Push. Heave. Ugh! Sweat. Tears. Exhaustion.
Pushing is what must happen to birth a child.
But there is also a time and a place for pushing.
To push for the sake of pushing can create insanity and overwhelm.
I know because I spent last year pushing way too hard in my business.
And I am still exhausted.
Can you relate?
The support I received from my business mentor was all about taking action and pushing through.
Push through the resistance.
Push past the fear.
Push past and ignore the truth.
So I pushed. I kept doing the things that didn't feel correct for me. I put myself out there, doing Facebook Lives and boosting ads.
It's really no surprise that I began burning out and Facebook banned my ad account.
It's in those moments that defeat comes up. Exhaustion leads to frustration which leads to beating ourselves up. We second guess our decisions. We believe we are not cut out for this work. We conclude that success is not for us - that it's only for everyone else.
But success IS for everyone of us.
It IS for me.
It IS for you.
