On New Year's day, I attended a beautiful yoga class where the instructor asked us to choose one word to symbolize our 2018, write it on a post-it note, and put it under our mat.
For me, the word I chose was "abundance."
Merriam-Webster's dictionary defines it as an ample quantity, meaning there is more than enough. And despite the fact many of us think of abundance in purely financial terms, creating your own "Life Amplified" means stepping into abundance in ALL areas of life-- money, love, connection, freedom, energy, impact, and joy.
Over the last 3 years, what I've seen time and time again is that there's one mindset shift we must make in order to truly experience abundance at the highest levels.
We must shift our thinking from "either/or" to "yes/and."
Simply put, we must let go of an outdated thought system which tells us we must choose between two things we want and realize we can create and have BOTH.
The scariest journey of my life happened when I walked away from the security of a six-figure corporate salary and started my coaching business. Most of the people in my life thought I was having a mid-life crisis and urged me to reconsider my decision.
I had no concrete plan on how to build my business and serve people, only a deep knowing in my heart that my life was meant for something greater than being chained to a desk working for a company I didn't believe in. I knew I was wasting my life at those awful Monday morning sales meetings where everyone sat around a table and disingenuously applauded for one another while reviewing budget numbers. I also knew that while I blamed my company for not valuing my gifts, I was the one not valuing myself by staying there and cashing the checks.
So when I told my family and girlfriend at the time about my new plan, it was largely met with crickets. Everyone urged me to create an alternate plan, find another corporate job, and build my business "slowly." My girlfriend's family sent over copies of those 1990's career books like "What Color Is Your Parachute?" for me to review and think of "Plan B."
It wasn't that they didn't want to see me happy, they all wanted me to be safe.
And this is the "either/or" mentality in a nutshell.
Either you can have financial security... OR you can have freedom. You can do work you love... OR you can earn an abundant income. But you can't have BOTH.
When I listened to that advice, progress seemed almost non-existent. Each month felt like a struggle as the small wins always seemed to be followed by a long drought of futility. Day-to-day life became difficult and making matters worse, I was surrounded by people who said "I told you so."
Three things changed my entire life last summer:
- I found a mentor who built a multi 7-figure service-oriented business from the ground up.
- I found a tribe of supportive people who valued the same things I valued.
- I learned how to change my mindset from "either/or" to "yes/and."
Meaning, I realized I can have BOTH. Yes, I can live my purpose AND earn abundantly for my service. I can open up and speak my truth AND be loved. I can live my vision for my life AND be supported.
From the realization that I could "have it all," the conversation began to shift to "who must I become and how can I serve others in a way that makes this belief my daily reality?"
Now my life's mission is helping guide others on the journey for their life.
This is why I'm so excited to invite you to enroll in my Life Amplified Coaching Program (Click HERE to apply).
This is a 3-month program designed to accelerate your results in 2018 by giving you all of the things I wish I had when I first made the decision to say YES to my purpose:
- Daily mentorship. I will walk you through daily goal setting and accountability as we make sure you stop misdirecting your energy and invest time each day on the things that matter most to you.
- A community of amazing, high-vibe people who are on the same path as you. You've probably heard the acronym TEAM, which stands for "Together everyone achieves more?" We will put that into practice in this program as we learn together, grow together, and WIN together.
- Weekly group coaching calls where I will teach you the same principles that have helped me elevate my life and business (19X over January of 2017).
- 1:1 support with me as we connect for a monthly implementation call to make sure you are consistently aligned with your goals.
