It may sound counterintuitive, but fear, resistance and failure are central to your success as an entrepreneur! In fact, if you can embrace these feelings and actions, then you may be on the verge of a business breakthrough - and a spiritual one, too.
Let's face it, all entrepreneurs, no matter how successful they are, hit a rough patch now and then. This is something I like to call the dark-night-of-the-business-soul. Believe me, I know - because I've been there myself (more than once!)
Does this sound at all familiar? You're procrastinating big tasks that are central to your success; you're spending a lot of time networking, but have too few clients to show for it (you're having trouble selling yourself); your head and heart are often in conflict; and most importantly, you are just not having fun anymore? If you said yes to any of these, then you are likely suffering from dark nights.
I've seen so many people struggling recently with these dark nights - believe me, you are not alone. So how do you get past them? It's all about starting from the inside out and defining what it is that you really want to do. It's about finding the clarity you need to define your business strategy and leap frog forward.
My entire journey as an entrepreneur has been about integrating my spiritual understanding with my professional knowledge. When those two things merge, magic happens. I feel whole and complete, I don't worry, I have confidence, I offer products that resonate with people, and people invest a lot of money in my programs.
If you can learn embrace your failures, use them to your advantage and take the next step forward, it will be like entering a wormhole and coming out five years in the future living the life - and running the business - of your dreams. If you can face these dark nights head on, learn from them and break through them, you are on the verge of a massive, life and business-changing experience that will change everything.
