Success Mindset

YOU ALWAYS KNEW

I remember being 8 years old, standing in a line for something or other in the school yard, an endless queue of students waiting patiently to be admitted for perhaps a special assembly, looking at the girl standing just ahead of me, a year older and who I didn’t know at all, watching as she seemed sad, and down, and lost, and had that whole “I don’t know how to be” vibe going on, and thinking to myself –

I can help you.

I can show you the way.

To confidence, to certainty, to standing tall and upright and proud and OWNING who you are.

Of course I didn’t think it out in quite such adult terminology at 8 years old, but I certainly did think ‘I can help you’, and what was behind that was a feeling, a knowing, an essence, of what I just wrote.

A little sign of who I always was and who I would one day become.

What’s funny about the story, is that I myself was the worst example of a kid who was certain, confident, upright and proud, ‘cool’ in any way, or owned who she was!

I wore the most God-awful hand-me-down clothes you’ve ever seen in your life …

I was THE most introverted girl in my class, always, and also the school square / top of the class always, a combo which does not exactly make for ‘cool factor’ …

I ALWAYS felt like I’m doing it wrong, ‘it’ being, well, whatever it was the normal girls or cool girls were supposed to be doing!

Even my SCHOOL lunch was uncool, with brown wholegrain sandwiches long before anybody was eating THAT, and often bizarre concoctions such as alfalfa with peanut butter and sultanas, plus banana mashed in.

You can’t make that shit up. The trauma is real haha.

But yet something inside of me looked at this lost and sad girl who had no friends and no clue of who she was and just KNEW –

I can help you.

I can help you to understand who you are –

How life works –

And how to find your way.

As I grew older, the fascination with understanding people only became stronger. I spent months in 5th grade, at 10 years old, studying psychology and body language in my own time, and doing my school presentations on said topics, and pretty much from then on I was hooked at going deeper with something I’d always naturally known how to do –

Read and understand people. See them beneath the surface. Understand in a HEARTBEAT, or less, who they really are, what they’re hiding from, what they know they are meant to be living for, what their SOUL is screaming and fighting and almost dying for.

I see people better than what they have ever consciously seen themselves, and I am also gifted with the ability to see EXACTLY what it is they need to say yes to, own, acknowledge, or ‘do’ in order to say yes to all of them. To top it off, I have the ability somehow, just through my presence, my breath, a look, barely anything I need to say, to somehow impart over to people the inner strength and fortitude they need to then go DO it.

When you hang around with me, for even the briefest of moments, you remember who you always were –

And then you become it.

The thing is … even though I can very clearly now see that this was always there and ONLY who I always was, it took me literally decades of my life to fully own this power, and allow my business, my life, my very AM-ness, to be about it.

I was drawn towards being a lawyer because I knew I can win anyone over with words, there’s not an argument or debate of intellect or EQ which I am available to NOT win, and I am a master at pulling the exact precise download, transmission, CERTAIN objection overcoming statement out of thin air.

When I go into the space, and DEMAND it?

The magic appears.

So I got the grades, I went to University, I stopped going straight away because as it turned out there was really no magic to be found in studying a process, a system, and being told what to do and how to think, what the rules of the game were.

Why would I need that?

How was there even a pre-defined game to have rules for?!

Without understanding myself remotely at the time, I understood enough to know that no –

This wasn’t going to work out.

Sorry, it’s not me, it’s you. You’re a rigid and boring system and I just won’t follow through.

I was drawn after that to pursuing my other childhood dream, of becoming a professional writer, a journalist, one in great esteem writing for the greatest paper in my home town of Melbourne!

I lasted maybe … 5 weeks? I don’t remember exactly. Studying Professional Writing & Editing.

I didn’t like being told how to write …

But I still didn’t understand myself, and what I felt mainly was a little worried that me, the A++ ‘top of the class’ student who was MOST suited (according to high school teachers) for tertiary education and a life of societal esteem, was FAILING HORRIBLY at following through with ANY of the proper adult pathways.

What was to become of me?

Who would I be?

WHAT HAD BEEN THE POINT OF IT ALL? I’d spent my whole LIFE being the BEST so that I could then have the BEST career, and now I was just … not doing it.

So, I went to Europe for a few months, gained some weight, became a gym junkie as a follow on from that, and then a Personal Trainer for the next 13 years of my life as a follow on from THAT, and because hey –

Why not?

I loved fitness, and PT working for myself under the support of a large health club allowed me to utilise my natural talent for sales.

I crushed it.

But I was not so great at ‘just’ being a fitness trainer … new clients would wonder what the fuck was happening as within 15 minutes of meeting me they were bawling in the members lounge over the state of their life and how NOT on purpose they were.

“I thought I was going to workout!” they would wail.

“Yeah yeah, we’ll get to that”, I said.

“No point working out if you’re not connected to what you really want in life, who you’re meant to be, and why you’re not doing it! Connect to THAT and you won’t need motivation or willpower for fitness!”

Most of them were astounded, and grateful. Some got super fucking angry with me as I in minutes managed to pull up the truth about what they’d always been running from, and who they were not being.

Over the years, MANY of my high-level corporate and professional PT clients quit their jobs … lawyers, analysts, CEO’s, even a brain surgeon! And would always say something to me like “this is because of the conversations I’ve had with you. You’ve made me realise what life is about, and I can’t keep doing this”

The day my brain surgeon client (who was young, in his first year) told me this I was equally in awe and fascination of my own gifts whilst also terrified his parents might come hunt me down. Who the fuck was this 25 year old personal trainer who had caused their son to throw his whole life away?!

Well … to FIND it. But you get my point 🙂

Meanwhile, in 2006, I started to blog.

I created a fitness website, and then blog, and I wrote about fitness, nutrition, and fat loss, because hey – that was who I was, right?

Well … not really.

The inner work, the values stuff, the press PLAY stuff, it just kinda kept creeping out.

But I continued to brand as a fitness chick.

For years.

And I built a very successful online fitness biz to multiple 6-figures per year, well before anybody was doing such stuff on the Internet. Why I was so successful was of COURSE because of my true message, but yet, no –

I wasn’t owning that or allowing myself to be known for that.

By this time I was dreaming of it, longing for it, and frustrated that I felt I couldn’t JUST write and speak stuff to inspire, empower, motivate you to live life purposefully and press play!

But I didn’t know how … I was fitness! Who would want to listen o me on all that?

In 2012 I decided to take the leap and rebrand under my own name.

This was it! Time to be the REAL me!

Instead, somehow, I accidentally just switched from surface based fitness coach to surface based business coach, once again teaching mainly nuts and bolts and shitty at the world and myself for NOT LISTENING TO OR WANTING THE TRUTH.

I would keep putting offers out there around living your dream life, being fully you, doing the real work, and so on … and they’d fall flat.

I wasn’t owning it.

I didn’t know how to really express it.

It was just something I FELT.

Fast forward to now.

There is ABSOLUTELY NO DOUBT, in my own mind or anybody else’s, that who I AM, is the person who, more than ANY other person in the world, can help you to find – remember! – who you always were, and THEN BECOME IT.

I have ABSOLUTE message clarity.

I own it fully.

I am UNAPOLOGETICALLY ME.

No filters. No edits. ALL the madness.

And I am paid millions of dollars a year for it.

For the same thing which I looked at that girl in the schoolyard about, and thought –

‘I can help you’.

I always knew.

YOU ALWAYS KNEW.

But if you want to be paid and KNOWN for what you’ve always been about, the ONLY way is going to be by being willing to go on the journey to find yourself and BE IN IT when it’s NOT yet the right thing, and somehow you can’t figure out how to get it to be.

There was no way I could have or did have the clarity confidence and certainty that I have now about who I am, sooner.

I always knew, and yet I only found OUT I knew through showing up for all the other stuff.

The way is only ever revealed through action.

Blind faith.

Leaping, stepping forward, trusting, when you can’t see and don’t know.

In the end you WILL be who you always were.

But if you don’t simply BE now, show UP now, with what you have and who you are in THIS moment, and as best as you can?

Then you risk never remembering.

Never knowing what you always knew.

And certainly never becoming it.

So stop waiting to be sure.

Stop looking.

Stop trying to get CLARITY, and using lack of it as a reason to not show up.

I only came to know what I always knew through showing up for every other possible thing first, and then slowly but surely noticing the pattern of what I always came back to, or somehow managed to make it about.

And just take the next damn step.

 

Don’t forget –

Life is Now. Press Play.

Rich Hot Empire starts next week, January 29!

>>> Work With Me for 6-Weeks Personally to Grow Your Perfect Cult Tribe, Create and Launch Your Low-High End EMPIRE, and Set Up Multiple Recurring Income Streams to Take You to 7-Figures and Beyond, Doing What You Love! <<<

I so deeply believe and know that women (and men!) like us – we just CAN’T do it in the normal way. We’re never going to fit in the Internet Marketer box. We don’t want to fit in the box! And even if we could fit in the damn box we’d blow that shit up! It’d be messy AF … and often IS.

It’s just not going to get us the results we want, because for those who are so soul-led, like you, like me, and have that whole crrrrrraazzzzzy creator thang going on (with a hefty dose of chaos!)

We gotta do it a different way.

BUT.

Being that person, the crazy creator soul-led one, can all too commonly result in work, yep, the actual ASSKICKIN’ work that needs to be done for YOUR empire to be created to, well –

Not get done.

The crazy ones have a tendency, from time to time, to get so caught up in ‘I gotta FEEL it’, that they don’t necessarily ground, plant, DECIDE, and make shit happen.

You may have noticed 😉

Maybe because there’s fear there of having to conform! And knowing from experience or just ’cause you KNOW, that you’re not going to, you won’t follow their rules, and so why even try.

Yet at the same time you know:

I have to lay myself on the line.

It’s time to back myself, but FULLY.

I gotta dig my damn heels in and DO the darn thing now!

This? This is what Rich Hot Empire, and the work I do with you as a private client in this 6 week time together, is all about. It’s a time to really get into the structure and strategy in a DIFFERENT kind of way. To go behind the scenes of how I’ve done it, to build a multiple 7-fig per year biz which breaks all the rules, lets me be me, and yet is also highly structured … without at all feeling that way!

It’s a pretty cool thing, to realise you figured out how to unleash ALL your madness, but fully, and NEVER compromise on what feels fuck yes and fly for you, and yet know you got your biz shiz sorted!

Guess what??

You get to have that too.

In Rich Hot Empire I take you fully behind the scenes of how I do this thing, and I help you to craft and also implement and FULLY action all the ins and outs YOU need to grow your soulmate tribe, and activate low right through to high end income streams, so you too can create the empire you dream of, FULLY ON YOUR TERMS.

You do this in a mastermind with my other private 1:1 clients, and you get to keep all content, all BTS of my biz, all templates, ‘how we dos’ (all based on being the crazy creator type), you name it, it’s all right there for you for life, showing you exactly what to set up, and how! I’ll give you a detailed rundown of that 6 weeks when you message me.

AND! Alongside the mastermind you’re simultaneously doing 6 weeks 1:1 with me. All in. You and me. Completely tailored. Daily conversation flow. Alignment and asskickery to infinity, baby.

We dig ALL the way in to your belief stuff, mindset stuff, energetic alignment and ability to receive, everything INTERNAL that is stopping you from already being where you know you should and could, and what to do about it.

Rich Hot Empire gets such incredible results for people because it marries these two areas together. Full alignment to that next level identity you KNOW is waiting for you –

And full asskickery to do what you know you gotta do, with me right there by your side showing you how to do that, how to find the exact way that feels good and works for YOU.

Ready to dig those damn heels in sister, but for real this time??

Message me for the full overview. Do it now. You don’t need another fucking person who will NEVER think like you telling you how to do shit you’d rather fork your own eyeballs than do. Even if it’s your own fear mind haha. You need someone who has done it for real from crazy. From madness. From flow. From SOUL. And can show you how to go all in on yours.

It’s motherfreakin’ time.
