“Don’t ever assume that someone else in your life is doing something to intentionally annoy you.”

What? Of course I don’t assume that anyone is intentionally trying to annoy me …….. Or do I?

Once I really started paying attention, I noticed that when I was annoyed it was often because I was taking something personally. Thinking things like:
😡 They did that knowing it would make things harder for me.
😡 They put that there but they KNEW it was in my way…argh.
😡 They must know that their decision inconveniences me.
😡 They must know that comment was hurtful.
😡 They must know I tried so hard to make this special and yet didn’t seem to even notice.
😡 They knew I wasn't available to do that for them.
😡 They obviously knew that was asking above and beyond.

Why would anyone I allow close to me in my life intentionally do the things I have assumed? They wouldn’t. But yet I took it personally.

So – next time you find yourself annoyed with someone in your life, ask yourself if their motives were really malicious in any way. If not, cut them some slack and speak up and ask for what you need. This is an opportunity to set some better boundaries and take a deep breath.

If they did act out of selfishness or maliciousness and that's a pattern, then maybe it’s time to find someone new to fill their valuable space in your life!

That's some truth right there, right?

Tell me in the comments - on a scale of 1 - 10, how much do you value your own worth?

Do your prices reflect that?

Does your confidence reflect that?

Does the value you discuss on your sales call support that?

If not, it just might be time for a mindset and offerings realignment.

As business owners, we get EXCITED to put ourselves out there sometimes. We put the cart before the horse and then we're frustrated when we don't get the results we were hoping for.

Business requires strategy. So before you spend the big bucks to hire that web designer, copywriter, brand photographer ... make sure you have a clear understanding of what you are offering.

🤔 What is your brand story?
🤨 What do you stand for?
😕 What do your packages look like?
🤯 Who are you helping?

@elizabethaimages and I talked about this in my Conversations with the Masters series this summer. As a brand photographer, she needs to understand your business mission, who your audience is that you want to connect with and the story you want to tell before she can create stunning images for you! I find the same for my clients when our team is creating marketing and design.

That's why in our process, coaching comes first! Want to dive into creating a solid foundation for your brand story and messaging? Check out the Daily Momentum Business Course!

👀 You know who you are!

➡️ You give away too much free advice on your sales calls
➡️ Your prospects thank you over and over and then don't buy and never come back
➡️ You're frustrated and confused about how to land customers

Don't give away your hard-earned knowledge!

I know you didn't mean to. You're just so passionate about what you do. You want to help.

And you CAN. But not like that. You have amazing programs and offers that will truly help clients long term ... don't short change them (or yourself) by providing temporary success!

Hold your boundaries. Remember what a sales call IS and what it ISN'T!

I’ve been in a bit of a fog lately.

There’s a lot to get done and a lot of self doubt rattling in my brain.

I made a decision to focus but not on what you might think.

But first, let me share what some of my most recent thoughts have included:
💭 Where do I fit in the professional world?
💭 What is my deeper sense of purpose?
💭 What kind of change do I really create for people?
💭 Have I found my sweet spot in coaching?
💭 Am I doing enough in my personal life for my husband and daughter?
💭 Am I doing enough to fill my own energy levels back up?

And sometimes my thoughts just look like this ...

💭

Literally nothing. Haha.

So many things have changed for me this year.
✅ Narrowed business focus
✅ Stretched and stressed body
✅ New team members
✅ New baby
✅ New technology systems
✅ New schedule

I started questioning myself and doubting my abilities and my place in this “everything is perfect” landscape. So what did I do?

I’ve been focusing on:
🔥 quieting down
🔥 paying attention to what sparks my inner fire
🔥 getting ok with the slow down
🔥 allowing my thoughts to be blank sometimes
🔥 letting go of control
🔥 laughing more
🔥 understanding when I feel happy and why

I’m starting to remember this is what life is really about anyway. Somewhere I forgot that in all of the DOING. Thankfully I have really intelligent friends who keep it real for me by showing up authentic and honest and messy and awesome.

So, today, I challenge you to sit back and observe the moments that make you happiest. That’s what you’re here for 💕 The rest is just fluff.

Are you willing to fight for and focus on what is possible instead of what is limiting you?

🚫 If you said no – then stop reading. 🚫

✅ If you said yes – even if that felt scary – then I count you as a momentum maker! ✅

How do you fight for possibilities? Consistent forward movement. Flaws and failures and all. Making decisions about what will make you happiest. And following through. Pushing through the fear! Then trusting that life will unfold from there as it’s meant to because you made the decision to be happier. After all, you did talk yourself up to it, think it through ahead of time and made the decision.

You can’t be successful 100% of the time. But you can be sure that your decisions lead to more fun and happiness. While steering you away from frustration, anxiety and disappointment. It really is all up to you.

Remember: you get to keep 100% of the limitations you fight for.

Which means ...

You also get to keep 100% of the possibilities you fight for!

In what direction are you fighting? 💪

Have you ever experienced resistance to sitting down and starting a big (or even sometimes small) project in your business?

I know I have! There it is. Staring you in the face. Deadline ticking away. Yet, you, a successful business owner have now made 10 phone calls you were putting off, checked off everything else in your to-do list, and completed a load of laundry to boot. And yet – that project still looms.

From one of my favorite productivity books:
“The hardest part of any important task is getting started on it in the first place. Once you actually begin work on a valuable task, you seem to be naturally motivated to continue.”
- Brian Tracy, Eat That Frog!

Why do you procrastinate as an entrepreneur?

Do you believe in signs? I do. I also believe this is the key to creating abundance. Trusting that timing is always on point. Our health gives us signs. So do our bank accounts. So do our animals. So do our businesses. Our job is to pay attention. Listen and heed the warning signs or motivational signs of moving forward. Everything always gets done - even when it's not on your timeline.

Why do you wait for external validation?

There is a whole world waiting to see you believe in yourself – why keep them waiting?

I can remember so many times when others shifted my trajectory in life by believing in me more than I believed in myself. I can also remember times when the disbelief of others forced me to fire up my self-confidence up to believe in myself even more. We all have this fire inside, this deep inner spark that is yearning to be ignited. Right? You feel it, I know you do. 

Coaching is such an amazing opportunity to inspire that belief in others. I always keep it real but when I see potential, man oh man, you better believe you are going to hear about it. I will push you. I will encourage you. I will help you figure out the steps. I will believe in your vision more than you can in the moment. Until you believe it yourself.

I want to just take this moment to remind you that…

🔥 You know what lights you up.
🔥 You know what energizes you.
🔥 You know what makes you happiest.
🔥 You know the outcome you truly want.

Don't stop now. Keep going. Root down into your mission, your vision for the world and GO GET IT!

And if you’re looking for a coach? Reach out! Let’s have a conversation. I want to hear what you’re looking for.

I CALL BS!!

We’ve all heard the phrase “time is money.”

While this can be true, it’s real easy to start to build a whole lot of guilt around not spending all of your time working if you believe this.

I’m just going to say it - this phrase is BS.

I know plenty of business owners who spend a ton of unfocused time on their businesses and don’t make any money. They're ALWAYS busy but also ALWAYS struggling.

Sound familiar? Then I'd ask you - are you spending your time wisely or are you spending your time constantly chasing fires or hiding behind the scenes?

I’d like to suggest we adjust this phrase to say  “Time SPENT WISELY turns into money.”

How can you spend your time wisely?

I'm glad you asked! Here are a few ideas for you:
⏲️ Set a time limit on tasks that need to get done.
🙇‍♂️ Don't wing it. Plan ahead and prioritize tasks.
🔢 Block out time each week for specific sets of tasks in your business.
⤵️ Break down big tasks into smaller ones.

Want my specialized approach to mastering your time management so you can stop chasing chaos, putting out fires, and ACTUALLY GET THINGS DONE?? Check out my time management for entrepreneurs minicourse!

Don't have time for it? Then you, my love, NEED it.

My breathe was caught in my chest.

I was out of my league.

I had just moved to a new city, was climbing with new partners, was on a new route, trying an overhang ... and I was scared. A friend of mine climbing the route next to me looked at me and said, “Katie! B-R-E-A-T-H-E!”

Dang. Such a simple reminder. It’s amazing what your breath can do. Anytime I’m faced with a moment that is tugging at my fears, I remember that moment and I b-r-e-a-t-h-e.

It’s the one tool that is always available to you. Now, this picture? This was a few years back at a reunion with some of my closest climbing friends, including the one who said that all important word to me. On this day, I relaxed, believed in myself, breathed and had a beautiful day.

When do you need to breathe more? When do you find yourself holding your breath?

I love being an entrepreneur and I love my clients. But some days can just be plain hard.

There have been a looootttt of learning curves in my journey.

I’ll admit when I was 24 I was super ignorant to what it took to start a business. In some ways that served me and in a lot of ways it did not.

Especially when it came to actually running a business - not a hobby!
Check out my blog that showcases the good, the bad and the ugly of being an entrepreneur!

What about you? What are your favorite and least favorite parts of being a business owner? 💗

Your business success doesn’t happen overnight.

Start small and work your way up to the bigger tasks. Prioritize what you need most and start working toward those new goals. Make sure your actions are aligned with the goals you have in your business.

If you are trying to get new clients, are you hiding behind your computer only doing social posts? Or are you making personal invitations to people and to referral sources to make genuine connections?

If you are trying to get more social followers, are you committed to posting multiple times a day and taking courses to learn more about gaining followers and posting effectively?

If you are trying to set better boundaries in your business, are you writing down what you want your schedule and income to look like? Then re-organizing your processes to match your goals? And sticking to them!

So often I find my clients say one thing about what's important but where they spend their time says something else. Be honest with yourself - your success depends on it!

Ever feel like you're pushing a rock uphill? It's in those transition moments when the momentum slows down and you know it's time for a change but you're resisting ... rock pushing.

Remember to use your strength wisely. You have all the power to change course, make adjustments, choose better, or do things differently.

The problem at hand is fixable. You know it is.

Everything will get done. It always does.

Don't focus so much on the rock, but rather on the way around it.

Decide on the action you can take to work around your block.

What is the course of least resistance that will make you happiest?

I was focusing on so many directions when I started my business (and years afterward), I spent most of my time putting out fires instead of making progress. I was tired, annoyed constantly and on the struggle bus when it came to advancing my business.

A huge mistake many of us make is taking on too many projects at once. Naturally, we have a ton of ideas. And, with an overwhelming number of ways to move forward, market, connect, and grow it's easy to drown in the to-do list of things that need to get done.

When you focus in too many directions, you're actually doing a disservice to your clients. They don't get the best of you and they will sense your scattered nature.

Choose one focus and tackle it with passion. See it through. Finish it so you can master it.

Then, once you've mastered that focus, you can devote yourself to the next passion project.

It can be hard to narrow in on just one project (I know!!) ... but your success will grow so much faster when you do!💗

Why don't more people chase their dreams?

Some people are scared of the work so they don’t even try.

Or they start and get discouraged.

Or they quit along the way.

What if each dream is a learning opportunity to understand more about what you really want? Because TRUST ME when I say that the dreams you really want to accomplish don’t get old, too frustrating to continue on with or too hard to keep working at.

The real heart dreams stick. Because you won’t stop. No matter what.

Before you decide to quit, be certain that’s what you really want. If it is, then make your decision with the knowledge that there will be another dream (there always is). And that this experience will actually shape and form more information about what you truly desire in your life.

When you find a dream you're not willing to quit on though ... keep going.
💪 Be relentless.
⁉️ Don't be afraid to ask questions and get help.
👀 Get visible and share your excitement.
👯 Find a coach or a mentor to motivate and guide you.
🔥 Find an inspiration source to keep your fire burning.
