Ever feel like the woman on the left – biting your nails nervously when you think about running your own business? Good thing you stopped by today, it’s a Tuesday pep talk!
Personal and business get so intertwined when you’re a solopreneur – personal progress IS business progress and growing as a person is required to grow your business…
My greatest challenge in business isn’t marketing, or my technical services, or writing… it’s doing the work to be a better, stronger, bolder version of myself and to have faith and confidence that I’ll succeed.
So if you find it challenging, too, know that you aren’t alone! And you can do it.
Past failures don’t matter unless you allow them to. Forget the people who discourage you, who tell you you aren’t “enough” whatever (smart enough, strong enough, talented enough) to succeed. You can learn whatever you need to know as long as you’ve got determination to make it happen.
Don’t compare yourself to others. Compare yourself to the former you. If you’re better, smarter and stepping up in a bigger way than you were yesterday, that’s success!
Celebrate every success – even the small ones. Build on those. Taking small steps in the right direction is better than taking no steps because we’re afraid of the big ones. Start as small as you need to and it’ll get easier to take bigger steps.
One step, one choice, one smart move at a time we can do it.
“Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you may have one foot on the brakes. In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain your old pain. The energy it taeks to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life. What is it you would let go of today?”
