You know the business theory inside out but when it comes to taking action you believe the bullshit stories and excuses in your mind (“too busy, “I have to do another certificate!”, “I can’t charge that much!”, “I can’t get paid in full and upfront by clients!”, “I haven’t done anything like this before, so I might fuck up!”, “I will certainly fuck up!”… etc.
You have this Fear of missing out, so you say YES to so many projects at once and when you start multitasking you are exhausting yourself and you feel resentment for work instead of passion and joy.
Too often you say to yourself “I will do this and that WHEN ______”! (I have more money, when my husband finishes his project, when kids are bigger, when I have more FB followers, when my website is finished… etc)
You feel overwhelmed with all the marketing strategies and then suddenly months pass and you haven’t tried any of them! That’s when self-judgement and criticism kick in (DAMN).
You keep saying “I’m fine!” because you think asking for help/guidance is weak and you have to figure out everything by yourself
You still say YES when you want to say NO! (I was the world champion in this too!)
You feel you are all alone in this because no one in your family or friends really gets you! (I know I did – and I almost lost MY VOICE in this world because of that and got a job in Austria).
You feel like a slave to your own business! When you have the guts to look in the mirror you realise that your business is stopping you to have what you want and you get angry because this is the opposite of why you started your business! You wanted a life you love! (LET’S GET YOU SUCH A LIFE!)
