For entrepreneurial women developing your courage muscle is the only way to achieve your dream lifestyle.
We have at times allowed fear to make the decision on how we would live our lives instead of making the changes we really want in our lives. Sometimes we don’t even realize we are letting our lives be controlled by fear.
As entrepreneurial women as we start to make changes in our life and grow our business, we naturally begin to feel uncomfortable.
We all want to feel safe and secure, but the reality is as we build our dream lifestyle, we stretch into situations that are new, uncomfortable, and scary. To keep growing and stretching, developing your courage muscle is essential to building the life you desire.
Think about it. The behaviors and habits you have developed to this point have gotten you the life you have here and now. To bring about your life without limits, your dream lifestyle will require new habits, new behaviors and new skills.
Each new habit and behavior requires learning new skills. As we coach women into building the life they desire, the hardest thing to teach isn’t the computer skills, writing skills, technical skills or anything like that. It’s always the mental skills and developing the mental courage it takes to move out of our comfort zone that we are currently in.
As entrepreneurial women we are constantly learning and growing. We must ask ourselves to have the courage to do things we have never done before.
Let me explain.
Have you ever felt the task at hand was impossible, only to slowly over time accomplish and then become good at it?
We all have!
As an adult, walking up to a stranger and starting a conversation, at one time, felt like an impossible task. I would stand frozen in fear unable to take the steps to simply walk over and say hello. Over time, like riding a bike, it became a learned skill.
How about speaking or performing on stage?
So many times we have heard, “I could never do that.” The truth is it’s just another learned skill.
So what does any of this have to do with courage and living the life you desire, living a dream lifestyle?
It takes courage to try new things, to fail and try again, yet this is part of entrepreneurial women’s lives. Entrepreneurial women must develop their courage muscle, one day at a time. Like any muscle in your physical body your courage muscle gets stronger with use.
As entrepreneurial women we have learned to find the courage, and to use fear to expand our comfort zone, we have been able to share more of ourselves, and our skills and talents with the world. Our journey hasn’t been smooth or easy but has been the only way to live our best life, to learn to live our life without limits and have the dream lifestyle we desire.
As always we are here to help you, “live a life without limits.”
