'You can't steer your life in the direction you want if you won't even admit you're in the driver's seat to begin with...'
-Me.

  • 48
This is something I talk to people about regularly. The way the universe works is 'jump or be pushed'. I am sheepishly embarrassed to admit I have waited to be pushed far too often in my past, so I don't take that risk anymore. Because the push is always more brutal than a simple decision would've been.. ?
 
You get little 'pebbles' along the journey letting you know something is or isn't right for you. You get a prod in a certain direction from time to time, and that prod doesn't always seem rational.
 
Most people don't listen to the pebbles. They justify ignoring it by saying things like 'I don't know how I would monetize it.' Or 'it's not a smart decision for me right now.' Or 'I'll do it someday, maybe when I have more money or the kids are grown.'
 
So then you get a brick. There's relationship strain. Your health is suffering. You haven't slept through the night in months, maybe over a year. There's a restructure and you get a drop in pay. But still you choose the safe option of staying with what you know, because you've never listened to your intuition before and you don't realize that it's trying to move you towards everything you've ever wanted.
 
You struggle on amongst the bricks. Maybe for years. You feel so tired and worn out that your true joys have been reduced to Friday night drinks and other coping mechanisms that take the lid off the pot but don't do anything to the heat source, threatening to boil it over at any moment.
 
Wanna know what 'trucks' have looked like in my life?
 
I lost loving relationships.
I collapsed and went blind in a sales meeting.
I copped a 90min tirade from a subordinate in my corporate job that left me shaken and numb.
I was thrown into a wall by my drug-addicted boyfriend and had to leave the country to be safe.
And most recently? I got a tumour.
 
I never like to be morbid, but the truth is, we genuinely don't know how long we've got.
 
I suspect all of you have seen (and largely ignored) the pebbles. Many of you will have taken a few bricks.
 
Please step out of the way of the oncoming trucks.
 
All love,
Sarah

Think you can't afford to invest in yourself? Honey, you can't afford NOT to. How much money are you missing out on by not fulfilling your potential? What could your business be earning if you healed all of your blocks around money and receiving and started operating with authenticity and power? 
Every month that your business isn't making $10/20/30k is $10/20/30k you're costing yourself by not getting there.

Investment isn't what kills success. It's procrastination.

The coaching blooper reel!! Here is a small collection that I was keeping in Notes of hilarious things that have actually been said in coaching calls with me over the last year. Special shout-out to my clients who are freakin' FABULOUS and hysterically funny. Love you all. 

.....

 

 

Oh ok.. um.. Sorry about my face..?

See!! You’re not a butt!!

I don’t wanna be a chin anymore!!

Turns out there were no fuckin’ fairies and it WAS a big deal.

Ok. So you made a mug with a dick handle and now you’re embarrassed.

Maybe your car wouldn’t be so beat up if you’d actually steer.

If you can’t go to the gym because you set your kitchen on fire, maybe you could try not doing that.

I’m not ‘blaming you’, I’m saying you’re literally still holding a lighter under the paper towels.

You have to stop texting douchebags.

My grandmother just got that vagina surgery. Getting old is no fun.

Stop calling me a flower - I have a PhD.

Sometimes we say 'I HAVE to do this' or 'I HAVE to finish that..' as a way to pretend something is being imposed on us. This legitimizes rebellion and makes us feel like we're taking back control, when really we're just phucking ourselves over.

You don't HAVE to do squat. If you have a dream or a business or a family or a hobby or a passion you GET to work on / at / for it. You are lucky to have it, blessed to have found it and excited to be a part of it.

Stop with the 'put upon' language. You don't get to be a kickass legend and a victim at the same time. Choose the reality you want and run with it.

Have you ever thought about hiring a coach, but held off until you ‘have more money’?

Have you ever met (or followed online) a coach you really want to work with but are waiting until they hopefully have a sale or offer a special deal?

Have you ever wanted to do something for yourself and your own development, but decided you can’t afford it?

Here is something very important that you need to know:

Behaving like the current version of yourself (who ISN’T where s/he wants to be) is a fool-proof way to ensure you stay there.

How you respond to opportunity tells me a lot about your likelihood of success.
If your first response is ‘I can’t afford it’, before you’ve even had a go at trying to figure out HOW… I can tell you your fear patterns are still in the driver’s seat.

If you are 100% committed to your goals, you will achieve them. But being 100% committed requires that you think outside the box, that you don’t go home defeated at the first sign of a challenge, and most importantly, that you MAKE DECISIONS FROM WHERE YOU WANT TO BE, not from where you are.

Let’s break that down. 

What would the million dollar version of you do? What would s/he believe? What would s/he choose?

If you were making a million dollars a year, would you scrimp on your education? On your development? On your associations?

Would the million dollar version of you think that his/her mindset, emotional fitness and psychological roadblocks weren’t important and could be ignored?

No way. Know how I know? All the big players have mentorship. The concept of a self-made man is a fallacy. All successful entrepreneurs know something that broke rookies don’t – and that is that you MUST invest in yourself.

All the hustle and grind in the world has no effect if you’re out of alignment with what you’re trying to receive, and if your nervous system perceives threat from you moving forward.
You'll just experience the ‘handbrake’ – procrastinating, being paralysed by perfectionism, over-analysing what people think of you and getting distracted by crap on social media.

Our systems are wired for survival, not happiness. Routine and inertia calm the system, which is why it can be hard to make the big leaps. But the only way to train your system to see that massive progress and abundant riches are safe, is to leap before you’re ready and live the truth that success won’t kill you.

Post before you’re sure.
Commit before you’re confident.
Invest before you’re wealthy.
Sign up before you’re ready.

Every single one of us who’s made the leap from the 9-5 to freedom, committed more than we knew how to come up with, because we trusted the process.

If you’re prepared to do anything for your goals and dreams, EXCEPT be temporarily uncomfortable... Then no, you don’t want them at all.

Don’t tell me you want to help people if you won’t help yourself.
Don’t tell me you want people to invest in you when you won’t invest in yourself. We train people how to treat us!
Don’t tell me you want to make enough money to be secure without working if deep down, you still believe rich people are unscrupulous a55holes.
Don’t tell me you want to work with the best if you don’t wanna pay the best’s rates.
Don’t tell me you trust the universe and are an awesome manifester if you operate from fear all day.
Don’t tell me you’re a coach if you don’t have one. Because real coaches know that coaching is a non-negotiable, and if you’re preaching that to potential clients but not living it, you’re a vibrational disaster and your bank account will reflect that.
Don’t tell me you want to move out of the pain if you’re not brave enough to face it.
Don’t tell me you want people to see your value IF. YOU. WON’T.

How we do one thing is how we do everything.

If your answer to getting help is no, what else are you saying no to, right now?

 

I’d love to hear what you’re going to start saying yes to in the near future – drop it in the  comments.

Hey all! A little perspective I felt called to share this morning.
Having a couple of coaching sessions is not the same as 'having a coach', the same way going to the gym once or twice doesn't give you a permanently fit body.

I've spoken to a few people of late who perceive that a couple of cathartic releases and a breakthrough or 3 have 'fixed' them, and now they're perfect for the next 50yrs. Not so. 
Does an olympic athlete have a couple of training sessions and then tell the coach 'cheers, I'll take it from here..!'

No. Why? Because accountability, support, tweaks and pivots along the way is just as (if not more) important, than the original wow-moment that got them engaged to start with.

Humans are onions. Breakthroughs are not all the work, they're the beginning of the work. The voice that tells you it's not important to keep doing the work is the ego, and it's goal is to 'protect' you from making structural change to your identity and survival stories.

BUT, you have to fundamentally change those if you want to have a different life. We are just projectors - if you want to project a different reality you can't just paint over the screen - you have to insert a new film clip. And that will require various levels of maintenance until it's fully installed and running smoothly.

Having a coach is a game-changing investment. Don't tell me you've 'experienced coaching' if you only showed up for the discovery call... regardless of how much you cried ;)

Forever sacrificing my own popularity for your growth,
Sarah
