I Woke Up With a Bursting Heart!

heart bursting

This morning I was inspired in my sleep to wake up, get up, and to write this blog post. I was so excited I was BURSTING!!! I am one of those people whose mind and heart never stops working. When I get excited about something I feel it bursting out through my heart center and when I feel this sensation I know I must share it.

I truly believe that life is about serving others and making a difference and that is why my dream inspired me to share why I personally love what some people call being in ‘Sales’. I like to call it SALES…. or Sharing Awesome LOVE Everyday with Someone! Call it what you will, it’s the best thing you could ever do or be in as far as I am concerned.

As my acronym states, everyday I get to share awesome love with someone somewhere. I get to offer benefit and improvement to someone’s life and that benefit or improvement may continue to work in that person’s life everyday moving forward.

Whether I am selling a nutritional product, a coaching package, or my recent offering of a hair mineral analysis which tests the hair for heavy metals and mineral imbalances in the body, I am helping to change people’s lives! What’s not to love? How LUCKY am I?

It truly perplexes me why anyone would see the sales with a negative connotation. I fully embrace and am honored that I can perform this role for my fellow teammates here on planet earth. 🙂 I am pumped, over-joyed and thrilled about it!!!

If I can help to make a difference in someone’s life to feel better, be healthier, understand themselves more, have more Joy, worry less, improve their health, look better, feel better…… etc. etc. etc., of course I would help them. Why wouldn’t I? In fact, I am excited to help people. I want to do more and more and more of that! I get so excited about it, it wakes me up and brings me to the keyboard. 🙂

I believe if we are alive and breathing here on earth we are in sales. It is our job to serve each other and to make a difference in the lives of others. Do it with Love, do it with Kindness and if you are in the field deemed ‘Sales’ do it with honesty and excitement, and with the intent to make a difference, and you WILL make a difference. Serving others is a gift that we are all born with and it is the gift of life. When we both share this gift and receive this gift we get to experience the magic of it.

Children are the best ‘sales people’ on earth. They are naturals. They get excited about things and they share it. Whether they just found the coolest rock or they want the candy they see on that low lying shelf at the grocery store, they are going to let you know loud and clear. They will show and tell you why they should have it or why that rock is the most exciting rock on planet earth. 🙂 They naturally share their exuberance and delight.

If you are someone who is reading this and has an offering for the world that you share on a regular basis, I encourage you to get excited about it. Do it with LOVE and with an intent to make a difference and most of all own what you do and be proud of it. It is an HONOR to be able to make a difference in the live’s of others.

What is the Secret Ingredient for Success in Life & Business???

Sharing a Secret ?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

What is the difference between people who struggle in life and/or business, and those who accelerate and advance with gusto?  What stops people from fully enjoying and embracing what they do? What is that secret ingredient that makes a difference?

As a Life & Business Coach, I hear these very common questions a lot. What’s missing in my life or my work? Why am I not happy? What is this void I am feeling? Why are others successful at what they do and I am not? “Something is missing, they say”.

So what exactly is the fuel behind what we do, why we do it, and for what reason?

For many years as both a Life Coach and in leading entrepreneurs, I have seen this common thread often. Many people have the misconception that the importance is in what they do, verses why they are doing it.

So what is this secret fuel or ingredient? The answer is PASSION! Passion is the energy behind creation and doing. It is the fuel that propels us to greatness, or even to simplicity.  It is something we desire. Either way, passion is an integral component to why we do what we do, whether it’s personally, or in business.

Sometimes we need to be very honest and clear about digging deep to discover the passion that already exists in the things we do. For example, perhaps you have a home based business specializing in non-toxic products and believe you are truly passionate about your products and services? Is it really the products you are passionate about? Or is it that you love you non-toxic products because you have a passion for a greener earth? Is that what truly fuels your mission?

Many times what we are doing is simply using various vehicles to fuel our passions. Vehicles we use might be: types of businesses, being a part of an organization, being a group member, volunteering, creating, art, and the list is endless.

What if we did not focus on ‘The What’ but stayed clear on the ‘Why’? When we see clearly and align with our passions, the channels open up to us, like opening floodgates! This is when the magic happens. The Universe clearly hears our message and matches our frequency. Now we can soar to great heights faster and smoother.

What is passionate to you? Is it being the maker of your own destiny? World peace? Time freedom? Animals? Feeding the hungry? Natural foods? The list is endless.

My friend Helen recently opened a raw food café called Bliss Café. Helen is passionate about food as our medicine, and passionate about sharing both the food, and her message, with others. Anyone who knows her will agree. In fact, her passion is contagious!

Would you agree that Steve Jobs, Nelson Mandela, Ghandi, Mother Teresa, Bill Gates, Julia Child, all were or are passionate? Absolutely! Passions come in all forms.

When we wake up and embrace our Passion, the magic happens. It does not matter if we are the bread maker, service provider, concrete layer, or financial wizard, as long as we are fueled by our personal passions, we will have a winning formula.

I have heard people say they don’t understand why their business is not working, or why they feel stuck. I offer to them a challenge, to truly seek out and find their underlying passions.  They will then understand the ‘why’ behind what they are doing.

Perhaps you are in a transitory position, or job that is not ideal, but rather than looking at it as a chore, or a drain, see it as a very integral and important stepping stone on your journey to developing your passion. See it as leading you to the next phase of your journey which is fueled by your passion. When you see it as a stepping stone to your passion, rather than as a grind, it changes everything. It is moving you closer to your desires, not taking you away. Seeing it this way shifts everything.

The same is true in education. When we are truly interested and passionate about a subject the learning comes easy to us. There is a sweetness, and eagerness, and we want to eat it all up, just like a good book, or a great read.

Two of my passions are Nature and Beauty. So now I go out and take pictures in nature. I then share them with the world through Social Media. Am I a professional photographer? No, but I am riding on my passions and utilizing them to benefit others at the same time. Too often we get caught up in details that block our passion. As Nike says “Just Do It”.

So the next time you feel disconnected as to who you are, or why you are doing what you do, ask yourself what makes me happy? What do I love to do? What puts a spring in my step? What gets me out of bed in the morning? Then take those seeds of passion and plant them! There is no right or wrong way to do this, just get the ball rolling.

Have fun with it, listen to your heart, and enjoy!
