Unleash Your Brilliance and Scare Yourself Silly: A Fun Journey to Elevate Your Thinking

A few years back I listened to a podcast by Les Brown where he asked the question, “Are you brilliant enough to scare yourself?” Living on a farm for the last two years, I am constantly being frightened and challenged to step forward and embrace all that there is to learn. Most of the time, after the issue is resolved or an animal is trapped, I fall to the ground laughing at how silly I must have looked or how my old beliefs were so far-fetched to reality. Business is a little more tame…typically but I do enjoy scaring myself and my team silly with my brilliance and theirs.

Welcome, small business owners, dreamers, and doers! Today, we embark on an exhilarating journey where we explore the power of your brilliance and how it can both inspire and frighten you in the most exciting ways. So grab a cup of your favorite beverage, put on your adventure hat, and let's dive into the realm of possibilities, where questioning the status quo becomes the catalyst for extraordinary success.

Embrace Your Inner Maverick:

Imagine a world where everyone played it safe, sticking to the tried and tested methods. Boring, right? As small business owners, you have the potential to be mavericks, trailblazers, pioneers or even geniuses who challenge the norm and create groundbreaking ventures. Your brilliance lies in your ability to think outside the box, to dream big and embrace uncertainty. So, let go of your fears, dare to be different, and watch as the magic unfolds.

Questioning the Status Quo:

The status quo is comfortable, safe, and predictable. But is that really where you want to be? Questioning the status quo is the first step to unlocking your full potential. Take a moment to reflect on your business. Are you doing things just because "that's how it's always been done"? It's time to challenge those assumptions and open your mind to new possibilities. Break free from the shackles of conformity and embrace the thrill of charting your own path.

Elevate Your Thinking:

To truly elevate your business, you must first elevate your thinking. This means expanding your mental horizons, stretching beyond your comfort zone, and embracing a growth mindset. Surround yourself with people who inspire you, read books that challenge your beliefs, and seek the guidance of a business coach or life coach who can help you unleash your hidden brilliance. Remember, the key to success lies in your willingness to constantly learn and grow.

Embracing the Unknown:

As you embark on this journey of elevating your thinking, be prepared to face the unknown. It can be both exhilarating and terrifying, but therein lies the beauty. Stepping into uncharted territories forces you to tap into your brilliance in ways you never thought possible. Embrace the uncertainty, for it is in the face of fear that your true potential shines the brightest.

Scare Yourself Silly:

Now, let's talk about the fun part – scaring yourself silly! Imagine setting audacious goals that seem so big they scare you. These goals become the fuel that propels you forward, igniting a fire within you to achieve the extraordinary. Pushing your boundaries and testing your limits can be intimidating, but it's in those moments of discomfort that your brilliance truly shines. So, dream big, set those scary goals, and watch as your business soars to new heights.

Take Action:

All this talk about elevating your thinking would be meaningless without taking action. Remember, dreams without action are just fantasies. It's time to step up and bring your brilliance into the world. Start by challenging yourself each day, breaking old habits, and embracing new ones that align with your vision. And if you're ready to take it to the next level, reach out and book a call with me. We can go through this exciting journey together.

Congratulations on embracing your brilliance and daring to scare yourself silly! By questioning the status quo, elevating your thinking, and setting audacious goals, you are primed for success. Remember, it's the small business owners who challenge conventions and dream big that make the greatest impact. So, go out there, embrace the unknown, and let your brilliance shine like never before. Your extraordinary future awaits!
