If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably spent WAY too long caught up in the fear of failure. Hands up if you’re guilty! :::raising hand::: Yeah, me too.
Sister, I get it. It can be scary to launch a new business or product, but I’m going to walk you through the super simple strategy to leave fear behind, step into your power, and become the queen you were always made to be.
Are you ready?
Let’s do this….
I know that we women meticulously plan out our non-existent businesses, investigate the competition, plan out our futures, create a business plan, do market research, discuss revenue streams, decide what a product might look like, and who we would like to offer it to….
We dream about what things might look like in the future.
We talk and dream about it so much that eventually we end up stuck and overwhelmed, because we have over-thought it and never acted.
If we end up launching, we usually play it small and “test the waters,” never truly going ALL IN. This inevitably leads to less than ideal results and confirms our fears that “we aren’t good enough”, “our business isn’t viable”, etc.
Sound familiar? I’ve said it many times before...you are not alone!
Fear and uncertainty hold us back - ALL THE TIME. It’s a part of the package. And, we need to learn to deal with it, manage it, and be committed to working through it.
It’s sooooo important to become comfortable with being where you are: the beginning.
And, there’s no shame in starting out! That’s one of the great lies of the fear of failure...that everyone else is farther along. Well, guess what sweetie?! EVERYONE else also had to start at the beginning, too.
Let me tell you a secret: You will never truly be ready!
So, embrace the ride, accept where you are, and let’s move into action to Get. Things. Done!
I know a thing or two about jumping into action before I was ready...
I’ll stop there for now with the examples, but like I said, I know a thing or two about going all-in and not feeling ready.
I was regularly asked how I built my businesses, how I created the lifestyle I enjoyed, and so much more.
It was time to switch from being a one woman show in my coaching business, chasing my dream, but never being able to fully step into it. I had failed to set up systems, automation, delegation, and all the things I now talk about regularly.
When I finally took advantage of all these things and got over my fear of failure, I smoothly stepped into where I am today!
I started at 0, ladies...LITERALLY at 0 many times over. I set aside the life coaching business I had built from scratch to pursue a greater mission and vision on my heart. And, it was scary and full of really busy days, but was also by far the best thing I have ever done for my life and business.
I made a decision to be all in, and embrace being a beginner again. I was ok with starting over, with no followers, no email list, no income. Just me, hustling hard, and putting myself out there.
Don’t get me wrong - I was ok with it...but it wasn’t easy.
So, how did I make this massive shift in my business, go all in with NOTHING, and overcome my fear of failure with a brand new business launch?
Two things: Mind and Action.
Here is the simple break down.
Sister, I really know how appealing it is to dream and plan and envision and imagine, yada-yada-yada. I do. BUT, dreaming doesn’t pay the bills.
Tough love, babe. Planning and vision are important, absolutely, but they are not the same as taking action to actually DO THE WORK.
It’s easy to dream, envision, plan, and imagine. But, it takes actual grit and work to create, plan, strategize, and do.all.the.things.
While planning is good, too much planning simple leads to an overwhelmed head and a stressed out heart. Decide right now that you are only going to plan for a purpose, and then you are going to GET TO WORK.
This right here, ladies, is the meat and potatoes. If you are serious about overcoming the fear of failure, TAKE NOTE.
Once you have your dreams and vision and plans outlined, now it is time to really dig in and put together a workable action plan for the next 60 days.
Yes, workable action plan. Get serious about what you can do NOW and then get to it.
Is your dream worth it to you? Are you worth your own best efforts?
You are the only one who gets to make that decision. So, what do you say?
What should your 60 day plan include?
The best companies always start out with their MVP, or Minimum Viable Product. This means that you really just need your 1.0 launch version to get going. You can always add more, make it better, and increase the value over time. But, START!
Create your offer, map out a launch, and get moving!
The world needs your offer. Get out there and go all in.
I promise, your fear of failure might still try to linger around, but you will defeat it with action! This will be scary as all heck - yes.
But, as soon as you whittle it down to this simple process and start rolling, you will begin seeing results and your confidence will grow.
Be prepared. There will be times where you put out a webinar and no one shows up. That’s okay!
You did your part. KEEP GOING!!!
There will be times you create an epic freebie that no one downloads. No problem! Learn from the experience, adjust, and try again!
If you have done your market research and know your product and business are viable, commit yourself to continuing to show up daily. Position yourself as an expert in your field, and DON’T STOP.
But, did I need to find a ton of people? NO! Because of the way I planned my launch, it only took 10 women purchasing a $1000/month product for 5 months. 10 x $1000 x 5 = $50,000.
Seriously, that’s my kind of math!
Plan your offer and the price point you will be selling it. Map out how many people you need to sell to, and commit to making it happen!
