Hi… Amira here,

One of the most impactful things I ever heard on my journey to creating financial freedom and an on purpose, highly intentional life was… If you’re not growing, you’re dying.

This one sentence changed my life.

Stop and think about it for a moment. There are no two ways about it. You’re either growing or your dying.

The tricky thing is that dying comes in so many flavors that you’re conditioned to agree with. The most insidious versions are the messages you tell yourself… I don’t have time, I’m all good now, I just want to do xyz for now…

Or… your automatic emotional reactions that say this is the time to be… righteous, frustrated, or disappointed.

Having growth as a value, and living and breathing it on a daily basis, will quantum leap your business and your life… it will make you UNSTOPPABLE…  but you have to take the blinders off and hold yourself to a higher and higher standards of growth.

In order to stay conscious and hold myself to a higher standard, I use a particular question every day… I talk about it in this Facebook live video I made for you on growth:

There are so many versions of stopping. Some are super sneaky and almost barely recognizable because they've become acceptable to you.

I've used this question with my weight, my running, my relationships, my business… ALL THE FREAKIN' TIME with my business… as well as with my mindset.

And the result?

I’ve become UNSTOPPABLE in my life and business. I’ve created more in a few years than most people do in an entire lifetime.

I'm not at all perfect. Perfection is NOT my goal—though my ego might still think so. ;-)

I'm still a beautiful work in progress… and I’m continually going for more every day… because I’m committed to my freedom and to being unstoppable.

Are you?

The Thing About Freedom

By Amira Alvarez Hi, Amira here... Today I want to share with you the importance of being you. It seems so obvious… who else would you be? Yet, the truth is most people squash who they truly are. They try to conform or contort themselves to fit other people’s expectations and be someone…

Hi, Amira here…

Today I want to share with you the importance of being you. It seems so obvious… who else would you be?

Yet, the truth is most people squash who they truly are. They try to conform or contort themselves to fit other people’s expectations and be someone else… in small and large ways.

We learn this young. Don’t be ourselves…. Don’t be fully expressed… Don’t ask for what we want… DON’T ROCK THE BOAT… or we might be rejected.

And because we fear rejection, we cap our self-expression.

Yet, you weren’t put on this earth to be anyone but yourself.

You were put on this earth to be the best expression of yourself that you can be.

You were given a purpose, it is part of YOU, and IF you are capping the expression of your truth you are stopping the full expression of that purpose. No bueno!

In addition, FREEDOM, what so many entrepreneurs crave… isn’t just freedom over their time and schedule, it’s the freedom to truly be themselves… no matter what, fully expressed. Unshackled. Unlimited. Fully themselves. (“You can’t tell me what to do. You can’t tell me what to say.”)

FREEDOM means that nothing stops you from that… including money, what other people say, do, or think, worry, fear, any outside circumstance, or inside state.

The Law of Vibration states you need to be at the frequency of what you want to call it into your life for it to arrive. This is the Law.

If you are in business for yourself and you want FREEDOM, then you need to start being at that frequency… which means that you need to start expressing yourself, more and more fully.

This is essential. You have to move to more and more full expression of yourself… otherwise you will always be trapped. You’ll never get that freedom that you so crave.

When you feel trapped, limited, not free…  this directly affects the speed and extent to which your business grows. Take a look around at really successful businesses run by entrepreneurs… notice how expressed they are. Think Oprah. Think Beyonce. Think Richard Branson. The list goes on.

Today, look for the small and large ways that you contort yourself to fit other people’s expectations. How are you a party to your own limitation? How could be more fully expressed?

The more you express yourself and the truth of who you are, the faster you’ll achieve that freedom you so crave.

Become Unstoppable, Make A Sh*t Ton Of Money

Recently I went on a rant about making a shit-ton of money on Facebook.

Here’s the thing… you've got to WANT it bad enough.

Building a kick-ass business… well, to be frank, it's not for sissies.

There are going to be some serious hurdles. Sometimes, in the beginning, it's every day. Heck, it can be ALL day, EVERY day in the beginning… or even for years if you don't figure things out.

Sometimes those hurdles are “all in your mind”. Sometimes there's misfortune, bad stuff that goes down, things that have you thinking, “why the hell is this happening?” Yes, bad things happen to good people. Being good has nothing to do with it.

What you need to recognize is that you have to want it bad enough.

You have to want it more than any obstacle that you encounter.

And this want?

It has to be so strong that you become unstoppable.

Identifying this is key to unlocking your quantum leap.

For me, this is freedom.

But it's not *just* the pretty, Disney, leaping into sunsets, luxe vacations, and drinking champagne version of freedom. It's not just the ability to decide my own schedule or buy what I want. Those things are great, don't get me wrong. I love them. (And I love sunsets too. No one's knocking sunsets.)

But that's not enough.

There has to be more… otherwise, you stop. You're satisfied with enough. Your mind will say… you have enough, this isn't worth it, this is worth doing whatever it takes.

For me… freedom means… “you can't tell me who the F– I am or what the F– I can do.”

This is the version of freedom that gets me out of bed every morning.  

This is what drives me past the obstacles. This is why I persist and I'm unstoppable. I want that more than I want any comfort of staying the same, which if we're honest, is only a temporary comfort that turns into long term regret.  

Do you feel me? Do you know what I'm talking about? Do you have a desire that runs so deep that it makes you unstoppable?

I hope so.

‘Cause you need it if you're going to make your quantum leap. Comment and tell me… what do you want so badly? What is that desire is for you?

The Biggest Sabotage, Do You Know It?

I want to share a story from The Posse Facebook group that was posted recently. Liberty is also a Business Acceleration Bootcamp member and private client of mine, so she’s deeply immersed in the business mindset work that I teach.

She wrote…

“Just before a 1-1 call with Amira today I had a computer meltdown. I was searching for an answer as to how to update something on my FB page. I went into the FB help site and pushed a link.

I knew as soon as I hit the link I was in trouble. A screen popped up warning of a virus, my computer froze and there was a slew of rapid downloads happening. UH-OH.

I did what I could on my end for damage control, and then quickly contacted a computer team I had met through networking previously. They advised me that I could drop off my computer today, and they would have it back to me in 3-4 business days.

I started to spin out in my mind. “How am I going to work my plan and plan my work without my computer!?! Everything I need is on my computer! How am I going to get on my call with Amira a few minutes via Zoom?” … and on and on I went.

Immediately catastrophizing the temporary loss of my computer.

What did I do? I did something I learned from Amira. I called bullshit on myself!

“That is not the truth!”

“You are resourced and resourceful.”

That was the truth and was quickly confirmed.

Solutions were quickly available for each “catastrophe” I had thus far predicted. With gratitude I can even say the solutions came with ease.

I trust that will continue.

I am finally starting to recognize the ways in which I will quickly grab an opportunity to stop myself. An opportunity that allows me to stay safe and play small.

It wasn't but a few weeks ago I would have argued and justified why the loss of my computer was truly a logical reason to step out of the game for just a moment.

But not this time. This time I am staying in the game.

Why?

Because I am raising my standards on all levels!”

The number one way we stop ourselves from moving forward is by spinning out and believing our own stories!! Stories about lack, limits, fears, and blocks. Stories that stop us.

Do actual, tangible, real world blocks happen? Yes, of course.

Computers break… money falls through… we get sick… life happens.

But how we respond to those blocks is a CHOICE, and Liberty modeled this in action perfectly.

Tell me what you’re feeling blocked and spun out about right now… it’s good to own it! Then tell me what you will CHOOSE to do differently to change the trajectory of your day.

You are powerful! Don’t forget that!

And be sure to join us over in The Posse if you’re not there already!

Today, I want to talk about the truth of who you are.

The truth is… you’re AMAZING. Truly. You are wired to SUCCEED.

We all have spiritual DNA we’re born with, and we either block it out of fear, practicality, or based on internal and external expectations…our conditioning… or we do what we need to do to let it grow.

This spiritual DNA is the seed of our purpose. Now, there are many mixed feelings about the idea of “purpose.”

It’s something we want… but we don’t always understand what it means. We want to know what our work is here on this earth… we want to have meaning and impact in the ways that only we can… but we don’t always know where to start or how to uncover it…

  • So we say we don’t know what our purpose is.
  • So we get frustrated that we haven’t discovered it.
  • So we hem and haw and look the other way.

But the thing is, our purpose is always there and it wants to grow.

The key is to take ACTION… to lean into your “more life” directive, this directive to grow.

How do you do that? You answer and act on the following…

  • What wants to come alive in you and your work?
  • What’s motivating you to move forward in this moment?
  • What’s calling you towards it, even if it doesn’t make sense or seem practical?

Sometimes that’s as simple as… “I want to make money.”

That’s what it was for me… I was guided into the work I do now by honoring the part of me that never wanted to worry about money again. It was by following that Spirit-led nudge (really a big ass kick in the pants) that I discovered the work I was put here to do. But it wasn’t instantaneous.

I had to start where I was and take my first steps from there. I had no idea where exactly this would lead me, but I kept taking the steps.

If you're blocked… if you're not moving forward… if you're struggling in some way and not taking the steps… you're holding onto a pattern of thought, behavior, and a way of being that’s no longer serving you.

You have to start unpacking those beliefs… peeling back the layers, one by one, to reveal what’s beneath it all.

Then lean in. Trust the truth of who you are… amazing, wired for success, brilliant, and talented in exactly the ways that YOU are… and start taking action from there in the direction of MORE LIFE.

It’s through action that we expand and grow… and it’s through this growth that we uncover our purpose. It gets revealed to us.

I have two questions today:

  • Are you willing to keep releasing what no longer works?

The fears… the stories… the beliefs… the patterns of playing small…

  • What are the lies you're telling yourself about yourself?

About your worth… your abilities… what’s ‘realistic’ or possible…

Take some time with these questions and start embracing your truth today.

Reaching Your Revenue Goal By The End Of The Year

By Amira Alvarez It's almost the end of June, which means we're almost done with the first half of this year! Time flies, doesn't it? Despite the fact that time seems to fly by, there's still so much time remaining to create what you set out to create this year... even if you're…

It's almost the end of June, which means we're almost done with the first half of this year!

Time flies, doesn't it? Despite the fact that time seems to fly by, there's still so much time remaining to create what you set out to create this year… even if you're “behind” on reaching or meeting the goals you set for yourself six months ago.

But you have to be willing to take a real, honest look at where you’re at… you have to be willing to be real and honest about what’s working and what’s not… whether that’s with your team, your systems, your packages and offerings, or in how you’re showing up (or not) as a leader.

It’s not about feeling bad or getting frustrated… that just derails our progress even more. Resentment is a STOP SIGN to the Universe, and that’s not where we want to spend our time!

It’s about gathering the necessary information in order to course correct as needed to reach your goals. That’s it… it’s just information and insight to work with.

Today I invite you to take a look at your original goals for this year… where you’re at currently and where you want to go… as well as what is and is not working.

  • Revenue: What were the revenue goals you set at the beginning of the year? What do you need to make in the next six months in order to reach that goal?
  • Packaging: Do the product and services you currently offer SUPPORT you in reaching that goal? Do you need to change your packaging or raise your pricing? Do you need to rework your marketing, messaging, and position to attract higher end clients?
  • Team: Does the team you currently have support you in reaching this goal? Are they making things easier, or are they slowing things down? What training do they need to better support you for the remainder of the year? Where do you need to hire or bring on an expert to be more effective in what you’re doing? Where do you need to create a position to take more off your plate so you can focus on your genius?
  • Systems: Where have the biggest points of frustration, tension, or failure been happening in your business? What systems need to be put in place to eliminate these things completely? What are you or your team spending time doing more than once? What tools are needed to automate more of your processes? What systems could be implemented to improve your client/customer experience?
  • Leadership: Where do you need to take more ownership of what isn’t happening? As business owners, we are always first cause on the physical plane… which means we’re always at cause for what is and is not happening. Where do you need to take more ownership so that you can really move the needle forward in your business?

It’s not enough to just answer these questions… you have to take this information and actually implement changes in how you show up, how your team operates, and how you run your business. You have to FOCUS on what really has an impact on your ability to scale and grow.

No more excuses… no more spinning your wheels… no more distractions. Activate the Law of Personal Responsibility.
