If you know me from my blog or social media, you may or may not know that I struggled with consistency in my business.
Sure: the money came in.
I had my first 5-figure month with a community of only 300 people, had my first $20,000 month just a few months later, and grew over 300% year over year for four consecutive years.
But, one of two things kept happening at each new level:
1. Crushing anxiety would eventually cause a drop in income
2. Expenses would keep me from getting ahead
In fact, after making over $260,000 in revenue one year, the following year I had to reduce my take home pay by two thirds because I didn’t feel safe with money.
To be honest: that’s just one of several cycles I had with money that kept me on the struggle bus.
After a couple months of terrible sales and unexpected expenses, I hit a bottom. I fell into a depression, and chose to ride the wave instead of fighting it.
And in the midst of my lowest spot: I started feeling gratitude.
I had an epiphany that I wasn’t a victim. I had the intuition that I actually had the answers all along, and ability to change my life.
And I finally took responsibility.
It wasn’t easy to admit.
And the best part (or the worst)
Getting out of these cycles had nothing to do with what I should DO…
…And it had everything to do with addressing who I AM.
Traditional mindset training tells us to change our thoughts, then we beat ourselves up when it doesn’t work.
Traditional mindset falls short, and it’s not your fault.
Mindset work is great, but in my experience, it’s just the FIRST step to improving self belief. (And self belief is NOT optional when you’re scaling to 7-figures and beyond.)
When we first start an online business, we’re obsessed with “the how”.
– How to build a site
– How to write great content
– How to become visible
– How to monetize
– How to grow
– How to build funnels
And it makes sense that we focus on these things, because while “mindset” is important, it doesn’t help much if we don’t also take the ACTION to reach the goals we’re striving for.
But at some point we have to address “mindset”. Because if you don’t believe it will work = then it won’t.
If you don’t address your mindset and self belief, then we tend to self sabotage and spin our wheels.
But even after that, there’s a lot that “the gurus” didn’t tell me about up-leveling, and it might be because even THEY didn’t know how to verbalize it.
✖️Sometimes saying more affirmations aren’t the answer.
✖️Sometimes pushing through “the suck” doesn’t work.
✖️Sometimes the data isn’t telling you the full story.
And here’s the truth:
“Mindset” work doesn’t always work, and it’s not your fault.
…You NEED to know the action steps to do things.
…You NEED to work on your mindset so you follow through.
But as you grow and expand, there’s a deeper level of work you need to do.
