So I’ve had a whopper of an article/blog post brewing in me for quite some time now. I will be sharing it with you shortly but suffice it to say that travel (however near or far), stepping out of the norm, following what you really want…all of that really shakes things up. It shows you not only who you really are (the brand of woman you are) but just how to get to where you want to go…it opens our eyes to how it could really be…
Shaking things up is change.
Shaking things up is entrepreneurship…leadership.
Shaking things up is uncomfortable. And this is maybe the most curious part of all. I gauge my happiness, success and personal growth all by how uncomfortable I am. Now I don’t mean uncomfortable as in being inauthentic but I do mean a feeling of “I really am alive, aren’t I?” This is usually followed up with a ‘wow’, by the way.
I think it’s easy to forget that as entrepreneurs (yes YOU, YOU are an entrepreneur) that this is the very spirit we need to let out…that getting comfortable in the discomfort IS they key to more and more success and happiness. I couldn’t be more sure of this…
This is entrepreneurship…and though it can be uncomfortable, discomfort always comes with forward movement toward what we desire most and discomfort also brings quantum leaps and growing the ability to leap but this time knowing (trusting) the net will appear.
I know the last line is over-used but it truly is the best example of what we are trying to do as business-owners and as women entrepreneurs…we’re leaping all the time. So my question this week is if you know how to leap because you’ve done it before many many times, how about taking that leap to a shake?
It’s time…now, before the New Year, to shake it up. What’s that thing that you’ve wanted to get into that you haven’t yet? Who could you call to mentor you in this area? What could you do differently today that makes you feel more alive and therefore shares more of you with the world?
How could you step more fully into the brand of woman you are inside?
