About this episode.
Does ready really exist? Ever told yourself you'll feel ready when you have 1000 followers, one more month experience, when next Monday comes or when you finish that last subject only to find when you've achieved any of those things, you don't feel any different or more ready? You're not alone!
Ready is quite simply a state. And we can chose to be ready right here and right now.
No permission slip required, no more Monday's need to pass, you don't need any more followers on Instagram. All you need to do is decide. Decide that you are ready and you are going to make this dream a reality. Today.
In this weeks episode I'm exploring the concept of being 'ready' and how you can chose to be ready right now.
Hello everyone and welcome back to another episode of The Business of Perfectionism.
My name is Kristy and I am a mindset and marketing coach helping creative entrepreneurs build businesses that feel good for them so they can create impact and income doing what they love.
I was going to say you’ll never feel ready, you just have to start, but when I started mapping out this episode it hit me that I wanted to take completely different approach to this, and I wanted to dive a lot deeper into feeling ready.
If you’re waiting for a sign that you’re ready… This is it.
Ready is a state.
And you can choose to feel ready right now.
It’s up to you whether or not you decide to register that business name, open those social media accounts and start building your brand. It’s up to you.
There is no permission slip, no one but you can decide if you are ready or not.
If you believe in yourself, in your ability - you know what you want and you’re ready to take the action to achieve that, this is it, consider yourself ready.
If there is something you want to create, if you want to build a business, if you have your own dream of creating something for yourself, the perfect time - that feeling of being ready will never actually just magically appear, you just have to decide that you’re ready and take the leap.
There will always be more to learn, more to know, more to experience - your strategy will never feel like it’s perfect, your branding will probably also feel the same way especially at the start..
You’ll likely be scared to show your work, to show your face, to share your opinion and to use your voice… it will feel vulnerable, it will feel scary to start…
But I have found that getting started is actually the hardest part.
And I actually want to share with you what worked for me, what finally gave me the push to go all in, and it’s something I still do and use today because it works across almost everything in your business…
Is the identity work.
Being ready is about stepping into the next level version of yourself, the version that has already achieved the things you’re dreaming about today.
The person who shows up no matter what.
The person who is confident and goes after what they want.
That doesn’t care about what other people think.
That does the work. Every. Single. Day.
That truly believes in what they are creating, the brand they are building, the people they are impacting, helping and inspiring.
It’s about choosing to step into the identity of that person and creating and showing up, from that place - at that vibrational frequency.
One of the most fascinating things about the way the mind works is that we can make it believe whatever we want it to.
There’s an amazing man by the name of Dr Joe Dispenza, if you haven’t heard of him he is a neuroscientist and quantum physician and he has done some seriously incredible work around how the human brain works.
His research, and the research of neuroscientists and all kinds of amazing, incredible doctors has proven that we can rewire our subconscious and create any kind of reality for ourselves that we want.
There’s a technique called mental rehearsal which very simply is creating scenarios in our mind and running over and over them in detail, visualling it… it could be while journaling, meditating, hypnosis, or even just focusing in on it while you’re on your morning commute.
If you have a dream of building your business, achieve a certain level of fame or fortune, being asked to present on an international stage - if you can build an image in your mind of any of these things happening, sit with it, really feel into it, notice the things you’re thinking, feeling, seeing, hearing we can begin to program our subconscious minds to believe it’s already happened, we begin to build new neural pathways - pathways that have different beliefs of what’s possible, of what we’re able to achieve,
They bring us new levels of confidence
They help us believe that anything is possible.
They show us that anything is possible.
It will help you to show up in the way that is required for you to create exactly what it is you want.
It will close the gap between where you are right now and where you want to be.
It will help you gain clarity on what it is you want to achieve so you can actually uncover the steps that you need to take to get there.
And so, if you’re not feeling ready and you’re ready to make a change at the identity level, try asking yourself some of these questions...
Who I do need to be today in order to create the business I want?
What do I need to do today that will bring me closer to my dream?
What can I do today that will bring me one step closer to achieving my goal?
How would I show up differently today if I had already achieved these things?
What does my day and my life look like now I have achieved this?
So no matter what it is…
Whether it’s a new business, a new program, service, product - mo matter what it is.
You are ready. You can choose to be ready.
Ready is a state. And you can start whenever you want.
You can start right now.
So please, get out there, take the first step - ask yourself some of the questions I mentioned earlier.
Define what it is you want, get out there and start making it happen.
