𝐏𝐡𝐚𝐬𝐞 𝟏 – 𝐃𝐚𝐲𝐝𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐠 (Unjustified Optimism)
Oh, this phase can be very intoxicating. Everything is new and shiny. You internalized all the motivational quotes, read books and articles and watched countless hours of YouTube videos.
You even obtained some of these precious – make me rich – affiliate links. You all warm and fuzzy. Nothing can stop you!
Start working on your mindset, habits and routines
Take imperfect action
Get ready to be humbled
Don’t make any rush decisions and spend all your money on some hyped up course

Man, this is bloody hard. Nothing, not even a nibble. Hello, little voice – getting louder and louder – I am not good enough, I have nothing of value to give, People don’t like me…
Improving your mindset, habits and routines are key
Beware of shiny objects
Get comfortable with being uncomfortable
Start looking for a mentor
Keep taking imperfect action – you literally have to claw your way out of the valley
Detach yourself from the outcome
𝐏𝐡𝐚𝐬𝐞 𝟑 – 𝐋𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭 𝐀𝐭 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐄𝐧𝐝 𝐎𝐟 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐓𝐮𝐧𝐧𝐞𝐥 (Encouraging Realism)
Your first commission. Might not be much to some, but it’s freaking awesome. You notice you think, feel and behave differently especially in challenging situations. You even move differently, with a slight swing in your step. It’s slowly coming together. All the month of making sacrifices, uncertainty and doubt starting to bear fruit.
Mindset, habits and routine are still key
Really find a mentor now who can help you level up
Stay focused and don’t over-commit thinking you figured it all out
Keep taking action and getting out of your comfort zone

You know how to make money. You really want to positively impact and change peoples lives. Show them how to live life on their own terms. Make an impact. Build your legacy.
Mindset, habits and routine (At every level there is another devil)
Stay humble and grateful
Keep investing into mentorship
