Have you ever thought…
“I’m not sure what action to take first to bring in clients?”
Or… “I’m not sure this action is gonna deliver big moola.”
Here’s a question to remedy that issue:
“What do I feel most inspired to do… right now?”
If you can let go of what you’re “supposed” to do, you’ll usually have a very clear answer. And it may have nothing to do with business.
I was recently speaking to a client about his business. He had a list of actions to take to reach his goal, but he was tired. Overwhelmed, too.
What he really wanted to do was spend the rest of his weekday lounging at home. I told him that sounded like a grand idea.
He panicked. “Really?! Stay home and chill out when there is so much to do at work?”
Uh…YES! What will make you feel better at the end of the day? If the answer is chilling out, then honor it.
But here’s the dealio on choosing what feels most inspiring…
Once you make a choice to follow your heart, enjoy it. If you try to relax but keep nagging yourself to get up and be productive, you’re setting yourself up for major setbacks and snafus.
Make a decision to do whatever you’re gonna do, then make that decision right. If you’re halfway into something and you change your mind, that’s fine. Choose another action that’ll feel better.
You are never locked into anything.
Giving yourself full permission to do exactly what you want to do is a foreign concept to the vast majority of business owners.
Employees are even harder to talk into following their own timing at work, even though they’ll actually get more done and be happier when they work this way.
My clients plead their case to me about all the things they HAVE to do.
I never buy into it, UNLESS they simply will not trust that it’s okay to follow their inspiration. Then, they must take the action that they feel will give them peace of mind… which is to work their butt off to get shizz done.
For instance, if your house is messy and driving you nuts, then clean it a bit before you focus on a work project.
Once your space is clean, you’ll have more access to your Inner Business Expert and more energy to rock your project.
You’ll yield faster and better results in all areas of your life when your emotional state is joy, peace, excited, or relaxed.
I always tell clients to go on vacation if they want to attract more moola. Because if you’re having a good time on vacation, you’re more open to receiving the resources you need to attract more prosperity.
If you’ve got your panties in a wad about all that you should be doing, you’re cutting off the flow of money. And you’re certainly not having any fun, right?!
So, what should you do to generate money once you’ve chilled out?
Grab your biz plan or project list and take the action that seems the biggest or scariest first. Then, take one teeny, tiny step toward it.
It’s an instant mood boost to make progress on an important project, and every other action you take after that will seem like cupcakes to you.
I know it may sound silly but anything that makes you feel good about yourself actually assists you in tapping into your own power. This in turn will allow you to effortlessly tap into your intuition, creativity, and persuasive selling abilities (this includes getting your mate to take you to YOUR favorite restaurant when they really want to go to theirs!)
Plans don’t have to be followed in a linear fashion. I know the analytical types reading this might not agree. The more you follow the plan in a way that works perfect for you, the better the plan will work.
I really encourage you to commit to taking only inspired actions for the next two weeks. Yes, you may still have to do some things like show up at your job and pick up the kids from soccer, but the rest of your life can be put into “choice mode.”
Choose consciously to do things the way you want to do them. If you become aware of shoulds and forcing yourself to do a task, simply stop.
So what if the laundry sits there for another day?! Will the world stop spinning?
What do you feel like doing right now that’d make you feel really, really good?
I dare you to do it. Then keep doing it.
Watch time and money flow in your favor.
