Really, it does not need to be hard. I recently realized that I was trying to make things difficult, and more complicated then they needed to be instead of allowing things to happen. I was trying to control too much. We all do this from time to time, some more than others. This is not the first time that I have realized that I was doing this, but it is the first time I got this new level of awareness as to the WHY? Which I think is critical to actually changing it and truly shifting the energy around it.
You see, what I realized was that I was in this proving energy, I have been in this proving energy for a while, it started when I was quiet young and I overheard my parents talking about how they thought as soon as I was old enough to drop out of school I would, well, let me tell you, I heard that and said to myself, oh yeah, watch me. I buckled down and graduated at the top of my class and later went on to earn a BS in Math, Computer Science, Accounting and on and on and on. Everything I did was motivated by people telling me I could not do it. Can you relate?
If this is ringing true for you I want you to continue reading because, the truth is this can only take you so far. I know for myself, I just got this new awareness around the fact that I was “trying” to prove that things had to be difficult. You see I was in this proving energy of, no, it cant be that easy, although deep down inside I know it really it is that easy and can be that easy.
It simply comes down to choice. You get to decide if life is going to be easy or if it is going to be hard. I know that may sound crazy especially if you look around at your outside circumstance and you think, yeah, sure, easy for you to say Kim. Trust me, I get it, I have been in your shoes, the bills are piling up on your desk, client payments are late, you haven’t landed a new client in weeks…or months, the kids are sick, you are fighting with your spouse, the heat isn’t working (and its 10 degrees outside) you’ve got $10 bucks in your checking account, rent is due at the end of the month and you think “I gotta make something happen, NOW”.
Truth be told, it really can be easy, but first you need to decide that it can be easy, you need to make a decision. Like everything else in life, nothing happens until you make the decision. Are you ready to decide today to allow the easy flow of life? Are you ready to live full throttle and create the life and business you were meant to live by fully engaging in life?
It really is as easy as making the decision, everything else falls into place once you decide.
Step 1 – Decide what you want and WHY? The key is really to connect to whatever it is that you desire, from a deeply emotional place, not just because someone says you should want it.
Step 2 – What are you willing to do for it? Early on I used to make the mistake of saying I would do whatever it takes, big mistake, if you are willing to do whatever it takes, trust me, you will be doing whatever it takes, and the truth is, it does not have to be that hard, remember, easy is a choice, so what are you willing to do for it, put some boundaries in place.
Step 3 – Show up and act as if you already have what you want, and take inspired action, once you are clear on what you want and why, and you have put some boundaries in place as to what you are willing to do for it, now you gotta get into action, action moves things from the ether’s into our physical realm, without action, much never really changes. The key is to take inspired action, and that this action is going to cause you to grow, so its going to be uncomfortable for you to do it, that’s the point, if you could keep doing the same thing and get a different result then we would all have what we want but that’s not the way it works so whatever action it is that you are inspired to take, make sure it stretches you outside of your comfort zone. Different action = different result!
If you are ready to take a new action and work with a coach who has been there done that, then let’s talk. You can learn more about working with me here, you can check out our programs here and when you are ready click here to set up a conversation to see how I can help you.
Now, get into action to create some new results!
hey, I’m Kim + I am ridiculously passionate about helping you to work smarter and not harder + to realize how freaking amazing you actually are, exactly as you are and how easy business really can be when you are in alignment + simplify + add systems to organize your business + plan your business growth. I’ve been geeking out about online business, online marketing + systems + personal development + all that stuff since I created my first business back in 2006 + sold it.
Would you like to streamline and simplify your business operations to free up more of your time and brainpower, and to clear the decks for more income—in short, to work less and be less exhausted, while making more money and profit! because bringing in the money isn’t really fun when the majority of it flies out the door just as fast if not faster than you created it! I know, I’ve been there, don’t that and got the t-shirt, it’s no fun!
This whole business owner thing is not for the faint of heart, there is a reason why most businesses fail!
While the road to burnout doesn’t look the same for everyone on it there are some similarities you typically experience on this path!
- You’re always in the weeds of your business
- You don’t have efficient systems and processes (or maybe none at all)
- You aren’t delegating effectively
- You can’t take time off
- You’re trying to do too many things at once + wearing all the hats
It’s exhausting just thinking about it! But there’s a way off the hamster wheel!
If you’re overwhelmed, overworked, stressed out, and worried that if you take time off the bottom will fall out from beneath you and your business will fall apart.
Then, you are in the right place my friend, been there, done that, got the tee-shirt and I’d love to support you in ending the cycle!
