A Consistent Mistake Heart Based Business Owners Make
For me, the definition of a successful business is one that satisfies you heart, mind, and soul. The work brings you joy. You impact the world with your gifts and your gifts are acknowledged. You are rewarded in many ways, not the least of which is financially. You have all the time you need. You continue to grow as a person and as a spiritual being, and you elevate your work and ability to bring your gifts to the world each time this happens.
In order to allow this kind of business and personal life to unfold, there is one central tenet you must follow: you must fully and completely allow yourself to be YOU. You must fully value the gifts you have to offer and how you wish to bring them to the world.
What I see consistently with heart and spirit based business owners, however, is that they are very uncomfortable claiming full acceptance of their gifts and abilities. They seem to be constantly waiting for something external to prove the internal.
Waiting for the high paying clients. The unending flow of money. The big list. The big endorsement from a respected member of their community.
Energetically speaking, this is completely backwards.
How can you be magnetic to a flow of your perfect customers when you are waiting to claim the right to those perfect customers until they show up?
The Mistaken Belief
The mistaken belief that we heart based business owners continue to create from is that there is something wrong with claiming our divine gifts; that something bad will happen if you completely claim your gifts.
I believe this stems from a fear that stepping in and claiming these gifts will somehow turn you into an egotistical megalomaniac who cares about nothing but your own success. That by simply stepping fully into your light, you will cast a huge shadow that will end up hurting those you intended to help.
This mistaken belief is accidently imprinted into our unconscious in many different ways: religious traditions, judgment from people who see our brilliance as threatening (because it shows them where they have work to do), wanting to be liked, and many more.
When you operate from full acceptance of your divine gifts, you are operating from your divine spark. In this place, it simply isn’t possible to turn into that egotistical megalomaniac.
When you are operating from your divine essence, you are not only holding yourself as sacred, but all whom you touch. In this sacred space, you only have connection. In this space, you are nothing but authentic and your clients can sense this immediately.
What can you release to allow yourself to more fully step into full acceptance of who you are? What can you release, right now to fully and completely love yourself?
The more you are able to step into this divine place, the more your ideal business will unfold around you.
