Fear or Intuition?

By | Leadership, Success Mindset | No Comments

Imagine you are facing something new – a new opportunity, a new client – and all kinds of stuff is popping up in your mind… worries, doubts, what ifs (What if it doesn’t work? What if I mess up? What if I get in over my head?) Do we listen to this stuff or not? How do we know when it’s just fear talking – and that we need to act in spite of the fear! – or it’s intuition talking and that we should pause and reconsider?

The ‘know it all’ trap

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

There is a big difference between knowing everything and knowing that you can figure out anything. Many service providers believe that they “have to know it all” before they can provide any value to their clients. And that if they don’t “know it all” yet, then they aren’t ready. So they don’t put themselves out there. They get caught in an endless loop of learning and taking courses. They lose sales because they bring their “I don’t know enough yet” mindset to the conversation, and essentially talk themselves out of clients. The drive to “know it all” is a dangerous trap, not only because it’s impossible to achieve (I have…

After 1 time? 3 times? 10 times? On a podcast I was listening to recently the speaker shared a statistic that diets are way more likely to be successful after the 7th time of trying it. That each time a person tries a diet, they are developing and strengthening neural pathways that at a certain point become natural. They become habit. And that is when a person is more likely to find success. The other side of this coin means that the first 6 times will feel like a failure! <— and that’s the rub. That’s the hard part. How does this show up for us in business? When I…

the big eek!

The big eek!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

One of the things we talked about on our Intersection call last week was the big ‘Eeek!’ And how one of the ways we know we are tapping into our zone of genius – our calling – is that it comes with some Eeek! attached to it. It feels scary. Risky. It might even feel downright terrifying. Why is the big Eeek! a part of this process? There are a couple of reasons: 1) Our resistance/ego is triggered when we come face to face with our calling – and it is going to stir up ALLLL our stuff. All our worries, doubts and fears. All the reasons why it won’t…

letting go of this was a doozy!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

“Authentic growth comes from what we don’t know” ~ The Presence Process The question is – are we willing to go there? When I was on retreat back in August we did a ritual where we released something that was no longer serving us. I choose to release “needing to figure it all out”. I wanted to be purposeful to tap more into my intuition and spiritual guidance. Well beware what you wish for right? Letting go of the need to figure things out is a doozy! Especially when I’m really good at it. Especially when I’ve made a living from it. Especially for a control freak like me who likes…
