Another dream came true for me this week – I became a published author! I wanted to write a book for a while now and this was such a fun way to do it. What I’m realizing is at first, all of these dreams seem so far away and it’s exciting to think about them. Then, as they start to come to fruition, it’s very calming and natural. The external excitement of others celebrating and congratulating me was much more rewarding then any internal excitement I felt. The calm and ease going on inside of me is a wonderful, refreshing place to be 🙂
Something I’ve learned along this journey is it doesn’t have to be hard. We make it a struggle. And yep, you guessed it; it all comes back to our thinking. Read on to learn how to run a profitable business with ease.
The first thing we need to understand is that most of us have been brought up with the idea that we have to work hard. I’m not necessarily talking about our workday, although that’s part of it. We’re taught to work long hours along with working hard around the house and filling up every minute of every day. We’re not taught to take time for ourselves and take breaks. We’re definitely not taught that this time is vital, for it’s when we can connect to ourselves and the divine energy there to support us that the magic happens. When we give ourselves this time, it’s when our best creative ideas come forth and we gain clarity over our lives. This builds confidence in our selves and trust in the universe. We’re definitely not taught that. So we need to understand we have a lot of reprogramming to do. Reprogramming of old beliefs and structures on how we operate our lives.
Start to notice when you’re at your best. Think of a time when you were happy and everything was flowing. What took place in order to put you in that state? A good night sleep, coffee with a friend, time for yourself to read a book or garden? Really think about this. What was happening in your life to make you so happy?
Start to incorporate more and more of this into your life. Start weekly if you’re not already and then move into a daily routine. My daily routine has become such a strong part of my life that if I don’t do it, I feel completely off energetically. Not a good place to make things happen from.
Get help and support where you can. There is just no way you can run a lucrative business without getting the support you need. This is something else we’re not taught to do. We’re taught to handle everything on our own. Like we’ll get some type of merit badge for all of the things we’ve accomplished during the day. I hate to break to you, but there is no badge coming. I learned that the hard way, after years of trying to do it all myself. You will burn out, that’s the reality. I can tell you first hand; it’s heaven on earth to get the support in place to give you the help you need. A lot of people have a hard time with this. They think they can’t afford it. Well, I’ve learned that you don’t need the funds until you make the decision. You are an entrepreneur, a business owner, your earning capacity is unlimited. Of course you can make it work. You just have to decide.
Shift your thinking. When you can shift your belief from this has to be hard, to how can I make this easy, you will shift from a problem state to a resource state. You will start to find ways that you can make things easier for yourself. You will then start to make it easier, thus cementing in a new belief that it is easy! How cool, right? It can be easy. I realized recently, that earning money in business is actually easy. Even though I had been having success for a while, I still didn’t realize how easy it could be. When you align coming from a place of service with being confident you can truly help someone, it becomes easy. It’s all about shifting your operating state from fear to faith. Honestly, this phrase has been a little overdone – but it has such truth – you just need to get out of your own way. Whatever you need and want can manifest on a dime, it’s only you who’s blocking it. When you dig out and shift old belief systems, everything and anything is possible for you to achieve and manifest 🙂
