Business is well, business. While it can be creative, exciting, and fun- it can also be cut-throat. You have to be tough to survive, and even tougher to thrive. In my time as an entrepreneur I’ve had to grow up, put on my big girl panties, and get fierce. I had to build up my ability to deal with difficult situations and ask for what I want.
My story is not unique. Every week in my coaching I hear of women, just like me, that have difficulty standing up for themselves and feeling in control during conflict. Running your own business requires cajones. You have to be willing to act like a “man” to gain respect. Just think of Mr. Pilates himself. Would be wishy washy with his clients? Joe wouldn’t so why should you? Watch this little video about how I got my Business Balls, and how you can find yours too!
Now, make sure you take these two simple steps to get powerful in your business:
- Make a list of 3 situations that you need to be stronger with your business
- Then under each, list 3 small exercises you can do to help you get gutsy
Next, follow through with your steps and remember what Joe said- “Patience and persistence are vital qualities in the ultimate successful accomplishment of any worthwhile endeavor.” Just like your one hundred….a little workout won’t kill you and you’ll be happy you showed up!
Got your balls (or ovaries if you please)??? If not, lemme show you how to get some!
