Wherever you've been, off in that creative and beautiful mind, on an exciting trip, diving deep into healing or thrown deep behind-the-scenes of a new program launch, I hope that you have had very real (and long) moments of feeling back…
Are you back?
- In this season of life, are you feeling that you've landed back in your purpose?
- Landed back into what really light's you up, and, therefore, what "business" will continue to be about for you?
- Back to giving yourself more permission to express your true self, not just via your blog or on social media, but with all of your most important relationships?
In short, are you coming back to yourself and feeling even more you, even more honest and true to the person that matters most ~> you?
As I ramp back up from my most recent loss, this is what I've been diving into, a coming back to self. (For those of you who are new, it may not be what you expect to learn about in a business newsletter, however, when it's a part of my life, it's also a part of my business: I lost my Mom unexpectedly three months ago, and also lost my 22-year-old brother, unexpectedly, two years ago. The winds of change…).
And, in ways, I do feel — back:
~ Back and ready to share around what you need most support with in your businesses and brand expressions.
~ And back to, generally, give this life all that I got.
I do have a lot to give, and I know you do too.
So…how do we continue being the givers and the livers, the person who lives life to the fullest? (Sorry, I don't mean to make you think of liver pate :-).
So here's the thing that grief forces you to look at straight in the face ~> we can give more fully of who we are, be most generous of spirit and of greatest service when we have made time to give to self…to reflect, sit in stillness and, generally, make our enlightened no's a must.
Have you made saying no a must lately in your business and in your life? Have you been reflecting daily and weekly on what's working and not working for you? Have you made time to sit in stillness knowing there's as much creativity and strength in it, as there is in the drive you have to build am empire?
Over the last three months, I have re-designed what feels like my entire life and business:
I've tweaked my business model, changed my program launch plans, taken myself off of countless newsletter lists, further refined my weekly schedule and what types of activities I focus on during weekends, as well as let my team and family know, in no uncertain terms, how much self care and stillness will continue to be folded into it all…
I was pretty good at it before and, let it be known, that I will be exceptional at it now. Join me. Let's be exceptional at reflecting more often, at giving generously of our enlightened no's and at being more still, so we can really hear the space between the words and meet our most cared for self.
It's such a gift when we give to ourselves and are able to support others even more fully as a result.
So there it is.
Be exceptional at coming back to yourself and continue the exploration process by asking yourself: what may I need to tweak in my life and business so I'm expressing my true brand of woman?
What does my brand need to express that hasn't been expressed yet?
How does your marketing need to change or evolve to feel most like you?
What might you need to fold into your offerings so they include not just what you think will sell, but what will shine and most serve you?
As I shared with my Mom Mogul Success Society clients last month, success has many definitions and every week, every month and every year, we need to ask ourselves, once again, what our own definition really is. At different seasons, we have different versions of success and we need to base what we do (or don't do) based on that very definition.
Allow your current version to come front and center to really take care of you today. That's what true success does…it takes care of you.
Forget what others have told you success is, come back to yourself and make decisions based on what you, deep down inside, truly feel.
Today, my definition of success is based on how still I can be while still also getting after my passions, goals and serving some of the best clients around the world. (For those of you reading this — you are some of the favorite parts of my days).
Life and entrepreneurship call us to create and do every day, more and more in line with our values, however, the problem is that we're too busy to listen, most days. Today, however, I'm listening rather intently.
Which brings me to this. In the spirit of being back, really listening as well as doing things differently, I'd love to ask how I may best support you in my giving and sharing via my virtual love notes (aka newsletters)?
What are your most pressing questions around creating a meaningful business, while still having a life? To creating consistent income? What part of your authentic brand is yet to be figured out? What are your biggest obstacles as far as your expression is concerned?
Seize the moment — let me know! I'll be choosing a few of the most common themes and will reply with my Success and Brand Coach hat on.
Until we connect again, Creative Heroine, I wish for you, your own moments of radical (yet simple) stillness.
Here's to meeting the self whose way better equipped to serve, lead and guide with full heart because she's given herself the gift of time…
To your enlightened no's!
Life is good,
p.s. Just post your comments below and let me know what's on your mind, as far as branding, expression and authenticity (or similar) are concerned. I'll be looking forward to hearing from you!
