I have the privilege and the honor to know some amazing women and I want to create a community for women who want to be amazing in the world.

How To Clarify Your Vision

How To Clarify Your Vision

ūüĒģLet's talk about VISION. ūüĒģ Ever wondered why some businesses soar while others stumble? It all boils down to having a clear vision. As a fellow believer in the power of dreams and determination, I think you'll appreciate this: 1. Higher Failure Rate: Picture a ship without a map or a compass. That's what a business without a vision is like. They struggle to define their long-term goals, leading to a higher chance of failure. 2. Lack of Direction: Imagine driving without a destination in mind. Businesses without vision face the same dilemma. Priorities become blurred, decisions get tangled, and resources go to waste. 3. Difficulty in Attracting Investors: Investors seek clarity and direction. A business without a vision often finds it challenging to attract the financial support it needs to grow. 4. Employee Disengagement: Just like you, Sarah, employees thrive when they know where they're headed. A visionless business can see morale and engagement take a nosedive. So, here's the deal: I'm The Confidence Coach, and I help incredible women build unshakable confidence and create a clear path to success. Let's turn your dreams into a strategic plan. ūü홂ú® Ready to discover the power of YOUR vision? Book a FREE Setbacks to Success Intensive call with me now: defeatfailure.com

Are You Ready To Do What Scares You-Pt 2
Sep 09, 202114:30
Are you ready for a challenge that scares you?

Are you ready for a challenge that scares you?

Doing what challenges you the most to stay motivated may feel a little odd at first. One of the ways that this motivates you is by giving you a sense of accomplishment. There are plenty of good reasons that we give ourselves for not getting these things done. It makes complete sense in the moment to put it off, not make it a priority, and keep putting those things that challenge us off to another day.

So, we are going to go over some tools on how to get started taking on the things that challenge us so you can start to allow the challenges to excite you.  You must do those things that challenge you the most first.  The fear is what has been stopping you, but on the other hand, maybe you stopped challenging yourself at all. Are you pushing yourself? Do you have bigger goals? If you don't that's a different thing.  If you do and you know that you have been making excuses for not getting them done.  You must make them a priority.
