The other day when I was having a moment (aka little tantrum) about something that wasn't working, my coach totally challenged me on it.
He said that I'm living in the 'what if it doesn't work out' world. It makes me sad, it makes me hopeless, and it fills me with doubt.
Then he went on to say, "you know Melissa, you've really given this way of thinking a good try. You've thoroughly explored the 'what if it doesn't work out' approach, and it hasn't gotten you very far."
"What if you just started living like it is possible?" he said.
I couldn't argue with him so I decided to go with it.
The thing is, we all have doubts and fears and it's a really normal part of being human.
We all invest time and energy asking the questions "what if?"
Since you're asking anyway, why not start asking "what if it does work out?".
"What if it is possible?"
I'm betting the results you get will be so much better.
If you'd like to hear more of my take on this, check out this video that I actually made 6 months ago. I'm going to shut up and listen to myself.
Perhaps a little shift in mindset might go a long way for you also.
PS. If you need some help to get back on the self-belief train, let's have a chat. That's one thing coaches can do, look from the outside in, and help you see more clearly.
PPS Don't forget, today is your final day to talk to me about a coaching package at 15% off. The New Year's sale is about to wrap up!
It's been 2 years since I last discounted my coaching prices and it will likely be longer than that before it happens again. If you've ever considered working with your own coach to take your life and business to a whole new level, now is the time to get in touch.
