Welcome to day 29 of “30 Days Behind the Curtain with Jane.” (Almost there!)

ThumbsUpDo you ever wake up with a sinking feeling that everything you are doing to grow your business is either off the mark or failing miserably? In the early morning hours (or 3 am at times) do the “shoulds” or “should haves” feel so overwhelming that you are ready to throw in the towel?

If yes, you are not alone. The truth is, I have these “I suck” mornings just like you. After 28 years of growing businesses and more successes than I can remember, there are still times when my alarm goes off and I feel so “off my game” that I simply want to pull the covers over my head and sleep all day.

I share this because just recently, someone in my tribe shared that they didn’t think I was being very vulnerable in my posts.  My sense is that they hadn’t seen my Website Shame or Dealing With Doubt, where I was honest about my journey. None the less… point taken.

But what if, dear reader, this is how I am wired? What if after 28 years of stepping outside my comfort zone and failing more times than I care to remember, I am wired to focus only on what serves me?

As I look back over these 28 blogs, I see a reflection of how I live my life. In each one I allowed 10% of my attention to go toward the problem and 90% of my attention to go toward “what I did to turn it around.”

I know to some this may feel like a “Polly Anna” approach to life and business but I’ve got to say… it’s working for me! There is no way I could take on the projects and goals I set and face as much rejection and potential failure as I do without standing in a place of possibility. Do I find myself sometimes paralyzed by doubt, fear or flat out overwhelm when I look at the magnitude of what I take on? Absolutely! But I don’t stay there long.

Perhaps what makes me a little different than some are the glasses through which I see my life and what’s before me. I can remember as a teen girl we were asked to write what we wanted our epitaph to read.  I wrote… “Here lies a girl who spent no energy on the wall in front of her so she would have plenty of energy to go over it, around it or under it.” Interesting intention for a girl of 17, don’t you think? ;0)

So as you peruse my blog entries from here on out, know that I am just like anyone else… working courageously through the “stuff” that comes up on the way to something big, meaningful and fun.
