Do you struggle?
Are you struggling?
Have you struggled?
The thing is as humans, and as successful business owners we hold our struggles inside, we don't share them.
We are embarrassed that we are even struggling, so we hold on to them.
It's really important that you know that WE all struggle, and by sharing our struggles we not only reach and impact others who can relate, we also allow ourselves to be human.
I haven't done anything by myself, I get a lot of support from my community, mentors, and coaches.
Past collaborations, past partnerships and friendships have helped me evolve.
If you want to go far, you've got to do it with people.
One of the reasons why people sometimes don't take action is because they're overwhelmed.
There's so much going on, and they decide to take no action, right?
So excuses come up instead of taking action.
Then we start struggling because we have all these excuses and all these "Stories" and we aren't dealing with them. We hide from them and we let them stop us from moving forward, from taking steps towards growth.
One thing that Tony Robbins says is that people overestimate what they can do in a year and underestimate what they can do in 10 years.
That is huge.
How much do you want to do today?
Don't overestimate what you can realistically do today.
Just do the things that you can, as long as you take action and are willing to fail forward.
Because at the end of the day, failing forward really is the only way.
There's a lot of things that I have struggled with in the past.
I had to build on myself, so I could lean into the fear,
I had to embrace uncertainty and have a willingness to lose different relationships and parts of my life, as a result of a willingness to just bet on myself.
I had to set intentions and get serious about where I was struggling and I also had to be vulnerable with them.
Because when you set a serious intention, when you're willing to follow through, and when you're willing to step up, you now have ownership.
Now you've taken responsibility for the trajectory of your business, your life, your relationship, your goals.
When you share your struggles, when you share where you are, the impact will reach many.
It allows you to stop hiding, to step up and face your struggles so you can move through it and find growth on the other side.
