Today, I’m suggesting that
a) figuring out HOW to get to your goals is simpler than you think, and
b) figuring out HOW might not be the only thing stopping you.
Every year, we set these big goals (or every quarter or month or week or day), and every day we set ourselves a to-do list, and sooooo often we just don’t get that stuff DONE, we get crazy overwhelmed, and we just rewrite our to-do list for tomorrow and beat ourselves up for today.
We fluctuate between feeling SUPER positive about ourselves, our business, and all the rabbits frolicking in the fields and feeling SUPER negative about ourselves, our business, and our boyfriends who just NEVER freaking understand ANYTHING.
But sustainable positivity comes with belief. And that comes with clearing out all the fears.
We’ve all heard that building a business requires more mindset work than strategy. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the same is true in goal setting and getting that stuff DONE.
We’re walking around scared out of our skins of actually launching, of actually growing (or even officially STARTING our businesses), and – big deal – we’re struggling to figure out where to start!
Where do you even start when your goal is “launch your program in 2019” if you’ve never done it before? HOW THE HECK, SARAH ELIZABETH, you say, do you figure out where to start? And how do you know if it’s even going to work? Ain’t nobody want to waste their time any more!
So, as I’ve shared before, you will break your big goal down and down and down until you have really simple baby steps.
But then you’ll catch yourself procrastinating, getting overwhelmed, or whatever other behavior again!
And you’ll know it’s a belief problem.
So the question becomes HOW THE HECK, SARAH ELIZABETH, you say, do you start figuring out how to clear out negative beliefs and fears that are stopping you in your business (and life)?
The same way. By breaking it down, simply and clearly, into baby steps.
And here’s the final bit of reality for you.
You’re not going to fully believe you can grow (or start) your business, be booked out, launch your program, and make money, until you do it.
So stop waiting for belief to happen.
Set your goals (they don’t have to be your forever goals).
Figure out how to get there (doesn’t have to be perfect. Any strategy that you will commit to works).
And follow the baby steps you’ve outlined for yourself.
Give yourself a hug. Get a great strategy in front of you. A comforting cup of coffee. And keep going.
