Have you ever had shiny ball syndrome?
Why are you trying to seek the next shiny ball? The next thing that you want to improve on?
Why aren't you looking at that thing that you're already good at? And by getting tunnel vision, figuring out how to make it better? Figuring out how to generate income and profit from it.
You are already good at that thing that you're already good at.
Why are you chasing that next shiny ball?
Stop being a shiny ball chaser. Find that thing that you are already good at and hone in on it, serve, give... help others.
Do you know the number one thing holding most people back from following their dreams? From following that thing that fills them up inside?
If you are worrying about what other people are worrying about or being judged.
Watching other people wandering and worrying what other people think. You cannot control what other people think.
Let's talk about commitment. Are you committed to moving forward to doing things? So often I hear people say, Hey, I would love to have a business like yours. If I could achieve success, I would love it. If I could have influence to help people solve their problems, I would love it. If people would decide to come to my events, I would love it.
But what you'll find is most of the time people make statements like that, but they don't follow through. They don't take the actions needed to achieve their goals. 99% of people will not do what it takes. And It's not an easy road.

When you step outside your comfort zone, that is when great things happen. It's when you get uncomfortable when you take steps in ways that you know you need to do. It's usually the hardest thing to do that will make changes in your life.

Business, like life can be a rollercoaster. An emotional rollercoaster.
It is super important to understand these different emotional cycles. It means it's easier to pull yourself out of a negative emotional place and back on track. It makes it easier to redirect yourself back to a positive emotional place.
Because when you know, and you're more self aware, you have better control over what it is that you do.
Let's have a look at these emotional cycles of being an entrepreneur.

Every single person out there is not born with confidence. Confidence is something that you develop over time. It is something that grows with time.
Picture an athlete. When they first start running, do you think they have the strength and the stamina to run long distances? What about a weight trainer? Do you think that they start out being able to lift 100 kilos? They start on the lower side and do a little bit at a time and they build that muscle.
