I recently spent two full days laying the foundation for my business. I had incredible support in the form of a personal business development mentor. The energy and excitement I had leading up to this session was incredible! I KNEW that my life would change going through this process. I was shifting my mindset from an “S” to a “B”, from the left side of the quadrant to the right side. But, one of the most profound moments didn’t come from the actual laying of the foundation. It came from a side discussion related to what I do.
Do you ever have the feeling when you know something BIG is about to happen?
Do you ever resist it because you have someone else around and you feel embarrassed?
Do you ever feel the tightening in your chest, or the burning in your eyes as tears fill?
This is exactly the experience and the process that I went through. We were having a conversation about what I do ~ speaking and coaching. In a moment I said something that will forever change my life.
“If it is easy for me, I figure that I must be doing something wrong.”
WHOA! Where did THAT come from?! We were talking about coaching and speaking and that is what came up for me. Now what? What an incredible realization. Nothing has ever been “easy” the way that speaking and coaching has been. I have never truly loved any other J-O-B the way I love speaking and coaching. And yet, in that moment, that is what came up for me. If I love it and it comes easy for me, I must be doing something wrong.
Alignment ~ We are implicated and involved at birth with our destiny by alignment. To discover and accept our alignment is to fully realize our destiny. This is above choice and beyond denial. You see, once you find out what you are here for you don’t have to be trained and you no longer struggle. If you have to go off and get trained for what you want to do with your life, chances are that’s not your destiny. You say, yeah but what if it requires technical skills? Well, what about Mozart? He began writing and playing symphonies at the age of 4. Tiger Woods began hitting golf balls at the age of 3. Now you may say, well that was them, that is not me. And it’s at that very moment you begin to discredit your true greatness and true wealth (well-being) will continue to elude you.
I remind myself that I am a center of pure loving consciousness.
Allow and trust. Trust the process. Feel the feelings. Let go of the tears. Let them flow. Feel this moment. Feel the moment and trust.
What a huge experience. What a blessing. What an incredible opportunity for learning and growth! Thank you! Thank you for seeing it as such. Thank you to my mentor for holding the space and allowing the energy of the moment to direct our conversation.
What I now understand and realize is that feeling that I have of “ease” is because I am doing exactly what I am uniquely designed and created to do! I knew I loved it. I knew I had a passion for it. I felt like it was my purpose. I told others it is my purpose. But I KNOW it!
What an opportunity we all have. What an amazing gift we’ve all been given.
We’ve been implicated and involved at birth! It is our destiny. When you come into alignment with it, you will know ‘ease’. If you catch yourself saying, “If it is easy, I must be doing something wrong”, know that you are tapping into something incredible!
Easy for me was foreign. I’ve had moments in other J-O-B’s that I’ve enjoyed, but never that came easy to me. Easy is foreign.
Foreign is the new good!
