Question: What’s the biggest pitfall to making more money?
Answer: Thinking you have to have it all figured out first.
That’s exactly what slows us down, or keeps us stuck
After 40 years of working with women I’ve found that the ones who had the most trouble reaching their goals were the ones who kept trying to figure out exactly what they needed to do to get there.
If they couldn’t figure it out, they tended to lower their sights.
That’s not the way it works at all…at least not for the thousands of successful women I’ve interviewed. Instead, what these women did was:
1. Set a goal,
2. Commit to reach it (without knowing how),
3. Take advantage of unexpected opportunities (disguised as coincidences).
That’s the real secret to success.
It’s not about trying to figure out how, but being willing to let go of control and do what comes next.
Especially if it’s something you’re scared to do.
