The Moxie Movement

29-01-2024 • 17 mins

🎙️ Welcome to Episode 20 of The Moxie Movement Podcast, where we're tossing out the fluff and getting real about business and life. I'm your host, Sarah Greener, and today we're diving deep into a topic that's been the silent saboteur for many female entrepreneurs: "Hopium".

Episode Summary:

In this episode, we tackle the hidden dangers of relying solely on hope as a strategy in both business and personal challenges. We've all been there, saying things like "I hope it's going to get better" or "I'm hoping to achieve this in my business". But here's the thing: Hope, while essential, is not a strategy. I share personal stories, including a tough journey with my husband's health, to illustrate why replacing "hopium" with definitive action is key to success.

Key Takeaways:

Hope is Not a Strategy: Learn why hope, although necessary, can't be the sole driver of your business and personal goals.

Action Over Hope: Discover how shifting from hoping to doing – using positive, forward-facing language and taking real-world actions – can transform your aspirations into realities.

The Power of Identity: Understand the importance of stepping into the identity of the business owner you aspire to be and how this can massively impact your success trajectory.

The Trap of “It Worked So Well, I Stopped Doing It”: Uncover why consistency in effective practices is crucial and how to avoid the pitfall of abandoning strategies that work.

Why You Can't Miss This Episode:

If you've ever found yourself trapped in a cycle of hoping for better outcomes without seeing tangible results, this episode is a must-listen. It's time to shift from a passive to an active mindset, empowering you to take control and make strides towards the business and life you desire.
