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!
