How do you decide what’s possible for you?
Where do you look?
If it’s something you’ve never done before, you can’t look to the past for evidence. You won’t find it there.
You can check what other people are doing, but context is key. Your life is not the same as anyone else’s.
Here’s a way that always works:
Decide what is possible for you.
Declare who you are to yourself.
Create the future with your being.
By the way you show up now.
It’s who you are BEING that determines what’s possible.
Your inner stance.
The combination of the way you think, feel, and act forms your self-concept and it’s the source of your power to create.
So who are you, really?
When there’s an obstacle in your business, do you jump to what you can DO about it?
The first thing to do is consider the way you are BEING about it.
If revenue is down, an employee quits, or a client cancels, it’s not evidence that you won’t succeed.
But if your self-concept is you’re the owner of a struggling business and you don’t know what you’re doing, you won’t see it that way. You’ll take frantic action fueled by doubt.
If your self-concept is you’re the owner of a valuable business, you’ll look to see how this is happening FOR you. You’ll interpret the messages from the environment around you as information designed to help you get to the future. You’ll take decisive action with confidence.
You’ll learn and grow.
Because you relate to problems as temporary obstacles.
They don’t define you.
Decide that what’s possible for you is not in question.
What do you currently believe is impossible?
-Doubling your revenue in a year
-Working half the hours for the same profit
-Turning your services into products that scale
Lots of things used to be impossible that we do all the time:
-Talk to people in real-time anywhere in the world.
-Cook with microwaves.
-Fly through the air.
It’s time to change your relationship with what’s possible.
Because “impossible” is temporary in the face of who you are being.
