Tears + Tubs of Peanut Butter AKA When EGO goes wild!
As I write this, my throat is tightening up. My eyes are a little watery. It’s not a good scene. I am a little stressed about my launch.
So, I teach people how to launch things. That is a part of the way I make my living. It is what I do. Over the last year I have launched and sold out 8 times.
But here I am freaking out. I didn't get to really do my launch plan (my dog Alfred was SUPER sick). I don't feel like I have enough time. BLAH BLAH BLAH.
But as I am sitting here, I realize it’s all about ego.
It is easy to get caught up in Mr. Ego. If I don’t fill the class, what does that say about me? Will people still trust me? Can I do this? How will it look?
I got caught up in self-doubt for much of this morning, having lots of mini pity parties and eating lots of peanut butter. Did I mention it’s not a good scene?
In the end, and this is what I am telling myself in this moment right now, it’s not about that. It’s about being of service. It is about being who you are and offer the gifts that you find so much pleasure and happiness in giving. If it was all about the money, most of us would have gotten a job already, right?
I LOVE my work. Idea to Income makes me SO happy to do and it doesn't matter how many people are in the class, I still love it.
And if I come from that place, from that place of OMG I AM SO EXCITED because I get to run the class again, that is enough to keep me going.
And I want that for you too! For you to create something that makes you so thrilled that the numbers won’t matter.
But I know how hard it is to look at an empty inbox and wish so badly to get that paypal confirmation.
And it’s still f-ing hard.
But every time I get an email that says “thanks for being awesome” it inspires me to keep going during the sucky parts. In that moment when Mr. Ego is seducing you, think about how you said that thing to your client that changed their life. Think about that testimonial that still makes you smile.
I recently made the decision that these workshops are what I want to do all the time. This is my business model. This is what I want to do. This is what I want my life to look like.
And it’s time for me to meet the challenge.
Because it is ALWAYS challenging!
I don’t believe in being fearless because I’ll never be afraid that I will fail. Courage keeps me going in face of my fear. You keep me going.
I hope that through it all you know that you are really killin’ it and that people need what you've got, even if it doesn't feel like it.
And know I am cheering you on 110%!
