My right index finger hovers over the ‘enter’ key for what seems like an eternity.
My email was complete but two inches down with my finger and it would mean no turning back.
I would set in motion something that seemed scary, an undefined path leading to the unknown.
I was feeling vulnerable and the critical voices in my head were getting louder.
You know the ones.
“Who am I to think I can do this?”
“What will people say?”
“What if I fail?”
Looking back it seems silly that the email I was about to send was announcing my first coaching workshop. But I was scared. I mean really scared, the kind that brings out the butterflies.
I was out of my comfort zone and felt like I was putting myself WAY out there.
Today coaching is where I find my comfort, yet also a place where I continue to stretch and challenge myself. Building my business has been one of the most challenging and fun things I’ve ever done.
Working with the women I coach gives me joy. To see the light in them shine bright when they let down their guard and open up to the possibilities that lie within themselves is amazing.
What light are you hiding that needs to be shown to the world?
Perhaps pages of a novel hidden in a drawer? An idea for a cookbook just waiting to be written? Beautiful art? A new idea for a business?
What are you waiting to hit the ‘enter’ key on?
What are you missing out on by not moving your finger two inches?
Shine your light bright. Move that finger.
