Are you unhappy with your current work situation? You want to start working for yourself but are afraid to take the leap. The financial costs and overhead are overwhelming, causing you fear and anxiety.
There are a million reasons why you have told yourself – I can’t do it . . . I am not ready . . What if I can’t make it on my own? Everyone will think I am a failure.
You have always dreamed of working for yourself. You have developed a stellar professional reputation and an influential professional network. You have a list of clients that would gladly follow you and gladly refer you to their network.
Or, how about this.
You are single and want to get married but deep down inside you believe no one will ever marry you.
Your inner critic says you are too fat, too old or too intimidating. You believe your inner critic. Your belief will determine how you carry yourself. The way you carry yourself becomes the non-verbal manifestation of your inner dialog. That self-manifestation will frame others’ experience of you. Then, unfortunately, your belief becomes your reality and . . . no one will commit to you on that level.
Unless you allow the dream to show up and consider all of the reasons why your dream of starting your own firm or getting married is possible, you will never see those dreams come true.
Take Action and Get Support
If you want to have a different life next year, take action now. Yes, now!
Amid all the busy-ness this time of year brings, take some small daily action now. Even if that action is simply to allow your dreams, ideas even your hopes and wishes to spend time hanging out in your head. That alone is action.
Then, think about what and whom you will need to enlist to support you in having that dream or idea become a reality.
Do you need someone to help you get clear and strategize?
Do you need someone whose only agenda is to reinforce that you can do this?
That person may be a friend, family member or a professional coach. Just ensure you get the support you need.
My Rapid Clarity Coaching Process can help you learn how to make your dreams come true in 2018.
