How failure nearly crushed me

Have you ever failed?

 

When I asked Creator what I should share with you today, I heard tell them about my brush with failure. “Tell them the truth,” is what I hear.

ARG? NO!!!!!

That was initial reaction because I really don’t want to talk about my biggest failure.

But I’m doing this 90-day thing where I check where my inspiration comes from and I act on everything that comes from source. It’s an experiment and so far, the results have been pretty incredible. I’d forgotten how fun business could be.

I TRUST that by sharing you might find the inspiration or even the courage to take another step in your journey.

I’ve always believed that mindset is important, but I also thought that if I worked hard and did what people told me to do, I would be able to have an impact and live my purpose.

 

Strategies & tactics work for so many people, but I couldn’t ever get any kind of lasting result. I would get bursts.

The process of “trying” & failing over and over again CRUSHED ME.

I was so confused. What was wrong with me?

I kept pushing harder and harder until I couldn’t do it anymore. By August last year, I spent days on end on the couch binge on Netflix until I could shake off the depression and muster up the strength to get in the “ring” again.

I was totally burned out and getting worse by the day .

My pile of debt didn’t help nor did the near constant isolation from working from home. It really didn’t help that the reason their formula’s didn’t work is that I was looking to fail.  How can anyone think that? This is my life’s purpose, we’re talking about. I have a desperate crazy need to succeed.

Then “it” got worse…
Last November, I went to bed one night and for the first time in twelve years, dark & suicidal thoughts were back.

In all honesty, it’s the last thing I expected.  It brought me to an all time low.

By the end of December, I’d made the decision to quit in 30-days if nothing else changed.

NO MORE PAIN!!

Six months later, my life is completely different. I’m receiving divine inspired idea’s. I’m trusting my intuition. I’m loving me. My business if fun. I’m loving my clients and I’m excited about what’s to come. I’ve started to let go of the control…

 

… and the money has followed with more ease than I could have ever imagined.

Here are my top learnings from the last year …

1) Check-in and see where the inspiration is coming from. When I’m stuck in fear, my “inspiration” comes from that place and is usually filled with pain. I’ve learned to connect to my source energy and check. If it’s coming from source, it’s the right thing to do.

2) You never know where inspiration will take you. This is the dreaded let go of the how. For example, I was “inspired” to look for a job. Little did I know this wasn’t about getting a job at all, it was about me getting clear that there’s no way I’m doing that again. It helped me commit to my dream.

3) Act from a place of a service instead of a need to make money. This has shifted my priorities and put it back on the reason I do this in the first place. It allows me to  trust the inspiration. If it’s being of service, the money will follow because of course the Universe wants me to succeed.  

4) Get help, but not any kind of help, the right kind. In the process I gave up the notion that a business can be built in 30-days, it can’t. MAYBE, but I’m it for the long haul. I’m now part of 3-year long masterminds. If you’d told me that a year ago, I would told you were nuts.

Now that you’ve had a chance to read all of that … tell me what is one thing that you take away from this? Hit reply and let me know.

If you’re struggling and you’re ready to get to the next level, I want to invite you to join for a Goddess Rising Breakthrough session.

What kind of horse do you want to be?

I remember the day like it was yesterday. 

My mom loaded all of four of us kids and drove us to a place where did they horse treks. 

Being 8, I’m excited, my heart is jumping out of my chest and can’t believe my luck as I picked my white horse with brown spots. 

We climbed on, put our feet in the stirrups and got on our way. Horse after horse just following the guide. If you’ve ever done this, you know that my only job was to sit there – I was doing absolutely nothing, but sitting there. 

Everything was going well until… 

My horse decided to hang a left and go down the ravine. With my feet in the stirrups, I grabbed the closest tree and held on for dear life and that’s where I stayed until HELP came. 

Now what the heck am I telling you do this? 

Because you’re not meant to follow the leader – you’re meant to create your own PATH. 

One of the biggest mistakes I’ve made, and one I see many smart beautiful women making in business, is following the leader telling you that there’s magic formula’s.  Follow me and you’ll succeed in the next XX days.  

But it doesn’t work that way… 

We all need to learn from one our leaders, but then we need to make a LEFT when it’s right for us even when they say, “that’s not part of our system.” 

It can get tricky because how do you know if it’s NOT fear getting in the way? The solution is to quiet your mind and just reconnect with your connection to Source energy. Go up to God and ask. You can also journal this out. 

Now even if you end up taking a left and holding to a tree for dear life, the Universe will be there to support you.

Dead last …

Today I wanted to share a quick story about how I finally ran a 5K race. 

My last 5K race was 12 years ago.  Organized by one of the local YMCA’s, the sun was shinning, and I was thrilled & proud to be doing it because I’d been running for weeks and I figured it would be a breeze.  

And then … 

The race started and I realized it was all up very steep up-hill! As my lungs screamed for air, I walked very slowly as I watched every one else run like they were gazelles.  

I finished dead last and gave up running. 

I tried to pick it again over up over the years, but the same thing would happen. I’d get a little bit o momentum, I’d run behind everyone else and I’d get discouraged and I’d stopped. Each time my self-esteem would go down and it would take me longer and longer to start running again. 

Then a couple of months ago I finally picked it up again and I’m now running 5K three times a week. At least one of those times is up-hill.

So why am I telling you this? 

Because my learning to run is a lot like most what most entrepreneurs go through. You get all excited about something, you start to take action and then realize it’s like trying to walk the steepest hill you’ve ever climbed all while watching every one else glide right past you. 

Know what I mean? 

Today I want to share the lessons I’ve learned with running with you in the hopes that they’ll inspire you to keep going in your business. 


  • Nothing is impossible, but you do have to decide that you want it first. What do you want? Have you really decided to go after it or are you just like hoping that it will happen? 

  • It doesn’t matter if you’re last because there’s no such thing. There’s just where you are in this moment on any given day. Stop comparing. If you must compete with someone, compete with yourself. 

  • Keep track of the wins. So often in business we look at the big wins and measure only that, but the truth is that the small wins is what builds your confidence. Running for 30 seconds was my initial win. Every time I lace my shoes, it’s a win. What wins do you have in your business?
  • Don’t panic when you have bad days, just keep going instead of “losing” your shit. The only thing that matters is that you keep going. I don’t know how long it will take for you to get to the finish, all I know is that you won’t get there if you don’t take the next step. If you have to lose your shit, put a time limit on it.


Now that you’ve read the above, what’s your takeaway? How will you apply this to your business? What gem do you walk away with for yourself?
