Overcome the 6 most common SUCCESS BLOCKS
Stop doubting your ability to achieve greater success with these 6 Success Block Remedies.
Your work is your art.
The calling to serve comes from deep within you.
Your business is an extension of you. So when you’re not getting the results you want or achieving the recognition you feel you deserve – it cuts you deep. It feels personal.
In order to achieve the results you want, you need to balance the feminine flow of creative expression with a structure. A rigid structure can counteract creativity, however commitment and continuous action are the primary ingredients for success.
If you’re doubting your ability to achieve a greater success, the first step to remove self-doubt is awareness.
First of all, when you’re your wheels are spinning due to one of the 6 success blockers below, the FIRST BREAKTHROUGH WILL ONLY COME AFTER YOU GET GROUNDED.
What is required is a TIME-OUT. Sit in a quiet place, out in nature, or even, exactly where you are.
- Take 3 long (longer!!) deep breaths.
- Put your head over your belly button.
Take 3 long (longer!!) deep breaths again, this time, breathing into your belly where your hand is. This is your power center, otherwise known as your solar plexus. It’s the home of your intuition… similar to you know… that gut feeling!!
Connect with yourself in this place. If you have time, put on some music and continue breathing for as long or as little you like.
- After doing this, ask yourself the question you are stuck on,
- Trust the answer will arrive immeadiately or at the perfect time.
Sometimes, we need an outside perspective and a helping hand to assist us on taking action.
It’s time to END doubt, fear and overwhelm… here are the 6 Most Common Success Blocks and SUCCESS REMEDIES to reroute your path!
You have so many ideas and plans, but you don’t know where to start. Which idea do you run with? Which business venture is right for you? Should you be focusing on a marketing strategy or creating something new? Instagram or Snapchat or both?
>>> You want clarity and (after grounding) clarity will only come through ACTION. Park the other ideas and other’s opinions, and decide on one thing (this will be possible after the meditation… ok, you might need to do it daily for a couple of days so that you release the resistance and let the fresh inspiration reach you). Take 1 small action on that thing. Only do that thing for 1-3 months.
Are you stuck in a tangle between what you’re good at, what you get paid to do and what you really truly WANT to do? One avenue brings in the majority of your income and the other, the one you’re kind of lusting over, seems so uncertain.
>>> You need to intuitively align with your true work. Many times, you have to work 2 jobs (the one you don’t LOVE all that much but pays well) while you develop your passion into a business. Rome wasn’t built in a day. Get practical on how much money you need to do the passion work full time, and set a cut-off date when the supporting role job must end.
Stressing yourself out by over-analyzing, over-worrying, over-contemplating what worked and didn’t work in the past? It’s time to leave the past in the past. Perhaps this requires an energetic clearing, or a performing your own clearing ritual or you may want to work with me in Life Resilience Mentoring to identity the pain of the issue so we can dissolve it and resolve it by creating a definite sequence of simple daily/weekly actions to complete to rewire the pattern into one that is constructive and beneficial in your life.
>>> Give yourself permission to BE YOU exactly as you in this moment. Give yourself permission to love your life.
Are you going around in circles doing work that doesn’t totally fulfil you? Sure, it’s the work that did fulfil you at one point, but now you have evolved. As einstein told us, you can’t solve the problem with the same energy that created it.
>>> Give yourself permission to change your mind.
5. (OVER) Ambitious
You have BIG DREAMS and goals… you’re wondering did you set your sights too high or should you crumb your ambitions? The best things come to those who wait. Patience, my dear. If Patience seems like the worst thing you could do right now because you have no time to be patient, that’s when you need patience the most. Look to nature, seasons, moon cycles, everything has a cycle for development, everything has a beginning and an ending. Look to pregnancy, it takes 9 months to birth a baby, 3 very different trimesters in order for your body to be ready to develop life and for you to figure out how you’re going to deal with that life when it emerges.
>>> Make a 6 month SIMPLIFED action-orientated PLAN. Step by step. Long game.
6. No Accountability
So you think you have to do it all yourself, that no one will understand and you’re completing on your own. I know you have the best of intentions but how can you soar if you’re carrying the world on your shoulders? There are people around you who are interested in what you’re interested in, the only issue is that you have to give yourself the gift of going out and exploring until you find them. Choose an activity or a meet up or a new activity… the key is CONSISTENCY. Take it from me who has lived in the Netherlands, Canada, Germany, Ireland, Austria for 6 months or longer in the past 7 years… you have got to keep turning up at the same places REGULARLY and saying YES to events and dates that you don’t necessarily want to go on but saying YES will lead to the next opportunity. And soon enough, you’ve got a regular sunday sangria date with your new bestie penciled in your diary or you’ll join a tuesday morning business mastermind, or thursday evening poetry gathering.
>>> Decide on one new activity/meet-up and start going regularly. And saying YES. Smiling helps too.
