I recently did something that I have wanted to do for a really long time. I published a book! I’d had the idea for many years before I even decided to take one action. And… even as I moved forward, I wrestled with all kinds of emotions.
- I was scared.
- I felt unsure of myself and didn't know if I could finish it.
- It looked like I was attempting to climb Mount Everest alone.
Despite these feelings, I stepped into the process anyway. To combat my fear, confidence, and isolation, I hired a coach and I enlisted the support of my closest friends, family members, and my team. I did not expect many people to get involved and be interested. But they did and my community including YOU inspired me to write despite my feelings and insecurities. When I accepted the help, things started to shift.
That's what I want you to know.
Sometimes you need the help. If you must hire someone for clarity, do it. If you need to set things aside (for a season, I limited my marketing so I could reallocate my time to getting things done!), do it. If you need to push through when it gets really hard, do it.
There are moments when you really want to get something done - get out of debt, get kids off to college, or even take a nice vacation. You have goals and dreams and you need to have the confidence that they are worth pursuing.
No matter what it is that you're going through, if the goal is big enough, the end result is worth everything you're putting in to it.
A friend of mine sent me this quote last week - "Let your faith be bigger than your fears" and that totally resonated with me. That's what I had to do - have the faith that I was meant to do this. You can do it too. Grab onto that goal with BIG FAITH (and the help that you need) and make it happen!
