Thought for the day:
You know how people always say, and rightly so (at times), that you have to spend money to make money...
Well...I can not count the number of women who I hear complaining about not having enough time to do the things they really want to do, like build a business that will allow them to be more flexible with their time.
Are you like that?
Are you chanting "I'm so busy" like a mantra?
Do you often say "I don't have the time?"
Have you gotten so busy making a living, that you don't have time to make a life?
Sometimes you have to invest time to learn about how to improve your productivity levels and prioritize differently.
Sometimes the reason you are so exhausted is because you are majoring in the minors.
20% of the things you do daily, weekly or monthly are actually the things that bring the most impact...However most of us don't know what that 20% really consists of.
In my WOW mastermind, one of the modules is about creating a success ecosystem. It is actually one of the toughest for the participants to wrap their minds around, because it is such a paradigm shift. The idea is to stop trying to do everything, but to identify how to get the right things done.
One of the things I teach is how to identify your keystone areas. Areas that impact every other area of your life. When that area is optimized, automatically other areas are optimized and when it is depressed or challenged, that bleeds through to the other areas also. This helps the attendees understand, what to focus on first and often.
In one of the other modules, attendees learn what their leadership archetypes and superpowers are. This helps them understand how best to craft their work lives. One of this cohort's participants is a dentist (actually we have about 5 dentists! 💃🏾👊🏿😂) and one of her leadership archetype is as an advocate and one of her superpowers is her passion. How does this help her with her practice? Well for her, she is energized and most powerful when she is operating in her archetype through her passions. So if she focuses actually on marketing through thought leadership or establishing herself as an expert, it will not only energize her and give her the boost she needs to power through the other things she needs to do, but it will also raise her powerhouse levels and attract clients and opportunities to her, in a seemingly effortless way.
This way of thinking is counterintuitive to the way a lot of us were raised. We think if we don't struggle then it is not working. Make no mistake...you have to work and work hard, but if you understand some critical things, working hard, doesn't have to mean grinding and suffering.
Today, I am teaching about creating a personal success culture to the WOW mastermind. I'm also going to be teaching on this at the Alt Summit in Palm Springs, CA next February. I was invited to deliver a workshop to one of the largest conference for creative entrepreneurs because the organizers understood that information is critical, strategy is critical, but culture trumps all of those things because culture dictates the way you do things and what you believe and those two things, really determine your quality of life and level of success.
It's amazing how a simple understanding can change the way you operate and when you change the way you operate, you change your life!
I want to give you some quick things you can do to maximize your life.
1. Understand yourself. Figure out what your strengths and your weaknesses are. Then focus on your strengths. Rise to the level of mastery in certain areas. Mastery gives you an opportunity to have more impact and better returns on your activities in that area.
2. Figure out how to critically use your resources. What are the things you need to focus on that will have the most impact? What are the things you can bring the best to and what do you need to outsource? What do you need to prioritize and what do you need to stop doing altogether?
3. Purge yourself of your limiting beliefs. (This can be challenging because we often don't even know them, this is why investing in a program like the WOW mastermind is a game changer) because whatever you believe, you WILL make true.
I've been blown away by the testimonies of the women in the current cohort. As I said, we have lawyers, dentists, mothers, pastors, business women, writers, executives and more. Those women who have engaged fully, have found that they are shifting in many ways in their lives, and have called the experience "life transforming" "life changing" "Powerful" "Best investment I have made" "I got so much more than my money's worth!"
We are currently enrolling for the last ever cohort of the WOW mastermind. I will not offer this program again after this cohort and subsequent programs will be at different pricing. I want to invite you to make a decision today. To decide to stop managing your life and settling for just the life you have. I want to invite you to start managing your life! To apply your resources, your money and your time to transform your thinking and your life. To learn some of the critical power moves you can make to
Work smarter. Powerfully smarter! Get the right things done and operate in your "zone of power!"
Create more time in your life to do the things you love.
Become happier, more loving and honestly more irresistible!
To attract your dream clients, opportunities and positions. (After the program, one of the cohort attendees decided to look for a new job. She was so powerful that every interview she went in for, she got offered the job. When the one she wanted, asked her how much she wanted, she told them "a ridiculous amount" and guess what...she got it!
Are you ready to live a WOW life? It's time to invest in yourself. The lady I just mentioned spent hundreds, to receive tens of thousands!
I want you just to imagine what your life could look like? Just dream. What if you could start that business? What if you could spend more time with your family? What if you could make more money? What if you could come out of your shell? What if....
That if, can become a when...
