I’ve been thinking about this for a couple of weeks now, and every time I sat down to write about it, all of my resistance came up full force.
By nature, I am an extreme action taker. A doer. Type-A. Go-getter. Achiever. To do list maker.
And I spent three years of my coaching career making myself wrong for that.
Spending session after session with coach after coach trying to figure out WHY, and what the hell was wrong with me that I loved DOING so much.
It’s not about what you’re doing, it’s about who you’re being.
I still wholeheartedly agree with that, as my belief is, and what I know to actually be TRUE is, that who we are being, our mindset, our thoughts, our energy, are HUGE and large indication of what youre results are going to be.
But, here’s the newsflash for you: YOU HAVE TO TAKE ACTION (AND MASSIVE ACTION AT THAT) TO GET THE RESULTS YOU ARE GOING FOR.
So many of you are sitting on your couch, day in day out, meditating, journaling, speaking things into existence, reading, learning, taking bubble baths and naps and playing checkers with your cat.
Which is ALL fine and good, except for this:
You aren’t doing the fucking work.
When I used to hear that I would cringe.
I was anti-hustle for so long and spent an entire year of my business NOT taking any massive for the bullshit reasons I would give myself such as:
“I can just focus on it enough and it will just come to me.”
“I’m not in alignment with that.”
“I shouldn’t have to work hard for it.”
Now check it out - I wholeheartedly believe that your business WILL take off when you run it from ease and flow. I am NOT a supporter of burning out your adrenals and grinding shit out from struggle and lack because you think you have to prove something to get ahead.
BUT TOO MANY OF YOU ARE NOT GETTING THE RESULTS THAT YOU WANT BECAUSE YOU ARE SHY-ING AWAY FROM THE ACTION YOU NEED TO TAKE, AND USING EASE AND FLOW AS AN EXCUSE.
Listen - it’s not about WHAT you do, but it’s that you are taking the action that feels in alignment for you (even if it’s scary, uncomfortable, and you have massive resistance to it).
It’s about really getting how “manifestation” works - that you actually HAVE to take action to bring things from the vibrational level to the physical level.
If you read Think and Grow Rich, or The Science of Getting Rich, or Working With the Law, you will hear them all saying the same thing. ACTION IS REQUIRED.
So do you want to be comfortable? Or do you want to have your dreams and desires come true?
Because you CAN take massive action, create kickass results, AND at the same time enjoy the freedom and flow that comes from living an abundant life.
But so many of you are afraid of doing the work, that you’ll never get there.
Every single month I’ve had jumps in my income, huge increases in my following, and successful launches were the months that I did the inner work (mindset first and foremost is what will get you to where you want to go) and then got really clear on what actions I felt inspired to take from the goals that I distinguished were important to me, and then committed to those actions DAILY, even when it felt hard, I didn’t wanna, it was late, I was tired, and all the other reasons I could come up with.
It’s not grinding. It’s not pushing. It’s not burning out.
It’s called FEELING THE RESISTANCE AND DOING IT ANYWAY BECAUSE YOUR RESISTANCE IS THE ONLY THING IN THE WAY.
I want you to start getting serious about your goals and treating them like the big deal that they are.
I want you to stop hiding behind “ease and flow”.
I want you to step outside your comfort zone and really start KICKING SOME ASS.
I want you to set high goals, proudly, and then work towards them like your life depends on it. Not because you don’t think you’re good enough until you hit that goal, but because that goal is what you are alive for.
This is what brings you from “dreamer” status to actually living it.
