Yesterday, I was being coached by my partner in my coaching program.
He and I were diving into the stress and anxiety I feel over money and growing my business.
I thought we were heading in the direction of:
“I’m doing great. I don’t need to feel this anxious.”
But then things took a turn and I had a simple but unexpected insight:
You’re very new at this whole ‘running a business’ thing. It’s perfectly natural to be stressed out.
I’ve been coaching for nine months. Did I think I would be making six figures at this point?
I have 12 regular paying clients. I’m serving others. I’m helping people take action toward the things that matter most to them.
I’ve been thinking that something’s wrong because I’m not totally financially set yet.
But nothing’s wrong.
Everything is as it should be, including the stress.
Realizing that anxiety is perfectly normal makes me less anxious.
The only option for me is to continue doing the work and stay on this trajectory.
A year from now, I’m excited to look back and smile at this blog post.
