Is Fear Holding You Back from Starting a Business as a Virtual Assistant?

starting a businessYou’ve probably thought a long time about how you can earn a living doing something you love so you have time to live and do the things you truly enjoy. Starting a business as a Virtual Assistant seems like the perfect solution. You’re an intelligent, hardworking woman and you have experience in the workforce that would make you an asset in helping entrepreneurs and business owners achieve their goals. You know that starting a business as a Virtual Assistant would open so many doors for you, but there’s something holding you back: FEAR.

Often, fear creeps up when you’re embarking into the unknown. You don’t know what lies ahead or where the path will lead you. This is an uncomfortable place to be. Like many women, you are accustomed to planning and making sure everything is in order. However, when you embark into the unknown it’ s harder to anticipate the obstacles that will get in your way, the mountains you’ll have to climb, and the water you’ll have to tread through. Therefore, fear seeps in, and, before you know it you can’t move.

Unfortunately, many women allow fear to take control. You listen to those voices in your head telling you that you aren’t good enough, smart enough, or that you don’t have the right skills to be successful. You hear those voices telling you don’t know what it takes to start your own business or become a Virtual Assistant, let alone an Expert Virtual Assistant.

Fear causes you to believe those voices. When you believe those voices of doubt, the journey feels too treacherous because of all the uncertainties and unknowns. You fear failure. Fear makes you doubt yourself. If you allow it, fear will tighten its grip around you so it feels impossible to move forward.

Allowing fear to control you makes you stagnant.

You think:

“Oh, I’ll wait until I’m ready”

“I’ll wait until I learn this new skill.”

“I’ll wait until the time is right.”

With this mindset, you’ll be waiting forever. The time is never right. There’s always new skills or learn or something else that can get in your way.

If you keep waiting, you miss out on the now.

When you start a business as a virtual assistant, you give yourself the freedom to set your own hours, choose your clients, and the services you provide.

You are in complete control. By starting a business as a Virtual Assistant, you can make a great living providing services that you enjoy doing, while still having time to see your kid’s game or your grandchild’s school play. You have the freedom to work from anywhere and the time to volunteer for causes that are important to you.

Starting a business as a Virtual Assistant, enables you to be an active participant in your own life—right now.

Fear is normal. Everyone feels scared. However, even though it’s normal, you’ll never move forward if you don’t do something about it. You have the power to overcome your fear and move forward living the life you truly envision.

How do you overcome your fears so live a life of happiness, freedom, and wealth?

Confront Your Fear

When you make the decision to confront the thing that scares you most, it loses its power to control you. Name the fear. Acknowledge it for what it is. Then, set it aside. Let go of the fear that is holding you back. When you’re no longer scared, you empower yourself with the ability to achieve your goals.

Start with Small Steps

Starting a business is a journey. The journey isn’t always easy, but little by little, day by day, step by step you get through. You overcome the obstacles, discover a path through the mountains, and find stepping stones to get through the water. Set small goals for yourself as your stepping stones to achieve your big goal. Focus on accomplishing those smaller goals, celebrate your successes, and keep going.

Seek Help

You don’t have to take this journey alone. Hire a coach who has already achieved what you want to achieve. A coach has already built a successful business, knows the market, know tips and tricks that will make things easier for you. She will tell you about mistakes she made so you don’t fall into the same traps. Your coach will guide you, challenge you, encourage you, and empower you to reach your true potential.

Pursue Your Goals

Set your mind to it and go for it! Spend your energy on empowering yourself. Acknowledge the progress you have made with the baby steps you have taken. Keep looking forward; what’s next on your list to do? Focus on that and complete it.

Don’t become a victim to your fear. Make the decision to confront your fear and begin living your life with intentionality and purpose. You have the power to achieve your goals.
