Tapped In, Tuned In, Turned On: The 7 Awareness Laws that Attract Success

Written by Christine Kane

Peace at Work“How is this even freakin possible?” the voice inside my head moaned as I faced a challenge in my business.  “I’ve already done this.”

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 “been there, done that.” No more lessons, thankyouverymuch.

Here’s what I share with entrepreneurs all the time:  (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 – then you master success.

This is not about striving for perpetual meditative bliss.  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 Life™ 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.  They’re often surprised because “it’s not even a business program!”

I’m never surprised.   Success is about awareness.  Awareness can transform your success on every level.

Here are the 7 Laws of Awareness that create entrepreneurial success:

1 – Awareness of your body.

Oprah says that your life is always speaking to you.

I’d go a step further.  I’d 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.  Some call it intuition. Some call it “gut instinct.”  Either way, you must pay attention.

Two times last year I ignored my body signals and listened instead to my rational mind.  Both decisions turned out badly. (Yes, it took 2 lessons – but I finally got it! Never ignore my intuition!)

2 – Awareness of where you’re going.

Some people have a 3-year plan. Some prefer a vision infused with feeling.

No matter your style, you need to know where you’re going.  Decisions are a constant companion as you become more successful. If you don’t know where you’re going, then decisions will be that much harder and daily priorities won’t be clear.

3 – Awareness of the present moment.

I can text, tweet and tech with the best of ‘em.

And I also know I can’t live in a perpetual state of distraction.

We thrive in the present moment.  It’s the only real thing there is.  It’s where all your answers reside!

Spend regular time unplugged.  Practice just being. This is not just for yogis. It’s for YOU.

4 – Awareness of your “rules” and limitations.

“I have kids. I can’t be successful.”

“I can’t do that.  It would mean travel. I don’t want to travel.”

“I don’t want more money. It’ll turn me into an ogre.”

Really?

REALLY?!!!???

Most people bump up against their “rules” or limiting beliefs and don’t even stop to ask if they’re true.

That’s because it’s 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 didn’t know existed!

5 – Awareness of the Analytics.

You might be reading this and thinking, “Yup! Got this stuff down pat! Just don’t make me do numbers!”

I hear ya, sistah!  No one has EVER said to me, “Girl, you were born to do numbers, graphs and charts!”

Ever.

Not once.

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.   And I learn and grow from letting them teach me.

And dare I say, it’s sorta fun?

6 – Awareness of your peeps.

Question:

Why become successful at all?

Answer:

To get your peeps to the other side.

When you reach more people, you add more value and you change the world.  (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 “get it.”

7 – Awareness of your victories.

Here’s the secret:

Be grateful to your big ol’ self for even the smallest achievement, and you’ll create more.

Be grateful to the big ol’ Universe for even the smallest gift, and you’ll attract more.

Nuff said.

Hi Christine!

I love Wednesdays – because I get my “uplevelling” first thing in the morning. Thank you!

For me one of the hardest was number 7 – for the longest time I would focus on the road in front of me and everything I hadn’t done instead of taking the time to look at everything I HAD done which – now that you taught me to count it, record it, share it and celebrate it, is a long list of awesome!

Thanks for these reminders.

Great Maggie! And all the success you’ve created is a testimony to all the awareness you have!

So looking forward to the training with you and Max Simon today. I’m looking for my tribe and have become keenly aware that they are not necessarily people I know today. They’re out there, and I’m ready to find them!

Kay – I hope you had an amazing time on the webinar. I just love Max – and he truly serves his tribe from a place of integrity and clarity.

Hi!
The area of awareness that most struck a chord with me is awareness of my peeps. Right now I feel isolated; my head is full of my idea and how it can make a difference, but the picture of who needs it is blurry. It scares me.

And wow, does it feel amazing to admit that!
Happy Wednesday,
Sara

Congratulations on being brave enough to admit that Sara! I honor you and am grateful for your trust!

Start small with your peeps, your tribe. It’s often a lot more simple than we want to make it. Now that you are aware – the journey begins!

Christine, Thank you for sharing your sage wisdom with us all. I can honestly say your articles are THE ONLY ones I read in my email and stop everything to do so. Fantastic article, thank you!

I love:
“This is about living from a place of power and the willingness to listen to the on-going guidance it brings.”

I’m learning to do break during my day to refocus on my intention, to be present :-)

Thanks Ana! I’m doing that same thing. 2pm meditation!

I will admit that my biggest challenge is STILL awareness of my body and awareness of the present moment. I even DO yoga. Starting my business in January and working hard to get it off the ground. I STILL make excuses that keep me on the treadmill of trying to get things going and not taking time for me or to unplug. Progress not perfection! Thanks for your reminders!

Christine Kane Reply:

Erica – are you getting some support and accountability?? Don’t try to do this alone! Get some training and help! I say this from experience… having a business is too hard to do on your own!

Christine Kane October 3, 2012 at 9:48 pm

OKay — I promised. So I’ll share mine!

#5 was the hardest to really focus on. I was in the “build it and they will come” camp for a long time. I finally had to step into the numbers, the tracking, etc – and STOP taking it all personally. And yes, that breakthrough has been worth the challenge!

Hi Christina! Yes, I too have gone through your Uplevel Your Life Mastery Program and more than once! I still listen to the audios and follow my mantras. I learn new things every time. So, one of my challenges is trusting my intuition and not listening to those voices. My rules and limitations come up every time I make a step forward. I talk to those voices regularly saying “I hear you, but I a moving on to bigger and better things” (you taught me well!). Your program allowed me to make some major changes in my life so I can now work on creating my dream. I am eternally grateful and honored to have you as my mentor! I hired someone to do my website, I opened a business account, a paypal account, and begin writing all in the same day!
Now, I am trying to absorb any information and work on my business every chance I get. I still have a day job and although it is easier…..it takes time away from my business. Now I find that my challenge is to focus and work your system methodically!!!

Awareness of my peeps. Or perhaps not. I’m pretty aware of my peeps, but I have this weird limiting rule that I can’t charge money to help them. Kind of a major limiting belief for a life coach! Thanks for the article!

Christa Sutton November 14, 2012 at 12:15 pm

Loved this article Christine! Thanks! I would have to say it’s a toss up between awareness of analytics and my peeps. Am taking steps toward success in those areas and overcoming my own “rules” by diving in setting some huge goals for my business and website by year end. Thanks again!!!

I’m not 100% positive what I’m not aware of — perhaps it is because I’m not aware? I do know I have a bit of a block on gratitude sometimes. I often feel like being grateful is somehow “silly” and I have to push past that each time I say “thank you” or “I am grateful.” It’s getting easier, but it is still with me.
