Growing Your Business: You Are Not Always Going to Feel Like It

Growing Your Business: You Are Not Always Going to Feel Like It

Let's talk about feeling like it or not feeling like it when it comes to growing your business.

Vanessa Shaw here, your Business Growth Mentor with the answers to your questions regarding growing your small business.

Truth is if you're setting those deeply inspired goals for your business and you're wanting to:

  • stretch
  • serve more clients
  • step up in your leadership in your business
  • generate more income's going to require that you get outside of your current comfort zone.

Growing Your Business

When it comes to growing your business, you're not always going to feel like it. Those very things that you're supposed to do. The activities that you need to engage in, perhaps the new networking group that you need to attend.

Maybe you need to start shooting a video for your business or engaging in some new marketing activities or other conversations that you have to have. If they are activities that are going to cause you to grow, then two things are probably true.

  1. They could well be very new activities, therefore, they're going to feel unfamiliar. They may feel scary. You may have some anxiety around them and all of a sudden you don't feel like it.
  2. They may be similar activities to ones that you've already been doing, but now you're skillsets are building and you realize that you have to have a different approach.

Overcoming Resistance when Growing Your Business

For example, I know that this happens in sales conversations a lot when we train our clients to have very effective selling conversations with their ideal clients. They start to realize where they've had their own gaps, where they've played small, where they've possibly not been as bold and clear in those conversations.

Now they're improving their skill set and they realize that they have to have those conversations in a different way. Yes, it feels scary. All of a sudden, they don't want to do it.

A Tip to Growing Your Business Quickly

The thing that you've got to get completely clear on if you are interested in growing your business quickly and not waste precious time, energy, and resources is stop waiting to feel like it. Waiting to feel ready, waiting to feel like doing those activities.

I think that's where a lot of you can go to and I certainly know that I used to go there myself. It was like "Wow, if it feels this uncomfortable, perhaps it's the wrong thing for me to be doing." No, that's the sign.

If it's feeling uncomfortable, this is your opportunity to stretch, to learn, and to grow.

The quick secret there is when you don't feel like it, just quickly acknowledge: "Wow I'm not feeling like this. This must be my opportunity to play a much bigger game in business and just do it anyway."


I’ve been exactly where you are. I know what it feels like when deep down inside you know you were destined for more but things aren’t going fast enough or you’re feeling stuck or frustrated.

Our clients frequently report doubling and tripling their incomes, reaching more people, creating greater freedom as well as thoroughly enjoying the journey of business and leadership growth.

The most noteworthy advice any successful Entrepreneur will tell you, is get a mentor or coach. Skip the costly pitfalls of "doing it all yourself" and start growing your business quickly!
