I want to pull back the curtain and share the sobbing, snotty, sniffling truth about what growth sometimes looks like.
I went to see my mentor for a VIP day. I had written out what I wanted to discuss. I was prepared. Ready to go. I was going to kick some serious ass, in that way that ambitious women come to meetings.
And you know what I did for the first TWO HOURS?
I cried. I cried my eyes out. I sobbed. I went through a box of kleenex. (And I lost at least 30% of my eyelashes. Ahhh… those pretty eyelash extensions… big sigh. Is this the price of vanity? ;-)
Here’s the thing…
All my shit, all my resistance, all my deepest, darkest fears came up. All the stuff that needed to be seen and brought into the light so that I could step into who I actually am… it all had to come forth.
The truth was I was a sobbing mess.
But was it worth it?
Was it worth it not to pretend to have all my shit together so I could finally deal with it? Was it worth it not to ignore all my triggers but to see them in the light of day?
You betcha. Worth every, single penny, all 2,000,000 of them. (I’ll let you do the math.)
To be able to see my core wound and know what exactly I need to work through in order to get to the next level in my business–that’s priceless.
Seeing it allows the transformation to happen. And transforming it frees you up to take the BIG action you need to in your business. You are no longer stuck, spinning in circles, and limited.
These two things are inextricably linked.
If only we could do this transformational work for ourselves. We can, to an extent of course, but then our subconscious mind runs circles around us, putting up a smoke screen, convincing us that everything is fine.
It says… don’t look behind that door… YET that’s exactly the door you need to look behind if anything is going to change.
That’s why I always have a mentor. Clearly, I believe in this model. I walk my talk in this regard. I do the work. I get coached.
It’s a huge part of the reason my business is so successful.
I’m always in growth. It doesn’t stop. The faster I move through my blocks, the faster I get what I want and more. This is always the case.
This is what I do and what I suggest you do too.
