I had a big “ah-ha” about a month ago. On one level it seems super obvious, on another level I just don’t think about it. You can change your story, simply by changing how you’re using your imagination.
It started with “why am I stuck”? “Why am I not doing what I know I want to do and need to do to grow my business?”
I realized something…
Fear and Imagination = Inaction
You know those tricky mindsets, voices in our head that hold us back.
“I can’t go Live because someone’s going to think I’m a fraud. I’m going to stumble and lose my train of thought. It’s going to come across so unprofessional, no one going to listen.”
“I can’t send 3 emails a week. No one is interested in what I have to say. If I do people are going to start unsubscribing or even worst mark it a SPAM.”
Guess what? None of that is has happened. None of it is true. It’s our tricky imagination going down the fear path.
What if we flip it to where possibility, curiosity, and imagination work together?
Possibility, Curiosity and Imagination = ACTION
Let’s rewrite those stories.
“If I go Live today, I could connect with someone new. I could show up just at the right time when they need to hear what I have to share. They aren’t going to care if I stumble a bit, after all, I’m only human. If I go Live today maybe I’ll be able to help one person. I get better at it each time I do.”
“If I send emails this week, I’m not intruding, people can choose to read them or not. I wonder who will connect with my message/offer. It will be awesome when I hear back from people like I did last week. I wonder how many people will check out my new offer. I’m excited to see what happens.”
Which stories are more powerful? Which stories have you leaning in and be ready to act?
Fear is a normal emotion!
Fear is a normal emotion, it one of our basic emotions. However, it’s what we do with it that will make the difference.
When fear is holding you back, challenge the story that your imagination is creating. Turn to curiosity and possibility and let that be the fuel that launches you into action and your awesomeness!
You can change your story today by leading with curiosity and possibility, not fear.
What stories do you need to change? What would it do for you business if you do?
