It’s early here in Pebble Beach. It’s still dark outside, the candles are lit and I just completed my morning practice.
What I wanted to say to you is while we may not have met personally, or it may have been a long while since we have connected, I feel as though I know you.
That’s because we are not different, you and me.
While I have been at this “business of growing businesses” for 32 years, now, you and I are very much the same.
Every morning, when I wake up, I am met with the same emotions you likely experience as you start your day.
It’s an interesting mix of excitement, anticipation, hope, overwhelm, self-doubt and OK… I’ll say it… shear panic.
This business of building a business is not for the faint of heart.
It requires that we tap into all the best parts of ourselves. It calls us to step into the person we CAN be rather than the person we can easily default to when life feels like too much.
My confession to you is this…
Today, I am embarking on a 7 day journey of discovering the 7 truths and 7 principles, not for you, but for me.
I wanted to make sense out of my own entrepreneurial journey that spans 32 years, 7 businesses and more personal transformation than your average person could fathom.
I wanted to look back and see what was present in my life and business when I was kicking ass and achieving my goals, and what was missing when I was so wrought with fear and self-doubt that I wanted to throw in the towel and go work at Starbucks.
So, why am I committed to total transparency and sharing more than I should probably share?
- I want you to know that you are not alone and whatever you are feeling during this process of growing your business
- I want you to understand why you are experiencing what you are experiencing and find new ways of navigating what will inevitably come up
- Finally… I want you to feel inspired to keep on keeping on. To show up, to take the risk and to be OK with whatever comes from your efforts
Because what matters is that you are showing up, taking action and giving this “business building journey” your best shot, knowing that no matter what happens, you will be a better person for it.
Because no matter how many years I have been at this…
No matter how many goals we’ve met or challenges we’ve overcome… some days I get up feeling just as scared, overwhelmed and doubtful as you may feel at times.
The difference is, I’ve got strategies to overcome it.
I’ve found ways to move through the fear, overwhelm and self-doubt, into a place where I remember who I am and why I am here and am inspired to take courageous action.
So are you with me?
Are you willing to give yourself 7 minutes every morning for 7 days in a row, with the intent to shift how you see and show up in your business.
I hope so.
Because if you do, I promise… on the other side you will show up more powerfully, be willing to put yourself out there and in doing so, you will experience the shift that needs to take place to have the business I believe you are wanting.
