When You Can’t Get Yourself To Focus On Your Business…

May 11, 2022

Firstly, welcome to being human. We have 982374982364 distractions around us 24/7 as well as all the other humans and their needs.

I remember starting my business and realizing that everyone and their mother needed something all the time.

I remember the frustration and anger I felt that I never had time for myself to do what I needed to do. I’m a Manifestor (human design) I need uninterrupted flow time to get the juices flowing and get in the zone.

IN THE ZONE I accomplish 10x more in one hour than I do out of the zone in a week. It took a minute to realize this.

But then…. boundaries.
And THEN… non-negotiables.

First I got a crown from amazon and told the kids, when mom is wearing this I am not to be interrupted. They learned that if they let me be, soon enough I’d be done, and then I’d be much more pleasant hanging out with them.

I learned that EVERYONE is happier when I have clearly set boundaries and time to do what makes my Soul Breathe.

Then I had to learn WHAT THE HECK I am doing during that time. When I finally sit down to work, what is it exactly that I am doing to move the needle to make sure I am growing and thriving in my business?

So I learned my non-negotiables.
Journal… create a vision for my day.
Blog… let my soul sing… say all the things I am here today.
Self-care – gym, stretching, food, SHOWER (lol), and time to BE me.
Team tasks.
Client responses.
Content creation for my courses.
Always have something for my humans to opt into. Something to choose to uplevel to. A way to calibrate to my energy.

No matter what was happening in a day, these get done.
And then I went on this sprint of learning to do it all by 11am. I didn’t do it forever but I learned that I CAN. I can run my entire global business before 11am.


It’s not that we don’t know what to do, it’s not that there’s not enough time.

It’s simply that we are overwhelmed, have crappy boundaries, and don’t believe we are worthy to take the time and use the money resource as we desire to thrive.

If we’ve done that work then it’s because we are surrounded by others who are doing the regular humdrum of life. If you were here staying at my house you’d be calibrating to how much I get done before noon and it would feel silly to analyze something for 3 hours rather than just doing your best and getting it done.

This is what mentorship does for me. I feel completely bada** around the regular everyday life energy and I feel completely silly around focused, driven humans on a mission and getting it done.

It’s all relative.
And it’s all possible.

If it’s possible for one person, it’s possible for all.
If it’s possible ever, it’s possible now.

Knowing your best is always enough.
Do the damn thing and let it be enough.

My Conversation with Thich Nhat Hanh

What?! You mean… compassion for others includes the woman lying and hurting the man I love? It includes compassion for her?
That’s easy for you to say.
You don’t have a wife or kids that you love like I love them.
What’s that you say?
That’s how you love EVERYTHING? All humans? All animals and sentient beings?

Not My Place To Get Someone To See the “Truth”…

For as long as I can remember I have always felt responsible for helping others see the things that they cannot see… the boyfriend on drugs, the way they are being taken advantage of, the abuse happening…
I have always suffered deeply to see anyone else suffering ESPECIALLY when I can see a way for their suffering to end!
This is what drove me so hard to break out of all of the abuse I was experiencing, go to school for 10 years while working and being a single mother with almost zero child support, start my business and make my first Mill in 2 years… THAT is a lot of drive, and it ALL came from MY WANTING TO END OTHERS SUFFERING.

What I Resist, I Empower

I see this belief lately that “standing for a world where race & religion do not matter is naive.”
(And abusive)
It’s popped up a number of times in my feed and then once now in my own life.
”It’s exclusive and doesn’t account for all the biases happening today. Anyone who believes this only believes it because they don’t get it. They aren’t the ones experiencing the racism, sexism or etc.”
I understand the basis of this.

Someone Told Me “You are not as enlightened as you think you are.”

And I wondered what that meant? What an unusual statement?
I realized that there’s a whole entire culture referred to as “woke” which couldn’t possibly believe more differently than my mentors who are considered “enlightened”. Which was she referring to?
And I chuckled.
I’m definitely not either…
Talk about a wild time to exist looking to find your way to a life full of joy and peace!

Meditation Breakthrough

New one hour meditations….
I’m beginning to see what’s underneath all the crap….
I’m wildly resisting the reality of what’s happening to people and animals in the world… It feels like it cracks my brain and will burry me to accept it.

I Was Being A Hypocrite

Sometimes we expect people to handle things even better than we are capable of handling them simply because society would agree that’s how it should be handled.
But that’s still hypocrisy…
Just because we can make the best argument for that being how it should have been handled… (womennnnnn lol)
