We’re coming to the end of the 1st quarter and so far it’s been a wild ride (and we’ve only just begun). I’ve talked to many people who have seen lots of exciting new things this year. Alternatively, I have also talked to some people who haven’t quite seen the results they wanted; what I hear from them is, “I’m doing all the things, I’m working hard and I don’t understand why I’m not getting anywhere”
So, here’s the truth. I’m going to give it to you straight. To have a breakthrough year in your business you have to be prepared to give up the good to get to the great and get really comfortable being uncomfortable.
Breakthroughs are found in the unexpected. If you hang around in what is expected it is unlikely that you will be surprised in what you find. Sometimes this means pushing out of what’s comfortable, taking imperfect action, and putting ourselves and our message out there for the world. And sometimes, this means slowing down and finding our inspiration in the s-p-a-c-e between our incredible, brave actions.
If you aren’t where you want to be in your business ask yourself this question, “what am I committed to?” What are you committed to in your business? Are you committed to growth? Creating breakthroughs? Taking focused action? Creating a creative space? being courageous? Or, are you committed to staying comfortable, trying every random tactic and latest marketing fad, and working harder to achieve what you want and burning yourself out?
The results you have today and where you currently are in your business are a direct result of what you’ve been committed to. A result of the actions you’re taking, and how you are showing up.
Let’s shift this story a bit…
- What would you do if you knew you could not fail?
- What could you do if you started believing in you, stayed in your lane, and stopped comparing yourself to others?
- What would you do if you stopped listening to the negative voice in your head and started listening to the voice filled with inspiration in your heart?
- What would you do if you set an impossible goal and took small steps every day to accomplish it?
- What would you do if you had the space to make better things and turn your ideas into impact?
Start now! Get scrappy, get uncomfortable, and make space to make mistakes–and then learn from them and make things right.
Dive into the unexpected, push through what’s comfortable, slow down to speed up and find the inspiration in between your actions.
Make today the day to create the breakthroughs you’ve been looking for.
Above all else, keep shining your light!
