Is it time to tackle that Upper Limit?

Ever have those moments where you’re ready to leap forward in your business yet you find old stories are holding you back?

I know that happened to me recently. About a two years ago I had a really rough experience with a project. It was for the biggest budget I had done to date. 

Because of this, I had it in my head I that that meant I had to say yes to every request made by the client.

Enter scope creep hell stage left! 

Well, I survived the project but the damage had been done. I finish it swearing I’d never do another project of that size ever again!

And because of this, I turned down several amazing opportunities all because of this one challenging experience.

Thank goodness for coaches 😉

When I had my most recent opportunity to turn down a big project my coach gently said to me: “I think you are hitting an upper limit”

Crap! She was right. 

But here is the thing I realized. Just because I let a past project spin out of control did not mean I had to let new ones 😉

 
Instead, I could use this new insight and the new project as an opportunity to grow.
 
So despite my fears, I decided to take on the project.
 
And guess what … I LOVE MY NEW CLIENT!!!
 
So I want to ask you today: 

  • Where are you holding yourself back due to past experiences? 
  • Have you created an upper limit for yourself and is it time to push through it?

If you need any support, know I’m happy to help.
