Our chat became incredibly deep when we started on the topic of human nature, and how we, as entrepreneurs, business owners, humans, women, designers, have survival instincts that more often than not hold us back from achieving more. We really talked about the idea of survival and self-preservation. You’ll hear times in our conversation when I had some “AHA” moments when we discussed how good we are at adapting to our current environments that we often don’t push oversells forward outside our comfort zone to work towards the next success.
During my coaching sessions, I often hear “I’m not ________ enough”, but just because you say it and think it, does NOT mean it’s true. Having these thoughts and not looking within may be holding you back from something new exciting and wonderful.
My main takeaway from chatting with Spencer was that we have to challenge ourselves and our mindsets. Our lives, but also our businesses are affected by how we truly see ourselves, by understanding what our passions are, what our core values are. Figuring this out and being honest with yourself, is often more important to an entrepreneur than having the tactical skills to run a business. This episode is a great one to pause for reflection and food for thought.
