Unsupportive Family and Friends?
It’s more common than you think
Have you ever had a dream so big that it scared you, but it also woke you up by making you so excited and happy at the thought of it coming true? Have you ever shared such a dream with a family member or close friend only to have them quench your enthusiasm?

It is natural to want the approval of our family and friends when we are considering stepping out of our comfort zone into the unknown, but it also natural for our family and friends to play devil’s advocate. If our dreams scare us, how much more will they scare our family and friends especially if we are growing
beyond them by pursuing the dream? While their intentions may be in the right place, their opposing thoughts and opinions may limit us. If we are to become all that we were born to be, we have to follow our own instincts, and sometimes that means leaving people behind or not sharing our ideas and dreams until we are so far down the path that no matter their reaction, we are determined to keep going.

The expression “It is lonely at the top” can be true, but it is not just lonely when you have made it. Sometimes, it can be lonely on the way to the top. If you are pioneering a new path, dreaming bigger than anyone around you or trying something totally new, you cannot expect those around you to fully understand or even be supportive. If you find this to be true, it is in your best interest to stop looking for validation from them. This is the time to strengthen your self- confidence and keep your goals and dreams to yourself. Once you have made it, for sure, those who love you will celebrate your accomplishment, but how sad would it be if they limited you from ever getting there just because of their own fears and insecurities?

When the dream is in heart, trust yourself. Find people who have accomplished what you are striving for by reading books, listening to podcasts or following blogs. If you are considering starting a franchise business, there will be plenty of mentors built into the system, and you should use them as much as you need.

Some of us have big dreams, some have small dreams, but no matter how big or small, you are the only one who can make your dreams come true. You may be the only one who believes in you when you venture into the unknown, but that is okay because, ultimately, you only need what is inside of you to fulfill even your greatest dream.

If you are lucky enough to be surrounded by supportive, enthusiastic abundant thinkers then share all of your dreams, but if you are not that lucky, do not fret or give up on yourself. As soon as you start looking for people who think like you do and who have what you want, they will appear. So look to those who can inflate your dreams, and follow the path of those who have already achieved what you desire. Do not let the naysayers in your life determine your destiny.

Your future belongs to you. Dream Big and GO FOR IT.

Do you realize that you are the creator of everything you have, see and are today? If you don’t believe me, try this exercise for the next 30 days: Write down your top five goals for 2021. Write your goals in the form of “I am" or "I have" statements. For example, If you want to have abundant customers to grow your business, write down I have abundant customers to grow my business. Now, upon waking each day, recite these five "I am" statements out loud and with passion. Say it like you mean it. Say it like it has already happened. Then go about your day, but notice how amazing you feel inside. Stay aware of that feeling. Before you go to sleep, recite your five statements again using as much passion as you did in the morning. Repeat this for 30 days.

Some declarations take time, but most appear quickly once you get clear, specific and confident. The universe is precise and works quickly, so be careful what you declare.

As you are becoming aware of how amazing you feel now that you are declaring who you are in the positive, you will become more aware of the negative self-talk you also speak. If you can become aware of the negative talk and silence it, your entire life will change seemingly overnight.

For more information on the power of "I am" statements, or to share how this 30-day exercise changed your life, email me at kim@thedalycaoch.com.

I cannot be happier with the support, encouragement, and true caring coaching provided me by Kim. I began my quest to own my own business on a whim through a seminar offered by an outplacement service. I had been thinking for years about business ownership and the flexibility and rewards it could provide for my family, but had no idea where to begin or what was involved. Kim took the time to truly get to know me, my leadership style, and experience and provided me a very diverse portfolio of options from which to choose. She was there every step of the way, guiding me through the learning process and coaching me through my options until I was confident that I had the best fit business model for what I aspired to accomplish. I encourage anyone who has even briefly toyed with the idea of business ownership to attend one of Kim’s seminars. You will leave encouraged, empowered, and secure in the knowledge that you have been expertly informed and will know whether or not franchising is a good fit for your ultimate goals in life. Thanks for everything Kim! You helped me learn so much about the process and about myself.
