PLAN FORWARD AND DON'T STEP BACK

go time.png

IT'S GO TIME

Saying you want it.

Visioning it.

Feeling it.

Dreaming about it.

Planning for it.


They are all somewhat beneficial pieces of the puzzle. Yet they are just that. Pieces.


Individually they render themselves useless.

Together they are just as useless UNTIL....


You pair them with forward action.


Suddenly you've created the WHOLE.


Until you are going to decide to take the next action and then the next action and then the next action, until that very thing is a part of your reality it will forever be a thought, a dream, a wish, a hope.


It will remain what others have and you wish you had.


You don't plan for and commit to it today and then promptly go back to doing what you would have been doing tomorrow if you had not decided to commit to it today!


Sound confusing?


A real life experience of exactly that....


It's taken 28 years for my man to come to the understanding that this stuff I talk about (ok maybe preach about) is not theory, is not fluffy, it not wishful thinking, is not woo woo, is not spirituality (well it is but not the way most perceive), is not hard, is not for a select few.


What it is about is your - his - my, ability to actually be integral across all areas of life in a way that allows us to be honest around:


What we truly want vs what we think we want

What has to be done in order to live that

If indeed we are willing to do those things...


In which case if we are not...it's simple.

You don't TRULY want it.


There is literally one question that is needed to move you from where you are into where you TRULY desire to be and in fact, deep down know you can and should be.


The answers that come from that question is exactly where "let it be easy" was born.


You sit down and you plan, you strategize, you think about all the available options, you feel good.


You get back to doing what needed to be done in your day and next thing you know your living yesterday all over again.


You suddenly realize you haven't given thought to that thing that needs to be taken care of 6 months down the road so you start planning for that.


So what's the problem here?


That thing you TRULY want, the one you committed to, the one that once it is your reality means that, that thing 6 months down the road (that you forgot to give thought to) doesn't even exist because it is no longer a part of your life or concerns.


AND YET

You are spending your time and energy getting ready and preparing for EXACTLY THAT.


So which one are you ACTUALLY committed to?

What you truly want or what has been?


Back to my man.


Of course I asked that one question. "So if indeed we already were living that, what would we be doing?"


Naturally him being him... he went to what he would NOT be doing, which is fine as it's one in the same in this case.


"I would not be heating with wood" was his response.


That response alone was enough for him to fully embody 28 years of my "nagging" and the "let it" be easy mantra.


You could feel him relax into to the freedom of not cutting 22 cords of wood a year. The freedom of time. The excitement of the other things we would be doing instead. The realness of it had set in and he GOT IT.


Now the interesting thing is that heating with wood is what he noticed first. There will be no heat source needed inside of our plans so wood heat is a mute point.


But this next part is incredible.


As we walked through the forest in knee deep snow last week, as he had to carry the dog because he couldn't walk any further he says to me.


"I have to start thinking about what area I want to cut from this year"


"Oh, tell me more," I said. "What are you thinking?"


He went on to discuss different parts of the property. I listened and when he was done I simply said, "gosh it sounds like a lot of time tied up in going back and forth?"


He was puzzled. "Are you going to want to travel back and forth to cut wood for someone else to burn?"


His eyes got wider, his smirk began to grow.


"Why are we talking about cutting wood when you already decided that was the thing that was absolutely not needed inside of what it is we ARE doing?"


"You have to plan forward and don't step back. Let it be easy," I reminded him.


"If you want to constantly plan around and act on what was required of you yesterday or last season or last year, you can count on being in that same spot tomorrow and the next day. It's why we have been talking about this "idea" for 14 years and it has never become our reality"


"You stepped forward now stop stepping back.

You have one direction to go and that is FORWARD"


The need to think about wood - was banished!


So the question becomes...


What do you truly want vs what you think you want?

What has to be done in order for YOU to live that?

Are you indeed willing to do THAT?


If it's not a yes, begin again and find a truer true.


AND THEN


Stop stepping back.


You see, this work - this is THE WORK. It is YOUR WORK. The only work in life that matters.


It's the work of integrity

It's the work of a life fully lived.

It's the work of willingness to see when you are not in alignment.

It's the work of mindfulness.

It's the work of awareness.

It's the work of commitment, to yourself

It's the work of expansion in all ares of life.


It's the work of walk the walk don't just talk the talk.

It's the work of stop dreaming it and start living it.

It's the work of inspiring others to do the same, to live their best life by you stepping into yours fully.


This thing you want. The success you desire. The experience and the feelings you long to live inside of. They all come from doing the inner work. You could call it mindset work but frankly it is SO, SO, SO much deeper and more than just mindset.


They are a result of the transformational work and ironically the duality in that is that we are not transforming anything.


We are getting you BACK to who indeed you KNOW deep down you have always been and are launching you into the life that you KNOW is waiting for you.

Remember,

Life is not meant to be hard. Let it be easy!

YOU'RE CUT FROM A DIFFERENT CLOTH

Screen Shot 2019-01-25 at 7.30.27 PM.png

And then the moment of needing to undo all that you you have done has presented itself.

As you scan over the hours of work and efforting that you have spent years inside of you wonder, why.... why didn't I trust myself back then.

Why was I so unsettled in who I was that I needed to make it look "as good as" theirs.

The whispers came,

"Girl the most magnificent thing about you is that, you stand apart.

You know you'll never fit it.

You're cut from a different cloth.

You've never understood how they can settle for so little.

This little rendezvous you've been having with the pretend you, that was me, REMINDING YOU, how boring it is to settle into an overcrowded room.

You've tried the stand on your chair and shout at them approach.

You've tried the look just like them approach.

You've tried the go to all the parties and invite them back to your party method and even though there are many that have come back to party with you....

They are not the people you am meant to serve.

They are the easy targets

They are the - I want what you have but I'm not willing to do the work tag alongs.

They are great people but they do not light you up, it passionless work.

Essentially they are the cheerleading squad which brings you great comfort and soothes your ego as they sign your praises, yet simultaneously they bring great frustrations because...deep inside, you know you are NOT living up to your potential."

You've ignored that whisper and little by little it has become a booming voice that is now firmly stating. "IT IS TIME"

It's time to undo what is not truly and authentically YOU.

It is time to STOP all doing of what does not represent the cloth from which you were cut.

It is time to stop thinking that looking like them will make you stand out.....

AND IT'S TIME TO START

-Being your magnificent, one of a kind, only you, obnoxious self.

-Trying NOT TO fit it.

-Wrapping yourself in your own dam cloth.

-Remembering that you never intended to settle for so little.

And get to being the one that draws in those ready for what you've got to offer. The ones that have been waiting for you but haven't been able to find you because you were hiding in the crowded room.

Those are the ones that stretch you. The ones that make you squirm because you have no choice but to step into all of who you truly are. They are the ones you are meant to serve.

They are the ones that say - Hell Yes, what's next.

I remember the days oh so well of doing all the need to do's.

-The checking off the to do list

-The creating of perfect images.

-The pre scheduled pre written content.

-The searching for perfect stock photos.

-The right number of times, the right time of day, the right day of the week posts.

-The interacting in so many groups.

-The trying to draw them in.

-All of it.

I remember the day I sat and wrote, "what if you just simply showed up as yourself fully - every single day, invited them on the journey and were handsomely compensated for it?"

The hardest thing in the world to do is TRUT that YOU are enough.

The second hardest thing to do is show up as ONLY {you} every single day.

The third hardest thing is to share vulnerably and authentically without all the pretending.

The fourth hardest this is to wait for all of it to come together in creating the life that you thought, you had to be someone else to have.

The sooner you come to a full STOP the sooner it all happens.

Questions for you to ask yourself.

What am I doing in my life, my work and my relationships right now that is exhausting?

What are the things that do not feel like a fair energy exchange between the time they take from me and what they give me in return?

Those are the things that are not true to who you are. Those are the things you are doing because somewhere along the line someone has indicated you "need" to.

Consider this: If I stopped doing those things today, what would I replace them with that in fact would feel like a natural extension of me - which by default would bring the very results I desire.

Remember,

Life is not hard. Let it be easy.

PS I cannot wait to jump into the Exactification Smackdown with you.

5 days of journeying into the MAGNIFICENCE of who you are.

5 days of finding what it is and who it is that get's to show up in your life and work everyday thereafter and how to bring your brilliance forward effortlessly.

5 days experiencing what happens when you come to a full stop of anything that is a should and get back to the business of being you.

Draping yourself in that cloth and implementing THE MINDSET AND STRATEGY FOR CRUSHING YOUR GOALS. This is for the Hell Yes, What's Next hustlers who are ready to get results as a result of who they are.

Are you ready?

CHOOSE, BECAUSE NOT CHOOSING IS A CHOICE

IMG_5642.jpg

How many times have they said, can’t you make up your mind?

How many times have they asked, why do you keep changing gears?

How many times have they made you feel like you were the most haphazard, unfocused individual out there?

How many times has that left you:

second-guessing yourself,

thinking you should just sit your ass down and get a real job,

or even worse….

accept that “this is it” and stop (what they think is) searching for more?

Don’t you feel bad for them?

They will never have the experience of following their soul.

They won’t get to enjoy that feeling of stepping into who they truly are.

They can’t feel the very real possibilities in life.

They are terrified to say yes just in case they can’t do it.

They need guaranteed security in a way that shackles them to the exact thing that is keeping them from what they actually desire. They live inside of fear daily.

Fear of not being enough

Fear of not having enough

Fear of failing

Fear of being judged

Fear of people abandoning them

Let’s just call a spade a spade - they have a FEAR OF LIVING.

Because frankly all of those things are going to happen in this thing called life….. eventually.

So you can let those fears run you OR you can learn to RUN WITH THEM 😉

I know your one of the few who chooses the second option.

But those that question you, frown upon you, worry about you and cause you to question yourself…. they opt for the first.

Soul led creatives are people who embody:

Willingness

Self awareness

Self responsibility

Trust/Faith

Discipline

Steadfastness

Tenacity

We are rebels at heart, unintentionally sometimes, intentionally other times.

Why….

Because we are committed to our purpose.

Because we know why we are here.

Because settling terrifies our soul.

Because stagnation feels like death.

Because we know what is already ours and...

WE ARE GOING TO HAVE IT - ALL OF IT

And we are unapologetic about it.

We have dissolved the conditioned belief that to want more is greedy.

We know that actually and factually self first is not selfish but in fact IS necessary.

We have stepped into and over the discomfort of allowing what others think to hold us back.

We know that to do ALL of that….. gives others the courage, strength and PERMISSION (that they think they need) to do the same.

You know what you want in life.

You know what lites you up.

You know exactly what you need to do to get there.

You know you are beyond capable.

You know you have the courage and the strength.

You know that it's all waiting for you.

You know there is nothing difficult about it.

You've just forgotten how to access it, you've forgotten how to listen for the answers, you've forgotten how to align with your soul.

You have realized there is a piece of you that get's caught up in what they think.

You have realized that what you say you know and believe vs how you live them out are not a match.

You have realized that you are making it harder and more complicated than it needs to be.

You have realized that it's time to 100% back yourself.

You have realized that to live a soul aligned life and business is to collapse time, release the idea that you need to do anything, let yourself off the hook for having to figure out the how and to step directly into what you've been working so dam hard to achieve.

A Soul aligned life and business has nothing to do with thinking, it has nothing to do with figuring out, it has nothing to do with sitting on a meditation cushion all day, it has nothing to do with woo woo or mystical (it can certainly feel magical when you step into it, I call it Super Flow), it has nothing to do with anyone telling you what to do or how to become successful, it has nothing to do with visualizing, planning, stratagizing, mapping out, thinking about in advance (not even 20 minutes in advance), creating a calender, goals, resolutions or hopes.

It has nothing to do with ALL OF THE THINGS you have been doing that actually and factually are KEEPING YOU FROM what you have been so intently working towards.

Some of what you've been doing may be slowly (as in turtles pace) moving you forward but Soul Led Creatives are not about turtles pace.

They are about the most direct route. They live in the 5D world where they know time does not exist.... GASP. Which actually means there is no need to try, work towards, work up to, do a-b and c before just stepping into the dam thing. It also means they know they have the answers of knowing EXACTLY what THEY need to do to 100% back themselves and live that life.

Here, I'll give you a tangible experience of it and you can have your own truth.

While many will (or have) spend(t) several days and possibly weeks creating a vision board, setting resolutions, choosing words, creating there yearly calender, reviewing their past year, reconsidering it all over and over while wondering what they should add or subtract.

You can ask yourself this - what do I need to do right now to live Next Level Me, in life, in love, in business? Now go do it.

Where do you think they will be two weeks from now and where do you think you will be two weeks from now if you each do the above daily for the next two weeks ?!?!

Turtles pace or collapse time ..... if you truly want next level you, you need to choose which one your going to align yourself with.

Remember,

Life's not meant to be hard. Let it be easy.

P.S If you haven't already claimed your spot I have no idea why not, but you need to now. BONUS content begins to be dropped into the course tomorrow. Turtles pace OR collapse time?!?!

NEXT LEVEL YOU - because you have decided.

STOP the MADNESS at Once.

stop.jpg

It’s all bullshit and it needs to stop. It’s heard mentality, it’s fear mongering, it’s low consciousness.


You listen to them carefully and you act accordingly so what the heck's the problem?


Someone is giving you the secret, the recipe, the formula the ABSOLUTELY must do’s or you’ll never be successful in anything in your life or your work AND….


It’s all bullshit.


Let’s get a few things straight from the start.


What appears as success may indeed be, on the verge of bankruptcy.

Hell I’ve been there only, I went the whole way.


It make look like extreme hustle and nose to the grind, yet behind the scenes it’s a panic attack and anxiety requiring pill popping to calm that shit down. YES that was me.


It make look like incredible discipline and organization. Both sucking tremendous amounts of time and NOT moving the needle one bit and sabotaging the relationship that matter the most.


It make look like plans, lists and vision boards that are completed over and over again all while the last ones are laying crumpled on the floor or stuffed in your drawer - never having been looked at or referred to after having spent all the time on it because that was what the secret was to making the difference in your success.


How many times have you taken action in your life or work because you have heard someone (that of course you perceive to be successful) say to be successful you M U S T do ………


If that person was so dam successful would they need to convince you that you need to DO WHAT THEY DO or that you need them and must pay them to get what they have???


STOP the MADNESS at once.


It’s all bullshit and it needs to stop. It’s heard mentality, it’s fear mongering, it’s low consciousness.


I have no time for it and neither should you.


There is one thing and one thing only that is going to move you forward in any and every area of life. It’s no secret!


Align with your soul, highest self, already successful self who’s waiting for you to come meet her.


And FEEL into what is truly aligned for you. Before you go back to writing your list and thinking about what is aligned DROP the pen. Thats the mind doing more of what you’ve already done above.


Feel, I mean tap into what is ACTUALLY aligned for you. What feels good for you. Make your own rules based on what feels right for you, then and ONLY then take action.


If it is aligned for you to hustle because the truth is that lights you up and you know that is how you best sever the world. If it rules your passion and never leaves you exhausted or burnt out DO IT.


If it is aligned for you to right list after list, checking them off, sticking to them and focusing on that list because you know that is going to bring you to your dreams the fastest and you need that visual accountability to your self DO IT.


If it is aligned for you to focus souly on your business/work 14 hours a day and cut out most other relationships and life experiences because that is your single passion in life and you cannot imagine a day without it DO IT


However if you don’t feel that way about what your doing STOP IT ALL RIGHT NOW.


When you begin to truly align with your soul. When you feel exactly what you need to do and you trust that. When you know with certainty that THAT is right for you.


YOU WILL SUCCEED and IT WILL BECOME EASY


Let me ask you this. Before we had this inter-web of manipulation, fear mongering, heard mentality, I said so, because if you don’t do what I do you’ll never make it…


How do you think anyone figured anything out and actually began living what was once a dream if they didn’t have the whole wide web screaming at them?


Are you up for tuning in and aligning with your soul? 


Yes or No? Let me know in the comments.


Remember, life is not meant to be hard.
