So often I hear clients speak of what they’d like to do when they finally pluck up the courage.
‘I’ll do it when I feel brave,’ they say
‘I just need to do one more training course before I’ll be ready,’ they say
‘I need a few more months/years to perfect things before I do it,’ they say
Meanwhile, the world shifts on its axis and the seasons change.
The moon rises and falls and a year passes.
Nothing has changed in their lives or businesses, the way they hoped it would.
The courage hasn’t shown up yet and they are still waiting for the right time to ‘exercise it’.
The truth is that courage is like a muscle.
It needs regular exercise in order to stay strong and to grow.
True leaders understand this.
Leaders have made an important decision to flex the muscles of courage, to keep them strong and supple. They have stared down the barrel of some of their greatest fears. Fears like ‘what if I don’t make it in my business?’ ‘what if I am humiliated?’ ‘What if my book doesn’t sell after all the work I’ve put into it?’ ‘what if no one signs up for my services?’
They’ve faced their fears, and worse. Then they’ve made an important decision to leap.
To commit to their business, boots and all.
I understand what this feels like.
Taking a quantum leap when I started my coaching business took every bit of courage I had. I had no back door. I was responsible for my two sons and needed to make sure they were going to be ok when I took the leap. I didn’t have enough courage to throw myself into my business full-time so I held onto a bridging job for a while. A long while. Longer than I needed to.
It wasn’t until I learnt that courage comes from taking brave, warrior-like action that I let go and made a decision to pour my heart into my business. I had no clue how I was going to support my children if it didn’t work. I had some lean weeks and tons of self doubt.
It paid off, in greater ways than I could have imagined.
Today I have a business that I love with all my heart.
My coaching business surprises, delights, nourishes, ignites and uplifts me every day.
My clients are the kind of women who constantly inspire, delight, uplift and ignite the world with their work. They have a legacy to leave and they’re determined as heck to make sure they leave their eco-print and heart-markers on the planet through their services.
They are true warrior goddesses in business. I can’t think of anything I’d like to do more than serve them. It is through their work in the world that I feel like I’m making a difference.
So back to you and your courage.
How do you know when you’re being called to action?
You know, because you know. You’ve been called to act on behalf of your calling for such a long time, and perhaps you’ve become accustomed to saying no. The heroine usually refuses the call because she doesn’t believe that she has what it takes to see it through.
I know you have got what it takes.
Or perhaps you heard the call and embarked on your business adventure and have somehow found yourself feeling scared again, because the next level is awaiting you?
I know you have got what it takes.
I know, because you are just like me. You wouldn’t be here if you weren’t.
Your mission is a lot like mine too – it’s to leave a legacy. It’s to leave the world a better place through your actions in your business. It’s to live a fearless life using the might of your own heart.
That doesn’t mean you don’t get scared from time to time, we all do.
It means that you are exercising your muscle of courage regularly – doing high and medium risk things in your business that stretch you beyond your comfort zone every day. Some of these things give you the heebeejeebees. You know what? If you don’t feel the heebeejeebees a couple of times a month, your business won’t grow.
I could never have come to a place where I love my business so much if I hadn’t had the coaches and the support I needed to face my own personal heebeejeebees. They’re different for all of us. I love getting in front of people to speak – some people don’t.
I love getting in front of clients and having discovery sessions – some people don’t.
I love teaching workshops – some people don’t.
I get the total heebeejeebees thinking about approaching new people to partner with (I’m easily intimidated). I also get the heebeejeebees when it comes to any kind of photography, videography or moving footage. (If my coach hadn’t given me the JFDI policy, just f’n do it, I would never have had my photos done or made any videos). The more I go towards those fears, the more my business and my confidence has grown.
I’ve condensed everything I’ve learnt into my one:one coaching program – Heart Your Business. I’ve wasted a lot of time, energy and money over my years in business (including over 7 years in my international yoga workshop and teaching business during which I had no list and no online presence and still managed to survive through the power of self-belief and sheer determination – not a recommended strategy by the way, but I learnt a ton about what makes a successful and sustainable service based business along the way). I’ve included everything I’ve learnt through my coaching diploma, business certification and through sheer sweat and gruel setting up my own coaching business online. I developed Heart Your Business for you if you are an aware and heart-centred intelligent woman and you already have an existing service-based business and have lost some love and a little of your courage. You need to get your business mojo on. Right now.
This 6 month program will show you how to fall in love with your business again, for more time, energy, sustainability and the all important one – abundance.
If this calls you, and you’re ready to face your heebeejeebees so you can find your crazy, passion-fuelled place amongst the visionary leaders of this world, you belong with me.
