EP 86: The POWER of an outside perspective for your business to keep growing

The POWER of an outside perspective for your business to keep growing

Here’s a hard truth - your brain will always try to keep you safe and comfortable instead of moving towards growth and possibility (that’s why it’s called SELF-sabotage, because it comes from your own SELF).

That’s because your brain’s ONLY job is SURVIVAL - to keep you safe.

Back in the early days, SAFE meant to be safe from predators, finding shelter to survive the night, thinking proactively about food sources and water…

But in today’s day and age, we HAVE food, water, shelter and NO predators… so how does your brain, which is geared towards survival, keep you safe today?

It’s by this silly little thing called your comfort zone.

And an outside perspective is the ONLY thing that can combat a warm, fuzzy, comfort zone that just DOESN'T want to let you go otherwise.

Think of it this way - if you DON'T have outside perspective, you will fall to the trap of your own thoughts.

You may THINK of making a big move or taking that next step…

But you may also start to question if you are doing it right.

Or if you are “good enough” to even do it.

You may start to question "Who am I to think this is possible? Who am I to go out of my way to do this big scary thing?"

And as soon as your brain starts to question in this way… you stop taking action. And when you stop taking action, you stop growing.

In today’s episode, we talk about how to break this habit of self sabotage.

By the time you finish listening, you'll learn:

  • How your brain was MEANT to keep you safe in the caveman age when threats were present... and how it keeps you safe and comfortable in today's day and age when there are NO active threats present
  • Where thoughts like "who am I to think this is possible?" and " I'm not cut out for this" and "they are so much more smart, bold, confident, extroverted, X Y Z more than me" originate from so you can stop them from sabotaging your dreams
  • Why NOT having an outside perspective will make you fall into the trap of playing small, preventing your growth
  • What you can do TODAY to help you grow if you DON'T have someone with an outside perspective to turn to for support

EP 99: The BEST way to use Chat GPT in your business

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Clear & effective communication!

Great podcast from Monica Little! She talks about the power of integrity, changing your mind-set to get stuff done and being accountable (both personally & professionally). The podcast is geared towards small business owners, but really so much of what Monica explains can be applied to various parts of anyone's life. She articulates so accurately many of the thoughts I have about the challenges of being a small business owner. It's reassuring & comforting to hear Monica break it all down in a comprehensive way in order to overcome the struggles. My favorite take-aways were how she explained that believing in yourself = FREEDOM and "how you do one thing is how you do everything".

I’m Learning So Much!

I love listening to Monica’s podcast as a handmade small business owner! She offers so many tangible tips within her episodes that have helped me to believe in and grow my small business. Episode 2 was very helpful as she discusses the power of integrity and using a habit tracker. I loved this concept and will begin to use one. I can relate to so many of the stories she tells about running her own handmade business. Thank you Monica for all of these episodes! I cannot wait to listen to more.
