Some days it is really tough to be in business.
Can you believe we are already 4 weeks into the new year!? My goodness. January has gone by so quickly, hasn’t it?
We have 11 months of 2019 to fill with growing our businesses. There will be challenges just as there have been in the past.
Lately, one little phrase continues to show up around me. I say it. I hear others say it. I hear this phrase in my heart and in my head.
What I say to my clients
I’ve said it to clients over the past few weeks, and months.
Now, I say it to you:
Be Brave and even if you’re not, pretend to be. Just keep going.
You’re juggling a lot. There is always so much to do and as you finish this task, there is more coming at you.
You have demands from clients, from customers, and then family and friends – and if you’re like me there are cats who want their share of time and energy – children, dogs and what about that book you’d like to sit and read!!?!
Super important to take care of your own health and well being and if you are anything like me, there are days when you just want to hide under the doona or at least “work from home” so you don’t have to face the world.
Tough times don’t come out of ‘nowhere.’ They come precisely when you’re ready to grow and be more of who you really are. No matter what the challenge, you have what it takes to meet that challenge.
You are so much stronger than you think you are!
Just this week I have had conversations with 3 clients about this very topic – all facing challenges, feeling “crippled” by what is in front of them.
“Let’s take a look at this challenge and put it into perspective” is my response.
We then take a look at some of their previous challenges, how they dealt with those challenges and how they “came through” and managed to stay “on top”.
An hour later I had a text from one client saying “OK, I put on my Big Girl Pants and here’s what happened … I’m so proud of myself”
