If you truly believed that you had everything you needed what would you do right now? Would you start a new project or launch a new programme, would you package your offering and present it to your audience?

What would you change if you truly believed you had all that you needed?Since the beginning of the year, I’ve been immersing myself in personal growth and the biggest realisation is that I must believe that anything is possible but also trust that it is possible.

Then I Googled (well it is the default for us all let’s face it) the opposite of fear. Again, and again the word trust came up, which makes perfect sense to me.

Fear is what stops you believing that you have everything that you need and that anything is possible. Holding you safe and comfortable. Yet I also know that even staying ‘comfortable’ or IN a place of comfort takes dedication. Energy to stay right where you are that could be used to move forward and towards your greatest desires.

Many years ago, before husband and children, I found myself in Queenstown in New Zealand, where you can bungee jump off the historic Kawarau Bridge. A fellow traveller and I hired scooters and went to watch, we watched for hours and the whole time my mind was full of excuses NOT to do it.

On that day my fear won and as I write this, I wish I had taken the leap – quite literally. Never mind, I have many more jumps to make and fear will NOT win because I'm learning to trust.

So what do I mean by trust?

As a noun “trust” means“ a firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something.” Imagine now trusting or holding a firm belief in your own ability or strength.

Firm belief, a knowing that anything is possible, and you CAN succeed in fulfilling ALL your dreams. How awesome is that? You already have and are all that you need to be and the only thing stopping you is fear.

Or rather and because I'm NOW an overflowing glass type of gal, TRUST is what WILL make it happen.

How do you move past the fear and learn to trust?

Sadly, actually NO not sadly. Your journey should be one that is experienced and therefore I’m not sorry there isn’t an easy route. There is ONLY your route or path and it requires making personal growth a priority.

I’ve said it before and I’m going to say it again. Personal growth or self-development, call it what you like, is how you will move your business forward and turn your dreams into reality far quicker. Let me explain.

You can do all the training and learning in the world BUT if you don’t change your mindset fear will still prevent you from taking the action. Or you’ll take the action but without the belief, which is pretty much the same as not taking the action.

Mindset is key

Essential in fact and I know this from experience. I was busy, really busy but not focusing on the right activity – allowing fear to stop me from moving outside of my comfort zone and into the uncomfortable which is where the magic happens. It took me years to realise there was a missing piece to the puzzle and I don’t want that for you.

What if I told you that YOUR success is closer than you think and easier to achieve than you ever imagined possible. That you don’t have to work yourself into the ground to keep your head above water and that growing your business is possible while working FEWER hours.
