The start of something new always seems to bring a natural resistance.
By fighting off the “dream demons” that tend to impede our ability to press forward in business and life — we empower ourselves.
On my own journey, at the start of new things I’ve incorporated a few key practices that have halted the enemies of my dreams right at the threshold…I have NO desire for them to get a foothold in my heart or mind.
Here are three practices for you to wield in your own life…
1. Take out the trash regularly — our minds have a way of getting cluttered quite easily when we are starting something new, simply take the messages, thoughts and ideas that are working against you and discard them; you can physically model this by jotting down your negative thoughts on paper as they come and then simply trashing them.
2. Adjust your sightline — It’s so very easy to be overwhelmed emotionally and mentally encumbered with all that you do not have, I encourage you to change your line of sight and to gaze upon what you DO have, as these are the things that will aid you in moving forward.
3. Be an intuitive leader — start-ups (whether a business or passion project) often render us a staff of one, wearing many hats; be sure to stay busy in the things that matter the most and if you’re wondering what to do next, think about what you truly desire and allow that to be your guide…trust your ability to lead yourself in this.
