ohhhhh…. I can not even start to count the times I felt this when I first started my business and even when I relaunched it 3 years ago.
FEELING GUILTY/WRONG/ICKY/*INSERT WHAT EVER WORD COMES UP FOR YOU* FOR MAKING MONEY ON STUFF PEOPLE CAN DO FOR LESS
Wondering who the hell am I to be charging double, sometimes even triple what it would cost people to do the adventure by themselves.
Oh, and lets not even start with the c bomb that is the killer of all dreams… COMPARISON.
Comparing what I was offering to a few other bizzes and then judging myself for being ‘greedy, not good enough, wrong, [again insert whatever word might be resonating for you].
She’s been quite the journey to really understand and feel solid in what I’m charging and making in my biz.
And now as a coach, I have at least one conversation a week with clients around this topic.
Is ditching the guilt and happily charging what you’re worth an ‘overnight transformation’…. ummmm…. yeah but nah.
So the realistion/breakthrough/learning/new understanding is instantaneous, so yes in that essence ‘overnight’, but…..
Its the build up to, and perturbation process that takes the ‘time’, and then in itself can be anywhere from mins to months.
Sort of like a feeling uncomfortable at the edge of my comfort zone, then a finally a willingness to explore that it might just be me (gasp say it aint so!), then a leaning into that comfortableness some more and moving past my current way of thinking, and then eventually a ‘pop’ when something clicks and a realisation that takes you a new awareness and understanding.
It’s so easy to not see, or totally miss the value of the service that we provide to our client brings, and how much our old money beliefs get triggered when we start to step into a new space liek starting biz.
Especially if you haven’t done it before or you’re busy comparing yourself to others in your industry.
So if you’ve always wanted to start that biz, or launch that product in the space of adventure, the outdoors, exploring or travel, then lets do this:
