Living Fearlessly Like You Had No Idea: What Is Your Word For 2019?
2018 My Word Was Fearless…
And I lived that word over and over again. Very few people have seen behind the scenes of how damn tumultuous this year was. It was literally during Christmas last year that I had nothing left. I didn’t know how to make ‘it’ work.
I was working 100+ hours a week
My team wasn’t on the same page and we were putting out fires left and right
I wasn’t attracting the right clients
My ‘dream life’ in Hawai’i had turned into a incredibly lonely experience, finding myself with a broken engagement and my sister moving back to Alaska
There was endless cycle of 2 steps forward, 3 steps back
The ‘spark’ for business was just gone
I was depressed… ya, I said it.
There was one pivotal conversation with a friend where I shared my complete hopelessness. Even if I could make things ‘work’, what if I would never be happy?
Their advice? Own my fucking inner goddess, stop focusing on what I thought everything should be and focus on moving forward. So I did.
I gave my apartment, sold everything, had my ex watch my dog and I went to Atlanta to reset. I had NO idea that my whole LIFE and BUSINESS would change after that!
The story from here to there is long, and filled with many many lessons but the foundation was to operate in the new way…
Intuitively: Stop reading, taking courses, find a coach and make things happen.
Profit NOT Revenue Driven: Understand the two completely changed my entire business!
Unattached To Outcome: So much of life and business, we can map it out and strategize — which ironically is my speciality — but there are moments where we just have to live it, learn from it and adjust.
Stop Living Fear Based: When walking in purpose and walking in soul alignment and out of a place of serving, everything really does come together. You gotta have some business acumen so you don’t waste time, but all decisions came from what was right for my companies and not out of scarcity.
Stop Caring What People Thought: I found my voice, and I started speaking. Who knew that Compliments of Sharon, this very blog, would become a 6-figure company? Initially, this was a place where I would write and share ideas just to have a space where I could swear, and be ‘extra’ without fear of judgement. Now, I am my brand and my brand makes money!
Meditation: I’ve had soooo many people tell me over the years that I needed to meditate. Now, I’m the kind of person who hates getting massages because I can’t sit still that long and now you are asking me to DO NOTHING and THINK NOTHING every DAY?! Well… now it’s a daily practice and it is truly is transformative…
The results? 10lbs down with no added effort. Not one but TWO thriving businesses and I spend my days coaching, inspiring, motivating, training, writing and speaking. I am location independent. The right clients find me and it’s all like magic…
Which leads me to now…
I gave up the idea of resolutions a long time ago, but now I do have a “Word Of The Year”… and this year, it’s full transformation. Just the word “transformation” wasn’t enough, this year is all about the push. This is erasing that 40% of doubt that creeps in… even though I’ve learned to push past the doubt and plow forward, now I will skip the whole 'what if this crazy? Too lofty? Crazy?’ thought processes and just BE and Do.
