Welcome back to the Become a Heartpreneur Series, where weíve been talking about how to do well by doing good and connecting to your calling while still making the moolah. This next installation in the series is aimed specifically at those of you who have taken a leap of faith in order to fulfill your lifeís destiny, only to find yourself stuck.
Does this sound like you?
Are you a woman entrepreneur who risked everything to pursue your passion, only to find that things arenít working out according to plan? Do you worry what everyone will think if you canít make it after all that youíve given up? Do you just know youíre here on earth to change the world, even though the stars donít seem to be aligning right now?
Are you ready to finally get out of your own way so you can skyrocket to the stratosphere?
Oh yeah, baby. Trust me. I hear you.
I know how exciting it was when you took that leap of faith (or got pushed off the cliff) and decided to launch your own business. You trusted the process and had a gut feeling of rightness that built your confidence and led you to believe that the stars would all align. You invested your hard-earned money, spent a boatload of time working for free, and maybe even quit that stable soul-sucking job so you could really focus on doing what you love.
You felt called to do something that would change the world and leave your mark.
But now you feel confused and lost because things just arenít happening the way you dreamed they would. The clients are trickling in, but nobodyís beating down your door. Your product isnít flying off the shelves. Youíre having trouble enrolling participants in your events. And your expenses are rising so much faster than your income that you feel like youíre drowning.
Your greatest fear is that youíll have to abandon your big dream and go back to the hell you lived through before you started doing what you love.
The worst part is that you just donít understand how this could happen. You listened to all the signs from the Universe, read The Secret, did your business homework, and focused on your manifestation exercises. Youíve heeded advice from others, clarified what you long to create, and worked your butt off to make your dream come true.
So why isn’t it all happening?
You canít help comparing yourself to others who seem to get all the breaks. You start to doubt yourself. All that confidence you felt in the beginning is seeping out of your pores, and youíre left with this sinking feeling that you just donít have what it takes to make it big. You wonder if you misinterpreted the signs that led you to take this leap. And you start to feel really, really alone.
Why has the Universe let you down when youíre only trying to help others and leave the world a better place than you found it?
