What I discovered was quite a shock and it saddened me. Did you know that 8 out of 10 new businesses fail within 18 months? With all the hard work, foundation laying, marketing, and dreaming about what is possible, entrepreneurs are unable to thrive. They’re doing all the right things, and are still not seeing results.
If you are a heart centered business owner wanting to make a difference in the world, and are finding yourself struggling, I’ll tell you the truth here – it’s NOT because you are not trying. You’re not lazy, lack vision or don’t have the right skills. Chances are, you have unconscious beliefs that are steering your business.
You are a product of all your life experiences. You have picked up some great strategies for survival as a human being – such as not speaking up for yourself, hiding your gifts, even procrastinating, and these strategies served you well, they got you here and helped you in some way but they are now holding you back from the very thing you want.
Last week’s message was about risks and why you sometimes do not go for what matters most to you. This week I invite you to take a breath and love the part of yourself that has stopped you from taking action. I know this can sound counter intuitive. But, if you want to move forward in your business, it can help for you to honor the part that has slowed you down.
It can be so easy to beat yourself up for what you think you “should” be doing. What if you took some time to actually bless yourself for the care you have given to yourself? I believe this will free some vital energy up and help you relax, so that you can then move forward.
In my eBook, “How to Tame Your Inner Critic”, there is a great exercise that guides you to honor this part and then help this part change it’s strategies so it serves you in the way you want now.
It is a free eBook and you can pick it up to the right. I would love to hear how it helps so let me know what happens after your do the exercise.
To Your Vision Being Manifested,
PS: The last few emails had big technical issues and many of you did not get them. They are posted here and you can see them. I do not want you to miss out on some really cool news.
