You know that time when it’s 11am on a Monday morning and your mind is screaming “we never should have left bed this morning?” You know that time, everything should be okay with you, the weather is finally warming up, you’ve been getting good feedback on your business, but then suddenly bam – you’re stuck in a rut.
We’ve all been there. It’s when you don’t quite feel like making the big things happen, because you aren’t quite sure you believe they really can happen. It’s that milli-second between, ‘Yes, I know what I’m doing with my life and my business’ and ‘No, I have no idea what’s happening and why is that on fire?’
If you’re experiencing this, you’re probably suffering from a dose of self-doubt mixed with a dash of imposter syndrome and lemon for a hint of freshness, because you know, every time this happens it feels like it’s the first time all over again.
These things can be huge energy drainers as they leave you lost and unsure as to what to work on now and inspiration less on what to work on next in order to make your big thing come to life.
Working on a business model sounds meh, working on your branding sounds too stressful and the thought of even opening your wannabe chart of forecasts for the next few months makes you want to puke.
What do you do in these situations kids? What is the cure?
Well, first things first is to realise that you aren’t on your own.
I can’t speak for everybody out there trying to “make things happen,” but I can speak for me and I know the down times can be hard, but that everybody experiences them. From world class rock stars to that teacher from grade 1 who you thought was amazing, everyone has felt out of flow.
So now that we’ve got the first things out of the way, what about the second and the third?
Well this time that’s gonna be a group effort. We aren’t sure, (hey the rut has got us too) so we want to hear from you.
