I shared this quote on my Facebook page the other day, and I have been feeling really guided to share my own story with you to show you how effing true this is.
“The money won’t show up until you commit to going – not the other way around” Denise Duffield-Thomas.
You see last year I finally decided after so many years of just one more course, and just one more book, and just one more this and just more that….
That it was time to finally launch my business
I finally decided to put my self out there and, eeekk start charging for my services.
Then in September last year I came across an amazing opportunity to join a 12 month business mentoring program.
It sounded so amazing, but the timing could not have been worse.
With my new baby only 8 weeks old, I could have though of so may reasons not to join the program.
But something inside of me just said yes.
Somewhere amongst all of the fear, excuses, churning stomach and sweaty palms there was a deep resonance of saying YES.
So I did it.
I committed to myself and my business.
I still remember the feeling when I pushed the purchase button.
I literally felt like I was going to be sick.
My mind was racing with all of the fears, doubts, worries that it could possibly think of.
It was the biggest investment I had ever made in myself and my business.
What was I crazy…with a new baby, and my two toddlers at home… what was I thinking.
But here’s the coolest thing, each and every month the funds for my monthly installment show up.
And it keeps showing up. And they keep being there, because I keep showing up.
It just keeps showing up.
And last November, I said Yes again.
Yes to an opportunity that would see my fly half way around the world to a closed door workshop event.
I said yes, with out a clue of how I was going to get there.
I started telling everyone that I was going to LA.
I put the dates on my planner.
I researched the cost of flights, and the hotel.
I looked at what I want to do while I’m there.
And here’s the kicker –
Over the months, the funds for my trip just showed up – in ways I could never have imagined.
And in just a few days I get on that plane. To do that trip and go to that event.
Let me tell you to say I’m scared is an understatement.
I could let all of the excuses in the book hold me back – my weight, finance, family.
Yeh I am scared.
And to be honest I’ve though about not going.
And perhaps if my plane ticket was refundable I may have chickened out.
But then I though of my WHY. WHY I’m doing what I do
To help other mums move through there fears and step out where its scarey and so out of your comfort zone.
And to be the best role model for my family.
So I want to be that example
To show that its really scarey.
But its ok. It truly is
I’m truly grateful and so thankful that my ticket is non-refundable ticket. Because it made me really think about what I’m doing a WHY.
So no matter how many excuses and fears my ego comes up with to keep me where I am.
They are just not going to Win.
And this will happen. You will feel scared and afraid.
I guarantee it will happen at the beginning on your journey.
Your beautiful ego will come up with excuse after excuse to keep you where you are – safe in your comfort zone – that’s it’s job.
You just have to recognise the fears for what they are and keep moving forward.
But you know what, I’m also so figgen excited that I can hardly contain myself. I’ve had to work through a lot of stuff to get me to this place.
And now things have just all fallen into place perfectly. So I know, like I know, like I know that I’m meant to be at that event.
But it all started because I was willing to say YES.
You just have to make the decision. And you know what, whatever you decide is right for you at the time.
And it doesn’t just need to be around opportunities related to money.
This relates to all aspects of your life.
Make the decision, stick by that decision 150% , and continue on the path that the decision takes you.
You see once you make the decision, the Universe conspires to bring in everything you need to move forward with that.
Imagine if you keep changing your mind, how muddled the messages are, and then you wonder why you never get what you want.
It all starts with a decision, and then unwavering commitment to stick to that decision until it comes to fruition.
So what are you being indecisive about? Make the decision.
I would love to know what you have been shying away from? What have you been wanting to do but you let your fears get the better of you?
I would love for you to leave me a comment below and let me know.
Stay strong beautiful soul
All my love and gratitude
