There once was a time when I couldn’t even IMAGINE telling people what I wanted to create. It sounded silly to me.
“I want to create a website and a coaching business that helps people have cool, fun, adventurous lives”.
Oh god, I couldn’t even utter the words. Because it felt SO far away. And I had no idea how I was going to do it (and also no confidence that I would even be able to make it happen if I tried).
And that was EXACTLY my problem. I was SO stuck in the HOW, that I never really let myself get excited about the WHAT.
You know what it’s like… you get all excited about a big idea, but then when it comes to implement, it starts to feel overwhelming, and scary, and too big to take on. It’d be easier to just stay put and go on living as you are… your current life isn’t really that bad…
But we all know that’s bullshit. We all know that the longer you put it off, the harder and harder it will become, but the more and more you will want it.
No point in delaying the inevitable right?
The ONE thing you can be doing right now to get started with next big adventure is to start talking about it.
Make it real. Tell everyone you know. Get excited.
Talking about what you want does two things:
1. It actually makes it feel real, and all of a sudden you find yourself starting to get excited about it (duh), and also starting to plan it. Little details pop into mind. The HOW starts to unfold and reveal itself. The world starts to point you in the direction you want to go.
2. It holds you accountable. There’s nothing like telling all your Facebook friends about this big life-switch you’re making to hold you to it. People will want to support and congratulate you, and you’ll have everyone you know backing you up.
I know it feels hard and scary and SO far away. But I PROMISE you, when you start talking about what you want, just that one simple step makes it so much more real.
I challenge you to go out this week and tell 10 people about the big thing you want to do. And I’d love to hear in the comments below what comes up for you when you think about telling people about it. Fear? Excitement? Uncertainty? Spill it in the comments below.
