Have you ever had this vision of how life would be soooo different (and amazing!) if only you could ________ (fill in the blank)?
I remember when I first set the intention to hit 6 figures and thought, “Once I cross the $100,000 threshold, everything will be MADE. I’ll be crushing it in my business and sippin’ piña coladas beachside. Oooh, I can’t wait!!”
HA HA HA. Now that’s a funny story.
Here’s how it really went down…
I hit financial success quickly. Like 6 figures in 6 months quickly. And the month I hit 6 figures, I was actually the most unhappy I’ve ever been inside of my business.
I had just wrapped up a launch and was so disappointed by the results. Not to mention, I was so burnt out I barely had the energy or desire to lead the program.
But for whatever reason, I didn’t listen to my intuition that was screaming, “STOP. REGROUP. RECALIBRATE!” Instead, I kept on pushing because I had shit to get done and I had even bigger and better goals to hit.
The Big U (Universe) had other plans in store for me though…
One morning I woke up with a stomach pain unlike anything I’ve ever felt before. It felt like daggers were being thrust into me repeatedly and I was doing everything I could to catch my breath and simply breathe.
At one point, I looked over to my now fiancé and wailed, “Am I dying? I think I’m dying.”
Needless to say, he rushed me to the ER and I was put on a morphine drip. (And I don’t even take Advil unless something severe is going down. I kept refusing the morphine until I couldn’t bear the pain any longer and was practically begging for it. It was a dark, excruciatingly painful time.)
But that isolated incident still wasn’t enough to bring me to my senses.
Soon, all of my money was drained from my accounts and debt was piling up. Normally, I had potential clients booking Discovery Calls left and right—Iike waaaay too many to even get on. But all of a sudden, there were ZERO calls being booked. It felt as if an invisibility cloak had been tossed over me (and not in a cool, magical way!). And the stomach aches kept coming back. More trips to the hospital ensued and I was physically forced to stop.
Only then did I realize, this is NOT okay. And worst of all—I’m the one doing this to myself. What the fuck am I doing?
That’s when I realized that what I’d been doing for a loooong time was making other women’s goals my own. I would chase after their numbers and their dreams, but would feel totally empty (and depleted) in the process.
At this point, I got real with myself. Clearllllllly this way of doing things wasn’t working. I found myself asking, “What do I really want? What’s true for me?”
I was so out of touch with my own desires.
I felt lost, confused, and stupid.
How didn’t I know what I wanted? How did everyone else know what their goals and dreams were? WTF was wrong with me?
This set me on a wild path of getting clear on what I really desired and throwing out all the cookie-cutter tactics, strategies, and rules to follow my OWN compass.
There’s more to this story, and it’s coming up in the next post in this series. I’m going to be sharing what this entire experience taught me and how I ultimately solved this problem and COMPLETELY transformed my business.
In the meantime, I want to ask you… can you relate?
Do you feel like you are making other women’s goals your own? Like you’ve been looking outside of yourself for a metric of “success”? (Maybe even reaching it, only to realize it’s not what it’s cracked up to be?) And you still aren’t feeling that satisfaction and fulfillment you desire?
You are not alone…
And… this can completely shift!
I have created an exclusive opportunity to get my support so you can break through this point in your business. (On the other side of this confusion is everything you want. I’ve seen it again and again!)
If you know this is something you need support with and you’re SO ready for your next breakthrough (but you feel stuck), shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and share what’s going on with me!
P.S. You KNOW your life and business could feel so different than they do right now. So why continue down a road you know you don’t want to be traveling on? Or even worse, why wait until things hit rock bottom (like I did—ugh!)? If you’re truly ready to create success on your OWN terms (even if it feels like a total longshot right now), shoot me an email (email@example.com) and let’s chat 🙂
