A few years back, while going through a professional transition, I was asked to create a Life Plan, which forced me to look at my Envisioned Future in a whole new way. At first I thought, “This is a total waste of time.” But none-the-less, I went through the process. As I documented my vision, I also noted what was holding me back, and I think those things are common for women.
The things holding me back were mostly interior and about my fears and insecurities instead of a physical reality. In other words, the obstacles blocking my pathway were not tree trunks and boulders, but instead boogey men. Once I realized this truth, I was able to plan to refuse for those feelings to ever hold me back again.
It felt amazing to label and categorize the things that were holding me back, and I want to share them because they ring true with the women in my life, and I think we all might be holding ourselves back for reasons that we can overcome.
As I documented my envisioned future, I made note of what I believe are the top five things that hold most women back:
I am currently working on a book and a series of workshops to help women overcome the things holding us back in life. All my curriculum and lessons are designed to guide you through overcoming these common barriers and much, much more. I’ll walk you and a group of other like-minded women through the process of creating a plan that moves you from where you are to where you want to be.
Truth is, you can start wherever you are in your life RIGHT NOW. No more waiting until the kids are older, waiting until you have more money, waiting until you pay off credit cards, doctor bills and student loans, waiting and waiting. You don’t need to be perfect — You just need to start.
I’ll show you how to start right where you are and use what you have to grow. If that sounds great to you, click here sign up to receive more information about the book and upcoming growth workshops.
Cheers to you and your future self!
