There is nothing more challenging than bringing our brave dreams to reality. And what starts as a ‘maybe that could be’ can totally become ‘wow, look at what I accomplished’ by managing your mind and building your own belief. Circumstances, not even CoVid, could dampen this client’s dreams. I want to share her story.
I’m so thankful that this client gave me permission to share her story, she will inspire you.
I have had the honor of witnessing amazing results and growth with my clients. It is one of the biggest honors I receive in being a coach. I chose 2, one for this week and next, but there are so many more to come.
I’m sharing these because I want you to see what is possible……
The first is a client who I was shocked hired me. She works in the travel industry and basically, when she hired me she was completing the last trip cancellation due to CoVid. Basically cancelling her revenue for 2020……
She could see an opportunity to plan what she had wanted all along, set up processes to support her clients’ experience, to intentionally book clients she loved, to create a supportive learning experience for her agents, to get her website and SM lined up to this new version of herself. Because she was always traveling as a natural part of her work, she had never given her business this time to work ON her business.
She got to work, even though it was scary and impossible to see when travel was going to be ‘normal’ again for all of us. By digging in and investing in her future business and planning for it a lot came up emotionally. She brought her full self to our calls and has stepped into the shoes of becoming a different business owner.
She did the work of looking at her thoughts and moving from indulging in stressful emotions and stepping into a clear, well intentioned productive business owner. Just wow my friends, I’m so frickin’ proud of her. She had all of the normal obstacles come her way and THEN SOME. She also stepped in powerfully supporting her family when they needed her without giving up on working on her business.
Before: running fast, hard, not taking time off, working 24/7 even when she was on trips in gorgeous places. Now: Making courageous decisions that honor the vision she has for her business. Collaborating with powerful partners to plan high value trips/experiences for her new ideal clients next year. Taking time to physically and mentally get restored by taking an opportunity to live in a restful place this summer. She moved from hustle to grounded action. She set boundaries so that she can serve her family without harming herself.
How? She watched her thoughts, she had her own back when she was afraid, frustrated and unsure and beating herself up. She realized what shifts she could make with her mind. She took care of the mental and physical side of being a business owner so that she is set up to run the business of her dreams in 2021. She set up a powerful morning routine that supported her, she paid attention to getting more rest and true time off instead of running on empty. She noticed what drained her and saw where there were relationships that weren’t honoring her new vision of herself. She lovingly moved on and let go.
All from giving herself the opportunity to manage her mind and work on believing in her goals. She shared her dreams out loud, she went to work. She didn’t give up. She invested in a team to do the work that she wasn’t skilled at. She learned to ask for help and realized she DID NOT have to do this work all by herself. She is watching this vision come to life.
OK I’m inspired, are you? It continues to be a miracle to me how small shifts and awareness can be such a miracle worker. The compounding effect of committing to the process of growth and investing some time in it. With a coach, with your mind and a journal, is truly Miraculous.
This client has a choice as we do every day. We can let the circumstances determine our future by thinking that life is happening TO US. OR we can look those circumstances in the eye and choose to THINK and BELIEVE on purpose that we have what it takes to move forward. Because we do. If there is a dream a goal, if you’re thinking it you just might be the one to carry it out.
I have some great questions for you…..
What are you thinking and believing is possible for next year? NAME IT!!!!
What is ONE thought, one belief about yourself that you need to LET GO of this year?
What is ONE STEP that you can take today towards this possibility?
What ROUTINE can you establish that supports this MINDSET of what’s possible?
This woman inspired me and I hope sharing her story has inspired you. I love honoring her bravery this year by being super brave in my life, reaching out for and creating what I want for my business and for my life.
