So, you’ve had this great idea for some time now and thinking it’s time to launch. You’ve tested it, planned for it, and are excited about the offer you have. But… you feel you need to do a little more research, wait a little longer until you feel ready.
This is the feeling keeps most aspiring business owners stuck at the starting line.
You’ve worked hard to plan for your business, but for some reason you don’t feel quite ready to launch. Maybe you’re website is not yet 100% to your liking, or maybe it’s some skill or expertise that you feel you must obtain prior to launching. Whatever the case, you just do not feel comfortable moving ahead with your plans.
Something I’ve learnt from one of my mentors Marie Forleo is that “everything is figureoutable!” Yes, I know. That is not a word, but you get the point.
The thing is, if you wait till you feel 100% ready and for the time to be perfect, chances are you will never step up and launch.
Sure, there are some jobs out there that requires you to feel 100% ready, take open heart surgery for instance, but I’m thinking that’s not what you’ve been on the fence about, is it?
You see, so many people are waiting and waiting and waiting. They see others who are more established than they are and feel that they cannot compete and feel unworthy.
Keep in mind that these established people started just where you’re at. They started with zero and worked their way up to their current position. Furthermore, there are people out there that are behind your knowledge level that would benefit from working with you versus someone more established.
However, you need to move past your comfort zone and TAKE ACTION! As you take action, you will always have the opportunity to course correct as you go. There will always be improvements but you will never grow and develop if you stay standing at the starting line.
It’s time to stretch yourself and take the leap!
Another thing Marie says is to start before you’re ready. This is so important because there will always be something more you feel that you must master, or another course that you need to take. All of this takes you away from executing your goals. Yes, I believe 100% in planning, but please don’t hide behind that as a reason to play small. There is a marketplace looking to have their needs met, that only YOU and your great business, and beautiful gifts can meet.
So what opportunity can you start before you feel ready? Leave a comment below and let me know!
