I'm a big fan of listening to your gut wisdom when making decisions.
Whether you're considering joining Drew and I in our Write and Publish Your Book in 90 Days program or not, this insider tip will help you with any decision you're mulling over in your wellness biz.
What if you can’t hear your gut because you’re feeling the fear?
The fear that you might not be able to pull this off…
The fear that you might actually have a real impact with your book…
The fear that things will change for you.
Fear isn’t the problem.
If you’re a coach, consultant, wellness pro or solo-preneur of any kind, you gotta get used to feeling your edge.
That’s where the growth happens.
It’s not where you are cozy and comfortable.
So in this case, your fear is not a sign to turn back.
It’s a sign that it’s “game on.”
You want to listen to your fear, but you don’t want to obey it.
In my experience, your ability to handle this edge is so essential to your success.
Because the fear NEVER GOES AWAY. (Read that again!)
Every single time I try to do something new in my business it totally grabs me too.
But now I know it’s just part of being self-employed.
I bet you no one ever told you that.
I keep breathing, hire coaches, read things about other successful people (all the time!) and I use the fear instead of letting it have its’ way with me.
It’s something you get better and better at.
But it is absolutely essential.
In fact, so much so, that when someone is considering working with me privately, I always give them a deadline to make a decision, usually much sooner than they would like.
They usually balk. But I don’t care.
I know what they don’t know. And that is, without the ability to feel their edge and not turn away from it, than we’ve got nothing to work with.
Remember, when you're self-employed and sharing work with the world that is so close to your heart and soul, fear isn't a sign to turn back.
It's just part of achieving your dreams.
Here's to making your dreams come true.
