I don’t know what I’m doing wrong.
Everyone else seems to be succeeding, but not me.
There has to be a better way, but I just can’t seem to find it.
What’s wrong with me?

Just a couple of years ago, those were a few of the phrases on automatic repeat in my mind.

I was running a booked-out online marketing business, but I was feeling stressed, stuck, and alone.

Self-doubt was creeping in, and it felt heavy, sad, and I didn’t know what to do about it.

Everything changed when I hired someone to bust me on my stubborn, self-sabotaging beliefs AND teach me what to replace them with. I learned to speak in the language of possibility. I started to dream again--and dream BIG.

Then, I saw those dreams start coming to life, and quickly. Big, lifelong dreams like a trip to Italy and a dream house super-similar to the listing I’d printed out and kept in my bedside stand 5 years before.

Giving yourself that permission, that gift, is a fantastic way to start getting the answers you desire. It re-connects you to your intuition. It’s like giving your brain a breath of fresh air instead of the stale, recycled one it’s been using.

Though strategy and action are important, it’s not JUST about them, and in fact, they’re probably not as important as you’re making them. It’s just as much about re-training your brain to default to self-belief instead of sneaky self-sabotage (which, of course, in itself, is strategy AND taking action 😉)

Have you found this to be true in your own life and business? Or is it something you’re willing to play with? Which parts of my story can you relate to? Share below!
