I always say that building your own business is a spiritual path, should you chose for it to be. It is one of the best opportunities to learn about how you can get in your own way, how you hold yourself back, where you second guess yourself, AND learn to shift those ways of being so that you learn, grow and expand personally, alongside your business. And just like any growth/shift, we can resist it and make it hard, or we can approach it with vulnerability, openness and willingness (and various different shades in-between). And, no, it’s not likely that we ever “arrive” and no longer ever get triggered. It is more about learning to spin less, recognize what is happening sooner, and recover more quickly. When we learn how to do this, life just gets a whole lot easier.
Even this week, I had a challenging conversation with a beloved friend and peer that really triggered me. My saboteurs told me that my energy is too big and too intense for anyone to hold. I cried the whole evening processing this, going down the tube of despair until I bounced off the bottom and came back up. I got immense clarity about why I was triggered, what was important to me, and how I wanted to move forward in a way that was really electric for me. I had one of the most powerful conversations with my husband that I’ve ever had, where he held a container for me that made me feel safe and held, which helped me process this deeply and quickly. And now I see that conversation with my peer was so needed for my own transformation and clarity about what I want in my business and in my business colleagues. All in the course of 4 hours. I also recognized that 5 years ago, I would have spun on something like this for weeks, and that a residue may have remained for even longer that would effect my confidence, my ability to trust, and my desire to collaborate. For that, I feel grateful and I also know that there is so much more for me to learn.
My friend and colleague, Ericka Watson, is one of the greatest teachers I know on this subject. Every time we talk, we get into deep conversations that help me recognize where I hold myself back and how to be loving, appreciative and gentle with myself in a way that makes the process of change and transformation ease-ful and powerful. It is so refreshing. I have also witnessed her huge transformation this year, that was unbelievably deep and powerful and not difficult. I watched her take huge leaps in her life and business including: losing 25 pounds, transforming her relationship with alcohol, moving across the country, and re-launching her business to teach others how to go through transformation and change with this type of ease. My admiration for her personally and professionally could not be higher and I am very excited to take part in her upcoming Free Teleclass on Oct 2nd at 1pm EST where she will talk about her LEAP formula for change and transformation.

If your heart longs for something in your life to be different – your health, your relationship, your work, your home environment – and you have struggled to change, then you will be transformed by Erika’s LEAP philosophy.
If you are like most people, when you are honest with yourself about what you truly want, a second/third/fourth voice pops up with all of the reasons why you can’t have what it is you desire:
– not enough time or money to invest
– you feel you lack willpower or hold a belief that something will be too hard or too far away to obtain
– you feel not _________ enough (Smart, good, talented, beautiful etc)
– experience feelings of hopelessness or feel stuck in your current situation
There’s a laundry list of examples we could come up with, and the fact is, none of these are true, unless you make them true.
I’ve now coached thousands of men and women, and the number one reason I see why people do not have what they want, is because of their beliefs and their ability to commit. I believe that Erika’s LEAP formula has the power to transform that in all of us.
Erika is on a personal mission to connect 1 million men and women to their TRUE Power and ability to create the life they love and the success they are meant for.
On the October 2nd teleclass at 1:00 PM EST Erika will discuss with you the L.E.A.P Formula which you can begin implementing daily to stay aligned with your authentic voice, your True Power, and your confidence to create the life, business, relationships, and health you desire, while perhaps, even championing the lives of those around you.

Plus, she will have her co-host in her 8 week program L.E.A.P to Rise, expert and Master Intuitive Scott Koepsell live on the line to provide both a grounding and an energetic clearing for those who register. His clearings are invaluable for helping to remove the blocks and old patterns that are keeping you from moving forward in your life and business.
Remember my personal mantra, It is Never Too Late to Be What You Might Have Been (thank-you George Eliot). Don’t be the reason why you stay stuck. Learn to get out of your own way. Remember that your dreams are waiting for you to come true!
