As a Home based business owner/mother, have you ever got up in the morning and felt that you have achieved nothing. This feeling shows up in thoughts like; 1. My list of clients/prospects has not grown. There are no opt-ins to my list. 2. No one has enrolled into the services I offer OR bought my products. 3. My invoice is not yet paid. 4. I have not submitted the article I was supposed to do so yesterday. 5. Even though you wanted to create a Video for marketing/coaching, you could not do it.
I have felt this way many times and I am not afraid to admit that these thoughts do come up almost every day.Every day we perform our role as woman/mother/wife/ and want to achieve our daily goal in our business that we passionately ventured into.It can be very frustrating to have these thoughts come up again and gain, and if we don’t address them, it can be the biggest impediment to the growth of our business. Based on my own experience, I came up w a step by step system to address this frustration. Even though it appears silly to have a system to address these seemingly silly/unproductive thoughts, I found that becoming aware and addressing them can liberate you, create clarity and make it easy and effortless to accomplish your daily goal/task. You can try these steps and see if it works for you. Please feel free to share your comments and your experience.
As a Home based Business Owner/Entrepreneur/mother, we always WANT to create something of value, using what we are passionate about. Our thoughts manifest in our actions and the things we create. Hence in the morning when the above mentioned thoughts come up, I make a commitment to first acknowledge it as a NEGATIVE thought and it IS dis-empowering.
Next, I ask myself-Is this thought/feeling really helping to protect/safeguard me and helping me move towards the goal? If the answer is YES-I just choose accept the thought and Say to myself-Lalitha, it is in the best interest of you, your family and clients and everyone.It is a sign of stopping me from taking irresponsible action. If the answer is No, I go to step-3
I ask myself the question-Is this thought a distraction/barrier/Ego keeping me safe and pulling me away from my goal? If the answer is YES, I proceed to Step-4
I Sit in a quiet place and either say to myself or write in a Note Book. “Ego, I acknowledge you and thank you for showing up. I choose to see beyond the barrier into possibilities. I let go of the need to feel OR get disturbed by the roadblock and ALLOW myself to connect with my Higher self/soul/inner self/authentic self/child like self (whatever you may call it) and take action towards my goal/task of the day.
After allowing to connect with my soul, I seek Divine Guidance to give/lead me to the next step with clarity.
Now let us take one of the thoughts mentioned in the first paragraph and see how these 5 steps can be applied:
Thought-“My Invoice is not yet paid”
You acknowledge that this is a negative and dis-empowering thought.I am sure you will agree that, it is true.
Now ask the question-Is this thought/feeling really helping to protect/safeguard you and helping you move towards the goal?
The answer is obviously ‘No” You are in a business to offer services/products that you are passionate about and make a profit. You need to be concerned about unpaid invoice and take action.Now proceed to step-3
Is it a distraction/barrier/Ego keeping me safe and pulling me away from my goal? The answer is YES.Your goal is to make a profit in the business and you must be concerned about unpaid invoices. This thought is just a roadblock.
Now make a choice to let go of the need to feel bad/disturbed, as this thought is in the best interest of you/your family/clients. It is OK and ALLOW yourself to connect with the inner child (who always wants to do her/his best until she gets it).This process of allowing can be difficult. It needs practice. I personally use Yoga, meditation, gratitude journal and EFT to help ALLOW this connection to my inner child.
Now seek Divine guidance for revealing the next step. When you do this, you will have solid clarity and positive, guilt free way of taking the next step. You will be completely motivated to pick up the phone/send an email and ask for payment. You will also experience a telepathic connection with the creditor in a feel good/collaborative way to facilitate the payment transaction.
1. In the next 5 days, do the above 5 Step exercise when you develop negative thoughts. 2. If it helped you, feel free to share your experience with your family members, friends and clients or leave a comment.
