Do you wait until you have it all figured out before taking action towards your goals?

Do you need the guarantee of success before investing in your business or taking a risk?

Being practical is the biggest obstacle that holds women back from achieving their big income and business goals.

“Your desires aren’t practical. Your desires often don’t make any sense. Your desires ask you to do something out of the ordinary, something that most people just don’t do. So if you’re waiting for your desires to make sense and be practical, you’re going to be waiting all your life.”

Giorgia G

The successful entrepreneurs who reach 6+ figures don’t wait until they have it all figured out before taking action. They trust their intuition and take that first step towards their dreams – even if it’s not practical and doesn’t make sense.

In today’s episode, I share why being practical is sabotaging your business and what happens when you dare follow a dream that doesn’t make sense to your head (but feels right in your heart). Let’s dive in!

In This Episode

  • The #1 limiting belief that’s holding you back from reaching your goals. [00:43]
  • What happened when I followed a desire that didn’t make sense and moved to London on a whim. [02:42]
  • What it really takes to reach 6-figures (no one tells you this!)  [06:40]
  • How I increased my revenue when I stopped doing the practical thing and invested in my business. [09:04]
  • The price you (and your loved ones) are paying for doing the practical thing. [11:04]

Quotes

“If I wanted to live my life on my own terms and make my dreams come true, then I had to follow my intuition, not what the people around me were telling me.“

“No one reaches 6-figures by doing busy work and trying all the strategies. The entrepreneurs who reach 6-figures get there by doing something that’s not practical.”

“There’s a reason why very few people reach success. Success requires you to do something out of the ordinary, something that most people would never do, something that is NOT practical.”

“Trust that, if you have that desire, it’s meant for you and possible for you. Trust that, if you dare to follow it, your next step will appear – because it always does.”

Full Transcript

Do you ever wonder why you don’t have it yet, when is it finally going to happen for you? Maybe you want to reach 6-figures, or expand into a new niche, or launching a Youtube show, but no matter how hard you’re working, how many strategies you’re trying, these goals are always out of reach. Can you relate to that?

And when you’re in that place, you know there’s something you’re meant to be doing differently, but you don’t know what that is and so you’re stuck in this vicious circle of doing all the things without seeing the results you want.

I know from personal experience, having been in this place a few times too, and from working with my clients, that the biggest obstacle that’s keeping you stuck where you are and holding you back from reaching your big income + business goals is this idea that you need to be practical. This idea that you need to already have all the resources you need to get started and a guarantee of success before you even take the first step. Does this resonate with you?

But, here’s the thing: your desires aren’t practical. Your desires often don’t make any sense. Your desires ask you to do something out of the ordinary, something that most people just don’t do. So if you’re waiting for your desires to make sense and be practical, you’re going to be waiting all your life.

Let me tell you a story. Growing up in Senigallia, a small town on the Italian east coast, I knew two things. One, I never felt like I belonged there and always felt the pull to move to London. Two: writing is one of my biggest passion and I knew I’d wanted to do something that involved writing for a living. I started talking about moving to London to become a writer since I was 18 years old… and everyone around me told me I was crazy. 

Small Italian girls never leave their town. They go to school, find a 9-5 job, get married, buy a house, have kids, and then go part-time in their jobs so they can take care of their families. I was brought up with the understanding that would be my life, too – and I wasn’t having it. Can you relate to that? Is that what you were told your life would look like too?

I knew there was soooo much more I was meant to do with my life, and that dream of moving to London to become a writer was part of it. I know now that, if you have a dream, it’s meant for you and possible for you. But, at the time, it felt crazy. It certainly wasn’t practical. I knew no one in London. I had no place to stay. No job waiting for me. Why would I leave everything I knew and loved behind to pursue this crazy dream that, according to my friends and family, had no chance of coming true. They prophesized I’d be back in Senigallia with my tail between my legs within six months. Just so you know, it’s been 7 years and I’m still here in London. But I’m digressing.

It took me years to master up the courage to move to London – because it was not practical. Everyone told me I couldn’t just up and leave. It’d be different if I got a job with a company that’d also provide me with accommodation. That’d be practical. But I didn’t have that – and I didn’t want it either. I wanted to have my own business, to be a freelancer, and that required taking a leap of faith, move to London first and figure out all the other bits, like housing, bureaucracy, and job later. It didn’t make sense. It wasn’t the practical thing to do. And yet that’s exactly what I did. Within 3 months of moving to my dream city, I had my first writing client and, a year later, I was making a comfortable living writing.

None of this would have happened if I hadn’t had the courage to do something that was not practical. But what was the alternative? Getting stuck in a life someone else had chosen for me? That was not an option for me. If I wanted to live my life on my own terms and make my dreams come true, then I had to follow my intuition, not what the people around me were telling me. Does this resonate with you? What’s that one big dream you have that you’re putting off because it’s not practical? 

Maybe you don’t want to move to a new country. Maybe you just want to reach 6-figures in your business and you’re wondering what the entrepreneurs who have reached the 6-figures mark are doing that you’re not? You’re working so hard to get there and yet, it’s always out of reach. Let me tell you a secret: no one reaches 6-figures by doing busy work and trying all the strategies. The entrepreneurs who reach 6-figures get there by doing something that’s not practical.

I remember going to a workshop hosted by entrepreneur Daniel Priestly a few years ago, here in London. Daniel was telling the story of how he made 100K in sales in his first month in business. At the time, Daniel had just landed in London and didn’t know anyone here. But he didn’t let that stop him. Instead, he invited a bunch of influencers to a fancy dinner, wined, dined, and wooed them, and after giving them such a wonderful experience, he asked them to promote his product to their big audiences. Next thing you know, he crossed the 6-figures mark in one month! How amazing is that?

And yet, most women would never do anything like that. When I share this story, they’re amazed by what’s possible when you think outside the box… and then they come up with all kinds of reasons why it’s not possible for them. They say things like, “I don’t know any influencers. How can I reach out to a perfect stranger and ask them to promote me?” or “I don’t have the money to wine and dine influencers – and how would I know that if I did, it would work?” It’s just not practical. Are the same thoughts going through your mind?

Here’s what I want you to understand: there’s a reason why very few people reach success. Success requires you to do something out of the ordinary, something that most people would never do, something that is NOT practical. If you keep following the practical programming that’s been instilled into you and you’re waiting to have everything you need before getting started, you’ll never reach your goals. If you could achieve the success you desire by doing what you’re doing now, you’d be there already. If you aren’t, if you want to reach 6-figures or whatever that goal is for you, then you need to do something that you haven’t been done before – and that something usually isn’t practical.

Here’s another example. A few years ago, I was at that crucial point in business when I had more work than hours to do it in. I was constantly overwhelmed, eating every day at my desk, sleeping only a few hours a night, and on the verge of burnout. The quality of my work was starting to suffer too. I couldn’t do my best work when I was constantly exhausted. Can you relate to that?

I knew there was a very simple solution: hire a VA to help me out with some of the workload – especially social media. BUT, I didn’t have the money for it yet. Business was booming but, because I was the bottleneck doing everything on my own, I couldn’t take on the extra clients that would allow me to pay for a VA. It was catch 22. My mind was telling me to do the practical thing and wait to hire someone until I had the money. But deep down, I knew that, if I did that, I’d be stuck in overwhelm and burnout forever. If I wanted to grow my income, I had to do something that was not practical and hire a VA first. So I did. Now I had more free time to work on income-generating activities, revenue went up.

What’s that one thing you knew would be a game-changer for your business and yet you’re not giving yourself permission to do it because it’s not practical? Maybe for you it’s hiring a team member before you have the money to pay for it. Or maybe it’s hiring a coach to work on your blind spots and heal your self-sabotaging patterns, so you can finally reach your goals? Or maybe it’s expanding into a different niche that excites you, but you don’t feel you’re an expert in it yet.

What’s the price you’re paying for doing the practical thing? What is being practical costing you? How much money are you leaving on the table? How is being practical affecting your health? How is it affecting your relationship? What would be possible, for yourself and your family, if you had the courage to do something that’s not practical?

Now, I’m not saying that you need to go into debt or do something dangerous. What I’m saying is, trust your desires. Trust that, if you have that desire, it’s meant for you and possible for you. Trust that, if you dare to follow it, your next step will appear – because it always does. I told you about my moving to London story. I didn’t have it all figured out before I left Italy, but I still took the leap and, every day, focused on the step in front of me. Day by day, I was able to build a whole new life here. The same is possible for you, whatever your goal is. 

So this week, I want you to think about how being practical is holding you back from achieving your big business and income goals. And what’s that one thing you can do, that thing that’s not practical and yet you know will move the needle forward for you? Dare to pursue that.
