How SELF DOUBT Cost Me…
Shannon here with some words of wisdom about mastering your inner game.
Have you noticed how time flies and what a difference a few years makes? (Thank Goddess!)
I’m saying that because I recently took a turn down Memory Lane, back to a networking event I attended years ago.
And I was shocked to realize that at the time, I’d actually landed on my niche! Yes, the same one Mark and I are ROCKING today — helping SPEAKERS get more Speaking Gigs.
Can you believe it? I had that hot number in my hands. But guess what? I just let it go. I’m not kidding. I dabbled with it and then DROPPED that gold mine like a hot potato.
Why? Because I let SELF DOUBT get the best of me. I bought into my own limiting beliefs and stories of lack instead of possibility. And as a result I wasted precious time and money wandering around “looking for my niche.”
When I already landed on it!
But that’s nothing, because here’s the REALLY embarrassing part: I had to go to hell and back — I mean total life upheaval and breakdown, losing my house and filing for bankruptcy before I “woke up” to my calling and claimed my purpose.
Isn’t it ironic? I held the answer to my prayers in the palm of my hand, but I didn’t grab it and run with it.
And it took me 6 long years to get back to it. Ergh… PAIN-FUL!
It’s true, your niche is a bitch.
But YOU don’t HAVE to wait for a 2 x 4 to hit you in the head to land on yours.
Trust me… been there, done that! I wouldn’t recommend it.
And that’s why Mark and I are so passionate about helping SPEAKERS like you find your Tribe and your calling — so you don’t waste precious time and energy spinning your wheels like I did.
