Hey Amazing Soul!
Bad things happen to ALL of us from time to time. It happens. And when you own a business people will do you wrong from time to time. I was just screwed over by a client today, but I am not surprised (I saw it coming with the lies in the form of excuses that were being told to me over the past few months). I learned a big lesson in this.
Working for Free
This client owed me money for services I already performed. I mentor because I want to help others, but I have learned you have to draw a healthy boundary for yourself in order to protect yourself. Yes, the Golden Rule is said because karma DOES exist.
From now I know exactly what I’m going to do in order to prevent this from happening ever again (it has happened to me 2 times, and 2 times is ENOUGH). I consulted with my lawyer, I have no clue what my lawyer will say about it, but I at least know my plan of action going forward. And so should you.
What is Your Plan of Action for Your Business in order to Protect It?
Your business is your baby. You work hard at it, you work long hours in it. You deserve to protect not only yourself, but your business. And you deserve to get paid for your services. So, what is your plan of action for scenarios that aren’t filled with roses and unicorns? I think it’s a great exercise to do through journaling.
We All Have Our Journey & Karma Exists for a Reason
But you know what? Despite the fact that I got screwed over today by a lot of money owed to me, I am choosing to respond in an empowering way. This is what truly matters overall: your response. On the way home I stopped at the store, a man in front of me was trying to buy a soda and some snacks. His card got declined for “insufficient funds”. I paid for his stuff. I mean, come on, who doesn’t deserve a soda and some snacks on a Friday at 6pm?
But it’s not just about responding in a kind way just because someone has wronged you. It’s about looking at the BIG PICTURE, overall, most of the time. Yeah, I’m frustrated and I’m a little pissed about getting screwed over like I did. But at the end of the day, I gotta forge ahead and KEEP GOING. Karma exists, I don’t wish ill upon this person, but after today I will not entertain what happened to me within my mindset because the big picture is so much better and brighter than what happened to me.
And this is what I mean by your choice with your response. I’m not worried about this client, they will get the lesson they need to learn. I have learned my own lesson in this.
And when this type of thing happens to you, take it, acknowledge it, and let it go. Write a blog post, do a venting video, write in your journal, buy yourself some beer, do what you gotta do to help you let go and move forward. Brighter things are coming for you and there is so much MORE out there FOR you.
We Are All in This Business Boat Together
I believe in you, you have a purpose in this world. Keep going, keep shining, and don’t let 1 client, 2 clients, hell, even 20 clients get you down. Brainstorm your plan of action going forward so you’re making empowering choices for yourself and protecting your business. It’s your baby, it’s your blood, sweat, and tears. And have faith because this setback is to help you level up and grow– just like it has done for me.
I really wanted to write this blog post so those of you out there who feel like all the shit keeps happening to you, but not to others, know that shit happens to ALL of us.
You’ve got this!
Hey Amazing Soul!
I used to be completely fearful with everything I did in my life, I mean with EVERYTHING. I would make decisions that were safe and easy so that I wouldn’t have to think or feel anything outside of my comfort zone.
But…I never got anywhere in life functioning this way. I never felt authentic and expanded joy in my life. And I never received any of my desires or business goals, either.
I felt like I was mentally and physically running in circles because, well, I was.
When You Say Yes to Your Goals & Desires the Universe Says Yes to You
The only way I was able to start receiving ALL my desires and dreams into my physical realm was to shift my mindset beliefs and break the cyclical patterns of thoughts, beliefs, and actions that no longer served me for my soul’s highest happiness.
What has your soul feeling happiest in life translates into positive changes for your business as well, so long as you are open and allowing FOR change.
Now that I understand and implement this life formula, I say yes and the Universe says it back to me because the Universe operates in a boomerang effect. And ALL my desires started flowing into my physical realm with ease- and quickly!
Now it’s YOUR turn to stop living in fear, to no longer live with massive anxiety, and to learn HOW to make the Universe and the Law of Attraction work for YOU.
I have a unique formula I use and teach to my clients who literally message me and thank me for being able flick the switch and RECEIVE all their desires quickly!
Living inside of your comfort and safety zones do NOT allow you to RECEIVE your desires.
It Doesn’t Have to be So Scary Receiving All Your Desires by Stepping Outside of Your Comfort Zone!
You CAN learn to understand why you have cyclical thinking patterns that currently leaving you feeling stuck with using the Law of Attraction.
You CAN learn to identify whether or not your beliefs should continue to be within your physical sphere.
You CAN learn how to release your beliefs that no longer serve your soul for your highest happiness in life AND in your business, both.
You CAN learn how to implement a newly created abundant belief system through my LOA and cognitive trainings.
You CAN learn how to take daily, manifesting actions moving TOWARDS your manifestations, showing the Universe you mean business with your desires.
You CAN become a Master ManiFASTer!
Be Open to Change & Take Manifesting Action Daily
Your first step in BECOMING your version 2.0 self both in your life AND in your business is to change your cyclical patterns, DESPITE your fears and anxiety.
Feel the fear and do it anyway.
For this weekend I want you to journal by writing out and finishing this sentence stem 3 times (3 sentences in total):
For EACH fear I want you to journal by writing out and finishing this sentence stem 3 times (9 sentences in total):
Lastly, I want you to do just that:
Don’t discriminate on what you are allowing into your sphere, both in your business and in your life. Most of the time it’s so much better than you can even imagine, anyway.
Fear is NOT real, unless you choose for it to be so.
Be a Lighthouse & Attract TO You.
Daily consistent steps (both mentally and physically) lead to BIG results much FASTER! Practice makes for progression and progression brings your manifestations!
You’ve got this, I completely believe in you.
Hey Amazing Soul!
In the Law of Attraction, like attracts like. Chances are, if you are reading this, you may be similar to me in your persona and your energy. I must admit, my out-of-alignment day that started on Tuesday has turned into an out-of-alignment week. Normally I have 1 or 2 days every month where I feel wobbly with my energy. However, with being an empath, I almost feel like I’m having a people-pleaser hangover all week.
I’m usually bursting to get my words typed out into my blog posts, I feel excited making progress each day with my steps on my entrepreneurial journey, and I look forward to grinding away for hours on end with my craft.
I’m a recovering people-pleaser and perfectionist.
I say “recovering” because I still allow people’s guilt trips to seep into my empathetic interior from time-to-time. And I still want to be the best at everything I do. Being an entrepreneur is not for the weak, especially when you start getting noticed for your soul’s purpose-work.
If you think life is a roller coaster, becoming an entrepreneur is like being on that roller coaster and being on steroids.
It’s not always so scary. But, if you are reading this and you are an entrepreneur, or an aspiring entrepreneur, there are many ways entrepreneurs climb up the ladder in the sea of entrepreneurs. There are business pods, affiliation commissions, software robots, etc., but the main reason why entrepreneurs climb up the ladder is because of this:
They believe in themselves and they NEVER give up.
You’ll get wrung tightly like a towel by people and you’ll STILL keep going because it’s your passion. Whether your passion is to help others in the world, make a ton of money, become famous, WHATEVER your reason, it’s that reason that creates your drive to keep going no matter what happens.
A lot of entrepreneurs do not take a day off, especially in the beginning of their start-up. And this journey can be very challenging for empathetic people because our energy is 1,000,000% precious to us. If we aren’t on our “A-game”, we feel like everything in our business is falling apart around us. And this can be very disheartening and exhausting.
Being an Empath Means You Love to Please People, But Can Empaths be Successful Entrepreneurs?
Let me be honest about this: no matter how hard you try, you will NEVER be able to please everyone. And this is actually a GOOD thing. But, this will probably be a difficult challenge for you as an entrepreneur. While we are all human, even though others sometimes forget that we ARE still human with feelings and emotions, it’s very important to have healthy boundaries in place while accomplishing your business dreams.
This is common sense stuff, but in our race to make an impact in the world, we tend to forget some of the most important aspects of being human. Take out your journal or laptop. Here are some questions to ask yourself in order to put healthy boundaries into place while growing your empire:
1) How many days per week will you allow yourself to work? It is important to have some down time for “me” time. Think of the energy-cup metaphor, you cannot perform well being on an empty cup.
2) Who is your ideal consumer? Meaning, what is their age, their sex, their challenges and what they want to solve, their personality type, their hobbies, their learning style, etc. Anyone who does not fit into your consumer profile, don’t accept their money. It’s not worth it because they are not in alignment with YOU and what YOU provide to them.
This does not mean they aren’t an ideal client. There are so many AMAZING souls in the world who help others, and we all have a niche. This is why I say it’s a GOOD thing to not be able to please everyone. Like attracts like. It’s the Law of Attraction!
3) Where do you draw the line? You want to HELP others, this is in your nature, but where do you draw the line with someone taking advantage of you? You spend hours upon hours working behind the scenes to create your products, you deserve to be compensated for your crafts. Create a policy plan and have it place so you can use it as a guide for the times you run into business challenges with consumers. Also, you’re a mentor, not a vending machine. Have a healthy boundary set in place.
4) What does it mean to be a Leader? Chances are you want to mentor others because you want to help them. This makes you a leader. Ask yourself during your Mastering ManiFASTing journaling: What is my legacy after my time on earth expires? How do I want to be remembered by others?.
Obviously, we are human, we are going to make mistakes both in business and in life. It’s okay and this doesn’t mean you aren’t good at your craft. You’re human. Period. So relax, focus on what kind of leader you strive to be, how you want others to be motivated and inspired by you, and understand that you cannot force others to change. They still have to do it, themselves, if they so choose to because of free-will. You’re a leader, not a dictator. Lead by example. It’s up to everyone else to get into the driver’s seat of their own lives and actually MAKE the changes. You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot force it to drink the water. Right? OWN your leadership like the total Badass that you ARE as a leader. You’re doing so much better than you realize, I promise.
The clearer you get on the above, the better off you’ll be while growing your entrepreneurial empire. I totally believe in you, Amazing Soul! Stay true to your own soul, keep going every single day, practice makes for progression and progression brings your manifestations. You’ve got this!
Release Your Fear & ManiFAST!
Hey Amazing Soul!
I give FREE Mastering ManiFASTing training in the Facebook community, Manifest It!, and I just added new training, representations of your manifestations. I’m adding it to the Members Freebies Library, as well, so you can always refer back to it when you want. Here is the training:
1) Think of something tangible that you really want to manifest. It can be anything, but be specific of what it is. Examples: a brand new black leather 3-seat-cushioned couch.
2) What would I think holding/being in it? Examples: I think the leather represents richness, I think leather cushions are super comfy and cozy, I think black is the color of power.
3) What else represents what you wrote for #2 about this tangible item? List at least 3-5 things.
4) Why do I feel they are closely similar to each other? Give 2-3 reasons why for EACH. Start with, “For me, they both represent…”
5) Look around your home/work space area. What can you do to jazz up an area to represent the FEELINGS of what #1 conjures up for you (explored through #2-4)?
6) You guessed it, start doing it! Create those FEELINGS of representation! Because really whatever you perceive to be true is what becomes true in your reality. So why not mesh TOGETHER the representations of multiple things? Example of what I mean is, no one really cares if they have a lot of money. Everyone wants to FEEL like they have a lot of money because of what it represents to them.
You’ve got this! Practice shifting your limiting thoughts, practice your feelings of already having it/being it (whatever you want to manifest into your life), and take soul-inspired actions to SHOW the Universe you mean business!
