MAY I ASK YOU A QUESTION? HAS YOUR BUSINESS EVER MADE YOU FEEL NOT GOOD ENOUGH? HAVE YOU EVER FELT NOT GOOD ENOUGH?
Have you ever questioned yourself, or thought: “Who am I to do this?” or “Am I ready for this?”
Or – do you ALWAYS feel secure, on the top of the world?
If your answer is the former (do hit reply and let me know), I’d love you to read this, please.
This is precisely what is happening to me right now in this ‘red hot minute’. In the most ironic way.
Let me explain.
Following the massive success of the Extraordinary Live event in January, I thought: “Okey-dokey. In a way, I too have been playing small. It’s time to spread my wings and share my message with the world.”
So I hired few people helping me with that. One of them was Katya Varbanova, the viral video funnel specialist. The idea was that I’d record a short video with my message. A type of video that could go viral.
“What’s the most important message you have to share with the women entrepreneurs?” – Katya asked.
“THAT FEELING ‘NOT GOOD ENOUGH’ IS A BIG FAT LIE.”
“If women could truly get that, they could stop robbing themselves of success and happiness they deserve.”'That feeling 'not good enough' is a big fat lie. If women could truly get that, they could stop robbing themselves of success and happiness they deserve.'Click To Tweet
So we got to work. I decided to share a very personal story, a defining moment that gave me a whole new perspective on the ‘not good enough’ business.
My videographer came to my office, and we started filming. And he asked an interesting question: “Do you want to film a line by line, until perfect? Or share your story all in one take?”
Upon reflection, I replied: “Since it’s a story about “ever felt not good enough?”, it would be kind of ironic to aim for perfection. I want to share from the heart. We’ll do it all in one take.”
And we did.
A few days later I got the final video.
AND THAT WAS ENOUGH TO AWAKEN MY EGO
“What were you thinking, woman? You want THIS to go viral? You want women around the world listening to THIS? … And anyway, even if it does go viral, can you imagine the amount of hate you’re going to get because of your “English”? Can it be even called English??”
I gently told my mind to shut it. I committed to releasing the video by certain date and even told a good few people about it.
And then one of my business buddies excitedly wrote me: “My video is ready! I’m sharing it on Monday evening!”
So I watched her video.
Bloody hell. Amazing setup. Also an amazing message. Amazing editing. And Amazing energy. What an amazing woman!
And guess what?! Her English is PERFECT too.
AND THAT WAS ENOUGH, AS EMBARRASSING AS IT IS, TO TEAR ME UP
“What was I thinking???? Why couldn’t I record a line by line like every normal person? What was I even thinking to do something like this??
IT’S NOT GOOD ENOUGH!!! It’s not worthy!!!! Hmmm….
Ever felt not good enough? This was one of those moments.
This showed up again for me, even though I already built a beautiful, high six-figure business that changes many lives.
Even though I am raising three human beings (what a job in itself!).
Even though I created the life for my family and myself that I am truly proud of.
This, even though I am receiving messages from my clients sharing their phenomenal successes and quantum leaps every day.
AND STILL, MY MIND WANTS TO CONVINCE ME THAT I AM NOT GOOD ENOUGH
Because I dare to put myself out there.
And isn’t it often the case?
Isn’t it the case with you too?
Isn’t it that, every time you are ready to stretch yourself, your mind starts playing tricks on you? Trying to slow you down? To stop you? To keep you safe? Therefore to keep you small?
Of course. Our mind can be our biggest fan one minute, and biggest enemy the next.
And yes, it’s a fantastic negotiator.
AND HERE IS ONE THING I HAVE LEARNED – NEGOTIATING WITH OUR MINDS IS NOT WORTHY. IT CAN ONLY GET US AS FAR…
GETTING OUT of our mind, and do our thing ANYWAY, is the only way to create extraordinary growth in our businesses, and create miracles in our lives.
So that’s what I have done – because I was releasing that video ANYWAY.
You can find the Ever felt not good enough? video over on my business page, and I would LOVE for you to watch it. And share it if you find it touched something in you. (Please like my page so you can get a notification for more inspiring videos!)
There are many women out there who need to hear the truth about ‘not good enough’, I think! Do you agree?
I would like to ask you for one more favour.
GO AND SEEK SITUATIONS THAT WILL CAUSE LITTLE (OR BIG) FIGHTS BETWEEN YOUR MIND AND TRUTH
Do those things where your mind will try and convince you that you’re not good enough; you’re not ready; you’re not worthy. And then tell your mind to shut it, and do your thing anyway.
Again and again.
I promise you.
Your life and business will transform so quickly you’ll be pinching yourself.
It happened to me. And it happens to every woman who refuses to buy into lies her mind tries to feed her with.
