Do you want to know the big secret to how I became a blogger for The Huffington Post within 48 hours of setting the goal? Get out a pen and paper to take notes. This info is super high-level and complicated...
I emailed a writing sample directly to Arianna Huffington and asked her if I could join the team.
I've recently co-authored a new book that will be released this Summer (I'm so excited to share more details with you in the coming weeks). Want to know the complicated personal growth formula I implemented to make it happen?
I emailed the publisher and pitched her on why I'd be a great addition to the project.
That's literally it.
Don't get me wrong, I wasn't always so bold when it came to asking for what I wanted. I used to be a person who believed I needed a "lucky break." I thought I could leave my old career and start coaching if I won the lottery. Even after I took the leap to start my business (without the Powerball jackpot as a safety net), I figured I had to keep posting blogs to my website until somebody came along, "discovered" me, and offered me a bigger platform to reach more people.
Back then, I had my own limiting belief which told me I wasn't good enough to build a thriving business on my own. I waited for people and things outside of myself to make it happen for me.
When I couldn't grow my mailing list beyond 70 people, I got tired of waiting and took charge of my own destiny.
I see the same limiting belief which kept my business stagnant keep my clients from elevating their life. Earlier today, I talked a client who has worked through the first 2 C's of change I talked about yesterday. She had the courage to invest in coaching and we worked together to find clarity about how growing up with a cold, unaffectionate mother made her afraid to ask for what she wanted.
However, her fear of taking contrasting action was keeping her stuck. She told me she was waiting for the skies to open and the angels to show up and create a "miracle" in her life. Waiting on your higher power to fix your life is the same thing as procrastinating. Life supports what supports life. When we take a step towards our purpose, the Universe takes 3 steps back towards us.
I asked her about another time in her life she made a massive transformation and got sober after years of drinking. A recovering alcoholic girlfriend had asked her for months to get help to no avail. Eventually, the girlfriend stopped coming around and my client kept drinking.
Everything changed one Sunday afternoon. After a weekend of binging, she woke up feeling like garbage. The years of abusing herself had worn thin and she had the "moment of clarity." It was time to get sober.
Within a minute of setting this intention, her front door opened without so much as a knock. As if on cue, her friend walked in and asked "Are you ready?" She then helped my client get dressed, and took her immediately to an AA meeting. My client said she felt as if something left her body that day and it became easy to let go of the alcohol.
She is correct when she describes the story as a "miracle." However, in giving all the credit to The Universe and her friend, she was overlooking her own role in the transformation.
The Universe can't take from us what we're unwilling to let go of. Her girlfriend tried for years to help her sober up with no success. Things could only improve when my client made a committed decision to change. From there, the Universe could do its thing and create a path. However, my client served as the catalyst.
She was the miracle. The Universe simply followed her lead.
With a new understanding that she was and is the decider for her life, we created new intentions this week for her to up her self-care game and I'm optimistic we have created a foundation for her to take ownership of her life and happiness.
What does this have to do with you?
It demonstrates how our limiting beliefs can be complicated and multi-layered. We make everyone else's needs more important than our own, then expect God/The Universe/A therapist/Prescription/Life coach to take the wheel and create a change while we ride shotgun.
We avoid doing the work because we feel powerless to design the life we want... then we complain we aren't getting results.
You are the miracle waiting to unfold in your life. You will experience better outcomes when you learn how to make more empowered choices.
This is why I've created the new "Belief Busters" 4-week Coaching Program-- To help you begin your path to consciously creating the life you want and deserve.
During this program, I will help you uncover the cobweb beliefs that are keeping you from taking action.
But let's be honest, any coach or therapist can "diagnose" you and tell you you're stuck. My work is to help you understand WHY you are hanging onto these outdated beliefs that don't serve you. I will show you how these beliefs have been meeting your fundamental emotional needs (albeit in the least empowering way possible.) Think about it, if your story is meeting a need, why would you let go of it?
From there, we'll destroy the outdated beliefs and create a new plan to meet your needs in ways that energize you and push you closer to your goals.
When you sign up for the Belief Busters Program, you get:
- 4 Powerful private coaching sessions filled with "A-Ha moments" and breakthroughs ($880 value)
- 5 weeks of Unlimited support via text/email (Value: Priceless)
- 15 minute "check-in" phone calls in between sessions. Ever left a therapy session, had a challenge pop up, and had to wait a week to discuss how to handle it? This gives you ongoing support to help you stay on your path and create rapid transformation ($220 value).
- A 2-hour BONUS VIP intensive session (can be redeemed anytime in the next 6 months-- $440 Value)
- Lifetime access to my meditation library. These are the same meditations I use on a daily basis as part of my self-care routine ($60 value)
And if you invest before 7pm EST tomorrow, you get $1600 in coaching value for a one-time investment of $897.
I am so excited for the opportunity to be your mentor and cheerleader as you overcome your blocks, take back your power, and design a life you feel excited and passionate about.
But in order to change your results, you have to change your approach.
