You know ‘the buts’, the reasons, the excuses, we’ve all used them at one time or anotha. Possibly even several times through the day, and especially when it comes to trying to grow your business or launch a new project.
You know what I mean;
– I’d like to do this, but the….
– I could have done that but….. (oh that’s a bad one, full of blame << and don’t ya know it)
– I would do it BUT I DON’T KNOW HOW… << How many times have you used that one!?
– I’d like to have but…
– I want to help but…
– I want to go XXX but….
– But, but… but-i-ti but but but!!!
Well I need to say – But So What!
You know what, I may not be the first to say it (as many expressions have been said before), but (< look there I go using one!),
I do think I came up with this little tag line myself and that is,
LET YOUR BUT’S BE YOUR WHY!?!?!?
Well, why Not?
Need. I. say. more?
Not to be condescending, but you get ma point..
I am sure when you actually face what you fear (lets do that in another post soon), it isn’t actually THAT bad.
Is it that you fear going to zero $$ and having to sleep on someones couch after losing it all?
Fear having people look at you strange?
Fear of looking stupid to those you care about?
I get it, but when you think about it, you might be tougher than you think.
I know for me after becoming a single mum losing my family and my identity, going to zero $$ several other times in my life (moving location and re-starting business again). If there’s one thing i know it’s that having to live off minimum dollars and knowing you can ‘start again’ from scratch, business or personal, although painful at the time, is actually a HUGE blessing – as it helps eliminate fear…
Or at least helps put it into perspective < That it won’t kill us, lol.. (even though it feels like the earth may open up, and swallow us whole, on that particular day, or week!
Don’t get me wrong, choosing not to use your buts isn’t for everyone.. you can keep using your buts if you like.
Then if you are a coach, stay counting to ten.
If you are a nutritionist, let your dreams of ending whatever eating issues the world has, die inside you!
If you are a therapist, well maybe you could stop using the buts as there are people out there WHO NEED YOU!!!
OR – Business doesn’t have to change, life can stay the same – if that’s you. BUT << (hahah) I’m guessing if you are reading this you have that urge inside and it feels un-natural to NOT grow. Like something crawling underneath your skin… That if you don’t have a go, you never would have known what the AMAZING possibilities are.
Really you could say that the ‘worrying’ and the ‘butting’ is making it all about you <<
I mean what will Jo, Bob, Fran and your pet cat think about you if you do, do ‘it’…. bla bla bla
When really, you didn’t start this business to make it all about you, did you?
you know what to do.
