Have you set some big and beautiful goals for the new year?
And have you set new year goals before, only to never end up achieving them?
Yep - me too (that is, before I learned cutting-edge mindset tools like NLP + hypnosis).
Because without these tools, it's hello major procrastination + self-sabotage...
Wouldn't you like to know how to overcome this.. once and for all?
Just click here to learn these life-changing tips from this week's Monday Night #REALTALK on Goals + Self-Sabotage, and implement them yourself starting today!
Here's some of the major shifts we talked about:
I wanted to talk with you about something super important for creating success in any area of your life… and yes, you guessed it, it comes down to your mindset.
I’ve been fascinated with studying the field of NLP this year, so I wanted to teach on the topic of ALWAYS ASSUMING THE BEST in your life, in your career, in your relationships, in your business.. (full in-depth video on this here)
A perfect example?
I just received access to go LIVE on LinkedIn after 5 months of applying, waiting, applying, waiting…
Did I give up? You know me - absolutely not!
I kept pushing. I kept assuming the VERY best.
I kept assuming that *obviously* LinkedIn would let me in on being able to go LIVE.
I kept expecting it would come my way.
And nearly half a year later.. It’s arrived.
And that’s why this topic is SO relevant - about getting something you’ve been waiting for, for months.
This is why we always need to be always assuming the best out of...
I'm sitting here in my cozy Toronto apartment thinking about all of the NO'S that I've heard this year while taking sales calls.
In fact, I've heard a massive amount of NO'S this year.
Clearly, hearing that many NO'S was not a part of my plan for promoting and selling the 2020 RISE coaching program.
Of course, sales calls are just one of the many ways many entrepreneurs, myself included, can have things go a little off-road, a little off-plan..
That's why last night on my weekly #REALTALK, we got into the nitty-gritty topic of how to pivot when things don't go as planned in your business.
Trust me, there's been so many times in the past year of being full-time in my coaching business where things didn't go as planned.
I cried on livestreams. I panicked on the floor of my bathroom. I worried and got in my own way.
I've been there - more times than I can count on two hands.
But here's the thing...
It doesn't matter how many times things don't work out according to...
Last night on my weekly #REALTALK we went deep into how self-doubt and comparison can literally cripple you at any stage of business (if you let it) and especially so when you're just starting out!
In fact, I could do the same:
Who am I to be a business coach? There's plenty of other business coaches out there, what even makes me different? Why would someone want to work with me?
You see, we could all go there - into that self-doubt and comparison trap..
Which is also a big reason why some people succeed and others don't. They let themselves get in their own way. It's not about what others are creating... it's about what YOU want to be creating!
Here's what I suggest reflecting on ASAP and implementing right away...
Well, let's just say last night was a wild Monday Night #realtalk.
I talked on a subject that most people in the online world aren't willing to talk about..
Which is the identity shift of a new coach, and the following identity shifts that happen after that (plus, the pitfalls where most people tend to get stuck - which is why they struggle to reach the next level in their life and business, even when they're seemingly doing "all the right things")
Here's the first two stages of the "identity journey" I talked about, but trust me.. this is just the tip of the iceberg - you're definitely going to want to grab yourself a notebook, your favourite pen and get cozy with me as I drop a lot of #realtalk ...
Struggling to own your "title" as a coach, scared to put yourself out there for fear of judgement from colleages, friends or family.. or worse, you've got a lot of inner dialogue along the lines of..
It's clearly the most common fear out there for new entrepreneurs.
Getting your face on social media is quite a big deal!!!
And although you might be seeing me show up online all the time and you're like:
"Mimi! It seems so easy for you! It's "natural" for you."
It sure wasn't easy for me either. Hello! I am human just like you.
It's funny because I've been practicing this muscle for the last 2 years now and I almost forgot what it's like when you are just starting out.
But I've been digging into the archives to analyze the journey I've been on...
As a fun exercise, I wanted to check out my very first video and for some reason, I can't find it.
I think I was so ashamed of how awkward it was that I decided to delete it...lol
It was a video of me explaining how I learned to put contact lenses on...lol how relevant haha!
But, I've found some pretty good ones in the early stages of my business and I really want you to check them out to see the evolution between Feb 2018 and...
Hear me out this morning.
If you are abandoning everything you're doing when it gets hard...
You are supposed to suffer when you grow.
It is okay if it's not "flowy" and "easy" and "effortless"!
IT DOESN'T MEAN THAT "IT'S NOT MEANT TO BE"
Wow, aren't we good to tell ourselves bullshit excuses!?
Am I right!?
Nothing that you desire that you don't already have will come easy.
If it's so "natural" for you right now it means that you aren't stretching yourself enough.
Sorry for the rant, but I needed to tell the world this morning!
I want to let you know that it hasn't been easy to get to where I am right now.
And I know damn well it won't be easy to get to where I'm heading.
It's not easy AND I FREAKING LIKE IT.
It's SIMPLE though.
Almost too simple.
But so damn hard.
The strategies are freaking easy to follow.
There's a step-by-step process.
With easy baby steps.
Which combined brings enormous...
Seriously... I'm shocked.
$100,000 in revenue in 5 months and 28 days.
It's crazy what can happen in just a few months when you put an intention out into the world.
In January 2019 I still had a job.
I was trying to build my coaching business but had no consistency in revenue.
I was desperate to go full-time on Happy on Mondays, but the truth is I didn't really believe in myself enough to make the jump.
I was scared shitless... Not even afraid to say it .
I've been so used to receiving paychecks every 2 weeks. It's like I didn't think it was possible to replace my $100,000/year salary with my business.
I was playing with Excel spreadsheets, trying to make the math work.
What I didn't know at that time is that the ingredient missing was actually my MINDSET.
I had to start seeing myself as a successful coach to become one, you know what I mean?
But shit, how the hell is that possible when you are literally just starting out!? (more on that topic below)
Does any of...
Oh Hello September!
I'm so fired up this morning because it's Back-to-School and there are 4 months left to 2019!
I remember this feeling so clearly.
Back to reality after summer months.
You know that feeling of going back to a routine that makes you sick in your stomach? Am I right?
Your boss is back from vacation, meetings are back-to-back in your calendar...
You're feeling hopeless, that's the reality you created for yourself.
Well, spoiler alert: you can change that and you don't have to wait until 2020.
2019 is YOUR year to get into ACTION.
Do you desire to be your own boss?
Are you sick and tired of not knowing where to start?
Do you have a business idea, but you're unsure HOW to make it happen?
Then, check out my 5 simple steps to get started right now:
STEP 1: Figure out what lights you up!
Building a business should start from there.
I can guarantee you that if it doesn't set your soul on fire, you might not stick to it as...
Where do big ideas and dreams come from?
It all starts from that 1 spark inside of you.
This desire for more…
Why do we tend to shut down those ideas for years?
We carry around that strong feeling, but we never act on it because we hope it might disappear with time.
Tell me, did this feeling disappear or did it grew even bigger and bigger as the years went by?
Yeah, that’s exactly what I thought…
This feeling grew inside of me for 6 years.
I would drive my car, listen to music and sing as loudly as I could feel like there was something so much bigger in front of me.
I would start noticing all those entrepreneurs making it happen for themselves and think to myself, why can’t I do it?
There was a fire in my belly that just wouldn’t stop burning. In fact, it grew bigger and bigger.
Until the compound effect of years in corporate chasing, the sun left me drained and meaningless.
It suddenly hit me. It...
