The Elephant in the Room

Ever do something that scares you?

When I do an activity that scares me, I know that I am growing as a person. As a person who has social anxiety, a place where I practice growing is Toastmasters.

When I create a speech, I think to myself, “What speech can I give that can cause me to grow?” As someone who experiences social anxiety, speaking about a topic that scares me is a good way for me grow. I set my intention on stepping out of my comfort zone and being open to failure.

When you have social anxiety and trying to create a business, you want to take big steps. That is because all of the mid steps between success triggers social anxiety. I understand. My mission plan has been,

1. Create Business
2. All the stuff I want to skip
3. Profit

The way to build myself up with confidence for the profit building activities I want to skip is to set my intention on something smaller. Instead of trying to create a speech that will win the International Speech Competition and get Oprah to see it on YouTube to get me to speak on her show, which will then solve all my problems. I set my intention to just grow as a person. My intention is one that I can achieve and celebrate easily.

Intention -> Action -> Celebration. They keys to success.

Do Not Let Social Anxiety Hold You Back

Do you have a dream? A passion? Do you let social anxiety hold you back?

If you can answer yes to all those questions then you are in the same boat as me.

I am someone who has experienced social anxiety since I was eight years old. The best way I could explain the experience is to imagine every time you go outside that everyone is paying attention to you. Not only are they paying attention to you, they are judging ever action that you do. And every action you make is wrong.

Social anxiety has kept me from a lot of good experiences over the years. Especially when it comes to running a business. I love helping people. I love inspiring people. I love working with my clients. Unfortunately, all of the activities it gets to clients triggers my social anxiety. Yes, I know trigger can be a trigger word for some people. Networking, calling up prospecting clients, and even discussing my business felt draining and left me feeling empty.

When I felt empty it would lead me to a cycle of feeling pumped about my business, doing all the activities I can to build it, and then feeling empty so I take a huge break.

In the last year and a half, I have done a lot of soul-searching and research on how to break myself of that habit. And I am here, right now ready to create the best 2017 ever!

I want to take you with me. You have followed me for a while now and I am so thankful for your support. My gift to you is a complimentary session Kick Social Anxiety In The Butt Session where we will shine Alight on your roadblocks, create clarity on your passion, have a plan for your dream, and feel energized and renewed for an amazing 2017!

Are You a Natural Entrepreneur?

Are you natural at selling? Do you find being an entrepreneur comes naturally to you? Does the act of networking, public speaking, and prospecting new clients fill you with joy?

If your answer is no to any of those questions, you are not alone. I have a confession to make. I am not a natural entrepreneur.

I have had a few coaches in my time to help me through the struggle of building a business. They keep on using metaphors such as, “You are either a government worker or an entrepreneur.” or calling people who aren’t muggles, like in the movie Harry Potter. There I was sitting in the seat thinking to myself, “I am a government working muggle.”

E-mailing my newsletter, booking speaking events, networking, book selling, and marketing do not come naturally to me. In fact, for the longest time, these activities would drain me and cause me to want to quit. However, I cannot quit because I have a passion and love what I do.

So the question I had is what do I do about not being a natural?

The answer changed my mindset. When you get your mindset around your desires, you can move mountains. There is nothing you cannot accomplish when you get in the right frame of mind. In fact, selling and marketing are skills. If they can be skills, they can be learned. You just need to get in the mindset where you are open and willing to learn and willing to suck at it when you are starting out. As Jake the Dog said in Adventure Time, “Sucking at something is the first step to being kind of good at it.”

One way I have changed my mindset around is using my
Emotion Elation Engine. A course that is designed to use visualization and anchoring from NLP to align your emotions with your desires. I have used this technique help me get excited about networking and make sure the experience does not leave me feeling empty. In fact, it has helped me turn my business to leaving me empty to leaving me elated! Because of the Emotion Elation Engine, I am excited about it.
