Some of the most frequent comments I hear when I'm working with a client on reaching their goals are "What if I don't achieve it? What if I'm dreaming too big? What if no one buys this?"
You get the idea.
When you're stuck in the "what if's" you're really just holding yourself back from making your ideas a reality. You're overthinking everything, doubting yourself and eventually, getting stuck.
But what if you take those "what ifs" and flip them?
What if your program is wildly successful? What if people love it and everyone loves it?
This is what I remind my clients...things don't need to be perfect. You don't have to have it all figured out. You just have to allow yourself to move FORWARD.
Now, what are your biggest "what ifs" and how can you flip them?
Here's what I find are the biggest "resistants" that are at the root cause of them:
1. Lack of clarity: You have to know what you're trying to achieve, in very specific terms.
2. Lack of confidence: So often our fears and doubts cause us to lack confidence in ourselves and our ideas, and this holds us back from actually moving forward.
3. Lack of competence: Not knowing how to do what we need to do, so we end up procrastinating and not getting anywhere.
Luckily, you CAN overcome these. Reach out for help with a coach or an accountability partner to get you moving.
Seriously, ASK FOR HELP! I know this was one of my biggest stumbling blocks when I was first starting out and I'm kicking myself for not asking for help sooner in my journey. If you find you're stuck in the what if's, let's chat! I'm positive we can get you off that hamster wheel and back to moving forward.
