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!
I wanted to send some Bali inspiration your way today to inspire you to create the business and life of your dreams!
I am still buzzing from what was an absolute dream working week for me. The Bali Biz Retreat was an incredible experience.
The profound wisdom shared, deep connections made, vulnerable intimacy created and inspired actions flowing were divine.
This is the view of the local village from our patio.
We are halfway through the Bali Biz Retreat this week and there are lots of realisations and transformations happening amongst the participants.
The retreat happens to co-inside with one of th most powerful ceremonies in Bali that honours the light and positive powers... but could negativity also be good for us?
One of the essential keys for me to build a successful online career has been to maintain a positive frame of mind and ignore the naysayers.
I'm in magical Bali this week! Heeeeellllloooooooo!
The photo below is our backyard view for the next few weeks. Simply being here in Bali is one of the ways I am kind to myself in my business... but I must admit I haven't always been this kind to me.
I can be hard on myself at times and I've had to learn to be gentler over the years.
As the loooooooong winter in Melbourne comes to a close I am getting super excited about our Bali trip leaving next week. I can't wait for the tropical vibes but mostly to return to the place that I lived for a year which kick started a shower of miracles in my life. Read more here.
The Bali Biz Retreat begins Sept 5th and it's not too late to join if you're ready to boost your biz in paradise. Apply here.
Fulfilment is one of the values that is non negotiable in my business... and it drives all of my business planning and marketing.
I have a special treat for you today from some of the superstars in the Peace Passion & Profit Mastermind.
They have been busy creating some free offers for their sales funnels (last weeks post) and a few are available for you today.
Yay gotta love freebies!
There are some powerful courses and a meditation for you to check out.
I can still remember very clearly the frustration of not being able to find many clients in my biz and not knowing what to do about it. Ahhh it sucked!
I had so much passion and wisdom to share and thought that my enthusiasm was enough bring me clients...
...I was wrong.
Truth is... to survive online...
your passion isn't enough...
your talent isn't enough...
your positive thinking isn't enough...
your drive to work hard isn't enough...
You also need to learn marketing techniques that work.
No matter how much you want to help people, you need to be able to clearly and confidently express what you help people with in a way that makes it easy for your ideal clients to say YES!
