I know how ambitious you are, so I’m guessing you’ve already written out your New Year’s resolutions and goals. 😉 Or maybe you’re like me, and you set them a month and a half ago… (don’t judge, I get excited!)

It’s incredible to know exactly what you’re going for! It’s such an exhilarating feeling, and it’s a massive step in the right direction.

I speak with many women who know what they want, too – and a lot of them even know just what they need to do to get there.

But I’ve found a common challenge among most women who are still struggling to increase their income and scale their business. Even though they know what to do, they keep themselves from doing it.

Not intentionally or consciously, of course. But it still happens.

Often, change doesn’t feel so easy. You might set out to adopt a new habit or get rid of a limiting one… only to find that it’s so much more challenging than you initially thought it’d be.

But I want to let you in on a little secret.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

Whatever issue you’re dealing with right now, it’s not that complicated to figure out. It only feels that way!

So why does it feel so hard??

It’s a self-image issue.

Maybe you don’t see yourself as good enough or capable enough. Maybe you don’t see yourself as a person who attracts (or deserves!) solid support and team. Maybe you don’t see yourself as a woman who asks for what she wants – and gets it. Maybe you don’t see yourself for whom making money is EASY!

This is pivotal. Your self-image determines everything that happens to you.

It affects your performance, behavior, confidence, mental health… the list goes on. So naturally, it’s going to come into play when you’re setting new goals and initiatives.

But what could become possible for you now – if you could solve this problem RIGHT NOW?

And more importantly… What will happen if you DON’T solve this problem? What do you stand to lose?
