Excuses are for Pussy… Cats

Imagine yourself free of those things that hold you back.  Free to go after whatever it is that you want to do.  Free to go wherever you want to go.

I hear people all the time talking about “if only… then I could… but… insert excuse here”

Let me throw some truth out at you.  The question that you should be asking yourself is not “what is holding me back?”.  As I have said before… the answer to that question is YOU.  You are holding yourself back.

The better question is “What would I do with my time if I did find myself free to do anything?”

I quit the company that I co-owned, almost 2 years ago.  I did so without any idea of direction.

It has been an emotional roller coaster to say the least.

Entrepreneurship is filled with ups and downs as is… so add in my indecisive nature as well as shinny object syndrome and the result has been chaos.

After many hard lessons learned, I am getting closer to the life that I want to live.

Are you still working a job that you hate?  Or even worse… do you own your own business already and feel trapped?  Well… you aren’t alone.  Or at least you don’t have to be.

Learn from other’s mistakes (like the many that I have made).

Reach out and ask for help.  Find someone who is where you want to be and build a relationship with them.  I am not saying you have to date them… unless you want to… ha!  What I am saying is you need a mentor!

Start networking with like minded people who are in exactly the same spot you are at.

The most important thing you can do today is ask yourself, “What would I do if I had nothing holding me back?”

Then next step is to take the excuses that you have for whatever is holding you back and shove them up your non-action taking ass!

What are you waiting for?

I want to help.  Reach out to me and let me know where you want to be.  We can see what we can do about getting you there.  Be ready to take action!
