I don’t believe in willpower and hustling hard to make shit happen. There is a gentler, more effective way to change.
Most of us try to hustle and push our way towards reaching our goals.
What if instead of pushing yourself to work through your to-do list, you naturally gravitated towards the things you want to do and did those in your own timing?
If that sounds like I’m trying to sell you unicorns, I understand.
If we didn’t push ourselves, we couldn’t be trusted to ever get off the couch, right? Well, not necessarily.
Willpower, to-do lists and discipline are not your best alleys – they can boost you, but they can’t fuel you for long-term, sustainable change.
Think about it this way:
Let’s say you’re trying to start a business. You’d expect there to be a difference in how you approach your business vs. the experienced business owner, right?
You might consume all the blog posts and switch between working on your business and numbing uncertainty and self-doubt on netflix. The experienced business owner routinely shows up for her business and does the work.
Why is that?
Do you think that if someone told the new business owner exactly what to do, would she then easily be able to accomplish her goal?
Is making a change just a matter of finding The One True Actionplan to follow?
I say no.
You’re not a robot, you’re a complex human being which is why it takes more than a change in behavior to make a significant life change.
What differentiates the business owner from the newbie is not just her knowledge or experience – she has a completely different way of being that infuses how she shows up in her business.
Now how do you change a way of being (and does it hurt)? That’s where I come in.
I help women grow into the woman who can pull her dreams off, without feeling exhausted.
This is what I specialize in. And no, it doesn’t hurt!
I’m currently working with creatives who want to start a business and focus on the very foundation of that: Being able to work on your craft every day so you can produce your work. Check that out if you’d like.
