Episode 862 – Give Yourself Permission to Be the Best Version of Yourself: Episode 862

Today on the podcast, we have Anna Harris here chatting with Tracey. She started Prime Cleaning in April of 2021, and went through the whole elite program, stepped back to focus on making those changes in her business, then came back to us and joined our Next Level program. She is here today to talk about the stories she told herself about being ready to move to the next step. To move forward to take her business to the next level. She will talk about what those were and how she worked through them to take steps forward to get to where she is today.

When Anna’s Mindset Shifted

Anna started a cleaning business because she liked the idea of being a business owner and being her own boss. The kind of business that made sense during that time just happened to be a vacation cleaning business. She saw a need and moved into that space. When she started, she was listening to Mike’s podcasts and trying to implement as much as she could into her business. Ultimately, however, she realized the pain of doing everything on her own was bigger than the pain of changing or believing in herself. That was when she came to us.

Deciding Rather Than Waiting for it to Happen

One thing that Anna struggled with when it came to deciding to go all in on her business was whether or not she was worth the investment. Whether or not she could take herself seriously enough to step out and do something scary, even if not everyone agreed with what she was doing. This was a big hurdle she had to overcome. She would get all amped up and then talk herself out of it, over and over again. Finally, she realized that he son was six years old, she had been wanting to do this for six years, and she decided she was done waiting for someone to give her permission to be who she wanted to become. She was just going to decide that she was going to be the version of herself she always wanted to be. And she did.

The Power of Harnessing Your Negative Emotions

At the end of the day, we all have negative emotions, and we are all fighting to get rid of them. But the most empowering thing you can do for yourself is to decide which negative emotions you want to feel, and use them to your benefit. Despair and hopelessness are hard negative emotions. So is failure. But so is fear of trying something new. Drawing courage to do something hard. If you choose these emotions instead, you can use them in momentum towards something positive. And you can get more comfortable feeling those negative emotions as well. 

Final Takeaway: Waiting for someone to give you permission to be who you want to be may never come- give yourself permission and step into the version of yourself you’ve always wanted to be.
