I'm so in love with and in awe of my Rapid Results and coaching gym members... because each week, they show up with courage and candor and a daring sense of determination. Still, there are times when I get some raw honesty... when they admit to wondering,
"Am I ever gonna make it?"
"Is this really going to work?"
"Am I chasing a pipe dream, or what?"
This is NOT because they're not successful. In fact, the day I learned that my own marketing mentor had to "sell himself" on himself every day, I did a happy dance.
I mean, if this self-made multi- multi- millionaire had to sell himself on his success every day.... dissing the demons of doubt and second-guessing... who am I NOT to have moments like this? Who are you?
Here're some things I've learned along the way about these moments when you're looking in the mirror and BATTLING self-doubt.
1) Having these feelings is NOT an indicator of your impending doom, so don't give them that much credit! Usually, it means that you're out of your comfort zone... exactly where success is created.
2) Having these thoughts or feelings does NOT mean you need to change course or pull back. Businesses' high failure rate is largely due -- in my humble opinion -- to us giving too much credence to emotions and not enough to numbers. Don't make an "emotional" decision, if you can help it.
3) Your business is not like a cake... where it either "turns out" or "doesn't." Many times, the "END" goals you set for yourself just usher in bigger and more challenging goals... so it's really a course in development. So, CHART YOUR COURSE, CARVE YOUR OWN PATH, but then... be flexible...and GROW with the FLOW. =)
I hope you're having a great week! We still have all day today, and all day tomorrow to "make it happen" in our businesses... so let's get to it!
