The Movement Toward Greater Authenticity & Purpose in Business

Is what once worked no longer working? Do you find it hard to do simple business activities you used to do easily before? Does the way you do business no longer feel right, as though something is off?

There is a major movement happening in the world right now. This movement is one that is toward purpose and authenticity.

At a deep level we are being called to let go of things that are no longer congruent. Ways of being, ways of doing things, ways of operating in business that don’t match your truest self are being called to be brought into alignment or dropped.

This isn’t an enjoyable process if you don’t realize what is really happening. It can look like the old ways of marketing or selling no longer creating the results they used to, sales may be dropping. It can create a lot of stress.

If this is happening for you then you’re not alone. It’s happening for a lot of people right now, at all levels of business.

We are being called to a greater expression of who we are and of our purpose.

Business models or systems that don’t allow the full expression of who we are will stop working or it will take an exhausting amount of effort to keep them going.

Systems that restrict your essence, your truth, your fullest expression of who we are must be updated and revised to be brought into alignment with our truth.

Right now more than ever is the time to delve into discovery. We are in a time of discovery, of exploration of what is true and congruent and what is not, of seeing the truth clearly.

It’s not a time of spontaneous major changes, there’s no need to take unnecessary risks. This cycle takes time to delve into. Give some space in your day to reflect.  Open to new possibilities even if you’re not yet sure what form they’ll take.

Begin now, open your mind for a moment and reflect on or write out: What still works well for me in my business? What feels good? What doesn’t feel good? What feels way off? What no longer feels tolerable? What part of me still longs to be expressed or given a place in my business?  What do I feel like I’m missing in my business?

Please share what resonates from this article and what you’ve noticed hasn’t been working as it used to, or what you feel called to incorporate more of to be more congruent in your business.  You’re not alone on this journey, many are in it. Humanity is in a cycle of completion and ending old patterns and ways of being that no longer serve. Benefits come when the truth is faced and we open our minds to what is congruent for us.

5 Simple Steps to Shift Out of Doubt

I’ve been seeing more and more lately that a MAJOR issue facing Holistic Practitioners in their business is doubt. Do you face doubt often? Doubt in yourself, in your ability to make a difference in your client’s lives? In your worth? It’s time to take a deeper look at what doubt is costing you and to learn how to quickly shift out of doubt.

So just what is the impact of doubt in your business?

I’ve seen it so many times, no matter what causes the doubt, the effect of doubt is the same. When a Holistic Practitioner faces doubt, doubt in themselves, their worth, their ability to help their clients, doubt in their purpose and if they should even be doing this work something happens.

They stop.

They stop taking action. They stop and question EVERYTHING! Or they stop and just do nothing. Either way, their foot is on the brakes of their business.

What happens next?

Their energy says STOP, so what do you think begins to happen in their business?

New clients rushing in? Nope.

New opportunities to get their work out? Nope.

Taking whatever action is needed to attract more clients? Nope.

If your energy says STOP, everything begins to come to a halt. Not only that but the clients you do have, the clients you are a light in the dark for feel it too. The light is out or very dim. The reason they signed on with you in the first place, the energy space they needed you to hold for them is gone. They feel it, you feel it and this only gets worse.

It’s 2012. Now is the time to step up to your purpose in faith. Now more than ever what you have is needed in the world. You are a lighthouse, a light in the dark for your clients.

And they need your light ON. They need you to keep your foot on the gas in your business, to keep moving forward so your light stays on for them.

There are many factors that contribute to doubt continuing to arise in your business. Too many to get into here, but I’d like to share with you a very powerful and simple 5 step process to shift out of doubt within minutes.

I’ve used this myself and every time I shift out of doubt and into belief. Getting out of doubt is not a one time thing. It’s like a bad habit that must be broken. So I recommend printing this out and having it beside your desk so you can keep your foot on the gas in your business and keep the light shining for those you’re meant to shine it for.

Here we go!

Step 1: Get Your Thoughts and Feelings OUT

Step 1 is all about getting all of those circling thoughts and feelings out of your mind and onto the page. In this step you write for as long as you like, until you feel you’ve gotten most of the thoughts and feelings out around what’s going on for you.

I know you’ve probably heard you’re not supposed to focus on the negative, that’s not what you’re doing here. These thoughts and feelings are already going on WITHIN you, might as well get them out!

Step 2: Ask yourself, is my focus on me or those I’m meant to help?

If you look at what you wrote in step 1, you’ll likely see that your focus is all on YOU. This is a major problem because it AMPLIFIES any doubt you are experiencing. Recognize that you are feeding the doubt by focusing on yourself and proceed to step 3.

Step 3: What pain, problems or challenges are your clients facing?

Here you begin to shift the focus off of you and onto the people you’re meant to help. Write all about what your clients or potential clients are facing right now in their lives. The problems you can help them with. Write as much as you can, really put yourself in your clients’ shoes and connect with what they are experiencing that you could help them out of.

Step 3 is where you take your foot off of the brake energetically.

Step 4: Why are YOU the one to help them?

Write all you can think of about why YOU are the person to help your clients or potential clients. What life experience do you have that relates to what they’re going through? Have you been where they are and gotten out of it? What do you know that could help them? What training and experience do you have that can help them? Why are YOU the one to help them?

Spend as much time as you can here, at step 4, energetically you are putting your foot on the gas. Your confidence and faith goes up with this important step, which is exactly what you need to get out of doubt and brakes on and back into faith and foot on the gas.

Step 5: Affirm “I Choose To Trust”

After your foot has been placed back on the gas where it belongs, it helps to remind yourself that God, the Universe is backing you. Remind yourself that you’ve been drawn to create this business for a reason, that you ARE meant to be doing this work, that your path is guided.

I love the affirmation “I choose to trust” because many times trust is a choice. You can’t wait until you trust 100% to be successful in business. Being in business is an act of faith in itself.

Now that you’re back into the energy of faith, what action can you take right now?

Get going on it! Keep your light shining! And come back to the 5 steps any time you need to, any time you find yourself in doubt.

Why 80% of Small Businesses Fail (And How To Avoid This In Your Business!)

Do you ever wonder if you’ll ever succeed getting your business going?  Like you’ve put out endless effort to grow your business but it just isn’t happening yet?

I’d love to share with you a secret that you have likely heard before but one that is SO important.  A quote I read this morning sums it up pretty good:

There seems to be a door on the way to remarkable success that can be passed through only by those willing to persevere beyond the point where the majority stop and turn back  ~ Earl Nightingale

I’ve read recently that something like 80% of businesses fail within the first 3 years.

This is sad to me because often these same failures could have been huge successes, if they had just kept going.

How do I know?  Let me share a bit of a story about my own business.

At the 3 year mark, I made something like $8,600 in my entire third year of business.  So obviously things were not looking up, that’s a heck of a lot of effort put into something that didn’t appear to be working.

Here’s the thing.

If I would have quit then, I would be with the other 80% who failed in the first 3 years of business.

But that’s not what happened.

Within the first 5 months of that next year, I more than tripled my sales.  And my business has been growing at a rapid pace ever since, all of this even in spite of going through a recession in that time.

Why do I share this with you?

A couple of reasons.

I get frustrated when some business mentors paint a picture only of the success and forget to mention the truth about what it can be like to get there.  You see that rosy picture, then you look at your business which is miles away from that picture, and you feel discouraged because YOU can’t seem to get there.

And the other reason goes back to this, I’m not really sure failure is the right word.  I’d say most often failure is what happens when you give up too soon.

I could have been a failure but instead, I kept going.  I didn’t give up.  I got help.  I did whatever it took to find the way to succeed.  I didn’t stop until I found the way.

Because the way is there.

And I’m glad I didn’t give up.  If I gave up, not only would I not be living this life that is totally incredible to me, based in freedom, passion and authenticity inside and out. But all of the clients I have helped free themselves to live their purpose could still be stuck.  And that is sad.

You have an important purpose, your work, your wisdom, your gifts, your energy ARE needed in the world.  Right now.

So do you have to wait until year 3 to take off in your business?  I don’t think so.  The energy in the planet right now supports your success.  I watch how quickly things move with my clients and I am amazed.  The time is now.

If you don’t want to wait forever, I suggest you take a shortcut, and the only one I know is to find someone who is ahead of you on the path, who knows the shortcuts, who has been where you are and has gotten out of it and to learn from them how to speed up your path.

There are plenty of great mentors out there, I’ve learned from many myself, but I do recommend making sure that the person is fully aligned with you, is similar enough to you that they can understand your challenges and really know how to get YOU from where you are to where you want to be.

It’s time step up and shine!

There are even more secrets to growing your business faster, particularly as a Holistic Practitioner or healer as you likely have unique challenges that most business mentors have no clue about.  I’d love to share more with you at my upcoming FREE workshop:

Grow Your Holistic Business Faster! Avoid the 3 Massive Mistakes Most Holistic Practitioners Make That Stop Them From Making The Money They Desire & Deserve.

This workshop takes place in New York City September 10th, Edmonton September 15th, Calgary September 20th and Vancouver October 19th.

https://fearlessfaith.ca/GYHB

Do whatever it takes to be there, this could be THE turning point in your business.  It’s time to step up and shine.  Your people need exactly what it is that you have but, if you’re not succeeding in your business, that means they can’t find you.

Are You Stepping Up To Your Purpose Or Stuck In Doubt?

Do you sometimes get discouraged by the lack of results you see in your business?  Knowing on some level that you are meant to do this work,  you felt called to start your business, yet where the heck are the results?

Here is a special message for you that I was guided to share with you:

Dear one you are shaking and nervous about your work, about your ability to deliver it and to live a great life that involves your business being your means of income.  The results of your efforts may seem small, perhaps you face disappointment after disappointment.

What is really happening here?

Did you ever stop to think that you were perhaps not doing something wrong, that everything that is happening is happening to both strengthen a key energy within you of faith and to also show you the way to this life you envision?

You often face feelings of doubt.  When you have doubt in yourself, your abilities, your worth, your message, your program you are sending out a conflicting message to the Universe.  You say you are ready, you take actions, but your energy says otherwise.

With this conflict in your energy, you can not create powerful results.

It is most important to resolve this doubt.  For until you do, you will have the brakes on.  With doubt, you will never be able to create the most results, they will always be minimized and reduced because your energy is restricted.  It doesn’t match the success you envision.

You may fear stepping fully into belief because what would happen if you believed and were then disappointed?  What if you were to look like a failure?  So rather than face this possibility, you back down and sink into doubt.

Doubt is safer.  With doubt you are allowing yourself to choose to be small. 

What might shift in your business if you stopped doubting yourself?  If you chose to TRUST and act as though success were guaranteed?

I’ll tell you what would happen, you would be sending a powerful message to the Universe that you are no longer holding back and letting your small self run the show.  You would begin to attract at an entirely new level, and you would attract THE WAY to actually create the results you envision if you were able to hold onto trust instead of doubt.

Would the results you create change immediately?  Maybe not.

You don’t know what you don’t know and you may need to learn new skills for example to help you become the person who can create those results.  Energy alone does not create your reality because you live in a physical world.

But energy is the foundation, if you’re stuck in doubt, no action can help you.  If you’re choosing to trust and take action on that trust, then the way begins to be activated.

The way may involve people, programs, ideas, mentors, books coming your way to help you get the skills and knowledge you need to translate your vision of what success looks like for you into physical reality.

Let go of attachment to results, there is no failure anyway, just learning.  And you will learn WAY more if you choose to trust and step up.  And you won’t learn much if you don’t step up, if you choose to let doubt rule you and keep you small.

The world needs your gifts.  The world needs your confidence, your belief, your energy.  The world needs your example of faith in action and of what is truly possible when you step up bravely for what is in your heart.

We leave you with this:

Most of the world hides out, most of the world does not take charge of their destiny.  It may feel uncomfortable for you to do it a new way.  But that discomfort is the very thing that shows you that you’re on track. 

That you’re riding the wave toward your new future.  Comfort is a signal you are choosing to stay small.  Be willing to be uncomfortable, be willing to be brave, to step up, to shine your light to the world in the way only you can.

You won’t see just how much incredible help and support there is, just for you, to help you get there until you do.

What have you been avoiding?  What have you been afraid to try in case you might fail?  Can you allow yourself to be willing to step up, to show up and take the new steps that you have avoided in the past?  Can you be willing to get on the bike for the first time, to fall once or twice so you can finally learn?  So you can create a new reality for yourself?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Back to Fia-Lynn:

Be willing to be brave, be willing to step up.  I’ve done this countless times in my business only to see absolutely incredible things happening.  My sales tripling or doubling, the way showing up for me just as I chose to step up.

The funny thing is, you can’t see it until you step up.  The Universe won’t show you the way until you say yes and take the actions that show you believe you will succeed.

Take a moment right now to identify something you’ve been avoiding, an action, big or small that you could take right now to show the Universe you’re ready to step up, you’re ready to trust.  And take it!  Be willing to be uncomfortable and you’ll grow your business faster than you can imagine.

It’s your time to shine.  Show that you believe it.

This is the foundation of Fearless Faith, the energy that has allowed me to feel 100% supported every step of the way on my journey.  Whether I was freaked out or not, knowing that I am being guided to grow my business quickly.

There are many more keys to growing your business, I’ve shared a powerful one here, and I’m excited to be sharing much more, including how to immediately shift out of doubt so you can stay in the energy of trust and faith.

The Secret Link Between Love And Money

Could your love life be impacting your sales?  If you’re in an unsupportive relationship or have been in the past and are single now, it may be impacting you more than you realize.

I remember back when I started my business that it was not exactly the ideal time in a logical sense.  I had just moved into a brand new house that I had built and I had just been laid off of my Engineering job.

To those around me, I must have seemed crazy, but what I knew was that I was being guided, that it WAS time I start my business.  There were signs and even when I just looked at the Engineering job postings, everything in me said NO!!!

That first year was hard.  Trying so much to build my business but by the end of that year I had to admit that I needed another source of income and sadly returned to my Engineering career.

I felt like a failure.  I knew so much about the Law of Attraction and manifesting, why couldn’t I succeed?

My business grew over the next couple of years but still was not anywhere near able to support me financially.  I was SO frustrated!  What was I doing wrong?!

Can you relate?

I was trying SO hard, doing all I could, not realizing that my not-so-supportive relationship was secretly holding back major sales growth in my business.

Now I do not blame anyone for anything, my life is my creation as is yours.  But what I know now is this:

Your relationship is a mirror of you.

And if you do not feel supported in your relationship, it says something very important about YOU.  It says that you are on your own.  You are independent, maybe even a fighter.  And most importantly, it says that you CAN’T or DON’T allow support.

So what? Isn’t it good to be so independent?  A make-it-happen kind of woman?

In a word, no.  It is not a good thing for one VERY important reason that you need to get if you are ever going to take your business to the place where it supports you financially.

You can’t create a successful business alone.  And you’re not meant to.

You will need to learn from those ahead of you on the path.  And even if you could learn it all on your own, it would not be possible for you to find the exact right information because you are closed off to the most important thing on this path.

The support of the Universe.

If you are going at it alone, if you are fighting to build your business, your energy says one thing:  I don’t need support.

And that is just not true.

Maybe that’s hard to hear but I know without a doubt that I did not create my success alone.  I believed when there was no evidence saying I should.  I trusted in the Universe to guide the way.  I trusted that there was a way.

BUT my business did not change until the dynamics in my relationship changed.  That relationship was not capable of being supportive, it was not for my highest good and I can see that looking back that I had to leave it to get here.  And it wasn’t until I let go of what was unsupportive that I was finally able to allow the support of my business growing.

Immediately, I attracted an incredible program and mentor, the exact support I needed to create a MAJOR increase in my sales, within just a few months.  And to end up with a 322% increase in sales over the previous year.

This whole go at it alone thing is so common among Holistic Practitioners, particularly women and it has got to go.

The Universe has SO much love for you.  It not only WANTS you to succeed but has the way for you to do that.  If you let yourself be supported.

Open the door right now.  Even if you don’t know how to allow support, I challenge you to close your eyes after you read this and to go within and if you feel ready declare to yourself and the Universe:  I am willing to open to support, show me the way.

The REAL Reason You’re Stuck in Your Business (It’s Not What You Think It Is)

You’re stuck in your business.  You’ve been trying to get your business going for months, maybe even years and you just can’t seem to make the money you know you should be.

Does this sound familiar to you?

You know there are deeper issues at play, every time you have a big light bulb moment you think THIS is the reason I have been stuck!  I’ve figured it out once and for all.

And then what happens?

You feel better for a day or so then reality sinks in and it hasn’t changed at all. Well maybe you feel better but you’re not making any more money, you have no more clients than you did the week before.

So what happened here?

I see this all of the time.  Many of my clients already know how to heal using different modalities.  They feel like they SHOULD be able to know how to heal themselves and that they should be able to figure out what’s keeping them stuck and just heal it.

Sound familiar?

I’ve found more often than not that you’re rarely ever stuck for the reason you think you are.  And in a lot of cases the healing you are doing isn’t getting to the deepest issue that’s causing your REALITY to be stuck.

That’s why you can come up against issue after issue, resolving each one as you go and STILL be stuck in your business.

Here are 3 tips to help you get to the root of WHAT is really holding you back in your business:

Tip #1: It’s not just a belief in your way

There are many wonderful tools and modalities that will help you heal beliefs.  These tools are powerful and can be life-changing and I use them myself when I KNOW it’s just a belief in the way.  But if you are REALLY stuck in your business, there is far more to it.  That’s why you can heal belief after belief and not have the reality change.  Why?

The bigger and deeply rooted ENERGY dynamic within you hasn’t changed.  And beliefs are just a small part of that energy dynamic.

If you have changed the reality in your business (the amount of money coming in) just from changing beliefs alone then that’s great, no need to read on!  But if you feel you’ve tried to heal your beliefs endlessly and you’re STILL stuck then the issue is more complex, which leads us to Tip #2.

Tip #2: What’s the story?

I’ve found the energies that keep entrepreneurs stuck in their business are a lot more like a story.  There’s a plot, there are characters, dangers and consequences.

And it tends to play out repeatedly.

Become more aware of your business and yourself in it from an outsiders perspective and you will gain far more insight into what’s really going on at a deeper level in your business.

The story of what’s happening in your business has likely been playing out your whole life (or even for lifetimes). If you can recognize the story you’re one step closer to being free of the old story and able to create a new, more abundant and successful one.

This detective work can be fun, but it can also take a lot of time.  Being a Capricorn, I like efficiency and I’m sure you would rather have your business thriving in a shorter time, so this brings us to Tip #3.

Tip #3: Your intuition knows

If you’re like the clients I’ve coached over the years you likely feel sort of powerless and frustrated when it comes to getting your business going.  It feels bigger than you and at times maybe you wonder if you’ll ever be able to get it going.

But let me tell you something important.  You are WAY more powerful than you realize. You are fully capable of succeeding in your business and attracting all that you need in order to help you do just that.

In fact, you actually have the ability to pinpoint EXACTLY what is keeping you stuck in your business.  It’s a skill you can cultivate.

That’s exactly what my clients do.  I help them at first by using my intuition to pinpoint exactly what’s keeping them stuck.  And then they go on to do this for themselves and are often amazed at how simple this can be and that they can actually do it for themselves.

It doesn’t have to be a mystery.  Your intuition knows the way.  If you really want to accelerate the growth of your business then you want to use your intuition as a shortcut.

Tired of trying to figure out what’s holding you back in your business?  Of thinking you’ve got it and watching as nothing changes in your business and no more money comes in?

I’d love to help you out with that.  How would you like to have me tune in intuitively to pinpoint the biggest energetic blocks within you that are playing out in your business? So you’re no longer guessing and wondering, you know EXACTLY why you are stuck.

Right now I’ve opened up a limited number of spaces for complimentary Intuitive Business Assessments that will help you do just that.  I will help identify what’s keeping you stuck and unable to grow your business at both a practical level and at the deepest level energetically.

You’ll leave the call feeling clear and inspired, feeling relieved that it’s no longer a mystery anymore.

But there are a limited number of spaces available and you have to apply to be considered.

3 Signs You’re Secretly Pushing Away Potential Clients and Sales

Are you often disappointed with the number of sign ups into your programs or classes?  Do you think there could be something IN you that is sabotaging your success without you knowing?  So much of what is happening in your business as a spiritual entrepreneur is impacted by what is happening below the surface.  Let’s explore how you may be pushing away business from you.

As I watch my Platinum Clients begin to step into new territory by promoting the new clear and passionate expression into their work, I notice a few things that seem to happen that tell me something deeper is going on to sabotage them.  I quickly help to steer them out of it because I know what’s at stake, potentially thousands of dollars could be lost if they don’t get out of the sabotage they don’t even realize is happening.

Let’s see if you have any of the 3 signs that show you may be secretly pushing away potential clients and sales:

1. You watch the evidence to tell you if you are on track or not

This is one of the biggest mistakes you can make as a spiritual entrepreneur.  Your results ARE a reflection of your energy, consciousness and business skills BUT watching the results can be a mistake depending on how you do this.

I see a lot of people who start promoting something new, after putting it out there they begin to look at the evidence, the results.  Looking at the results is not a bad thing, it can spark a fire under you to find new ways to get your work out to more people if the first attempt wasn’t successful.  It becomes a problem when you look at the results after just putting it out there and interpret the lack of immediate results as a sign of failure or that you are not supposed to be doing what you were trying to do.

This is not being a creator, this is being passive and fearful.  As a spiritual entrepreneur it is your job to TRUST the inspiration you are given and to do all you can to bring it into expression and get it out to those who need it.

 

I’ve found your immediate results can sometimes test your faith and if you continue to believe and to keep putting your work out there you could potentially make thousands of dollars from something you got fearful about and backed off.  In the last 6 months, I know I would have probably lost out on over $30,000 in income had I got stopped by this tricky form of sabotage.

Keep going! Even if you do fail it is not really ever failure because what you learn from failing will help you the next time around.

2. You allow your energy to drop when it counts

I had a Platinum Client going through her first launch of her new brand new coaching program.  She did a mail out and had potential clients connecting with her.  During this week SO much came up within her and all around her to throw her off.  This is a form of sabotage disguised as emotional challenges, doubt, fear and everyday life getting in your way.  The challenge is to CONTINUE keeping your energy high, no matter what.

If your energy drops as you put the message out about a new program or product, this is a big sign you may be secretly sabotaging yourself.  Not keeping your energy up, your belief and expectations up could lead you to energetically not allowing the FULL success and results that were actually meant for you. Had she let her energy be knocked down she would have missed out on signing on her first high paying client.

3.  When some success really does start to happen you feel uncomfortable and energetically back down

This is a very common one and a big indicator there is deeper conflicting energies within you that don’t want you to succeed.  I’ve seen this repeatedly in my business when I had my highest sales months.  In the past, my highest sales months were often followed by my lowest, that’s a common way this sign shows up.

It all starts with you being excited and celebrating your success.  You then you begin to feel a slight discomfort and have no idea why and this is often followed by feeling totally disconnected from your passion, unable to get motivated and to even feel connected to your work.  This is SO damaging because it literally prevents you from keeping your energy up and from putting your work out there AND stops those who are meant to be helped by you from being able to get your help.

This is a very secretive dynamic because you often have no idea what’s happening.  Yet it could be the very thing that is preventing you from growing your business to your next level.  It all starts with awareness!  Bringing these signs into your consciousness allows you to be more aware so you can open to a new way next time.

Could you be missing out on potentially thousands of dollars of in.come without even realizing?

3 Simple Shifts to Narrow Your Niche & Increase Your Passion!

I remember when I first started my business I would always hear about people saying you have to choose your target market and narrow your niche.  I had an hour call with a coach once to do this and it was one of the most draining, exhausting calls I’ve ever had.  It left me totally depleted and with a pretty bad headache.

If the thought of narrowing your niche and choosing your target market activates a bunch of resistance inside of you then I want to help you shift this because by not doing this you are missing out on so much more passion, connection and profits that you really are meant to experience.

I’ve learned since that call with that coach that these concepts are VERY important, but I’ve finally found out WHY and the deeper way to look at all of this that actually makes it exciting!

Getting clear and very specific about who my clients are here to work with and how they are meant to help them is one of the most exciting things we do in the Fearless Faith System.  The beauty of this is that when you uncover exactly what it is you’re here to do and who you’re meant to help, your belief in yourself goes way up because you’re not trying to be all of these things that you’re not.  You get to finally do your best work and be paid much more because it is so valuable.

Here are 3 shifts in perception I want to share with you in order to embrace the idea of narrowing your focus in your business:

1. You have a very specific purpose and it is to help very specific people

Your purpose isn’t to do your specific healing technique.  Your purpose is not to be a coach.

These are WAYS you help the people you are meant to help, they are not your purpose. For the longest time, I had my business centered around my Intuitive Healing Process and this was holding me back from fulfilling my clear, deeper purpose and making the impact I am here to make.

So if your purpose is not the thing you do, then what is it?

Your purpose is to help create a specific transformation in the lives of the clients who need what you have, who are in a specific pain you can help heal. It is something you’ve been trained your entire life for, something you are FULLY capable of doing to whatever degree you can, right now.

2.  Narrowing generates more passion!

Narrowing down what it is that you do is like choosing your favorite parts of your work, what you love to do the most.  And narrowing down who you are here to work with is like only working with your favorite people.

And just what happens to your business when you do this?

 

Your passion goes WAY up!  You’re doing your best work for people you just love, does it get any better than that? Not having this level of passion makes it so much harder to fuel the growth of your business, when you are clear on this, you’re finally tapped into a fuel source that won’t run out.

3.  When you narrow, you can go deep

I thought that if I got narrow, I’d be bored.  I like variety.  I get bored easily and don’t like to do the same thing over and over so this was a big concern for me.  But what I’ve found is now that I’ve narrowed my focus on what I do and who I do it for, I’ve had so much inspiration come through and I find I can talk for endless hours on just one topic (like say this topic)!

Because of this, I am an expert on what I teach and will only become more and more helpful to those I’m here to help as time goes on.  I’ve always been about depth and the gift of narrowing is that it opens up the depths in you, in the inspiration you receive and in the impact you can make in your client’s lives

3 Simple Tips that Could Save You Years of Struggling in Your Business

Are you struggling to get your business going?  Trying one thing after the other yet you’re still stuck?  There are a few things I have found allowed my business to open up in a whole new way resulting in major growth in my business at a few points in time when I needed it to grow.

I remember a few years back feeling so stuck in my business.  I felt like I was trying everything to grow it yet my bank balance had nothing to show for all of that effort I was putting in.  But it all turned around during a major turning point that I chose to step up to and create for myself.

Here are 3 tips I’ve found can save you years of struggle in your business:

Tip #1 Believe, Even when there’s No Evidence

There were two major turning points in my business where I decided I would create a major increase in sales.  Both were times when I was not making what I needed to and both times there had been no evidence that these major leaps in my business were possible.

I chose to believe.  I chose to trust that I was put in a not-so-nice looking position in my life because I was meant to take my business to a new place.  I chose to believe in my purpose, in my path, in the gifts I have to share with those I’m here to help.  I chose to have faith, which is what I believe set up an accelerated path ahead of me and brought me exactly what I needed to create the major growth in my business I was looking for. Which leads me to the Tip #2.

Tip #2 Get Help

The first major income increase in my business happened at the same time I chose to step up.  The same time I chose to have my business support me financially even though the reality in my business was nowhere near that.  Within a few short months, I WAS able to support myself.

How was I able to do this?  How was I able to propel myself forward so quickly?

I got help.

And not just any old help as I had been getting in the past.  I got help from a mentor who really got me, who’s message spoke directly to me, someone who was on the same path as me but was further ahead.

There are SO many programs and mentors I’m sure you’re exposed to.  Trying anything and everything out there won’t move you ahead, it will just leave you overwhelmed and struggling longer.  So just how can you know what’s right for you?

Tip #3 Your Guidance Shows You the Way

Once you decide you’re ready to step up in your business, expect to be guided to which support you need.  But it’s up to you to FEEL what is the right support for you.

Now sometimes you are called to make decisions and to step up in a way that does not seem logical.  If you want to save years off of your path you don’t want to follow the regular logic.  You want to be in tune with the Universe’s logic as it knows all of the shortcuts.

Whenever I make a decision to participate in a program or hire a mentor I get really quiet and check in with myself.  I want to feel that it’s right, to know from deep within me, even if my mind is trying to say no. Feeling right doesn’t mean it wont freak you out to step up and say yes to it, in fact that’s a sign I look for to show me I’m going in the right direction out of my comfort zone, into new territory.

Not only do I check in to feel if it’s the support I need right now, it has to make sense as my next step.  It has to match what you feel is missing in your business.  When I know it’s time to step up I start to become aware of what I believe I need help with in my business, what’s missing.  And countless times I’ve attracted exactly what that was. And this helped me to recognize it when it showed up, adding to my confidence in my decision to go ahead with it.

You don’t have to struggle for years, there are shortcuts and you find them by believing in the way (even though you can’t see it yet) and getting the right help to support you.
