Do you really have control?. Seriously, stop for a second and ask yourself that question.
In every aspect of life and business, you believe that control means success, approval, power, and the belief it will make you happy.
But, do you really have control over anything?
Do you really have control over your business, your employees, and clients?
Hell, do you really have control over your life?
It’s an interesting question. And very few stop to ask this question.
That’s because it’s scary as hell to think that you may not have control over it.
Or that one of those things has control over you.
If you are controlled, then you may believe you have no freedom or power.
And what if I told you that you that you are being controlled?
Bull shit you say?
Well, it’s true. You are controlled by the belief that you have control over the outcome of your business and life.
If you weren’t managed by this belief, you and your business would be a complete mess.
This belief provides structure, support, direction, and a purpose.
So in many ways, being controlled can be a good thing.
But the belief that you have control over every aspect of your business and life is where a lot of issues pop up.
Entrepreneurs LOVE control. I mean, we THRIVE on it.
And it’s this belief in control that can throw a big wrench into the mix.
And in this episode of The Other Side Of Being An Entrepreneur, you’ll hear what you actually have control over and what you don’t.
You’ll learn how control is hurting you and your business more than it may be helping you.
You’ll even learn how to control your beliefs about control.
Haha, that’s some deep shit right there lol.
But it’s the truth.
And it’s this belief in control that can cause so much pain, suffering, and struggle in entrepreneurs.
But NO ONE is talking about this and what to do about it.
So this episode will dive into all of this, and show you how you can take “control” ( see what I did there lol?) of all of this.
It’s a short episode and one that’ll make you think a bit. And if you are feeling overwhelmed or stressed about anything in business…
This’ll be a good one for you to listen to.
