Your banging your head against the wall again.
Your eyeballs are throbbing. It's two a.m. and your brain is spinning with all these steps you need to take to make this thing work.
They say it is simple, but there are so many damn moving parts to keep track of and I need to be doing.......
If you are an entrepreneur or a wantreprenuer then chances are this describes you along your journey.
It's what I like to call Chronic Over Complication and it is causing you to fail.
Yep that's right. It's causing you to fail.
I should know I have suffered from Chronic Over Complication for years. It has left me in tears. Had me up on countless sleepless nights worrying about how to find that little secret that everyone must be leaving out. Not to mention too distracted to pay attention, run my business, or the list goes on.
When someone would tell me something was simple I would automatically say "ah and I could add this and this and that to make it work even better." By the time I was done with a simple 3 step plan it was usually more like 87 steps.
It was has kept me failing again and again in the past.
But why do we do this to ourselves?
Why do we set ourselves up for failure?
We all know the Keep It Simple Sweetness phrase and we all know that something works best when it is simple to do. Yet we keep adding things in....
There really are only two reasons as to why you are suffering from Chronic Over Complication.
You truly don't want it. You say you do. You talk about it. But you don't really want it.
They tell you it is simple, but you don't really believe that it is. I mean if it was then wouldn't everybody be doing this? Shouldn't it be harder to achieve what you want?
And there in lies the rub!
And if you look at it both of these issues really are the same thing.
Why would you not want to be successful? Maybe you believe that successful people have no time to be with their loved ones. Maybe you think they have to sit on their phone or their computers all day. Maybe you feel that money is the root of all evil. Maybe you believe that you don't have what it takes to be successful.
Or maybe you think that you just don't deserve to be successful. Or that being successful is selfish.
That last one was something I did not even know I thought until recently.
Ding, ding, ding! We have a winner and a reason for Chronic Over Complication.
But how do you change this if you are suffering from it?
You would want to know how to fix it, right?
Well again there are two options....
First you can just quit. Give up. Throw in the towel and say to hell with it. I give you premission to punch a time clock for someone else and just be happy with living life on someone else's terms.
Go on just quit!
Good! I knew you weren't a quitter. But I wanted to give you the option first. For those that take it well then I wish them all the happiness in the world. But I also know that quitting isn't an option for you. Just like it isn't for me.
Now let's get started in fixing that belief so you can get to work on following the simple plan.
First thing you need is a simple plan. If you don't have a simple system for creating the life you want or the success you deserve then you can use mine. Just click here.
Next you need to keep yourself inspires with the stories of those that have created what it is you want to create. Making sure to inspire yourself daily with reading, listening, or watching these stories will change how you see the world and think over time. Here's a great resource for that.
Don' t make the mistake of stopping when you have changed your mindset! Many people think they don't need to continue their personal development after a certain point and then revert back to old thought processes without knowing it.
And lastly you want to make this work don't you?
Take action. Follow the steps laid out for you. Do them. And remember to keep it simple. Remember to follow the steps and don't add your own. Just do it.
Resist the urge to add steps. You will in the beginning. Cut yourself some slack and screw in your resolve to stick to the simple.
You can do this, can't you?
Remember I believe in you! And your success is in important to me.
Make Your Life Awesome Because Only You Can,
I believe in you!.
