Not every idea or thought you come across is for you or requires anything from you.
I’ve had lots of wobbles over the last year as I’ve started coming out about my coaching business. From ‘what will people think of me’ to ‘I can’t do this’, or ‘you’re never going to succeed’. I’m having one now while I’m writing (‘you’re not explaining this well’)
Every wobble is a direct result of my thoughts.
I used to let thoughts hold me back. I didn’t want to tell people what I was doing in case I failed. I didn’t want to change the way I’ve always done things because that ‘worked’ and changing might mean failure.
Now when I have a wobbly thought I ask myself if I am being true to the person I am BECOMING. Not the person I am today, the future version of me. It’s made a huge difference! The person I am becoming is good with failing because it means she’ll be growing.
I don’t want to be the person who lets my own negative thoughts hold me back so I’m choosing to be true to the person I’m becoming.
Who do you want to become? What would you like your future self to be like? What would you know? What would you talk about? Where would you be? Who would you spend time with? What you be thinking? What would you do differently?
Start being it.
Who wants to join in the game? 😇
HELLO HELLO – IT’S TODAY!!! I AM E X C I T E D!!
Did you start your career change, feeling super proud of yourself, and you quickly stalled because you stopped taking action and didn’t know what to do next? Did you rush out the starting gates, throwing yourself into a career change programme? You took notes, you listened carefully and you even started taking lots of action that got you excited and felt good.
Then you STOPPED. You were tired. You figured you’d take a little break. But the little break got bigger and bigger. Now it’s an enormous ‘thing’ and you don’t know where to start?
REIGNITE CAREER CHANGE INTENSIVE MASTERMIND: reignite your career change!
In this Reignite experience you will get back into action, create new momentum for your shift, recharge your inspiration and create opportunities to brainstorm ideas, challenge your assumptions (all those ways your thinking is holding you back) and reignite your own support network.
We begin Monday 31st May, 19:30 UK.
Let me know if this feels like it’s for you.
Contact me and say YES, I’m ready to Reignite! for investment information.
I’ve experienced the incredible power of intensely focussed small group Masterminds, and I have a feeling this is going to be rocket fuel for your shift!!
I’ve just spent an incredible hour dancing!
I’ve performed on stage since I was little. I’m always VERY nervous every time I perform alone on stage. Like, ‘how many times can I go to the bathroom before the show’ nervous . I know what it’s like to feel scared and vulnerable AND show up anyway.
I joined a virtual embodiment class today (dance with a difference). I hadn’t thought ahead but when I had to choose with or without camera I chose ‘without’.
I thought this a good choice. I didn’t know if I’d like it and actually I really wanted to have it on in the background while I did other stuff. I was definitely in for a passive experience!
Until the leader asked us repeatedly to turn cameras on.
Argh! I felt SO uncomfortable! I refused five times before I turned it on – moving so I couldn’t be seen.
As the dancing began I felt more and more comfortable and slowly edged my way onto the screen. The vulnerable openness of all those going for it in their dancing made it feel OK. Safe space.
No rules, no steps to get ‘right’ just dancing for the experience – being in my body.
It was SOOOO much fun!
Here’s an invitation: do something different TODAY to let yourself be more than you’ve been before.
Take up space today in a NEW way.
I’m not a ‘solopreneur’.
Yes, I’m ultimately responsible for choices I make about what I do, how I do it and when I do it. Like tonight, when I chose to work a little after pausing for play, dinner, bedtime and a good crime drama. I decide where I put my energy. I do not work in isolation.
There is nothing ‘solo’ about me or my work.
I know I’m at my best when I’m surrounded by other people who support me, challenge me, inspire me, guide me, assist me and who I can do the same for in return. Like my own personal board of directors. Not every second of every day but there if I need them. My crack squad!
I get such deep joy from sharing with other people in that way and it’s incredible powerful when it flows both ways. That joy creates its own wonderful energy and momentum. I’m more likely to take action when I’ve got people who get ‘it’ and get me to act as a sounding board, to call me out if I’m not standing in my own courage.
All of that leads to action – to success.
I’ve felt really inspired this year from stepping into new collaborations, creating my own squad and playing in spaces like mastermind groups where I’ve been able to show up fully as me in all my vulnerable glory – to not only give but to receive.
Solo, I am not.
