I can only help you if YOU want help.
Yes, this seems obvious, but it’s still all-to-often that I’ll have someone ask me for help and then they won’t accept it. Sometimes the acceptance is in the form of me asking for money, but sometimes it’s actual advice I give away for FREE and yet still I get objections.
Everyone has a list of reasons why they can’t do something–their Thing, for example. But what about the list of reasons WHY NOT.
I see such a split in the people who will and the people who won’t, no matter what. In fact, there is a sneaky group in the middle who say they will but then won’t.
Now, I get that is has to be right for you and finding the right path/idea/guide does play a big part BUT you have to keep looking 'til you find one. It’s not a 'one strike and you’re out' situation! Keep going, keep asking, keep interviewing. And then when you do find the right fit DO SOMETHING.
Yes, there are probably obstacles and things that make it difficult–if was easy, you’d be doing it already. But then very often what you think are mountains turn out to be molehills and you can just step right over them.
I know, I have these all the time–not pretending I don’t! But if you think around the ‘problem’ enough there’s always a way to shrink it (or smash it!) and get moving. Yes, there’s never enough time to get everything done (so don’t even try), sure you don’t have the money right now (that often means you’re not valuing the result yet to part with it or find it). I get that it’s not convenient, or it’s all a bit brand new, or you don’t know how (yet), but you will... it will fit in somehow.
There are plenty of things in life that, when you write out a ‘sensible’ list, never add up (is there ever a perfect time to have a baby, or get a pet, or buy a bigger house, or book that dream trip? Hardly ever but we do it anyway!). Same thing as your Thing. Sometimes you just have to go for it. And turns out it wasn’t that hard, and you found the time/money/know-how. Mountains and molehills.
But the Thing remains, and I can’t do you for you. I have my own mountains to turn into molehills and I can’t step over yours for you. What I can do is help you SEE your Thing, and work out how you can get it out there in the world. But when it comes right down to it, only YOU can do it. It’s not my Thing–it’s yours. And I know I’m doing mine…
Is it time you did yours?
