Yes, I get it…
In fact, we all get it…
You do not want to be mercenary, you don’t want to be proud and most of all, you do not want to get it wrong.
Yes, you want to change the world but, tell me, how are you going to get there if you spend your every moment navel-gazing? Checking to see if your motives are on the right track? EVERY. SINGLE. MOMENT!
Oh my goodness, you had a thought there of making money! Now, you have to get clear again for the next few days before you can allow yourself to put your message out in the world! You do not want to sully the message now, do you?
Oh my goodness, you were proud of yourself for another second there! How terrible, you must now flog yourself into humble submission! (Maybe I exaggerate but do you do this?)
And so it goes on and days go by and no one hears anything from you until you think it is okay for you to start again.
And that is exactly what you are doing – Starting again all the time.
You get some momentum and then you doubt yourself.
You then retreat into over-thinking mode until the people, who were starting to get excited by your message, forget you – There are too many distractions, you know! They cannot be expected to stick with your flakiness.
Stop over-thinking everything!
Just stop it.
Do you have something you want to put out in the world? Yes? then forget all your thoughts about what the motives must be and just get on with it. Let the marketplace decide if they need what you have, instead of you. You are too close to the issue here and you keep doubting yourself.
Do you think that only perfect people change the world?
No, they don’t!
And do you think that if your message is amazing and wonderful and great that everyone will jump up applauding you on first pass? I WISH!!!!
Usually, that does not happen so if you are going to get perturbed every time there is nothing but tumbleweed in response to your deepest wisdom that you are sure everyone needs to hear, then honey, maybe you are not cut out for business.
Go join the other small people, waiting for perfection before stepping up to change the world around them.
Yes, I am being a little harsh.
It is just that I see you.
I see the power wrapped up in all that fear…
Fear of what people will think of you…
Fear of what God will think of you…
Fear of whether you are just deluded…
Fear of whether you are just too proud…
And all that fear does is keep you bound in a life you do not want.
And more than that, no one’s life is being changed because you are so fearful.
Do you really want this to be your story?
I certainly hope not because again, I see you and what is inside of you is awesome but you have the choice to let it out and to do the work to get it into the world. You have to believe it more than anyone else will at the start and then little by little, others will catch a hold of the vision and they too will run with it.
But it all starts with you!
You must choose to shut down the fears, the doubts, the worrying whether what you have is good enough, whether your motives are good enough, whether you are humble enough and all of that nonsense! Who told you that you had to be perfect to succeed?
And who told you that everyone will understand you?
It is more likely that people will put you down – even the well-meaning ones and it is for the same reasons that you do it to yourself. It is unknown and people get nervous of the unknown. They would rather live a safe life where they are liked by everyone, instead of stepping up into what most would say is ‘proud and mercenary’.
And yet, this is the real narrow path.
Not many walk this road because you have to face all these fears and keep moving forward and yep, it is hard!
You will have people question whether you are a good parent if you focus so much on your work (actually, you will be your worst judge!)
You will wonder if you are paying enough attention to your partner (your partner may not be on your side, either)
You will question all your motives and wonder if you should wait until a voice from the heavens tells you to go and you will have some ‘holy’ people tell you to do exactly that.
You will question and think and wonder…
And all the time, TIME is passing you by.
TIME – the only irreplaceable thing.
And more than even that, your product, your service, your message could all have been in the world, creating change in the lives of the people around you and yes, you could have been starting to create wealth for you and your family but no…
You are still over-thinking!
Waiting, Waiting, WAITING!
Enough. It is time to move. It is time for change, it is time for you to wake up to all that is within you.
Put it out in the world – Then you will start to see what works and what does not work. Some things you will refine as you get clearer, some things you will know cannot be refined because they are the heart of your message – You will ask your people to accept them or be on their way.
What I am trying to say here is that, it is in the action that you get clear.
You do not get clear on the fence.
You do not get clear doing all the same things you have always done.
Warrior, it is time to step up, stop over-thinking and get out there and serve someone.
Are you ready?
A few days ago, I did a free workshop on how to turn what you know into wealth. Do you have some skills, experience, story, knowledge that you know will help people in some way? then watch this now – Here it is
It is time to fight for, create the life, the business you want.
