As passionate, motivated, relentless individuals — as entrepreneurs — we’re faced with an entirely different set of day-to-day challenges in addition to the traditional ones. A good example is our fear. Not of spiders or clowns (even though they are scary AF); I’m talking about our fear of potential.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us…” -Marianne Williamson
As suggested, and especially for you, it’s the raw power you possess that keeps you up at night. Your half-tapped natural abilities, your unique approaches, your out-of-the-box ideas, your greatness.
Trapped. Our guest for Episode 34 of the 5 O’Clock Hustle, Omari Harebin (sqspthemes.com), has felt that fear, which, as it often does, manifested itself into a feeling of being trapped. No way out, no way through; just stuck. Though the great thing about feeling trapped is that it’s a self-generated feeling and it can be overcome. Omari did just that and in this episode, he shares his strategy for fighting and beating fear so that you can move past it and pursue your greatness.
Speaking of what keeps you up at night…do you ever lie awake in bed bouncing from great idea to great idea and wishing it was the start of the new day so you could go after it all? As Jeff Foxworthy’s twin business brother would say…Here’s Your Grind Sign. You guessed it! You’re an entrepreneur and it’s your job to be creative non-stop! The creative mind may dream, but it never sleeps… So listen in for some great tactics on how to control and harness that.
Beyond what we cover above, this episode is a true opportunity and we really enjoyed a heartfelt, soulful conversation about the value of a good life and how to achieve it for yourself. My favorite piece personally was the 4 easy ways to Maximize your Hours, placing emphasis on being real with yourself and knowing what you’re going after. Instead of coming up with 5 and 10-year plans, close your eyes and imagine what your perfect, ideal day would consist of. If you’ve been looking for Jack Sparrow’s whacky ass compass to lead you in the right direction, this is the best alternative available.
Turn us on (romantically or not) at the gym, on your drive, while you’re working your butt off, whatever. We do this week in and week out because we love learning with you and we love growing together. And please give us feedback if you like the direction we’re going in or you’d prefer we cover something specific…or if you just want to say hi.
We’re here for you.
