Today I had the opportunity to share my story in an online community on Facebook for other teachers, healers, and coaches.
I was asked to present weeks ago. Weeks ago, I still had a “traditional” coaching business. I was branded as “The Revolutionary Business Bitch”. Since then, though, every time a stranger would ask me what I did and I responded with, “I’m a business coach”, it never felt right.
I didn’t know how to put what I did into words.
Yes, I work with entrepreneurs.
Yes, I coach others.
But I’m not a “business coach” and never have been. My passion has always been the mindset, the internal work, rewriting our stories to create the life we actually want.
Within the past week, I finally allowed myself to be brave enough to ask myself the question I ask all my clients:
If you could do anything you wanted and knew you would be fully supported, what would you do?
Write. I would write. I would tell my story. I would use my life as a teachable moment and coach from what I know better than anything else – how spiritual laws play out in the “real” world.
For years, I’ve wanted to write but I couldn’t see how to make it my full time job, so I held onto a traditional coaching business I didn’t really want.
Today in my presentation, I shared about the obligation we have to listening to that whisper we all experience. We always have two voices in our head – love and fear. Truth and illusion. The question is: which one will we choose to follow?
Fear allows us to create what we’ve always created before.
Love allows us to create something we’ve never experienced before.
I committed to writing. I committed to building what I actually wanted and with that, other platforms have opened up to me in which to share my writing.
While all of this was happening, I finished the manuscript for my first book, which is now in the hands of my test readers. I reread my own book and laughed, “My love of writing is all over this book! I’ve been meant to coach through my writing all this time, I just could never see it before!”
One of my test readers already began to give me feedback, “I feel like you’re coaching me through your story.”
“Yes! Good! That was my initial intention when I set out to write the book!”
For the first time in longer than I can remember, I feel calm without trying. I feel genuinely happy without anything needing to shift externally. I trust beyond a shadow of a doubt.
Everything that has ever fallen apart in my life has always been leading me to this exact moment of awareness.
I was never meant to create what I saw everyone else creating.
I was only ever meant to peel off all the other layers of the “shoulds” so I could finally see what I was actually meant to do.
The whisper always knows when we’re brave enough to trust it.
