Am I Worth It?

(I sent this out to my email subscribers yesterday. The
response was so overwhelming, I though I would post
it here. Not subscribed? Fix that here:
Am I Worth It?

I just woke up from a stellar nap and the small turks are all
still asleep. Which makes this the perfect time for me to
think and write.:-)

Two questions are showing up that I would like to share with you.

1) What’s the cost of staying right where I am?

When I get bogged down and can’t seem to get moving
forward on what I want, I feel horrible – lost, drained,
unfocused and grumpy. 

Why would I willingly choose such a miserable place?
Two reasons:

a) I’m getting some sort of payoff by staying right where
I am. It may be safety, or being right, or any number
of other things. But there is ALWAYS a payoff if
I choose to stay someplace I don’t like.

b) I don’t want to admit I need help getting out of
the bog. I like my self-sufficient persona, thank you
very much. I want to solve my own problem. 
The problem is, the more I try to get of out the bog
alone, the more I sink into the quick sand. Bad

To turn around either of these scenarios, I’ve got to be
willing to 1) admit I don’t have all the answers and 
2) pay for help from people who know more than I do. 

And pondering how to do that brings me to my
second question:

2) Am I worth investing in?

By that I mean am I , Sarah, and the business ideas
I want to bring to fruition, worth sinking my own
cold hard cash into?

Of course the knee-jerk reaction is “Of course!”.

But when I look at the conversations I have with 
myself, that isn’t exactly true.

“I can’t afford the help I need.”

“That person who holds the expertise I need wants me to 
pay him what?  There’s no way I can afford that.”

“I’ll just figure out a way to use the free stuff that’s out there.”

All of these thoughts add up to the same thing: 
I don’t believe I am worth sinking cold hard cash into.

Not a pretty thing to admit, but there it is.

Mercifully, I am fixing that. I’ve chosen to invest in
myself in a very big way. It’s the only way to get 
where I want to go. And you know what?

It feels great! Not only the work that I am doing,
but the fact that I am declaring to myself and to others,
“Yes! I am absolutely worth investing in!”, is changing
how I move in the world.

I feel bigger, bolder, stronger and even more
purposeful. And I am working my heart out
to make sure I get every single penny’s worth
of value from my investment. 

So, if you are feeling bogged down, stuck,
confused, and dis-heartened, I hope you’ll visit
with these two questions:

1) What’s the cost of staying right where I am?
2) Am I worth investing in?

And, if it feels like the right thing to do, I
hope you will thoughtfully consider joining
me for my live event in just two weeks.

There, you will have a team of expert help
to get you out of the bog ( me, Bob Burg,
Les Mckeown, Elizabeth Marshall, Janet
Goldstein and Jen Louden – just to name
a few).

You can read more about it and reserve
your seat here:


P.S. For the record, I want you to know that 
deeply believe you are worth investing in. And
I believe you will find the right support to invest
in so that you can stand boldly in the world. 🙂
