You have sought different solutions, programs, coaches, and trainings but you’re still stuck. You know you are a powerful coach yet your gifts are not being shared with the world in the way that you desire. You crave working with high-vibe clients, creating impact and influence, and seeing your clients soar into the stratosphere through your work together. Yet, it’s not happening.

You have invested consistently in your business and yourself to break through to the next level. You have the credit card debt to show for it but not the success.

The real cost of being stuck is not about all the time, money, and energy you’ve invested in your business, it’s the impact of not progressing on your sense of self that is wreaking havoc on you. You are losing your faith and belief in yourself. Doubt becomes second nature. Discouragement comes next. Before you know it, depression creeps in, followed closely by self-loathing. Why can’t I seem to figure this out? There must be something fundamentally wrong with me. I’m tired of the struggle. Maybe I should just give up and get a job.

This is the final nail in the coffin. You’re not sure you have what it takes and abandoning your dream becomes a viable option. The issue is you know it will kill your spirit. You know you are meant to do this work, that your entrepreneurial make-up will not settle into working for someone else. It will only increase the self-loathing and depression.

So the cost is not only will you continue not earning in your business, you’ll give it up. When you do that, the cost to your mental and physical health is beyond any financial figure. It is costing you your life – the life you are meant to live – thriving, excelling, contributing greatly, creating a legacy. That is the hardest pill to swallow – to know your gifts and talents won’t be used to their greatest capacity and a little piece of your soul dies with it.

What is the price of your soul? Of living the life you are meant to live? That is the true cost of staying stuck. 

How do I know? I’ve been there. I had invested again and again without seeing the results I desired. I went into self-doubt, despair, self-loathing, even entertained suicidal thoughts. 

It wasn’t about the money I had invested and the money I wasn’t making, it was about the gifts I wasn’t using and sharing, the life I wasn’t living. That was the true cost of being stuck for far too long. And now I look back and see it didn’t have to be that way and it certainly didn’t have to last that long. 

What changed? I stopped placing the power to change my life and business in some program, some coach, some tool I didn’t have and I decided I had everything I needed to be successful and to serve my clients powerfully. 

I made a decision to no longer let my gifts be unexpressed. I refused to abandon myself and my dream even for a second. I took a stand for myself, my business, and the work I am here to do. 

I decided to fear less and love more. I saw myself as the expert I had been seeking all along who had the perfect solution to grow my business well and profitably. I was vigilant with my thoughts and actions. I took full responsibility for my own well-being – mental, physical, spiritual, and financial. And I refused to entertain any thoughts of failure or misfortune or doubt. I proclaimed daily – This is my life and I will live it as I choose, no matter what. 

It requires great sacrifice, great commitment, and an even greater faith. 

And, of course, it is worth it. Your life is worth it. Your dream is worth it. You are worth it. 

Staying stuck is costing you your life. It’s time to reclaim your power, your truth, and your life.
