I read a quote the other day that REALLY stuck with me:
The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are so certain of themselves yet wiser people are full of doubts - Bertrand Russel.
Let's be honest. We're all wise and we're all foolish. All humans have it all.
But...his point around those that are wise being held back by doubts?
That was like a TRUTH that hit me hard.
I've met so many really wise, thoughtful, compassionate, interesting solopreneurs...
That are waiting for things to be 'perfect' before they can really put themselves 'out there.'
Before they're ready to bring on clients, make money, go LIVE on video.
Or, before they're ready to finally say YES to themselves and do the thing they REALLY want to do.
Like switch their niche, or start public speaking, or put the next business in place...
That thing that really makes their heart sing.
Instead, we'll say all those things like...
"We'll first I need to have this system in place...
Or I just need to see THAT amount of traction...
Or I just need to hear back from so and so...
Or take that extra course so I'm prepared....
Or get that certification...
Or finish my website....”
Friend...I know them all because I've done them all!
It's so funny how our minds generate these seemingly logical barricades that...
"MUST HAPPEN FIRST!"
Before we commit to what we really want.
I see it in a majority of people that I talk to...
Prospects that I connect with....
The old fear-based thinking that's trying to keep us away from our big, bad....
I'm laughing as I write this.
(If we ever work together, we spend a lot of time laughing, you'll see how funny some of this stuff is)!
Our brains are just confused.
A lot of the time.
Mine is too.
All the humans are.
When we're able to get REAL with the confusion.
When we're able to recognize it and see it for what it IS.
When we're able to make decisions based in excitement as opposed to fear.
As opposed to listening to the voice that says..."don't do it! for god-sakes, don't follow that dream! you're not ready. you're not capable. you stay right where you are! let's just eat bon-bons in bed all day!"
The people who make those excitement based-decisions...
Are the ones who receive results that are...
The people who say YES, even when that fear is telling them, "wait...nooooo!"
They create the clients.
Grow the business.
Make the money.
Impact the lives.
(What I often feel is the best of all)
Do the thing they are MEANT to do on this earth!
Those are the ones.
But best news is...
Are NOT just for them.
They're truly for all of us.
I'm talking to YOU!
This sometimes silly brain of ours just tends to try to convince us otherwise...
That's it's job.
It's literally doing it's job.
Is to rise above it.
Get the support.
So we can create.
Live in alignment.
Do the thing.
Be the person.
Help the people.
That's what I'm talkin' bout!
Here's to your next amazing step.
(Even though that funny mind of ours will tell ya not to take it) ;)
That's all for now. Rooting for you.
