Few know about the power of pleasure.
How many times have I heard from clients and friends I was having fun and then I received this unexpected referral or I’ve started dating so and so and I feel so good and by the way I’ve made more sales this month than all of last year and I don’t know why or I just moved into my new place and I love it and I’ve had all these deals close this month and I don’t know why. Well I do! Each of these people were enjoying themselves in one way or another, in a state of allowing their natural state of well being to flow to them in ways they never would have imagined. Maybe you can relate to this. I realize there is this struggle within me and many others. It goes something like this; “I need to work harder”, “I need to focus more”, “I’m not doing enough”. Fact of the matter is, most of my clients I have allowed in when I least expected it. A referral from a current client, someone text messages me out of the blue, “I want to hire you to coach me”. I keep thinking of an acquaintance of mine and then that same person comes up via a mutual friend of ours and next thing I know I’m connecting with this person and she hires me and on and on it goes. Was I working hard at this? No. Was I taking action regularly in some capacity? Most definitely. Was I feeling good in general? Absolutely! The fine line between allowing abundance to flow to me in ways I never would imagine and suiting up and showing up for my life both personally and professionally on a regular basis. Doing the “feeling good work” and the “being a professional and taking strategic business actions regularly”. Never really knowing exactly where and how yet trusting that when I show up regularly for both it will happen, it will unfold in ways that will surprise and delight me and of course enjoying the journey along the way. That is living the art of allowing. Practicing the power of pleasure and being a responsible and successful adult in life both personally and professionally. Because really what’s the point of reaching the goal if we’re not enjoying ourselves along the way. I believe in striving for well being in all areas of my life as much as humanly possible. When I’m ninety and chillaxing in my comfy rocking chair rocking it on my porch I want to say and think to myself, “I really have enjoyed myself, my life kept getting better and better”.
