Have you ever felt the green eyed monster rear it's head when you look at other people's business success?
Have you felt the gut wrenching punch of the 'I'm not good enough' voice that can often berate us when we get the measuring stick out and compare ourselves to others?
“She has more of this and more of that. He is better at this or better at that.”
We often don't just compare business success... we compare our looks, we compare our partners, we compare our lifestyles, our jobs, our children, our bank balances.
Ever felt like you are on a roller coaster of emotions as you grow your business?
One day you feel on top of the world, skipping happily through your to do list and the next life has pushed your buttons and you begin the spiral downwards towards the pit of procrastination and frustration.
Up, down, up, plateau, doooooooooown, up, down, plateau!
This strange but oh so common phenomenon is referred to as the roller coaster of business and life.
Does money stress you out?
Do you hold yourself back from doing things you love because of money?
Do you feel stuck at a certain income level?
Our relationship with money is often overlooked yet it is a very powerful relationship worth healing.
Money is a huge source of stress and worry for so many people and much of the worry can be released when we have the courage to clean up our money story.
Do you find that some things you ask the universe for arrive in an instant.... POOF!.... and others seem to never manifest no matter how many affirmations you say or visualisations you undertake? Weird huh!?!
The Law of Attraction has been a topic of great discussion over the years since the book The Secret was released.
It is a powerful law that states... ask and you shall receive... what you focus upon multiplies... we attract what we think.
I'm sure that you are all well aware of this law and have seen it work in your life many times... AND I'm sure that you have seen it also appear NOT TO WORK!
So why does The Law of Attraction seem to work for us sometimes and not other times?
Why are you a master of manifesting in one area of your life and seemingly hopeless at it in another area?
What is the missing ingredient that allows this law to work for us all the time and in all areas?
Do you ever dim your light in certain company because you don't want to be cut down like a tall poppy?
Do you hold back your success for fear of being criticised or judged?
Tall Poppy Syndrome is common in Australia but is evident in all Anglo-nations. It is a social phenomenon where people who are seen as successful in an area are resented, attacked, cut down or criticised... simply because of their talents or achievements.
There is a gorgeous intimate bunch of souls joining together and diving into orientation tasks this week in the Peace Passion & Profit Mastermind. Souls who are ready to move forward in their business and life and it's not too late to join them.
It is so inspiring to witness people saying YES to their dreams and beginning the adventure of creating them one baby step at a time.
That energy of change, forward momentum and new beginnings is so exciting but what can we do when we feel stuck and don't know what to do to move forward?
I remember times of feeling stuck in my career and it's quite an uncomfortable place.
The stuck place is so often filled with indecision, lack of motivation, fogginess, heaviness and no real clarity of how to get out of the hole we may have found ourselves in.
We may try to take steps forward but each step feels like it is met with a wall of resistance and we end up feeling like their is no hope even bothering.
"Let me out of this sink hole! Ahhhhh!"
Do you often get stuck in the muddy shores of overwhelm?
Does your "too much to do" frenzy meter go off way too often and halt or slow your progress to create your dreams? Ahhhhhhhh!
Overwhelm is so common amongst business owners and entrepreneurs because, YES let's face it, there is always an endless to do list.
We never really get it ALL done. There is always MORE that we could be doing.
So how can we keep calm and centred as we go about our to-do list rather than spinning in overwhelm?
This issue of overwhelm is one that I dived deeply into recently with a few business mentoring clients and I'd love the share the insights that have helped them move past it, as great examples of how overwhelm can be seen for what it really is.
Stories of breakdown and breakthrough are what have often inspired me to keep going and to step up in my business and life, so today I want to share my own story of breakdown.
The success and client flow that I have created in my business today hasn't always been the case. I've certainly had times struggle and even breakdown moments in business that have been my doorways to breakthrough!
One of my most challenging moments in my business was 4 or 5 years ago when I was living in Byron Bay. I was living in a simple one bedroom yurt overlooking the ocean and seeing clients from home.
Do you feel successful?
Well whether you do or not... it's time to embrace your current success!
We live in a world that is obsessed with success. We struggle and strive to be greater, bigger, faster, stronger and wiser. Success is like a carrot that dangles before us and we often run ourselves dizzy, going in circles just to get a taste of it.
Well bugger that I say!
Do you feel like much of your day is spent looking at a screen?
Is it time to unplug from technology and recharge your creative fire?
I'm back from magical Bali and have just finished a 10 day technology detox that has left me feeling amaaaaaaaazing!
