There are two sides to every business, especially the service type businesses.
On one side, you attract the clients, you do the work to get them in.
On the other side, you deliver the service and this is the part you love, isn’t it?
You love to work with people…
You love seeing the change happen to them…
You love feeling like you are fulfilling your purpose but…
You do not have enough clients on this side of the equation because you don’t actually like the ‘attracting the clients’ bit.
You feel it takes something away from you to have to advertise and you start talking about having no money to do it, having no time to do it and having no self-belief to do it but ultimately, you are trying to do the feeling your way to success thing that a lot of spiritual types end up doing and it keeps them pretty darned broke.
But you kinda think that this is the norm!
That you have to follow your spirit-guide or something but I am sorry but I really do not think that it is the Spirit guiding you here. Let me be blunt and tell you that you are guiding yourself with fear and you are therefore doing nothing to promote yourself except give me some weird little statements from time to time that you think will inspire me to ask for your service but I never do because the spiritual person over here is giving me the inspirational statements and then going on to tell me how EXACTLY to take the next step to work with them.
But you might even look down at that person, you think she is too needy, you think she is not as spiritual as you but guess what?! She is actually serving people while you are pretending to.
What is it with us spiritual types that makes us think that we are somehow above telling people EXACTLY HOW WE CAN HELP THEM and then ASKING THEM TO PAY THE MONEY FOR IT!
After all, a workman is due his pay, don’t you think?
And if you refuse to ask people to pay you, then you had better go find yourself a job where someone else can tell you how much you are worth!
YOU have a gift, a solid awesome gift…
YOu have the enhanced intuition that could help people get clear on their path and help them move forward and you hide it away because you are afraid (and honey, you can call it what you like, but it is simply fear!)
Fear that your gift will be looked down on…
Fear that you are not up to the task…
Fear that __________________ (You fill in the gaps, what is your fear?)
Well, honey, do you want to impact people or not?
Do you want to fulfil your life’s calling or not?
Will you keep using the Spirit as an excuse not to serve people?
And will you live to regret the time you wasted pretending to be led by anything other than fear?
It is time to wake up and change someone’s life and find the internal courage to ask them to pay you for it.
It does not matter where you start – Start at $5 if you must, start charging for your services and ask people to leave you testimonials publicly – ACTUALLY ASK THEM TO DO IT!
And then little by little, (Or in one huge leap) increase your prices until the marketplace will bear no more but really, in this day and age, you get to determine where that is as long as you have courage.
Stop navel-gazing and claiming to be waiting for guidance.
The guidance has been given – You have a gift that helps people so do whatever it takes to use it to help people – I know, Rocket Science!
And this is the ROCKET SCIENCE bit, you have to KNOW that it is OKAY to be paid for your gifting becuase while you harbour those internal feelings that tell you that it is somehow beneath you to be paid to help people, you will continually get in your own way.
And that is just plain crazy!
Face the internal demons so that you can change lives.
Stop feeding yourself the lie that you need someone else to acknowledge you.
Acknowledge yourself and TELL EVERYONE how you can help them.
Please, just get on with it.
The world does need your giftings and it is okay to build a life using something you are good at…
It is absolutely fine for you to make money doing what you love. (there is a sense of deja-vu as I type that sentence! Possibly because I type it sooooo much!)
