050: How To Stop Playing Small in Your Business

As business owners, it’s so easy to get all caught up on the little things. And before you know it, the small things have us spinning in circles trying to figure it all out. But if you want to grow your business and show up big every day, you can’t let that happen.

Trust me, I know that it can be frustrating when you see other practitioners that are gliding effortlessly to success. I’ve seen it too. You’re working hard every day, you feel like you’re doing all the right things, and believe that things are going pretty well. But then you start comparing yourself to others who are having more success than you and you end up being in your own head all the time. Well, my friend, that voice in your head can be your biggest enemy sometimes, so don’t listen to it!

If you want something different for your business and are ready to make some changes, the answer might be simpler than you think–and it might have more to do with your mindset than anything else. In today’s episode, I want to talk to you about how to show up in your business, stop playing small, stop comparing yourself to others, and start moving forward on a path for success on YOUR terms.
