Save Yourself

“No one is coming to save you.”

I heard or read this recently from someone, and it struck a chord with me.

I’ve always felt a little bit out my depth with my own business.

I’ve always felt that if I can just get “this special person to help me – then that will make the difference” but it turns out that that person will likely never turn up.

The reason is: there’s no one who has all the answers.

So rather than thinking about who can save you, help you, inspire you, guide you….try to realise that you are the only person who gets to choose and do what you do.

This can be a worry, especially in the transition from dependence to independence. But once you do realise this, it kind of frees you up to crack on and try things.

I’m not saying mentors, people, books, programmes can’t help – clearly, they can – but to looking at them as the solution is to dismiss your own worth and ability.

So “save yourself” this week.

Action the things YOU think might work. If they don’t work, dust yourself off and try something else.
