Putting yourself out there is:
No. Small. Thing.
The sheer magnitude of the inner and outer work required is enough to daunt even the bravest and most well-equipped among us.
There are so many things to consider when launching your business. What does your website need to look like? What do you write on each webpage? What platform should you use? How do you figure out all the technical pieces? How do you make sure it looks professional? Will it resonate with and attract the right people?
Then, predictably, your 'stuff' comes up.
You get stuck.
And a few more calendar pages flip by, with little to show for all your best intentions.
At this tender edge of expansion, you may be experiencing some of these very universal human responses:
Fear of failure
Fear of rejection
Fear of being judged and criticized
The belief that 'I'm not good enough'
Fear of success
Stories of 'I don't deserve this'
Impostor Syndrome or the fear of being 'found out' as a fraud: 'Who am I to think I can do this?'
Resistance to change
The feeling that you're driving with one foot on the gas and one foot on the brake—at the same time
Worry and anxiety
Overwhelm and confusion
Getting distracted or sick or injured
Creating inner and outer conflict
Blaming others / picking a fight with your sweetie
Dropping the ball on commitments
Bumping into things / waves of feeling clumsy
Saying yes to things you don't really want to do as an unconscious way to distract yourself from the task at hand
Upper Limits Problems: a low thermostat for things going well
