“It’s not working!”
I hear this all the time.
When I work with clients I find that their “ it’s not working” beliefs stem from one of the reasons below…
1. The Staller
I had a client the other day who said “Erin I think I have to go back to my market research. I think something is missing. Before I move on to creating my framework.”
Now, I’m a seasoned enough coach to spot when someone wants to go back to the beginning in order to put off the scary work they are headed into doing.
Oftentimes you feel like something isn’t working because you’re using that to avoid the work that you are about to step into doing.
2. The Perfectionist
I have another client who loves everything to be perfect.
And I know perfectionism all too well! The minute I was able to look at my business as an experiment instead of reaching for perfection, the more progress I was able to make.
Oftentimes in your business, you feel like something isn’t working because you think it should be perfect in order to work, but that ain’t it kid. That ain’t it!
Do you expect your students to be perfect in dance class? (If you do, you’re not my kind of dance teacher). Of course not! You expect them to put in effort, make mistakes, get up and try again! So why don’t you give yourself the same grace?
3. The All at Once Builder
I have had clients who wanted to build out multiple online dance businesses at one time. In the early stages of my business I allowed this, but now that is a NO go.
If you feel like your online dance business isn’t working it may have something to do with the fact that you are unsure how to build one business well, and building multiple businesses without knowing how to do it well can be a recipe for “it isn’t working.”
So my friend, it’s not that your business isn’t working, it’s the fact that you may be self sabotaging...
In episode #145 of the Dance Boss Podcast, I dive further into these “it’s not working,” mindsets and give you some small business tips to get through the self sabotage.
