Strap on those red shoes…you’re going to Oz!

Can you imagine how boring The Wizard of Oz would have been had Dorothy quit when she saw those flying monkeys? I wonder how iconic the movie would have really been had she just looked at the camera and said: “What the ****! Flying monkeys? I did not sign up for this. I’m out!” and then just sit on the floor for the following two hours. And so it is…in our businesses.

Sometimes the things we have to deal with make flying monkeys look like a walk in the park, but you HAVE to go through it. You do. You cannot give in or sit down every single time something happens to you because things WILL happen to you…a lot. You need to put your head down and just get over it. You need to believe, even if it sucks, that whatever you are going through is exactly what you need to go through at that exact moment to get stronger, smarter and better at your business.

This is YOUR story and you are 100% in control. You are the hero of the journey that is “your business”. You must, and need to, take full responsibility of everything that is happening to you. You are the only one to decide if your story looks like: She started a business and she was so excited, but then it got hard so she quit. The End. Or if your story looks more like this: She started a business and was so excited, but then it got hard, then better, then hard again, then much better, then hard AGAIN. But she got back up and worked harder and got stronger no matter what the obstacles or how long it took. And then she did it, she succeed. The end.

Because in the grand picture of it all, you are the designated driver of your life. You decide the story, you decide how it ends. If you’re not where you want to be in your business and you are feeling really down about it, I get it, I really do. And so do millions of other women working hard every day just to make their mark in the world and live life on their terms. You will be faced with so many flying monkeys, but I promise you that one day you will get so strong you will look them straight in the face and say “MOVE OUT OF MY WAY”.

The world will make room for those who know where they are going. So put on your big girl shoes and get to work. Your story needs to be written and I cannot wait to celebrate your success when you get your Oz.

You got this!
