The new moon in Taurus brings the energy focus for this month to money and pleasure. It’s also the perfect time to re-evaluate your soulful business.
I’ve been undergoing an overhaul in my business.
It’s become abundantly clear that I’ve tolerated so many things, because I’d lost sight of my core why.
Is it any wonder my soulful business lacked soul!
I started my business to make an impact on this planet, spread love and to offer a safe space of acceptance to women who are ready to stop settling.
But I somehow got caught up in the ‘strategy’ of it all, and lost the heart + soul of my core message.
I focused so much on the outcome, strategy and idea creation that I never actually got to implement and even worse I let go of the ability to work intuitively.
It became a numbers game, and whilst it still is in so many ways – the work MUST come through your soul.
When you’re so focused on the detail, you miss out on the insights you receive along the way to share your core message, and in turn lose sight of the true big picture.
It’s all about trust and action – the key word being action.
There’s going to be days where you don’t feel like doing anything. In fact this took me days to write as I stopped and started with procrastination and overthinking.
I took to my journal to get to the bottom of it, and what came up was that I was so caught up in the ‘how’ of it all – the technical stuff.
The thought process usually goes something like this:
“Ok so I’m going to write today, and it’s going to be so much fun. My writing is just going to flow, and I’m going to shut everything else out and just write.”
What happens is that I get so caught up in my head about it, that I forget to release all expectations and outcomes and just.write.damn.it.
So I walked to my local coffee shop, journal and laptop in hand (I chose the cafe that has no internet access, ie no chance for distractions).
I started by journaling and asking the question:
Why do I feel such resistance when I’m writing?
The answer I got was:
There are expectations rather than being in the moment. I’m building up the experience in my mind with “it’s going to be so much fun”, rather than just doing it. Basically I’m peaking in my mind before I even get to write.
I can’t tell you everyday just works in flow automatically, because some days it’s a conscious decision for everything I do in a day, other days just happen by themselves.
They ‘happen by themselves’ because of the work I put into creating daily rituals to keep my business soulful.
These are the base core rituals I can’t live without:
They all contribute to my work ritual of writing and showing up for my peeps.
I used to think that only celebrities or really successful people need to micro-focus on things that induce high performance.
I’ve realized how wrong I’ve been.
Whilst I’ve always wanted to perform at my best, and operate at optimum levels, it was at a very superficial level.
I’ve always loved looking good so everything was at surface level (even though I thought otherwise) but the older I get the more I appreciate how important it is to work from the core both spiritually and physically.
High performance life hacks rock.
- Superfoods (Turmeric + Coconut oil come to mind)
- Green Juice + Smoothies (drink with Glass Straws of course)
- Daily walk or jog
- BulletProof Coffee
- Paleo Philosophy (particularly no dairy, gluten or sugar)
- Healthy fats
Running a soulful business means consciously applying high performance principles in all areas of your life, in order to be able to show up, serve your tribe and be a Leader who leads truly by example.
Intuition + Strategy (+action) = Soulful Business
