So, I’m going to get a bit real with you guys.
Sometimes I’m a certifiable “L-7 weine”. (hopefully some of you get the Sandlot movie quote)
Well, if there is one thing that I’ve learned during this process of starting a business and this blog is that the only real obstacle I had to overcome was myself.
Overcoming yourself and your fear is a daily challenge. Every day seems to be a repeat of yesterday’s demons like “Groundhog Day”. I know that some of you can relate to that.
Some of you deal with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, overeating, or under-eating.
Others may be going through a break-up and have days where you just don’t want to get out of bed because you miss your girl. While some of you would give anything to have a girlfriend.
Some come from broken families, you may worry about repeating the past or the mistakes of your parents or siblings.
I can relate to some of those. The feeling of constant worry, the stress, the pain, the not knowing what to do or how to do it. Having to find a new job to pay bills, you’re wife is pregnant, or you don’t have insurance and/or your business is failing.
Or you don’t have a plan and when you finally make one you don’t think it will work or you finally work up the courage and it fails.
The cycle seems to just go on and on.
I was scared just like you have been, and I still am about certain things. The unknown is so scary because, well, it’s UNKNOWN.
I was worried that this whole adventure would be a waste of time, or a waste of money, that I wouldn’t make any money, that no one would care, no one would read the posts, or that I would get a bunch of negative comments and feedback. And yeah, all of that can still happen, but one thing I do know is that thusfar I have not wasted a single minute. I have loved every second of writing, researching, and helping others reach their goals.
Ya, I spent about a month trying to figure out a name for the website. Every time I finally decided on one I’d go back to purchase it, just to find out that someone had bought it the day before.
I know it sounds dumb, but it was stressing me out. I wanted everything to be perfect, which is a struggle I have in every aspect of my life.
Which makes me laugh because this blog certainly isn’t perfect.
What or Who is your Purpose for Overcoming
This is for you, and all I can really give is all of me, and I can promise you that that is exactly what you’re going to get. All I have, all I know, no secrets, no scams, no BS.
So, I guess what I’m trying to say is, GET OVER YOURSELF! And I mean that in the best way possible, do not let yourself slow you down.
Now if you’re in jail, strapped to a chair, or paralyzed then you play by some different rules. However, generally speaking you have all the power you need, to change your life and your circumstances.
Make a plan, plan to fail but never fail to plan.
If you want to feel like you have a purpose and you’re accomplishing something in life. Make a rudimentary plan and check the boxes off as you go. It can be as simple as:
-Go out and make a friend
I know to many of you this is just routine, for others every day is a battle. Make a simple plan, plan your work and work your plan. I promise that it works, it boosts your self-worth piece by piece.
Get going, you deserve it.
You are enough!
