Boom! This is it. Putting it all out there for everyone to see, and experience … and judge. I will admit, as much as I have been doing the work, I still had to wrestle a bit with that little voice that wondered if it would be good enough – whether people would like it. Whether I am good enough. Will they like me?
Worrying about this is old baggage. Old stories I’m still carrying around. I mean, I’m past this now, right? But even though I know exactly what thoughts I need to be thinking in order to feel differently – to feel confident and not give a shit what anyone thinks – I still catch myself.
At moments, often before something big is about to happen, little bits and pieces of those old stories creep back in. What was different this time is that I knew exactly what to do to shift my thinking and my energy back to my confident, standing tall, ass-kicking self, and I did. So, how did I figure out what that “thing” was that was blocking me this morning and move past it?
First, I exercised. Then I spent just a few minutes meditating* (see note below) to clear my energy. Then I went eyeballs deep into a belief-busting exercise that allowed me to identify it, acknowledge it, clear it, and move on. Not so many moons ago, I would have gotten stuck in that low energy, in that unconfident, self-critical place. Today, I have method for getting unstuck that works so well and seems so obvious … well, I won’t beat myself up now for not figuring it out before because that would just wreck it. If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that I am exactly where I am meant to be right here in this moment. Had I arrived here any sooner, I wouldn’t have the benefit of the wisdom gained from all the trials and tribulations I went through to get here. Ok, maybe that’s getting a little too deep for today, but here’s my point:
ANYONE can get over that stuff. If I can do it, so can you!!
I’m so excited about sharing my authentic story with you, knowing that if it even helps just a handful of people, it will be totally worth it! And if you don’t love it, or you don’t love me, that’s totally ok. It is (I am) not for everyone.
But for those who do get it (and my current group of initial clients certainly do!), I hope you’ll join my tribe. Send me your feedback. Send me your questions. Tell me what you’re struggling with and help me shape the content that HERE + NOW provides. Because aside from the obvious business goal to make a living coaching people, I want to help as many people as possible by providing as much free content and free coaching for entrepreneurs as possible. Now is your chance to have a say in what shape that takes. Reach out: what issues do YOU want coaching on? Let’s do this together, HERE + NOW.
