These are the three things I want to share with you most of all.
The three things I wish we all learned when we were young.
The three things I believe can and will make a difference to you and how you see your ability to create and live the life of YOUR dreams.
I hope you get as much out of reading them as I did discovering and writing them myself.
Do what’s right for you.
How many times have you stayed somewhere because you “should”?
How often do you choose something that suits everyone?
How many of your decisions have been based on what someone else wants? Someone else needs?
Your parents. Your partner. Your children. Your boss.
When was the last time you chose something just for you?
Something that you wanted, something you desired, something that lit you up inside?
What we don’t realise is the more we allow everyone else’s needs to come first the more we’re losing ourselves.
The more we choose to keep the peace the less we express ourselves.
The more we ignore the things that don’t light us up to please people or because we feel we should,
well the more our light dims…
And when that happens then that’s when we start to feel lost.
That’s when those moments of emptiness and loneliness show up.
That’s when we get desperate and throw it all in the air.
We burn everything down so that we feel free again.
What if it didn’t need to be that way?
What if we started doing what was right for us BEFORE we got to that point?
How would THAT feel?
Imagine how much richer our lives would be.
This life, our current one BEFORE we burn it all down.
Imagine what our relationships would be like? There’s a level of intimacy that comes from being completely ourselves, honouring our own needs, wants and desires and being able to share that with one another knowing that neither of you are being of service to the other unless you’re doing what’s right for you.
Imagine what your work would look like? The level of commitment and consistency you would show your clients, because these would be your Soul Clients, because why would you have any other kind of client???
Imagine your parenting? How you would show up knowing both that your own cup was filled AND that you’re parenting YOUR WAY.
So when are you going to start doing what’s right for you?
Be open to receive
I truly believe that we can all receive as much money, as much abundance and prosperity as we desire.
As long as we are an energetic match for it.
I believe that whatever you are energetically aligned to us what you will get.
Now this can work for you or against you. You may for example be energetically aligned to EARN $10000 a month but only feel like you’re worth $5000 a month, in this case what would occur is as you earn more money you’ll also find unexpected (and planned) ways to spend as much money as it takes to have you feeling comfortable.
Gay Hendricks would call this an Upper Limit Problem (read The Big Leap if you want to know more).
I’ve always known this to be true for me.
Anytime I’m not in abundance I know there’s something deeper I’m avoiding.
What I never thought about until recently is what happens when you’re gifted in a way that you’re not aligned to?
For example I’m sure none of us would reject or feel unworthy to receive money for something we perceive as hard work.
An eight hour day of some gruelling task.
What if though you were to be paid twice as much for something that comes easy to you?
Something that took you half the time that was allocated.
Would you feel as deserving?
Would you feel as though you earned it?
Would you accept it?
And what if we go a step further and someone was to approach you and offer you $10000 to spend the week observing you at work?
How would that feel?
Or if someone were to gift you something expensive that would help you in your business?
V.I.P. Coaching from a well known expert in your field (or theirs),or a fully customised website?
Would you accept it and make the most of it?
Would you take that coaching and drink in every bit of knowledge that expert had and put it into practice transforming both your personal life and your business?
Would you make sure you created the best website for your business, expanding your reach to potential clients?
Or would you turn down the offer?
Sabotage the work and results that you could have working alongside these people that could transform your business?
So often we feel that we need to deserve abundance.
So often it needs to come to us a certain way.
We need to work hard for it.
We need to earn it.
We need to suffer for it.
So often we miss opportunities because they look differently to how we believe they’re supposed to look.
We sabotage ourselves because we feel we didn’t earn it.
What would it take for you to be open to receiving more?
More than you’ve ever received before.
What would it take for you to receive with ease?
What would it take for you to be an energetic match for whatever you want?
Why the world needs you
It’s easy to waste time when we believe no one is listening.
It’s easy to take the day off because someone else will do the work.
It’s easy to blur our boundaries and give in because it’s only a little bit.
It’s easy to say yes to someone else’s needs when we forget the importance of our own.
It’s easy to put off today what we think we can do tomorrow.
It’s easy to take for granted the people in our lives, thinking we have all the time in the world.
It’s easy to stop sharing our message because someone else has already said it.
It’s easy to give up, feeling like what we do doesn’t really make a difference.
The thing is though:
SOMEONE is always listening.
No-one else can do OUR work.
Blurring the boundaries hurts us AND robs others of ourselves and what we’re here for.
Saying yes to others needs when it means we need to say no to ourselves only leads to resentment, frustration and anger AND leads to expectations of the other which is both supremely unfair and passive aggressive.
NO-ONE else can say it the way we do.
Meaning that those that NEED to hear it from us don’t get to hear it.
We are always making a difference, with our thoughts, our words and our actions. It’s up to us what kind of difference we make.
