Are you connected to your life?Jun 01, 2021
Hello beautiful soul,
I've been struggling the past month with feeling like I'm not doing enough for my business. I realized that I had traded one set of rules in my corporate days for another set of rules in my entrepreneurial life.
Where did this new set of rules come from? A few different places - for sure myself and what I've internalized over my life to be the "right way" to be successful, and ads, posts, and videos I've been seeing online from other coaches.
When I realized this, at first I was really pissed off. I had done so much work with my mindset about meeting myself where I'm at, creating my own reality, and saying screw you to society's expectations. I get to determine what my success looks like!! So how did I let this happen again?
I stopped meeting myself where I was at. I started listening to everything else above my own intuition and lost track of what felt right for me.
After realizing for the millionth time that I'm human and I will continue to make mistakes create learning opportunities for myself, I journaled about what was going on. What is going on deep down and why do I keep ignoring my intuition?
There's a lot of conditioning that tells us to follow the status quo, to be like everyone else, follow the rules of the loudest person in the room, and push our own intuition down.
I challenge you this week to take a look at where you may be ignoring your intuition and how your life could be more full if you stopped. Take some time with the below journal prompts and let me know what comes up for you!
Where in your life do you feel disconnected from the goal you are working toward?
Who determined that goal? If not you, what makes you follow this goal? If it is you, how did you decide on this goal?
If you are connected to the goal, but not the strategic plan on how to get there, what is causing the disconnect?
How can you connect back to your goals or action plan?
Think back on how any disconnects happened. Can you pinpoint a person or situation where you agreed to the goal or plan knowing it didn't feel right?
What reasons did you give yourself for agreeing without embodying that agreement?
Dig into each of these reasons. Do you have other situations where these have come up? Did they serve you then? Do they serve you now?
I hope this helps with anything you have going on this week. Remember, you deserve to feel fully connected to what you're spending your time on. If you don't, take some time to dig into why and how you may feel more connected.
With love, your coach,
