What is stopping you from starting or growing your Online Business
What is stopping you from building your online business. It's funny how the smallest thing can speak volumes to your heart. I was walking through the barley fields of Cyprus when I saw this beautiful butterfly fly past and land on a branch. I was so moved I shot a video about it. If you hate videos my summary is below.
When the butterfly landed it assumed what I would guess as a camouflage position, with it's wings upright. What amazed me was when it's wings were upright you did not notice it's beauty - it looked like a dry leaf. Only when it spread it's wings did it fly away and you notice the beauty.
So I got to wondering what is it that stops us "spreading our wings"? What is it that holds us back from building an online business? What is our comfort zone - our comfortable place. Is it:
- Fear of Failure?
- Fear of what others think?
- Fear of rejection - maybe we don't think what we have to share is worth it?
- Maybe we love what we do but we find the "online world" with all of the tech a bit overwhelming?
Many people wonder - after having worked on so many online businesses, running campaigns, building funnels, implementing tech, etc - why I did not just do my own thing.
It took me till only recently to discover I had a comfortable place - of doing great things for others - but my lack of feeling worthy stopped me stepping out and getting what I rightly deserved. I still have a journey with that personally.
But it inspired me to write this article. Take some time today and think about what it really is that is blocking you - what is it that is stopping you spreading your wings and sharing your beauty with the world.
I believe everyone is unique and has something special to give - and sometimes whether it be our upbringing, well meaning friends or our social structure in which we currently find ourselves - we believe what others have told us. If any of that is stopping you from flying throw it out.
I would love to hear about your journey or transformation through business or personal roadblocks. Feel free to message me any time!
