One Simple Daily Habit to Grow Your Income
This week I’m running my first ever international retreat, in beautiful Bali. It’s kind of AWESOME to think that this dream I’ve had for so long, of running retreats with amazing kickass women in beautiful luxury places, has now come to life! Yesterday, in between copious amounts of caffeine, a few cheeky chocolate truffles, and a 2-hour indulgent day spa treatment I surprised the girls with (gotta have that quiet mind time if you want to let the real creativity flow!) we spoke all things wealth and dream life creation.
We covered a lot of ground, and did some of the usual work around painting the detailed ‘big picture’ vision for the business and life you want to create and then designing a plan to work FROM (as opposed to towards) that vision, but there is one thing in particular I shared with the girls that I would say is the MOST powerful daily habit if you’re serious about seeing your income grow.
I was reminded of just how powerful that habit is when I sat down on Sunday night just gone and began my yearly ‘closing ceremony’. I’m a little ahead of myself already wrapping up 2014 I know, but can’t resist starting to really map out my dreams for the New Year already!
As I journaled and dreamt, it occurred to me to look back over some of my end of year/ start of new workbooks from the previous years. To be honest I was kind of nervous to do so, as 2011 – 2013 were some of the toughest years of my business life and I felt a little scared at the feelings that might come up, or the judgement I might place on myself seeing goals I’d set that hadn’t all come to life.
And truth be told – there was a little bit of that! It’s funny to read my own words around my 2015 money goals – which are essentially a statement of the amount I’m committed to making next year with the ‘how’ being that I don’t know or really CARE how, it’s just happening – as compared with my end 2012 money goals, for example.
I was so caught up in DETAIL.
I was so caught up in having the best PLAN.
I could barely even fit all my planning and detail on the page, I’d so carefully mapped out every possible thing I could and ‘would’ sell, how many units, done calculations within my calculations to get to a number that added up.
Of course it never worked out that way.
Does it ever?
I’ve really learned over the past few years that the only thing that MATTERS when it comes to setting your goals and intentions is that you set them, and be specific about what you’re asking for. From there if you really FEEL like it by all means make a plan, but honestly? The more tied you are to a particular plan and ‘this is how it has to be’, the less likely you’ll get to the outcome you want.
Your FOCUS is on the plan.
Which by definition means that it is NOT on the outcome.
It was funny – and to be honest more pride-inducing than judgement-inducing, which is nice – to see how far my MINDSET has come around money and success, just in the past 2 years.
And it blows my mind that in my end of 2012 workbook I wrote about having gone from making $100 a week-ish online to over 1k a day online by the end of that year, and NOW my business easily does many thousands of dollars a day and climbing.
[pq]Things can change so quickly when you decide to let them![/pq] And it really makes me wonder –
What will I be recording in my end of 2015 workbook?
I know for a fact that if I keep focusing on success and money in the way I have NOW learned to it my income in the next 12 months will EASILY have MORE than doubled.
Or whatever I intend to happen.
What are your plans for the rest of this year and for 2015?
I can tell you one thing with absolute certainty. There’s no point doing copious amounts of intricate planning and how to.
That’s the OLD way of setting goals, and what’s more I’ll bet it’s something you’ve already DONE time and time again.
Has it gotten you to PRECISELY where you want to be? Or are you looking back at the end of yet another year and swearing that really, no really! –
Next year is going to be YOUR year.
There is one very simple daily habit I’d like to share with you that I GUARANTEE will increase your income, if you choose for it to do so.
Focus on the outcome.
That’s it lovely.
The truest and most transformative things are always the very best.
Set your internal compass to WHERE YOU WANT TO BE not what you think you have to DO (or be!) in order to get there.
Does it really MATTER how you get there so long as you end up in the right place?
It’s up to you of course.
You can plan your little heart out if that makes you feel good –
Devise the MOST beautiful of pathways –
Just don’t be surprised if the road they take you on is the road THEY TAKE YOU ON rather than the road YOU ultimately need to get to your dreams.
Of course the truth is that even with the most attentive focus and the very best intent, life has a sneaky way of trying to ensnare you back into distraction, or lists of Things You Must Do, or bright shiny ideas, and it’s easy for another month, another year to pass by with barely a check in to your ultimate dreams.
This is one reason I’ve created It’s Only Money, Honey. It’s THE business and money breakthrough program for women who want it all, KNOW they’re gonna HAVE it all, and just need that help, accountability and push to GET it all.
It’s Only Money, Honey! was created for you if you repeatedly seem to find yourself stuck in patterns of scarcity, lack, self-doubt or simply not being able to finally realise the TRUE wealth you know you were born for.
It’s about figuring out your shit and then getting the fuck OVER it – fast.
But really what it’s about is putting yourself in an environment of actively and repeatedly pointing that internal compass to where you SAY you want to go.
Isn’t it time you REALLY let the good times roll?
