Let me be honest with you.
I don't know what the hell I'm doing.
The truth is I don't know what to do about most things.
Right now, I don't know if this is the best way to start this page or not? I'm doubting myself and am thinking about what is going on in your head as you read this.
What I find it amusing that even though my thoughts are telling me: "You should write more seriously", I'm not bothered by them, and so I don't pay much attention to them.
The state of "not knowing what to do" is something I've struggled with for most of my life.
This was especially true eight years ago.
I was super stressed out running my restaurant like a control freak. I knew that I had to slow down, but I just didn't know how.
On the outside, I looked like I was super successful. I had a beautiful girlfriend, a gorgeous flat, a successful business. It really looked good. Lol! But inside, I felt empty, alone and so incredibly insecure.
I pushed through, worked like crazy, kept a smile on my face, stayed positive and did what my thinking was telling to do while terribly insecure and lonely.
Within nine months I had three stress-related anxiety attacks that forced me to close my restaurant.
Now, I had to "slow down".
I'm sharing this with you because I want you to know that life doesn't have to be so stressful and complicated. There is a simpler way of creating the business you love without the hustle, anxiety and control freakiness.
YOU HAVE AN INNER KNOWING THAT ALWAYS KNOWS WHAT TO DO. YOU JUST CAN'T ALWAYS SEE IT.
WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST UNDER-USED SUPERPOWER?
You may be thinking about your skills, strengths, experience, and abilities. But what if there was something less obvious and far more powerful?
What if it had nothing to do with you?
WHAT IF YOUR BIGGEST UNDER-USED SUPERPOWER IS YOUR ABILITY TO ENJOYABLY REST IN UNCERTAINTY AND EXPLORE THE UNKNOWN?
For years, I believed that my ability to control my business, my relationships and my life would make me feel less anxious and more comfortable. The more tools and techniques I had to "manage" and "control" my future, the more secure, confident and happy I would become. This left me feeling burnt out and exhausted. It was frustrating to be constantly chasing goals only to realize that once I had achieved them, I found myself chasing the next thing.
The fact that I believed my feelings of wellbeing were coming from circumstance was the root of all my suffering.
Here's the good news:
Your circumstances are not causing your anxiety, stress and sleepless nights. That is being caused by your belief that you need to better control your outside circumstances.
I used to believe that my success came from the way I responded to other people's behaviour; the attitude I had when faced with a shortage of money in my business and my willpower to stay on course and fight through when the going gets tough.
WHAT IF YOU DIDN'T HAVE TO CONTROL ANY OF THESE THINGS AT ALL?
HOW FREEING WOULD THAT BE?
What if you could grow your business without the constant pressure, overpowering fear and fatigue? Imagine feeling truly relaxed and having more energy and time to spend with friends and family.
How can I do that when I have so much to do?
When things get confusing, we easily get overwhelmed by everything there is to do. When you feel your heart racing, your stomach contracting, your mind overthinking like some fire you can't control, it is a call to wisdom. An invitation to the unknown rather than an analyzing and strategizing of the known.
Relying on past experience and intellect will keep you in familiarity and deny you the gift of seeing something new.
Within you there is a space where contraction becomes expansion, limitations drop away and opportunities arise. In this space, fresh ideas and insights emerge from nothing. And all of a sudden your world looks like a more gentle, calm and compassionate place where you will find the answers to what you are looking for.
This programme is an invitation to explore the unknown and discover a beautiful space within you where you will find an answer to what you are looking for.
YOUR EFFORTLESS SUCCESS COMES FROM YOUR ABILITY TO TRUST AND LIVE FROM THE QUIET SPACE OF WISDOM THAT IS ALWAYS WITHIN YOU.
The first step is to realise that we have a lot of preconceived ideas about how life works that may not be serving us. What we know may have helped us well in the past, but it may be getting in the way of what we are really looking for.
We need to be willing to let go of what we believe to be true, let go of being right and simply allow truth to reveal itself.
This is not a self-improvement group.
As you realise that who you really are has nothing to improve, your experience of life improves.
There will be no strategies, tools, visualisation techniques to manage your thoughts and emotions.
Instead, we will focus on insight based learning.
You will start to experience greater clarity, peace and a quiet mind, even when your life gets busy and "stressful" situations happen.
Where do your best ideas and insights come from? You'll probably notice that they come to you effortlessly.
You may be in the shower or driving home and "out of the blue" with no effort whatsoever you have an "aha" moment.
In this programme, I will be pointing you to this "out of the blue" space so that these "aha moments" can do the heavy lifting, not you.
