I’m not clairvoyant but…
I’ve never thought of myself as clairvoyant—that’s woo woo stuff. I didn’t know what the future would hold, but I now have conviction that I can create anything I want and I know you can too.
Growing up I was always great with kids. I connected with them easily and just loved them. In high school, I started my own swimming business and taught children how to swim in my parents’ backyard (and it was a pretty successful business).
It was super awesome! I had so much fun with the kiddos and it was so rewarding teaching them a life-long skill.
Back then, I had a hazy picture of my future— I’d have a good job, live in a nice home, be married to a great guy and have two or three kids. I guess I imagined my life similar to the life of my parents’. My mom was a teacher, my dad an engineer and I even thought I might go into teaching too, because I loved kids so much and knew I could be a great teacher.
Even though I was running my own swim business, I didn’t expect to be a business owner, which is funny, because it now seems to be so ingrained in me.
My dad even said to me the other day that he never imagined that I’d be so successful in business, let alone be teaching others to make a lot of money and grow their own businesses. He didn’t think it interested me. Frankly, he didn’t think I’d be good at it.
I got into business because I liked having options. I didn’t like giving my hard earned money to “the man,” and I was passionate about helping people, so that’s how it all unfolded.
My life hasn’t turned out as planned. It has turned out way better.
I have an amazing business, the best clients in the world, the most wonderful husband and daughter and healthy family and friends who I absolutely adore.
I don’t have everything I want, of course, but I’m so grateful for what I do have.
Right now I’m going through an IVF (in vitro fertilization) cycle. My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for over 4 years (my daughter is my step-daughter, so I’ve never been pregnant).
The cool thing is… I’m not worried about it at all. I know it’s going to work. And I’m so grateful everyday that there’s this incredible technology that is giving us a chance to have a baby.
I easily could have been frustrated, or depressed, or been feeling sorry for myself, thinking… “Why me?!?!” But I’m not.
I’m excited. I’m grateful. I have faith that it will happen. I believe I can make it happen with what my husband and I call “mind bullets.” (Meaning with the power of our minds)
I’m writing this, because I want to remind you that you can create the life you want. I’ve been listening to a lot of law of attraction stuff lately and I totally believe that we create everything we have (or don’t have).
Maybe I wasn’t ready to have my baby (or babies) yet. I actually believe that I had to “birth” my FEMM Mentorship program first. Now that it has taken off, I know my babies are on their way. Woo woo stuff, like the law of attraction works. But… it’s not just about “thinking and growing rich.”
Here’s the formula that works:
- Work Your Ass Off
- Step Outside Your Comfort Zone
- Model What Works
- Be 100% Committed
Seriously, you still have to work hard. You can work smarter, so the hard work pays off and gives you the results you want, but you still got to put in time and energy. You can optimize and leverage your time, so you have more of it. You can systematize your practices. You can take a hell of a lot of shortcuts (if you have the right mentor and right systems), but you still have to work hard. It’s true. There’s no such thing as a free lunch.
This is even more important than working hard. You have to take risks. You have to put yourself out there. You have to take IMPERFECT action. Last night I did a Facebook Live. I wasn’t wearing makeup. I hadn’t even brushed my hair! I didn’t know what I was going to say. I just thought, “I need to put myself out there and focus on helping people.” It’s not about you. It’s about the people who need your help. Step outside your comfort zone so you can help more people.
Don’t reinvent the wheel (see, I didn’t even use a new quote, that’s how much I’m not reinventing the wheel). Successful people leave clues. Implement systems that work. Get help from people who have the success you want. Do what has already been tested and has worked. If you want to make money fast, learn from someone who has made money fast and helped others do the same. Take the shortcuts, but not because you’re lazy! Don’t be lazy. Just follow systems that give you a faster result.
If you’re committed, you don’t make excuses. You don’t complain about why something isn’t working. You take action. You get help. You take risks. You do whatever it takes. If you’re not 100% committed, go get a job. Entrepreneurship is not for the faint of heart.
Yep, I said it. Over the last 18 months, I’ve been working my ass off. It was go-go-go, all the time. And it worked. I’m happy and very proud of what I created. But I wasn’t taking care of myself. I was working non-stop. And I’m glad I did. That’s what it took to get me where I am today. However, over the last 6 weeks, I’ve been meditating everyday. I’ve slowed down. I stopped pushing and started allowing. And last weekend, I had my most lucrative event ever! And this month will be my best financial month to date in my life. Take at least 20 minutes a day to meditate. I just listen to a 35 min guided sleep meditation at night and a 9 minute Abraham Hicks morning meditation every day. For me, that was an easy way to start.
