I used to believe freedom meant not having to do anything I didn’t want to do.
I now see freedom as being willing to do whatever is necessary to have the business and life I want, through the resistance.
Why this change in perspective?
Time and time again as I’ve worked with people, I’ve seen that the very thing we don’t want to do is exactly the thing that is blocking the realization of all our dreams.
Here’s the truth: The hard thing you are avoiding doing is the ONE thing you must do to get to the next level.
Whether that thing is hiring a team, or having a difficult conversation with an existing team member, or getting your agreements documented, or getting your corporate entity set up correctly, or getting insurance, or hiring a bookkeeper, or paying back-taxes, or filing late returns.
There is something that needs to be done in your life or business right now – and deep down you know what that something is – but you’ve been avoiding it because it likely seems really hard.
This avoidance is the beginning of a destructive pattern that is holding you back from experiencing the success, prosperity and FREEDOM you desire.
So, how do you easily and gracefully break this pattern?
First, you have to be extremely honest with yourself. Where are you avoiding? Awareness is the first step.
Whatever comes up for you, write it down right now.
Then commit to doing whatever it takes to get this handled in the next 30 days.
If you aren’t sure what you’re avoiding – or the list is so long that you’re immediately overwhelmed – I want to make sure you get the support you need…
