Creating Time in Your Business

By Amira Alvarez We have time for everything we want to do. If you're overwhelmed with all your projects and tasks... If you're running around panicked that you're going to drop the ball... If you're stressed with too many obligations... Listen up. Yes, we all have the same 24 hours in the day.…

We have time for everything we want to do.

If you're overwhelmed with all your projects and tasks…

If you're running around panicked that you're going to drop the ball…

If you're stressed with too many obligations…

Listen up.

Yes, we all have the same 24 hours in the day. Time is time. There's no getting around that on the material plane.

How do you create more time for yourself?

I'll give you the answer right away.

You make DECISIONS.

By making a choice, you clear the noise in your head and you stop wasting your precious energy spinning out about not getting everything done.

Your energy is precious. Stop wasting it on beating yourself and feeling bad about your capacity and things left undone.

This is a total and utter waste of your creative capacity. This is what makes you feel like you have no time.

Once you CHOOSE, you close that energy leak and you're off to the races.

You can then jam on all your projects and you get more done, in the same 24-hours, because you're not slowed down by indecision, doubt, recrimination, etc.

You actualize your power through your decisions. Start making them.

Thinking traps that cause struggle

By Amira Alvarez Let's start with the premise that love, joy, peace, happiness, wholeness is our natural state. What gets in the way? Why do we not experience this more of the time or all of the time... especially in running our business? Our own thoughts. The dualistic mind. The ego voice. Any…

Let's start with the premise that love, joy, peace, happiness, wholeness is our natural state.

What gets in the way? Why do we not experience this more of the time or all of the time… especially in running our business?

Our own thoughts. The dualistic mind. The ego voice.

Any time you're not in a state of joy, you are thinking a thought that separates you from your true Self, brings you down, adds to the misery.

I realize that's a high bar, yet it's the truth. This is one of those things that is black and white, where there is no compromise.

Yet, given how much of the time we spend in “not joy,” it's obvious that we spend a lot of time thinking in ways that bring us down, that “throw us out of heaven.”

Yet, for years, we have kept thinking these subtle and not so subtle thoughts that attack us.

“Do more.”

“Not good enough.”

“That wasn't good.”

We give these thoughts license to speak to us under the premise of helping us be better, get it right, and feel good… yet all they do is bring us down.

They are not helping, yet they have fooled us into thinking that they are.

Instead, recognize them for what they are… traps. Traps that cause struggle in your business.

Instead, notice how you're feeling and use that as a guide as to whether the thought is freeing or a trap.

Feeling joy? Keep that thought.

Feeling “non joy”? Release that thought.

Choosing is your birthright. Use it.

Wondering where your clients are?

By Amira Alvarez Where are your clients? Where are your customers? How do you find them? Are you asking these questions? Want to know where they are? Want to know how to find them? Tired of the "go where your clients are" type of advice? Then listen up... Your clients are everywhere. You're…

Where are your clients?

Where are your customers?

How do you find them?

Are you asking these questions?

Want to know where they are? Want to know how to find them?

Tired of the “go where your clients are” type of advice? Then listen up…

Your clients are everywhere. You're just not seeing them. Your brain is being myopic.

Undoing that starts with a paradigm shift.

I had mine quite recently actually…

I was at a conference in Chicago, at one of those mega convention centers. I had joined my husband for the weekend as he attended a real estate investment bootcamp.

This wasn't the first of these that we had gone to. Each time we go to attend a training on a different topic, there are several hundred people in the session. There are usually 5-6 of these sessions being held at the same time. Which means that this company who puts on these trainings has drawn over a thousand people to each event.

There's an event every month. Not everyone in the program attends each event. In fact the majority don't. Which means that this company has thousands upon thousands of customers and is consistently growing.

But this wasn't the only conference happening at the mega-convention center.

There was some sort of electrical engineer conference, but it was more specific than that. It was an incredibly specific subset of that field. I don't remember exactly, but I do remember thinking… “wow, that's a pretty narrow field.” And guess what?

There were hundreds, maybe thousands of them too. Yup. Loads of these folks.

And these weren't the only two conferences happening there. There were more groups with more people.

People everywhere.

And the people represented at this conference center are only a very small (infinitesimal) subset of each of these company's target audience.

Or think of Disneyland. If you've been there you know it's packed. There are many thousands upon thousands of people there every day. EVERY DAY. And this is only a small subset of their potential customers. No shortage.

Or you go to a concert. Tons of people.

What I'm saying is your customers are plentiful. You're just not seeing them.

This in turn means that they don't see you.

If you don't *believe* they are there, you are cutting yourself off from them.

If you are saying some version of “no one will pay for this here” in my small town, my overly competitive big city, my country, my culture… you are being myopic.

If you are saying some version of “no one will pay for this” or “no one will pay such high fees”… you are being myopic.

If you are saying some version of “it's hard to find customers”… you are being myopic.

People are everywhere. Your people. Tons of them. You've got to see them and claim them.

The solution to “customer acquisition issues” begins in your mind. Start seeing your customers everywhere.

Walking down the street, in the grocery store, driving that car, in the movie theater… SEE THEM.

Recognize that they are everywhere, abundant, and plentiful. Open your mind to this and keep it present.

Your customers are waiting for you to recognize them. This is your job.

It’s bad business to have a so-so love relationship – here’s why.

By Amira Alvarez You may want to compartmentalize your business and your primary love relationship.

You may want to compartmentalize your business and your primary love relationship.

You may want to separate them and see them as completely separate entities that don't impact each other.

You may even dive into your business as a way to escape your relationship issues.

But this usually comes back to bite you.

You see… all of this “management” (and yes, ignoring this issue is a type of management) is using up precious energy… this is energy that you could be putting toward creating what you truly desire in your life and your business.

If your relationship is falling apart, or even just slightly irritating, unsatisfying, or blah… it drains you of energy.

This is energy you could be putting toward your business or the other passions in your life. This is a total waste, not to mention heart breaking in the relationship department.

I've spent many a coaching call helping powerful, brilliant, soulful women align in the relationship department so they can show up full out in their business. It's so critical to your success and happiness. You have to approach healing relationships in a revolutionary way.

How will you approach your relationships (love, friendships, business) from now on?

Inner Energy

Wanting to be successful? That's just another name for wanting what's already yours. What's getting in your way?

Do you know where your freedom lies?

Business doesn't have to be a struggle or hard. You can make it that way, of course. But why would you when it can be so much easier?

This is what I love to teach people. And when they “get it” there's a huge healing.

Both of my grandmothers were healers. I'm finally getting that in addition to being a teacher and a coach, I'm a healer. Of the spirit. It's part of my lineage, though I've had to come to it on my own.

So many of my clients have said, “it's like inner energy surgery” or “Spiritual surgery” and it's true. And now I need to own that fully.

The healing is what allows for the ease in creating the outer world success, the doubling or tripling of your income, the more clients, more cash, all of that.

This is what I facilitate and what I am now claiming more fully.

Feels amazing.
