The pandemic is in full swing and I’m still in the process of building a sustainable business in my chosen field.
People are my chosen field. To support and serve people in as powerful a way as I know how. To equip them to solve the biggest problems and challenges that face humanity. They can do the things I can’t. I can do the things they can’t. Together we are more than the sum of our parts.
Since Covid-19 began I’ve found myself pulling back more and more from initiating conversations. Conversations are my bread and butter. Lately, I don’t want to be a burden on people. Who am I to interrupt them in their busy lives?
I set the bar high for my business and for the people I will agree to work with. However, part of growing is understanding the consequences of that high bar. I find myself asking, ‘Why set the bar so high? Would I have an easier life if I set lower standards?’
The answer is no!
Setting the bar high is the only way to support myself and others. For my high-performing client, I challenge them to achieve their impossible. For me, in order to give those aspirations life, I need to be at the absolute top of my game, to lean into my edge. If I succumb to the doubts feeding my mind, then how can I help people rise above theirs?
Every experience in life is a learning experience. I’m currently pondering on the purpose of the pandemic for me. The irony is, if I wait around to figure it out, I miss the point of the living experience.
