Listen to: You Gotta Step to Leap!

I know you are so ready to leap, right? To grow your business, to make it fly, to get a new big idea out there, and finally get high paying clients you love.

You also know it requires a leap! A big leap! A leap of faith, a leap in confidence, and a leap in action.

But here’s a glimpse behind the process that not many people talk about.

You have to step before you leap.

In fact, you may have to take many steps. Step, step, step, leap!

Think about how a duck takes flight… it starts walking, then running, and then it leaps. Same for an airplane, too. It coasts into position where it has a long runway (meaning the best chance for takeoff success), and then it starts moving faster and faster until the air gets beneath the wings, and it works WITH the universal laws to glide into the sky.

So what’s your next big project where you are ready to leap?

Can you feel that urge to move forward… in a big way?

What is the step that is right in front of you to take… today?

One step that would get you positioned on the runway, ready for flight?

Maybe you want to redo your website to better reflect your message. What’s one step… research on the web brand color or layout ideas? Email that web designer you got a recommendation for?

Maybe you are ready to take a leap in your business, and you want someone to help you through the process like a coach – so it’ll be easier and you’ll actually get some Flowmentum going. What’s one thing you could do? Get recommendations or referrals from your colleagues? Request an appointment to talk?

What’s the step you can take today to get your leap going?

I hope you enjoyed today’s message. Be sure to let me know by posting a comment below or sending me a message on Facebook… I love to hear your stories!

[Miracle Marketing Message] Start living your vision now!

Listen to: Start living your vision now!

 


ARTICLE

I know you. You have a big vision. You want to change lives and inspire people in a big way. You want to reach many more people than you are reaching now and make great money to fund your dreams and the dreams of others.

Sometimes that big vision can seem so huge that it’s daunting. That very same vision that can be so inspiring can also create overwhelm, a feeling of helplessness and confusion about which way to go to make these big things happen.

To get lift-off for your vision, there are four key steps that can help you to start living your vision now.

The first, and the most important step to make your vision real, is to stop holding your vision out there and bring it inside of you.

Stop saying, “One day…”

Start saying, “Today.”

One of the attendees (and a dear friend) at the Pink Coattails Retreat that I co-led with Ellen Britt was Carol Huntington. She has a big vision. She is the Founder of Global Hearts and is starting a foundation to create an orphanage, school, and a voluntourism (volunteer plus adventure tour) in Kenya. She sees this spreading to other parts of the world.

Pretty big vision, right?

Last fall she held the vision “out there”… like “One day I am going to do this.” At the retreat she totally stepped into her vision and owned it.

Everything shifted.

Now, she wasn’t “going to start” a foundation. She IS the Founder of Global Hearts. Even though the foundation wasn’t 100% official, she owned that she is creating it now. She is living that vision now.

The second step to creating your vision is to break your vision down into smaller manageable chunks.

For Carol, she created a manageable first step: to fund the high school education for 5 Kenyan girls. The cost is $1000 year or $20,000 total. It was manageable, and while it still took her breath away a bit, it wasn’t so large that she couldn’t see how it would happen.

The third step is to take courageous baby steps of inspired action – every day.

I just attended a Networking for a Cause event dedicated to raising money for Global Hearts and these 5 girls. Carol is speaking her big vision and taking action on the smaller steps.

The fourth step to creating your vision is to align your life with your big vision and setting yourself up for the success. This takes a lot of trust, vulnerability and belief in your vision. Carol is selling her house and moving to New Mexico where she has family and a support system. She is designing her life for the freedom of the adventure travel trips she leads and the trips she is planning on taking to Africa as she leads Global Hearts into reality.

The more Carol owned her vision synchronicities started happening. People are introducing her to the right next people who have experience with foundations, orphanages, and fundraising events. Opportunities to speak about her vision and raise money for these girls are appearing – seemingly out of the blue. Every next conversation leads to another perfect connection.

It’s almost like magic.

And Carol’s energy and confidence has grown tremendously! The more she lives her vision right now – the more it’s unfolding!

This week take some time to write, mindmap, or speak your vision. Connect to it and make it real. Ask yourself, “What needs to shift for me to live this vision right now? What small actions can I take from the place of ‘I am creating this vision now?'”

Notes from a Lifestyle Entrepreneur

by

Thank you all for your kind messages last week when I shared a bit more about my BIG 5-0 wakeup call last year and how it has changed everything for me.

It’s amazing how we can be like the proverbial frog in a boiling pot who doesn’t realize it’s being cooked! That poor frog just thinks, “Wow, it’s really uncomfortable in here.” And somehow he stays with being uncomfortable until it’s too late.

It’s too much – it feels too big to take the effort, risk, vulnerability… and the courage it takes to jump out of the pot….

Well, I jumped out of the pot that wasn’t really nurturing my life and my business dreams and have slowly yet consistently made shifts.

And as uncomfortable as it might sometimes be, it’s way easier than being boiled by a slow death!

Gosh, that sounds so dramatic, doesn’t’ t it?

But this really is what happens when we keep tolerating things, people, situations, circumstances that don’t honor our deepest heart’s desires, our dreams, our values.

Add to it, all the changes and shifts in the world, in your industry, and with technology… it’s easy to suddenly wake up and realize that your business isn’t where you want it to be. You love it, but it’s not really fulfilling your desire to be more of a creative thought leader, provide consistent income, or you aren’t truly doing the work you want to be doing.

It’s sneaky how it happens!

That’s why I have pulled all this learning, observations, and some powerful strategies and tools into a brand-new teleclass series called “What Got You Here – Won’t Get You There!”

I’m looking forward to sharing more about this powerful wake-up call and how I started – being, doing, thinking differently – and how you can too!
