The One Thing

The one thing I want every struggling business owner to know - you are enough

I’m speaking to you.

The lost and the hopeless.

The scared and the frightened.

The people who have pursued their dream of starting a business, because not pursuing it was crushing their soul a little bit more each day. You started with such a fire in your belly, only now you feel as though your business is consuming you.

You who wake at 4 in the morning because even in your dreams your fears are chasing you.

“What should I do?”

“Where can I get more clients, more money”

“I’m working so hard and don’t know how I can do more.”

“Should I go and get a ‘real’ job?”

You, who are working every hour you can to serve the people you want to serve but who just can’t see the way forward.

You, who are so close to giving up.

I know you. I see you. You are not alone.

You are so scared of the “what ifs”, especially the “what if I fail?” that you don’t know how to take the next step forward.

And every day it gets a little bit harder to put on your game face, a little bit harder to smile.

What I want you to know… what I need you to know, is this…

You. Are. Enough.

 

 

Every single day, you are enough. You think you are lost, but you’re not, you just can’t see your destination yet.

You think you’re alone, but you’re not, there are others out there just as scared as you if only you could acknowledge that to each other.

You think that failing means the end when really it could just be the new beginning.

You were brave to start your own business. You are still brave because even in the face of adversity you continue to move forward, no matter how small those movements may seem.

You will get to exactly where you need to be, even if you don’t know yet where that may be.

Hold on. You are enough.
