#1 Key Trait of Successful Coaches & Healers

KeyThere are a lot of things I had to learn the hard way on my path from Mechanical Engineer to building a successful healing business.  One of them was very surprising, yet it has been one of the secrets to my success and to the success of so many other thriving healers.  This key trait has the potential to accelerate the growth of your business and possibly save you years of unnecessary struggle!

Before I share this #1 key trait with you, I’d like to share with you what a typical coaching & healing business looks like operating without this secret…

Without knowing the secret, most coaches & healers attempt to grow their business by doing what they feel drawn to and taking actions that feel good.  Often they are big into the Law of Attraction (which is important!), so they focus on feeling good and like to stay in that good-feeling state as much as possible.

There’s nothing wrong with focusing on feeling good, but taking good-feeling actions only is detrimental in business and could be the exact thing in the way of your success.

Why?

Because actions that feel good and comfortable are in your COMFORT ZONE.  Your comfort zone is basically where everything you’re comfortable with lives.  Everything that you’re used to is in your comfort zone.

SO… if you’re not used to making awesome money as a healer, then taking comfortable actions will not create awesome money as that’s not currently in your comfort zone.

In essence, comfortable actions lead to same old results.  And you want more don’t you?  Your soul is calling you to create more isn’t it? Yes!

When I was taking comfortable actions my sales were stuck at $800 a month.  Ugh!  Comfort is the old way!

Okay, so on to the #1 key trait.

Recently I was blown away by a once in a lifetime opportunity that landed in my lap.  My work is literally going to be exposed to hundreds of thousands of people, it will be shared with the communities of many multi-million dollar business owners.  This is a dream come true.  Yet it wasn’t just a dream that magically manifested.  It took me demonstrating this #1 key trait multiple times to even allow for it to appear.

Okay so the #1 key trait of all successful coaches & healers is this:

Courage

They choose courage over comfort. What does this mean?  Comfortable actions get you more of the same results.  And if you want to make more money than you are now, if you want to reach more people, you’ll have to leave your comfort zone.  This means, you want to be OKAY with being uncomfortable!

It is the willingness to be uncomfortable, to mess up, to make mistakes, to stumble, to fall, to fail and to not be perfect that will create way more success, way faster.  And that takes courage.

The path to your wildly amazing success is around you right now.  If you’re willing to be uncomfortable to reach way more people, way faster, let the Universe know!  Let the Universe know you’re willing to take NEW actions, to be courageous instead of comfortable.  Believe me, you will have opportunities come to you.  And they may terrify you.  Awesome!  Say yes.  Step up.  Your people are waiting!

3 Steps To Activate Rapid Business Growth With Help!

One of the key ways to grow your business quickly is to simply get help.  Many entrepreneurs are resistant to help as they feel they need to figure it all out themselves.

Getting help to grow your business accelerates your path to more money and more impact in the world so if you’re in the “I should figure it out myself” mode right now, maybe it’s time to reconsider this old thinking.

I used to think I was supposed to figure it out myself and if I couldn’t it said something was wrong with me.  I thought I would prove something if I succeeded on my own.  Yet my sales at that time stayed WAY too low.  The day I finally admitted that I didn’t actually know how to make great money in my business was one of the most pivotal days in my business.

It allowed me to finally ask for help and with that came rapid business growth.

I believe with all of my heart that the Universe wants you to succeed. Even MORE than you do.  Because your business isn’t just about you.  It’s about the people that you’re meant to impact.  It’s about the amazing transformation that happens in their lives.

The Universe not only wants you to succeed but it doesn’t want you to do it alone. Alone is no fun.  It’s tiring and it can take endless years or might not even happen.  There is amazing support out there right now.

Your way to rapid business growth is likely around you right now, yet you won’t receive this help if you’re not willing to get help.

There are 2 important keys to investing in yourself and your business growth:

#1 Choose the RIGHT support. I’ll talk more about this in a moment.

#2 USE what you learn!  This one may sound obvious but it’s not enough to learn how to grow your business, you must also implement what you learn!  You’d be amazed at how many people don’t use what they learn and stay stuck!  The key here is to implement what you learn so it’s an investment instead of an expense.

Now I will warn you, there are SO many people out there who can help you and they’re not all right for you.

It’s important to attract the RIGHT support for YOU to take you where you want to go.  I’ve managed to do that over and over and I’d love to share with you the 3 steps I use to do this:

1. Specify the Assistance You’re Ready For

You are the owner of your business.  You are the boss, you are responsible for your business at the end of the day.  From an empowered place, take a look at what you feel you need to learn in order to grow.

At one point I was overwhelmed with so many 1:1 clients and I knew continuing to grow my business as it was would lead to burnout.  So I clearly specified that I wanted to learn how to grow my business in a more leveraged way.

Some people don’t the actual “how to” of attracting clients.  In this case it’s important to specify learning how to attract paying clients.

Or, some just know the next level of sales they’d like to grow to and they have no idea what they need to learn.

Take a moment right now to reflect on what type of assistance right now.  The easiest way to do that is to fill in the blank here:

I don’t know how to ________________________.

For example, “I don’t know how to make more money in my business” “take my business to $_____ yearly sales” “I don’t know how to create a leveraged business” or “I don’t know how to attract paying clients”. Whatever it is for you.

2. Express Your Intention

When you are clear, your intention is SO powerful. I remember the most powerful intention I ever set.

I was a year into my first Engineering job and I was BORED.  I knew I was meant to do something else.  I felt empty inside.

One day I felt a clarity come over me.  I realized, even though I didn’t know how in the heck I’d do what I loved for work or even what that was, I decided it was time.  With a strong sense of clarity and intention, I wrote these words in my journal:

“I know that I’m meant to be more and do more, I’m ready, show me the way!”

The Universe was obviously listening.  Within a few months I was laid off of my Engineering job and I began my path as an entrepreneur.  I would not be writing these words to you right now had I not wrote out that clear intention.

Your intention opens up worlds of support that you can’t see yet. Now that you’re clear, it’s time to let the Universe know that you’re ready for support.

Go ahead and write out (and ideally say out loud) the following:

“I accept that I don’t know how to ________________ and I am now ready and willing to receive the exact help I need, show me the way!”

3. Use Your Intuition

Once you activate the support all around you by stating your intention, it will show up.  And maybe other support that’s not for you will also show up. It’s up to you to discern what is the right support for you.

It’s important to see if the support that shows up feels right and fits what you need.  For me it’s important to not just use logic but to use intuition.  Sometimes intuition points out a way that feels right even if it seems like a scary thing to do.

Fear is not intuition, in fact, it’s often a good sign that you’re headed in the right direction.

The mentor I hired to help me leverage my business was a big investment and it was terrifying because of the situation I was in financially at the time.  Yet my intuition kept saying yes so I chose to trust it.  It was one of the best decisions I ever made, my sales doubled that next year.

If you’re confident in your intuition, great!  You’ll know what help is best for you and you’re good to go.

If you’re not sure how to use your intuition confidently and quickly when it’s time to make a decision, I highly recommend the “Choice Illumination Process”.

I created this program because I had made so many decisions using my intuition that led me to a more prosperous and profitable business and I knew others could benefit from the process I use.

Right now it’s only $47, and is going up to $97 soon as this skill is so valuable!

3 New Energetic Challenges To Step Up to in 2013

Now more than ever, there are new energies coming in to support our growth and evolution at a rapid pace.  It is an amazing energy that can draw you into the highest and greatest experiences in life.  Yet, it’s not always a walk in the park.  I’d love to share with you a few tips to understand and handle this new energy that’s here that has a huge impact in your business.

The energy we are in, more than any other time in history, is the energy of “Illumination”. 

Doesn’t that sound all rosy and nice…  Illumination.  Bright, shiny, glowing, radiant, enlightening – Illumination.

Illumination can be a wonderful thing, but there’s another side to illumination you may not be as aware of.  One I first became aware of after beginning to read Kryon channels years ago by Lee Carroll (a man who channels and was invited repeatedly to channel at the UN www.kryon.com).

The challenge with Illumination is that it means the light is being turned on.  Not just in the nice, beautiful places you’re so used to.  The light is also shining into those really dark places you’ve wanted to ignore your whole life.  All those things you’ve swept under the carpet are now visible and getting attention.

When the light turns on, it illuminates the dark places.  And it’s often not a pretty sight.  I believe that’s what we’re seeing in the world today.  The dark is being exposed.

So what the heck does this have to do with your business?

Everything.

Light demands integrity, clarity, truth.  It calls any darkness out to be dealt with.  This creates many challenges in business to be faced and dealt with.

Here are 3 ways this new energy may show up in your business:

1) Motivation

Have you felt a loss of motivation lately?  The old motivators not quite doing it for you anymore?  Perhaps money or recognition drove you in the past and now it simply doesn’t drive you like it used to.  Perhaps being motivated to succeed to “prove” you’re worthy or capable of success just doesn’t work either.

In this new energy, results created from old motivators fall flat or just don’t happen like they used to.

We are being called to move to a deeper, more sustainable fuel source.  The fuel of your natural essence, your Divine nature.  This can only be accessed when the old motivators and the reasons for their existence fall away.  We are being called to live from the core truth of who we are rather than the old programming of the past.

2) Lack of Clarity

Sometimes in the new energy you can end up in a state of confusion or lack of clarity.  This is often a great sign that rewiring is happening internally.

This often happens to bring about a deeper energy of truth from within you to be expressed in your business.  I truly believe that your purpose in your business is to be as fully YOU as possible.

Often times of confusion or lack of clarity is here to help you do just that.  What no longer excites you? What could you let go of or adjust so it feels like YOU?  Embrace the gift of confusion as a way to take you higher, to greater fulfillment, passion and money.

3) Facing the Truth

The days of ignoring your intuition, of ignoring what doesn’t feel right inside and powering through are winding down.  We are moving into a time of Truth, of Realness.

It is a time of facing the truth, which may not always be pleasant but is necessary.

Facing the truth of your feelings about many things in your business may sometimes feel scary, yet how can you create a business that feels thoroughly good if you don’t face the fact that some aspects of your business don’t feel good?

I’m a big believer in the Law of Attraction, it’s important, yet what is also becoming more and more important is HONOURING yourself.  Denial is an energy we are being called to let go of.

In this new energy, ignoring the truth might work for a while, but don’t be surprised if something happens to shake things up and make you face it eventually anyway.

The promise of facing the truth is being able to create TRUE happiness, creating success that is truly fulfilling, creating your business match your true nature.

What truth have you been avoiding facing in your business?  What about your business or the way you operate in it doesn’t feel good anymore?

Just because you face the truth doesn’t mean you have to change anything.  Honour yourself by facing the truth and opening the door to what can be.

Resonate with any of these challenges? I’d love to hear about it, share your comments below!

Did you know there could be major energies within you that make it harder to succeed during this powerful time we’re in?

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.

Feel Safe Putting Yourself Out There!

As a Holistic Practitioner/healer, someone who is here to help create a powerful transformation in the planet and in the lives of those you are meant to help, there are very unique and specific challenges to your journey.  One of these is feeling uncomfortable putting yourself out there.  In this article, I share 3 mindset shifts to help you feel a bit safer putting yourself and your work out to the world.

There are many deeper underlying dynamics at the root of this issue but the good news is there are simple mindset shifts that can help steer you in the right direction even if the underlying dynamics haven’t shifted yet

Here are the 3 mindset shifts to help you come out of hiding with your work:

Mindset Shift #1: You’re Only Meant to Help Those Who Resonate with You

One of the biggest underlying fears around putting yourself out there has to do with the fear of someone out there not liking you and rejecting you.  The truth is, there will always be people out there who don’t like you, who maybe even think you’re crazy!  But guess what? It doesn’t matter!

The people you are meant to work with will love you, they are on the same page as you, they resonate with your most authentic message. So don’t hold it back!

I am amazed every day at the incredible people I get to work with, had I shrunk down and stayed in hiding, there’s no way they would have found me.  Open to the idea that your people ARE out there, they resonate with you and those who don’t resonate don’t even matter.

Mindset Shift #2: Speak Directly to Your Ideal Client

To help further Mindset Shift #1, it is very important that you speak DIRECTLY to your ideal client.  Speak directly to their pain, their challenges using their language and as if you were talking to one individual, directly to them.

When you’re used to hiding out you’re not used to the energy of connection which is one of the most important energies in your business.  To start establishing this energy of connection, for everything you write for your business, imagine you were writing directly to your most ideal client.  Directly to her.  And be yourself, just as if she was right there in front of you.

This way, if there are those out there who don’t resonate with you at least they will know it and can jump out of your community.  If you’re busy trying to please everyone and be all things to all people you won’t get to help anyone because no one will CONNECT with you.

Mindset Shift #3: You Have a Very Specific Purpose

You must drop the idea of being the person who can help anyone if you are to help all of the people you are meant to help.

The truth is, I could help people with lots of things, I have a lot of knowledge about math for example but for me to help people with math would be a big waste.  Because although I CAN help people with a lot of things, I have a very specific purpose.  It is the same in your business.

When you drop all that you aren’t passionate about, or are even just lukewarm about in your business and focus on what gets you the most excited, you are in tune with your passion.  When you’re doing the work you’re most passionate about you are living your purpose.  Isn’t that great?

Why do I share this with you?  Your job isn’t to put yourself out there to the entire world, your job is to put yourself out there to those you are MEANT to help.  To those who need exactly what you have and exactly who you are. Have this picture in your mind replace the one you may be used to where the world out there is a scary place where there’s all sorts of people out there who may not like you.

Take the risk, put yourself out there so YOUR people can find you.  Be willing to do what it takes to be visible to them. And if you ever feel like hiding again, come back to these 3 Mindset Shifts to help you refocus and continue to put yourself out there.

The Hidden Gift in Distraction and Overwhelm

You feel the pressure of trying to get your business going, trying to do all you can to support yourself from it.  So why is it that with all of this pressure and desire to succeed you back down when it really counts? Getting distracted by anything that comes along or being overwhelmed by even the simplest next step?  There is a deeper purpose to this distraction and overwhelm and until you see it, it could be creating an invisible ceiling on your success.

When distraction and overwhelm are showing up in your business, it typically means one thing.

Resisting your next level of success.  Your way of keeping yourself exactly where you are.

What?!  Why would you want to do that?

As ridiculous as it sounds, most people fear success.  We would rather stay where we are comfortable even if it means not making enough money from your business, not being able to leave your old job behind and living in struggle.

On the surface it may appear as though you want success.  You talk about it, work towards it, learn about it, take action but if you are finding yourself distracted and overwhelmed this indicates you may be avoiding your next level of success.

The path of moving from your career you chose out of fear, just for the money or to be acceptable to doing what you love, the work you are born to do is a major vibration and consciousness shift within.  On this path you are moving from the known into new unknown territory.  And if you want to accelerate your path then you will want to use distraction and overwhelm as the gifts that they are.

Here are two ways to do just that:

1. Recognize That Distraction and Overwhelm Are Signs You’re Approaching New Territory

Distraction and overwhelm are two powerful ways you keep yourself from the unknown, but they can also be used to show you when you are resisting the new.  When you catch yourself in distraction or overwhelm, it’s time to look deeper so you can make a new choice.

The fact that you find yourself in distraction and overwhelm, stop and ask yourself what the new territory is that you could be moving into.  Getting your work out in a new way?  Getting your work out to new people?  Doing something you have never done before?

When you are conscious of what you are really resisting, you can make a conscious choice to continue the way you have been, or to boldly step into this new territory where new realities and new successes can exist.

2.  Make a Conscious Choice to Step Into that New Reality

Fear only works in the dark.  Once you shed the light of your awareness on something you are avoiding because of fear the energy shifts and you will likely not feel the same about it.  From this new place of awareness you are in a more powerful position and you can CHOOSE to step into the new reality you are being called into.

Once you’ve caught yourself in distraction and overwhelm and uncovered some of what the new territory is that you are avoiding moving into your next step is to make a conscious choice to step into that reality by taking action.

The action does not have to be monumental.  Ask yourself, what would one simple step be that I could take to move FORWARD into this new reality? And take it!

Could other energies be at work under the surface sabotaging your success in your business?

One Simple Costly Mistake that Could Be Costing You Thousands in Missed Sales

Do you often feel disappointed with the results you have created through your efforts in your business?  You start out envisioning great success then the reality doesn’t appear to be going in that same direction?  There is one costly mistake I have seen many spiritually conscious entrepreneurs make when this happens and it takes some shifts in thinking to get out of it.

As spiritually conscious entrepreneurs we tend to be great dreamers but we’re also pretty sensitive so when it feels like the reality is starting to appear as though it is not going to match what we envisioned we can just want to back off to avoid feeling disappointed.

It’s one thing to fail but it’s a whole other thing to believe, to trust, to expect the best and THEN to fail. It hurts a lot worse and that added sensitivity doesn’t help, so it appears easier to back off instead.

So while this is going on internally and it appears as though backing off when evidence seems to be the opposite of what you envision is safe it is a HUGE mistake.

 

I’ve seen repeatedly that it’s the belief that plays such a huge role in creating our results.  Fearless Faith is about trusting UNTIL the results show up.

I’ve seen 3 specific incidences in the past few months where the immediate evidence said what I was doing was not going to be successful.  But I didn’t let myself back down, I trusted the inspiration that got me going in the first place and I kept going.

And you know what happened?  These 3 times the initial evidence had nothing to do with the final results. The initial evidence said it’s not going to happen, this is a failure but the results?  Over $30,000 in sales that would not have happened had I backed down.

It’s SO costly to give up too soon!  Who knows how much you’re leaving behind by stopping too soon.

But what if no results show up?  Let’s say you trust, you keep going and you still fail, then what?

If you fail then you learn from the experience, it’s as simple as that.

You ask yourself what can I learn from this experience? Or is there something I need to learn, support I need to get so it’s more successful next time?

Sure it takes you digging deep to find that brave self inside of you but I’ve found that this is necessary on this path.  This path of becoming a successful spiritual entrepreneur is not for those who choose to be small. Eventually you will have to take a risk, step up and put your whole self in.  And when you do you will really see things start to shift.

There are several energetic dynamics that can be at play to make this more difficult but you can still get started now.

Next time you find yourself wanting to back down when the results don’t appear to be as you expected I challenge you to be bold, to be brave, to continue to move forward, to trust whatever inspiration got it all started in the first place and to be willing to fail so you can learn.

It’s amazing how hard we are on ourselves.  Imagine a little kid trying to learn to ride a bike.  You can’t just expect yourself to be successful until you’ve mastered all of the skills involved with being successful just as the kid has to wobble, fall and get back on the bike.  It is only logical.

Let yourself trust, let yourself wobble, fall and get back on! Be ON the journey, show up fully and be willing to learn in whatever way it takes so you can succeed.

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

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

Want help finding out WHO your people are and what your transformation is?

In the Freedom to Shine Program, you’ll not only find out exactly who you are here to work with and how you are meant to help them, (our next training call!) you’ll also free up the specific energy dynamics within you that are keeping you from stepping into your next income level.  We started a couple weeks ago, but it’s not too late!
