Here's why you "feel" stuck in your business

"Emotions are action-requiring neurological impulses." -Karla McLaren

If you've followed the Soul Intelligence blog for a while, you know that my focus is not only on helping you with your marketing strategy- but also your mindset [more specifically- your soul (e.g. mind, will and emotions)]. Both are important parts of building and growing a successful business.

Right now, you may be needlessly suffering in your business. Whether you're an established or a new entrepreneur, it's easy to allow your circumstances to move you into a state of inaction and inertia (where you feel alone and stuck in a bottomless pit).

Feeling stuck makes you a victim in your business. And being a victim is a choice that awakens these three self-imposed, immobilizing emotions (these are the reasons you feel stuck):

  • Confusion- When you're confused about what you do or how people actually benefit from working with you, it's impossible to be a client magnet. When you're confused about how you should attract clients, you're probably unconsciously are telling yourself that you don't know what to do dozens of times per day. Do you see how this creates a stuck, victim mentality?
  • Fear- Maybe you know what you could be doing to bring in more business, but you're afraid to do it (whether that's attending/hosting an event or hiring a coach like me). F.E.A.R is nothing more than an acronym for "False Evidence Appearing Real." Fear will paralyze your best intentions. It will talk you out of acting on what you know is your next best course of action.

  • Frustration- Your past efforts didn't yield results, so now you're in a cycle of believing that nothing will ever work. Frustration usually leads to a desire to give up on your business. I want you go let go of frustration and give up on giving up! You just need an objective set of eyes to look at what you're doing.
Understand that these emotions are not the result of being stuck; but the actual cause of your "stuckness." If you find yourself experiencing in any of these self-defeating states, it's time to take action. Action trumps emotion every time.

There's an old saying that goes, "Even when you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there."

It's not going to be magic that brings you more clients-- it's going to be getting the right strategy and support!
