There are three things we believe every entrepreneur should understand in order to access freedom.
Because in so many cases, people tend to stop too early.
They quit … but even worse, they don’t even realize they’re quitting.
Today, we want to share with you three steps to stretch yourself, stretch your limits, without breaking … so you can create exactly what you want to create in your life—and your business.
Step 1. Expect that there will be some tests.
Most of us know there will be tests we must pass before we reach our goals.
Yet, when we’re in the thick of those tests, we often retract, get angry, or tell ourselves we need something different.
And worse, in that moment, we don’t even realize we’re doing it, because we’re so convinced that we’re right (about needing something different).
If you encounter a test, and you drop into the conversation about needing something different, needing more structure, for example, then you don’t pass the test.
Here’s the thing: The universe, or God, or whatever higher power you believe in, will test you, over and over again. And you’re never going to get away from having to pass those tests. Nobody can pass them for you.
In fact, the universe, or God, or your higher power, gives you these tests to help you advance to the next level in a certain area.
There is no coaching on the planet that will help you pass these tests—you’ve simply got to buckle up and do it.
Action step: Take a moment and ask yourself where are giving up responsibility right now, telling yourself you still need something else in order to create a result?
If you’re standing in a place where you believe you need something—more support, more training, more whatever—then you’ve given up your own power.
Break down the conversation inside your head, and take opportunities as they come up. Do what it takes to pass the test.
Step 2. Expect that you’re going to leave some people behind.
There are people in your life who you just won’t hang out with any more. Even people you consider good friends.
Sometimes the people who are closest to you tell you that you’ve done enough, and that you should hold back. In other words, that you should stop pursuing your dreams.
That’s because they don’t have the same calling on their life that you do.
Shanda Sumpter, HeartCore Business™ Queen Visionary, said she believes one of the reasons she grew her business so fast (it’s now approaching eight figures) is because she put on blinders, followed her coach’s advice, and pursued her dream with relentless determination.
“Leaving people behind” doesn’t mean you have to cut people out of your life or be judgmental. It means you have to guard your mind when you spend time with these people—because they’re the people who will encourage you to pull back rather than push forward.
Action step: Be selective about who you spend your time with. Find a mastermind or community—organized or unofficial—of likeminded people who are pursuing big visions like you are.
Each one of us needs a community to pull us forward.
Step 3. Have faith.
You don’t have to be religious to follow this piece—but you do have to be spiritual. The Bible (in the book of Hebrew) tells you that you have to have faith and demonstrate faith in certain things.
When it comes to business, you must have faith that God, or the universe, or your higher power, has a plan for you—that you will be able to create your vision.
You have to have deep faith, and practice the principles in scripture on a daily basis.
Have faith that what you need is within you.
Action step: Understand the laws of the universe, and how to deepen your faith … because having faith is a major component in creating your vision and your success.
In conclusion … Everything you need is already within you! Utilize what you have, the opportunities that arise, and stop fearing making the wrong decision. Complete what you start, and, while taking the necessary steps, have faith!
