Wow it's been the busy couple weeks. Last day at my job, preparing to leave Seattle for a month and a half etc. Just now finally got a minute to publish my results (calculated them a few days ago). Here is where I was on Dec 4:
All this time as I was wondering whether I am on track or not. It started with when I realized that I wasn't clear on how I will measure: but cash I will get by Dec 4 or by cash that got committed by Dec 4 but not necessarily make it to me by that time. Lesson learned for future challenges to be super clear about measuring the result!
I think to be on the safe side and stay in integrity I would consider it that I didn't meet it (as I did create $15K in cash by Dec 4).
I have mixed feelings about how this went:
So sitting in this dualistic feelings here is what I decided:
Now my job at Boeing is over. Friday was my last day. For the first time since 2003 I on't have a job and don't plan to get one yet. Looking forward to the next few months of rest, exploration of what's next and going with the flow while still taking inspired action on what calls me.
I will keep sharing my adventures!
Wow time flies! Couple days ago I was at my half mark, 2 weeks of my 4 weeks.
So today, Friday evening I decided to balance out my $$ created by now. Here is what I got by now: $3330 generated in hard cash and $6873 generated in created opportunities that will result in cash in December but I don't have cash in hand by now (I will categorize them as bonuses to my game at this point). So for now I have $11670 to go! I'd better get my ass in gear!
Wins since my last post:
Ready for a week-end of work and play! I will finally create time to get very clear on my target clients I want to work with, update my website etc. I will also do some de-cluttering and feng shui my abundance area of my house to create space for the money flow!
Have a great week-end everyone!
Wow tiredness getting to me. Not having enough sleep, doing intense work and still wanting to stay present to this commitment, I started to notice that something gets to change. I also noticed that I started to put lots of pressure on myself, that I am supposed to do something about this goal even when I have no free time or energy. Something to process and integrate next time I do a session.
Wins/Insights for the day:
Off to sleep now, I can't believe it's only day 3 of the training. 4 more to go! Looking forward to creating a breakthrough in the abundance in time and my energy level!
Wow it's been a long day... Waking up at 8 am, being in training for almost 12 hours and tomorrow starting at 8 30 am. So tonight post will be short.
Today was the first day of 7-day Harmony Integration Coach training I came back to staff. I can't believe it's been half a year since I've taken it myself as a student. So much has changed since then! This time I am back, lo learn but first and foremost support the coaches who are going through it the first time.
My personal intention for these upcoming 7 days is to fully process and integrate the last blocks so I can step in my full power as a coach and run it as a business and fully serve people without holding back. Synchronistically enough right around the time I stood up today in front of everyone and declared that intention I got an email from a potential client I had a discovery session a few weeks ago saying that she would like to work with me starting December!
I also manifested a pretty awesome opportunity for me to stretch myself and step into a leading role in the training tomorrow morning (will share details later).
I will leave you with another video from Bashar on what abundance is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4mz90E9e8QQ
OMG what a full day!
I have fully accepted that fact that before 3pm I am just not being productive on anything related to my coaching and creating money (a track record of the whole last week). BUT after about 6 pm till about midnight I rock!
After getting some of my project management work done in the first part of the day, and between 4 and 6 pm helping set up a room for a Harmony Integration coach training that starts tomorrow here in White Rock, BC, I got home about 6 pm. For about couple hours I was fighting myself trying to be productive and work on my website or doing anything on my coaching and I was totally resisting and procrastinating. About 8 pm I finally slowed down and asked myself what I would be excited about doing in that area rather than pushing myself. Reading came to mind. I've started reading this book "Prosperous Coach" about how to create a full coaching practice in a fun and connected way. So I set everything aside and got to continue reading it. OMG this book rocks my world! I love the approach which is all about creating relationships and focusing on giving value rather than selling and at the same time creating an abundant practice with committed and exciting clients.
Flip flopping the whole day about what level of detail I need to design my coaching packages to, by the end of the night after reading the book I decided that it overall doesn't matter. The most important thing is to focus on the kind of clients I want to work with and then diving into coaching, no more excuses or busy work. So what I will do is create a list of criteria I want to use to filter out MY clients and then put a video on my Services page about that and whoever is interested and fits the criteria can sign up for an initial free session with me and if by the end of it it feels like a fit to work together we can design a package right there and then that fits best. Plus I will make my initial free sessions 2 hours looks instead of 30 minutes so I can really serve people and they can fully experience my coaching and see if this is something that works for them and worth their investment.
So in the next week even with my busy schedule of staffing Harmony Integration coach training during the day and putting in project management hours in the evenings I commit to finish the list of criteria for my clients, create a video and have it ready to launch next week when I am back in Seattle and have more time.
And I feel so happy that I got our of resistant space about reaching out to prospective clients to an exciting one!
Wins from the day:
So excited about tomorrow! In the next seven days straight I will be helping facilitate Harmony Integration coach training which I took half a year ago and which was so pivotal in my personal development as well as in my coaching. Looking forward to serving all the new coaches diving into it as well as learning lots myself and creating massive shifts in my life through this intensive work.
Time to go to bed and get some sleep.
Insights and learnings:
Going to bed now. I love this learning experience. I want to end this post with the quote from famous speaker Jim Rohn that a friend of mine posted on facebook the other day: "Making your first million is great, but the money isn't the reward, it's who you become on the journey that makes it a goal worth accomplishing." Not exact words but close...
Looking forward to see who I will become in less than 4 weeks from now! :)
Day 3 went slower than the other days.
Insights and learnings:
Day 2 went overall well. Some work, some social time, even a bit of dancing, and lots of downtime.
Day 3 in progress... Results tomorrow :)
OK day 1 of my $15K in 4 weeks challenge is coming to an end.
I loved today! I had lots of fun and felt very much in the flow.
I didn't really get on with my goal until after 3pm.
But after that things just manifested perfectly!
Wins from Day 1:
Insights and learnings from Day 1:
Did you ever need lots of cash in a short period of time and had no idea how to create it? Try on a challenge!
As of 11pm last night I took on a challenge to create $15K in the next 4 weeks (by December 4). I have no idea how yet.
How did it start
My friend and also a life coach (who's name will stay anonymous) emailed me couple days ago asking if I want to create "make $10K in 4 weeks" challenge. She said she wanted to go on a trip but didn't feel it was completely responsible for her unless she generates some cash first. I Said "Sure why not!". When we had our first co-coaching session, I decided that I really wanted $15K (not $10K) so that by Dec 4 when I am out of my job I would have generated enough money to feel secure with all my financial obligations. I also decided that I only want to do it in a way that is fun. Scary and uncomfortable: yes, but no more hard work or pushing up the hill!
How I feel
I feel excited and scared. Excited about the opportunity to finally do what I preach "anything is possible when you commit to it" and stretch myself in this area. Scared what if i won's be able to do it.
Is there a guarantee that I will make it happen? Absolutely not. Then I thought: what's the worst thing that can happen? I won't create all of these money and feel like a looser. But I will definitely create some, learn new things, challenge myself and expand my comfort zone. And have fun in the process. And learn what it takes so I can then coach others in doing that! I also remembered that I don't need to know the "How" before I commit, "How" often only shows up after the intention and commitment is set.
Why do I share it here
I don't remember where I read it that when you share your goals/commitments with others, your chances to make it happen go much higher, also so does the disappointment if you fail.
I also remember from the past experiences: it's easy to create if I am 100% committed. If I am half way it's actually harder. So declaring it here I put by butt on the line and will have more motivation to do whatever it takes.
So my commitment is:
The game is on!
I will keep you posted here on my progress!
See my next blog for Day 1 results!
Feel inspired to do it too?
Join me with your own goals for the next 4 weeks!
