Why Should We?

WHY should we be doing something that goes against our natural way of doing things? Why not live our life and run our business the way we want too?
We are always being told, “You should being doing it this way!”, or “You should be doing it that way!”. But WHY should we being doing something that goes against our natural way of doing things? Why not live our life and run our business the way we want too? Why not be different? Why not be ourselves?
WHY? – Because;
1) It’s scary and risky to do something different from the norm.
2) We don’t always know ourselves well enough to know “our way”.
3) It’s hard to trust and have confidence in what you don’t fully know.
4) It’s easier to shape ourselves into a known mold rather than do the personal, introspective work necessary to know who we are.
So, what’s the answer? Well its a choice, either you conform to their way or you do the work necessary to find your answers and “your way”.
Ask yourself, do I want to get lost in the crowd or do I want to stand out for all to see?
Yes, the spotlight can be scary but think of how much more recognition there is, think about how much more possibility there is. Above all, think of how much more comfortable it will be to operate from a position of you rather than a false, make believe you.
Also, it may not be as hard as you might think to get there! And, you may like it ever so much more!
Consider the benefits of doing things “your way”;
-it’s easier to be yourself because you don’t have to learn another way of being
-you are more comfortable in your own skin
-your way is unique to anyone else so its stands out in a crowd
-you can build from an established base to be even better
-you will be more trusted by others when you are real
-you will have more excitement for what you do
Wouldn’t you rather be successful while having an easier route to travel and by gaining the recognition you deserve?
I am just saying, consider the possibilites…..
