When entrepreneurs start their businesses, they tend to have big dreams.
Some even write down their goals and create vision boards.
However, it is time to take it a step further.
My hubby was on a coaching call the other day and I overheard him tell the person to write down their goals.
Seemed like a pretty effective strategy. As I kept listening, I heard him tell the person to write down below that goal why they will quit and give up on their dreams.
Immediately my ears perked up. It was pure genius!
My husband had the insight to address the elephant in the room.
Setting goals is not enough. You must be willing to do what it takes.
Most small businesses fail. They just do.
Some people blame it on a lack of funds, the economy, or costly mistakes that are part of the learning curve of growing a business.
What most people actually fail at is realizing that both successful and unsuccessful businesses fail.
Failure is not the opposite of success, it’s part of success.
So back to my hubby’s coaching call.
He really helped the person navigate his thoughts and feelings.
Would he quit if his spouse disapproved? If he was rejected by a customer?
Would he quit if there was too much work involved?
My husband wanted to be clear before they really got knee-deep into the strategy.
In the process, not only did my hubby learn the person’s perception of his breaking point but he had the other person commit to keep going- even when things got tough.
Can you imagine writing down your goals and below them writing that you will quit your business and your lifelong dreams if ___________________?
That blank space could be anything!!
My question to you now….. Are the reasons you are not building your dreams worth it?
Are your fears worth sacrificing your life over?
You’re not alone.
Some people are afraid to host a webinar.
Others are afraid they will look like a “show-off” if they promote themselves.
A few even have a problem with making the income it takes to make their dreams come true- leaving them torn between two realities for life.
Are you sure you really want what you said you wanted?
Do you really want to help people around the world?
Did you mean it when you said you wanted to give your family an even better life?
Only you can answer that.
I encourage you today to write down why you will quit and commit to your goals.
If you can’t think of any reason why you will officially quit, then think about why you are not living it 100% now.
What is holding you back today? When you know that, you will know what to work on in your business.
I believe in you.
Many lives depend on your expertise to live fully and happily.
Don’t hold back.
You can have it all-no excuses.
