It’s a Vibrational Thing

do what you love and the money will followLife 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.

Scientific researchers have been proving the power of our consciousness for some time now.

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 goodness 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.

  • This goddess has ‘crazy dreams’ of global impact, luscious living, and inspiring every family to eat off the good china every single day!
    And I’m so very glad that I found you, Jeannette, rather than a more ‘practical’ coach.
    These days, like Alice, I believe six impossible things before breakfast!
    Bliss-ings and so much admiration

  • Rebecca,
    Are you acknowledging your talents and abilities? Have you decided that if something is too easy it’s not worth anything? What do you do very well and very easily that others may not do so well?
    Once you acknowledge your talents and abilities you will start seeing YOU in everything you do.
    Being you is all that is required, what if you did not have to find that ONE thing? What if it was a multitude of different things?
    What else is possible that you have not considered yet?

    I am stuck in a realm of I actually don’t know what I love to do. Everything I try I am pretty good at, but nothing makes my heart sing! How do I figure this out? I have meditated, asked for guidance to no avail, yet I still find things interesting, but not anything I love to do. I love to sleep just so I can dream of doing things not possible in real life, like flying and breathing underwater without any gear on. That’s about it. Any suggestions?

  • Maybe if we take the attention off “success” and “money”, we can do what we love for tlhow it makes us feel, and what it gives to others- and then the resistance associated with monetary gain will subside and the rest will follow!

  • Dontcha think you get more of what you want when you’re happy? So, why not work for happiness, instead of for the big paycheck? Because when you’re happy, wonderful things happen – which may or may not have dollar signs attached.
    And happy, after all, is a feeling state beyond price.
    I work happy and guess what? I have everything I need, including time, space, friends, connection, meaning, purpose, creativity, and, yes, money.
    How’s that sound? 🙂

    Did I say that I love you Jeannette? I did and I am doing it here again. Thank you for reminding me that I am on your side of the fence! So powerful!

  • Kate Corbin says:

    This is brilliant, Jeannette. You were (and are) for me what Jeanna was for you. Thank God for you, Jeannette Maw!

  • Janette says:

    I love this post!! Has to be the most respectful “agree to disagree” piece I’ve ever read. And that in itself speaks volumes for the kinds of people both you and Michele are – loving, inclusive, smart and crystal clear.
    And for the record? I’m choosing “anything’s possible”….. even when my old beliefs are trying to tempt me to land in Michele’s part of the playground.

  • One of my idols writes about another. LOVE!!!! The two “J”s rock my world!

  • Jackie says:

    Ha! I knew you’d have something to say about that post.

  • YES!
    I know many people who do what they love and don’t make money from it (or not enough).
    They have the point of view that it’s hard to make a lot of money doing what they love and the universe is giving them exactly that!
    One of the best and fastest way I have experienced to change the vibration is to ask a question because it means we don’t have to pick just one way to change our vibration. It becomes an infinite menu of choices 🙂
