How do you deal with setbacks and disappointing results in your coaching business? It’s so easy, in the Instagram age, to look at other people’s businesses and think everyone else is more successful than you, and there’s something wrong with you. It’s wonderful to create a vision of where you want to go with your business … but it’s also very easy to get discouraged along the way.

In this episode I talk about how to hold true to your vision and how to overcome setbacks, challenges, and disappointing results.

I have several mindset reframes around this, and also four important questions to ask yourself as you’re facing challenges and setbacks.

Here’s where you can listen in:

How To Hold On To Your Vision — No Matter What

I’m willing to bet that you have dreams and goals, and sometimes it may feel like you’re never going to get there.

You may have a beautiful vision for the future — and in fact, this week’s episode goes hand in hand with my previous episode, which is all about creating a vision board for your business and your life.

You may have this gorgeous, inspiring vision for the future that you deeply want to create for yourself … but you may face some setbacks and some obstacles when it comes to making it a reality.

So, it’s important to think about how you’ll stay strong and hold on to that vision, so you can weather those setbacks , and so that you actually DO get there.

In this episode, here are some of the things I talk about …

  • how to manage your expectations
  • how to create a non-negotiable mindset
  • how to discover what you’re making your setbacks mean (and why it’s a problem)
  • how to decide what you need to believe … and who you need to BE, in order to achieve your goals.

After you listen, tell me: if you’re currently experiencing a setback … how do you intend to deal with it? And how are you going to handle the next obstacle you face in your business. I’d love to know!
