The hardest thing about starting again, growing a business, deciding to do something new and take a risk - is seeing other people doing what you aspire to do and seem to have it 'all figured out' and 'everything just working out' and THAT can stop you in your tracks before you have even got started.
After a client call today I am so inspired to share this message with you all!
1. There is always more to the story
No matter what you see at the front of the scene, there is always more going on behind it.
When you see others around you doing it and succeeding - put things back into context.
Do you know what that did to get there?
Have you done what they are doing?
Are you hanging out where they are?
What else do you know about their life and story?
When you see the highlight reel, you have to dig deeper and take some time to see what went in to this success and then focus more on the journey and how you can get there too and less time thinking that you won't make it.
You can do anything. With the right strategy and mindset.
So starting thinking about your journey and how you can travel along your journey and reach your own success.
2. Have you thought about the journey or just the outcome?
When you have a goal don't become so focussed on reaching it, that you don't enjoy the process.
The outcome is what you work towards and aspire to, but that does not mean that you forget the journey, ignore the lessons along the way and put so much pressure on yourself that when you reach the goal, you're too exhausted and mentally drained to enjoy it.
Use the journey and take the time you deserve to learn from the lessons and acknowledge the progress you are making along the way.
That way, when you do reach your outcome and goal - it feels AMAZING and not like a big fat slog!
3. Why does this change your plans or emotions?
If someone else has done it - that should empower you to know that IT IS POSSIBLE!
If someone else can do it - so can you!
Don't let the triumph of others make you feel inadequate, let their success give you a boost in knowing you can do it too!
Just because someone else is successful and happy, it doesn't mean that you can't too.
So don't press pause on your goals and dreams, just because someone else has achieved theirs. You are the only one that can choose to keep going to choose to feel defeated.
Your successes are waiting for you - you just have to keep going to reach them. Irrespective of other peoples success.
FOCUS ON YOUR JOURNEY, YOUR OWN LANE AND WORKING TOWARDS YOUR GOALS EVERYDAY.
