I’m so sorry I’ve not emailed you for a while, the last few weeks have been majorly busy. I use the word busy in a positive way because I do actually love being busy. I enjoy the prospect of having a full calendar (as long as it’s not overwhelming!) So what have I been up to? Well firstly, we spent the most idyllic week in snowy Scotland. We stayed in a picture perfect cottage in, literally, the middle of nowhere. It was honestly the most remote place I’ve ever been. We, as a family, spent the week having long lazy mornings, bracing walks into the mountains and evenings around the fire. We returned feeling re-charged and full again. I felt like I was living proof of one of my favourite quotes:
‘You can’t drink from an empty cup.”
While I was away I was delighted to see so many new people joining my Facebook group – The School of Happiness. Such an amazing, diverse and wonderful group of people and if you haven’t already, I would love to invite YOU to join too.
After Scotland it was a pretty immediate turnaround for me as I then went into 7 days straight of self-development. It was the culmination of months of study as I became a Certified NLP, Time Line Therapy & Hypnotherapy Practitioner.
What on earth is that I hear you cry. Well I promise to fill you in over the coming weeks but ultimately it means I can help you find the best version of you.
So today I wanted to touch on this idea, this concept of ‘being the best version of you’. What does that mean and how do I find her/him? I can definitely help you here because I went on a personal journey of self discovery during 2015. The road was absolutely bumpy, I cried many tears and there were moments I felt like the world was against me.
And it’s here that I want to fire some home truths at you:
If you feel like the world is against you. It’s not.
If you feel like giving up. That’s normal.
If you’ve cried about your business. Join the club.
I hear from people everyday telling me ‘Business is tough’ or ‘I can’t find enough clients’ or ‘My market is saturated’.
These are EXCUSES.
I should know, I’ve made enough of them in my time. I remember one particular incident where I was barely charging enough money to cover my costs and NOBODY was booking me. I just couldn’t understand it. I was doing everything and more to make my business a success and worrying all day and night and still nothing seemed to be shifting.
Then I had a major realisation. And one that had a profound effect on me and my business.
I had to believe in myself before I could expect anyone else to believe in me.
Do you believe in yourself?
You might think you do or maybe you feel like you’re miles away from self-belief. Wherever you are on the scale I am saying (no I’m SHOUTING) that this needs to be your focus.
You’re here on this magical and wonderful planet for a reason and that reason is to EXPERIENCE life. This isn’t a survival mission, this isn’t The Hunger Games (read the book if you haven’t!) Life is about experience and if you’re spending your time making excuses and lacking self belief then now is the time to do something about this.
What can I do?
Yes I hear this question and the great news is that it’s simple, easy and great fun.
Ask yourself what you really DESIRE?
Ask yourself WHY you want this?
Ask yourself how you will FEEL when you get this?
Ask yourself what steps you need to take to make this a reality?
Ask yourself what you need to BELIEVE to make this a REALITY?
Make your mindset practice a DAILY non-negotiable part of your business.
