The gift of gratefulness and what it can teach you about attracting your first ever FEMININE $10K Launch
<<**Just sharing a few insights and tips to…get you breathing again at a normal pace, enjoying those warm showers and FINALLY walking the streets of Paris…(no strings attached! ;)**>>
I am no stranger to gratefulness. In fact, there have been 3 instances in my life where it’s been REALLY strong and made a huge difference in my experience.
The first one was when I finally came to the States from Cuba. No, I wasn’t grateful just then! Coming to the U.S. was the dream of my mother, not mine.
She wanted to give her 3 kids a different kind of life with opportunities, education…you know, the American dream.
I remember her explaining to me why we had to leave Cuba. I was VERY resistant…in fact, of the 4 of us, I took it the hardest. Cuba wasn’t just my home, I BELONGED there…
…or so I felt.
My mom’s general feeling about it all was “Do you like living like this?”
The “like this” she was referring to was taking showers from a bucket with a cup (we didn’t have running water) and eating hard bread from the panaderia because that was all there was to eat.
For a 12yo who thought she knew everything and who had ONLY known that kind of life, the answer was YES! I did! I was happy there, even living like THAT.
So…in this instance, gratefulness came much later. After the crying and the missing of my home to tear my heart to pieces, and the silence that I had never known settled in my heart…
…under a running warm delicious shower, for the simple easy pleasure of it…and then many years later when I visited Cuba again and in my family’s home I had to once again shower with a bucket. I was VERY grateful! 🙂
The second one was when I got to Paris for the first time…by myself, in a plane, with no friends there at all… and never having traveled that far away from home before.
This one hit me like TON of bricks all at once. I got off the plane to be immediately bombarded with French EVERYWHERE…and me feeling like it was the most natural thing in the world.
On the taxi ride to my hotel, the cabbie was chatting with me in French, and me telling him about my home and what I was doing in France…I think he was the first native that I ever spoke French with. It was one of the best feelings of my life.
I had tears of joy, vibrating at 1 billion miles/hr and then some, when I took a walk down the Seine or Canal St. Martin. I was grateful…to fulfill my lifelong dream.
So you’re waiting for it no?
What the h*** does this have to do with the Feminine Launch?
You see…for most kinds of life situations being grateful after and while it’s happening may work to help your experience…but NOT for entrepreneurship it doesn’t!
Here’s the dictionary.com definition: a person who organizes and manages any enterprise, especially a business, usually with considerable initiative and RISK.
The risk is not just financial…these days, the risk is on every level!
Risk of failure, risk of ridicule, risk of emotional mayhem, risk of not finding your tribe, and on and on…
To overcome all of these risks and still make it to the other side, with the clients, the success and the business you desire requires FAITH!
The kind of faith that you have to give everything to…and nothing shows more faith than gratefulness, when you do it BEFORE the fact.
It’s very easy to be grateful when you’ve had your $10K month, when you have your $5K client, and all that jazz…
…but can you be grateful when you didn’t? Can you be grateful after 5 people in a row told you NO? Can you be grateful to turn the risk around?
If you can’t, then you’re missing the lesson, the point, the big huge OPPORTUNITY resting on that moment.
To have the $10K Launch, you have to become the woman that HAS it. If you are not, then there are lessons you need to learn before it happens.
Gratefulness eliminates the weight on your chest that doesn’t let you breathe, the panic, the worry and fear…the DOUBT!
When you eliminate these things and go back to full faith, you can see the answers, you can open up to opportunities, you can SEE what you didn’t before and make the shift…easily!
So this was the 3rd place for me. I had to learn to be grateful BEFORE as well, and watch my business blossom as I became more of the woman who had that business.
So what can YOU do to have that feminine successful launch? Here’s a few things…
1. We’re talking business here… so check in your business: What is your next goal? What is that thing that you truly desire right now?
2. What is/has been challenging about this goal? Have you hit the goal yet? If you haven’t, what are the emotions, thoughts and feelings that are prevailing right now?
3. Identify where you can bring in gratefulness and pump up your faith. REFRAME all those emotions from step 2 into gratefulness.
4. Watch the solutions show up! They have to, when you are in the right energy
5. BECOME. You have to. Your launch depends on it 🙂
Now go out there and get it done!
