You have the power to be your own biggest cheerleader, so stop waiting around for everyone else to do it for you.
Whether you’re waiting for permission or a swift kick in the ass to do the thing, it may never come if you don’t do it yourself.
So here’s what to do if you’re tired of waiting for the perfect timing:
❤️ Think outside of yourself.
If you were acting as the CEO of your side hustle business, what decision would they make? If you were talking to your 10 year old self, what would you say to her? Think of someone that you look up to and respect, and say to yourself “what would ________ do?”
If we don’t have those people around us, BECOME that person for yourself.
❤️ Tell those around you what you need from them.
Sometimes people just don’t know that you’re needing encouragement or help, and if we don’t tell them, they may never have the opportunity to improve.
Your loved ones want to be there for you, but may not know how. So be specific.
❤️ Listen to encouraging audiobooks or podcasts.
Search for subjects that interest you and find the people that speak your language. The options are endless, so start exploring. There are days where 20 minutes in my car listening to another badass female entrepreneur can turn my whole day around.
❤️ Invest in a coach.
A business coach, fitness coach, life coach, therapist, mentor.... find SOMEONE whose job it is to be exactly what you need. The growth that comes from their knowledge and experience can be priceless.
By “invest” I mean PAY GOOD MONEY for it. Don’t cheat yourself by downloading a “Fix Your Life” e-book for $9.99. You get what you pay for. Believe in yourself enough to INVEST.
