What’s stopping you? This is a question that I have been asking myself a lot lately. What things, mindsets, people, and excuses are getting in my way and preventing further success? As I have shared in previous articles, busyness has been a huge distraction for me and I have worked hard over the last few months to step back, relax, and reevaluate where I am and where I want to go. As clarity starts to settle back into my mind, I now find myself stuck with a different problem: how do I start moving forward again? I have been pondering
Ever notice how those that speak the loudest always seem to be naysayers and complainers? You know who I am talking about – every business and organization has them. The people who always resist change, who can find the negative in any plan. They have an opinion about everything and seem to be most productive at destroying new ideas.
I know first hand just how hard being a small business owner can be. Some days, we all just feel like throwing in the towel. Everyone and everything seems to be coming at us all at once. Bills are due, the phone has been ringing nonstop but only with people looking to sell you things, projects are running behind, and you still have to find some time to make it to a networking event or two for some new client prospecting.
No one disagrees that as a culture we are too busy. Most people complain about how hectic their lives are and about how there is never enough time. Yet, despite this universal agreement, we only seem to get busier. Perhaps even odder still is the fact that, while we say we hate being busy, we simultaneously equate our importance in life based on how busy we are.
What’s holding you back? That is a question that I have been asking myself a lot lately. It seems like life can just start spinning out of control before we know it. Most of our time is spent just trying to figure out what direction we’re pointing. Yet, we all long for more. This longing turns into passion, but is quickly eaten up by frustration as the illusive “more” never comes.
