By focusing more on who you’re being and less on what you’re doing this year
Anyone else feeling hyped for the new year?! 🙋♀️ Or maybe you’re not and that’s okay too – permission to be wherever you’re at right now, and trust that you’re exactly on time.
Recently over in my community, we chatted about who you need to be in order to crush those 2021 income goals.
Notice how I said who you need to BE…and not what you need to DO?! Because what I’ve learned after 7 years of owning businesses is that who you’re being is always more impactful than what you’re doing.
Now don’t get me wrong – this isn’t about not being enough right now, just as we are. It’s about choosing to step more fully into our greatness and our light. And bringing that highest and best version of ourselves forward more often.
Do you still need to show up and do the dang work? Hells yes. But it’s HOW you’re showing up and what you’re telling yourself every day that really matters when it comes to making the kind of money you desire to make.
In fact, every single one of my clients that went on to EXCEED their 2020 income goal worked their mindset waaaaaay more than they worked their strategy this year. And that’s some new year’s truth with a capital T.
In fact…real talk time ➡️ I’ve got some MAJOR stretching to do this year in order to make the kind of income + impact I’ve decided on for 2021. Meaning – the Lisa in December of this year will honestly be different than the Lisa of right now, today.
And I’m 100% available for that. Am I scared? Yep, but available for it.
So let’s get this first conversation of the near year rolling, shall we?! Read on below to learn my 6 steps to crushing your 2021 goals, by focusing more on who you’re being and less on what you’re doing this year…
BE TO RECEIVE – STEP 1
Think about that income goal you set for yourself this year. Hold it in your mind. Feel it in your heart. And then ask yourself – who do I need to be to receive that income level?
But this is not about not being enough now – this is about bringing more of your enoughness forward. It’s about embodying that version of yourself that makes the kind of money you want to make this year. It’s about thinking like, feeling like, and being like that version of you NOW who makes your desired income…even before you’re making that income.
Because when we think/feel/be like that version of ourselves, we can’t help but evolve to be that version of ourselves faster. And on an energetic level, we begin to match the energy of our desired income level, therefore attracting it much sooner!
And remember – that version of yourself is ALREADY there…you just need to feel into her and bring her forward more. That’s all this is really about!
THINK/FEEL/BE – STEP 2
Today, I’m nudging you to get specific…super specific about who you need to BE to crush your 2021 income goals.
I want you to turn today’s conversation into your own journal or brainstorm exercise, so take out your journal or a piece of paper and get specific about…
— When you’re making your desired level of income, what are you thinking everyday?
— When you’re making your desired level of income, what are you feeling everyday?
— When you’re making your desired level of income, who are you being everyday?
— What can you think/feel/do right now TODAY to be that fuller version of yourself right NOW?
Believe me…this is a powerful exercise to get you started with being the person who makes the money you want to make TODAY!
LET THE BELIEF DRIVE THE ACTION – STEP 3
All this post I’ve been talking about who you need to BE to crush your 2021 income goals. I’ve also shared that every single one of my clients that went on to EXCEED their 2020 income goal worked their mindset waaaaaay more than they worked their strategy this year.
But all that’s not to say that strategy or what you’re doing doesn’t matter to making more money. Because it does matter. It just doesn’t matter as much as what you’re telling yourself and how you’re feeling.
Think about it like this, if you learned this new shiny sales strategy and started executing on it daily, but didn’t really believe in it and were saying all kinds of negative things to yourself while executing on said strategy – the strategy just wouldn’t work…or it wouldn’t work nearly as well (or as fast).
So by all means take the action. Just make sure you’re taking action from a place of belief and while thinking and feeling things that help you get where you’re going (and don’t just keep you more stuck).
And prioritize thinking and feeling good more than anything else. Because no one you look up to in your industry got where they are by saying shitty things to themselves all day or by routinely feeling bad. #truth
SHOW UP BEYOND YOURSELF – STEP 4
“Who do I need to BE or what do I need to GIVE MYSELF in 2021 to bring my big goals to life?”
This might mean you need to learn a new skill…believe in yourself on a deeper level…or say more no’s to things that don’t serve you.
Point is to ask yourself what that future version of you is thinking or choosing as she lives out her dream goals.
Because THAT’S what you need to think…choose…be…invest in…NOW.
For example, if you’ve set an income goal this year that’s BEYOND what you’ve ever made before, then YOU need to show up in ways that’s BEYOND what you’ve ever done before.
You also need to figure out what’s gonna help you bridge that gap between who you are now and who you need to be, so you can start living into that person who has what you want TODAY.
If you need more strategy, invest in more strategy. If it’s greater confidence, invest in things that’ll help you grow your confidence. If greater physical health’s the ticket, invest in a plan to get healthier. [And if you’re not sure, that’s okay too! Start there.]
Point is, don’t just do the comfortable thing that you’ve always done. We create new results by BEING a new version of ourselves. Start doing the things NOW your future self will thank you for!
BE WILLING TO INVEST IN YOURSELF – STEP 5
Who do you need to be this year to reach your goals?
How do you need to show up?
Where do you need to invest?
I’m a big believer in being willing to spend money to support 2 things —
1) Your life goals
2) Your business endeavors
Why? Because I trust my ability to know what my life and business needs to get to that next level, AND I also trust myself to get a solid return on any investment I make.
And my dream clients feel the same way. Which is why they’re not afraid to invest in something they KNOW will grow their biz and them (even if that means investing before they’ve made a single sale or feel “ready”). Which is also why my clients make their investment back while we’re STILL working together.
AND ALSO why my clients continue to work with me on a repeat basis over the long-term. Because they believe in the value of investing in the one thing they know will keep paying off = themselves.
DECIDING AND CLAIMING – STEP 6
What’s one bold step you’re committed to taking this year that you KNOW will get you closer to seeing your 2021 goals come to life?
Is it an investment you’ll make? Are you working on a new project or strategy behind-the-scenes? Are you deep-diving on some major mindset work?
Or maybe you’re taking baby steps with something, but you KNOW it’s the thing that will get you to your income goals.
Whatever that step is, DECIDING THIS and CLAIMING IT for yourself are 2 powerful ways to create results before you ever take any action! #whoyourebeing
