Are You A Joy To Be With?

Are You A Joy To Be With?

That’s one question I asked during the Frazzled To Fabulous call that seems to have caught people’s attention. People have been saying that they rarely think about what it is like to be with them. They focus on what their life is like and what they want but not on the actual experience people have of them.

Not being a joy to be with is one of the symptoms of being a Frazzled Entrepreneur.

If you are being a martyr, doing your work out of obligation, undervaluing your work, quietly (or not so quietly) suffering, playing the hero, faking everything being fine when, in fact it isn’t, or being so driven that the rest of your life suffers then – what’s it like to be with you? How is it impacting the service you provide?

How is it impacting your ability to grow your business? Are you a testimonial for the service you provide? Can you imagine that your clients or customers say something like, “She’s great at what she does but… she’s stressed out, overwhelmed, disconnected… or, the rest of her life needs help?”

These are all symptoms of being a Frazzled Entrepreneur. If you haven’t yet had a chance to listen to the free call you can get it here:

As I mentioned above, the course will walk you through the 3 Simple Shifts you must make to leave your frazzled life behind. They are:

Shift 1: Get real honest with yourself about the experience of your life and business. It is only by seeing with clarity and honesty what is happening right now that you will be motivated to take the steps to change.

Shift 2: Get who you really are and what you truly want. The key to your success and happiness in life it to know who you are, what makes you and how you serve unique, who the people are that you are to serve and lastly what makes you feel alive.

Shift 3: Get out of your own way. Yes, it’s true! The only thing in your way is YOU. You will learn how to stop trying to run up hill or sabotaging yourself. When you get out of your own way your enjoy your life more immediately and release your ability to grow your business and make more money.

To your fabulous life!

Permission To Thrive!

Time to blog…

In February I launched my “Permission To Thrive in 2012 Tour.”  So far I’ve given 8 talks to over 125 people. The response has been amazing. The mix of the concepts of permission and thriving has really hit a chord.  People attending the events have been highly engaged and we’ve had trouble keeping the evenings to two hours.

One thing people have been asking for are my Seven Steps to Giving Yourself Permission. So here they are…

    • Get a guide – It is you who will be giving yourself permission. But most people need a guide, someone who knows the terrain and can assist you to get to the gateway.
    • Explore and Envision – Pick an area in your life and explore what you really want. What would your life be like if you had what you really want in this area?
    • Identify your programming that has reasons, rationalizations and excuses that you give yourself and say you can’t have what you want.
    • Resource - Give yourself a resource. Imagine someone in your life who would say, “Go for it!” Let them give you permission until you are ready to give it to yourself.
    • Commit - Write down the permission you are giving yourself. Commit to having it in the face of potential internal, familial, community or even societal boat rocking.
    • Act – Identify the next step towards having it and take that action.

I’d love to hear what kinds of permission people are giving themselves. Permission to say, “No.” Permission to say, “Yes?” Permission to take Friday nights off? What permission are you giving yourself that leads to greater thriving and less suffering?

Look forward to more posts and articles on each of these steps as well as on the topics of permission and thriving.
