What To Do When You Want To Play A Bigger Game But You Hit A Wall-www.xxsy.net

Business Its always amazing to me how owning a small business is the best self growth program around (except perhaps for parenting). The problems we experience growing a business are exactly the ones we experience in life. One of those is what I call hitting the wall. This occurs when you are pushing and trying and doing and yet you feel like youre on a treadmill, going no where and just plain stuck. Or you know what you should be doing but youre not doing it. You arent sure why. Maybe youre scared or maybe youre unsure, but either way it doesnt feel good. After all, youve got goals. You want a successful business, you want to work less, you want to have money in the bank and you want to actually make a life doing what you love. But something isnt working. At this point you may feel like you either need to push even harder, or you might feel like giving up. If youre trying to decide in which direction you should take your business and time keeps passing with no clear decision, you start to wonder if there is something wrong with you. Why cant you make a decision and move forward? Ive had clients who had achieved a certain level of success, but when I suggested it was time to step things up to a whole new level where they could dramatically increase their income and work less, they hit a wall. Fear of playing a bigger game and trying the unknown kicked in. Fear of stepping out on a limb and getting outside their comfort zone was palpable. I cant tell you how many times as an entrepreneur Ive hit the wall. It sometimes took me months of wading through a lot of uncertainty and confusion until the answer to my dilemma appeared and became clear. Often this happens when you know you have to play a bigger game but youre not sure what that should look like. You just know that you cant stay stuck where you are. Here are a few thoughts to contemplate that might help you get unstuck and push past the wall. Ask yourself: Whats the payoff Im getting for staying stuck where I am? Every time we chose to keep doing what we always did, even though we knew the result wouldn’t change, its because we were getting some kind of payoff. It may be a negative pay-off. Have you ever met someone that keeps getting into relationships with the same dysfunctional type of person? Or someone who starts business after business but drops them before they succeed? These people are getting a negative payoff, but a payoff none the less. If you drop a business before you succeed you dont have to take the responsibility and risk involved in making it succeed. You can always say it wasnt right for you, or another great opportunity came along. Ask yourself why and if you are willing to settle for staying where you are. Let go of outmoded belief systems When you were growing up did you absorb messages and beliefs that are causing you to keep hitting a wall today? Maybe you are doing things the way others in your family always did them and you never examined why. Maybe you have negative beliefs about making money and being prosperous that its time you outgrew. I grew up being taught that you had to cling to every penny or there wouldnt be enough and I had to work very, very hard to overcome that useless belief. What a feeling of freedom and an opening to abundance when I let it go! Many outmoded beliefs create fear and allow us to progress only so far, before the belief causes us to run into a wallagain and again. If youre stuck ask yourself, what do I believe will happen if I play a much bigger game? Finally, if youve done the soul searching above and youre still feeling stuck—well sometimes its okay to be temporarily stuck and unsure. Sometimes moving past the wall is a process that has to play itself out. Instead of pushing harder, relax and believe that you will know what to do when the time is right. Talk with mentors or people you trust who will not judge you or try to convince you that youre just fine where you are. When I know in my gut that a decision just isnt ready to be made, I empty my mind through meditation or I take a quiet walk. I just let go. I surrender. And amazingly, time after time, one day the decision Ive been searching for becomes clear as a bell. Remember that if you try to build your business holding back and hesitating because youre afraid, you will stay stuck, youll keep hitting a wall, but if you resolve to get past the fear and get outside your comfort zone, youll be free to create something big—the life you want.
