You need to train your brain to think like an entrepreneur. 🏋️
Most of us have been trained to think like employees, here in our American society and in the typical education system. You have an assignment in school, and you have a rubric that says if you do these things = you get this grade. Starting as young as elementary school, your teacher is your boss. Then you need to go out and get a job. You have a job description. That’s the safe thing to do. And you work until retirement when you finally get to do what you wanted to do your whole life.
That’s not the life you wanted, but you’re totally overwhelmed and afraid.
You don't know what to do next or instead. Fear is a powerful motivator. That’s how our bodies and brains are hardwired. Generations ago, fear kept humans from getting eaten by a bear or a lion. Fear kept you alive. We don’t have to live like that in our modern society. It’s only been a couple of generations and really our brains haven’t caught up with it yet. It’s a conscious choice to recognize and become aware - to choose differently from the safe path. If we’re good and responsible and practical people, we check all the boxes and get the safe job with the predictability and the steady paycheck. As high-achievers we are usually all of those things. So it creates a real values conflict in our brains when we want something different but we’re scared because we think it’s stupid or impractical or it might fail.
Have you felt this conflict in your mind? 🤯 Have you deeply felt this internal wrestling match?
