Not too long ago I was at a women’s leadership luncheon, and the table topic was, “What are you resisting in your business?”
Hmmm…. As the other women shared about their resistance to having a social media strategy, being on LinkedIn, or picking up the phone to talk with prospective clients, I sat with this question.
What I realized is this: I’ve been most resistant to the pace of growth in my business. It’s just not happening fast enough!
What I also notice with this thought is that I put a TON of pressure on myself—
—to get more things done each day, attract more clients, reach my money goal, create the online course, write the book, have a rockin’ social media strategy, do videos, speak at least twice a month, and on and on.
It’s exhausting just thinking about it, much less trying to do it all!
Is this something you can relate to, too?
I then had this thought, “What if I’m EXACTLY where I need to be and there’s nothing wrong or missing? What if I can trust exactly where I am?”
Wow. That takes the pressure off!
So, I learned from this experience that my practice is to be present, show up for what’s in front of me, move forward in a way that feels joyful and enlivening to my spirit, and that THAT is enough.
Not that I don’t continue to make plans, evolve my brand, uplevel my marketing, signature talk and online presence, and get out there and speak more.
But it’s doing that from the “being” place of I’m right where I need to be. There’s nothing wrong. I’m right on track. All is well.
So that’s my message for you today… If you’re feeling the pressure of not doing enough, not being where you want to be in your business, and worried that someone else is going to “beat you to it,” then—
—pause, take a breath, and say to yourself “I’m right where I need to be. There’s nothing wrong. I’m right on track. All is well.”
Wishing you a beautiful day, and keep shining your gorgeous light!
P.S. If getting in front of WAY more ideal clients through speaking has been on your “to-do” list for awhile, let me make it easy for you!
