Success Mindset

MOTIVATING YOURSELF TO DO WHAT MATTERS

Let’s talk about the part of you which has no energy or drive to do any of it.

That sinking little bit inside of you which, when you sit down at the computer to do your work, TRULY and absolutely seems to feel that no. I can’t.

Your energy is low, your willpower non-existent, you’ve got NO snap, no crackle, baby?

You’ve got no pop.

And so you drift onto Facebook … float back over to your email … look at your task list and sigh. Why does everything feel so BLEUGH? There’s not a single thing on there you can even CONSIDER even-ing with! You jump on over to Instagram, maybe the meaning of life is there today?! No, but look at those cute personalised necklaces, let me just snap a screenshot of them for later. (As if you’re ever going to go through all the random shit you screenshot each day!).

Back to the task list.
Back to staring at the blank screen.
Back to the ever-weightier heaviness of once again allowing another moment to pass, and then another, in which you do not do what you are meant to do, and thus by definition are once more failing to BE who you are meant to be.

Inevitably, the pressure of the NOT doing and of the tremendous effort it feels it would take to START doing (never mind continue, GOD) is too much and so once again you turn away,

and leave.

Telling yourself a story of how you’re going to stay up late tonight and get on top of it all, no really!

Or how you’re going to get up early tomorrow morning and become THAT person, just watch me!

But already know that even if that becomes true, and somehow this is the day you flick the damn switch and stop letting EXCUSES rule you rather than purpose, then right now you STILL have to live with the contraction and sinking-ness of not doing what you’re meant to freakin’ do!

All of which is of course an EXCELLENT recipe for leading yourself the remainder of the day down the path of sabotage, bingeing, escapism in some form, anything to avoid having to sit with the uncomfortable reality that in spite of all your bullshit you COULD have, and that had you have you definitely WOULD have felt better than you do now! And possibly even fully expanded, and flipped into flow!

Look, obviously the only reason I can write about all of this so knowledgeably is that I can relate to every single little bit of it, and I’ve been there! Too many times to count, staring down the barrel of time stretching endlessly ahead of me (or even for 30 minutes ahead of me lol, which is definitely still enough to ACCOMPLISH, and move forward), and feeling like it’s all.just.TOO too much, and that I can’t, and so then I don’t.

I’ll tell ya though –

Not in the history of my entire life can I remember a time when I was so happy I flaked out on doing my soul work, and when I say soul work? I’m including the suck-it-up-bitch bits that absolutely do NOT feel like soul work or anything close to flow, but yet which lead you there, and yet which, when you do ’em, result in you GETTING TO WHERE YOU WANT TO GO AND BEING WHO YOU’RE MEANT TO BE.

So really the whole thing is as simple as this – !

START.

Put pen to bloody paper and START.

Put on your gym shoes and START.

Begin to type out the piece of content you’re avoiding and START.

Open up a fresh file for that marketing piece you KNOW you gotta get on with and START.

Pick a random freakin’ task off the list and START.

Can we make it more complicated than this? Sure, if you like. We can talk about when is the best time of day for you to be creative or in flow, and what are all the moving parts which allow for that, and whether each little or big thing you’re telling yourself to do is really from soul or not, and what the perfect fucking lighting is for your melatonin to be appropriately stimulated never mind your videos to look next level fuck yes, and whether or not a vestal virgin should have to come down from heaven above and present to you a scroll from God himself to tell you it’s time and on and on and on, ad infinitum, and you know what?!

Not saying some of that stuff is not relevant.

But, in the moment.
In the now.
In the space where you stare at the blank screen and decide whether to do the damn thing anyway (and you KNOW I mean the needle moving shit, not just the list and email re-organisation), in the end it’s VERY black and white.

You either took action.
Took that first step.
CREATED a damn spark, however small, where there was none.

Or you gave in, once more, to your bullshit.

The thing with having a personal policy around being the person who STARTS, and who does so consistently, regardless of emotion of the moment, and also without any rules that it has to ‘be’ anything, i.e. a person who just trusts in the big picture and the faith side of it, is that you will also, inevitably, become a person who ACCOMPLISHES.

Will you finish everything you begin? Of course not!

And nor is that ever the idea. In fact, one of the most important traits of a successful person is that they are EXCELLENT at failing to follow through at times.

So no, you won’t finish everything just ’cause you started.

But will you get a hella lot more done at creating the life that’s available for you and that you were born for, because you choose to be the person who mostly ALWAYS begins?

Are you also very very likely to, with time, plant the habit of starting and following through in certain areas so nice and deep that it becomes automated, something you barely even have to think about, just ‘who you are’?

Yes.

In simple terms, YES.

So when you don’t feel like it,

When you can’t seem to summon the motivation from anywhere.

When you’re buying into a story that your energy is too low right now, you’re sinking, you’re fading, and obviously you need to go rest, distract, cop out, just ask yourself –

Today do I wish to further strengthen the neurological pathways that lead to me being a person to whom success and upleveling is CODED IN, and you couldn’t turn that shit off if you tried?

Or do I want to weaken them?

The thing is, it IS human nature to try and wriggle out, be led be resistance and fear, and so on, but the thing beyond the thing is?

You have power beyond just the human.

And all you gotta do to claim it?

Be the God damn person who starts.

Remember –

Life is Now. Press Play!

PS.

I’m excited to announce my Flow-Led Millionaire Private Client Mastermind Days are back, happening this August (PM me for full deets!) 

Warning! This Mastermind will require you to get TF over your hang-ups around:

* Automated income

* Being seen more, and more boldly

* Adding layers upon layers upon layers of more SELLING

* Ruthless repurposing and re-selling

* Structure, systems, process

* Building a cash machine which pays you on repeat regardless of whether YOU are grinding your fingers to the bone to get it working!

Requirements:

You have an existing business which makes money, delivers a fabulous product or service (or multiple of!) which helps people, you know who you are and who you’re here to serve (while always welcoming deeper clarity!), and you have a proven track record for getting results to those people … even if it’s on a scale, so far, which, frankly, you consider outrageous. Since you know you’re here to do insanely big work in the world!

Oh, speaking of which – you know you’re here to do insanely big work in the world! And you’re ready to put the wheels on that NOW, and see your revenue – your growth of soulmate audience – your soul-led result-gettin’ systems – and all in all your own badassery – explode, stat!

You’re not afraid of doing the damn work (duh),

but you also know that there’s a simpler way, a more flow way, a more YOU way.

And you’re ready to get down to the nitty gritty of that now, and then roll it out like the take no prisoners mofo you are.

All with me – secret counsel to the worlds most elite game-changers, leaders, and revolutionaries – supporting you to know exactly what to do,

and exactly how to do it,

so you make MORE money,

reach MORE (of the right people),

the YOU way,

having more fun and flow than you ever dreamed possible,

and finally knowing you’re all in on you,

Now!

What you get out of this time together is simple:

* Identified opportunities for money-makin’ – minimum 3, up to 10+ (this is normal in these conversations with me)

* Specific to you simple soulmate audience growth strategy, which you can roll out right away, and will often involve only ‘tweaks’ rather than having to DO anything dramatically extra

* Confidence and inner tools as well as practical steps for improving / adding to / setting up (depending where you’re at) your automated income / funnels 

* Personalised (to your personality / style / lifestyle / skillset) action plan for implementing

* Tweaks you can add in right away to increase sales on existing processes

* Daily / weekly ‘hustle flow plan’ individualised to you

All in all here’s what it comes down to:

>>> You will walk out with a complete action plan tailored to your business, very detailed and also very SIMPLE, with also a complete understanding of what you need to do and HOW to do it, to take you to the next major income level, and beyond.

This will include your next three offers (MINIMUM), up-sells, or funnel ad-ins, FULLY CREATED IN THE TIME TOGETHER!

Plus:

1:1 follow on support to help you implement and follow through.

I love doing this INTENSIVE deep dive work where we pull everything apart all at once, and then nail down the EXACT action steps for each person to take to get more paying customers and clients, who are soul-aligned, coming in NOW, who are also buying more things, because you’ve got all your damn shit in place!

This immersive day together is limited to 5-7 people per event. 

If this is speaking to you PM me here to apply / for more info!
