The Red Carpet Show
Yesterday, my coach and I were talking about social media and he said,
“everyone plays by the unwritten rules about what they “should” say. Particularly when it comes to business and be truthful about income. It’s all a Red Carpet Show. Everybody puts on their best outfits, makeup, hair-do, and they're showing you the best of what they are. No one is really coming out and telling the truth”.
So let’s roll up that red carpet and put our feet firmly on the concrete. Let’s keep it real.
If you are not making “enough” money
You know that you are not alone. I’m not making the figures I want to yet (more on this a bit later). I would hazard a guess that most small businesses owners, particularly soulpreneurs,...
I’m putting my fingers up to the “red carpet show” and spending more time on my sanity mat.
I woke up this morning and immediately felt triggered!. I’d scheduled the day to record my YouTube videos and quite frankly, I didn’t want to “put on my face”, get dressed up and sit up in my studio in front of the camera. I tried talking myself “in to it”, using all my own tools and techniques to shift the energy and mindset but I kept coming back to the same answer. Don’t want to do it. It was like trying to reason with a 6 year old (and this is exactly what was happening.. I’ll explain more in a bit).
Stage right.. my coach
Thank goodness we had a call scheduled this morning. Amongst other things, we ended up talking about...
You need to stop focusing on the goal. You have to take your eyes off of the outcome.
No I haven't gone crazy. I know it seems to make little sense that as High Performance Coach would be asking you NOT to focus on the goal. But stay with me.
Let’s start with a story. I’m currently doing running training and on my route is a very gentle but long “hill”. When I’m running it, if I keep looking toward the end it’s difficult not to think about how far I still have to go. How heavy my legs are and my breathing is laboured. Every step is a challenge and I want to quit.
Yet, when I keep my head down, watching my feet going one in front of the other and repeating, “I can, I am, I’m a winner…” – guess what happens? It’s easier and the end arrives quicker.
Focusing on the outcome can make your journey a lot harder. Today I have FOUR reasons why you need to switch your focus from the goal, to the...
One of the best or most freeing things you can do to create success on your terms is to really listen to your body and do what you need, not what everybody else is telling you.
Today I have THREE simple steps that you can take daily, to manage your energy and vibrancy so that you don’t sacrifice your emotional and physical health on your journey to success.
The first thing that you have to do is you have to schedule in your time first. You don't get to put yourself last on the list. You don't get to say, “ if I have time I work out or I'll go and take a walk or I'll do my yoga, or I'll take my Epsom salt bath”. You schedule all of those things in first.
Anything that regenerates or energizes you; that feeds you physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually – it goes in your schedule FIRST.
Step number two is all about movement. I'm not talking about exercise. I'm talking about changing your physical state. When we get stuck in...
How many times have you not followed your gut and then regretted it? How many times have you made up your mind about something and then changed it because someone else persuaded you to do something different?
In this episode I'm talking to you about how you can create just the right mix between logic and intuition to help you grow your business. There is both a space and necessity to have both. We can't just go by intuition all the time, because we need the logic to build up the system.
But oftentimes we're so driven by logic that we shut off those emotional cues that give us the best answer. Today, I want to deliver three key concepts to you, and then give you a simple thing that you can do to start creating this right magical mix for you.
Where you live, is it logical for you to drive on the left-hand side of the road? In your culture, is it logical for women to lay down whilst they give birth? Is it natural and enjoyable and logical for you to eat your chips with gravy?...
Guess what? You don't need a five year plan to succeed. You don't even need a 90 day goal to succeed. You need to be productive every day. And to do that, I want to encourage you to try my "21 Day Productivity Sprint". It's a total mindset shift and I really think it will transform the way you work.
This is episode number 18 of the Your Rich Life Podcast and I'm talking about why you don't need that long term plan.
Plus I’m going to teach you the “21 day sprint” that will help you get more results, in less time
Do smart goals really turn you off?
Do you find yourself switching off and running for the hills when you think about 90 day goal setting or the big 5 year plan? That was how I felt when I started out in business and I made myself believe it was because I was useless and that running a business was clearly “for somebody else”.
I want you to be open to giving yourself permission to set a different pace, if it serves you. If you...
Most of us are not “born” to do anything but we are all born with the potential for greatness.
When I was out running yesterday, I realised there are 3 Reasons Why Your Exercise Regime Is the Same As Building a Business.
Learning to Control The Head Talk
This is the most challenging part of any stretch goal. When you’re working out and your legs are heavy, your lungs are burning and breathing is a challenge, you don’t want to go on. What gets you through is a conversation that you're have in your head.
Normally I’m really good at that but I’ve been struggling with anxiety recently (current global energy is having a huge, unconscious, impact on me!). This effects of the anxiety are most noticeable when I’m working out because my heart raise rises and my brain “assumes” I’m in an anxious state.
So, before the awareness kicked in, I found myself saying “I'm just not a born runner. I'm not born for running”.
How are you coping with the global energy right now? Are you finding it really hard to maintain a positive and optimistic mindset? Are you struggling with energy and mood swings?
Well, I hear you. And today on the High Performance Mastery series we’re talking ENERGY. In particular, how you can maintain energy, regardless of what's going on, and how you might need to navigate it differently, so that you don't drown in everyone elses negativity.
Energy impacts everything from the way that we think, look, move, feel and act. And our actions create our results. And right, now, if like me, you are very energetically “attuned”, this global energy is super challenging.
I don't want you beating up on yourself if you are struggling to maintain your regular upbeat mindset. I have been learning and teaching this stuff for decades, and I’m still struggling. So if the concept of energy,...
Have you made a decision or have you committed? There is a big difference. Only one is going to take you to the success that you desire.
Every week I do a Q&A with my mastermind members and I ask them ahead of time, “what is it that you particularly want to work on?”. One replied “I'm just really tired of my decision disappearing”. I asked her to expand to which you replied, “Well, you know, I'm aware that I'm trying to stay my vibrational alignment. And I'm trying to act like the seven figure CEO. I make that powerful decision and then.. it just disappears”.
How do you know the decision has disappeared?
I asked her how she knew that. She said she didn’t know. So I asked her a different way, this is something you can do to.
If you made a decision to say, lose weight, move house, run a marathon, swim a lake, how would you know that the decision was still there? If I was watching you, how would I know that you've made a...
As a human being, we all have an innate drive and desire for connection. So what happens when, in pursuit of building your dream business, you lose connection with the things that really matter.
There is no denying that there is a palpable feeling of losing connection in the world right now. Social distancing, lack of hug and in person meetings - I'm sure I'm not the only one who is somehow feeling that something is missing.
I want to share with you in this short episode, some of the things that I see happening with business owners and levels of connection, the problems that are coming from that, and what can we do to start deepening the connection that we have in our life.
Connection isn't just about connection with others. It's about a drive to feel connected with a deeper and more truthful part of ourselves. It's the connection with a mission, a purpose. A connection with a bigger energy of God or Universe or something. It's something bigger than us...
