I want to share with you about what’s currently happening in my life.
After 3 years of wanting to move out of the house I had lived in for 17 years, it finally happened. And as a result of that process, I have grown a lot and I now know who I am and what I want in deeper and more profound ways.
Moving is not fun!
But what is gratifying is envisioning what I want and taking the steps every day towards that.
My wife and I had no intention of buying a fixer-upper, but when we both saw the house we wound up buying (and because of our schedule we saw the house separately), we could immediately envision what the house wanted to be and what we wanted to become in it.
This was OUR house. We wanted it and it wanted us.
Is this a “they lived happily ever after story”? Not exactly.
Now that we are moved into OUR house, the real work begins. Every single room needs work and every single room is screaming at us “Please get me done first.”
We do have a vision and our place is going to be incredible in six to twelve months. But now it’s about taking small steps every day to move the project forward. And as I take steps forward, my vision is starting to change, too. And it’s not easy. It’s challenging my wife and I every day.
And it reminds me what it was like for me when I was starting out in my business. I thought that I knew what I wanted, but with every step I took forward what I found would surprise me and almost never looked and felt like I envisioned. It felt like so many pieces of my business (just like the rooms in my house) were screaming at me to get them handled NOW.
- Do I have my niche down?
- Are my packages and offerings attractive enough to
- Do I have a sustainable marketing system that will bring
me income every month consistently?
- How do I talk to my potential clients in a way that will
have them sign up with me?
Will all these pieces align together and create a sustainable business where I get to positively impact the lives of others and help me create the lifestyle I want for myself?
Now a few years later and my business is flourishing, all the pieces are aligning and my impact is growing.
But I am reminded with my house project of how unsteady I felt in the first years of my business.
So if you’re feeling unsteady and not sure if it’s all going to work out for you. You are in good company. You’re supposed to feel that way.
THIS is the reason why I love to coach, train and mentor. When you’re feeling unsteady, when you’re doubting whether your vision will come alive in your business or you’re unsure of how everything you do in your business comes together, I am sure.
I’ve been there and I know the way.
