Let me ask you a question…
Do you want to be successful?
You’re probably thinking, “Um, is that a trick question? OF COURSE I want to be successful. Everyone does!”
As a life coach, and business coach, I’ve met a lot of women who tell me things like: “I want to super successful. I want to be internationally recognized. I want to make tons of money… millions! I want to build an empire. I want to leave an amazing legacy behind.”
But when we start digging a little deeper… things get a little more complicated.
When we start digging, a lot of fears come up.
Many women are actually “afraid” of becoming “too successful.” After a couple of coaching sessions, many times, these fears start to come creeping out. That’s when women start to tell me:
“I’m scared that if I earn millions, I’ll waste the money, or lose it, or do something stupid. I’ve always been terrible with money. I just can’t handle that kind of pressure.”
Or, they tell me:
“I’m scared of being in the public eye. If I get too famous, I know all the trolls and critics will come out and I’ll be attacked. Mean comments. Hate mail. All of it. I can’t handle being scrutinized like that.”
Or, they tell me:
“I just don’t think I can handle success. I don’t know how to manage a team of employees. I don’t know how to deal with the media, the press. I don’t know how to do a TV appearance. I think I would crumble from all the stress. I just… can’t handle it.”
Here’s what I want to say to you…
You CAN handle it.
You DO have what it takes.
Trust that as your business grows, you will grow along with it.
You will get wiser. You will develop lots of emotional tools to cope with stress. You will build even more confidence over time. You will acquire the skills that you need to thrive, and keep thriving, and run a sustainable business.
Trust that you will learn along the way.
Think of all the things you can “handle” today that you couldn’t handle five or ten or twenty years ago. You’ve grown a lot! You’ve seen some crazy shit! You’ve walked thousands of miles. You’ve experienced failure and success. You’re learned valuable lessons. And you’ll keep learning.
Your new mantra is:
“When, not if, WHEN my business becomes wildly, crazily successful, I will be ready. I will handle it. I will be even stronger than I am today. I can handle all of it. And it will be… fucking amazing.”
I believe in you.
You’re growing stronger every day.
You can handle whatever happens today.
And you can handle whatever comes next.
It’s GO time.
