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.

The most amazing part about all of this? I’m in the process o everything I laid out on my vision board at the beginning of the year!!!!

That wouldn’t have happened if I kept trying to do things alone.  Don’t make the same mistake I did. If you’re serious about living up to your potential and having the impact you came here to make, join me for this complimentary breakthrough call here.
