Why You Should Treat Your Goals And Dreams Like Muffins

Guess what? As a thankyou for being an inaugural Woman Incredible reader I just made you a batch of warm, fresh, gooey, chocolate-raspberry muffins. Surely you’ll eat just one? You don’t have to tell anyone – I won’t! Did I mention they’re organic? All natural, raw cacao for the chocolate, gluten-free flour and they’re even sugar-free! Go on – I did make them especially for you …

What’s that now? Oh, you’re eating low-carb at the moment. Fair enough. Besides, they’ll probably be cold and hard by the time I get them to you anyway.

Oh well.

But answer me this anyway. Let’s say you did eat the muffin. Perhaps you thought about it for a moment or so beforehand, especially if you are following a low-carb approach to nutrition. Or perhaps you didn’t really think about anything at all except for the tantalising wave of desire at the idea of fresh, warm, gooey chocolate-raspberry muffins. Either way, you eat it – or not – and life goes on. You don’t spend a week evaluating whether or not you really want the muffin, or perhaps if you’d prefer a different flavour, or whether you thought you wanted the muffin until you got it and realised you actually wanted carrot cake.

And maybe you don’t eat the muffin this time because you’re not hungry or you just don’t want it, but you certainly don’t continually avoid giving yourself a treat, right? Even the strictest of us have a night off now and then, and we take it for granted that we deserve to do this; that it can even be an important part of getting lean.

Wouldn’t life be just dandy if we approached goals and milestones in this way?

do or do not. there is no try.

In the launch post of this blog, strength coach Rachel Guy gave this immensely popular tip: “Do or do not. There is no try.” Imagine how your life might be if you made simple and fast choices about the big important stuff, not just about whether or not to get caught up in a muffin-moment. Just imagine …

  • you might have ticked off some big goals rather than simply talking or daydreaming about them
  • or you could have changed your mind and moved on to something else
  • you certainly wouldn’t have spent hours and hours thinking about whether it’s the right goal or dream for you, and pre-considering everything that could hinder you from achieving the goal
  • and you might even have the mental energy and head-space to consider something new once in a while
  • and even to just, well, do it. To make your life happen – now.

stop kidding yourself

Last week we talked about determining your values and what makes you feel most alive, most yourself.

This week it’s time to be brutally honest about why you are not actually living your dream life. All of these things you say you want; these things that you’re passionate about – why haven’t you got them? Why aren’t you living your dream life, or at least parts of it? Do you really want it? And if so, who are you kidding? How badly do you want it?

Perhaps you’re like me in that you can get distracted by other goals.

You stop to have a Snickers* on the way to the muffin shop for example, and so you don’t feel right spending more calories on the muffin even though that’s what you really wanted. Or you plan to have a muffin but keep putting it off for another day, telling yourself you still need to focus on perfect nutrition for a bit longer before you can give yourself a break. Or you stand nose-pressed up outside the glass of the muffin shop battling with yourself about whether you should or shouldn’t but just can’t bring yourself to make a decision. So you don’t have a muffin and you waste so much time dilly-dallying that you miss out on anything else as well.

what are your dream-wasters?

Think back over the past week as an example – what are the things that take you most easily away from your most important tasks and goals? Do you get caught up in email, admin, Facebook? What else?

Let’s get real here.

If we’re talking about an actual muffin, and you really really wanted one; you’d been dreaming about one for days and you’d made up your mind 100% that you were going to have one –

Wouldn’t it just be a simple matter of doing what it takes to get one? Even if you had to forego the Snickers, or battle through the Myer food hall**, or do a silly dance in the middle of your office block because a co-worker promised they’d buy you one if you did, or even if you had to bake the darn things yourself. If your heart was truly set on getting that muffin and your mind made up, woulnd’t you just, well, do it?

The idea of expending so much mental energy over whether or not you’d eat a muffin is ridiculous of course.

But so is the idea of spending so much energy over whether or not you’re going to fully and consistently strive toward your goals and dreams, but then never actually doing so.

I hope you care more about your goals and dreams*** than about muffins.

So, tell me. Do you really want it? Really? And what are you going to do about it?

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!
