Can we trust our feelings?

Can We Really Trust Our Feelings When It Comes to “Not Wanting to Work”?

All right. Truth? For the last month I’ve not felt like working, and I feel a little guilty about it.

But I bet you’ve felt like this, too. Sometimes it’s because you’re burnt out,and other times you just don’t feel like it. You’re bored!

It can really play a number on making you feel guilty!

For me, I feel like I’ve built this great company, but sometimes showing up to the office feels more like a JOB than this beautiful, meaningful “change the world” passion that was present when I first started this venture.

Can you relate?

Well, the cool thing about our actions is they first get inspired in our heads.  Meaning, our thoughts. First we have a thought, then there’s an emotion attached to it, and next we make a move.

So at least we know where the problem starts . . . But that’s not what you’re here to read. You’ve heard that before. Let me show you what’s really causing this issue for you!

Oh, and let’s not forget that “the way you do one thing is the way you do everything”!

So now we can stop looking JUST at your business. Let’s peek into the other areas of your life.

If you are still reading, chances are you are feeling uninspired about building your business right now. And somehow it’s become more of a JOB than a pleasure.

So let me tell you what’s happened and better yet what you can do about it to get your life and your business back on track! Because the truth is, you want to be happy, right?

Let’s do what it takes to move this icky energy and get things rolling again!

The Truth About When You Lose Your Passion

There are TWO truths for a woman entrepreneur who loses her passion.

#1 You just reached a goal!

Or #2 You don’t have a Business that Fires you up!

Solution for #1

When any of us reach a goal, we all tend to DEFLATE! There’s nothing more to look forward to. So look in your business right now and see: have you recently reached a goal?  Made a sale, built a list, or something that was important to you?

If that’s it, the solution is to get a new PURPOSE for what you are doing.  Set a new goal that you care about ASAP! We are humans and we like to feel useful. When you have no real love for what you are doing, you lose the passion! So inspire love in your business again.

Solution #2

If your problem is that you don’t have a business that FIRES you up, then chances are you are either in the wrong field and you should get some business coaching to help you get on track or you don’t have a good plan to make more money!

When you aren’t clear, it doesn’t matter how hard you work; you can’t do a good job. And as women, our biggest problem is often that we are trying to strive for perfection, so being UNCLEAR really makes us feel frustrated toward our business.

I hope this helped.  Leave me a comment below.  I’d love to hear from you.
