What we focus on becomes our reality.
The thoughts we have.
Which lead to our words and our actions.
All create what is going on in our life right now.
We put out an energy, a vibration to The Universe
And the Law of Attraction delivers in response.
More often than not, I find my clients focusing on the lack of something.
Something that they feel they are missing.
Believing they should be in a different place in their life
Or feel a different way
And some how are lacking in something because they are not there yet.
How often do you find the first thought at the start of your day being one around lack?
As the alarm goes off, your first thought is of how tired you feel.
How little energy you have for the day ahead.
Already your first thought is one of lack
Something you are missing – sleep and energy.
And these feelings of lack seem to continue throughout the day.
As you stand in front of your wardrobe of clothes, no outfit inspires you, so you think to yourself, “I have nothing to wear”. Another thought of lack.
When you’re busy, the thoughts in your head are about how little time you have to get everything done.
And these thoughts of lack show up in so many areas of our life.
“I don’t have enough money” – lack of finances
“I can’t find any new clients” – lack of business
“I am not good enough” – lack of self worth
“I can’t do that” – lack of ability
“No one is buying my product/programme” – lack of sales
“I can’t sell” – lack of sales/lack of ability
And the online world with social media means we are bombarded with what others are up to, their seemingly huge, overnight success stories. And then we start comparing our life to theirs, our business to theirs, our success or lack of it to theirs. And once again we are in a place of lack, focusing on what we haven’t yet achieved. Having the perception that we are not as good as those around us.
Or perhaps you feel there is a lack of love in your life.
No-one to share your life with.
Again focusing on what is not there.
Or you don’t believe you can achieve your dreams and desires.
And you’re struggling with a lack of self-belief.
All this focus on lack, it is a wonder we ever achieve anything.
I have five steps you can start taking today to stop you focusing on the lack and help you change the energy and vibration you’re putting out to The Universe.
Celebrate How Far You Have Come
If you looked back over the last 12-24 months – how much has changed? How much have you achieved?It is easy to think we haven’t come very far on our entrepreneurial journey, when in fact the truth is opposite.
We have achieved so much, changed so much, grown as a person, as a business owner. Focus on your successes – EVERY SINGLE ONE. Celebrate them. Celebrate you. Take your focus away from what you have yet to achieve and spend time basking in your amazing achievements.
You Are Exactly Where You’re Meant to Be
We are all on a journey. We all have experiences in this life time from which we learn. When you have an acceptance that you’re exactly where you’re meant to be, you are not lacking, not failing, not missing out on anything.
The Universe Has Your Back
The Universe fully supports you – always. The more faith and trust you have in yourself and in The Universe the stronger you will feel. You don’t need to feel as if you’re doing this alone.
Get Support from a Coach/Mentor
Find a coach or mentor to work with. I had a session with a client today and what was required for her to get the results she wanted in her business was obvious, she couldn’t believe she hadn’t seen it. But we can’t. We don’t see our own stuff. It’s too close and we’re too emotionally involved.
If you want to shift from a place of lack and change your perspective. Find a coach/mentor who can support you to do that.
Be Aware of What you Say
Think about what you’re saying, what you’re telling yourself. Make it positive. Ensure it is focused on what you do want, not on what you don’t. Use phrases such as,
“I have so much energy today”
“I trust I can accomplish my goals”
“I believe in myself”
“I am making sales in my business”
Strong, powerful affirmations that will keep your energy in a place of abundance, not a place of lack.
The more awareness you have around your thoughts and how these affect your reality. The more you realise what you say to yourself, affects whether you’re in a lack mentality or in an abundant/’I can do this’ mentality, the more you will change the energy you are putting out to The Universe and in turn your results.
Which will you decide to be in today?
