Why your assets are obstacles you need to overcome.
I want to share something with you that most of us overlook and that’s how your assets are actually your greatest liabilities and why you’re here to learn how to overcome them. The Universe is very intentional in how it leads us to our path of greatest fulfillment and works to guide us in every way possible. Said another way >>> the problems you’re facing are actually the Universe trying to nudge you in the right direction.
I want to help you identify how you might be missing the gift that the Universe wants you to claim because you’ve overlooked it, due to the fact that it’s wrapped in the disguise of a very common problem that you’re likely not willing to face and overcome.
This is a two part process that I’m going to share with you and I’ll give you an example of my own so you can see how it works, but know that you can apply it to anything. I strongly encourage you to do this exercise on your own to figure out where you might be blocking your own success.
Step One: Name your gifts
Identify a pattern or way of being that you would describe as one of your gifts or assets. It’s something that comes effortless and easily for you that you do automatically, without even thinking. The example of my own that I’m going to use is my knack for being able to take massive action, with huge amounts of enthusiasm, which creates big results that happen fast.
My old pattern is evident in how I do everything. I’m naturally able to generate a ton of positive, fiery and enthusiastic energy to get things started. This is what I refer to as Initiator energy in the 3 Energetic Archetypes of Success. I get things moving, and like the little engine that could, it takes a lot of power to mobilize energy once it’s stuck, stagnant or just hasn’t moved in ages. I’m naturally very good at doing this so it tends to be how I approach solving all problems, not matter what they are.
Step Two: Identify the underlying beliefs
Anything that we’re really good at is usually because it’s something that we’ve done repeatedly. Which means there’s an underlying belief that motivated us to take action in that way, out of habit. In my case, the underlying belief that drives the urgency of my Initiator energy is the fear that if things don’t change right now, something bad is going to happen.
There’s an unconscious belief that if I can just muster up enough energy I can MAKE the change I want to see happen, a reality. If we go even further, the belief is I HAVE to do it on my own because no one is doing anything to make change happen. This reflects a fear that others are not acting fast enough or powerfully enough. The impatience for change to happen faster leads to further separation from the support of the Universe and the timeline it has for how my life will unfold.
Step Three: What are the corresponding actions?
This belief drives a tendency in me to overwork, push too hard, feel an intense sense of urgency and a deep need to see results fast. It’s also why I was a sprinter when I ran track, not a distance runner. This is an incredible asset in many cases but it does have it’s downsides, as do your assets.
This gift is absolutely what allowed me to go from welfare to 6 figures in only 6 months. But going from 6 figures to long term sustainability requires a very different set of skills. And the only way for me to uncover those skills is to stop relying on my assets and start unwrapping the gifts that lie hidden in my apparent obstacles and problems.
One way this has showed up for me is the business model I chose. It totally supported quick, short term results with big payoffs but it wasn’t scalable. Which meant that the only way to sustain it and grow, was to work harder. And at a certain point, working harder is no longer an option. The only way to grow, is change who you’re being. This why I developed the 3 Energetic Archetypes of Success, because I could see that I had been avoiding learning how to develop and harness the power of the other two energetic archetypes, the ShapeShifter and the Sustainer.
Step Four: Results
As you might imagine, my gifts led to beliefs that dictated a particular way of taking action, which then resulted in big success, in a very short period of time, but which I was never able to sustain. This is a pattern that I’ve seen throughout my life in everything from my relationship to self/others, my health/weight, my income/earning potential, my home/community and my work/career.
I’d start something with great enthusiasm and then when things didn’t go as planned or the energy died down, or I just didn’t get as big a result I had hoped for, as soon as I wanted it, I’d feel discouraged, disappointed and begin to doubt myself. Which would then result in me stopping whatever I was doing. Stopping allowed me to avoid the inevitable discomfort that would arise when I had to face the fact that what I really wanted was longevity, commitment, discipline, stability, security and safety.
Which were all the things I never had growing up.
Is this ringing true for you too?
Maybe your energetic archetype is different than mine but you can see how you’re being asked to do the very thing that you absolutely DO NOT want to do. This is how the Universe helps us. It asks us to become someone we’re not so we can be more than we are now.
I’ve been working with this energy my whole life and I’m only now understanding that it was the underlying beliefs that drove my behaviour which then created the results I experienced. I don’t know about you, but I certainly want to do whatever I can to train my beliefs to work for me, rather than against me.
This is just the first part of the two part process that I use myself to identify what’s keeping me stuck so I can turn my limiting beliefs around and make my mindset work FOR me, rather than against me. This is also the primary focus of the new private membership community because as you can see, how you do anything, is how you’re doing ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING in your life.
I’ll be totally honest with you though, it is so NOT comfortable for me to grow slow. Slow growth scares me. It makes me doubt that things are going to work out. I’m waiting for the other shoe to drop and for everything to fall apart. That’s why it’s so important for us to have a supportive community around us that understands what it takes to turn our old limiting beliefs around.
Otherwise, if you’re like me, you’ll pull the plug and move on before your dreams even get a chance to grow.
I’ll admit it, I want results and I want them fast. But this new private membership community is not about fast results. (That’s why it’s priced so affordably.) In fact, it’s just the opposite.
It’s about giving you the breathing room you need so you can learn how to grow at your own pace, build a business that can support your dreams and create a life that sustains your deepest needs and desires.
