The Episode Breakdown:
I am so excited to dive straight into today’s episode, because today we are talking about how to create more flow, ease and simplicity in your business. Specifically, we’ll be talking about the mindset and beliefs that you need in order to create more flow in your business.
I’ve broken it down into 4 simple steps to release the beliefs that have held you back from having more flow, ease, fun and freedom in your business. Really, that’s what flow is about – having time freedom, financial freedom and emotional freedom.
Step 1. Get rid of your beliefs that working hard = more money
This first step is super duper crucial to your success in business and in determining how much freedom you truly want to have, especially when it comes to time freedom.
The most important thing you need to do if you want to create more flow and freedom in your business is to get rid of any beliefs you have about working hard and what that means for making money, signing clients and being successful.
If you have the belief that working hard = more money, more success, more clients, then you need to get rid of those beliefs. They are holding you back and they are forms of self-sabotage.
Deep down, you probably know that it’s not the truth. Take me for example – I work 10-15 hours a week at the moment and I still sign high-ticket clients, have $10-20k months, I’m going for $40k months and see myself as successful – and I don’t work hard.
I am all about the path of least resistance and doing things in a way that’s so easy, simple and flowy.
There are so many beliefs out there that you’ve got to work hard to make money, to sign clients and to make it in the world. Well, how about this instead – if I want to create more flow, then I need to believe that working hard doesn’t necessarily equal more money.
When you want to create more flow and freedom, any beliefs that do not serve you in creating that have got to go.
Let go of any beliefs that working hard = making more money, signing more clients, being more successful or that it means you’re worthy. Work through them and get rid of them.
Working hard can equal making more money if you want it to, but working *less* can also equal making more money if you want it to. Your first step is to get rid of all those sh*tty beliefs that are holding you back.
Step 2. Replace your old belief with a new empowered belief
Whenever you rip out the weed, which is the sh*tty limiting beliefs that are holding you back, you replace it with a beautiful new plant or a new seed of something you desire to grow.
This is my favourite metaphor – you guys know I love gardening. When I’m weeding in my garden, I’m getting rid of all these pesky ugly weeds that just keep popping up. I don’t chop them from the top and pretend that I’ve fixed it, I rip them out from the root. Then I replace them with a seed or a plant that I love and that supports me in having the garden of my dreams.
It’s the same thing with creating more flow and more freedom in your business.
When you get rid of an old belief, you need to immediately replace it with a new one that supports you in creating your dream business.
Think about the next-level CEO version of you. You need to create new empowering beliefs that *that* version of you believes. If you were working less, earning more, living your dream life, working with dream clients and just loving what you were doing every day – what does that version of you believe about business?
Here are some specific journaling prompts that you can use to workshop this:
- What new empowering beliefs does the CEO or next-level empowered version of me believe about hard work?
- What does that version of you believe about working less?
- What does that version of you believe about receiving money and being worthy of receiving money?
- What does that version of you believe about signing aligned clients who have the money, pay in full and pay on time?
- What does that version of you believe about creating content?
- What does she talk about in her content? Does she hold back or does she say what she wants?
- What does she believe about showing up? How does she show up?
- Does she feel like she has to work hard to be successful or does she believe that her content is working for her?
- What does she believe about investing in herself and in her business?
- What does she believe about being herself online?
- What does she believe about taking breaks? When she takes breaks, is she fully resting and taking care of herself?
- Does she put herself before others or does she put everyone else’s needs above her own?
- What does she believe about pricing her offers, raising her rates and selling?
- What does she believe about doing things in her business? Does she believe that she has to do everything herself or does she believe that when she outsources and has a team to help her, her business thrives and she actually gets to be more successful, make more money and actually enjoy her business and her life so much more?
Think about that version of you who has time freedom and financial freedom, and is making the biggest impact she can make and loving her life in so many more ways than you can imagine. What does she believe about all those things?
Step 3. Embody that next-level version of you now
When you replace those beliefs, the most important thing that you can do is to embody that version of you NOW.
This is the step that too many people miss and too many people are too scared to take.
Get rid of those sh*tty beliefs that working hard = being more worthy of success and money. Decide that they’re gone. Then once you create those new empowering beliefs, this is the next step that comes with it – you have to take action on being that person now.
There’s no point identifying what your next-level beliefs are if you aren’t taking action and being that version of you now. You don’t become your next-level self if you’re still operating and acting as that old version of you. Create the beliefs, create the identity, and then become that version of you now.
Awareness is always the first step to change. The next step is action.
If you have a new belief that working less equals making more money, then actively try to find proof of that. Affirm it to yourself using affirmations and mantras. Take action by working less. If resistance from your old beliefs comes up, then go back to step 1 and repeat the process.
Choose to believe that working less can equal more money. Don’t think that there’s more you could be doing – there’s always more we could be doing. You’re here to make a big impact in a big way in a small amount of time.
This is the 3-step formula for shifting any belief – get rid of the beliefs, replace them and then be that version of you. When it comes to creating more flow, it’s about getting rid of those beliefs that working hard = more money, creating new beliefs around doing things with ease, and then creating the business and life that supports you showing up as that version of you.
Step 4. Surround yourself with people who share your empowered belief
This step is honestly one of the biggest things that has changed not just my business for the better, but it has changed my LIFE for the better.
The more that you can surround yourself with people who are in flow, who have the mindset that you’re trying to create and the beliefs that you’re starting to embody – the better.
You want to surround yourself with people who are high-level thinkers and who have all of those beliefs that you identified for your next-level empowered self.
Your vibe attracts your tribe – but there’s a flipside to this.
Your tribe is also going to attract your vibe.
Your vibe and how you’re acting will attract a certain type of person, but the people that you’re surrounding yourself with are also going to attract your vibe.
When you surround yourself with people who have the beliefs that support your dream life, your dream business and that next-level version of you, you will get there so much quicker.
Your closest friends, business besties and family members are the people who will affect your energy, your vibration and your beliefs. Personally, I know that every time I get in close proximity with someone who has the mindset and beliefs that my next-level version of me does, I know that I’m one step closer to getting there because I’m in close proximity to it.
Here’s the thing – when you surround yourself with people who project their sh*tty beliefs about money, success and worthiness, you’re basically just inviting all of those limiting beliefs back into your life. You’re self-sabotaging and making things hard for yourself.
Surround yourself with people who have those beliefs that you’re embodying. It will make it so much easier and it will make it happen quicker, because you’re in the energy of people who have those beliefs of your next-level self. When that happens, you will naturally operate from those beliefs and become your next-level self now.
Celebrate yourself and be around people that celebrate you and lift you up. Surround yourself with those high-vibe people who have expansive, high-level conversations and work through things in a positive way. It’s a much faster way to success, making more money, signing your soulmate dream clients with ease, and having way more flow and freedom in your business and in your life.
