|The Aspiring Waitress||
With the start of the New Year, I've noticed that not too many people are excited about going back to work over the holidays. Some wished they'd never had them so that they don't feel the joy-pain contrast so heavily and others wished that their vacations would never end. Others, are simply looking forward to their next vacation. One thing that all of these folks have in common is high-resistance earnings. I was introduced to the concept by Matt O'Grady on a call he did with Jeannette Maw and Lisa Hayes of Good Vibe Coach Academy. They weren't talking about get-rich-quick schemes or even about coaching when he brought up the topic of letting the income flow without resistance, in plain language, making money without hating what you're doing. At another point in time, that sentiment might have come in one ear and out the other but at this new beginning and struggling myself to keep my personal integrity intact while earning a living, it hit home. Imagine doing something that required you to be totally yourself, loving what you're doing and getting paid well for it? Now that's flow! I have been proud to bring in an income and support my family while working on a part-time basis and earning pretty good money when my husband asked me if the lady he married is gone because we have a baby or because I'm tired or is she gone forever? I hardly remember her, me. Hope, sparkle, faith, magic, fun. I mourned her loss for a moment until my faith was rekindled knowing that I too could enter the flow of low-resistance earning. The catch is, you have to know who you really are and what you really love in order to come up with your own formula for bring in the flow without losing your personal flow. Depending on how far you've gone down the path of shutting out your heart's longing, it might not be that hard to get back. There is no quick fix or formula but it sure is worth some time and contemplation to get you back to being a bit more of who you really are and from there, spread that to all aspects of your life including relationships, work and your home. In what aspects of your life to you have to adjust who you are and what you love just to keep the peace, keep the job, keep things together. What are you willing to let go of this year?
