Have you ever jumped out of a plane? I didn’t know if I was ever really going to do it then I started telling people I was going to do it and before I knew it I was doing it!
Was I scared? You better believe it! My first thought when I got in the jump gear and on the plane was how was I going to get the nerve up to jumping out a perfectly good plane. Well it became easier when I was strapped to someone else who was trained for this very thing. The fears were calmed for sure. This is no different than taking a leap of faith in making a completely different career move or walking away from a 6 figure job!
Yes, you can follow someone else’s lead and you will thank yourself for freeing your spirit once it is done, believe me! I actually look forward to jumping out of that plane again, because it wasn’t as bad as my fears had worked me up for it.
What else are you holding yourself back from? Are you being held back because of your own fears or your partner’s fears? You will never know how good you will be at something if you don’t try it. I know, what if the risk out weighs the rewards! Honestly, this is something you need to sort out now before it is too late and all you have to live with is your regret for not doing it instead. It could be the most successful thing you have done in your career and life time, but if you don’t plan it or work with someone who has done the very same thing, you are not only limiting your success but your growth and development to be the best version of yourself by not doing it.
Let me ask you this, what is the worst that could happen if you take that leap of faith and just do it? Then what is the worst that could happen if don’t take that leap of faith and just do it? You fail twice as bad, so why not figure out what it would actually take to get your ultimate goal in motion with a map or plan?
Failure is a result of trying, not trying is a result of lack of confidence in yourself. Lack of confidence in yourself means you don’t believe you can do it. STOP this way of thinking now! This is a form of limiting belief system that your subconscious mind is feeding you! If you don’t have the support you need or coach to push you, or the “neigh sayer” in your ear, then that is the first think you need to get figured out. As a Mid-career Mastery Coach, I can be the biggest pain in the butt you want me to be, if it means to push you through your steps to your dreams. I can help you line it out and work with you on your time lines, but first we need to get you thinking about the solutions and just getting it done. Reach out, I am here for you!
