Do you ever feel like you’ve just hit a wall in your business, and the things that used to work for you all of a sudden just DON’T? Maybe you just don’t feel like yourself: you’re procrastinating or avoiding making calls, stuck in trying to make things perfect or sliding down that slippery slope of comparing yourself to others and coming up short. Maybe you’ve just quit networking and feel like you’re kind of hiding behind your computer. Or maybe you’ve got a product or service to launch and you are just NOT getting it done.
Sometimes it almost feels like aliens have taken over your once-capable self! At those times, it’s hard not to feel like a fraud, when you’re falling short in the areas where you’re supposed to be the expert.
What’s up with all this?
There are actually a couple of possibilities. Maybe you’re just plain tired, overwhelmed, need to figure out how to take a break or get some more help or somehow get a little slack in the system.
OR MAYBE there’s something bigger afoot.
Maybe, just maybe, your heart has hit the point where it is done going along with doing what’s practical, fitting in, playing it safe. Maybe you’ve been following other people’s dreams or suggestions. There’s actually a really good chance that your heart is saying it’s time for you to step up in a whole new way. Dig deeper, go farther, and do the scary stuff that really MATTERS to you.
There’s the question. Are you doing things that take you outside the box and scare you with their audacity? Are you taking the chances that you dream of taking? Trying the big bold ideas that will cause your business to grow, thrive, stretch and blossom?
Your heart knows. You gut knows. Are you just tired, or are you tired of playing small?
The thing is, when your heart decides it’s time for you to show up in a bigger way, you don’t really get a choice. The bigger part of you is going to pull the plug on things as they have been.
You begin to get nudges – and if you ignore them, you get stronger nudges. I think of it as the feather, the brick and the Mack truck. You can listen when the message is the tickle of a feather, (a simple nudge to try something new) or you can wait to get hit by a brick (a near miss or small accident that makes you sit up and take notice) – and if you ignore those, look out for the Mack truck! The business failure, the loss of a loved one, the cancer.
The farther you get in life, the more your heart wants you to do what really matters. What you came here to do. And it will set things up (or make things stop) until you get that message.
If this message hits you in the gut, that’s good information. You know that there’s something like this going on inside. At a deep level you know that the problems you are struggling with in your business are the result of this call from your heart, to adjust your path, to go deeper, to find and create more meaning.
If that’s true, there’s a lot you can do to support yourself, to make the exploration and the transition beautiful and joyful, rather than scary and painful. I’d love to invite you into a conversation about what’s happening inside, when it gets harder and harder to make things happen on the outside. And about the powerful things you can do to make the ride amazing.
