I’m always so humbled by the conversations I get to have with incredible entrepreneurs like yourself. One thing I’ve noticed is that no matter what stage we are in our business, we all face obstacles. Today I wanted to take a moment to talk about the ones that I hear most often. The ones that trip people up on their road to success.
“I can’t put it out unless it’s perfect”
Boo boo, there’s no such thing as perfection! In fact, one thing I’ve learned in my journey as an entrepreneur is that done is better than perfect! It might not be exactly as you planned or look the way you envisioned, but moving forward will get you closer than where you are. Repeat this with me until you believe it, “I’m striving for progress over perfection.”
“What are people going to say?”
This is such a big one! We can either worry about what others will think and say, or we can pursue our dreams and build our business knowing we can’t please everyone all of the time. No matter what we do, people will always have something to say. It’s up to us to decide that we know what’s best for our business and to move forward without caring what they say. Trust me, you’ll look back one day knowing you wouldn’t be where you are if you’d listened to everyone else about your business.
“I don’t have enough time”
I once heard someone say that we all have the same amount of time in a day, it’s up to us how to use it. It’s a nice way of saying that we have to learn how to prioritize and make time for the things that matter. When it comes to running a business, there are so many things that need to get done. It’s not a matter of having time but making time. That might mean getting up a little earlier, building your side hustle on your lunch break, sending out collab DMs on your morning walk, or late night tasks instead of Netflix on the couch. This is where we prove how hungry we are for our hustle because it’s not a matter of time but what we do with it.
So friend, if you’re struggling with any of these things, know that you aren’t alone. These are just some of the things we face during our road to success. Know that the road to success is riddled with obstacles and challenges but it’s up to us to overcome them even if sometimes we impose them ourselves.
