If you are anything like I was when I was first starting my online business and I was still fully employed, you probably hate your job. I hated my job!
I didn’t have the freedom that I wanted to have. Everything was on my employer’s terms - when I had to work, when I could leave, when I got paid…
It wasn't the freedom life that I wanted. I wanted to be able to live life on my own terms. Maybe you are also feeling the same way?
If you are at the stage I was at then, then you probably worked out that becoming your own boss is the only way you will be able to create that freedom lifestyle you desire. It is the only way that you are going to actually dictate the terms on which you live.
Basically, I’ve had plans to start this big project and I’ve literally been resisting it for months.
Maybe you’ve been seeing me post, like, “There’s this BIG THING coming!” ... and then it just hasn’t felt right so I’ve not launched it.
There were some legitimate reasons not to do it… but then, the pattern kept repeating.
I realised that it was actually just resistance. The problem was something in my head, not something circumstantial.
I noticed that the last few weeks we stayed in Lebanon, I stopped doing so many Facebook Lives. Sometimes it was for logistical reasons like we did not have 4G so I couldn’t get online... but more often I told myself that the backdrop was not perfect; or there was traffic noise; or I did not feel I had much to say.
In reality, I was feeling the need to be perfect. I was trying to create a “perfect" experience for my audience. But people do not want you to be perfect: they want real. They want anything at all vs nothing! If you have something - anything - of value to say, then that is enough. They are going to get the message they need from you.
