Have you ever felt a calling that you were meant to do something bigger than yourself?
Your life is not that bad but deep down, in your soul, something is missing. You have this internal energy that yearns to push you out of your boundaries and change your daily routine. It scares you but you also feel excited to do something meaningful in your life.
Because you spend a lot of time at work, you wish you could combine your passion with your professional life.
You now have several doors in front of you:
- Adapt your current work around your passion
- Follow your passion as a hobby or side project
- Create your own business
- Add here your own ideas
Which door will you open?
It is time to get unstuck
If one business idea keeps coming back and decides to stay in the back of your mind, the longer you wait before doing something about it, the longer it could drain your thoughts. The trouble is that you start imagining yourself in a more exciting life if you were to create that business and your days become more frustrating as the time goes by.
Be true to yourself
If you have been telling people that you were working on a new business concept for more than a year but you know that everything is still in your mind, it is more than time to see why nothing concrete has happened yet.
- Have you shared your idea with anybody to get feedback?
- Are you solving a problem?
- Are you willing to execute the idea?
- Are you dreaming about this business to escape your current situation?
- Do you know the first steps to take in order to move forward?
- Are you prepared to manage your own business with the up and down times that come with it?
- What are you afraid of?
Leaving the doors closed is an option
Sometimes people realize that dreaming of having their own company is a way to escape their current life, but don’t feel ready or the need to make it happen.
There is nothing wrong with abandoning a business idea if you are not aligned with it. The most important part is to let it go so that you can move forward with your life and change it in a different way.
Freeing your mind is a success whatever decision you make. New doors will continue to appear because you will have better clarity about yourself and about what you really want to do.
If your idea did not feel right, you still know that you want to improve your current situation. Keep the momentum and think about your next step.
It is time to be in charge of your own becoming. Don’t run away from a professional situation without understanding why and for what you are looking.
Personal and professional lives impact each other. Take a deep breath and step back to analyze where your need for a change comes from.
- What do you currently dislike doing?
- What would make you happy?
- Do you spend enough time on activities you love?
- Is there a simple thing that you could change now?
It is never too late to start improving your life and it is easier to begin with small and simple steps. Each time you move forward, acknowledge it and enjoy the progress you make.
Be in control of your decision and there won’t be any wrong choice
Now, if you feel that the calling for starting a new business is too strong and you can’t let it go because you know that you will regret it in the future if you don’t do anything, it is time to execute your idea.
How? Let’s start the conversation and get you unstuck.
Until the next time, don’t be afraid of the door you just opened. Follow your gut; it knows you well and is usually right. The challenge comes from the outside world as it can influence your thoughts. You will have to decide what is right for you. Keep your authenticity and your values; having a good foundation is an excellent start for your journey.
