I read something once (I don’t remember where) that resonates with me at this time every year and reminds me to be responsible for creating the life I desire. It goes something like this – You can live 99 years repeating the same year every year, or, you can live 99 different years, if you are willing to grow. I personally like the later since living 99 years in the same way is too boring for me.
I like to change it up and have a theme or some broad intention that guides me as I think about creating my year. This year is going to be the year I use my audacity to step into my greatness and spread The SOUL Principle as much as possible. The SOUL Principle is an idea that came to me after praying about how to articulate the message I wanted to share.
It stands for “Serving Others With Undeniable Loving”. That is the core message I teach and is the basis for being able to sell authentically and honorably. In addition, when you come from that place and orient yourself to being of service to others, you find a whole new level of confidence, which translates into having the audacity to be boldly empowered and take actions that catapult your business forward. In essence you tap into a higher power and radiant energy source which guides you and your business on a path of growth. If you want more detail on The SOUL Principle, click here.
If you truly want to have a new and different year, then adopt my motto. “In order for my business to grow, I must grow.” Additionally, decide right now that you are willing to find your audacity to be authentic and affluent this year. Here are four ways you can find your audacity and set yourself up for realizing and living a phenomenal 2010 with authenticity and affluence.
1. Have the audacity to listen to yourself. There is a tremendous amount of “following” going on in the digital world and it is good and refreshing to hear other ways to do business. However, what is missing is the daily ritual of coming back to ourselves and hearing our own inner guidance. You have your own special and unique path to follow and make sure you always listen to yourself over others. Be choosy about who you listen to and how much of their advice you follow. Don’t do exactly what others do blindly, have the audacity to listen to your own guidance.
2. Have the audacity to be innovative. When you heed the call of your inner guidance and take action based on that intuitive sense you possess, you can create innovative products and services. The world needs your unique blend of creativity and innovation and there has never been a more profound opportunity to create your signature digital line of products, than right now. Be aware that your mind will tell you your capabilities are limited. However, if you tap into your heart and spirit, you create a flow in alignment with the infinite, and anything is possible.
3. Have the audacity to use everything for your upliftment and growth. My mentors, Ron and Mary Hulnick, at The University of Santa Monica, taught we this ever-important view of life. Decide to take responsibility for the outcome of this year. Make a choice to use every encounter, interaction, experience, lesson, and event as an opportunity to grow and allow it to lift you up to a higher plane of life. Learn as much as you can about yourself through every experience. Intend to clear away the negative self-deprecating emotions and transform your life experience into positive blessings. You will be much more productive and attract more affluence as a result.
4. Have the audacity to infuse your Soul into your business. We will never again experience a time in our lives when the playing field has been leveled and the opportunity for heart-felt businesses to thrive has come. Today is the day. Right now is the year. This moment represents the beginning of the decade where the unconscious business era is waning. The way has been cleared for soul-based, profit-with-a-purpose, conscious businesses to rise to the top. Acknowledge the upwelling inside of yourself that is ready to create that soul-satisfying
business and do it. Take the necessary action and decide to imprint your Soul’s message into your daily business policies and procedures. Have the audacity to live truly aligned with your higher calling and notice how easily customers find you and buy from you.
Isn’t it time to have the audacity to be authentic and affluent in your business?
