Sunday 3rd Jan 2016
So its all been talk over Christmas and the first two days of the year, will I do this or won’t I??
Well it looks like I’m in, its started…… the seed is beginning to take root.
I’ve decided to commit to 366 days of sincerely building my business from my heart, with love peace and wisdom, just to see if I can do it.
I heard a recording by a man named Jamie Smart a few days ago; in it he said this;
“You can do whatever you put your mind to,
If you are willing to take responsibility for your life
And take responsibility for the results you want to create”
After listening I decided that I’m ready and willing to take responsibility and I have something I want to create.
As I write this, It’s Sunday 3rd January 2016 and I have no idea how this year is going to unfold, I have plans, but no way of knowing what will work and what won’t and how different things will be a year from now, that feels really exciting, something that doesn’t exist right now could if I create it!
So I decided to start this diary/blog to document how my plans for 2016 work out for me. And to share what happens with you.
Will I keep going?
My first two challenges are to keep doing this for a full twelve months, through all the highs and the lows and to keep up with writing it down and sharing it with you how ever much my fear screams at me to stop and hide, especially if things go wrong, as they inevitably will from time to time.
So first things first, I have an idea for how to take my business further and reach more people, and to have more of a positive impact on the world, to me it seems like a great idea, its not the first great idea I’ve ever had and I don’t suppose it will be the last, I hope what will be different this time is that it’ll go past the ‘fun idea’ stage and become something real out in the world, that when the big scary thoughts start coming I will find the courage not to listen to them and to just simply continue what I’ve started,
It’s my intention to create a financially viable and sustainable community that will change the way the world views relationships and teach people how to love and be loved unconditionally so they are free to lead happy, peaceful and fulfilling lives and have long lasting and loving relationships.
In order to do this I want to bring together, via a membership community, people who want the same thing and who will support each other on their journey to building great relationships, and to knowing and loving themselves better.
The two things that are really important to me here is that it is something of real value to the people involved and that it’s financially viable.
My first action, one I’ve already started during the Christmas break, is to complete my ‘next step for my business’ business plan for this viable, sustainable, useful business and get crystal clear on a go forward action plan for myself.
I want the plan to be so clear that if I were to be asked what it was, anyone would understand my intentions, and know if it was something they were interested in or not.
It looks to me right now as if I will measure the success by how much people find it useful and it’s financial viability, lets see if I continue to feel that way.
The Background Story
I will share a little bit of background with you about how I ended up here writing this diary/blog and then lets look to the future and see what we can create.
In 2009 my children and I ended up in a women’s refuge, my life was in a mess.
I left the refuge determined to rebuild my life and help my children rebuild theirs.
In 2011 I came across a simple understanding of three principles that explain how life works, since then my life has dramatically improved, I have a great relationship with my wonderful man and my, now grown up, children are all doing very well.
The only area in my life that’s not exactly how I would choose it to be is around money, I don’t believe in asking anyone else to listen to their own wisdom and to follow it, when I’m not asking the same of myself and doing it to the best of my ability in the moment.
Well I have to confess that my wisdom has been shouting at me to sort my money stuff for longer than I care to admit, so here goes, and to add to my shame and discomfort I’ve decided to put it out there and share it with you, as honestly as I can. I’m also inviting you to do the same, lets go on this journey together. If you have something you are ready to do but are not taking action on, especially If it’s relationship stuff or money stuff, let me know, I would really LOVE to hear from you.
A heads up on how I am going to do this.
My whole life is now lived (as best as I can) from an understanding of the three simple spiritual principles that I was lucky enough to come across, and this isn’t going to be any different, it’s going to be 3ps for me all the way. I’m done with acting from stress and anxiety, and I’m going to do this from a place of joy, love and wisdom, as best I can manage. It feels like the right time to step into this challenge and see what happens when you have fun but are totally committed to creating something worthwhile out in the world, whilst not being attached to the outcome. (that might prove to be the most difficult)
So today is the day to get some more clarity in the ‘next step for my business’ business plan. I will share with you what I come up within my next blog.
