Today the Universe just blew my mind.I signed up a new VIP client in my coaching business this morning, but that’s not what was mind blowing.
What blew my mind was how it happened.
Recently when I told you all that the reason for my success in business I believe is that I am 100% committed to being real, vulnerable and authentic. NO MATTER WHAT.
Today, this prospect told me what they needed with their business, and I realized that helping them what they described was not my “gift”. Sure, I could take them on, and I have taken on clients in the past who needed this service because of the money.
Sure, I still like making money, especially when it comes from VIP clients because it usually comes in chunks. Chunks of cash are good for business.
Today however, I remembered my commitment to myself to stay in my authentic power, and live what I teach. I told her I couldn’t take her on as a client.
What happened next was cool. She was so appreciative and so impressed that I would tell her the truth, and was so confident in what I did, she actually ASKED ME how we COULD work together.
We spoke for another 20 minutes, and at the end of the call she had signed up, and told me that the moment I told her that I couldn’t take her on as a client, she was so impressed and felt like I was a person of high integrity.
She felt drawn to me. It was almost like she couldn’t NOT hire me because my authenticity was like a magnet.
I am sharing this not to brag, but to inspire you to show up today and just BE WHO YOU ARE.
No excuses. No whining, no complaining. No nonsense.
Being truly raw and authentic is vulnerable, and there is risk. Today though, the Universe showed me that with great risk, can come great reward. It’s not about the money I made today, it’s about how just being me attracted an amazing new person in my life.
Today, by staying in my "lane" and sticking to what I'm best at, I actually was able to attract an absolutely ideal client.
If I had behaved like I did in the past, I would have still had the client, but we would have been working on an entirely different subject during our coaching. I would have been less effective, less happy, and she would have experienced less powerful results.
Stay in your lane. That's where you were BORN to serve!
