Stepping Into Your Power – How To Move Yourself From A to B!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
woman_entrepreneur_v0.1Whether you’ve made resolutions or not, the New Year really is a great opportunity to mentally turn a page, and step into a new you…a more powerful you.

However, when we think of doing something new, there can be a problem, can’t there…because very often, although we know what to do to get new & better results intellectually, and the possibilities excite us, somehow, we don’t take the action that will get us from A to B…sometimes it’s disempowering habits that stop us, sometimes it’s lack of confidence…

You see, we’ve got to believe that its possible for us…we’ve got to create that certainty. If there’s a lot of negative stuff going on in the back of our minds, it will hold us back if we don’t know how to change the way we think…

So first, we need to get clear about who we are…how do you want to show up in your life and your business, decide on your values, and stick to them. Getting really clear about who you are creates feelings of certainty…and certainty is the Holy Grail. Certainty is a state that allows you to take the action required for your success…

So how do you create certainty for something you’ve never done before? You see, this is what we need to do as entrepreneurs…we have to take the unknown and make it certain…you need to make it so there’s no question you’re going to do it…

I have found that the first step to creating feelings of certainty is discovering your heart-felt purpose…decide who you want to be in this world…and then visualise your certain future & connect everything that you feel you ‘should’ do, with that bigger purpose…

You see, when you can view your day-to-day tasks & goals (especially the ones that scare you) as a really small part of the bigger, exciting and profound purpose you have for your life…like a small piece of the jigsaw puzzle that’s required to complete the much bigger picture for your life…then these little individual pieces – theses small tasks – don’t seem so significant and hence, don’t seem so scary anymore…

Plus, if you’re prepared to take the time to learn what you need to learn…to master each individual piece, and if you can accept that imperfection is just part of the journey…then I believe there’s nothing you can’t achieve.

So here are four important elements which I have found have a big effect on my mindset. They are what I believe are the cornerstone to ensuring I can move myself forward every time I feel fear. Here they are…

1. Recognise your passions and values:

Understanding your own identity…who you want to be in this world…and perhaps who you definitely DON’T want to be…which qualities of yours you want to express…and how you want to be perceived is an incredibly important foundation…for taking action.

Get certain about who you are.

Get clear about your big purpose in life. Make it so exciting to you that there’s literally no turning back…

I have had a vision that consistently is at the back of my mind…and it’s BIG…it feels empowering….it feels exciting…it’s to do with adventure, growth and contribution…and I know that it feels like purpose…I’ve chosen my business as my vehicle, and this purpose I feel gives me no choice but to power forward through the obstacles…through my fears…because I know I have to, to get where I feel compelled to go…

And you have a passion in you…what is it that makes you light up?…what inspires you? What do you want to contribute to this world?
I feel sure that being clear on my big vision for my life…my mission…this is a huge part of what gives me the courage to get up and do things that I’d rather not!

Tony Robbins talks about having your ‘Global Solution’ … whatever you are feeling, find something that you value more…something bigger that means more to you than avoiding your fear…the nerves may still be there, but it gives you the ability to hold course, rather than running in fear…a new determination to find a way…the ability to step into your fear…to take a deep breath and just do it!

2. Know your ‘why’…who needs you to do this?…

If there’s one thing in this world that gets me to do things I wouldn’t dream of doing…whether it’s getting rid of a spider from the bath, going on a roller coaster, or going full-out to earn more income…for me, I’d do anything for my kids…

And I bet all of you with children feel the same…or perhaps you’d do what it takes for your partner, or your parents or your best friend…or for your charity…

We would do things for others that we would never do for ourselves! So if you can create your ‘why’ – why you must do this – around a passion to help others in some way, then your determination and courage steps up a whole new level.

Then use it! Relate your big ‘why’ to the task in hand…how is this task necessary for you to help your kids…think about how you may perhaps be letting them down or taking away a piece of their happiness if you don’t find the courage to do this…

Thinking about the example you want to set for your children…or how you want to make your parents or your partner proud…the role model you want to be…when you think about it now…what inner resources of energy and raw courage does that allow you to tap into?

As I say – use it!

3. Prepare!

To us perfectionists, (if you’re with me here!)…it seems like it must be so wonderful to be a ‘fly by the seat of your pants’ type of guy or girl…

We imagine that the people who are good at public speaking or anything else to that matter, were just born that way!
But guess what, most of them weren’t – I know – I’ve asked!
So your next key to success and conquering your fears has to be ‘preparation’…

The people who are really good at anything have been where you are now…it’s just that they made a start & they made the effort to get good – you know this!…they prepared and practiced until they finally became good at it…and it became easy to them…so at the start, learn what you need to learn, and then prepare & practice as much as you can.

When you take the time to PREPARE, you give yourself the best chance of success! And then, once you’ve had some success your whole mindset will change for the better…until one day, you’ll realise it’s become easy…but don’t fall at the first hurdle…ensure that you’ve prepared so you’re giving yourself the best chance of initial success…

4. And finally, Get the perspective and focus that you need

We need to consciously change our focus from disempowering scary questions & thoughts to something better…

Keep searching your mind until you find the thought…or the belief…or the perspective that allows you to feel better…you’ll know when you’ve found it because you’ll feel yourself relax…then consciously make the effort to stick with that thought…

Whatever task you’re taking on, perhaps the best thing you can do, is simply ask yourself some better questions…

When you think about the thing you need to do, don’t ask

“what could go wrong?” , “will I fail?”, “will people think I’m rubbish?”

Instead take conscious control and ask yourself…

“What’s good about this?”

“How will this benefit me in the future?”

“How much further forward will I be once it’s complete?”

“How will this help me become who I want to be?”

“Even if it doesn’t go to plan, will this even matter in a months time?!”

Change your perspective and focus through asking yourself empowering questions.

And change what things ‘mean’ to you…

Your job is to consciously find & choose the meanings that empower you…that change you from feeling ‘bad’ to feeling ‘good’…

And If you have a bigger purpose, as I discussed earlier…seeing a different meaning becomes so much easier…your current task is just a small part of the process of getting from A to B…no big deal….that was just a small part…so if it doesn’t go completely to plan…it doesn’t matter – just try again…or try something different…NO BIG DEAL.

So from today, recognise that you are a strong, powerful woman. That you can make a difference and that you don’t need to be perfect, because nobody is. Just be YOU and inspire others through that fact. Make COURAGE your top value for your life – and then live it!

To Your Success in 2015!  I believe in you!

Become the Go-to Girl & See Your Success Soar!

TO HELP (1)When we start out in our own business it can be easy to become distracted.

We start with a plan, but then we read or hear what others are doing and we worry that we are not doing that too…I know, I’ve been in that position many, many times…

We get pulled this way and that, worrying that our own ideas were perhaps not good enough…that perhaps we should instead follow the herd…

But indecision does not a successful woman make…

So here’s my advice to you….

Firstly, when you have an idea for your business that you love…a grand plan…and you’ve researched it, got advice on it and feel confident that it is viable and has the real potential to be profitable…

Once you have created a written plan that you feel confident will get you where you want to go and earn the income you wish to earn, then stick to it…see it through – all the way…

Learn what you need to learn, do what you need to do, but execute each step of the plan day by day…

Do not get distracted by what others are doing…hold your own course…

Do not be persuaded by other people’s agendas unless they will help you achieve yours…

Remember you have a limited number of hours each day, so use them wisely.

We are all different and have different skills and different qualities to offer. YOU are the best judge of what is right for you.

Secondly, remember who you set out to be…the mission for you and your business…

Don’t spread yourself too thin. If you try to be somebody to everybody, you’ll end up being nobody. Chose who you want to be.

Become an expert in one thing. Be the go-to-girl in that one thing. Build your reputation. Get people to know, like and trust you for that one thing.

“It is those who concentrate on but one thing at a time who advance in this world. The great man or woman is the one who never steps outside his or her specialty or foolishly dissipates his or her individuality.” – Og Mandino

Don’t try to be a Jack of all Trades. Get known for your area of expertise, so that people can be clear about what you can offer them. Be the expert they turn to.

Don’t worry that you don’t know everything – nobody knows everything…and you don’t need to know everything for your success. Just get very good at YOUR one thing.

Be seen as the expert and  grow your business…become the go-to girl and see your business soar!

To Your Success!
