Do you have debt? Even stating the word makes me cringe a little bit. I used to be in $29K worth of debt. I’m talking legalized loan-shark credit cards debt. It was awful. And I used to think there was only one way out of it.
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.
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!
