My Secret To Success

So What Helped Me Create A Success Shift?

Some of you probably won’t believe me and that is fine, but this is the honest truth. When I was in the corporate world for 25 years, the thing that got me to the top fast was taking myself out of my comfort zone and trying things I had never done before.

  • I’d volunteer to help out in other departments when I was not busy
  • I would volunteer to do another person’s job when they were sick
  • I volunteered to organise all the events
  • I asked my boss to give me money to learn a new skill so they did not have to outsource it any more
  • Bottom line is, I just kept putting my hand up until I got to the top!

That is easy you may say, you had a guaranteed income, you had a job!

I totally understand, and you are right I did have a job. But when I found myself freaking out after I left my job, realising that I had a baby to support and  that failure was not an option, I soon discovered  I needed to figure out fast how I could use that same mindset to move forward in my own business and support my family.

What a wake-up call that  was… you see, the more scared I got, the less I implemented and the more my business suffered.

  • I hated doing videos
  • I hated public speaking
  • I hated having my photo taken
  • I did not like networking events
  • I had absolutely no internet marketing skills
  • And to be honest, for an outgoing person, I really was quite the introvert

But do you know what I hated more?

Failing!

Being an ‘A’ grade student all my life, and succeeding in the corporate world, definitely set me up with the mindset that failing was not an option. But then one day my mentor told me I was looking at it the wrong way.

What if I actually had a go, made some mistakes, but learned something new that would help me grow my business faster, would that be failing?

When I thought about it, I realised that by not having a go, I was failing more and that through some of my stuff ups, I’d actually became quite skilled along the way.

In fact, when I actually sat back and looked at how far I’d come, from a complete beginner in business, I was pleasantly surprised.

You see I was focusing on all the things I could not do and all the things I had not accomplished instead of all the things I had achieved in a very short period of time. That was a huge learning curve for me.

Key Lesson To Me….

Focus on the growth, not the ‘yet to learn’ or the ‘hiccups’ along the way.

But I still lacked self-confidence in this online world.

I was so much out of my comfort zone that it kept me in spin trying to master it all. Anyone here know that feeling?

So I had to dig deep to figure out a way to overcome this fear of….

  • making a mistake
  • people laughing at me
  • not fitting in with the online ‘boys club’
  • comparing myself to all the other successful women so far ahead of me
  • not knowing what I was doing and worst of all;
  • someone actually figuring out that I had no idea what I was doing [shock horror]

Yes for the first 3 years as an entrepreneur I had all these fears going around in my head too.

But then I figured out a way to overcome them and it worked!

To Your Success

Yep I am going to share with you my #1 Success Secret… Drum Roll!!!!

I dared myself to do it! …..Ta Dah!

You see there is nothing, I mean nothing that irks me more, or gets me more riled than someone telling me I CAN’T do something.

Ask my husband he will tell you. If ever he wants me to do something he tells me he does not think I can do it, knowing that it is like waiving a red flag to a bull with VERY SHARP HORNS!

But there is a few exceptions to the rules eg. when it comes to cooking, or the dishes, then I run in the other direction happily 🙂

My first PROFITABLE Dare!

I remember when I bought my first home in my early thirties and the guy I was dating at the time did not want to buy a house even though I really wanted to.

I remember his words clear as day, You will need to find a minimum of $13k for a deposit, you will never save that amount”.

I said to him, “If I save $13k will you do it?”

He said, “Yep, not going to happen” and went back to having a beer smirking to himself that a woman could save any money at all.

Well it took me exactly 12 weeks to save $13k and I went on to put an offer on our first home. But what was even smarter, I dumped him 12 mths later, bought him out of the house and doubled my money within 3 years! Look whose laughing now!

Gosh I wish I’d remembered this sooner…

Hindsight is a wonderful thing, which is why I am sharing this with you now so you don’t have to wait to figure it out yourself.

These days when I am scared to do something, I set myself a challenge and a deadline to achieve it. Why? 

Because I hate to not meet a deadline [Corporate deadlines have become my best learned skill, thank you  Corporate Job!].

So my question to you is this…

If I set you a challenge are you game to see if you can do it?

Are you ready to create the exact same Success Shift in your business, your life and your mindset?

If the answer is yes, and you want to succeed faster and easier than you’ve ever thought possible, then make sure to watch the Dare Challenge on Monday.

Just so you know, yes I still use this in my business today in fact….I am going through a personal Dare at the moment. It is totally freaking me out, but

  • the vision is clear
  • the deadline is set and;
  • the impact to others is huge and that is my driving force.

Stop Being A She Zombie

What is wrong with everyone?

This has been bugging me for a while and I decided I could no longer ignore this epidemic that has been growing before my eyes over the last 12 months. At first I thought it must be a faze women entrepreneurs were going through, but as the months went by I just saw it getting worse and worse.

Women who were once alive and thriving, are now just existing online, living ground hog day on social media, in their business and day to day lives.

Even I went through it for a short time too, so I know what it feels like.

I call it SheZombies.

So what are SheZombies and do you have the symptoms?

  • Lost your spark, drive and mojo
  • Lost your  passion for your business
  • Going through the motions day in and day out
  • Overwhelmed and feeling like you are on a treadmill to no where
  • Lost your vision, your dream and your mission
  • Everything around you just seems like noise, and you have lost interest
  • Just going through the motions and have stopped growing personally, professionally and spiritually

So if you are feeling a bit lost and disheartened in your business don’t worry you are not alone

There are many women who seem to have lost their spark because their passion for what they are doing is just not there and their sense of fun, community, giving and vision has slowly disintegrated into a world of SheZombies on the world wide web.

It’s Not Your Fault

I have noticed a great divide happening in the mentoring community online in the last 18 mths whereby coaching has become so far beyond reach for the average woman that they have been left floundering to figure it out for themselves in a sea of blog posts, webinars, social media snippets and events with little to no results in their business.

The help that was once there and accessible to the majority has now turned into a minority group of  7 figure earners only interested in the high 6 figure affluent clientelle.

So where does that leave the 5  to low 6 figure women to go to?

That is when I came up with an idea and I wanted to share it with you to see what you think.

I believe it is time for a shake-up in the industry.  And if you agree I’m prepared to do something about it.

I don’t know about you but I love it when …

  • I have a challenge that is so far out of my comfort zone I get goosebumps thinking about it;
  • I have a purpose and a mission that has me waking up in the middle of the night with amazing ideas to implement the next day;
  • I get to hang out with like-minded women who want to help each other achieve big audacious results;
  • I have deadlines that create a positive shift in my life, my business, my health and my personal wealth;
  • I am contributing to something bigger than just me;
  • I’m making a personal impact on the world and thriving in all areas of my life at the same time;
  • I can share my expertise and help other women reach their dreams too;
  • But most importantly….thatI can wake up each and every day and say ‘MY LIFE IS AWESOME’ and know that everyone in this women’s community is feeling exactly the same way.

I want to invite you to join me in creating a new ‘Awesome Movement for women wanting bigger things in their lives!

I believe the women entrepreneur community is a bit lost, dis-empowered and unsupported and I for one want to change that feeling.

I want to build this momentum together with you because I truly believe collectively we can create a huge positive wave that will impact the lives of many women around the world.

I have an idea that I think you are going to love. But before I dedicate time and energy to creating this amazing hub for women. A place for you to activate | accelerate | achieve huge positive ripples in all areas of your life, I have to know if you want to join me.

Just Be Warned…..This is NOT going to be some  ‘Warm & Fuzzy Self Help Group’

This is not going to be another ‘happy girls forum’ to hang out in and make each other feel warm and fuzzy on the inside. No way there are already plenty of those online already.

This is going to be HUGELY different.  This is going to be a place where you will be challenged to push through barriers that you never thought possible.

A place where I may even push your buttons, make you face some harsh realities while showing you how to create massive positive change in your life to get the results you have always dreamed of achieving.

Let’s Get Serious

I mean let’s get serious for a moment.  You only get one chance at this thing called life, so what are you waiting for?

Time is running out baby and no one can make it happen but YOU!

I want to create a community where you will create ‘A WIN’ in all areas of your life including:

health
wealth
mindset
All while reaching your big audacious goals!

We are talking BIG Success Growth Spurts

It will be a place where buttons will be pushed, but results will be massive.

A place where the support, attitude and intelligence will be superior to any other group or community you’ve ever been a part of  before, because failing forward is the only way to win the game! Somewhere where each and every day you will be creating ‘A Win’.

I Truly Believe In Your Awesomeness

Let’s build a movement for many women to grow, prosper and give together.
