Do you ever set yourself impossibly high standards and then give yourself a hard time because you haven’t lived up to them?

Well, I have… and this is the result I’m gonna’ share with you.

Watch the 2:53 minute video below!

 

I had said to myself that I wanted to do a Facebook Live everyday.

That was my high goal.

When it came to it,  the inspiration for something meaningful and valuable had not come to me.

And I was wasting time…

You know, racking my brains and then tuning in and trying to get something from my heart and it still wasn’t working.

I was beating myself up saying,

“You’ve got to do this”,

“You said you would do this, so, you have to do it.”

And what I actually did was I just let go of that.

I thought to myself, if the inspiration hasn’t come then I’ll just leave it.

I’m gonna just put it to one side.

Maybe I won’t do it once a day and that’s fine.

And then I got on with something else.

As I started to work on something else, having let go of that pressure, something just popped in.

And this is it. This is the valuable piece.

How often do we beat ourselves up, because we haven’t done what we said we would do?

I am hugely guilty of that.

I wonder if that’s you too?

How could you be easier on yourself?

What could you let go of…?

…. To make life easier, to make your work and your business easier?

What can you let go of?

And how can you let the lightness and freedom back into your business?

That’s my question for you and I would love to hear your answer so please do let me know!

Over to you:

Could lack of safety be losing you clients?

safety

I knew this business owner was fun, friendly and really good at what he did.

I was curious to find out more and suspected that I’d find his work really useful, but I couldn’t quite bring myself to arrange the call.

Every time I thought about talking to him, I got another round of internal chatter about why that wasn’t a good idea.

I told myself:

“I won’t know what to say”

“I can’t quite put into words what I’m struggling with, and I don’t know what to ask so I don’t want to waste his time”.

“He might try to sell to me and I won’t be able to get out of it.”

“I’ll feel awkward and I won’t know how to end the conversation.”

Out trickled an endless stream of my own ‘stories’.

It ended up with me not contacting someone who could quite possibly have helped me with something in my business.

Do you recognise yourself in this scenario?

Can you understand how someone might feel that way?

But wait, there’s more!
