Recently, I’ve had some new opportunities come my way and they’re challenging me more than I expected, and causing some restlessness that I’m unfamiliar with. Going out of my comfort zone for sure, in fact, more than I remember, and ramping up all kinds of questions and second guessing that I normally wave aside. Sometimes it’s easier said than done, and to practice what we teach is the ultimate lesson.
Given the fact that business decisions can sometimes be more costly than planned, it’s interesting how we handle the inner chatter, especially when fear and uncertainty come into play. On one hand, we know that we want to play bigger, but there’s a risk. It’s crunch time and the only way to play bigger, or make a splash is to be “all in”, take the risk, have faith in yourself and your abilities, and expect the best. I’m sure that even the CEO of a major corporation has these same thoughts, though he/she may have a Board of Directors, and the decision making is shared. With an entrepreneur, the decision and results most often rest on our shoulders. A few wrong decisions can make an impact that can alter the course of history. Conversely, a few right decisions can do the same.
Ultimately, I decided late last night to just stop thinking. To stop carrying on a never ending dialogue in my head, and go to bed, asking for what the best solution would be.
I slept like a rock and woke up with a plan.
The Dream Team helped, and delivered the answer which I had been seeking all day.
Ask and you will receive.
Have you asked for the help you needed lately? Better yet, have you listened?
All the best to you,
