The biggest limitation I hear when I suggest that other women should start their own businesses is “I would love to, but I don’t have the time”. I understand. I am the mother of four children aged 6, 4, 2 and 4 months. I run a multilingual children’s company, have eight people working for me and am in the process of setting up my new company (www.kimconstable.com). If there is anyone who understands time limitations it is me. However, I managed to find the time to start two companies, employ eight staff and now write this blog. What do I have that is different than you? Am I smarter? Stronger? More competent? Maybe, but probably not. Probably the first thing I had that was stronger or better than most was the desire. I found something in my life that pushed my motivation into overdrive, and kick started me into gear. Have you found your desire yet?
You see, true desire is a funny thing. It transcends all your previous convictions and excuses and helps you to see a clear way forward. When you are connected to your dreams and your desire, you will not accept excuses. You will not listen to people who tell you that it’s not possible. You begin to realise that they are only expressing their fears, and really they are unfounded in your life, because you have desire.
So what is it that moves you in your life? What will it take to spur you into action? When will you give yourself permission to find your desire?
