Wisdom Wisdom. What was the wisest decision you made this year, and how did it play out?
By far, I’d have to say that the wisest decision I made this year was to take myself and my business more seriously.
For too long, I wasted time and energy telling myself that I knew what I was doing and how to do it…all. I didn’t need help – I was a smart gal, I had all the resources.
But it turns out, until I had someone to sit down with me and show me how to create my systems I was just spinning my wheels. And until I had someone teach me that the true secret to getting stuff done was having accountability, I was just wasting my time, pretending I was busy.
Looking back, over the past couple of years, I wasted a lot…a lot of time, a lot of energy and worse still, a lot of money (that one is painful to admit). If I knew then, what I know now, I could have not only had an well-established business by now, but more importantly, I could have helped a lot of people.
Lucky for me (and for my clients), knowing that I’m exactly where I should be (and also realizing that I was exactly where I should be even then), means I can totally and 100% relate to that feeling of frustration that my clients are going through. That knowing that you should be doing so much more, helping people (and be successful at what you’re doing) that seems to get overshadowed by the doubt and fear that lives within yourself.
So yes, the wisest decision I’ve made this year is to invest in myself and my business. To take myself seriously, to get my own accountability and systems in place. Which means, I’m better prepared to help my clients to do the very same thing.
Quite wise indeed!
