Many of my clients hire me because they have plateaued in their business and don’t know how to move to the next level. If I was a typical business coach, I would fire up a spreadsheet, start talking about business models, paid advertising and scaling their offer. But, I have learned from my own entrepreneurial journey that until you truly understand your Zone of Genius, you won’t find more satisfaction at the next level, in fact, you’re probably going to experience further disillusionment and maybe even burnout.
Discovering our upper limit issues has helped so many female entrepreneurs make sense of their perfectionism, imposter complex and self sabotage, and why no matter how hard they work, they just can’t seem to break through a certain income ceiling, or pattern of overdelivering and under-earning. Everyone has these upper limits and the really good news is that once you see them for what they are and understand that they are learned, you stop shaming and blaming yourself and can start focusing on spending more time in your Zone of Genius.
This is where the real magic happens and we can continue to evolve in an upward spiral of success, happiness and well being. In this solo episode, the last in the 3 episode series on the topic, I take you through the same questions I use with my coaching clients to help them discover their Zone of Genius.
Now that you can recognize your upper limits and how to break through them, it’s time to create space for the unique gifts and talents that make you stand out. Here is the link to this week’s worksheet:
