The other day, someone asked me what made me start my business. Here’s the short version.
Almost 5 years ago, I had health scare.
Before that moment, my life was going good.
But while I’d achieved a lot of success, and ticked all the usual “boxes” you “should”, I wasn’t living my potential - and I had a lot of dreams and goals I was taking to the grave with me.
Maybe you can relate.
Life is pretty good. It’s comfortable. You’ve been successful.
But there’s more within you, a desire, a dream, a goal you want. You’ve got potential that you haven’t fully explored yet and you know you’re made for more.
And it’s a little scary.
So it’s easier to put it on hold just for “right now” for when things settle down in life.
You know, wait for a “better time” when life is less busy.
Here’s the thing: I’ve been there too.
I’ve waited for “one day” and told myself that “someday” I would start a business.
It took me 8 years to let go of the excuse that I needed the “perfect business idea” to start.
I dreamed about living in Vancouver, and flat-out believed it would NEVER happen.
It took two round-trips between BC and Alberta, and more boxes, bottles of wine and friends than I can count to find a way to make it happen.
I imagined visiting Thailand, bought the guidebook and let it get dusty on my shelf for 8 years.
It took a cancer scare, the reality that I might only have a year or two left to live, for me to just book the damn trip and finally eat authentic khao soi and meet a real Thai monk, like I’d dreamed of for so long.
This is what I’ve learned - through my own journey in life and through the honour (yes, HONOUR) of coaching incredible women:
The excuses will ALWAYS be there.
Your excuse “I’m too young” will turn into the excuse “I’m too old”.
Your excuse of “it’s not the right time” will turn into the excuse “I don’t have enough time left”.
Your excuse of “I don’t know enough” will turn into the excuse “it's too late to go back”.
Your excuse of “I can’t afford it” will turn into “I have too many other expenses to ever invest.”
Your excuse of “they won’t like it/me” will turn into “I don’t even know what I want anymore.”
Or worse, “I don’t even know who I am anymore.”
Your excuse “I’ll invest when I have more money” will turn into the excuse “I have too many other expenses to ever invest.”
Your excuse of “I don’t know how” will turn into “I can’t do it.”
Let go of your excuses.
Because if you don’t, it will only turn into yet another excuse.
For me, it took a health scare. For others, it takes the death of a close family member.
But why does it have to?!
The truth is, it doesn’t.
Setting the intention, investing in yourself to do the hard work, and a really damn good coach (ahem, hello friend) can work wonders on those excuses.
Girl, I’ve got two spots available for one-on-one coaching this month, and then that’s it: there will be no more opportunities to work together privately for several months.
These spots are rare, and I know they will go fast. In fact, the first one went last week within hours of announcing it.
