Emotions? Who would have thought that they would be one of the keys to master for your business success?
If you are a heart-based entrepreneur or are dreaming of the possibility of starting your own business by sharing your knowledge and skills, you will learn that more often than not is not about what you know about business…
Is about how you feel about yourself and all the emotions that come with it when you feel exposed and vulnerable enough to share your work and get paid for it.
The idea of selling, delivering and getting paid can cause panic to some people and I will be straight to the point, that happens because a lot of us when growing up, did not hear from the people around us that we were good at something, that we were special or that we could make money by doing the work we absolutely love.
The need for validation or someone seeing you and approving you is reflected in your work. You seek the validation of potential clients and people around you to tell you that your work is good enough and worthy of being paid for.
And that can be an endless cycle of waiting to be seen and to be chosen.
A lot of entrepreneurs give up before they even get started… not because they were not capable of doing it but because they did not believe they could and perhaps their inability of processing uncomfortable emotions.
And with self-belief comes uncomfortable emotions. A lot of us never had the chance to learn how to deal with our emotions in a healthy way or even that is healthy to feel, so we rather run away from them because again, they are super uncomfortable, and what are you supposed to do with it? How do you change them? How do you "fix it"?
Remember that time you didn’t have the best grade at school or a time when a family member compared you to your cousin or sister/brother, or even when everybody around you seemed so talented and had their shit together and you could not feel the same about yourself, or even the time you had to become mature at a young age to look after others and felt that nobody was there to look after you (hello carers, healers, therapists, mentors and coaches).
Let me say that the people that are the most talented and the best at what they do are the less confident ones, they are the ones who find it hard to believe they have something valuable to offer.. more often than not they were the “ugly duckling” in their families, they were bullied at school, they were the ones that did not fit in…
They are the ones that struggle to take that first step and put their work all there, to charge good money for their services because they make it about themselves, about their worth, about who they are. Their businesses reflect back on them all they believe about themselves and that is scary. (what you think about yourself is not the ultimate truth, just so you know).
The fear of failure, of letting people down, of being a fraud or not being recognised is bigger than the faith in themselves. Ouch, that’s tough.
The good thing is… if you’re going through this yourself, know that underneath all of those feelings, there is a badass, genius and extremely successful entrepreneur that is capable of doing massive good in the world and getting paid massive compensation for it.. that is you!
Learning to deal with uncomfortable emotions is just one more thing you have to do in life, apart from all the challenges you have already been through.. it can be scary at the beginning but that does not necessarily have to be a bad thing… I can guarantee you that this actually is going to be the key that will transform your life and business and bring to you all you have ever prayed and wished for.. the freedom to do you and be yourself!
