What had I already done?
Well, in the world-view of the tantrum-throwing teen-ager that sometimes takes up residence in my head, I had already grown. I had already âbeen there, done that.â No more lessons, thankyouverymuch.
Hereâs what I share with entrepreneurs all the time:Â (And with my inner teen-ager.)
Your business is about YOU. Your success is about your awareness. And once you understand that nothing that happens is separate from you â then you master success.
This is not about striving for perpetual meditative bliss. Â This is about living from a place of power and the willingness to listen to the on-going guidance it brings.
Almost 2000 people have gone through my Uplevel Your Lifeâ˘ Mastery Program. I regularly hear from those who tell me their business got better as they did the program. Or they made more money. OR landed their biggest client ever.Â Theyâre often surprised because âitâs not even a business program!â
Iâm never surprised. Â Â Success is about awareness.Â Awareness can transform your success on every level.
Here are the 7 Laws of Awareness that create entrepreneurial success:
1 â Awareness of your body.
Oprah says that your life is always speaking to you.
Iâd go a step further.Â Iâd tell you that even before the externals of your life speak to you, your body speaks to you.
Learning to listen to these signals is critical to your success.Â Some call it intuition. Some call it âgut instinct.âÂ Either way, you must pay attention.
Two times last year I ignored my body signals and listened instead to my rational mind.Â Both decisions turned out badly. (Yes, it took 2 lessons â but I finally got it! Never ignore my intuition!)
2 â Awareness of where youâre going.
Some people have a 3-year plan. Some prefer a vision infused with feeling.
No matter your style, you need to know where youâre going.Â Decisions are a constant companion as you become more successful. If you donât know where youâre going, then decisions will be that much harder and daily priorities wonât be clear.
3 â Awareness of the present moment.
I can text, tweet and tech with the best of âem.
And I also know I canât live in a perpetual state of distraction.
We thrive in the present moment. Â Itâs the only real thing there is. Â Itâs where all your answers reside!
Spend regular time unplugged.Â Practice just being. This is not just for yogis. Itâs for YOU.
4 â Awareness of your ârulesâ and limitations.
âI have kids. I canât be successful.â
âI canât do that.Â It would mean travel. I donât want to travel.â
âI donât want more money. Itâll turn me into an ogre.â
Most people bump up against their ârulesâ or limiting beliefs and donât even stop to ask if theyâre true.
Thatâs because itâs easier to blindly accept them than step out of our comfort zone. (We think our rules keep us safe. Mostly they keep us stuck.)
Every time I uplevel, I bump into a new set of my own rules I didnât know existed!
5 â Awareness of the Analytics.
You might be reading this and thinking, âYup! Got this stuff down pat! Just donât make me do numbers!â
I hear ya, sistah!Â No one has EVER said to me, âGirl, you were born to do numbers, graphs and charts!â
For years, I thought this meant that the Universe would somehow make it all work for me as I blissfully turned my back on those nasty left-brain atrocities.
What I found out was that I had my own set of rules and limitations that were holding me back. I had to step in.
So, I hire people who love this stuff. Â Â And I learn and grow from letting them teach me.
And dare I say, itâs sorta fun?
6 â Awareness of your peeps.
Why become successful at all?
To get your peeps to the other side.
When you reach more people, you add more value and you change the world.Â (And yes, you make more mon-ey.)
As this process builds, you must be aware of your peeps, how you market to them, and how your systems work for them.
Many people fail because they never get clear about this, hoping instead that peeps will just âget it.â
7 â Awareness of your victories.
Hereâs the secret:
Be grateful to your big olâ self for even the smallest achievement, and youâll create more.
Be grateful to the big olâ Universe for even the smallest gift, and youâll attract more.
