The Heart-Centred Entrepreneur Blog...
“Believe in yourself and all that you are. Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle.” – Christian D. Larson.
If you are a woman in business, or aspiring to be, no doubt you have been stopped by the 'F' word??
I am talking about FEAR.
It's an emotion that for some, is a driving force for action. Unfortunately for most, especially women taking on entrepreneurship, it is paralysing.
Have you felt the fear monster take over... heart racing, you break out in a cold sweat, your tummy does cartwheels and you get flooded with confusion and doubt?
I know these feeling all too well. Not only during my 20 years in business, but through multiple traumas and the school of hard knocks prior to that.
But dear Sister reading this, there is light at the end of the dark scary tunnel, and today I want to share 4 ways you can start to reframe and look through a lens of POWER, COURAGE & RESILIENCE.
In fact, if you want to hang around me, I can show you the ways I have developed what I call "Kick*ss Confidence" and step into your power girlfriend!! I got your back!
I want your beautiful business to SHINE, and I want you to LOVE it with so much enthusiasm and passion.. so keep reading.
So lets go!! This is just the 'tip of the old iceberg', so we will get straight into 4 ways to start building your confidence muscle and Step into Your Power.
If you are ready... say "READY"👊
This is a doozy!! We might both need to lay on the couch for this one... In a nut shell, it's all BS!
Well this can stand for bull sh*it... but I am referring to your Belief System. I want to say upfront, It's not your fault!! Well, the initial programming you got when you were little, via your parents, teachers, and other institutions that forced their BS into you.
However.. disclaimer here. Once you have awareness about this, it is YOUR responsibility to do something about it! There are many deep rooted psychological aspects of fear and self-doubt. Once you become aware, this is a pivotal step, and now you can take both personal and professional growth steps to start to redefine your narrative. This is so empowering in itself, because you can now see there is a way to confidently step into your power, embracing growth and expansion with your true authenticity.
I had plenty of coaches and mentors along the way.... remember.. You are not alone.
My student Susannah said " Lisa has a wonderful blend of science and practical tools to move beyond belief systems that often hold us back from flying."
People really are giving 'airtime' to the overused "Superpower" word, but dear friend, you OWN it!! There is a beautiful unique gift you have that the world is waiting for. Only you, in your special, quirky or nurturing or 'woo' way can do what you do!
When you run a heart centred business, the ONLY way to show up is the REAL you! How can you attract your dream clients if you are pretending to be someone else?
This is one of the first things I do a DEEP DIVE with when I am working with a new client.
What comes to mind when you think of these names... Tony Robbins, Oprah, Amy Porterfield, Gary Vaynerchuck, Mel Robbins... they just 'do them'. It's not an act, and their powerful Brands are them! You my precious goddess are no different.
Being YOU will make you stand out, trust me, it's your Superpower.
Hmmm Mindset Mastery is also thrown around a lot! It actually gets up my goat... (Aussie term LOL) There is a HUGE difference between talking about it online and actually living and embodying it in EVERY thing you do. You cannot have a 'part time' attitude about mastering your mind.
Man, the amount of obstacles I have had to overcome forced my to embody this for survival (that's a story for another time!)
It's important to have a daily practice, or dedicate a small block of time each day, even if it's 10minutes. You can listen to any audio/podcast while driving, shopping, food prep to strengthen you mind, but also rewire a new level of thinking and feeling about who you are becoming.
There are gazzillions of resources online for you to start to master your mind for confidence and self empowerment. I also recommend getting coaches and mentors for your business journey if you truly want to bring your million dollar idea to life, scale and make impact.
I have had multiple coaches and mentors for decades, all great leaders have a coach! You can start to master your mind with 5 powerful audio trainings I put together from my own experience on how to Build Kick*ss Confidence.
Building a heart-centred business is not just strategy and tactics. I know you probably already have a passion for particular modalities, otherwise you would not be reading this.
To lead with heart, also means vulnerability, and that feminine side of you Sister can absolutely have Kick*ss Confidence.
For years, I have used mindful techniques such as meditation, breath work, quantum visualisation & mind movies, tai chi & qigong. Actually I was introduced to metaphysics and the above practices at the age of 14. I believe these modalities have been the main pre cursors to my courage, resilience and success.
Don't worry if you are not familiar with holistic practice. What I do encourage if you start with some basic mindfulness practice daily.
What is Mindfulness? It's a big topic, but if I were to sum it up, it's being present with a quite, clear, calm mind. YOU are in the drivers seat, not your emotions.
Ahhhh I could talk about this forever.. in fact I'll write a blog about some of these mindful practices and do some myth busting about affirmations, goal setting, journaling etc.
For now dear Sister, I want to leave you with a short TO-DO list.
Give yourself a beautiful gift of 10 minutes.. either RIGHT NOW or tonight before you go to bed.
