How you KNOW if you should or shouldn’t…
My very, very, very, very, very first "self improvement" investment was $5000.
I didn't talk to anyone.
I didn't ask for ROI.
I didn't sit on the decision for a month or a year or even a week while I "figured out" if it was the right thing or not.
I FELT that it was a course that would have the power to shift everything for me ---
--- and I was willing to put my ass (and my money) on the line for that bet,
because I was fucking sick of watching my relationships fall apart, and sick of hopping from job to job to job to find the thing that was right for me.
I FELT that it had that power.
I didn't have proof that it would.
I didn't need proof that it would.
I FELT that it would have the power to change everything for me,
because I was ready to show up to it to ALLOW it to do its work.
It didn't make sense from a financial perspective ---
--- at that point, I'd never dropped that amount of money on (literally) anything in my life. Ever.
Nobody would understand it ---
--- I didn't even mention it to anyone I knew. Not one person.
I had absolutely no guarantees ---
--- except for what *I* put into it, if I was willing to show up for it, and what I was willing to Receive from it.
And it changed EVERYTHING.
It changed the way I looked at the world.
It changed the way I showed up in the world.
It changed the way I felt about myself,
and what I believed about what's possible for me.
It gave me tools that I still use, to this day, to unblock the 'kinks in my hose,' in my life and in my relationships.
It was one of the most bizarre moments of my adult life ---
--- I'd never really heard of coaching before, I didn't just have $5k just laying around, and still I dove in headfirst into something within about 48 hours after learning about it.
I make most of my decisions that way today.
And I don't mean that just from a financial standpoint --- Money is, after all, only ONE of the ways we invest our Energy...
I mean that in every big decision or growth step I take,
in every way I put my ass on the line,
in every way I get uncomfortable in Service of the calling,
in every way I make conscious #uplevels.
I don't have to KNOW how it's going to turn out (nor can I),
or have guarantees (those don't exist),
or understand all the nuts and bolts and ROI (only looking at these and we're missing more than half the picture) ---
--- if it feels like POSSIBILITY,
if it vibrates something within me that feels like aliveness and recognition,
if it feels like EXPANSION,
And I get creative to help the Universe Co-create it with me,
especially when it seems like a long shot or when it would be easy for me to start dropping into Fear or Doubt.
This, for me, is when we're investing and expanding our Energy BEYOND where we are,
allowing our Sacred Feminine to expand to Receive more ---
--- and then taking Sacred Masculine Action to meet it there.
We literally CAN'T have the catalytic and Quantum growth we're looking for unless we're willing to go BEYOND our Edge.
Where are you still waiting and wishing for 'that thing' to fall into your lap instead of letting yourself expand, beyond your Edges, (often uncomfortably) to meet it there?
