Just Because You Can, Doesn't Always Mean You Should
I have spent the last few years running a business that supports people getting set up online. I really enjoyed doing it and had some success, but I didn’t love it. I had originally started an online business to promote my life coaching and somehow ended up showing people how to get set up online.
Have you inadvertently followed a path that you didn’t consciously choose and now you are wondering how you ended up there? It’s a great place to be if you love it, but if you feel like it isn’t exactly what you should be doing then it might be time to reevaluate.
It is also important to listen to yourself and not all the others around you. Everyone thought I should stay doing what I was doing because I was having success at it and making money. I kept stopping and starting, which was adversely impacting my business even more.
I finally said enough was enough and that I was going to pursue what I am really passionate about – helping people create a life they love.
Am I scared? A little petrified actually. It is easier with teaching and training to hide behind the content. With coaching we are bare for all to see.
Spend a couple of minutes reflecting on if you are doing what you love to do or if you have somehow, accidentally almost, ended up doing something that you like, but maybe not love.
Remember – just because you can do it, does necessarily mean you should.
