Sooooooooooo I have been thinking about you all SO MUCH this weekend as we’ve been moving and this morning over coffee!
I’ve been thinking about how much our life has changed in the last 4 years because of my business. And how my business has accelerated in the last 2 years and how it exploded in the last 90 days.
And it made me just so stinking grateful that I kept going even on the days when I was so discouraged.
There have been so many times in this 4 year journey of taking my business online when I considered throwing in the towel.
Things felt too big. Things felt too hard. I felt like I wasn’t cut out for this. People were mean. It was scary spending money. I wasn’t sure what to do next.
If any of you are feeling any of those things please know..... I FELT THEM TOO!!!!!
There were days when I literally told my husband it would be less work and so much easier and I would make more money managing a QuikTrip. For real.
But I refused to quit because I knew the potential to make ridiculous money online was there and I knew how that could change EVERYTHING for us.
And it did. And it can change everything for you too!!!
So I want you to screenshot this for the next time you’re feeling discouraged.
YOU CAN DO THIS.
It’s going to be hard. It’s going to be scary. People are not going to understand what the heck you’re doing.
Well intentioned friends and families are going to question your decisions.
You are going to work more hours than you want to. You’re going to have to take more risks than you’re used to.
You’re going to wonder if it’s worth it. You’re going to wonder if you’re smart enough. You’re going to want to walk away. You’re going to want to retreat to that which is comfortable.
But I can tell you from someone who refused to give in to any those emotions... EVERY OUNCE OF THAT IS NORMAL.... and WORTH IT.
Lean in to all of those feelings but refuse to give up!!!!
Surround yourself with people who are cheering you on. Ignore EVERYONE ELSE’S OPINION!!! What they think of you is none of your business.
Keep your eyes on your lane.
Keep hacking at this day in and day out.
Get used to being uncomfortable because you will be.
But I promise it’s worth it! I believe in you!!! I’m rooting for you!!!!! Xoxo
