Lately I have been working on some ideas to help my business grow. I’ve spent hours researching and taking online classes to prepare myself. You see.. I got caught in the trap of wanting everything to be “perfect” and kept getting ready to get ready. I’m not sure if you have been there, but I sure have. I had to get out of the trap as well as stop being complacent about the urgency of my goals.
Friends and family say, get a real job, something you can count on and as much as I hate to admit, I almost took a job again for the “security”. I went to the interview and really didn’t want to get the job…then I was offered the position. But when it came down to it, I knew that IF I went back to a job working for someone else now… my dreams and goals would wither and die. So, I took a deep breath and jumped in. No backup plans…just lots of action.
Yes, it will be a challenge but by declining the offer, I made myself have to succeed. Commit or quit and quitting is NOT an option for me. The funny thing is, as soon as I declined the offer, my mind starting thinking of positive actions I could start taking to make headway on my goal. The fire inside me has roared back to life.
What about you… have any of you had this happen and how did you react? I’d love to hear.
