What Are You Getting Ready To Grow
What do I need to know?
I have taken a long break from my newsletters and like most of you have spent the last few months ensconced in my own creation process. You see, after working with clients I realized something really important. Each one of us is striving towards something bigger than just money in our lives. We want to make a wider impact in the world. In addition, we want to deepen our activities in areas that we love. And finally, we want to increase our sense of well-being, joy and self-worth. In other words, we don’t want small incremental changes in our lives; instead we are searching for quantum leaps! Which is why I have taken a leap of faith in myself and I have revamped my work to include comprehensive programs to help my clients achieve their highest potential.
If you are feeling the nudge to step into something bigger, bolder, and (my new favorite word) audacious then this may be the perfect message for you.
How can I apply it my business?
There is a lot to gain in stepping into what author Dr. Gay Hendericks calls the Zone of Genius (I prefer zone of Mastery) in his excellent book The Big Leap.This is where you actualize your full potential and feel more alive because you are spending your time only on things that light you up. Instead of working on your creations, you are instead allowing the creative energies to flow through you. When you are in this zone circumstances, events, people, and all types of resources present themselves in service to you. However, there is a dark side to entering this hallowed space that in truth we all deserve: FEAR.
Each one of us feels it in different ways. We subconsciously push away the very thing that we want the most and sabotage our best efforts to step into our new creations. Let me give you an example. One of my professional goals is to offer workshops in the D.C. metropolitan area to help business owners and entrepreneurs identify their inner financial ceiling that keeps them stuck in a particular zone. My workshops have been successful, however the groups were small intimate ones. I recently made the decision that it’s time for me to make these presentations to a larger audience. A step in the right direction, wouldn’t you agree? Except that within a matter of days I developed a cough and cold that robbed me of my voice and my ability to speak. While most people may dismiss it as purely coincidental, this has happened to me too many times for me to ignore what is a potentially important learning opportunity.
I stopped and asked myself a simple question. What is really going on inside of me that I don’t want to face and am using this illness as an excuse to avoid? The answer was right there at the surface; it only required a moment of consciousness. My fear was that I would not be able to connect with people the same way in larger groups. A fear that I know is unfounded because many of my coaches and mentors regularly connect with hundreds, if not thousands, of people at their events.
If you are still reading this message probably resonates with you. I invite you to take a moment to ask yourself where you are holding yourself back. A common answer I hear is that I cannot financially commit to stepping into my fuller self and my question is how can you not afford to commit? Your circumstances and situation will only change once you take the first step on the path. Nothing changes while you contemplate and wait for the ideal time. I know I have wasted a lot of time in my life hoping and praying that things would be different instead of putting that energy into creating something new. If this feels true for you, I suggest that you make a decision to take one small step in the direction of your dreams. Something as simple as writing them down can act as a powerful catalyst on your masterful journey.
