Who Do You Want To Be In 2012?

"dream life"When I was a kid I wanted to be an entrepreneur when I grew up. As the years went by and the idea of wearing a flashy suit and getting to argue for a living became more appealing, I decided I might prefer to be a lawyer.

Actually, I almost did end up pursuing that career; gearing all of my year 11 and 12 subject choices towards it. In the end, it wasn’t meant to be.

Which was lucky for me I guess, the way things have turned out. And the truth is that it was the entrepreneur idea that I came back to more than anything. Even though I wasn’t entirely sure what the word actually meant. But I did know that there surely could be no better career path than one in which you can choose your own pay, your hours, the very way you live every aspect of your life? Who wouldn’t want that?!

It’s exciting to me to sometimes have the sharp realisation that I have, in fact, created that childhood dream.

At least, to a certain extent …

you chose to be who you are now: deal with it or do something about it

By a certain extent I mean that my excitement is sometimes tempered by the realisation that despite me choosing my own hours and creating the infra-structure of both my business and my life all by by myself, none of it is still quite what I want it to be.

The truth is that there are 2 very cold and hard truths I’ve had to face about who I am, and I think you possibly need to face them also. About yourself that is, not about me 🙂

1. I do choose my own pay, my hours, the way I live my life, yet somehow I’m still not necessarily satisfied. Over the past 7 years (which is kind of when I started this blogging/writing/speaking/teaching thing; partly as my other childhood dream was always to be a writer) I’ve been like a rolling ball gathering more speed. I get busier, and busier, and busier. Time to relax? That’s for when I’ve made it! It’s for when my business is exactly where I want it. Isn’t it? Isn’t it? Hmmmm.

2. We all choose our own pay, our hours, and every aspect of the way we live our lives. Yes, that means you choose. Sure, maybe you choose a job rather than your dream business because it is more secure (you think), or maybe you choose a relationship that feels safe or perhaps you just choose a risk-free holiday over a massive adventure, but in one way or another you DO choose. Everything. On one level or another.

is 2012 the year we all grow up?

Think back to when you were a kid. Who did you want to be, what did you want to do? Assuming you can remember how to dream so openly and freely and freely of course.

And then tell me – (tell yourself) – have your actions this past month, year, 5 years, decade reflected those passions? Or have you been too busy, too scared, too uncertain? Too full of disbelief that (your) life could fulfill your dreams?

Well it sure as heck isn’t going to happen if you don’t believe it can!

Of course your childhood dreams may have changed by now. Or perhaps not! The truth is that mine really haven’t. I still want to be an entrepreneur, a writer, a leader. I still want to have control of my own time!

Here’s an idea.

This year, instead of just recording your goals on paper, or on Facebook, or in your head, consider something different. Consider who you want to be in 2012. Certainly come the end of 2012. And realise this –

You are not the sum of your achievements. Goals are markers, or should be markers, to help you live out your passions. To live life on your terms, to BE the person you want to be. And those goals are ONLY worth setting, worth dedicating your very precious time and effort toward if they do in fact fit in with the you hope to be.

Not one day. This day. Or at least one day this year, yes? And ever onwards of course 🙂

living the dream

For me, my ideal life is about feeling alive every day, about being happy, healthy, lean and strong, about being a Mum to happy and healthy children (I’m thinking 4 or more, just so you know), about having fun and romance in my relationship with my husband, about becoming a famed and respected author, about managing my money wisely and increasing my wealth daily for the good of myself and of others, about helping thousands of women to reach for their dream lives.

Those are my (current) big passions. Things I want to BE for life, not things I want to check off my life.

And I’m thinking that maybe, just maybe, 2012 could be a great year to ‘grow up’. To be the person I dream of being. Like, now 🙂

So how ’bout you? Do you think that maybe this year is the time to grow up and starting living IN your dreams and fantasies?

Or is it a year for setting goals that you ‘should’ work on, and then re-setting them in another 363-odd days?

Before you click away and go back to your list, do me (you) this one small favour. Close your eyes and imagine you’re that kid again; looking forward to growing up and being all that you know you can be.

And then decide that there really is no good reason on earth why you can’t still chase the odd dream in the middle of all those emails and Facebook posts. Is there?

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!
