Episode 25 - Navigating Shiny Object Syndrome As A CEO
Show Notes

Are you an entrepreneur experiencing self-doubt, perfectionism, or the "shiny object syndrome" that's hindering your progress toward your goals? 

Entrepreneurs often fall into the trap of jumping from thing to thing or building different bridges, allowing perfectionism to take over or getting distracted by shiny objects, which can slow down progress towards a goal. 

In this podcast episode, we explore the benefits of falling in love with the process of becoming great and how this mindset can help you navigate the challenges of entrepreneurship. It's easy to become discouraged when we don't see immediate results or when we allow our emotions and past beliefs to dictate our actions. But by embracing the process and focusing on the journey, we can overcome these obstacles and achieve success in our goals.

Using the example of my training program, I will discuss the importance of sticking to a plan, even when it gets boring or challenging, and how jumping from one thing to another can lead to feelings of overwhelm and burnout. We also discuss and understand the pitfalls of letting our feelings and past beliefs dictate our actions and how this can lead to confusion, and discouragement.

Successful people have fallen in love with the process of becoming great – trusting the process and sticking to their goals. Entrepreneurs should try to do the same and avoid letting their thoughts and feelings dictate their actions. Persevering through the boring or mundane parts of the journey is necessary to achieve success. So if you're ready to become a better entrepreneur, join us for this episode of the podcast and discover how falling in love with the process can help you achieve greatness!

Key Points:

  • Entrepreneurship can lead to questioning yourself or thinking you're doing something wrong, which slows down your progress. Falling in love with the process of becoming great can help dismantle disempowering feelings and interpretations.
  • Shiny object syndrome, perfectionism, and overthinking are beautiful experiences, but if we don't know how to navigate them, they will slow us down.
  • Entrepreneurs need to learn to navigate boredom and not let feelings, beliefs, or past programming dictate their actions. Entrepreneurs who learn to fall in love with the process of achieving their goals will see success on the other side.
