I've got big dreams, big things I want to accomplish. (I bet you do too.)
As I was building my businesses, to accomplish what I wanted to accomplish, I threw my energy (almost all of it) into my businesses. That was my pattern. Throw everything at it. Heart, soul, and effort… lots of effort.
I was driven and ambitious, traits that have both served me well and have their shadow side.
The shadow side to the power of action and effort is struggle.
It's the “hard” that comes from confusion, overwhelm, and fear.
It's that feeling of panic inside when you know you've completely lost your way but think your only option is to work harder. Or the sinking feeling of knowing you're not doing what you need to be doing, yet not knowing how to get out of your own way…so you best keep moving.
I'd be seduced by the momentary sense of accomplishment when I'd finished a project or land a sale. I'd get my “feel good accomplishment hit” and it was enough to keep me going.
But ultimately I ended up in the same place, on the same hamster wheel of never enough… which is a terrible place to be, yet is where many us find ourselves, over and over again, in our pursuit of significant growth in our business.
I realized something had to change. I realized that I was sacrificing my inner peace in little and big ways, for the hope of a big payoff or ease later.
I lived out the same patterns over and over again. I was addicted to hard, to the idea that to get ahead and make significant money, it had to be a struggle. (This is what I grew up thinking. This is what I knew.)
I knew consciously that that wasn't the case BUT my reality showed something different.
My reality showed a lot of really good things AND a lot of struggle. If I'm honest, there was not nearly enough of that heart pumping happiness in my life yet I had no idea what I was missing.
I didn't want to work that way anymore. I wanted to have a fuller life, with more connection, more of what was important to me. I made a decision to change.
I went on a journey to discover how to create an easier business. I sought out business advice and followed it and in lots of ways this worked. The techniques and strategies helped tremendously.
Yet there was still something off. Things still felt hard.
That is until… I was able to master the inner game of entrepreneurship. That was the TIPPING POINT for me.
Only when I figured out how to EFFECTIVELY and CONSISTENTLY manage my mindset (beliefs, fears, and anxiety) was I able to truly put into play the business tactics and strategies required to grow my business with ease.
This was a revelation and a revolution.
It has allowed me creative license, freedom, money, ease, great relationships, and a business I love. Everyday.
It has allowed me to triple my income in one year.
Do you want this too?
