7 Ways Women Block Themselves In Life & Business
My dog , Hachi, spent Monday itching his tail all day; he’d created a wound so raw and big that we had to get him to the vet and pronto.
The vet diagnosed some sort of allergic reaction to a bite for which the remedy was antibiotics and a dreaded lampshade (see below) to prevent further focus on and itching at the wound.
The lampshade blocked him instantly, he hated it, it upset his routine, he couldn’t drink from his bowl, nor keep his eye on the dreaded cat he hates, worst of all he couldn’t sleep, the number one thing a dog needs to have a successful life.
Like Hachi, too many potentially successful women are itching at some “sting” in life and then spending a ton of energy and effort licking the wounds instead of creating success.
They keep themselves blocked with this dreaded “lampshade syndrome”, which prevents clarity, prosperity and longterm vision.
You can blame it on an animal bite i.e. it’s the other person’s fault or an allergic reaction, (same thing, it’s not your fault) but the truth is you’re attaching your own lampshade every single time you start to itch and focus on wounds.
If you’d like to remain in style, visible and be clear on how to have a successful biz and life, do what Hachi did to unblock, remove the lampshade yourself.
If my dog can do it so can you, here’s how….
7 Ways Women Block Their Success In Life & Business
1)Pretending you don’t know what you want.
The biggest “lampshade” to your success, of course you know, you’re just afraid to admit it and shit scared to ask for it ,especially if it means requesting financial support.
Action: Start being honest with yourself then open up clear communication with others on what you actually require from them in order to create what you’d love, if they don’t know what to do for you, you can’t seriously be resentful of them.
2) Choosing instant gratification over long-term success.
A focus on the end product , at the expense of the process, is symptomatic of low self-trust and a need for outside approval.
Action: Get off Facebook and enjoy the process of creating what you’re currently procrastinating on, it may be a new product indeed or a way out of your “death job” , in any case present and consistent action, not immediate gratification,is what will get you the rewards you seek.
3)Competing like a cockerel in a hen-house.
If you’re so great why are you hanging out with hens anyway?
Inspired and creative action leads to success , not a load of quacking with other females competing to be right .
Taking part in low level competition is a block to you getting on with what you need to, to create momentum and success in your life today.
Action: Next time you’re tempted to engage further with the hens, get on with the task that’s lurking in the background!
4)Keeping one eye on the audience at all times.
Action: Stop worrying about what “they” will say about your creativity, product or work, take the next inspired step from within that’s what your audience will notice you for, being true to and doing things for you instead.
5) Focusing on self not service.
“No one cares how good you are they care how good they’re going to be after working with you”. A. Weiss
Action: Think about that next time you wonder if they’re going to like you and commit to being of service successfully instead.
6) Obsession with being original
You learned to talk and walk by copying your Mum and Dad, that doesn’t mean you still do it like them now, does it?
Action :Emulate where you need to if it’ll get you started, you can’t keep that game up anyway, it’s boring,and you will come into your own as you grow.
7) Using poor language .
Repetitions of what you “want” & what you “need” keep you in a state of wanting and needing so why are you repeating that cycle for yourself?
Action: Purchase this book and get conscious about your language, this will have you create not block your success in life and business today.
