Make sure your services matter to you

Does the work you do inspire so much, make you so excited that you literally jump out of bed  like, “Yes! This is my day! I’m so excited that I get to do all of the things”?

No? Not quite? Well, you’re not alone. Keep reading…

Most people don’t feel that way. Why? Because they do what other people have told them they should do, like, “Oh you’re really good at arguing – you should be a lawyer.” Or, “Oh, you’re really great at helping people – you should be a social worker.”

But just because you *can* do something does not mean that you *should* do something.

I’ve had so many lunches, dinners, coffee dates, etc. where people ask me privately, “How do I have this happy life? How can I actually *do* this?” and said they wanted to make a change. But in public, they were scared to say that the change should happen at all. 

Well, guess what? This is all connected to expectations and permission:

  • If you’re waiting for society to give you permission, that’s not going to happen.
  • If you’re waiting for your parents to give you permission, it’s probably not going to happen. 
  • If you’re waiting for your spouse to give you permission, it’s probably not going to happen.

So, I give you permission to give yourself permission to do the thing that makes you happy, that lights you up. And your services are attached to that.

As long you do what you THINK you’re supposed to do, you’re never going to do what lights you up. You’re always going to be living someone else’s life.

The truth is, there is a place for you in this world. And people need you to help them in your very unique way. 

So, be willing to commit to being open to see what your career and your business could look like, even if it means letting go of everything that exists now. 

Don’t be afraid – you got this!

As you go about your day, think about these questions:

  1. If you won the lottery, what would you do with your life, your money, your time? Well, we all know what you do with your money, but what would you do with *yourself*? 
  2. What do you dream about doing in your life and your business that you’re scared to death about doing?
