Well, I don't know what I was REALLY saying to my team....but I do know that if somebody gave me a mic and asked me to share something that has truly changed my business and my life, I would say this:
***Get out of your own way!***
Like, legit. Do it. Get OUT of your own way. Stop throwing out negative energy, stop putting up blockers and defenses, stop building walls. Stop saying "Oh that won't work for me". Stop saying "oh that works for HER because she's blah blah blah." Stop FIGHTING the thing and just flipping DO the thing. Stop putting energy toward activities that get you nowhere.
Stop doubting, stop fearing, just. stop.
Stop. Take a breath.
Now, move out of your way.
Embrace your strength and power. Embrace what you CAN do and ROCK that. Embrace the challenges as OPPORTUNITIES. Embrace the plateaus as stepping stones (thanks for that, Shaun T) Embrace your strengths and your skills and your spirit and your goals and your dreams...and marry those with activities that move you forward. Embrace the THING and DO IT.
Best quote I've heard in a long time ---- Success is not an accident. Success is a choice. Are your habits on par with your dreams?
Mine weren't. I had big dreams and big goals. But I wasn't doing the stuff that would those dreams and goals come true. I spent waaay too much energy and time fighting the thing and being in my own way.
So.....coming at you from experience....if in this snapshot, I could share something that has changed my business and my life, it would be get out of your way, stop fighting, and embrace.
We are so much stronger and more capable than we give ourselves credit for being. Let your faith give you strength and embrace the skills and path God has given you.
Yes, we CAN do the thing and create the life we want to life.
Yes. WE CAN.
