I love this quote from Eleanor Roosevelt: "Do one thing every day that scares you."
Over the years that I’ve been coaching clients in their business, I’ve noticed that each week has a theme.
I first wrote about this in my blog in 2014 when I noticed that so many fabulous entrepreneurs were in hiding and being invisible.
At the time, I had a client in South Africa who moved to the mountains where they have intermittent internet. She was building an internet business, and chose to move to an area where she was constantly frustrated with the poor internet service and reception.
She said she wanted to create a successful business and yet her actions were to stay invisible.
I also had another client in Singapore who refused to post his picture anywhere on social media. He was a service based entrepreneur searching to connect with people and yet wanted to stay invisible.
With these two examples of my clients doing everything possible to be invisible, I turned my attention to myself and I noticed that I too, was hiding and being invisible.
I decided way back in 2014 that I needed to get out and be more visible and use videos to market myself. Well, I’m happy to share with you that I am now sharing videos weekly and really love doing them each week.
Of course, I was scared when I first started doing them. I had all the same voices in my head that my clients do. I decided to take action, focus on what I want and reach out to connect with people who want to make a difference in the world.
I can’t live my purpose if I’m invisible and neither can you.
Here is my question to you:
Are you hiding in your business? What are you stopping yourself from doing?
If you're working on something and waiting for it to be absolutely perfect before you launch it, you're stopping yourself from greatness. How do I know this? Oh, because I spent years hiding.
You're not alone. I know other entrepreneurs who are hiding too. My goal is to get you out of being invisible.
Easier said than done right? Here are some tips to help you get out of being invisible:
Decide what you want to create
Get out of your comfort zone
Change your routine
Get the task done that you're dreading first
Hire an expert to help you
Of course, make sure you do something every day that scares you.
This is my advice for moving from Invisible to Invincible in your business.
Remember that Thomas Edison didn't create the incandescent light bulb until he had failed 10,000 times. Good news, with all the resources available to you today, you'll be less likely to fail 10,000 times.
Stop playing small and invisible. Do one thing that scares you today. Get out there!
