WHEN I FEEL LIKE IT
When I made the decision to be an entrepreneur, the resounding perk was flexibility. I had the option to opt out of work when I didn’t feel like it, and opt into work when it was convenient for my mood. This in itself was the entrepreneurial dream; freedom! Freedom from the mundane, and ordinary unpleasantries I associated with “working for someone else”. Over the years I learned (albeit the hard way) that being an entrepreneur is all about serving others’ needs, and my self-defeating mindset around commitment was the one thing holding me back to my entrepreneurial freedom . It was easier to blame other things when my business revenue was low rather than take full accountability for the reality of my lack of consistent actions.
Let’s start looking at consistency through the lens of commitment. When you fully commit to following your plan, your actions create consistency.
Does the thought of consistently going “ALL IN” result in sweaty armpits, self defeating thoughts, and a quiet riot inside your mind?
Trust me, I faced this, too! But here’s the deal friend: you must give up the thinking that NO LONGER SERVES YOU! I repeat: GIVE UP YOUR STORY!
It’s time to face your stories as “thinking”, and remember you are not your thoughts. As my teacher, Baron Baptist says:
What are you a yes for?
What lie must you give up to live your yes?
YOU ARE READY NOW!
I am a yes for: _____________________
I give up the lie that I am not: _____________________
I AM READY NOW!
