It's time to start embracing short term ‘losses’ in the pursuit of your desires!
In order to truly grow and level up in both your life and business…you NEED to get comfortable investing in yourself.
The world has conditioned us to believe that rooting for ourselves and prioritizing our own needs is selfish. This is so incredibly wrong and actually more detrimental to you and the relationships around you over the long run.
Over the last few years, I have really prioritized myself and focused on levelling up my life and business. I can honestly say that I do not regret one single form of self love and self investment that I have taken for myself over these last few years, and that I will continue to do these things and more in the future.
MONEY IS NOT A DIRTY WORD
Money is a touchy subject for a lot of people, including myself.
Recently, I have started to adopt more of an abundance mindset, instead of a money scarcity mindset in my business.
Instead of chasing clients and desperately chasing every last penny, I am coming from a place of confidence in knowing my unique value and knowing that money will always find its way back to me.
A huge part of being able to level up, is accepting that in order to grow you need to feel comfortable with investing in yourself.
Investing in yourself and your business may feel pretty uncomfortable in the short term, but will reap success and benefits in the future.
In my business journey, I have had to learn to stop being afraid of investing my money and time into things that will move me forward.
This is why embracing these short term ‘losses’ in pursuit of your desires is so key.
Things that feel uncomfortable in the short term, such as investing your money, time, or energy, will get you so much closer to your goals than waiting around and wishing you were in your desired state.
You are the only one in control of your life, so follow your passions and desires, and invest in things that bring you closer to your truest self.
EVALUATE YOUR PRIORITIES
When talking about investing in yourself and your business, I find it helpful to reflect and gain some perspective.
Reflecting on the things you spend your money on and how they help or don’t help you get closer to your desires may help you gain perspective on how much investing in your business is really ‘worth’.
The value of things you invest in really depends on your priorities and what you are really passionate about seeking. Designer bags may be your top priority! Or maybe they’re not. But that is for you to decide.
Evaluating what you invest your precious time, money, and energy on, will help you decide whether or not these things are actually contributing to or preventing your growth.
IT’S NOT A LOSS IF IT’S GETTING YOU CLOSER TO YOUR GOALS
Being able to appreciate these short term ‘losses’ and see them more as opportunities for growth will get you so much closer to your goals than any quick fix will.
I recently took over a month off of taking clients so I could focus on my business strategy, brand identity, and back end business strategies, in order to make my business more successful in the future.
This short term loss of not taking clients definitely was uncomfortable (for me and my bank account)…BUT I am able to recognize the future success that streamlining my process, focusing on my why, and building a stellar brand, will bring me in my business.
By taking a step back and investing my time and money into things that will contribute to my growth, I have been able to focus on making my business a more clarifying and successful experience for my clients.
Not only that, but I have been able to create a brand identity for my own business that truly reflects me and my desired community, and oozes my own unique personality and perspective.
Some things I’ve invested in to help my personal & business growth:
1:1 coaching & mentorship
business foundation / my ‘why’
professional photography & graphics
self development & business books
professional applications & softwares
streamlining my process
professional business tools & systems
I cannot express how thankful I am that I decided to reflect and take the short term discomfort to be able to invest in myself and my business. These things have given me immeasurable clarity and direction in my business and life.
This is why I am so passionate about helping business owners take charge of their life and business through brand strategy and streamlining their processes. I am so excited that you are here and I am rooting for you!
