Have you ever woken up with a pit in your stomach? Oh my gosh, I have! That creeping feeling of doubt that says that you will never get where you want to go can be an unwelcome friend when you are starting your own business.
The good news is that if you are feeling resistance, you are on the right track. Resistance, or doubt, is the knowing that you have that you are attempting something that is not only hard, but that is important to you.
The question then becomes, what do you do with the feeling? If you honor it, you will stop dead in your tracks. You won’t get into your office, you won’t make the calls that could make a difference in your business and you won’t develop products and processes that will take your business to the next level.
What you can do with the feeling is ignore it. I know, not a popular thought in our analytical culture, but really, you can! You see, feelings follow action. When you feel doubt, the best thing to do is to get moving. Take action. Make phone calls, schedule a session with a coach, visit the SBA, do research, schedule a lunch. You will find that within a short amount of time the doubt has dissipated.
You will feel doubt. That is part of growth. How you handle it is the measure of how much you want to achieve your goals.
