015: But What If You Could?
If you could do anything, if you had no limits whatsoever, what would you do? Where would you go? How would you grow? If the impossible became possible, what would you be just so incredibly excited to create? Perhaps, as I was asking you those questions, you journeyed with me on my little thought experiment and allowed yourself to dream. Or perhaps you resisted. “I do have limits,” you might have argued. “The impossible, by its very definition, is not possible. I need to be realistic. I can’t do those things.” But what if you could? What if you could achieve those far-off dreams that you are today labeling “impossible”? What if you weren’t limited? Today, we’re going to stretch your concept of what you can do. We’re going to challenge your limits. We’re going to ask, “but what if you could?” In this episode, you will learn:
- What strategies you can use to quiet the internal doubts that are holding you back
- How to improve your mindset so you can effectively problem solve within your business
- What to do when you find yourself stuck in your business
- Why envisioning far-off pie-in-the-sky dreams for your work and your business can actually help you overcome obstacles in your business right now.
In this episode, I reference the song "Impossible" from Rogers & Hammerstein's Cinderella. Here are three recordings of this son that I enjoy: Recording 1, Recording 2, and Recording 3, my favorite. (Who doesn’t love Julie Andrews!)
I also mention Starving & Panicked No More: Business Strategy and Text Breakdown for the Thriving Actor, my upcoming in-person workshop in New York City on March 26, 2023. If you'd like information about this event, visit my website for all the details.
