The reason why it takes time to get to your next level is NOT because “it just takes time”.

You see your success as a flight of stairs that you’re climbing - it all feels very restricted, rigid, and linear.
But it doesn’t have to be this hard. It doesn’t have to take such a long time.
Every time you uncover another layer of why you feel unworthy, you remove a heavy brick from the wall of your unworthiness. You acknowledge that part of you, validate that part of you, and release - and you give yourself permission to level up.

1 You don’t 𝘢𝘤𝘵𝘶𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘺 want what you say you want.
You say you want 10 clients, but do you actually want 10 clients? Subconsciously, you could be resisting your goal because you know you don’t have the time or the resources.
Or maybe you don’t feel good enough, so even though you say you want clients, you actually don’t know what you’d even do with them if you did have clients.
2 You don’t feel worthy of what you want.
You have a goal to make $100K in your business this year - and even though so many people in this space have done that, you don’t think that you can achieve that based on what you think & feel about yourself.
3 You subconsciously think the thing you want will make you uncomfortable or it will be difficult.
And then if you have to be uncomfortable or the tasks to get to your goal are perceived as “difficult”, you’re afraid that those negative feelings will lead you down the shame spiral or make you feel bad, so...
When I’ve asked more seasoned entrepreneurs what they wish they focused on more in the beginning of their business, they alllll told me - 𝐌𝐢𝐧𝐝𝐬𝐞𝐭.
Because, it all comes down to the beliefs you hold about yourself, the world, money, and making money, honey.
And it all comes down to the thoughts you have, how you respond to those thoughts, and then the stories you allow your thoughts to tell you.
When you 𝘥𝘰𝘯’𝘵 focus on mindset early on:
you’ll create limitations around what you can & cannot do
your strategy will fall flat because there’s no belief or energy in the execution
you’ll take every rejection personally
you’ll spiral and then disappear, lacking consistency
When you 𝘥𝘰 focus on mindset early on, you’ll:
break through limitations because you know everything can be figured out
rebound from setbacks faster
maintain consistency because you trust yourself & your path
There’s lots of ways you can...
Hey MTV , welcome to my crib (𝘈𝘒𝘈 this blog), where we talk a lot about symptoms of experiencing imposter syndrome….
But on this fine Friday, I wanted to shed light on the good shit that you may be experiencing because you’re doing the werk so, here are 4 ways that you’re overcoming imposter syndrome:
Someone says "no" to your offer and it doesn't ruin your day.
Sometimes, a no means not right now or not this offer. Also, just because an offer isn’t right for one person, doesn’t mean it’s not perfect for another. You are someone’s sparkly unicorn.
You don't feel the need to over-prepare for guest speaking gigs or coaching calls.
Of course, if you do better with notes, that’s totally okay - but you know your shit, and people usually want to hear what YOU think about your shit - so own that shit
You easily detach from your client's actions, because you know you're doing your best to help them and they have to do the work, too.
I was thinking about energy and how important it is for us to be energetic and feel good because it helps us maintain our businesses, helps us move forward and helps us with our motivation when it comes to our business.
The main reason I created the Energy Management Bundle is because I found that as I started working with more and more one-on-one clients...I was on calls so much and those were really draining me.
I was really taking on the energy of other people and I didn't know a ton about energy management or protecting and preserving my energy when I first started out.
Then when I started to go on more of a spiritual journey, I started realizing,
"Oh, there's things that you can do to maintain and preserve your energy."
And that's where The Perfect Launch Vault came from.
Then the Energy Management Bundle was born because I was working with so many clients and I was realizing how drained I was and how that was affecting my emotional energy. Because the thing is, when you're...
Do you roll your eyes when your coach tells you to access your higher self?
Maybe visualization doesn’t work for you
Maybe you have a hard time feeling the feels if you haven’t already accomplished your goal
So when someone tells you that how they’ve succeeded is by activating their highest self, you can’t help but dismiss that woo-woo bullshit and declare that it will never work for you.
Here's 3 ways you can actually start tapping into your highest self:

Identifying the traits, feelings, and characteristics of someone who has what you desire is easier if you don’t have to imagine it’s you and all of your contributing beliefs & stories.

If there’s someone you admire that already has what you want, ain’t no shame in visualizing what they’re doing and how they may be feeling. In NLP this is called modeling, and is an effective way of replicating a...

I’m just going to serve you the tea today because I’m here to tell you that your coaching package is too goddamn FLUFFY.
So WHAT do I mean by this?
I bet that you’re a coach who’s having no success at selling your offer. Your first mistake is that you have too many offers on the go. What I mean by this is when you’re first starting out or when you’re trying to really sell somebody, it’s so important to keep it SIMPLE.
Simplicity is something that people buy into. They want to buy because the offer is clear and simple, and the results are tangible.
I know what you’re thinking… I’m a life coach, I’m a mindset coach, I’m a confidence coach. I don’t have tangible results. Oh, you ABSOLUTELY do. When people feel better, they are their best selves, they show up differently and they take action...

One of the ways Imposter Syndrome sabotages your business is by negatively affecting your motivation. You may feel this way because you’re insecure about your business, you sense that nobody wants your services, and you feel like no matter how much effort you put in, you’re not getting anything in return.
You push on thinking that your hard work is the only thing that determines your worth. If you happen to take a few days off it can create a feeling of being out of sorts because you start feeling insecure about yourself and you can’t pinpoint which direction you want to take your business in. That, in turn, can make you lose all motivation towards that particular project or trying to create new ideas. It can take the wind right out of your sail!
For example, let’s say you’re trying to come up with new content ideas for your Instagram, the...
On the way to Vegas, I was reading Dr. Valerie Young’s The Secret Thoughts of Successful Women, it’s all about Imposter Syndrome. Dr.Young is one of the leading people when it comes to Imposter Syndrome research. She does talks on the subject, and you should take the time to look into her! The book includes a system called the “Seven Defense Mechanisms”. One of those defense mechanisms is procrastination, which is the topic of today’s blog!
I’ll be doing a blog post for each of the Seven Defense Mechanisms, so please keep an eye out for those!
I feel like we’ve all experienced procrastination at one time or another. If you haven’t procrastinated before- that’s amazing! Good for you! Although I feel students for example are a group of people who tend to have to deal with procrastination frequently, although it...
