Today’s episode is all about busting through a limiting belief that you may not even know you have. In fact, this very belief may even be holding you back from greater success. Here it is… So many people think that we’re supposed to feel good ALL the time on the quest for entrepreneurship. OK, I’m not saying I want you to feel crappy about it, but here are my thoughts on it.
The journey of entrepreneurship isn’t supposed to feel good. I know it sounds crazy, but full honesty, a large portion of the time we don’t know what we’re doing, it feels clunky or awkward and we fail a ton! But unfortunately, we all live in the era of social media where we all see everyone’s highlight reels. I’m all for this, because I feel like I’m pretty happy most of the time, but I also know that I feel frustrated, under-motivated or have a ton of work to get done – and I try to share that with my followers as well.
“The wins are not the entire picture of reality.”
I feel it is so important to understand the full circle of entrepreneurship – the ups, downs and in-betweens. The problem is that we’ve all been conditioned to think that when we mess up or haven’t gotten it all figured out we think we’re doing it wrong. Hint… You’re NOT!
Reality check. Think of the person you love to follow on IG. If you think they have X followers, now cut that in half to get the real number. Don’t get discouraged! You’re figuring it out just like the rest of us. Go into things without abandon and try new things without fear of failure.
“If you’re not failing at all, you’re probably doing it wrong.”
Let’s go into 2018 by getting real and sharing all side of entrepreneurship. Use this mantra as a reminder!
“It’s OK to be silly, to feel silly and look silly.”
