In my quest to create flow in my relationship I would often cave in to what my mate wanted, even if it went against my own values.
Of course, it wasn’t obvious to me when I was in the middle of carrying out that disempowering practice. Once I had the awareness, I was able to course-correct pretty quickly and I experience true peace and empowerment at the same time.
I’m convinced that entrepreneurs practice a similar negative habit with profit attraction…
- You hustle your buns learning marketing strategies, how to perfect your craft, and networking.
- You take a stab at implementing what you learn.
- You make some progress but it doesn’t feel like you’re reaping the benefits in your bank account. You also feel a little stressed and overwhelmed.
You’re doing what you perceive to be profitable actions but your own Inner Business Expert is being ignored.
Your Inner Business Expert guides you to choices in your business that will be most inspiring, streamlined and supportive of your highest values.
You can take any business model and turn it into a profit-producing machine if you resist going against the core of who you are.
For instance, I used to wear a suit and try to act professional when facilitating cash flow seminars. I thought it would gain the trust of the attendees.
But I HATED wearing suits! I’m a casual kind of girl. Suits and being stiff didn’t put me into my power. As a result, I didn’t sell much at those events.
I finally woke up and saw that what I thought would create trust was actually repelling sales because my strategies weren’t congruent with who I really am and what I enjoy.
That’s a turn-off to everyone!
I traded in my suits for jeans. I ditched being formal and brought in the fun… and my sales skyrocketed.
