It’s more likely you lost yourself in the process, you experienced a massive let down, and feel like someone lied to you. It wasn’t as fulfilling as you thought it’d be and now you’re questioning why you started this business in the first place because it’s not the fun or lavish lifestyle you expected.
Now you have this runaway train that feels impossible to sustain OR scale. Am I right?
Either the business gives or you give. You either are or have plans of being your own boss, and going backwards is not an option.
So how do you shift gears and get off this in-business-for-yourself treadmill?
It takes Audacity. It takes stepping into the identity of the person who lives the lifestyle you really want AND the boss who runs his/her business their own way.
No matter what the rest of the world says about how you should do it.
You know what I’m talking about.
There’s a wall in front of you right now and you can’t see how to get past it. You’re tired and there has to be a different way to continue to grow your highly successful business without all this hustle and hard work. There has to be a way to have success AND fulfillment.
You start by accepting: You’re not going to get to your next level of revenue the same way you got to mid 5-figures (or higher).
All the strategy in the world isn’t going to make a bit of difference. You don’t need to know more or do more. The shifts that need to happen are internal. The next iteration of your business is going to require:
- Mindset shifts (and pattern interrupts)
- Stepping into a new identity (rather than just creating a job for yourself)
- Connection (with your inner self, intuition, and instincts)
