Entrepreneurial skills: It stops you from saying YES! to your BIG DREAM?

Self-Care for entrepreneurs / Thursday, April 4th, 2019

In this blog, I share an entrepreneurial skill that all entrepreneurs have and how you can be more aware of it.

Let’s say you want to start something new, launch a project or grow your business, – you get really excited about your project and believe you can do it, Actually, you’re ready to do it NOW!

just as you’re about to:

  • Send that email – which could secure the deal
  • Call that contact – who you know can help you
  • Hire a coach – to support and guide you
  • Make that investment – that will help you grow fast

….something stops you, you begin going through ALL the reasons why it won’t work, reasons like

  • Not having enough money
  • Not having enough time
  • Not being good enough
  • Not sure this will work for you right now

Fill in the blanks, something comes up that makes you not trust what’s in front of you and you STOP!

What is this and why does this ALWAYS happen?

This is resistance, it’s normal and guess what?We ALL get these exact same questions and excuses come up in our business and life at some point…just after we’ve hyped ourselves up, (I’m feeling it as I type right now) the R word comes up and It’s a beautiful powerful thing!

Here’s why, for me, It shows me that I’m about to do something that REALLY matters, something I care DEEPLY about, if you didn’t care about your mission, you’d feel nothing, what would you prefer?
indifference about your actions or a little resistance? 

I love the way Steven Pressfield put’s it in his book ’the war of art’ ’The more resistance you experience, the more important your unmanifested art/project/enterprise is to you – and the more gratification you will feel when you finally do it’

Do you agree?

Wouldn’t it feel amazing if you were able to identify your resistance and your excuses for what they are and not allow them to stop you from following through?

Here’s something to help you if Resistance is preventing you from following your desires.
Start developing a new habit around the area of resistance and decide on something you could do each day to take you towards your Big Dream!

This is why, in this months ’21-Day Gratitude Challenge’ – (we’re on Day 4 exploring Self-Gratitude) I created a Habit tracker to help you log how you show up for the challenge and start developing a Gratitude Habit.
You can do the same for any area of your life that you want to improve and have less resistance around.
