What main mental story do you have on repeat when it comes to running your business?

It usually all boils down to some form of  “I’m not smart enough” “I’m not talented enough” I don’t deserve that level of success” >>> a.k.a. “I’M NOT GOOD ENOUGH”

Enough BASED on….??

So friend, the next time you tell yourself you CAN’T or you SHOULD do something – I want you to pause, and figure out – where is this coming from? 

What do you believe about yourself, the world and your business? 

Are these beliefs HELPING or HINDERING you from getting to where you want to go?

Ask a trusted friend or a business mentor if these things hold true about you! We are often the first to see potential and greatness in others and the last to see it in ourselves.

Your brain and subconscious already trusts these people and holds what they say to be worth a lot of importance.

Lean on your community. Make sure you have someone that’s holding you to your POTENTIAL rather than your mental chatter! 

You’ll be amazed at how far and fast you can progress when you have that level of accountability and can borrow their belief in you when your inner critic starts to get loud.

If you need a reminder of the potential that already exists within you today, here it is: 

✨ You are so much more capable than you give yourself credit for

✨ The world and your clients & community NEED you to show up with your gifts

✨ You are irreplaceable – no one can show up and serve the way you do

✨ You are so worthy of achieving every goal and dream you have on your heart

✨ I see the potential in you – even on the days you don’t

✨ You have incredible stories and knowledge to share

✨ You have what it takes to build an incredibly successful business

✨ Your content is valuable, seen and heard 

✨ The work that you do MATTERS. You, MATTER.

✨ The world is a better place for having you in it

✨ You are strong, you are brave, you are courageous, you are worthy

You CAN do things your own way – and if you need a little bit of support from a coach, I’m here for you!

Cheering you on, always,

💕 Manali
