Attn: Women Entrepreneurs with ADHD or anyone who procrastinates, gets distracted easily, can’t seem to stay on track, has trouble with being organized.
Have you been at it awhile and still not making the income you deserve? Or just getting started but not making much money yet?
Many entrepreneurs and business owners deal with the stress of overwhelm every day. Not to mention limiting beliefs and self-sabotage.
It’s hard to make decisions. Too many options. Too many distractions. Too many doubts.
From solopreneurs to bricks and mortar store owners, many of us feel rushed, filled with doubts, continually distracted.
We often find ourselves impatient with others.We’re less self-confident and eager to regain control of our lives and businesses.
You may be Suffering from Self-sabotage:
Watch out! It Can Kill Your Business!
Limiting beliefs cause self-sabotage. But once you understand your limiting beliefs, it’s easier to defeat them!
For example, perhaps you believe you aren’t smart enough to have the business you’ve dreamed of. That limiting belief keeps you in the dead-end job you hate.
Refusing to start a business and staying in the dead-end job become your way of sabotaging yourself.
Instead you could change the word “stupid” to “I don’t know enough.” Then you find people who can help you get started, taking a business class, going to webinars, reading books.
Some Limiting beliefs include
I’m too old.
I’m too young.
Nobody in our family has ever had a business.
I don’t know how to sell anything.
My friends (kids, spouse, parents) won’t agree.
It’s just on the right time now.
Probably a really stupid idea.
My Dad always said I couldn’t do it. He was always right.
And this is only the very beginning of the list.
Our strongest limiting beliefs come from what our parents taught us!
When I was a youngster, my Dad bought all six boxes of Girl Scout cookies I was about to sell. He believed selling cookies wasn’t proper for a little girl. No way would he allow his daughter to ask the neighbors to buy cookies.
Guess what my limiting belief was for years? Right! I took on my Dad’s limiting belief about selling. It wasn’t ok to sell products, coaching, or workshops and seminars.
Once I realized I had taken on my Dad’s limiting belief, I could move forward helping people with my products and services. His limiting belief isn’t my limiting belief.
When you figure out and dump your limiting beliefs, especially ones you learned from your parents, you’ll find your work enjoyable. No more dread when you wake up in the morning.
You’ll be ready to take on challenges whether you’re talking with prospects, coaching clients, or working with your team. Whether you’re writing a blog post, researching your market or developing your business plan.

Recognizing When You’re Overwhelmed
Let’s face it. We’re all overwhelmed. It’s the buzz word of the day.
Just in the last few months Forbes, Huffington Post, PsychCentral, Slate, and The Atlantic all posted articles about overwhelm and what to do about it.
Overwhelm comes from too many choices, too many distractions, too much unproductive “busyness.”
Stress and self-doubt follow as you get little accomplished.
You don’t meet your goals. You don’t make the money you want and deserve.
Overwhelm even affects how we buy jam.
A recent article in the Harvard Business Review showed that when people were offered 24 different kinds of jam, they bought less than when offered six kinds of jam.
The more options we have, the harder it is to choose. Overwhelm causes confusion, and a confused mind can’t make a decision. To have the success you know you can have, you have to reduce overwhelm.
