This week’s question comes from me to you!
Do you know what kind of a relationship you have with your career and/or your business? And, why is this extremely crucial to your success?
This may sound like a funny question, however, the truth is, we are in relationship with everything in our lives, including our business and/or our career. So, why does knowing what kind of a relationship you have with your career or business so important? Please don’t miss this. It could change everything!
Think about what makes up a relationship. There is you and the other. In addition, whether you realize it or not, you have a perception of yourself relative to the other person, and a perception of the other person relative to you. So, you with all of your known and unknown perceptions and ideas, constitute your relationships.
So, how do you currently react to your perceived idea about who your business/career is relative to you? Let me share something profound with you, my story…
I have noticed lately that I have been reluctant to commit myself to many programs and projects. It has been very difficult for me to understand because I totally love what I do, and I have so many ideas.
Well, upon my own reflection, I considered how I was seeing my business in relation to me and vice versa. I proceeded to personify my business for fun. (As human beings, it is easy for us to imagine being in relationships when we think in terms of people and our beloved animals.)
I saw something very strange and very telling. Imagine this scenario for a moment. You’re in a relationship with someone who’s hair is on fire; they’re breathing down your neck, and they’re shouting directives and insults at you to hurry up and go, go, go. There’s no time to rest, no time to play, and no time to rejuvenate. This personified image is telling you that you’re too slow, you’re going to miss out, and you just need to take massive action, action action, etc. etc. etc. Yikes!
This image of my business had taken on a driving, bully persona that demanded that I “make it happen” right now. Keep in mind that this is very different from dealing with your inner critic who has something negative to say about everything you do and believes that you are not good enough.
As I saw this image, I could feel myself shrinking by the minute. I just wanted to run and hide. I really needed to go away and pretend that she (my career) was not there. This was the only way I could protect myself from burning out again. Well, guess what my procrastination has been doing for me? It’s been attempting to protect me from burning out again, just like I have done so many times before!
So, where did this ugly idea come from? The truth is, I have been driven by my own beliefs about what it takes to have a successful business – to work, work, work and never play or rest. I’ve been driven by these beliefs and habits for a very long time. My old conditioning had created a subconscious image of my career to be that of an insensitive, hard core driver!
Well, needless to say, I have changed this image. My career is now a very respectful and adoring lady who is fluid like water and knows she has the power to attract perfect clients to me. She understands my energy profile and brings me encouragement and power. She guides me where to go, what to do, and who to meet.
While there is a lot of inner work behind the scenes, this realization and transformation has been incredibly powerful and freeing! I no longer give credibility to the demanding voice of my old career image telling me what I “should” do to be successful. I am now free, and I’m in alignment with who I am. Success without being authentic is so not worth it to me, is it to you?
For further information and assistance in transforming your career into a loving and authentic entity that wants success for you your way, please contact me and let’s see if this inner work could benefit you! My best to you for all of the peace, power, and joy that you deserve!
In love and abundance,
“Dream it, own it, and make it REAL”
