Nov 9 – Are you too dependent? Are you too dependent on one person? A single client or customer? A single vendor? A resource? An approach? A process that no longer works? Is your business too dependent on you? Whenever you feel limited in your options, it can cause an unintentional codependency that is not serving you in your life or business.
Being able to achieve more of what you desire means being open to expanding your reach and reliance, enhancing your network of resources and support, and being open to possible means and ways to improve upon what you have been doing.
Take an MM&I Moment to awaken to how you may have become unintentionally codependent. Do you need to review and see everything before it can be released or moved forward? Does a single customer represent a significant portion of your overall sales? Do you rely heavily on a single vendor or contractor? Do you rely too heavily on a coworker or team member, and if they are absent, it causes a bottleneck? Are you following a process you know isn’t effective, but the thought of improving or revamping is overwhelming? Do you find it hard to disconnect from your work and business, and feel you must be always available and able to respond at a moment’s notice? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you are in a codependent relationship that is hindering your ability to accomplish even more. Being more open to options, possibilities, resources, and support is where your next level of WOW resides.
