Do you ever get to be in a room where you feel so incredibly motivated by the people surrounding you that you can hardly take it?
That was totally what happened last Friday for me at Ursula’s Quantum Sales Summit. The room was packed with business owners who were ready to take their biz to the next level and some who seemed to be setting the bar for everyone else. She flew in a few speakers from across the country, but also had 2 panels of biz peeps who fast tracked their businesses in the last year. Talk about motivating, right?!
I was super humbled to be one of those people on the first panel, but still was in awe of the women I was sitting up there with thinking, “WOW! Do I really get to be grouped with these ah-mazing ladies?!”
We all shared our tips on how we doubled and/or tripled our sales thanks to Ursula and her brilliance. But even I was a little intimidated by some of the goals these other people were fast tracking.
When the second panel got up, Ursula added another question for them to talk about. “What do you do on those days when you feel like giving up?”
Reality Check. Yes, even those people that seem to have it all together and are going to grow to a million dollars or more have those days when they want to throw in the towel. Yet, it’s easy to think that you’re the only one that this happens to. Pst… you’re not!
I can’t stress how important it is that we think about this for a moment and continue the conversation about it. We all have craziness surrounding us + we need to know we are among others who are feeling the same way.
Maybe you’re having one of those days right now- sales aren’t where you want them to be, a client stopped working with you, you feel pressure from your team, you feel like a failure in one way or another… the list could go on and on.
So what are some ways to keep rockin’ your biz?
- Have an accountability partner to pull you out of your rut. Yes, you need that biz bestie you can reach out to and be completely honest and raw with. Now, this is not an excuse to get stuck in a pity party- share your frustrations and where you feel stuck, but then pull your big girl biz pants up and take action. If they are a good accountability partner, they will push you to there.
- Remember- you are doing something totally freakin’ awesome. Yes, you have something that other people need. And remember, you took your dream and made it a reality. Not everyone can say they’ve done that, so that alone proves you’ve got rockstar status.
- Count your blessings. For everything that you think is going wrong, I promise you that there are a 100 things that are going right- even if you don’t want to see it that way. Believe me, I’ve been down in the dumps and want to dwell there vs looking at all the cool people I get to hang with + serve. Rise up and remember what you might think are “failures” are just learning lessons to get you to the next step.
Yes, I have many of these days, but I won’t allow them to keep me down. If you’ve got a tip to keep you rockin’ even when you get down or intimidated by other successful peeps, I want to know.
No one said this biz thing was easy, but you are among the brave that took the leap of faith on this crazy journey to lead you to a life worth living.
