I recently posted this on Facebook, and it received such an overwhelming response that it felt important to share with you as well. It’s a short article, but a VERY important one!
The last 15 months with a baby and a 1st grader and a business and a sick mom who lives far away and…well, just life and all that comes with it…has been really hard at times.
In terms of business, there has been massive, massive growth on some levels, and on other levels I’m moving way slower than ever before. I thought my re-brand would be done and ready to go by last January. Ha! I’m hoping now for end of September. I thought my Sacred Archetype Assessment would have been ready by last December. I released it in July. I had plans for writing my book and creating some really, really huge marketing moments this last Spring. That hasn’t fully happened yet.
I’m sharing this for a couple of reasons:
1) I could have easily beaten myself up through all of this, judged myself for being lazy or too slow, compared myself to others, etc. But instead I chose to honor my pace, to honor that my business is NOT my first priority in life, to honor that I choose to make time for my children FIRST, and for my business to fit in with my life and not the other way around.
The result here has been that I feel so much more freedom and even more importantly I feel AT PEACE. I feel at peace with my peace, and I embrace that everything is unfolding exactly as it’s meant to. In the divine right time.
2) By taking things more slowly, something magical happened.
It’s true that what I planned didn’t quite happen, but instead my message got way deeper, my teachings became more powerful, my team got stronger, and…business has been flying in through the door without having to do much marketing at all. For the last 12 months straight, ALL of my programs and offerings (& I run many programs and offerings) have been full and at times with wait-lists. And over the last two weeks we ran a campaign and received over 80 applications!
Running a faster pace doesn’t mean being more successful.
I share all of this in full transparency to you so that you learn from all of this too:
Don’t judge your pace or compare it to others.
Don’t be in a fight with the commitments in your life that take you away from your business.
Be present to it all and be easy on yourself. That’s the quickest route to success.
