When I was younger many people would say, “Wow, you’ve really got a voice!! What are you going to do with that voice?” I had great aspirations, just as I am sure you do. I found myself feeling deeply frustrated whenever that question was asked, and that what I was “doing” with my voice wasn’t coming fast enough, although I truly had many accomplishments I wasn’t giving enough credit to. I have since looked back on what held me back the most, aside from the music industry being much less accessible back then. I realized that the main person telling me I wasn’t good enough… was ME!
Why do we listen to these stories we tell ourselves? Why do we make excuse after excuse as to why it is too hard, unreachable, not for us? I have found that the difference between those who are successful, and those who are not, is simple.. Actionable Belief! Our success is a belief and a series of actions away. I love the quote by Tony Robbins, “If you’re in your head you’re dead.”
I believe, the more we go back and forth contemplating an exciting leap, that we know will make a huge splash in our lives or businesses, the more we crumble, and eventually back away completely. What if we made the decision and went all in? What does that look like for you?
