It’s a Vibrational Thing
Life coach colleague Michele Woodward is right when she says “Do what you love and the money won’t follow.”
(That’s right, she said “won’t.”)
She’s 100% correct.
In fact, we all are. About whatever we believe.
Because it’s a vibrational thing.
In fact, you’ve been doing the same thing in your own life, day after day … proving that thoughts have power. And that we get what we expect. Including when you believe it’s hard to make a lot of money doing what you love.
Which is why it’s helpful to choose your thoughts wisely.
Because you’ll be proven right whatever you decide. It’s a vibrational thing.
It’s why when Michele says some jobs won’t pay off financially no matter how badly you want them to, she’s right. And it’s why when I say anything is possible that you dare set your mind to, I’m right. Our attention literally alters the world around us. And we don’t have to be in agreement for each of us to be proven right.
I understand some leaders feel their highest service is to help us be practical and avoid disappointment; to teach us how to work within (what they believe are) the very real limits of this world.
Others see it differently. We have come to understand that our imagination is our only limitation – and that when we transcend what we’ve been taught is “realistic” we can have our cake and eat it, too.
I not only believe that, I am living proof of it.
Which wouldn’t be the case if I’d been led by one of the many coaches who believe in limits to my possibilities.
Thankfully, I showed up on Jeanna Gabellini’s door. Fresh out of CoachU training, where I’d been taught that most of us coaches wouldn’t be successful, and that the few of us who were lucky enough to build full time practices wouldn’t likely make more than $30,000. “So don’t quit your day job,” they said.
And I believed them. Because these guys would know. They’re the experts!
Thank God Jeanna invited me to question this “wisdom” I’d gleaned from the leaders in the field. She reminded me that I could create whatever I wanted. When I told her that was a full thriving practice in one month, she said, “Then that’s what we’ll do.”
“Then that’s what we’ll do!”
(Remembering her words gives me goosebumps to this day!)
She didn’t say, “Well, don’t get crazy here, Jeannette – it takes a long time and there’s a lot of hard work involved. And you better have a backup plan and a side gig lined up, just in case.”
She didn’t say that.
She said, “Then that’s what we’ll do.”
Jeanna believed in my possibilities, and that helped me believe in them, too. (With her guidance I filled my practice in three months and was on track to replace a six figure job by year two.)
Which wouldn’t have happened had I been led by someone who believed in very real limits of the world.
Because – one more time for the record – we’re all right about whatever we believe. Our conscious attention is what makes it so.
Since I’m me and not Michele, I’m closing this with a virtual toast to recognizing that energy, consciousness and vibration are the power tools for this day and age. And to plugging into leaders who teach us how to leverage them to our highest success – whatever crazy dream we dare dream.
