3 Mistakes Business Owners Make

by Chris Atley

Entrepreneurs spend a lot of time focusing on various strategies, thinking this next “one” will be it. By just doing ______, they will fix all of their problems.

This is the farthest thing from the truth. It’s not about adding in one more strategy, it’s about shifting what’s going on in the inside. When you show-up confidently and acting like the expert you are, everything will shift.

It’s about who you are being, not what you are doing. Digging out your deepest fear is the best place to start. It was amazing what came to the surface during my retreat. The women thought they had dealt with old painful wounds, but during our intensive it was brought to their attention that the pain was still there and was affecting their businesses in a really big way.

Start thinking about who you really want to be when you’re out in the world.

How entrepreneurs spend their time is another big one. Most people are signing-up left, right and center for tons of different programs – again seeking an external answer. A lot of the information being shared is relevant and useful, but without shifting what is going on inside, you will not be able to fully implement what you have learned. It just won’t work. Believe me, I’ve been there.

Perfection paralysis is next. Trying to get it “perfect” before getting out there. You will never get it perfect. You will not learn what you need to if you’re afraid of messing-up. Every experience you have shapes who you will be and what you will do in the world. Would you rather help people as you go, and learn what works and doesn’t -or would you rather spend all of your time getting it just right before you even start?

Think of all the people that will miss out on what you can help them with. This of course leads beck to a deeper issue of caring what others think. This must be dug out – meaning addressing the unconscious beliefs you’re not even aware of, that are shaping every single decision you make.

It’s time to address these issues. You will not have the success you want until you do. You will not help people on a larger scale until you do. It’s worth taking a look – albeit a little scary.
