I get it.
Will I get sick? Will my family be safe?
Will the economy collapse?
Where will the money come from?
Will my business survive?
How will I get my clients?
What will I do next?
Does this mean the end of my business?
I was there. Back in 2013. No global pandemic required.
I was running my global business consulting firm with lots of monetary success until one day I realized…
I suddenly had no clients.
Old projects ended and there were no new ones to start.
I couldn’t understand why so I had to pause and reflect on what was happening.
It turned out that I was the problem.
I felt unhappy and I didn’t even know why.
Contracts would come to me easily through referrals. I had lots of money for my needs.
But I couldn’t handle my own success, so I started sabotaging my business.
I didn’t follow up with prospects.
I spent money on attending trade shows and conferences to generate new leads, but I made sure to never follow up with prospects. Heck, if they asked to work with me, I would “magically” disappear.
This was going on because the true war was raging in my mind.
I was infected with the virus of unworthiness.
I was fighting myself.
I felt uncomfortable with my own growth and financial comfort.
Today, you might think that your situation is different from mine. This global pandemic sprang on so many people unexpectedly, despite their highest ambitions and efforts to move forward.
But what we have in common is that feeling of desperation… not knowing why we are standing on the precipice of a potential collapse… wondering if we’re going to fall.
I’m here to tell you…
You will not fall.
Back in 2013, when I stared at my increasingly empty checking account, I made a decision.
I was going to figure this out.
I was going to understand why I doubted myself; why I doubted my own ability to succeed when all the years of experience and a solid track record of success were staring at my face.
I realized then that the childhood beliefs embedded in me when I was growing up in the communist Poland – being humble, keeping your head down, accepting lack, poverty, and mediocre results – all of that disempowerment was looping continuously in my head, causing me to sabotage my own success.
But I didn’t let it bring me down.
I spend months releasing the memories of the past and reprogramming my brain to create a new powerful set of beliefs.
I said to myself:
I can rely on me.
I can count on me.
I can rise to any occasion in my life.
I can conquer my fears.
I can heal my feelings of unworthiness.
I can overcome fears of success.
I can do it!
I remembered the iconic morale-boosting “We Can Do It!” poster from World War II with a woman flaunting a bicep on her arm.
The effort paid off. I bounced back, made my money again, and felt better than ever before.
And you can, too.
So I invite you to say: “I can do it. No matter the circumstances. No matter the economy. I can count on me.”
You have gone through ups and downs in your entrepreneurial career.
You’ve seen abundance, and you’ve seen lack.
But what you have is a track record of success.
Over the years, you have risen to the occasion. You’ve stepped forward. You’ve overcome your challenges. You’ve conquered your fears. You’ve done whatever is necessary to move forward.
So take another step today.
What is it for you?
Perhaps you need to change the model of your business and transition to online services.
And if you’re not able to do that, maybe you have to ride the wave and use this time to learn something new.
Ask yourself: “Where efficiencies can technology provide for my services? What are new trends in the market? What innovative ideas can I implement once these uncertain times are over?”
It doesn’t matter if a coronavirus, a tornado, or any natural disaster will strike tomorrow.
What matters is your perseverance.
Your determination to keep going because you can count on you.
You have proven to yourself that you can swim and keep your head above the water.
Now is the time. Start swimming again.
You can do it!
To your success,
