Do you ever get that antsy feeling – like you’re on the verge of something big and you want to switch things up and shake loose anything that isn’t working for you?
I was feeling that way just recently.
I had my finger on the eject button and was ready to cast off a few things that weren’t rocking my business world……BUT…I was noticing a slight hesitation to PUSH that EJECT button because I was worried about what people might think.
I was afraid that people would think I was flaky or unreliable, and they would be mad at me for changing up the things that they were used to.
Have you ever been there- afraid to ditch the stuff that isn’t working for you because you’re afraid someone won’t like it or think poorly of you?
I had to laugh at myself when I sat down and looked at my hesitation and I realized what was going on!
I’ll be the first one to tell you that what other people think about you is none of your business- you can’t control their thoughts. When I waste my time worrying about what other people think, I am not honoring what feels right to me. If I continue to offer programs that don’t feel right to me, just because I’m afraid that someone else won’t like it, I’m not acting from a place of alignment.
Doing things that don’t feel right is no way to run your business, or your life!
But we still do it way too often.
Where are you doing things in your business now that don’t feel right?
Maybe it’s the way you communicate with your list, or the programs that you offer, or the way you work with people?
I’m committed to flying my freak flag and creating from a place of alignment, and that means NOT doing things that don’t feel right to me. If that means hitting the ejector button every now and then so be it!
I took a good hard look at my business and realized that there were a number of things I was doing that didn’t feel right to me.
I was creating group programs because I was told that it was the way to make money- but for me it didn’t feel right- so I ejected it! Now I’m having fun getting up close and personal with you during Unfurl Your Freak Flag Sessions!
I also decided that I didn’t like the formality of the fancy e-zine template that I had. I’d wanted to ditch it for a while but felt attached because I had spent a good chunk of money on it; so I might as well use it. But every time I thought about writing my e-zine and coming up with all the content I felt pressured and unwilling. So I ejected it! Now I write love notes and whisper sweet nothings in my peoples ears.
The last thing I ejected was a private online community that wasn’t working for me. I created it because I thought it was a good idea and everyone else was doing it, then I realized I wasn’t a group site kind of girl. I’ve always drifted away from every group site I’ve been a member of and gone off in pursuit of something new and shiny. Now I embrace who I am and have set myself free to flit about as I like.
I’m now creating my business form a place of alignment and it feels good!
What about you?
What are you ready to eject?
