Build it anyways...
It could fail. It might not grow. I may have to pivot. There’s a great possibility I will fall on my face. I could lose it all. It might hurt like hell.
If I never go for it, I’ll never know the possibilities. If I stop my voice from being heard, I’ll never see the magnitude of my message. If I sit on the sidelines because I’m scared to put myself out there, I’ll never know if someone could have used my help. I can stay huddled in my little corner of the world and who the hell am I serving then…
Fear is such a tit-buster! On the other side of fear is EGO. Not the kind that says...Hey look at me, I’m fuckin awesome and you should follow me!! I’d say that is just a dick-ish kind of arrogance. EGO as in - What if I’m wrong? What if I look stupid? What if I’m not good enough? How about if I totally suck at this? Can you notice a trend????
It’s when we become so internally sucked into what the outside world thinks of us, even at the cost of doing great things. It’s when you looking ‘good’ on the outside is more important than serving at your highest potential. It’s when what you truly believe in, gets washed away because the status quo says differently. It’s when following the crowd is far more important than following your heart, path, journey or passion - all in the name of how the outside world is going to see you. That’s EGO grabbing you by the boobs and twisting you all to hell! Ego doesn’t play nice.
At some point if you truly want to grab the possibilities, you’re going to have to let EGO go….Kick it in the ass, face that shit and really stand up to all those little bastards that are taunting you and stopping you from moving forward in your business or your life. They aren’t going to go easy. It’s going to be a daily battle while you tire them out. You’ll win with tenacity, consistency, support and a crap ton of self love. Be nice to yourself while dancing with these demons. They can burn and sting!
What happens when you let go of EGO?
Possibility. Opportunity. Doors open. Life changes. You’re stronger!!
You believe you can do this. You’ll fall, but get up fast, dust those knees and keep right on movin. You know this is your path. You can feel past the fear. It’s more like excitement & nervousness wrapped into one bright gift. The path begins to suddenly appear where there was NO path. It’s your truest journey of your highest self.
No one said it’d be an easy journey. I can assure you it’s easier to take the right heart path than the wrong one. That wrong path, may look easy, comfortable and secure but your heart will be sacrificed in the process.
So if you are sitting on the side lines of your business, not sure what to write, video, post etc. Stop that non-sense. Someone out there is going to get YOU because you put YOU out there. Stop letting EGO rule and start showing up to serve those that you were meant to support. Someone needs you right now with all the gifts you’ve got to offer, in the unique way that only YOU can do it!
It’s time to stop thinking of all the excuses and start thinking of all the reasons why you should:

I scribble about business & life after 50. I've got no time for BS, bad coffee or crappy relationships! Profanity is a wonderful stress management TOOL. I use it often.
