Transforming disappointment into delight

My brain keeps telling me that it’s too much work.

It doesn’t matter what ‘it’ is:

  • Having a dog.
  • Making dinner.
  • Laundry.
  • Parenting. Especially teenagers.
  • Being a life coach.
  • Starting my own business.
  • Helping people with their sex lives.
  • Heck– having sex.
  • Blogging….

Behind this thought that it’s too much work is a fear of failing, or of the work somehow not being worth it.

I want a guarantee.

But what makes something a failure? What makes something worth it? How do you get a guarantee?

All me. I get to decide what is a fail and what isn’t. Something is worth it because I decide it is. I am the only one that can guarantee this is all going to work out.

And when I think it won’t, I am guaranteeing that too.

I have spent the last two weeks in overwhelm, indecision and basically a big fear-filled pity party.

They said the only thing that would get in the way of a successful coaching business is my own mind drama. I didn’t quite understand it back then.

But now I do.

It’s time to move forward, because I am DONE with the drama.

There are people out there who believe my coaching is so needed. I know because they have told me.

I need to believe it too.

I know it’s not going to be easy. There will be ups and downs. But in the process, I will become a better person for doing it.

I am going to use my failures to pave my way to success. They are not hurdles but hand-holds as I inch my way up the mountain.

So here goes.

I am a life coach. I help Latter-day Saint wives transform their disappointing sex lives into a delight.

Bring it on, Brain.
