Episode 300: How to Break Out of Accidental Entrepreneur Mode and Into Purpose and Intention w/Christy Wright
70% of Americans don’t like their day jobs. This statistic could apply to stay-at-home moms too, not just those who work outside the home. On this episode: speaker, author, and coach Christy Wright shares valuable insights on these topics. Why is it smart for women to create something that allows them to put their talents to good use? How important is it to step back from all the action in your business so you can actually formulate a plan? Why is it so easy to fall into the trap of all the sporadic, brilliant information that’s out there?
You will achieve more in life when you start by simply assuming that you can. If you assume that you can’t, you’re not even going to try. -Christy Wright
3 Things We Learned From This Episode
Always assume that you can (06:31 – 06:57)
It’s better to move through life believing that you can do whatever you set your mind to, because you will always be willing to try. If you believe you can’t, you won’t even bother to challenge yourself or try something new.
If you wait for permission, you’ll wait forever (07:51 – 08:11)
Before trying something new, a lot of people wait for permission from someone else or for proof that they’ll be successful. Don’t wait for these things.
Make sure you have a long term vision for your business (11:38 – 12:25)
If you don’t know what your vision is for your business, and you don’t give it a little thought, you’ll end up going in a direction you don’t want. You’ll also compare yourself to everyone else and start becoming someone you’re not.
Whether you’re an introvert or an extrovert, we all experience fear. Nothing neutralizes fear like the willingness to try something new, even if you fall flat on your face. You don’t have to be perfect or delusionally confident when you’ve never done something. You just have to be willing to give it a chance. When it comes to your business, it’s so easy to get caught up in all of the activities and tasks, but it’s crucial to make sure you actually have a plan for your business. The world is filled with lots of brilliant tidbits of information, but if it’s not organized in a plan, you might find yourself lost at the end of it all.
