Our business and life is often a mirror of our thoughts and beliefs.
What does your current business and life look like? And even more importantly how does it feel?
If you could take a snapshot of exactly where you are at in your biz and life, would you like what you see?
Rather than get a vague picture of where you're at it's so valuable to get some real clarity on each important area in your biz and life.
When I first starting writing a blog in my business with the aim of turning my face to face business online, it was really hard to talk about myself.
I would talk about topics of interest but they lacked connection.
Over time I became more confident to share personal things about myself to create the necessary connection with my clients. My business instantly picked up and I had people booking in after reading my blog posts. It's amazing how much easier it was for new clients to share their deepest fears and their most secret dreams when they felt that they knew me.
Many of my business mentoring clients are scared of looking egotistical or narcissistic so they avoid talking about themselves... but they miss out on creating the essential connection that is required to create trust in business.
So my biggest business tip this week is to have the courage to share your story, to share your experience, to share your personal anecdotes to bring your blog posts to life. And on that note I have a list of 10 quirky things to share that you don't know about me.
Does it seem the world is spinning at a faster rate every single year?
Feel like your life is speeding by like you are sitting on a high speed train?
Ahhhh where are the brakes!
How can we slow this thing called life down?
These days time really is our most precious commodity.
So so so so precious!
Have you noticed that as you take steps towards your dream, often there is a resistance that can arise is in equal proportion?
It's like there are invisible strings that hold you back.
You have your eyes set on your dream...
...you want to move forward but each step that you take feels weakened by a heavy feeling,
OR a tsunami of negative thoughts
OR a wall of fear
OR a mountain of set backs
OR all of the above!
Are you ready to live at your potential?
Let's use the fresh new energy that is still floating around in January and get crystal clear on what you need to do to expand into your next level of potential.
But before we do... let's get clear on what potential really means.
Many clients tell me they feel they are not utilising their full potential...
... but what is potential anyway and how can we measure it?
The dictionary tells us potential is... latent qualities or abilities that may be developed and lead to future success.
So our potential is simply a collection of skills required for us to actually reach what we feel we are capable of.
It is the process of growing into our dreams.
So potential equals growth on ALL levels!
Are you blown away too by the knowledge and freedom the internet provides?
It is a powerful time that we live in where all sorts of products and services are available to us at the click of a button.
If I could kiss the online world I would. Mwwwuuaaggghhhh!
It has given me the freedom to earn great money, doing what I love and to live a life I only dreamed of years ago! Cliche phrase but it's true.
Today my partner is spending a few hours with baby Ruby (who turns 1 year old soon! Ahhhh!) and I have driven just 5 minutes up the hill from my house to commune with the trees!
Some forest time is what this mumpreneur needs to get inspired and focused for the week ahead.
I hope that 2017 has kicked off well so far and you have spent some time charting your voyage forward this year.
It is a powerful time of year to dive deep into the magic of silence and uncover some of your deepest yearnings.
We live such busy lives these days and it is easy to forget and overlook our silent longings amongst the haste.
So I humbly suggest you do yourself a favour and claim some silent time over the next few days and ask yourself... what do I really want this year?
It sounds like an easy question BUT for many of us who are sooo good at looking after other peoples needs, it can be challenging, and feel selfish, and appear greedy, and seem over indulgent to actually go for what we really want.
I hope you all had a lovely xmas and are gearing up ready for the end of year and new horizons in 2017.
May you dare to dream big next year.
May you clear the shackles of playing small.
May you rise to shine in the way you where born to.
May you listen and follow the wise visions that are placed in your minds eye for you to create.
As the 'christmas crazies' arrive we need to keep our sense of humour alive in both our business and our life.
We need to learn to transform our business and life stress into an awakening and to do this we need to get the joke!
Have you ever laughed so hard that you cried? Or worse…peed your pants?
Years ago, I was blessed to spend time with a master in India who told me a joke that has had me laughing on the inside ever since.
She introduced me to the truth of who we are beyond this body and mind.
It was the most mind-blowing experience of my life!
She figuratively slapped every false identity I had of myself until I could see, without a doubt, the truth that lies at the source of all life.
Love. Peace. Wisdom. Power. Success. Freedom. Abundance.
These are the essences of who I am.
If I had a dollar for all the times people have told me they are too busy to do this or that, I would be a billionaire by now!
"I'm too busy" appears to be the new black!
It's sooo in fashion and trendy these days that most of humanity seems to be trying it on for size!
