Could your self worth do with a turbo boost to reach your goals before the end of the year?
Are you ready to uplevel your business and life but your self worth needs a polish up?
Our self worth is the cornerstone of peace, happiness, freedom and true success.
It is THE most valuable work and self inquiry that we can undertake on our adventure to create our dream business and life.
My current pregnancy nesting energy has made it surprisingly easy to settle straight back into Melbourne life. I've been getting back into a new healthy routine with some nice new boundaries in place ready for this new phase in both my family life and my business.
A big theme amongst many of my clients lives and business growth at the moment is mastering the art of setting boundaries.
Most of you heart felt high achievers will have learned to set boundaries over the years to get to where you are now... but if you are ready for the next expansion in your business and life... your boundaries need to keep developing, shifting and becoming clearer.
It is impossible to create our dream business and life without clear boundaries in place... but it is an area that many of us struggle with.
It is one of the big reasons we stunt our growth in business and life.
We wonder why we feel so tired, stressed and overwhelmed with everything there is to do.... but if we just did two simple things more often there would be much greater peace, joy and success flowing through our lives.
We are settling back into Melbourne life this week and adjusting back to the time zone... going slooooooooow!
While away in France I had lots of time to reflect on my life and my career during the adventure and I noticed some new fears and anxieties arising about my next chapter that is currently unfolding.
I have spent much time over the years developing my relationship with fear and anxiety, so that it is used as a catalyst for transformation, rather than a weight that holds back dreams and squishes peace and joy.
This week I want to share what I do to face and move through fear rather than let it stop me.
This week is our final week in France as we fly into Melbourne early next week in time for spring and the last trimester of my pregnancy.
What a magical adventure it has been and a dream come true to work from the European summer.
Matt and I have already been talking about where we want to take our businesses and family next winter... but with a new bub on the way... we might wait and see how things feel next year! Ha!
It has been challenging at times travelling pregnant with a toddler but little miss Ruby has been very adaptable... she must have some gypsy blood like her mama!
Where would you love to take your business travelling to?
I have travelled quite a lot with my business over the years so I have put together a few tips for those of you who dream of travelling with your business too!
I'm writing this post sitting under a tree on my 'alone time' afternoon. I've taken myself off to 'the beach' which is really a French Countryside lake with a man made beach. It is a gorgeous crystal green colour with the hills and old stone buildings in the background. The perfect place to allow my words to flow and then have some chillax time.
This week, I feel inspired to share a sad yet powerful event in my life that changed the course of my career for the good. It is a story of how tragedy can be transformed into powerful transformation if we claim it. It demonstrates a way that you too can transform any of your past dark events into rocket fuel for your business and life.
We have now moved to a new area of France, 3 hours further south in the tranquil countryside. It has been great to spend a whole month in each place, first Paris, then La Charente Region and now the Dordogne Region. It has allowed us to sink deeply into the French culture, history and has created plenty of space to recharge and reflect.
One of the things that I've been reflecting deeply on while here in France is getting super clear on my most genius gifts. Not the things that I'm good at or even great at... the things that are my absolute superpowers and my areas of true and unique genius.
We all have areas of genius. Do you know what yours are?
Are you crystal clear on your unique strengths and using them to your fullest in your business and life?
Do you often see people online or in real life living amazing lives and wonder if their lives really are that good or are they just filtering out the crappy stuff?
There is a HUGE amount of filtering going on in social media and in our lives in general that there are very few people keeping it real.
Especially in the personal and business development scene it is filled with shiny promises and photos of people “living the dream” but they are not necessarily free behind the scenes.
I have been guilty of this too over the years and have been afraid of sharing certain unpleasant or challenging aspects of my life for fear that it will deter people from wanting to work with me.
However, as I have become more transparent and more real in my sharing, I've found that YES it may turn some people away but being completely authentic in our business attracts much more aligned clients and business experiences to us.
The more we hide behind a persona in our business and our life in general… the more we attract clients or friends/partners who are also not fully aligned with their word.
They don't follow through with what they say they are going to do. Clients don't pay what they have committed to pay, they don't put in the effort they committed to put in, they don't take action on your guidance and wonder why they haven't gotten results.
Our clients often mirror how true and real we are being and show us how authentic are message is.
Ahhh gotta love the mirrors!
So today I want to share some of the realities behind the scenes of living my dream life to inspire you to show up with more authenticity and truth in your business too.
How are your current stress levels?
Are you feeling the squeeze of pressure in your business and life?
Do you know what you need to regain your balance?
This time away in France from my usual Melbourne routine has been powerful to bring my stress levels back to their usual level.
It didn't realise that my stress levels had risen until I was sitting by the pool here in the French countryside. I could feel myself deeply exhaling and my mind quietening.
Stress is one of those things that can creep up on us... so we need some powerful practices in place to ensure it never reaches unhealthy high levels.
Sending much love and French sunshine for your day.
Ooh la la... travelling with a toddler sure can be challenging!
I've found that the only way for me to really relax, into anywhere near the deep levels that I am used to, is to calve out some alone time and me time which can be challenging for any parent.
Family time and together time is fun and playful but my personality type craves silence and nature time to keep clarity, balance and focus.
Non negotiable alone time is a weekly staple for me even as I travel.
If I don't get my alone time on a regular basis... I am grumpy, emotional, indecisive and much more unproductive in my work. The inspired ideas don't flow, I second guess what I write more, I operate more from my head than my heart and soul... the wheels start to fall off the success and fulfilment wagon. Oh no!
One of the biggest patterns that over the years has got in the way of my own success and that I see effect most of my clients... is over-responsibility for others needs as this deep seeded and common pattern is what drains our time and energy from honouring our priorities in business and life.
It's time to stop this unhealthy pattern of over-responsibility in it's tracks and take your power back so that your true potential can emerge!
Much love from the tranquil French Countryside. We have settled into our new home for a month and the crazy pace of Paris feels like a world away.
My belly is growing fast as the little miracle inside develops and expands.
We adults are designed to continually grow and expand into new heights of our potential... however we often hit stuck and stagnant points along the journey.
Ever feel like your business or your life is being held at a certain level and no matter how hard you try to keep moving forward... things just don't seem to budge?
It can feel like there is an invisible ceiling above you that you can't seem to penetrate no matter what you try.
It can happen when you are trying to heal an illness, find a job, grow your business passed a certain point, change an emotional pattern you've been stuck in... these stuck places can happen in any area of life.
What we need when we find ourselves in a plateau or stuck place... is a breakthrough!
