Personal growth and ambition is a tough business.
Especially if you have more inside you than the mundane 9-5 existence you’ve been wrongly sentenced to.
Especially when others around you constantly feel the need to bring you down when you speak up about your entrepreneurial ambitions.
And then there’s you…
Too afraid to start something new, yet too burdened and suffocated by normality. You’ve been told before you have great knowledge and advice to give, but what do you actually do with it?
You’re desperate to take the plunge and start something new but how?
Believing you’re good enough at something is not easy. We are programmed to think that the world has something against us so it becomes second nature to settle for less than we deserve. The universe is a scary place and it’s hard to go against what is construed to be ‘ordinary’.
Nowadays we find comfort in sharing moments of pain rather than pleasure. As if everyone is attempting to out-do each other’s life failures. Finding humour at personal disasters has become a common shield to protect us from breaking through our comfort zone.
If you’re anything like me, you’re probably yearning for an alternative right?
Knowing something inside you is itching to get out. All of this built up passion, whether you’re a fitness fanatic, a photographer, health food worshipper, life coach, writer, chef… the list could go on forever but the ONE thing they all share is knowledge…
Have you actually thought about how lucky we are to live in the informational age. People are now consuming advice and education online on a vast global scale. They want instant, reliable and valuable advice on every topic under the sun.
Are you someone who knows fine well that there’s much more of you to put out there than you’re giving yourself credit for? You know you can educate people on a far greater scale than half of the clowns you have seen online doing the same thing.
Perhaps you have always wanted to be your own boss but fear has always overwhelmed your ability to make this a reality.
Well after absorbing ourselves into the world of online marketing, we know a different approach…
And that is to start believing that your own goals are much closer than you think. Be confident in your ability to teach what feels almost second nature to you. You may think that because you know everything about a topic like the back of your hand, you believe everyone else out there does too…
Being so absorbed in your own knowledge can make if difficult to believe others will see the value. Is my advice really worth sharing? And can I really charge for it?
If you’re wondering, the answer is YES!!
Conquer From Within
You’ll be amazed at what can happen when you create a shift in your mindset. Start thinking positively and allow your confidence to break free. Your mind can hold only the amount of control over your life as you allow it to.
The beauty of being human, unlike other species, is having the ability to actually think for ourselves. Deep thoughts, intense reflections and the power to be able to pause what is going on in our lives, then change it. You can interrupt the flow in your head whenever you wish. But many people don’t…
Sure, life would be easy if all we had to do was worry about eating, sleeping and repeating… but we were not put on earth for just that. We are intended for so much more. Stop yourself now from living in a world of self-doubt and belittling.
Ridding yourself of negative thoughts (not an easy challenge I know) is essential if you want to position yourself as an expert to turn your passion into a profitable business.
Know that your personal message can change a person’s life and create an impact so immeasurable, you may not even know it yet. If you connect at that right moment in someones life, you have the power to make a huge difference.
It’s not about knowing absolutely EVERYTHING about your topic, it’s about using your voice to create a movement of people who look to your for advice. You’re educating if you can become that spark that ignites someone’s desire to make a change.
Evidently there will always be people more advanced than you on a topic, but you aren’t teaching them. You’re going to be teaching the ones who are steps behind you in their knowledge. That being said, you can continue to learn from the people who are ahead of you.
Like a ladder, it’s beneficial to be situated in the middle as you have multiple resources to gain more knowledge from, yet know enough to generate your own movement of people who will put their trust in you.
You Do You
If you have that fire within you, let yourself soar. Allow yourself to thrive and accomplish things you didn’t even know were possible. Once you breakthrough the barrier of fear, you’ll look back on that threshold and realise that the same obstacles cannot hold you back any longer. You’re bigger than them now.
Having passion for something rewards you with the power to change someone’s life. You know your advice and knowledge better than anyone else out there so be proud. Do yourself a favour and go out there and begin the steps towards what you were born to do.
Stop comparing yourself to others in the same market as you. Spending time ogling over their achievements won’t make yours happen any faster and you will just be losing out on more time that could be spent focusing on you!
Hence why the majority of start up’s fail when anxiety driven compassion takes over and you suddenly feel like you cannot compete. Giving up is a natural occurrence when you focus on other people – not yourself.
This is your only life, this second, this minute… so be selfish. Stop letting the opinion of others tear you apart because ultimately, this is a reflection of their own failures and insecurities – not yours. Why continue to give them the power to damage your dreams?
Believe in your ability to succeed and be selfish with your time. You have to sacrifice the things that others want you to do. It can’t be their decision. Allowing toxic people to leave a negative impression on your goals will only delay the process longer.
Do what is necessary if you are desperate for a change – no matter how much you have to scream out amongst the noise. And don’t apologise for who you want to become. Never apologise for wanting more from your life.
Dive into what sets your soul on fire and makes you smile from the inside. You can set yourself free from a life that you don’t want. Being who you truly are will bring all the more credibility to your future endeavours.
Think about ‘Why’ you want this?… The story behind what you want to give?
If you can be the most authentic version of yourself, your audience will connect with your ‘Why’. The ‘Why’ that shines through making it simple for your audience to connect to you.
Sparking raw emotion from someone who shares the same ‘Why’ will ultimately be what turns you into a expert, not any fancy credentials or false illusions of expertise. Passion trumps everything else so let that be the thing that carries you.
Trust the process if you are serious about making change. Do you want to finally quit the job that serves you no passion? Do you finally want to be proud of what you do?
Now is the time to turn your knowledge, talents and abilities into a business.
True growth and fulfilment comes from your contribution to others, the only person who can take this away from you is yourself.
Be stronger than the irrational fears that will surface again, you’re human after all. But this is your mind talking… not your heart. We easily mix the two and allow thoughts to suffocate us.
Many hide behind their thoughts and allow the excuses to surface but if you really want to move forward, it’s time to let this stop…
Blaming others or our external circumstances gives us the illusion that we are in control of whats happening. But lets get real here. The blame game isn’t fooling anyone but yourself. The world is not out to get you and you certainly aren’t the only one dealing with difficulties.
Find your voice and muster the confidence to become a leader…
Build a mass movement of people whose lives you can affect…

You are the conductor on your own journey and if you really want escape normality and not surrender to your current job, then it’s time to do whatever it takes.
