Each and every time I have made a decision to invest in growing my business (or even in my own personal growth), a couple of things happen shortly thereafter.
First … something immediately comes up to make me question my decision. Usually, it’s something that impacts me financially. I’ve seen other folks say that they get impacted health-wise.
This time, what’s coming up is a huge unexpected investment I need to make in care for a family member that just about equals the investment I’ve committed to make in my business. Double gulp.
Of course that immediately has me rethinking whether I can afford to make the investment in my business.
But the truth is, I can’t afford NOT to make the investment. It’s what’s necessary to take things to the next level and I simply can no longer stay where I am.
The second thing that happens IF I maintain my commitment to moving forward, the resources I need show up. Every time.
It’s such a test of trust. And I personally have some big issues with trust. What about you?
So, I’m not entirely sure where the money is going to come from for the big investment at this very moment.
I was going to use some new credit that I had earmarked to start a new business, but now I’m going to be using that credit to pay for my family member’s care so I’ll need to find another source.
What I do know is that it will show up.
I choose to stretch.
It feels so gooooood when I do. Alive. Sure. Knowing I am on path to the next step of growth in my life and business. And I want that for you too.
The key is getting clear on what the next right investment is for you.
Here’s the criteria:
1. It’s the path to the exact next step for you.

2. It’s a stretch.
3. It scares you just enough for you to feel your aliveness.
