Stop sabotaging your dream! Let me tell you my story as a Creative DREAMER and how I sabotaged my own DREAM. I’ll tell you what I stopped doing the make my DREAM come true.
I started my business almost 15 years ago and I neglected and sabotaged my DREAM far too long.
If you don’t want to work to get your DREAM, this is not for you!
But if you do want to do the work, you’re eager to learn and want to put steps towards your DREAM, keep reading.
STOP sabotaging your DREAM by listening to everybody
Probably when you started to think about starting your own DREAM Business or decided to do that, you started Googling? Right!
What happened, did you get even more excited and enthusiastic or did your heart sank into your boots? So many opinions, so many advices, so many things to do that have nothing to do with you DREAM, sounds familiar?
My DREAM suddenly disappeared and seemed impossible, but I am no quitter so I read and read and watched dozens of videos and became really good at a lot of business-related stuff. But I was throwing spaghetti at the wall. I had no idea what I was doing.
So STOP sabotaging your DREAM by listening to everybody and try a bit of this and a bit of that, it will take a long time to get to your DREAM if you ever get there, believe me I know!
STOP doing everything alone
I am not sure when I realized that I was working 60 hours a week and not 1 of them had anything to do with my Passion, Designing and Creating, the things that make me happy and energetic. I was working too hard, cranky, and further from my DREAM than ever.
Is this it, is this how my DREAM should look like?
I struggled a few years before I got an opportunity to get some help from a coach. Instead of working on my DREAM and getting my business on the road, I discovered that the DREAM I had wasn’t MY DREAM. It was what I thought that I should do to be able to earn money because without money it’s a hobby, not a business.
I don’t need to be rich, but I need to be independent and able to pay my bills and have some left to enjoy life.
So STOP doing everything alone and let people with experience help you. There are many ways to find help, not only coaching is the way to go. I started to rethink what MY DREAM was and learned to specialize more to have a more targeted audience.
STOP focusing on earning money.
I learned a lot about what having a business looked like and what you need to run a business. But I still was focused on what I should do and what would earn me money, earning money became more and more the focus and my DREAM was far away, although I didn’t realize it then.
If you do the right things, money will become a result eventually.
Stop blaming yourself
About ten years ago I got the diagnosis ADD. Focusing, planning concentrating are all areas that take a lot of energy, but they are the cornerstones that bring you to success, no matter how success looks like.
I STOPPED blaming myself for being stupid and lazy because I am not, but I wasn’t ready to give up and accept that I might not be able to do this. I was determined to prove that I could, even with ADD! Learning that I don’t have to do it alone. You need people that support you, that help you if you don’t know what to do, or just help you keep motivated.
STOP taking everything on your own shoulders
So STOP taking everything on your own shoulders and find people to talk to and spar with. If you think you don’t have anybody, please feel welcome to join my FREE FB group where like-minded people come together and find a buddy there.
STOP waiting to invest in yourself
A few years ago I didn’t do much in my business anymore and I was feeling empty. After a while I started to see the DREAM I had for myself and for the first time, it was MY DREAM. I was scared to talk about it because in my feeling I had failed so many times and changing my business again, people wouldn’t understand.
So I started on my own shifting my business 180 degrees and even though I had a lot of knowledge I fell into a lot of the same mistakes. After a few months, I decided that it was enough, I had been sabotaging myself long enough and I needed to make a decision. Quit or find some decent professional help!
I bought a coaching program and was determined to give it a last shot. The coaching was disappointing, but I reloaded enough of my previous knowledge to motivate me to get it right this time. I even bought another coaching program with more individual guidance and started to work through the program.
STOP waiting to invest in yourself, it can save you years! I thought I don’t have money but I do have time so I figure it out on my own even after all these lessons I wanted to do it on my own I didn’t want to spend any money I wasn’t sure I would earn back.
I invested more in the last coaching program than I had, I even had to borrow some! It’s the best decision I made. I made a plan and set targets to get to my DREAM.
STOP working without a plan and clear Goals
If you don’t know where you are going, you won’t get there. But also if you know where you want to go, but you don’t know how to get there you need a GPS or a routemap.
If you’re still here and you think my story sounds like yours or could be.
