Growth in any area of your life is simple to obtain 

– Know the vision 

– Know the obstacles 

– Create a plan 

– Take the steps 

– Repeat on the daily.

So why, after achieving a certain level of success, do so many people have a hard time continuing to do it?

What makes some succeed and others fail at doing these simple steps consistently?

It’s what’s going on in your head and your heart that stops or slows you down.

What thoughts are preventing you from taking the action?

What feelings are coming up as you take the steps?

Understanding these two questions is fundamental in making your journey to your goals AND ENJOYING THEM WHEN YOU GET THERE!

After all, getting there really is only half of what you want… 

The MAIN thing is how you believe achieving that goal will make you feel.

Getting what you want and feeling exhausted, stressed and anxious is never on anybody’s list of life goals yet that’s the reality that so many people experience because they’ve focused on the external success and haven’t focused on the core of what they really want.   

So there you sit with your successful business unable to get any further because being where you’re at didn’t bring you the joy or fulfilment you were looking for. 

Although on a conscious level you want MORE, on a subconscious level your clever mind is protecting you from further disappointment by creating all manner of perceived limitations designed to stop you in your tracks.  From frustration to a loss of momentum or physical illness, you have an amazing and powerful mind doing exactly what it’s designed to do which is to keep you safe at all costs.

Having worked not only on myself, but with countless clients who have experienced exactly these issues, once these limitations have been uncovered and dissolved, and our efforts are refocused on healing the root cause, the path forward is incredibly clear.

Working from the inside out will bring you greater success

The irony of course, is that the solution is upside-down and inside-out to the current paradigm of thinking.

You were taught that fame and success would bring you fulfilment and joy and because you’ve always been a grade A student you did everything right so here you are with a “great life” that you’re unexpectedly dissatisfied with.

Growing your business and personal wealth is your birthright as is living in absolute abundance, but when we’re missing those feelings of safety, happiness and fulfilment, the door to the More that you envision remains stubbornly closed.

So ask yourself, what’s the goal beneath your goal?  

You’re the kind of womxn who always achieves what you put your focus to so you just need to put your focus on the right thing – a small course correction can have a massive impact.

When you work on the core of what you really want your current goals of More Income, More Impact, and More Influence will drop with unbelievable speed and ease.
