"I Need to Know HOW!"
A few months ago I sat down with a wonderful woman who was determined to grow her business, but the strategies she was following simply wasn’t working.
She thought she needed help to figure out the 𝐇𝐎𝐖 of the matter, which were the strategies that did work?
I notice that this is a common reason why people think they are not moving forward, they think the sole problem is that they don’t have that magical little formula for success that other people seem to have, once they get that strategy, all will be well.
*I am no immune to that by the way, I also get caught up in that from time to time.
But what people often don’t notice is that no matter how great your strategy is, if you are stressed, pressured, doubtful or insecure and always living in the future for that next big formula, there’s no way you will have great results.
💭 Think about a time during work where you felt stressed, insecure and foggy minded. How was your performance? What about your ability to feel connected to others, to be creative about solutions or to be fully engaged in what you were doing?
Don’t take me wrong, we can achieve all sorts of things with stress, pressure and sacrifice…it’s just not a sustainable or optimal way to work.
Even though some people may very well just need a better strategy, what I found is that if we look a little deeper, we start to see that there’s something even more important to address underneath magical-formula-searching mode – your clarity of mind.
With less stress and more enjoyment for what we do, a whole lot more gets done.
Our productivity goes through the roof, our engagement increases and we have on-our-feet thinking that gives creative solutions and new strategies to whatever we are facing.
💡 All of this happens primarily by pointing to the nature of stress, where it REALLY comes from and what it REALLY is.
As we have more realizations on this we naturally drop into a deeper sense of possibility and clarity.
After coaching this woman for a few months, she started to see how much her stress, fears and insecurities were holding her back from being fully in to her business.
Last week she told me she has been able to do a whole lot more than when we started 3 months ago, she has been feeling a whole lot less stress, more connected to the people she serves and the effort she is putting is creating more of the results she is aiming for.

If you are looking for the next big “How do I do this!” strategy AND you are feeling tensed, stressed or worried, I invite you to take a step back and explore if those feelings are really helping you move forward.
If you need any help with that, PM me.
