  • Making Hard Choices in Business

Last updated on October 9, 2023

In today's episode, I'll take you on a personal journey where I faced tough decisions in my business. It all started with a commitment to speak at the "Make Your Mark" conference in Dallas, a fantastic opportunity. However, as the months passed, I found myself falling behind in non-essential tasks, overwhelmed by work-related travel and family commitments.

By July, I was physically drained, experiencing something new: physical burnout. This was different from the emotional burnout I'd encountered before. I realized I needed to prioritize my health. I made changes like reevaluating my client support approach and rescheduling launches.

I also had to confront my fears and unproductive thoughts. I shifted from "Red Flag" thoughts, which hinder progress, to "Green Flag" thoughts, which empower action. These included:

  1. My business success doesn't require sacrificing my health.
  2. I'm human, and perfection isn't necessary.
  3. My success depends on me, not just the strategy.
  4. I can handle the consequences of my choices.
  5. My business transcends one season of my life.

Ultimately, I decided to withdraw from the conference, despite my initial concerns about relationships and opportunities. It turned out to be the right choice. My health improved, I established better workflows, and my business gained predictability. Our Q3 Mastermind launch was challenging, but I faced the consequences confidently.

Through this journey, I've become a more resilient and focused coach. I've learned that no matter the circumstances, you can find a way to create success. Your results are inevitable if you believe in them.
