If the Business or Career You’re Trying to Build is Feeling Like a Hard Slog, Ask Yourself This…

Up until six months ago, for two years I tried to build an online business…

I had an idea of what I wanted to do…

Coach and teach people to connect with their soul to create the life they desired and speak onstage…

It showed up in many different ways, one of them was by focusing on the Law of Attraction while another was by focusing on health and fitness…

I tried many different paths and even created an online course teaching manifesting…

I held local group sessions…

I created videos…

I did a speaking gig on a cruise…

I studied the ins and outs of creating an online business and attended seminars…

And while I loved what I was teaching, I felt like I was pushing shit uphilll…

I kept it up until mid last year when the overwhelm hit and my soul called it all to a complete halt…

I stopped all of it and for the next six months I went within to get to the bottom of what it was that I really wanted to do…

I surrendered to the situation…

I allowed myself to see the good in what I was seeing negatively before about my current reality…

I asked myself LOTS of deep questions…

I took the pressure off and allowed the answers to come to me…

I dug DEEP…

When I started focusing on building an online business end 2016, I also went back to entertainment…

I’d taken a five year break from entertainment after the floods in 2011 threw everyone in the deep end and ended up studying fitness…

That wasn’t planned…it just unfolded and while it wasn’t my life’s desire I benefited from it immensely…

It was something I was meant to do for my own health and wellbeing and when that finally came to a screeching halt due to a change in management at the centres where I was working, I took the opportunity to jump back into what I really enjoyed…

Singing and playing the guitar…

But something else was nagging at me to share my knowledge about soul connection and creating the life you desire in your heart with the world, which is why I started trying to build a business online…

The driving factor was that I enjoyed speaking onstage, so I was working towards building a business sharing knowledge that I loved that would allow me to do that…

But the direction I was heading in just didn’t feel quite right…

And then one day, it hit me like a tonne of bricks…

I saw a video for the stand up comedy course I’ve just done…

In that instant, EVERYTHING fell into place…

I LOVE being on stage and connecting with an audience…

And the thing I loved the most about speaking onstage in the past was when I said something funny and people laughed…

It was in those moments that everything just felt perfect…

Honing my comedic skills was something I’d thought from time to time I’d like to do but honestly didn’t realise you could go somewhere and learn it…

Which seems a bit weird to me now, but anyway…

I’ve learned over the years that what you want is actually right there, right now, right in front of your very eyes….You just won’t see it until you’re ready…

The moment I saw that video I KNEW that’s what I had to do…

That’s what I’d been searching for…

It’s like the Universe had said, ‘Right! You’re ready! Let’s go! HERE IT IS!’

And now that I’ve finished the course, I’m excited…

I can see my future, I can take the aligned action and it feels good…

I really enjoy the online world and with this new lease on life I have new ideas of what I’d like to do, but I never really wanted to run a coaching business with clients of any kind or build an online community, even though I’ve done the courses to learn how to do that and everything!!

I’d even tried to continue with personal training clients but my heart just wasn’t in it…

I just want to be onstage, entertaining people and having fun…

And I still want share my love of the power within to create the life you desire online…just not in the way I thought I had to…

If you’re trying to build a business, a life or a career and it’s feeling like a hard slog, stop and ask yourself this…

‘What do I REALLY want to do?’

It doesn’t matter how simple it may seem…

It doesn’t matter how out there it seems…

What do you REALLY want to do?

What lights you up?

What makes your heart sing and what step can you take RIGHT NOW to start moving your life in the direction of it?

And if you’re not sure, like I was there for a while, ask the Universe to show you…

Be clear and definite in your question, feel it when you ask and allow the answer to show up for you…

Don’t go looking for it…if you’re open to receiving the answer you’ll know it when you see it…

Ask the Universe and then let it go…

Another question to ask yourself is, ‘Who’s terms am I living by?’

Are you living your life on your terms or are you trying to build something because someone else has led you to believe that that’s what you should do?

Are you chasing a dream because you saw someone else living theirs online and thought that would be the answer?

I realised I was also living like that up until six months ago when I realised that I needed to make my own way in this world and start saying no more often to what I didn’t want and yes to what I did instead of living according to the beliefs and wants of others…

And when I started to focus on my own terms and living them, everything started falling into place…

The secret to changing your life is to be completely honest with yourself…

If you’re afraid of upsetting the status quo, nothing will change…

You HAVE to be honest with yourself about how you FEEL about the status quo and the people in it…

Being honest about how your partner, parents and children have affected your life doesn’t mean you don’t love them…

It just means you also have love for yourself…

You’re an individual and your needs are important, too…

And once you do, you can start taking steps to change things…

You HAVE to be honest with how all of it is affecting you and what you need to change within yourself to start creating the life you desire…

You HAVE to be honest with yourself about what you really want…

Just because people are sprouting 6 figure businesses online doesn’t mean you need to feel pressured into doing that if that’s not right for you…

If it is, great! But maybe you’d actually be happy with a creative life making enough money to live comfortably doing what you love to do…

Only you know that answer to that…

Where do you need to step up and be congruent with what you desire…with your terms?

You HAVE to start living your life on your terms to create the life you desire…

Tune in and ask yourself, ‘What truly burns as fire in my heart?’ and then start making moves to go do that.
