Kelly wanted to be a nutritionist but, not just any nutritionist. She wanted to work with pro athletes.
The only problem was she didn’t know any pro athletes.
So, when she graduated from school, she set up shop helping anyone who wanted it.
She helped a new mom lose weight. That mom referred her to other moms and over time, she became known as the go-to post-partum nutritionist.
Her practice grew and more and more her dreams of helping pro athletes seemed further away.
The fastest path to what you want is a straight line.
Yet too often we let our beliefs guide us away from our desired destination.
We tell ourselves things like:
“I’m not good enough.” “I need more experience.” And “I’m not ready.”
And as we try to bolster our confidence doing things related to but not exactly what we want, we steer ourselves off-course.
You don’t have to know what you’re doing to go for what you want.
And you don’t have to be ready.
These are myths your ego tells you to keep you stuck.
When you think of your dream business, what are you doing?
Do your actions reflect someone who is going for this or someone who is beating around the bush?
If it’s the latter, it’s time to examine your beliefs.
