As entrepreneurs, there are times when we’re faced with a major task — something so monumental and change-making that we have to say, “I’m doing this, and there’s no going back.”
We have to burn our boats, just like Hernán Cortés did back in the 1500’s when he set out to conquer the Aztec empire with a very sparse army.
(As an aside, can I just say I’m so glad that our community of Conquerors totally redefines what it means to Conquer? We’re doing it with so much love and bringing our gifts to the world, it’s really beautiful…)
I’ve burned the boats in my business more than once – but the most important time that comes to mind was a few years ago, before we built the gorgeous She Takes on the World site we have today.
I’m sharing that story with you in today’s episode of She Takes on the World TV *and* talking about how you can tell when it’s time to burn YOUR boats an entrepreneur:
Now I want you to take the time to explore that BIG question: Is there a big call you have to make that you’ve been holding back on – even though you know the risk is worth the reward? Perhaps it’s time for you to go ‘all in’ on your business in a way you’ve only been dreaming about.
Today, I challenge you to set those “boat burning” wheels in motion – if your heart is telling you to move on, take a new direction, or start from square 1 with no going back.
Take 20 minutes to journal out the possibilities that could unfold if you were to cut ties, and move forward – WITHOUT worrying about the money you’ve already spent, or what other people might think.
What you uncover might surprise you and I’d love to hear all about it in a comment below.
Thank you so much for watching this episode and I hope you’ll share it with someone who might need this message today. I’ll see you next time on She Takes on the World TV!
