During challenging times, our old patterns have a tendency to resurface.
This is completely NORMAL.
This doesn’t mean you’re broken or all the work you did before didn’t ‘fix’ you…’cause you were never broken in the first place and there’s nothing to ‘fix’.
This simply means you’re a human having a human experience right now.
Given that we’re in a freaking global pandemic right now, it’s NORMAL if your brain is kicking up some of its old patterns because they feel comfortable and safe. The same thing you want to feel.
So, before you go beating up on yourself because some of your old ‘stuff’ is coming up let’s clear this up before your brain quicksands and threatens to sabotage your business.
Welcome to being human. And, how about instead of giving yourself a hard time, seeing this as a beautiful opportunity to notice your thoughts and some of the things your brain wants to hand you.
After all, mindset work isn’t an eraser or one-and-done kinda thing. In fact, not to create a story, but you can expect some of your old stories to give you a visit right about now.
A loving reminder that this is normal and the point of mindset work isn’t to suddenly become a robot, it’s to be able to manage your mind when the very normal HUMAN thoughts that don’t serve you come up because they will, so you can process and move through them with more ease...you know, so you can consciously choose to show up and rock your business like the boss you are even when things are challenging and your brain feels like it’s on fire.
So, let’s remove the expectations that mindset work is a magic pill that gets rid of everything uncomfortable and the story that you’re doing it wrong if you’re thinking or feeling anything less than ‘high vibe’.
Managing your mind is exactly what it sounds like: a way to manage your thoughts (not get rid of them!!), so it’s easier and quicker to move through the -ish your brain hands you, so you can show up and manage your business and life.
The sooner you stop trying to rid yourself of your ‘stuff’, the easier it is to *actually* manage your mind, let go of what doesn’t serve you, and choose the thoughts and actions that set you up for success.
If I could tell you one thing right now, it would be this: you can’t fuck it up unless you stop showing up.
Permission to get it wrong because you’re choosing to lead and be seen.
Permission to not know all the answers because you’re serving.
Permission to feel the feels because you’re processing.
Permission to get a ‘no’ and not close a sale because you’re making offers.
Permission to have a mindset wobble because you’re human and that’s a part of managing your mind.
Permission to say something that triggers someone else, repels someone, or doesn’t sit with someone because you’re speaking your truth the best you know how.
Permission to ‘fail’ because you’re putting yourself out there.
Permission to believe these are ALL a part of build, growing, and scaling a profitable business you love - right now - and always.
Let yourself be human. Stop making yourself wrong. Manage your mind instead of trying to erase it.
And, truly, you can’t fuck it up right now unless you get in your own way and stop showing up.
Sending love and wishing you your version of success.
