This is a story about the ultimate wake up call, how I told my ego to go f**k itself, and what it took to burn it all down in order to rebuild... (You can do it, too, you know... Here's how...)
Last week, I spent a day with a brilliant business duo to map out the next steps for my upgraded business. It's something I have done many times for my clients and for my business.
But this was different. Deep. Wholesome. Fulfilling. Just as the experience that my clients get now is. And it reminded me of the journey that got me here...
See, as a trained consultant, I had always focused on providing solutions. I was the one who saw the gaps, leaks, imbalances, and who laid it all out for clients.
Those who took action, created massive results.
And those results gave me external validation, confirmation that the work we had done was great. My ego was stroked.
(See, the funny thing with ego is that I learned to play the game - generous, polite, happy on the outside, always had it all together... People always admired me for that. Ego was fed.)
But something in me kept nagging me that there was more. That this surface stuff, straight answers, independence and strength were not quite enough. Not any more.
Still, my ego was standing in a way. I resisted the change. Even though the reality was painful - the work that I did started to drain me. I kept resorting to low-end, quick projects...
And kept creating emotional stories around the high-end ones, sort of trying to talk myself out of offering them. I did not feel worthy. Good enough... And that kept me stuck.
Over and over, I would map out the "next steps" for my business and the strategy was driven by ego. Numbers were impressive, action bold and daring...
But while my clients walked away with great and measurable results, the desired results were not quite there for me.
My ego was bruised.
So I would tap into the strategies, facts, business-y stuff... All I was focused on were the numbers.
But my soul was screaming for more essence!
All of that slowly affected my marriage and most importantly - my little ones. They picked up on every ounce of my low energy and reflected it back and manifested in physical reality. Tension, tantrums, sickness...
The roller-coaster of triggers, shame, guilt, pride...
It was clear that my ego was standing between me and the reality I knew was possible for me, my family, my clients and their families and their clients.
And that's was the wake up call I needed.
After years of being coached by some of the most amazing coaches in business, I felt it was time for a change. It was time to go inward.
I was finally WILLING, READY and ABLE to invest in increasing my levels of tolerance - and to team up with a coach who gave me no choice but to look in the mirror, hard and honest... Who empowered me to bare it all, go deep and dig up the dirt, the excuses and the core behind them.
And believe me - as an intelligent, highly motivated and driven woman, former athlete and successful entrepreneur, mom who "did it all" - I was so proud of my ability to figure it out, to do it all, to be strong and independent...
That strength was my worst enemy.
That strength gave my clients results - but not transformation. And that was no longer acceptable.
By healing myself, by allowing myself to be vulnerable (I still have trouble pronounce the word) by stripping my business to the bare bones, and by stripping my own stories down to the bare bones, I was able to REBUILD.
New vision, new energy, new vibration, new approach and new strategies.
And, then, I went further! I wanted to be able to do the same for my clients, so invested even more in learning the ropes!
My life changed!
I have finally embraced the fact that I can walk between the two worlds - the practical and tactical one, filled with strategies and bolts and nuts of how things work... (my ego would be so happy to know it can still embrace that MBA degree).
... and that emotional, intuitive one filled with divine downloads, clear awareness of the future possibilities (clairvoyance)...
Coaching, consulting and mentorship; blocks, mindset, strategies... Getting you out, and keeping you out of the trenches of business and life... Activating possibilities... Turning entrepreneurs into CEOs...
Breaking patterns and shattering limits... Turning vision into reality... (That I have been doing for the past 20+ years!!!!)
Anyhow - with that, new clients walked into my life, and even people who wanted to work with me in the past, but chose not to, have returned because they noticed the difference.
Why am I sharing all of this with you?
BECAUSE I SEE YOU!
:: Afraid of what others will thing of you if you allowed yourself to really shine.
:: Keep pushing something you know is no longer right for you.
:: Trying to squeeze in a box you had outgrown long time ago.
:: Too busy to step back and clarify your true desires and vision - and embrace them.
:: Secretly envying those who can travel, take the day to just do arts and crafts all day, to attend kid's soccer games, or just spend the day in bed.
:: Committing to giving back to the community more, that "one day when..."
:: Defaulting to "We're great!" because you're too ashamed to admit that you cried yourself to sleep again last night...
:: Taking your kids to their favorite restaurant to make up for yelling at them (again) because their honesty triggered you AF. (I know, you NOW feel guilty because this is not the parent you vowed to be.)
:: Refusing to look at your bank account because the numbers there do not reflect your genius, but instead give you anxiety attack... (Believe me, there is no magic number, threshold...!)
:: Having a question that would finally give you that missing piece, but you're afraid to come across as inadequate if you ask in any of your communities... (so you're still stuck.)
But you know what!
You can CHOOSE to end this madness TODAY!
Yes, right now!
Look, we don't have enough room to walk you though the process step by step here...
...although I'd love to.
Here's what you CAN do on your own:
:: Choose to rewrite your story
:: Redefine your vision and goals with the new perspective
:: Rebuild and upgrade the framework for your business and life
:: Recreate the strategies in full alignment with your new vision
:: Act from the new energy, new space, new knowing
Yes, all of that is a choice you make in a moment, every hour of every day until it becomes a part of you. Until you become it.
And if you want and need more:
If you are COMMITTED TO YOUR DREAMS (and not the obstacles)...
If you are ready to play the bigger game; are able, willing and ready to reclaim your life and step into your brilliance, own your power and finally see the results you've been looking for; you are ready for more simplicity and ease...
