Ep 28: What you are WILLING to do is what matters in life & business!

Apr 30, 2020
 

I heard a great saying the other day - and it hit me like a brick:
"You can't have what you aren't willing to become." Wow. Think about that for a minute. Think about it in terms of your life - AND business.

In today's episode, I share how you can create boundaries & parameters for what you are and aren't willing to do - because it matters big-time.

Let me repeat the saying again: “You can’t have what you aren’t willing to become.” Let it sink in….

It made me reflect on my process of seriously considering opening a facial spa in my town. After working through everything with the consultant…I soon realized what I WAS NOT willing to sacrifice to have that business.

  1. I was not willing to risk all the money in a town that had many awesome businesses go out of business.

  2. I was not willing to work 6 days a week until 7pm since 2 of my 3 kids are still home.

  3. I was not willing to do ALL of that considering I am not the breadwinner of the home and wasn’t really needing to work that much.

    For your business, have you thought about what you are willing to do and NOT to do? Today is today to map it out. Really think through your boundaries and parameters.

    Here’s why you need to:

    -It will help you make better, intentional decisions.

    -It will give you a clear direction.

    -It will free you from feeling sad about letting opportunities go - you weren’t being fearful, you were CONSCIOUSLY making a choice to let that go. You can let go of doing everything on social media, for example, if you aren’t willing to do what it takes to get 80 million fans - you can say you chose NOT to take the route. (Again, just an example - many have very successful businesses built on millions of followers of course)

    I hope you will take this time to realize that you have a conscious choice to take certain paths in your business. If you have clear boundaries and parameters set up for what you are willing and NOT willing to do - it will make your path so much smoother!
