Mindset & Business: The one thing you’re not doing that’s holding you back.

Updated: Apr 20, 2022

Let’s get right to it. No need to read a whole blog post before I give you ‘the thing’ you came here to read. The thing you should be doing, that you’re not doing, is showing up.

Now I know, you might say, Barbara, but I AM fully showing up. I’m working my ass of every day, and giving it my all. I get home tired and do some more work there. I do all the tasks I am supposed to. What more do you expect me to do? I show up fully!

And now I’m here in this stupid blog post, writing that you’re not showing up.

Well, that’s not the kind of showing up that I mean.

When I say, to SHOW UP FULLY, this is what I actually mean.

You show up in a way that is you. You show up in a way where you do the things that you are meant to do, not the things you are supposed to do.

I 100% believe that you are doing plenty of things that you a) don’t really have to do (be honest here) or b) that you don’t really align with.

If you’re doing things in category a, it’s really just a waste of time. Let go of these things. I recommend that you write a list of the tasks you do, and wonder whether they all really need to be done. And if yes, do they really all need to be done by you? You have to work clever here if you’re going for success. It doesn’t make sense when you are a great business woman, that you are doing small stuff that anyone can do. You should be doing the things that YOU do so well.

There is also the b category. Where you do all these tasks that you know are not really where your heart is at. But for some reason you’ve begun to believe that you need to do these tasks. These tasks are really easy to identify:

1) They don’t give you energy

2) You don’t feel happy doing them

3) They leave you feeling unfulfilled

If you are doing any of these a or b tasks, then your work is cut out for you. You’re going to have to let these tasks go. Think creatively in the ways that you can let these tasks go. Is there someone you can hire to do the work for you? Is there an online tool or system that can minimize the work for you? Or what would happen if you just decide not to do the task anymore? Maybe there are parts of the task you can let go, making it less work.

Whatever it is, make sure that you let go of these tasks. Free up your time to do the most important thing: Show up 100% as you.

So what’s that one thing I was talking about that’s holding you back? It’s showing up for yourself in the area’s (and only the areas) where you are meant to show up and do your work. Stop hiding yourself behind other tasks or less significant work. Stop distracting yourself with things that are less important for you to do. Start doing the things that you NEED to do to achieve success.

So stop the excuses and show up. You already know everything you need to know to achieve that success. Go for it, I know you can.
