Pushing Ourselves To Succeed

You know that feeling where you’re so overwhelmed you just feel like you are on the verge of burnout. But at the same time you look at your business and you feel you’re not willing to compromise on anything.
You have great projects on the go, there’s a real buzz about your services and you’re getting loads of new enquiries each month. It feels so energising.
But at the same time, life is becoming one big season of ‘pushing through’ and you’re tired. Not just sleepy but deep down tired in your bones, and you can only medicate with coffee and sugar for so long before you feel like you’re slightly unravelling at the seams.
As high achievers we have always associated success with hard work – with blood, sweat and lots of tears. We bring that expectation to our businesses as well.
So often, when you’re in a season where you feel exhausted and overworked, there’s a small voice inside that is telling you it’s not ok. But that doesn’t fit with the things you want to achieve in your business, so instead of listening to it saying, ‘I can’t keep this up’, or ‘this isn’t what I want to do today’, we drown it out and push through.
So many of us high achievers have got through our biggest challenges in life by throwing ourselves out of the plane even when we weren’t ready.
And sometimes it ends up ok, and sometimes it’s a disaster.
In this episode of the Seven Figure Consultant Podcast I am talking about pushing ourselves to succeed and how you can grow your business in a way that works for you.
I talk about:
● Managing your energy as you build your business
● How your ambition can make a real impact in the world
● When your business demands more from you than you have to give
● What happens when your inner voice is tired of being ignored
● Understanding who you really are as a person
And let me know, do you feel you have to force yourself to take the next steps to grow your business?
Free Report – The Six Elements of a Seven Figure Consulting Business
I’ve created a free PDF report called The Six Elements of a Seven Figure Business. It’s my most popular free resource and in it I outline the 6 areas of unscaled businesses that need to change in order to move past being ‘booked up and burned out’ and shifting into that higher gear that gets you cruising again.
It’s the framework that helps consultant women like you find their feet and get back to leading the business, rather than being buried in client work and back-end business operations.
Thanks for reading! I’d love to hear your feedback and future topics you’d like me to feature.
