Get Out of the Hustle & Give In to the Flow

The best thing I ever did for my business was to stop. fucking. hustling.

I went from forcing myself to work in my home office from 9am - 5pm (damn you, corporate mentality), to instead working from ANYWHERE and ANY TIME I damn well pleased.

When I first started my coaching business, I thought that I actually WANTED to work those typical hours. 

I even wrote about it in a past blog.

But what I realized was that I just still had the corporate mentality ingrained in my head.

"If you're not working nine to five, then you're not working hard enough." - Society 

What a load of bullshit.

I found back then that if I wasn't physically in my home office for most of the day, then I actually felt GUILTY that I wasn't working hard enough.

So I plugged away on the "busy work"; creating programs that weren't in alignment (and I never even used), building colour-coded spreadsheets of what a full schedule would look like one day (spoiler alert: it can look however you want, without a pretty little spreadsheet), and essentially just wasting time with shit I didn't actually need to be doing.

As long as I was in my office all day, I felt like I was accomplishing something.

And I also felt like I had to respond to every social media post and private message immediately.

I laugh at that now.

But that's the trap of having worked in corporate for so long.

You think the hustle is "normal".

You think that defines you as a business owner.

But then I started working with coaches who thought outside the box.

I was introduced to a new way to running my business.

Intuitive flow.

And holy shit, let me tell you, THAT'S when everything changed in my business.

Instead of chaining myself to my desk (which is one of the exact reasons I had left corporate to begin with)...

I started going out and DOING things.

Getting a massage in the middle of the day.

Paddle boarding and hanging out on the beach with a friend.

Going for walks in nature.

And wouldn't you know - all of a sudden ideas started to flow!

Content creation became easy.

Increasing my prices became easy.

Signing $5K clients became easy.

All because I was giving in to my intuitive flow.

And telling the hustle to take a hike.

As soon as I started trusting in the Universe - and watching it so clearly provide - building my business became so. friggin'. easy.

Almost too easy.

Not gonna lie - there were times I'd find myself questioning whether this was too good to be true.

But here I am, consistently growing my empire.

Using intuitive flow.

It actually feels like I've discovered the secret of the Universe.

But it's meant for EVERYONE to know about it!

So I do my part in spreading the word.

I tell everyone I can.

Because the hustle can really suck.

It's draining.

It's stressful.

And it doesn't have to be that way!

I challenge you to run your business through intuitive flow even just for a single month.

You'll be amazed at what happens for you.

When you get out of the hustle, and give in to the flow.

It's Just Easier than Actually Trying

Why does it take so long for us to trust ourselves?

We have no problem trusting other people.

Using their opinions as our own.

Listening to what they have to say, and putting more weight on it than our own thoughts.

Believing in the doubts.

Piling them on top of our own - amplifying the likelihood of us failing. 

Why do we let other people influence our thoughts?

Our feelings?

Our actions?

Our outcome?

Our future?

Pretty simply, because it's just easier than actually trying.

It's easier to play small, than to put ourselves out there.

It's easier to stay quiet, than to rise up and voice our true thoughts.

It's easier to sit inside our comfort zone, than to step outside the box - and risk being seen.

But really... is it easier?

All the frustration of knowing we're meant for more.

All the missed opportunities from not speaking up.

All the happiness passing us by because we've chosen to settle for less than we deserve.

Is it actually easier?

Because I know when I was going through all that shit...

I felt lost.

I felt confused.

I felt overwhelmed.

At least, that's what I let myself believe at the time.

Until I realized that everything I needed to know was already inside me.

**Insert eye roll here**

No really, it actually is.

I used to roll my eyes at that statement too.

But then I decided to test this theory out.

I figured, what's the worst that could happen, if I started to actually listen to myself?

To tune in to what I wanted for me.

Not for anyone else.

I asked myself, what would my ideal day look like?

What would I see, hear, smell, taste, touch?

I painted a picture of that perfect day.

And it felt like I was actually standing right there, in the middle of it.

It was so vivid.

It was so obvious.

But we often don't let ourselves dream like that.

Usually, we put a limit on our thoughts.

We break them down by our perceived version of reality.

But there's no reason why you can't actually live the life you're dreaming of for yourself.

It all comes down to how bad you want it.

What are you willing to do to make it happen for yourself?

How many times are you willing to get up after you fall?

What kind of risks are you willing to take, to reap your reward?

How many excuses are you willing to overcome?

How resourceful are you willing to get?

The truth is...

Everything you need to know really is inside you.

Right now.

And you already have the means to create that life you're dreaming of.

You just have to take one bold action at a time.

And actually try.

Not that half-assed I-gave-up-the first-time-it-didn't-work try.

The real try.

The try where you know you're going to face challenges.

And you know you'll overcome them.

The try where it's a non-negotiable to make it fucking happen.

And start building the life you deserve.

Because when it comes down to it...

It's not just easier than actually trying.

Trying actually just gets easier.

The Power of Suggestion

Today I stood in front of the mirror.

Completely naked.

I looked at myself.

I slightly twisted my body to pose in positions that smoothed out those places that had a little extra "padding".

And I was okay with my body.

In fact, I actually smiled.

I found this quite interesting.

Because yesterday morning, I had looked at my body and been disappointed about those areas that weren't shaped exactly how I wanted them to be.

Yesterday, I was fearful about going to a friend's cottage next weekend, because I thought about being in a bathing suit and looking "gross".

Yesterday, I had slightly twisted my body into positions that smoothed out those places that had a little extra padding too.

But instead of smiling, like I did this morning...

Yesterday, I had actually said "ugh" out loud.

Yesterday, I had turned away from the mirror in shame.

So, what the hell happened in just 24 hours that caused such a difference - to create two opposite reactions?

The power of suggestion.

Yesterday afternoon, I had a session with my coach, Tina Mai, and to my surprise, part of my homework was to look in the mirror and appreciate my body, and all it does for me.

And to pose in positions of how I want my future self to look.

Not gonna lie, it kinda blew my mind that I had randomly done mirror work yesterday morning, because it was before Tina had even assigned the task to me.

And while yes, yesterday I had chosen to focus on the negative parts of my body, none the less, I had studied it in the mirror - which is something I rarely do.

So this morning, I took her suggestion to heart.

I looked in the mirror and instead of seeing my "faults"...

Today, I saw a stomach that somehow looked flatter.

Today, I saw that my "back fat" wasn't actually as bad as I had thought it was yesterday.

Today, I saw poised shoulders.

Today, I saw my beautiful tattoos.

Today, I saw hips that curved and added shape to my body.

Today, I saw two strong legs that support me every day.

(Sidenote: I had recently listened to a podcast where a woman talked about losing both her legs to a random infection, so I appreciated my legs even more this morning.)

And the trick of this assignment is that...

It's a bit of a mind fuck.

Because after I took in all the amazingness of my body - and felt appreciation for it carrying me through life, day in and day out...

I spent almost zero time slightly twisting my body into what I want it to look like in the future.

I smiled at my reflection in the mirror almost immediately after doing a few quick poses.

All I felt was love.

Not disappointment.

Not fear.

Not being gross.

Not saying "ugh".

Not feeling shame.

I was content with my body.

I was okay with the shell my soul lives in.

And while I still have goals to make myself healthier...

They're now coming from a place of love.

They're coming from a place of gratitude for what I already have.

And a desire to consistently enhance the badassery of me.

Mind. Body. Soul.

All this, from a simple homework assignment from my coach.

So I offer you the opportunity to look in the mirror.

And appreciate what you see.

Look for the beauty.

And feel love.

The power of suggestion...

What an amazing mindset shift.

Stop Overthinking & Making Shit Complicated

As humans, for some reason we feel the need to create some kind of drama and chaos in our lives.

Even for the most ridiculous situations. 

We make them more complicated than they need to be.

Perfect example of this, with a totally silly situation; here's a conversation my husband and I had today...

Me: **Sitting on the couch with my head back and eyes closed because I've had a headache for a couple hours**

Jeff: "You tired?"

Me: "Yeah, I have a headache. I think it's because of my ponytail - I haven't worn one in a while."

Jeff: **Pauses, looks at me like I have three heads, then says** "Then take out your ponytail."

Me: "Oh... yeah... I guess that would help, eh?"

Jeff: **Teasing me** "Oh, this thing I have complete control over is causing me unnecessary pain - I don't know what to do about it."

Like, WHAT?! Why did it take my husband suggesting for me to take my ponytail out for me to actually do it?!

I had complete control over the situation the whole time and could have saved myself two hours of headache by just letting my hair down - yet I made it more complicated than it had to be.

How often do we do silly shit like that, making our lives more difficult because we're not paying attention to - or acting on - obvious solutions?

And when it comes to the bigger situations in life, we can make things a whole lot less complicated by just releasing the amount of control we "need" to have for the outcome.

What comes to mind for this is when you're planning your wedding.

We make these big elaborate expectations and then worry that everything needs to happen exactly how we planned them, and it needs to be perfect.

We overthink about every worst case scenario that could happen, and try to have some plan in place in case it happens (which it very rarely does).

And at the end of the day, if you're married to the person you love, that's all that matters.

For real though.

That's literally all that matters on your wedding day.

You don't remember exactly how your centerpieces looked, or if you said all the right things in your speech or if the food was the perfect temperature.

You remember the moment you saw your partner for the first time that day, you remember the butterflies in your stomach as you read your vows to each other, you remember how it felt to be in their arms during your first dance.

All the little shit you thought was so important and gave you anxiety leading up to your wedding - it didn't even matter.

You're married.

That's all that matters.

And for the every day things in life and business, I have one piece of advice:

Let your intuition lead you.

Push past the bullshit fears and anxiety, and really listen to what your gut is telling you.

You always know what you want.

Sometimes we're just too afraid to say it out loud.

Sure, it helps to have a coach guide you if you need help uncovering what you want.

But they're just there to help you realize what you already know subconsciously.

So can we just cut the crap and actually say what we want?

Can we agree to not need control over things that won't matter in the long run?

Can we agree to just stop overthinking situations?

Can we agree to not complicate things?

There's already so much BS drama in the world - we don't need to add to it.

And wouldn't you love to live a life of simplicity?

I Didn't Know What I Was Missing

I made a discovery recently.

This discovery has to do with something I had no idea I was even missing out on.

Something I assumed I didn't really need in my life.

Something that never really came naturally to me.

The discovery was...

Friendships with other women are empowering as fuck!

You'd never know from this photo that we had just met that night, because we became instant besties! Sarah, Stephanie, Ana and Morgan - you ladies are amazing!

You'd never know from this photo that we had just met that night, because we became instant besties! Sarah, Stephanie, Ana and Morgan - you ladies are amazing!

You may be wondering why I said I didn't think I needed these friendships in my life, or how they never really came naturally to me.

The reason why I didn't think I needed friendships with other women is simply because I've never really had a strong core group of women in my life (outside of my amazing family) that were always supportive and encouraging, while still being honest and authentic.

So to me, it was just my norm to only have one or two awesome friends, without thinking much of it.

The reason why it never really came naturally to me is because I've always been "one of the boys". 

I've always gotten along better with the guys - but here's the kicker...

It's not because I like guy friends better than girl friends.

It's because I have zero tolerance for bullshit, bitchiness and mood swings.

And guys really don't embody those qualities often, so I found myself enjoying the ease of their friendships much more than than back-stabbing high school BS that girls do to each other.

That was, until I realized I had the ability to surround myself with women who are like-minded.

Women who aren't catty.

Women who don't talk shit.

Women who empower you.

Women who inspire you.

Women who are just good fucking people to be around.

I didn't know what I was missing.

But now I'm experiencing friendships with so many amazing women, who are doing incredible things, and wanting the best for themselves - while also wanting the best for me too!

I've met women who come from a place of understanding that we can ALL live our ideal lives, because we know there is enough abundance for everyone.

Having friendships with women who are kind-hearted, soul-centered people is such a game changer!

Their feminine energy is a completely positive experience for me now, and has replaced my previous thinking that friendships with women are mostly draining drama.

They've inspired me to get in touch with my own feminine energy, which has opened up a whole new realm of myself that I barely even knew existed, haha.

And - despite the fact that I'll always (proudly) be a little rough around the edges - I can finally say that I enjoy being one of the girls, instead of one of the guys.

Are You Dragging Dead Bodies?

Yeah, with all the zombie hype and negativity in the news, I thought a morbid approach for this title might grab your attention! But it's actually a serious question.

Many of us are dragging around dead bodies with us and just can't get rid of them. Even when we know they serve no real purpose and don't bring any value to our lives.

Photo by  Ian Espinosa

Photo by Ian Espinosa

Okay, yes, we're not talking about literal dead bodies (which I'm sure you assumed, because you're smart like that), but we ARE talking about the dead weight you drag around with you when you continue to try and save relationships that are way past their expiry date.

Essentially, we're talking about toxic relationships. And these come in many shapes and sizes.

There's the dramatic friend who's life is a mess and they always depend on you to help pick up the pieces of their disaster decisions that you somehow get wrapped up in it because you're trying to do everything for them until they get their shit together... which never seems to happen.

There's the parents who are always negative and consistently let you know that you can't do anything right; who don't understand the direction you're taking in your life because they never experienced anything outside of their limited bubble of beliefs, so they crap all over your ideas and tell you that you should have a "real job".

There's the partner who isn't supportive at all because they're afraid you'll outgrow them, so they try to control you and keep you small; they fight you on every kind of personal development aspect you're doing for yourself and tell you that you're being selfish.

I could go on, but I'm sure you get the idea.

Most of us can think of at least one toxic relationship that we tolerate for one reason or another.

But aren't you tired of carrying around that dead body?

It drains your energy.

It triggers thoughts of doubt.

It causes feelings of unworthiness.

And for what?

What value does that relationship truly bring to your life?

It doesn't matter if you've been friends with that train wreck of a friend since kindergarten.

It doesn't matter if they're your parents, so you feel like you owe them something.

It doesn't matter if you've been with your partner for years and are terrified if you leave them, you'll die alone.

Honestly. It doesn't matter.

You don't owe anyone anything.

No matter what your past history is.

No matter what your future fears are.

You don't owe them shit.

But you know who you DO owe something to?

Yourself.

So use this as your permission to take a long hard look at the toxic relationships in your life.

Do you really want to keep tolerating their bullshit because you feel guilty or scared of change?

Are you really willing to make yourself feel like crap because you don't want to hurt their feelings?

Letting toxic relationships persist in your life are like dragging dead bodies.

It serves no real purpose for you.

It brings no true value to you.

So maybe you start by lessening the time you spend with them.

Or maybe you decide to go cold turkey and just peace out.

But know this...

you create your experience of life.

So if something - or someone - doesn't serve a purpose or bring value to your life, you're allowed to walk away.

You'll get over the guilt.

You'll get over the fear.

And you'll be giving yourself the amazing gift of freedom.

To be who you are.

To do what you know you're meant to do.

Because you don't have to answer to anyone but yourself.

This is your life.

What kind of life experience will you create for yourself?

Spicy Corn & Chickpea Burgers

I love me a good veggie burger. But they are definitely not all created equal. I've had some that are sooo good, and then I've had others that have zero flavour and the consistency of sawdust. Typically, restaurants serve a pretty good veggie burger, while frozen grocery store patties just don't do it for me.

But since this spicy corn & chickpea burger recipe comes from well-known chef, Jamie Oliver, I think it's safe to say it'll be delicious. Not to mention that he serves this burger up with a side of sweet potato wedges - yum!

Spicy Corn & Chickpea Burgers.jpg

Spicy Corn & Chickpea Burgers
(with a side of Sweet Potato Wedges)

Ingredients

  • 800 g sweet potatoes
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • olive oil
  • 1 x 400 g tin of chickpeas
  • 1 x 340 g tin of sweetcorn
  • ½ a bunch of fresh coriander
  • ½ teaspoon ground coriander
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3 heaped tablespoons plain flour , plus extra for dusting
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 small round lettuce
  • 2 large ripe tomatoes
  • tomato ketchup
  • 4 wholemeal burger buns
  • extra virgin olive oil

Directions

  1. Packed with spices, herbs and a hit of lemon zest, these vegan burgers ensure you get all the joy of tucking into a burger – all those beautiful contrasting textures. Making these veg-packed beauties gives us two of our 5-a-day, and because they’re only full of the good stuff, they’re super-healthy, but seriously satisfying, too. This recipe makes four burgers, so get your patties made at step 6 and freeze any remaining depending on how many mouths you’re feeding. If you’ve got any salady bits and bobs hanging around, serve them up alongside your burger.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200ºC/400ºF.
  3. Scrub the sweet potatoes clean, then halve and cut into wedges. Sprinkle over a pinch of sea salt and black pepper and 1½ teaspoons of paprika (save the rest for the burgers). Drizzle with ½ tablespoon of olive oil, toss to coat and spread in one layer onto two baking trays.
  4. Bake in the hot oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until golden and cooked through.
  5. While your wedges are cooking, drain the chickpeas and sweetcorn and place in a food processor. Pick the coriander leaves, then add half to the processor along with all of the stalks. If you don’t have a food processor, place in a bowl and mash with a potato masher or fork.
  6. Add the spices, flour and a pinch of sea salt, grate in the lemon zest, then pulse until combined, but not smooth – you want to retain a bit of texture. If you don’t have a food processor, combine with a fork, then scrunch with clean hands.
  7. On a flour-dusted surface, divide and shape the mixture into four equally sized patties (roughly 2cm thick). Pop onto a tray and place in the fridge for around 30 minutes to firm up.
  8. Heat a splash of olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Once hot, add the patties and cook for around 10 minutes, or until golden and cooked through, turning halfway.
  9. Click off 4 nice lettuce leaves, then finely slice the tomatoes horizontally.
  10. Halve the burger buns, then squeeze a large dollop of ketchup onto the base of each one (toast them if you like), then top with the burgers.
  11. Layer over a couple of slices of tomato, a lettuce leaf, a few coriander leaves and finally the burger tops.
  12. Chop the remaining lettuce with any leftover tomato, drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil, add a squeeze of lemon juice, season, toss to coat and serve up with the burgers and sweet potato wedges.

Why You Feel Stuck in Your Job

Your mind tends to wander to the worst case scenario. It’s human nature. Your brain is literally wired to keep you safe, so anything new sends up a red flag – even if there’s no physical danger; your brain yells, “STOP! We’ve never done this before – we should be scared!”

This is especially true when you’re considering a change in your career.

So instead of making a change, you're choosing to live in fear.

How’s that working for you so far?

You’re tired of the same old routine; get up, go to work, come home, make dinner, go to bed, then do it all again the next day, and the next day, and the next day - until the weekend hits. But then before you know it, it’s Sunday night and you feel that sickening dread creep into the pit of your stomach.

You feel stuck.

You desperately want to leave your job, but your fear-based brain has you thinking:

  • What if people judge you and think you’re irresponsible?
  • What if you lose your steady paycheque and can’t pay the bills?
  • What if you can't actually make it work and you fail?

Yet still, the burning desire to do something more is constantly on your mind. 

You want to make a difference.

You want to be your own boss.

You want freedom and flexibility.

Here’s the good news: You can create a life of freedom for yourself! 

The truth is, you can stop being so fearful because:

  • Judgement from others has nothing to do with you (and everything to do with them).
  • Making a steady paycheque as an entrepreneur is completely possible for you because you’re willing to put in the effort.
  • You can totally make this work because failure is not an option for you – you'll do whatever it takes to make this happen for yourself!
     

You know you've got this – and you’re not going to let your primitive brain hold you back any longer!

You’re ready to follow your heart - to follow your intuition - and take massive, purposeful action to get yourself where you want to be.

You only feel stuck in your job because you're scared of the worst case scenario happening.

You're living in fear.

So, I'll ask you this...

How would it feel to ditch the fear, begin the adventure of becoming an entrepreneur – and start living a life of freedom?

The 3 Ways Success of Others Means Success for You

I'm not gonna lie. This morning I really wanted to sleep in.

I wanted to pull the covers over my head, stay nice and warm and cozy in bed, and just fall back into dream land.

But then a vision of my friend and colleague, Christina Popovic, came into my head.

She's just been nominated for an award that has a cash prize of $10,000.

And she was nominated for this award as recognition for all her hard work and effort as a Life, Health and Mindset Coach - how badass it that?!

So as I thought of her this morning, it inspired me to get my ass out of bed and make full use of today - to kick ass in my business and help change lives for the better - including my own!

Which brings us to the first way the success of others can mean success for you...

Photo by:  StockSnap

1. Motivation

All too often we see someone else experiencing success and our immediate emotion is jealousy.

But what if we simply chose to be motivated instead?

What if instead of thinking a negative thought of "it should be ME being successful", we used it as an opportunity to get curious about how they reached their success?

Can you ask them what's working for them directly?

Can you research their background story and read about their success story?

Can you check out their social media accounts and take note of how they market themselves?

Getting motivated opens up so many doors for your own success.
 

2. Hire them as your mentor

When you see someone else doing what you want to do, it only makes sense to see if you're able to work with them.

They're clearly doing something right, if they're experiencing success.

This is certainly the case when I chose to hire Mandy Perry as my mentor.

Mandy has taken herself and her family from being on food stamps just two years ago, to now owning a successful six-figure business. How friggin' inspiring is THAT?!

So, because I know the importance of having a coach, I started following her on social media, and paying more attention to what she was saying.

It became a factor of "know, like, and trust" - you want your audience to know who you are and what you're about, you want them to like you, and you want them to trust you.

Mandy is all these things to me - so I hired her as my mentor!
 

3. Celebrating Others Creates High Vibe Attraction

When you're in the space of truly celebrating the success of others, it helps bring those positive high vibes back around your way.

Celebration mode can look like anything from a silly impromptu dance party to just writing a note to that person to let them know how proud you are of them.

Taking time to truly reflect on the feeling of gratitude to know someone who is experiencing success, can ultimately contribute to bringing that success around to you too!

So the next time you feel jealousy creeping up when you hear about someone earning success, stop and think about these three ways their success could make a positive impact on your life as well.

Because the world could use more celebrations.

So celebrate your sisters.

And soon enough, we'll be celebrating YOU!
