I’m so excited to be back into making my video blogs. I know many of you were disappointed when I stopped. I was too! But it was important for me to focus on remaking my business. Now the structure is strong and elegant and operating smoothly so I can now dive back into serving up hot fresh content, so without further ado . . .
I wanted to go deep and raw and really share with you my deepest fears around my success to help you break through whatever is keeping you playing small.
Today’s video blog is a potent one. Check out this video and then come back to read the juicy finale:
So, I thought I was indestructibly confident. I’d faced all sorts of fears and come through without regrets. I thought nothing could throw me off, but . . . what I realized, as my business grew and I started to get more “likes,” more views, more clients, and more stage time was that, geee, not everyone loves me like my friends and family. I actually stir things up in people and they can project some pretty intense things and, truthfully, it hurts sometimes.
At one point I wouldn’t have allowed myself to feel that, and certainly wouldn’t have allowed myself to admit it to ANYONE, but I’m here to say that, yes, it does impact me. I have a really great daily practice that helps me to shed the projections and get back into my center, but it is actually scary to put myself out there sometimes. But that is NOT the confession I have to share with you today. What I want to do is share with you my deepest and most sensitive growing edge, so here goes:
I still have some frustrating blocks around money and success. I know, it’s crazy and may seem contradictory because I help professional women to attract more wealth, make more money AND have time for themselves and their loved ones . . . AND yet it is still one of the biggest challenges I face.
On one level it may seem hypocritical, I fully understand. How can I help other people do something that I have struggles with myself? But on another level, it makes perfect sense. Those things that we wrastle with the most can be our greatest teachers. Because of what I’ve learned through my own challenges, I’ve been able to help women to jump start their business (see the testimonial video from Dr. Peticolas), take their business to the next level, enhance their success while doing less work, and the stories go on and on. I’ve also grown my own business with a sense of grace and ease and continue to have the time to do a daily prayer and meditation practice, exercise, get out in nature, do yoga, spend time with my loved ones, help out my friends and family and enjoy quality time in other areas as well. I live a truly opulent life and yet I still have struggles and they are in the exact areas that I help others to excel. At times I’ve had those feelings of “What if everyone knew?” and wanted to do my best to hide it. I’m quite certain that it’s held me back, so I’m doing exactly what I suggest you do . . .
GET OVER YOURSELF! Don’t expect perfection. Recognize that your challenges can be your greatest gifts. Someone who’s had to learn things the hard way probably has a few more insights into an experience than someone who breezed through it. Don’t look at your challenges, look at your results, and don’t give up on yourself. Tell the world how exactly human you are. Share your deepest sense of shortcomings and see what happens (or sit back and watch what happens to me first. I don’t mind being the canary in the coal mine!).
Whew! That felt great! Now I don’t need to worry about what people will think if they knew my most challenging struggles. It’s all out in the open now, and I have a feeling it’s not going to kill me or lead me to bankruptcy or failure.
If this seems too scary to do by yourself, or it seems like a great idea, but you just have no idea how to go about embracing your shadow and would like some help so you can finally kick your fears to the curb, quit playing small and start living your dreams, I’d like to gift you with a “Break Through To Success” Discovery Session. These aren’t for everyone. These break through sessions are limited and only for those of you who are really serious about not letting fear run the show anymore so you can finally step up into your big, successful life.
And, for those of you who are interested in my events here in the California Bay Area . . .
There are 3 different ways here for you to join with a powerful community of sacred witnesses in ceremony to gain clarity and vision for what is possible for you, break through old limitations and heal your life.
