I was reading this old post of mine called Get out Of Your Own Way.  So much truth in it.  Still pertinent today.

And I’m still dealing with the But Monster.  I want to help as many as I can through my coaching… but the economy, but my job drains me, but I can’t get the damn SEO down, my numerous medical tests are taking up a ton of time, not to mention the medical issues leading up to those tests.  All valid points.

To respond to my “But Monster”, medical issues should be resolved soon.  My job will ease up, and I’m getting better at saying no to extra time.  I’m being helped by an SEO coach.  And about the damn economy.  I am working on figuring out a few new options for differently priced coaching packages.  I want my services to be available for anyone who feels called to them.

I’m working on strengthening my skills in battling the But Monster.  It’s kinda like training for a fight, I would imagine, or any sport.  It takes a lot of training before the moves come naturally.

How do you deal with your But Monster?

Things I don’t understand:

  • People who want to control others
  • Those who belittle others to look better
  • People who make snarky comments in order to feel superior
  • People who claim to be on the same team but do nothing but beat you down
  • Bullies

So… a lot of my head is in that space.  Where I have to honor myself by reaction appropriately to such actions.  I stand firmly in a place that I know my actions are correct, so all should be well.  Trudging through the murk in the meantime… it’s a bit exhausting.

Meanwhile, I am continuing my pledge to push through when something scares me.  I live about 15 miles outside of Portland, Oregon.  I work one town away, and have maybe 4 towns I’m comfortable driving around in.  I pretty much avoid freeways, and I’m not sure why.  But tonight, my middle son was to meet a friend.  In another part of the area, and I had to take him there during rush hour.  On the freeway.  I was nervous.  But you know what?  I did it.  As my son would say, I did it like a boss.  Know what else?  It quite invigorated me.

I’m constantly out of my comfort zone at work lately.  And I make it through.  My skills are increasing, and each day the difficult tasks become a bit easier.

I urge you.  Move out of your comfort zone.  Do something that scares you.  Discover strengths you never knew you had.
