Baby Steps:    7 Signs It's Time to Hire Someone

    by Christine Kane

    I remember the first time I hired someone to mow my lawn for the summer. I was a tried-and-
    true D.I.Y. gal. I prided myself on it.

    The only problem was that I freakin' couldn't
    stand mowing the lawn. I'd dread it all week. And
    even though I was happy once it was done, I
    started dreading it again the very next day!

At that time, I was studying several financial and business books. I
began seeing my songs as my
assets. I realized that the simple act of
writing a song like "No Such Thing as Girls Like That" could pay me - in
the long run - WAY more than the money I saved by mowing my lawn.

In other words, I learned
how to value my work in the world. I learned
how to act on that value. It was scary for sure. (The voices in my head
shrieked at me to just bite the bullet and do my own lawn!) But that one
act taught me so much about
success and the value of my time.

These days I've taken it to a much bigger level, and I have a small team working for me.

Now that I'm coaching people, I gently teach them these new ways of valuing their time as they expand into more
success in their own lives.

Here are 7 signs that it might be time for you to hire some help...

1 - You don't have enough time to do the thing you're best at.

What are you good at? What do you want to be good at? How much time do you actually spend doing that thing? If
you're running around getting menial tasks done - and you have no time to
pursue your passion, or engage in your
high-pay-off, high-delight activities, then ask yourself why.

Even if you let go of one item (like shoveling the snow) you're telling the Universe the
value of your time. (And you
know what? The Universe always says Yes.)

2 - You resent people who don't struggle.

This is a big one.

If you hold resentment for people who live life with joy and ease, this could be telling you that you are waiting for
rescue. That just leads to more struggle.

Only YOU are in charge of whether or not you struggle. Rescue yourself and learn what true empowerment
feels like.

3 - You're worried about the economy

Waiting for the economy to get better before you'll hire someone? Why not become a part of the solution and use
your money to
improve the economy?

While everyone else is pulling back and firing people - you can experience what it's like to
be the change you wish
to see in the world!

4 - You think that no one can do it as good as you.

If you just shouted "Amen Sister!" - then please step away from your computer. Go to the bathroom mirror. Look into
that mirror and say the following aloud:

"I have a bit of a control issue."

The belief that no one can do it better than you serves only to keep you in the role of the Martyr. Unless you are,
say, a brain surgeon, then there are many people who can (and will) do it as good as you.

5 - You're not playing to win. You're playing not to lose.

Ask any coach or athlete about this.

When you play to not lose, all you're doing is surviving, relying on yourself and hoping no one notices you.

When you play to win - you take risks, you keep your mental attitude strong, you rely on the team, you look for the
goal. Decide that you want to play to win.

6 - You've used this phrase at least once in the past week: "By the time I show someone how to do it, I could
just do it myself."

This is a classic phrase of someone who refuses to succeed. It's the mantra of the struggle-addict.

Learning how to delegate is
empowering. Not just for you, but for others as well. Besides, when you show them how
to do it once, they can keep on doing it so you don't have to!

7 - You dread certain things so much that they don't get done.

It's okay to not enjoy aspects of your work or your life. (Most musicians don't like doing their own newsletter, for
instance.) This is the
exact thing you can hire someone to do.

What items do you dread? No matter what they are, when you get them off your plate, you'll experience more energy
just knowing they're getting done - and you don't have to worry about them anymore!
