We’re creating and generating our new business, but the “old” thing we’re doing to make money is still going. Maybe it’s a full time job, or maybe it’s another business. And we start not liking and resenting what we’re currently doing, because we have this other thing on the horizon that will be oh-so-inspiring and way more fun. So we make what we’re doing now wrong and a struggle.
I worked with a woman who was cutting hair for a living. It was a get ‘em in, get ‘em out kind of business, and she was only making a few hundred dollars per week. She complained to me that she was working a lot and hating every minute of it. All she wanted to do was to leave and work on the new business she was creating.
Because she would not be grateful for the money and opportunities her current job was providing her, her income was going down each week. The people at her work were no fun to be around, and she wasn’t selling any extra products.
I pointed out to her that trying to create a new business inside the energy of “my life sucks” won’t work either. I coached her not only to be grateful for the income she had, but to start looking for the opportunities that were present right now, in her current job. She took it on, and also took on my “$1,000 in 1 Week Challenge.” It took her two weeks, but she went from $400/week to $1000/week at her haircutting job. Just by changing her energy and being willing to generate all of her life, right now! That’s the energy to generate and create your new business from!
We are in control of generating our lives, right now, no matter what. If we do not choose to appreciate all our lives and be grateful for that we have, then we’ll miss the opportunities, and our lives will diminish.
