Guess what the biggest roadblock is to your success? Those devilish how-tos. You know, thinking you have to have it all figured before you begin. Because that’s exactly what slows you down, or keeps you stuck
Those who have the most trouble thinking bigger are the ones who have to know exactly how they’re going do it. And if they can’t figure it out, they lower their sights.
I was in this category most of my life…until I interviewed six-figure women.
I learned from them a three-step plan.
- Set a goal.
- Commit to reach it (without knowing exactly how).
- And grab hold of any unexpected opportunities that fall in your lap.
The second step is where the power is. Commitment, like a magnet, attracts coincidences. I always say, once you commit to a goal, if you’re not experiencing coincidences, go back to the drawing board. You’re obviously not totally committed.
That’s the way it happened for me. In 2008, I decided to earn $125,000. When I told my now ex-husband, he burst out laughing. I did too. It sounded ridiculous coming from a chronic underearner.
I had no idea how I was going to do it. But as I learned from the women I was interviewing, I didn’t need to have a full blown plan in place.
I just needed to take advantage of synchronicities. Of course, coincidences always lay just outside our comfort zone.
Here is the real secret to success: let go of control and do what comes next, especially if you’re scared to death to do it.
