You are a badass

Aug 11, 2023

I've written before about my deep love of You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero. There's a mantra in there that took me a while to cozy up to. Once I did, it was a game-changer.

I just wanna see what I can get away with.

Instead of putting all kinds of pressure on yourself to accomplish/achieve/score/succeed, shift the focus to let's just see what's possible if I try this.  

It's a subtle shift, and one that puts all of the attention on the attempt, not the outcome. It gives you complete freedom to focus on what you can control, which is your effort. It takes the pressure off having to produce a specific outcome. 

Let's face it, even diehard control-enthusiasts like me have to admit that we can’t control the results. 😁

If you want to enroll 3 new clients, there’s a whole lot you can do to make that happen. 

You can:

  • Create impactful programs and services that you love
  • Share them with everyone who would also love and benefit from them
  • Have conversations with your potential clients to see if they’d like to enroll 
  • Do all of this from a place of rich energy so you feel aligned

What you can’t do is make anyone hand over their credit card and pay you. That’s up to them. So why not put all of your focus on what you can do?

Once you go all-in on the attempt, you’ll probably get an even better outcome than you hoped for. 

Think of something you’re working on now that has an outcome you really want. Notice where you’re focusing your effort - is it on the results or on the action you can take?  Make whatever shifts you need to. Let yourself see what you can get away with. Then enjoy the payoff.
