It’s just one of those days. A day of great risk in the business I’m building.
It’s one of those days when I think to myself, “Don’t do it then. Nobody cares.”
But I made a commitment to publish a blog post every week. Even if nobody else cares whether I honour that commitment, I do.
Why? Because to break a promise feels crappy. It starts a negative spiral that can lead to compromised self-respect and self-confidence.
Instead, I choose to show up as the person I want to be.
So I’m writing.
There are days when I definitely make a different choice. Nobody’s perfect after all.
There may be days when YOU also feel like opting out, caving away, avoiding. Maybe you genuinely need to in order to take care of yourself and your energy. As an introvert who needs plenty of alone time, I can definitely relate. And that’s ok.
But I’d like to urge you to keep your commitment to yourself. To your character. To your business. To your possibility.
Scott Dinsmore at Live Your Legend stated in a webinar that,
Your biggest risk is stopping.
It’s not uncommon that your biggest risk in the business you’re building comes from within you. After all, self-employment is one of the most powerful personal growth tools I’ve encountered. On a daily basis, we can face long-ingrained mindset challenges.
We can learn and understand all the strategies in the world. It’s up to us to implement them.
You have started on a path to creating something inspired and powerful (even if only in your imagination right now). Don’t sell yourself short (even if you get sidetracked here and there). Your success – on your own terms – matters.
