After 20 years as a practicing psychologist, Dr. Carrie has learned a few things about emotions and how they affect our actions.

She uses her expertise to get people out of victim mode and into creating the rich, meaningful life they’ve always wanted. If the life you’ve been dreaming of includes leveling up your business, she’s got some GREAT advice for you!

Dr. Carrie wants you to put your emotions to the side and get very real about what’s working in your business and what isn’t. She believes that your assessment has to go far beyond what you’re feeling and into the reality of what’s REALLY happening in your business.

Relying on your emotions alone won’t get you to the next level. In fact, it might actually hold you back from taking that next step! But when you can move past your feelings, you can get a real sense of the action you need to take to propel your business forward.

“Moving beyond emotions means doing an assessment of what is actually going on in reality. What are you thinking? What are your best next steps? What’s the move that’s going to make the biggest difference, not the move that’s going to make you feel the most comfortable?”

Putting your emotions aside allows you to see what you really need to do to take your business from here to there, and this is how you get started:

  • Understand that you can’t wait until you feel comfortable to make a move.

Dr. Carrie reminds us, “If you wait until you feel motivated and comfortable to make anything happen, you’re going to be waiting forever.”

  • Motivation comes with mastery.

Take action first, and the motivation will follow! Confidence often comes after you’ve actually gotten the ball rolling and you’re seeing some positive results.

  • Leveling up requires feeling uncomfortable.

Discomfort isn’t a bad thing – it simply shows that you’re willing to do something hard!

  • Slow down.

Take the time to do a REAL assessment. What is actually going to move you forward? What are your most important values? What are you looking to achieve, and what are the actions that will get you there?

  • Don’t focus on perfection.

Dr. Carries says that people often stall in their business and personal lives because they feel like if they can’t get it all the way right, they shouldn’t even try. But that’s certainly not the case!

“If you can get 80%, you probably have enough information – MORE than enough information – to make a move.”

When you can get real, you can truly identify your strengths and leverage them to build your business.
