level. I also find it really useful to get away from my regular routine to allow myself to truly see my habitual patterning and my thought process. And I definitely relish spending time with others who are seeking similar breakthroughs as I do.
I was there at the workshop with my sweetie, Gia (love doing this work together with her). On the last day of the workshop during one exercise, she told me that the thing she really loves about me is my confidence and fearlessness. She said that I do things I have never done before all the time without letting anything stop me.
That was incredible to hear and I still have such warm feelings over that.
But heres the reality: I am scared s**tless all the time.
I do things that will move my business forward. I move ahead on my path despite the fear. I am often afraid, resistant and really uncomfortable moving into that place of total unknown. But guess what: I do it anyway. I do not let fear stop me. I allow myself to be in that place of total discomfort.
Yes, I often don’t feel confident in my abilities (despite appearances!).
Yes, I want to abandon ship. Yes, I doubt myself along the way.
But no, I don’t quit despite it all. And I definitely do my best to not get in my own way.
So I ask you: What are you avoiding that if you did today would move your business forward or your life in the right direction?
Take a moment to really ask yourself this question. You know the answer. You know you do.
And now go do it. Do it despite the fear. Do it because you have doubts that you can.
Because when you think that you cant then you simply must.
I’d love to hear from you. Leave a comment below and let me know what you are avoiding and what you are going to do about it.
Remember, your business doesnt grow unless you grow (another little nudge – wink wink)
